Did you grow up reading Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Mysteries? I did! Those types of books were what I spent all my spare time reading when I was in grade school. For me, even today, there is nothing better than a suspense/mystery. I usually get my "fix" on TV, but I received a pleasant surprise when I started digging into this series. As a child I would get pulled into the story and nothing could distract me until I had consumed the entire book. That could be why Texas K-9 Unit Series Books 1-3 were such a fun read for me.
I read book 1 of the series for this review and it was spectacular!! I sat down with a cup of coffee and the book, and consumed the entire book in a matter of hours. It is a masterfully written mystery intertwined with stories of faith, hope, and love. The main characters are developed beautifully which helps the story flow smoothly throughout the length of the book. The plot of the story is believable which helps you put yourself in the characters shoes. There is also a sweet love story that develops as you continue through the storyline. I have all girls, and I would have no problem having them read these books. Although there is a love story that flows throughout the book, there is nothing inappropriate or surprising about it.
As an adult, I had really gotten away from fiction, but these books are a great choice when it comes to Christian fiction! I am so glad that I took the time to invest in reading these wonderful books. They draw you in from the very beginning and keep you held in suspense to the end. I have no doubt that you will enjoy these books. I am buying a set for my daughters to read as well. These stories take you on a journey and shows that even in difficult situations, God is there. These are a must for lovers of Christian Fiction!!
About the authors:
Shirlee McCoy has always loved making up stories. As a child she daydreamed elaborate tales in which she was the heroine — gutsy, strong and invincible. Though she soon grew out of her superhero fantasies, her love for storytelling never diminished. Shirlee knew early that she wanted to write inspirational fiction and began writing her first novel when she was a teenager. Still, it wasn't until her third son was born that she truly began pursuing her dream of being published. Three years later she sold her first book. Now a busy mother of four, Shirlee is a homeschool mom by day and an inspirational author by night. She and her husband and children live in Maryland and share their home with a dog and a guinea pig.
Margaret has been writing for over 35 years. She started writing in the late 1970s because she wanted to see if she could put a whole story down on paper. That book is still in the drawer and will never see the light of day. But she was able to finish a book, which was her goal. She loved teaching and working with students with special needs, and recently retired from teaching to write full-time. When she isn't working, she loves to read, travel, and go to lunch and a movie with a friend. She and her husband, Mike, to whom she has been married for over 40 years live in Tulsa. Besides teaching and writing, she is also a mother of one. Her son, Shaun, is married with four daughters.
Sharon Dunn first fell in love with mystery and suspense about the time she read Nancy Drew mysteries in the fifth grade. Her first book in the Ruby Taylor mysteries Romance Rustlers and Thunderbird Thieves was a finalist for the Romantic Times
Inspirational Book of the Year. The second book in that series Sassy Cinderella and the Valiant Vigilante was voted Book of the Year by American Christian Fiction Writers. Her hobbies include reading, working out, hiking, trying to find things around the house and making pets out of the dust bunnies under the furniture. Before she started writing, she used to sew. Now she just collects fabric and patterns and fantasizes about projects. After nearly twenty seven years of marriage, Sharon lost her beloved husband in 2014. She lives with her three nearly grown children, two cats and a nervous border collie named Bart.
