This book had so much potential, and some parts were brilliantly done. There's plenty of action sequences to keep things moving, and the police officer's funeral was a stand out moment in the story. There are other things going on at the time, including officers watching for Sophie's stalker, but the funeral is the focus and it's a scene that is absolutely heartbreaking. That said, I did have some problems with this one. The biggest being the ending, and not because we don't get all the answers. I'm okay with that. What I don't get is why this guy in the hat was so hell bent on killing Sophie, and for me, the explanation at the end is sorely lacking. It seemed to me that he went through an awful lot to tie up a loose end who couldn't identify him any better than she did, especially when he gets repeatedly noticed only because of the hat! For all the action and intrigue, I just felt disappointed once our hatted villain finally gets to speak. The romance also falls into the problem category for me. I didn't buy this pair as a romantic couple. We're told throughout that there's an attraction, but Luke and Sophie go from work acquaintances to friends to crazy in love in a matter of days. I get that they've known each other a long time, but this is the first chance for them to really get to know each other. It's a bit too much like instalove for me. On a positive note, the story is clean with a passionate kiss being as racy as it gets, and I did like that faith and prayer plays a role in the characters' lives. In the end, the pros and cons were about equal for me, leaving me smack in the middle range. As I understand it, this series will be written by various authors with the continuing arc of who killed Jordan. Given my mixed feelings with this one, I'm still on the fence about whether or not I'll continue with the series.

Good solid read as would be expected from Ms Eason. The plot centers around Sophie (K-9 Unit Chief's admin assistant) and Luke (K-9 officer handler). They are drawn together over the disappearance of the K-9 Unit Chief (the subplot). Sophie can identify the man involved in the disappearance, and he wants to eliminate loose end Sophie. Luke takes on Sophie's protection, and boy does she need protection. Of course they discover they have feelings for each other, which both try to deny to themselves. The characters are believable and strong. You can be sure that each will have a story of their own as the series develops. The key is to discover what happened to the Chief. We find that out, at least in part, early on. But, the full details are left to be discovered later, as well as the person(s) involved in the Chief's disappearance as the series progresses.

Justice Mission by Lynette Eason is the first book in the True Blue K-9 Unit series. The book starts with an action packed opening scene. Sophie’s boss is missing and she walks in on a suspisious stranger who ends up trying to kidnap her. Luke is one of the K-9 officers and is protecting Sophie while also trying to figure out what is going on. Has their boss committed suicide, has he ran off or has he been kidnapped? Several of his relatives are involved in the search and you are not sure if they are involved. His wife just found out she is pregnant. The action and suspense were well done. The relationship between Luke and Sophia developed naturally. Luke had always assumed she was too young for him so he had not given her much notice. As he gets to know her their feelings start developing for each other. I enjoyed the romance and suspense. I am thrilled to see the next books in the series. I received this book from Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review. You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.

As the start of a new multi-author series, Justice Mission introduced the world of the K-9 unit in New York City, delivering intense suspense and action, paired with emotional scenes, danger, even death, and a touch of romance on the side as well as adorable, caring canine companions. The Love Inspired romantic suspense books have the three major elements that are expected to be present in each story: the suspense, the romance, and the faith in God the protagonist have. Some stories lay more heavily on one element than the other, and in some books, like in Justice Mission, the faith was more of an assumed part of the characters lives. The suspense and mystery, the action that the investigation brought on, is vigorous, engaging the minds of the members of the unit, as well as mine, as the reader. The missing leader of the unit, and the family connections he had within the force, and in his personal life, as well as the threat to his assistant, Sophie Walters, brought sentimental, emotion-filled moments into the midst of the research into his disappearance. The case is not solved in this book, even though the immediate danger to Sophie is sorted out. There are many tears throughout the tale while the unit is desperately looking for answers, but the funeral scene for a fallen cop had me sopping uncontrollably, as each vivid moments, with all the feels, were tangible in the air. The final call at the end of the service left an echo into my mind and heart, just a devastatingly sad yet honorable moment that will be hard to forget or walk away from. I wish the chemistry between Sophie and NYPD officer Luke Hathaway would have been as palpable. They have an obvious connection, it is clear that they care for each other, and even that they are interested in each other, but the maudlin atmosphere of the investigation overpowers nearly everything else in the tale as the stage for the rest of the series is set. I did enjoy getting to know everyone, and Sophie and Luke especially. They both have to do some soul searching to be able to open up for a relationship, and especially Luke's pondering was well documented while he fights against the budding attraction to a much younger (nine years, a problem to him, not to me) woman. Justice Mission whet my appetite to the rest of the series that will keep unfolding each month for the rest of the year. The characters are intriguing, the interactions between them are arresting, and I am looking forward to getting to know them all better. The story is filled with emotions, from tangible fear and danger, sorrow and despair, to hope and love, and of course, spiced up with adorable canines from working K-9 four-legged officers to delightful puppies. An effectively engaging and appealing start of a series filled with potent, deadly danger and harsh, rough action ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

As personal assistant to Chief of Police - K-9 Unit, Jordan Jameson, Sophie Walters' duties included setting up for the graduation ceremony of their K-9 officers and their handlers. When she catches a man messing with the folder containing Jordan's remarks, she immediately questions his presence. When he responds by taking her captive, she fights with all she has to stay out of his car, and in the process, captures fellow officer, Luke Hathaway's attention. Arriving a bit early for the K-9 graduation, Luke is stunned to see Sophie being dragged from the auditorium into a waiting vehicle. He rushes to her aid, only to chase the car into crashing. His presence is the only thing that makes the kidnapper flee, leaving Sophie injured, but alive. When she explains what happened, his suspicions mount. Going back to the auditorium, they check the folder, and discover what appears to be a suicide note, written in Jordan's hand. No one who knows him, believes he would do that, and Sophie knows another secret that makes it an impossibility in her mind. Can they find Jordan before someone makes the note come true? Following some suspicious near misses, it becomes clear that Sophie, herself, is also in danger. Can Luke and his dog, Bruno, keep her safe from the menace stalking her? What a great start to the True Blue K-9 Unit continuation series! I am a fan of Lynette Eason's and read everything I can get my hands on that she has written. Her suspense is always gripping, and the romance is usually strong. Romantic suspense readers can never go wrong picking up an Eason book, in my opinion, and Justice Mission is a strong case for that. I definitely recommend this Love Inspired Suspense title! I received this book from the publisher, but every opinion is my own!

I am a lover of dogs, and this is an author I have always enjoyed reading. With non-stop action and a lot of attempted murders, some answers come, but be aware this book becomes a cliff hanger, and although I have my guess to whom the culprit is, you won’t have the ending you have been looking forward to. With dogs everywhere, wonderful animals, and more arriving, they have their work cut out for them, and one is missing! The story has a bit of sweet romance, but the grief is almost over whelming here. There are more books to come in this K-9 series, and then all will be revealed. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
