Beowolf by Ronnie Kendig

(I received this book from the publisher on NetGalley, so I read it on my Kindle.)

I usually do not jump into a series of books at the last or the middle.

I am not a fan of all kinds of action going on and then the music swells and the protagonists gaze longingly into each others eyes and ba-boom the kiss. Fortunately, that does not happen here. Romance, yes... suspense laden romance which is my cup of tea. The back drop is Afghanistan, and I am not a fan of this... it seems this is military life, so we if we must, we must.

You do not have to read the first 2 in order to deeply appreciate this book. It is stand alone, and very well done stand alone. Character development is fever-pitched from the start and that makes the storyline extremely impactful. Kendig does a very nice job of storyline weaving in and throughout the characters. Where some fiction seems forced, this is a good story flow, without plot surprises coming from forced character actions--in other words, the characters are believable and act according to their profile with gradual changes for the better, changes toward harmony. That is rare these days.
However, with this book, I did. I really liked the Discarded Heroes series, so I figured this one would be excellent... and it is,  for the most part.


Former Navy handler Timbrel Hogan has more attitude than her Explosives Detection Dog, Beowulf, but she’s a tough woman who gets the job done.

Green Beret Tony “Candyman” VanAllen likes a challenge and convincing the hard-hitting handler they belong together might just get him killed. When tragedy strikes and Tony’s career is jeopardized, Timbrel must re-evaluate her life and priorities—and fast. A terrorist plots to unleash a weapon of mass destruction on American soil.

Can Timbrel and Beowulf track the chemicals in time? Will Tony surrender everything to save the woman nobody wants to love—except him?

4 of 5 stars
Good book worth the money.
