RISING DANGER by Jerusha Agen, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney


"Chaos assaulted her as soon as she opened the door."

Could it have been avoided? Maybe, but probably not. Bristol Bachmann and her specially trained black Labrador retriever were prepared to locate and disarm, if necessary, explosive devices; with an entire dam full of water tottering on the brink of disaster, time was of the essence. They had been warned, which was disconcerting enough, but nothing had prepared Bristol for what happened next, or should she say, "who".

"Even in Rem's wildest dreams, he never would have thought a bomb would bring Bristol Bachmann back into his life." In charge of dam safety and security for the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, Remington Jones had been working hard to re-establish his life in a positive trajectory. There was no time to waste reminiscing about the mistakes of his past, Bristol and Rem had an environmental terrorist on their hands whose message had been clear, "the river must be freed, no matter the cost".

When the perpetrator sets his sights on Bristol and her dog, the entire Phoenix K-9 Security and Detection Agency rallies to her aid, but it's Remington who is trying his best to demonstrate that a man can change; supporting Bristol in any way that he can, believing that second chances are possible, craving a happy ending. . . but perfection is a pretty unrealistic goal . . . and it seems that Bristol will accept nothing less.

"You can't save everyone. Only God can, and that's a good thing because He is good. Only God can take things that are bad and make them into something good, something beautiful."

As the waters of difficulty and despair seem to rise above all hope, this novel is a poignant reminder that God's love transcends mistakes, regrets, and misunderstanding. A thriller of a story!

BackCover Blurb:

It’s up to a K-9 handler and her canine partner to stop a bomber before it’s too late.

Someone’s planting explosives on dams in the Twin Cities, and Bristol Bachmann and her bomb-sniffing dog must move quickly to find them before everything ends up underwater. That means relying on the dams’ supervisor—an ex-boyfriend Bristol never thought she’d see again. Hopefully Remington Jones has grown up from the rakish charmer she knew in her academy days. Because lives now depend entirely on them…

It’s an environmental terrorist who wants the dams gone, and his bid to set the waters free has lethal consequences. When he sees Bristol and her K-9 working to stop him, he sets his sights on them. Can they evade him in a lethal game of cat and mouse and protect the cities from devastating destruction before the clock runs out?

A thrilling must-read novel from Love Inspired: Stories to Uplift and Inspire.
