As a member of the Field County Sheriff's Department, Chris Jennings is used to having it rough. The Colorado Rockies aren't for the weak-of-spirit, but he's devoted his life to upholding the law-and to protecting the one woman he knows he can never have. He'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe. Daisy Little has lived in agoraphobic terror for over eight years. Trapped within a prison of her own making, she watches time pass through her bedroom window. Daisy knows she'll never be a part of the world . . . until the day she becomes the sole witness of a terrible crime that may finally tear the Search and Rescue brotherhood apart for good.
I loved the Search and Resue series by Katie Ruggle and quickly dove into IN SAFE HANDS, the final book. Once again, I listened to the narrations of Rachel Dulude as we meet Daisy Little an agoraphobic as Ruggle brings this exciting series and murder-mystery to a heart-pounding conclusion.
Trust me when I tell you that if you haven’t yet done so, you will want to read this series and do so in order. The murder-mystery case is cleverly woven throughout each story despite the different characters, romances, and circumstances. It was brilliant and each couple was memorable.
IN SAFE HANDS picks up right after GONE TO DEEP whose draw dropping reveal in the last paragraph had me immediately grabbing my earbuds. I needed answers.
I immediately identified with Daisy Little. While the outside world is a tad too people-ly for me and I could happily live within the confounds of my home, a horrific and tragic incident has left Daisy a complete agoraphobic. She lives in her father’s home with a series of fail-safes and relies on him bringing in fresh groceries and purchasing flea market finds that she restores and sells online. Chris Jennings, a member of the Field County Sheriff’s department knows what Daisy experienced that day and is her closest friend. He wants more but is content with protecting her.
Being trapped in your home with a father who travels can get lonely and as a result, Daisy people watches. As in her neighbor’s comings and goings. When a sleepless night has her witnessing a crime at a vacant home across the street things turn deadly.
IN SAFE HANDS delivered an addictive story line. We know who the killer is and it amped up the suspense as the killer was one step ahead of Daisy and Chris. I loved how Ruggle introduced Daisy to the characters from the previous book. It all worked seamlessly from discussing the murders, stalking and more. Chris was such an incredible sweetie. All of the men in this series have been strong, faithful and honorable. It was so refreshing. I loved the interaction between him and Daisy. This was a true “friends to lovers” romance that was sweet, awkward, funny and passionate.
The mystery and reasons for the murders were solid and Ruggle delivered a non-stop, hold your breath action packed ending!
If you haven’t started the series, I highly recommend the audios. Rachel Dulude was perfect for this series and captured the perspective of each character. Her pacing and tone added an additional layer of suspense. Her voices for the male characters were exceptional.In Safe Hands by Katie Ruggle delivered a suspenseful conclusion to the Search and Rescue… Click To Tweet
