For wealthy socialite Katrina Vandenburg, business meetings and charity galas are all part of her orderly, structured world—one that gets blown to hell after finding two dead bodies in the same day. The police think she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. FBI Special Agent Dayne Andrews thinks otherwise. Dayne and his K-9, Remy, are tracking a cold-blooded killer, and that trail...leads straight to Kat.
Kat and her rescue shelter—the Canine Haven—are the only common denominators between the murders, and Dayne is convinced she’s dead center in the killer’s sights. Protecting her will test every ounce of his steely resolve. She’s the most intriguing woman he’s ever met. And everything he shouldn’t want. Too bad neither of them seem to have gotten the memo.
And they need to focus on catching a killer now more than ever. Because if Dayne and Remy fail in their mission, nothing will stand between Kat and the killer’s deadly blade
Narrated by Vanessa Daniels, Trap ‘N’ Trace by Tee O’Fallon offered a suspenseful, sometimes frustrating romantic suspense that kept me listening.
I’ve read the previous Federal K-9 novels, and in fact had this book on my TBR pile, but when the chance to listen came up, I grabbed it. I am glad that I did. I often limit my audiobook listens to other genres, and this was a fantastic listen.
Katrina Vandenburg is a wealthy socialite who spends her time between a rescue shelter for animals and handling charity galas for non-profits’ she believes in. When she returns a lost puppy, she finds the owner murdered.
FBI Special Agent Dayne Andrews, partners with the local police when it’s discovered that the murder victim was former FBI. When another victim is found at the Canine Haven shelter, Dayne’s convinced there is a connection.
The murder-mystery was interesting, and while I easily figured out the connection, I didn’t know the how. It was suspenseful and kept me engaged.
I loved Remy, the K-9, and the lost pup. They were robust characters in the story. I love how O’Fallon makes the animals an integral part of the story. It is clear she loves animals.
The romance was a slow burn at the beginning with obvious physical attraction. When they connected, it was hot and felt genuine. I got frustrated when miscommunications and social standings got in the way but appreciated the growth.
Each of the stories in the Federal K-9 series work as standalone and Trap ‘N’ Trace worked wonderfully on audio. Vanessa Daniels was perfect for Kat. Her male voices weren’t over-exaggerated or horse-sounding. She enhanced my overall enjoyment and allowed me to slip into the story.

I enjoyed this too, but I wanted more dogs or more of their work. Remy’s skills weren’t matched for this really so I was surprised they let Dayne stay with this case. Wonderful review!
Glad to see the series is still going strong.
I’ve got the first book and know I will love this series since I enjoy working animal stories. This latest sounds interesting with her being into charity and volunteer work and him an FBI agent.
Hi Sophia, I hope you enjoy the book! I just happened to see this review on the same day it came out. Best wishes, Tee.
I love a slow burn romance Kim especially in a romantic suspense. Thanks for the review
I love the sound of this book, especially with the dogs. I will look for this book at the library. 🙂
I hope you enjoy the book, Anca!
It’s great to see it was once again a good read!
