On His Watch by Katie Ruggle

On His Watch


27430562In the remote Rocky Mountains, lives depend on the Search & Rescue brotherhood. But in a place this far off the map, trust is hard to come by and secrets can be murder...

Ice rescue diver Derek Warner never meant to be a hero. But when two little girls go missing, he's the first in line to bring them home-even if that means scouring the wilderness with the woman he once loved and lost, Artemis Rey.

Artemis has never stopped wanting Derek. Now, racing to find the girls before it's too late, minutes turn to hours. Night falls. Old flames rekindle. And a danger grows in the darkest wilderness that may be more than even the Search and Rescue brotherhood can hope to face...

This novella was a great introduction to Katie Ruggle's Search And Rescue series. 

It begins with a show-and-tell type presentation to a crowd of school children and progresses quickly from there.  I just loved Derek's character.  He is hilarious and sweet and so in love with Artemis, his childhood sweetheart.  

Two things kept me from rating it higher.  One, I didn't believe that two characters who are actively searching for two little girls during a snowstorm would spend so much time thinking about sexing each other up (at least I hope not!).  And two, it was very short and I had hoped for more.
The sneak peek at the back of the book has me very interested in the next book in the series.  I am looking forward to reading more from Mrs. Ruggle.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for sending me a free copy for review.
