Kelly meets Rick while she is visiting her grandfather and the sparks fly.  Kelly also has a dog that is considered a one person dog which tolerates family members, but Xena seems to take to Rick immediately. 

The third book of the Phoenix Agency series is a very intense suspense story that keeps your interest almost from the start.  I got a little upset when I got interrupted while reading because I did not want to stop reading Delicious Danger.  The author did a lot of research on the Caucasian Ovcharka; I had to look it up as I had never heard of this dog and I am glad I got a chance to learn about them. 

Kelly, Rick and Xena are the main characters that are trying to solve the mystery of who is trying to destroy Phoenix.  Even though the mystery of this particular incident is solved, it does not totally solve the mystery of who is behind the destruction. Because of the way the secondary characters are intertwined into the series, you do need to read these books in order.  The reason Phoenix was created could very much be right in tune to today’s world with all the problems around us.  Both Kelly and Rick are very strong and conscious of their abilities and make no apologies for it.  I did have to laugh at a few of Xena’s antics though.  

The chemistry between Kelly and Rick is explosive so keep plenty of ice on hand.  Some of the interaction between the two is quite entertaining.  This is definitely one for the bookshelf and one series I will be reading again. 

Publisher's Note: Previously published as Scent of Danger with The Lotus Circle and then Cerridwen Press, this book has been revised and the bedroom door opened for Ellora's Cave.
