    Two stories from the Capitol K-9 Unit series. In PROTECTING VIRGINIA by SHIRLEE MCCOY (4 stars) Virginia Johnson has inherited her abusive late husband's home from her grandmother-in-law and finds a dangerous intruder there waiting to kill her. Luckily she has next door neighbor and K-9 Officer John Forrester there right when she needs him most. Enjoyable story with likable characters, and it was nice to finally have Virginia's story told. Not much Christmas in this one, though. In GUARDING ABIGAI Two stories from the Capitol K-9 Unit series.

Not much Christmas in this one, though. In GUARDING ABIGAIL by LENORA WORTH (5 stars) K-9 Officer Dylan Ralsey must protect a murdered diplomat's daughter, Abigail Wheaton, when her life is threatened. I really enjoyed this one a lot. The main couple was very likable and interesting and the storytelling really pulled me in. I enjoyed the touches of the holiday season that were sprinkled throughout, as well. Special mention goes to the two awesome and brave canines in these stories, Samson and Tico. These two entertaining stories can be read as stand-alones apart from the series.

    Protecting Virginia by Shirlee McCoy -- Seriously hair-raising opening. My heart revved up a notch and I felt like I was the one alone in that big ol' spooky house. Phew, McCoy packs a lot of danger and tension in a short word count. Along with the stirrings of a sweet holiday romance. Awesome combo. Guarding Abigail by Lenora Worth -- A riveting read.

    Capitol K-9 Unit Christmas is by Shirlee McCoy and Lenora Worth. It is two books in one: Protecting Virginia and Guarding Abigail. They are love inspired suspense books and are definitely full of excitement. They are simply fun to read, especially if you love dogs.

They are love inspired suspense books and are definitely full of excitement. They are simply fun to read, especially if you love dogs. In Protecting Virginia, John Forrester and his dog Samson are introduced to Virginia Johnson when he hears her screaming. He and Samson rush to help whoever is in danger. Virginia has returned to her Aunt Laurel’s home intending to clean it out and sell it. She wanted nothing to do with the house that at one time had been her home with her husband Kevin until Kevin revealed his true identity as an abusive husband. All the horrors he had inflicted on her until she finally killed him came back as she entered the house. However, what made her scream was the sight of her husband on the stairs and his voice silkily saying, “Ginny”. She screamed and ran from the house. What is going on and why did John feel she needed a protector? Can he keep her safe and sane while he figures out what is going on? Can he keep himself and his heart safe? Guarding Abigail is by Lenora Worth. Dylan Ralsey and his dog Tico are assigned to protect Abigail Wheaton, a diplomat’s daughter. Her father had just been killed overseas and indications are that Abigail is next in line to be killed. He must protect her until they manage to figure out who killed her father and why they might want to kill her. Everyone, even her long-time family servants and friends are suspect. The need for protection is brought to light when an attempt is made to kill her at her father’s funeral. Where can she go and be safe? Can Dylan and Tico keep her safe? Can they keep themselves free of entanglements? Both books are good but they are very predictable. They are good; but nothing stands out.

These books are such a treat to read, and I never get tired of Love Inspired books as the stories are of such variety plus the suspense keeps me reading for hours! Here, in this special novel, are two short stories written by one of the authors listed above. Both will keep you guessing as to how the mystery will end as well as any romance that is part of the tale. I loved both of the stories as two K-9 officers are in each story with their own special assignment and love interest. The trained dogs are something too as I imagine their training and the way they obey their handlers while also being sensitive to the women who are being protected from those who are seeking to kill them. In Protecting Abigail readers will enjoy watching a traumatized woman face her past and the fear connected with it while discovering something about her husband’s past she never knew. In Guarding Abigail, Washington’s elite ambassador has been assassinated and his daughter has now become a target. Both of the women feel a deep sense of helplessness while others put their lives on the line to end the reign of terror someone is bringing into their lives. Both are captivating and fast moving stories that will keep audiences up till they reach the conclusion! Enjoy! Disclosure of Material Connection: The above is my opinion.

    Two books in one—quick, easy reads. Good suspense and good characters although the stories are so short that the couples fall in love really quickly. Not sure I would trust the police in this town who are constantly checking for the bad guys and then still allowing them to slip in and cause problems. But without that, I guess we wouldn’t have a story.

    A continuation of the Capitol K-9 series with two short stories. It is great to see Virginia and John Forrester's relationship beginning while he protects her life. Then Dylan Ralsey, in the second story, finds a woman to love. Both stories reintegrate the courage of these great officers.

    Excellent!!!! This was a really riveting book. I liked the way the killer was not revealed until pretty much the end of the book. At least it wasn't obvious to me who was behind all the chaos.

    The story line was good and the writing was ok but the stories are way to short and rushed. You can't get a feel for the Characters and don't really get any emotion from them.

