Explosive Secrets by Valerie Hansen

My post today is a review on the book Explosive Secrets. It is the fourth book in the Texas K-9 Unit Series by Love Inspired Suspense. This book is written by Valerie Hansen and she has done a great job on it. This has been an awesome series and I can't wait for the next episode. I know you will love it.

In the last book, the Serpent, Arianna Munson was killed. She was a middle man in the crime syndicate but before she died she muttered the words,"cousin, code, danger" This book deals with the aftermath of that deathbed confession. Nicki Johnson, the said cousin is now receiving bomb threats. She has not had anything to do with her cousin in years and has no idea what code she was talking about. Arianna had little use for Nicki and Nicki is sure this was a set up. Nicki is a new Christian that is trying to trust in a God she barely knows plus the fact that she is a few weeks pregnant and is having a hard time with her job at a truck stop.

Jackson Worth is a K-9 officer that deals with bomb threats. He is very attracted to Nicki but doesn't know if he can believe her story about her cousin. To keep her safe his boss has him offer Nicki a job as his cook at his ranch when she is fired. Jackson and his Uncle Harold, a retired cop, set out to protect her without getting involved in her life and the babies.

This is a fast paced story about a heart broken girl just trying to make a life for herself and her unborn baby. She had been such a fool to trust the baby's father now she has to be strong and stay away from men but Jackson is so sweet and so protective. How do you fight that?

Jackson couldn't believe that Nicki was involved in this sordid mess. yet how did he trust her when everyone else believed her guilty. Jackson had to fight this attraction and do his job. Drawn to this woman and her child he began to change his thoughts about never having a family.

A very exciting and intriguing story. I loved these characters and their love story. I hope you run out and get a copy. Thanks for visiting my blog, God bless you all.


  1. Thanks, Glenda. I loved writing about the bomb-sniffing Labrador retriever. Even went out and adopted another rescued black lab while I was writing it and she (Lucy) now sleeps under my desk while I'm working. You'll find pics of her and Charlie Brown, my chocolate lab, on and my facebook page,
