Kimberly reviews Run To Ground by Katie Ruggle

TITLE: Run To Ground
SERIES #: Rocky Mountain K9 Unit #1
CHARACTERS: Theo & Jules
AUTHOR: Katie Ruggle

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…

And this time, there’s no escape.

3.25 Hearts Ok so I had a bit of a hard time with this story. First, Theo is a bit hard and stays that way for more than half of the book. While I can see that he has potential I have no idea why Jules becomes interested in him. Jules is on the run with her siblings and is on edge every moment of her life now. Even Viggy, the dog, is going through a hard time. Everyone is just so low.

The story is interesting and keeps the reader’s interest to see what is going on. I do have to say I figured out the “who-dun-it” shortly before it was revealed but that was fine. It is not like I had it from page 5 or something.

There is a lot of repetitive internal dialogue. I got to the point where I skipped over a number of paragraphs about how Jules knew it was the right thing to take her siblings and shouldn’t be involved with a cop but the story is still good. I also got aggravated at the end of the book. There was no definite ending. We never find out EXACTLY why Jules took her siblings, yes we get a general idea, but it doesn’t finish up. It gives us a setup for the next book though.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