    Two great stories to end this series. All the books in the series were wonderful and this one was no different. Wish it would continue!

    A great Christmas collection, and a lovely addition to the Capitol K-9 Unit miniseries. Protecting Virginia by Shirlee McCoy ~ this one was my favourite. 5* Virginia Johnson has returned to the mansion she has inherited to tie up details of the estate and put it on the market. She has too many bad memories of this place, and just wants to get rid of it. Only it seems, someone wants to get rid of her! And that someone looks awfully like her late husband. But he's dead...isn't he? So who is after her? A great Christmas collection, and a lovely addition to the Capitol K-9 Unit miniseries.

But he's dead...isn't he? So who is after her? And why? Fortunately handsome next door neighbour K-9 Unit Police Officer John Forrester and his dog Samson are on hand ~ 2 heroes who will do anything to keep Virginia safe. I loved this story. It was nice to meet up with Virginia again from the Capitol K-9 Unit miniseries, and to find out her background and why she is like she is. I also liked that John Forrester & his K-9 partner Samson moved from a secondary character to a main one. It was like meeting up with old friends. Guarding Abigail by Lenora Worth. 4* K-9 Officer Dylan Ralsey and his dog Tico have been given the duty of protecting the daughter of a recently murdered diplomat. Dylan can only hope that he can also protect his heart. His last relationship with a wealthy socialite didn't end well and he doesn't want to go down that road again. But the lovely Abigail is making him rethink that. Somehow he needs to keep his head clear, because someone wants her dead. That is not going to happen on his watch! I also liked this one, and the fact that we catch up with Dylan from the Capitol K-9 series earlier in the year, and seeing him too move from a support player to a main character. Capitol K-9 Unit: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. I enjoyed this series, and so am pleased to find out that 2016's continuity by Love Inspired Suspense is again featuring a K-9 Unit.

    Capitol K-9 Unit have a tough job: trying to protect people from harm and take down criminals. Can the men protect their hearts long enough to keep their heads straight to protect the women they've been assigned to protect? Will the women survive ... and open their hearts?

Will the criminals be brought to justice? And your heart will melt every time you look into those beautiful pooch eyes (this cat-lover did). Virginia has a rough past. When a relative passes away, she learns that she's inherited a house. Things have her jumping, and her neighbor, a Capitol K-9 Handler and his pooch, keeps coming over to check things out. When things get even worse, will the K9 and his handler be able to bring the criminal to justice before Virginia is killed? And will two hearts who fought against love find each other? Abigail is a hot-headed, tough diplomat's daughter ... or was, until her father is killed. Assigned to protect her, Capitol K-9 Unit Handler and his pooch cast a weary eye on surroundings. When disaster strikes within the home despite his team's best efforts, will they find the killer before the true target is killed? And will love blossom between two stubborn, strong-willed folks? Love-Inspired suspense has a little bit of everything - suspense, comedy, romance, a faith challenge - and yet still a light read. This was the first book that I have read by either Shirlee McCoy or Lenora Worth, and it's actually the first book that I have read in the Capitol K-9 Unit series.

    I received a free copy of this book at RT16.

There was a lot of action in Protecting Virginia and I liked all the characters. It's a novella so it wasn't a problem for me that they decided to explore a commitment to each other in about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks. I had a lot more trouble with Guarding Abigail partly because I didn't really connect with the characters and partly because I didn't buy the ending. There are way too many issues to be resolved to consider the ending anything more than an HFN. I'm sure it's supposed to be an HEA, but to me it just didn't seem plausible with so many things between the couple left unresolved. I'm giving this a three star review rather than a two star one because this isn't my usual genre and what seemed odd to me might not seem odd to people who read more books like this one.

    Maybe because they were short stories, these moved quicker and came across as better tales about tails and their handlers. Two more members of the Capitol K-9 corps fall in love with the women they're protecting. The first is Virginia from the rest of the series.

    Two short stories. The first, written by Ms. McCoy, is good. The second drags it down. Ms. Worth is a good writer. I generally enjoy her books. This story seems "phoned in." I guess she expected me to ignore not ONE but TWO of the rules of mystery solving: 1. If there is a person who keeps showing up who does not seem to really have a function, that person really has a function; and, 2.

    I give this one 2.5 stars, in that one of the stories was worth a 2 and one worth a 3. The Worth story about Dylan Ralsey and his Malinois Tico is better than the McCoy story concerning Virginia Johnson from the All Our Kids Foster Home and officer John Forester with his shepherd Ransom. The Guarding Abigail story seemed to have a complete plot, while the Protecting Virginia appeared unfinished. More to the point, it seemed to be hollow, with an ending and almost no story, much less a love story.

    I actually liked Protecting Virginia better than Guarding Abigail. They both have strong characters but the writing style of Lenora Worth is not as smooth as Shirlee McCoy. Maybe I've just read more of Shirlee McCoy's books.
