“Holy moly,” Chelsea breathed, no longer appearing like she was about to laugh. “I want one. I want a George. Are there more like him in the mountains? Because we can close the store, fly to Colorado, and go George-shopping, only for me this time.”- Gone Too Deep
Favorite Hero ever! GONE TOO DEEP is the third audio in the Search and Rescue romantic suspense series set in Colorado by Katie Ruggle. In GONE TOO DEEP Geroge Halloway, an expert survivalists agrees to guide Ellie Price into the Colorado Rockies. It will take three days to reach her family’s cabin where her mentally unstable father is hiding. Filled with suspense and a slow burning, adorkable romance, I dare you not to fall in love with George.
Ellie receives a phone call from her estranged father who is frantic and convinced someone is trying to kill him. Picking apart his conversation, she realizes he is at their family cabin n Colorado and leaves Chicago to find her Dad. I liked Ellie from the onset, she was smart, determined and funny. Any woman who sees whining as a weakness is welcome to be my friend. Chin up and all that. She arrives in Simpson, CO a small mountain town where all of our books are set and stops at the coffee shop. Dressed as a Chicagoan she immediately falls in the parking lot and is picked up, literally off her feet by George who carries her into the cafe and leaves. Hells yes, I am all in.
Ellie ends up befriending a few characters from previous books who aid her and ultimately have George taking her on the three-day hike up to the cabin. George doesn’t speak, in fact, he kind of grunts. I wasn’t sure how I would handle a man like George..but oh gods I want one. (sorry hubs) I absolutely loved their interaction and the slow building romance that develops. Elie is this outgoing, confident and sometimes awkward character who gets George. I melted, laughed until I saw tears and swooned over this sensitive, shy, intelligent man.
While the romance was enough to keep me listening and happy, we had the added bonus of a suspenseful mystery concerning Ellie’s Dad and a couple of dark villains. Ruggle picked up on the previous suspense thread left opened in FAN THE FLAMES and gave our hero and heroine quite the adventure. I loved how this seamlessly tied into the overall series and while the romance wrapped up and left me happy, the suspense thread had me yelling out loud and begging for the next audio. The twists and turns not to mention the need for more answers despite getting more tidbits have left me pushing the next audio to the front of my TBR pile.
GONE TOO DEEP is my favorite installment of the Search and Rescue series to date. I loved George!Gone Too Deep by Katie Ruggle - You'll want a George to call your own #audiobook Click To Tweet
