Welcome, Melanie. Glad to have you here this week!
Hi, Deena! Thank you so much for the chance to share my newest book with your readers.
Frozen in Jeopardy is book 2 in the Danger in Destiny series. This is a romantic suspense series set in the fictional town of Destiny, Texas. Officer Gabe Harrison is in a race against time when he discovers veterinarian Paige Wade is in danger. But who is after his friend and why makes no sense. Can he and his K-9 partner keep her alive long enough to unravel the puzzle?
When it comes to romance tropes, I love reading and writing best friends to more. In this case, Gabe and Paige have known each other since middle school. In high school, they both cared a great deal for each other, but after Paige experienced the loss of two family members, she vowed to never marry someone in the armed or police forces. While she and Gabe remained friends, their feelings for each other were pushed to the background for years. I thoroughly enjoyed watching them work together and realize those feelings never went away.
On the mystery and suspense side of the story, the research that went into this book was a lot of fun. I had the opportunity to go on a ride-along with a local police officer in the K-9 unit. I met his dog, got to watch them perform a search, and was able to ask a ton of questions. I also visited with our veterinarian about what goes into treating dogs with a serious injury, what the recovery is like, and how things are set up at the animal hospital. Both were a huge help when it came to being able to write so many details into my story.
Danger in Destiny is a series that focuses on the everyday heroes who rely on faith and work tirelessly to help their community, friends, and loved ones. They have been a true blessing to write.
Thanks so much for sharing about your book, Melanie. How exciting to ride along with a police officer in their K-9 unit! I love the focus on everyday heroes in our communities. I wish you the best with your writing.
