Theo Bosco is not in a good place in his life. Having lost
both his mentor and his K9 partner, Theo just wants to be
left alone. The last thing he needs is to be interested in
the squirrelly new waitress who seems very leery of cops.
Theo knows he should just walk away and go back to dealing
with the mess his life has become, especially trying to get
his new K9 partner, Viggy, to work with him. It's just his
bad luck that Viggy likes Jules and her family more than he
After kidnapping her siblings from an abusive situation,
Jules Jackson finds herself working as a waitress in a local
diner in Monroe, Colorado. Jules has more than enough going
on in her life without the complication of a broody cop
coming into her life. No matter how much she fights it
though, the attraction is too strong to ignore. While trying
to juggle her new life with her siblings, her budding
relationship and the looming threat from her past, Jules
doesn't even see the threat that's much closer to home until
it's too late.
I became an instant fan of Katie Ruggle's after reading her
previous Search and Rescue series and couldn't
wait to read
RUN TO GROUND. The first book in Ruggle's new Rocky
Mountain K9 Unit series, RUN TO GROUND has all the elements
that made me fall in love with her books initially; lots of
the normal action, suspense and romance, plus there's also a
lovable K9 partner that you wish you could call your own.
There are a few things that I wish were delved into a bit
more in RUN TO GROUND, namely the reason for Jules
kidnapping her siblings. There were hints here and there of
what the children went through but I think if it had been
expanded on a bit more thoroughly, it would have had a
greater impact on the story. There are also a few threads
that don't seem to have been tied up, but I'm hoping that
it's something that will be addressed in future books. All
in all though, RUN TO GROUND is a great start to what I am
sure is going to be another fantastic, must read series from
Ruggle. I can't wait to see where she takes us next.
He lost his mentor.
He lost his K9 partner.
He almost lost his will to live.
But when a ruthless killer targets a woman on the run, Theo
and his new K9 companion will do whatever it takes to
survive—and save the woman neither can live without.
Grieving the death of his partner, Theo Bosco has no room in
his life for distractions. Though his instincts scream that
he should avoid Juliet 'Jules' Jackson, he can't seem to
stay away. It doesn't help that Theo's new K9 companion has
fallen head over paws with Jules's rambunctious family.
Or that when he's with her, Theo finally knows peace.
When Jules rescued her siblings, whisking them away to the
safety of the beautifully rugged Colorado Rockies, she never
expected to catch the eye—or the heart—of a cop. Yet as
Jules struggles to fight her growing attraction to the
brooding K9 officer, another threat lurks much closer to home...
