BENEATH THE BADGE - book 4 in the FIRST RESPONDERS series - is a contemporary romance that packed a lot into just over one hundred pages.  Not having read the first three books in the series I thought I would be at a disadvantage but while there were some holes I couldn't fill in there was background information provided by the author which helped the story flow.

Alward's BENEATH THE BADGE has characters with issues that take a while to get to know and these issues are what helped to mold them to who they are.  When they opened their hearts to reveal what was inside I was very glad for it helped move the story along and gave credence to their actions.  There was family, friends, animals, cases, romance and love.  There was a happily ever after that we learned in the epilogue and I was glad we did. I don't know if there are other books planned in this series but I hope there are so we can reunite with a wonderful group of first responders.

There was an excerpt at the back of the book for book three of this series, INTO THE FIRE which I would like to go back and read along with the first two books - OFF THE CLOCK and IN THE LINE OF DUTY.  There was also an excerpt from another of her books - SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER - that also seems like a book I would enjoy.  I will be looking for other books the author has written so I can add them to my TBR pile.
