    Two short stories set at Christmastime from the Love Inspired Suspense "Texas K-9 Unit" series--Holiday Hero by Shirlee McCoy and Rescuing Christmas by Terri Reed. I enjoyed both of the stories. The leads were likable and I loved all the dogs. It was also nice to catch up with familiar characters--both human and canine--from the previous K-9 Unit books. Although this book is part of a series, it can stand on its own without reading the previous books.

    Texas K-9 Unit Christmas is 2 short stories that take place in Sagebrush, Texas. It's part of the Texas K-9 Unit series for Love Inspired Suspense. All of these books are stand alone so you don't need to read them in order to enjoy this one. The first story is Holiday Hero by Shirlee McCoy. I really enjoyed this one. It had more of a family feel to it. Emma and Lucas were childhood friends, so it made for an easy transition to a romance. I also loved Emma's Aunt Bea. She was so sweet.

It had more of a family feel to it. Emma and Lucas were childhood friends, so it made for an easy transition to a romance. I also loved Emma's Aunt Bea. She was so sweet. When Emma is attacked while working on her new diner, she meets her childhood friend and his K-9 partner. There is wonderful chemistry between these two. I only wish that it wouldn't have been so easy to know who the criminal was, or at least the motives of the criminal. I found myself wanting to scream at Lucas to look to the past to find out who was after Emma. Overall, this was a nice read, more on the romance side then the suspense. Rescuing Christmas is just the opposite. This story is more suspenseful. Dog trainer Lily is being stalked. She escapes a kidnapper and runs straight for offer Jarrod Evans, whose dog she's supposed to be training. For the most part of the story, you think you know who is after her...but Terri Reed throws you a curve ball at the end. I liked that both Jarrod and Lily had things in their past that made them a little weary of getting close to people. There was a lot of romantic tension between these two, but you didn't get the feel that this was a romance. This story was definitely darker and at times a lot more scary, complete with building blowing up and other assorted bomb threats! Both were good reads and the K-9s from both stories were wonderful characters, though I have to admit Ranger and Max were my favorite police pooches.

Rescuing Christmas by Terri Reed I enjoyed Rescuing Christmas. Too see some old friends from previous books and meet new ones. This is a short novella. Clean Christian for both stories. This story starts off with Lily running away from her kidnapper in the woods. She has no idea who or why she was kidnapped. She runs across a road and almost gets hit. Jarrod was coming to Sagebrush to get his dog some training from Lily when he almost hits her. He sees she is injured and calls for help. Jarrod is asked if he will help guard Lily and she can still help work his dog. Lots of action, Drama and faith in God. I like Lily and Jarrod. Liked also the glimpse of how different K-9 dogs are trained.

    I haven't read any of Shirlee McCoy's previous books in the Texas K-9 Unit series, but I was still able to enjoy this book -- even without know any of the backstory to the minor characters. I liked both novellas and I can't really pick a favorite of the two. Both had suspense and romance...I did like how in the first story the MCs knew each other growing up, so it kind of avoided the insta-love romance. All in all, a good read. I look forward to reading more books by this author. *I received a com I haven't read any of Shirlee McCoy's previous books in the Texas K-9 Unit series, but I was still able to enjoy this book -- even without know any of the backstory to the minor characters.

    I totally loved these continuations of the K-9 series. Each story was heartwarming. Shirlee McCoy always hits the spot. The only thing that was missing from the second story was an epilogue. It left so many questions to what happened next. Otherwise, I totally love the main two characters and their growth.

She wasn't anticipating someone attacking her as she left her restaurant for the day, or being rescued by her old childhood friend Lucas. Lucas is now a member of the city;s K-9 unit and has appeared to grown up well. Some things haven't changed though, like his love of old trucks, or the knowledge of what Emma enjoys most, or the fondness he has always had for Emma. Emma doesn't plan to put down permanent roots in Sagebrush. Her plan is to stick around and help her auntie until she passes, get the restaurant up and running successfully, and then leave once her last personal tie to the city is gone. Only she forgot about Lucas who knows her so well. And after confirming that the prep is still after her, he's not going anywhere until she's safe. This book is a bit more subtle about the christian fiction aspect of this book. While it has numerous christian romance cliches going on, it was a nice enough fluff read. In Conclusion A more subtle christian fiction that doesn't rub it in your face. Short and to the point. Feels like a bit of a insta-love despite the childhood friend background. I'll probably forget I've read it in a few short months because it's a pure fluff read to me. But all in all wasn't terrible. Thoughts and Plot for Rescuing Christmas Someone is trying to kill Lilly Anderson. Despite her using her mother's maiden name to disguise the fact her father is a judge in Dallas, someone has found her. Could it be her college love turned attacker? Jarrod Evans is a Dallas policeman training with a new partner to become a k-9 unit cop. On the way to Sagebrush to meet up with dog trainer Lilly Anderson when he almost runs her over when she appears out of nowhere in the night he finds himself feeling overly protective of this pretty little woman. This book...It's more interesting than the Holiday Hero story but is blaringly Christian fiction with God getting credit for just about everything, mother's attending prayer groups and therefore leaking information about the whereabouts of her daughter (which she wasn't supposed to do). Most of that can be made up for for various kidnapping attempts and bombings. lol Almost. This one is an insta-love. No doubt about it. Aqua-eyes Jarrod and petite dirty blonde with gold highlights Lilly are into each other the moment they lay eyes on each other. Lilly makes the bold first move and then freaks out and tries to make Jarrod forget about it because heaven forbid a woman be a bit forward! In Conclusion God is constantly brought to the forefront. It's an Insta-love, but at least things explode.

