Hunting the Truth
Book 2 in the National Forest K-9 Series
“Hide, Maya. Don’t let the bad people find you.”
Those are the last words Forest Service law enforcement officer and K-9 handler Maya Thompson ever heard her mother say.
Returning to the Colorado mountains, ex-soldier Maya is no longer a scared little girl. She’s here to investigate her mother’s cold case, but fear creeps in when it comes to her personal life—things are getting serious with sheriff deputy Josh Colten.
After new DNA evidence surfaces, both her beloved grandfather and Josh warn her away from the case, suspecting that she could be the next victim. But Maya doesn’t listen.
Instead, Maya and her K-9 partner, Juniper, track a suspect deep into the forest and directly into grave danger…
In Donnelly’s page flipping follow-up to Chasing Justice, we find that truth itself can be as twisty and sharp as barbed wire.

“U.S. Forest Service law enforcement officer Maya Thompson and her K-9 partner, Juniper, come out swinging in Maya’s quest to solve the cold case murders of both her mother and grandmother. But an ice-cold killer has something entirely different in mind… and Maya finds herself in the crosshairs. In Donnelly’s page flipping follow-up to Chasing Justice, we find that truth itself can be as twisty and sharp as barbed wire.”

“If you love mysteries, strong, human, central characters, and dogs, you’ll love Hunting the Truth. Start reading the second book in Kathleen Donnelly’s National Forest K-9 series and you won’t put it down. At its heart are Maya and Juniper, the handler/canine team that follow the trails, survive the battles, and have each other’s backs. Maya is determined to get to the truth of her past. Along the way we learn about her terrible losses, and the toll it has taken on her life. Thankfully, she is assisted in her quest by the uber-sleuth Juniper. The Malinois has more spunk, life and smarts (and antics) than Lassie and Rin-Tin-Tin combined. And did I mention the romance? There are sparks in this novel. I am looking forward to the Maya/Josh flame that is certain to find its full flower in the next National Forest K-9 series. And I can’t wait to see what Juniper chews up next.”
—Cary Griffith, author of The Sam Rivers Mystery series
“Five stars! The excitement of adventure, mystery, and slow-build romance possibility of Book 1 gave intrigue as to how Book 2 would progress. For this reader, it was a page-turning read that kept me on the edge of my seat. I highly recommend this series. I can’t wait to read the further developments.”
