First Look: Katie Ruggle’s On the Chase (September 5, 2017)

On the Chase by Katie Ruggle

Katie Ruggle has brought us some intriguing mysteries so far, but in her latest Rocky Mountain K-9 Unit novel, even the characters aren’t sure what is happening and who is truly in danger.

Grace Robinson (not her real name) is in hiding in the small town of Monroe, Colorado, because of a dinner party gone wrong.  No, she didn’t use the wrong fork.  Grace thought she had met a real life Disney prince until she got lost looking for the bathroom and stumbled upon a nightmare hiding in the beautiful mansion.  That one wrong turn has her abandoning everything, changing her name and running for her life from a powerful man who has people everywhere, including the local California police department.  

Right before they reached the end of the corridor, the cop steered her toward a door marked Stairs.  Just as she’d known she wouldn’t survive if she’d gone back into Martin’s mansion, Kaylee knew, deep in her gut, not to enter the stairway with L. Javanovic.

Leaving everything she worked so hard for is bad enough.  Now she is forced to share a run down house and one bathroom with five other people. And since she can’t use the several degrees she worked so hard to earn, she should be just happy she has a job even if it is cleaning up poop at the local kennel in this teeny, tiny town.  Right?   It has to be better than being dead.  At least that’s what she keeps telling herself.

6 Can’t-Miss Romantic Suspense Novels

I don’t know about you, but life at my house has been occurring at warp-speed. I feel like last week we were celebrating the holidays, and this week we’re sweltering in near-triple-digit heat. Plus, in the blink of an eye, my son just finished his freshman year in college. Didn’t we just enroll him in kindergarten? Thank God for a healthy TBR pile, a lot of road trips where books get the time they deserve … and great romantic suspense authors who keep you on the edge of your seats!

Walker’s at it again with a new installation of her Black Knights Inc. series about a US clandestine government firm that, well, is destined to save the day. Operative Dagan Zoelner is a badass field operative who does not support the Black Knights’ decision to send analyst Chelsea Duvall into the field to bring down the head of one of the “world’s most nefarious crime syndicates.” She’s smart, good at her job, and capable of anything. She also (unknowingly) holds his heart.

Dagan had spent the last handful of years keeping his heart encased in Kevlar. But Chelsea’s confession blew through the protective armor and pierced deep .

I loved the setup for this story, too. Ian Hawthorn and Riva Henneman were young when their paths crossed—but whereas Riva was a college student selling drugs on the side, Ian was an undercover police officer with an underlying anger at the world. He set her up as a confidential informant and battled with his attraction to her for years, forcing himself to keep his distance. When their paths cross again as adults, they’re both in very different places, and the power has shifted between the two. I love that both characters are flawed and so very human. This was a great story.

How could he understand what it was like to feel powerless, to face someone with an iron grip on your present, your future? When had he ever been truly powerless?

When you are a fugitive on the run, it is probably not the best decision to invite a cop into your life, let alone fall in love with him.  In Katie Ruggle’s new Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series, Juliet Young has escaped to the tiny town of Monroe, Colorado to hide with her siblings but after running afoul of the law, she can’t help but run right into the arms of Officer Theodore Bosco.

Juliet, now hiding under the name Julie (Jules) Jackson, tried to be a good, law abiding citizen.  She tried to go through the courts to get her siblings away from their abusive step-mother, but as her money ran low with no end in sight, her former employer pointed her towards her only real option – grab the children and run.

Now they are all on the run and hiding in a slightly, run down house on the edge of Monroe, a quiet mountain town in Colorado.  It seemed like a great choice.  It was a quiet, out of the way, small town, but as Jules comes to learn, small towns take notice of new arrivals and they like to ask questions.