    I loved being able to revisit Slade McNeal's small town police force. The twin novellas had call backs to the earlier series (dogs and human partners alike) without being overly distracting. The reunion story had a stronger storyline. My biggest problem was it was unclear to me if the two stories were happening simultaneously. All in all, a nice escapist read.

    Abigails father was killed by a Political group. He was a diplomat. At the funeral someone tries to kill Abigail. She has the Capital K-9 unit to protect. Her Dylan and his dog are in charge of the team and sparks are flying between him and Abigail. Another really good book. I love the K-9 books. They are great and will keep you on the edge of your seat.

    I enjoyed this book that included two novellas about the adventures of the Texas K-9 unit. Characters from previous books in the series took part in the adventures. Shirlee McCoy and Terri Reed are two of my favorite writers in this series.

    Really enjoyed this story. It was fast paced and the characters were multidimensional. These two stories were a good ending for the Texas K-9 Unit series. Each of the stories in this series was unique in its own way and the characters were fun to meet. Definitely read all the books in this series.

Emma's childhood f Texas K-9 Unit Christmas is a pair of christian romance novellas; Holiday Hero by Shirlee McCoy and Rescuing Christmas by Terri Reed. A new edition of this pairing is scheduled to be released on November 5th 2013. In Holiday Hero by Shirlee McCoy readers meet Emma Fairchild, who has returned to her childhood home in order to care for an ailing Aunt Bea. One night Emma is trying to paint and prep her new restaurant for its upcoming opening when she is attacked and left for dead. Emma's childhood friend, and current K-9 officer, Lucas Harwood finds her and starts on a search for justice. Can he get to the bottom of the attack, and perhaps find love along the way? Holiday Hero was a cute story with some suspense. I enjoyed the reuniting of childhood friends, and first loves, becoming more. However the story did not stand out as fantastic for me. I liked Aunt Bea's character and the care that Emma has for her. I also liked Lucas for the most part. Emma was a decent character and I loved the danger and suspense that she faces, but for some reason I just could not connect to her. I think that it might have been because of my frame of mind while reading rather than any fault in the writing. In Rescuing Christmas by Terri Reed, Lily Anderson is a K-9 dog trainer that has managed to escape a kidnapping but has a killer hot on her heels. Jarrod Evans was supposed to be her student, but after a fateful meeting he has declared himself her bodyguard until the threat has been dealt with. Now, more that just her life is at risk. Rescuing Christmas was a novella that just struck me as a little too short. I wanted a little more about Lily and Jarrod. I know novellas are supposed to be short, and this is part of a longer series, but I felt like I wanted to know the characters better. I am fairly sure that these two characters, and several of the side characters, have significant background stories in the series, but since I have only read one or two books, I feel like I was missing some of the most interesting background and future details. My other annoyance is stemmed from the mystery, because there was no way for me to know who the big bad was. Every suspense or mystery should include a chance for the reader to actually solve the mystery, that is half the fun! I did enjoy reading Texas K-9 Unit Christmas, and for the most part felt satisfied when it was over. I would recommend it to readers that have enjoyed the other books in the series or the other writing from either of the authors. For readers (like myself) that typically avoid christian romance, I will say that the religious moments were very well done and very in character for the most part. There were a couple moments that I felt like I was being reminded that I had to add the term "Christian" to any discussion to the book, but for the most part it was natural. The mystery and suspense portion was very well done, aside from the moment of frustration I mentioned above, and there were some very high action moments that worked very well.

    Texas K-9 Unit Christmas is two stories in one. The first story is Holiday Hero by Shirlee McCoy. I thought it was cute and very quick to read. The characters were fun, though I thought it took them forever to figure who was after Emma and the reason why. I did love the ending and overall enjoyed the whole story. The second story is Rescuing Christmas by Terri Reed. This story started out okay, but then got a little dull.

I thought what happened just before the ending (view spoiler)[how Jarrod left Lily to go interview the suspect and Lily was allowed to leave the safe house and be by herself, was silly. Even though they thought he was the guy, they didn't know for certain and you'd think Jarrod would of wanted to be sure Lily had someone around her until they knew for sure. (hide spoiler)] was a little silly. However, the ending I thought was cute and sweet. Overall, an okay story.

    I really enjoyed his book, which is actually two stories in one. I usually don't care for romance novels, but these were also suspense - so that made them more enjoyable for me. I have more of the Love Inspired Suspense books, so I will probably read them now. These stories were interesting, and they held my attention until the end; plus, they were both written to where they are totally believable, and I could see them actually happening to someone.

    I didn't realize this was two short stories. I usually stay away from such books just due to personal preference, but I really enjoyed the series. While the stories were good, I did feel that things were a bit rushed. I think this was more due to the length of space the authors were allotted than anything else. Both ladies had written at least one full length book in the series and I enjoyed those as well. I didn't realize this was two short stories.

    Disappointing. There are two novellas. The first one is pretty standard fare. The second was exciting, and I thought it might redeem the book, but {SPOILER ALERT} there was no way I could even try to solve the mystery, as, right at the end, a figure even the female protagonist did not know was introduced as the "bad guy." Bummer. Disappointing. There are two novellas. The first one is pretty standard fare.

    2 in 1 short stories with a Christmas setting. Both involve police officers bad their 4 footed partners. This is an ongoing series with a nice little Christian message that is by no means overpowering. Both books involve stalkers in this small town setting. The dogs add a nice set of characters. Enjoy this quick reads in this busy season.
