Booklist Review

When Destiny Millbrook is walking Fleur, her Labrador retriever, in a quiet park late one night, she defends herself from a strangler with a whack of her baseball bat. The police detective on duty is Daniel Parks, who finds that the fallen strangler has fled and left no evidence at the scene. Later, when Destiny is lured to a deserted beach and both she and Dan are shot at, she and Fleur move in with him and his cat for safety until the perpetrator can be caught. Meanwhile sparks fly to ignite a romance as the pair try to solve the mystery of why anyone would want to kill Destiny. This light, entertaining read has many of the same elements that make Annie Kimberlin's romances enjoyable--a beautiful, strong, independent, resourceful librarian (who reads books); a hero who is as intelligent as he is handsome (and also reads books); a dog; a little humor; and not too much or too explicit sex. --Diana Tixier Herald
