Editorial Reviews

Review

"This initial entry into the Rocky Mountain Search and Rescue series is off to a promising start. The teams of first responders include law enforcement, fire department and an ice rescue dive team. The women in their lives are no shrinking violets either, if the heroine featured here is any indication." - RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

"Romantic suspense fans will enjoy the unusual setting, and Ruggle's ice-rescue certification adds an element of authenticity to the rescue descriptions. " - Publishers Weekly

"I can't wait to tag along on the next rescue mission." - Paranormal Haven

About the Author

A graduate of the Police Academy, Katie received her ice-rescue certification and can attest that the reservoirs in the Colorado mountains really are that cold. A fan of anything that makes her feel like a bad-ass, she has trained in Krav Maga, boxing and gymnastics, has lived in an off-grid, solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains, rides horses, shoots guns, cross-country skis and travels to warm places to scuba dive.

I don't mean to nit pick, but don't let the cover fool you. This is written by the female's POV and there isn't even a gun used throughout this ENTIRE read. Ok, I've said my peace, just thought I'd throw that out there so I can continue...

If you've read the novella (On His Watch), then you're aware of how non-emotional Callum, the leader of the dive team, can be. Getting him to smile, laugh or even say more than a few words is almost a game to the other dive members. So the fact that Lou's dry sense of humor starts to penetrate Cal's shell is amazing. To say she's starts growing on him is an understatement.

Lou grew up doing everything her parents wanted her to do, including dating who they want. So years ago she decided to leave them behind and start a new life in Colorado. Everything was going great until she kicks a corpse under water while training, her tires are slashed, footprints are found around her house and she realizes she's totally being stalked. Yep, totally enough to drive someone cray cray. But she keeps her sense of humor the entire time, almost having to since Cal has decided to be her knight in shinning armor. Not that she complains about it.

Knowing what Lou goes through (see above paragraph), you can only imagine how suspense-filled this is. It's a good mix of "who done it" and romantic chemistry. I don't want to ruin anything, so this is where I'll leave it be. Beware though, there is a cliffhanger. I'll admit, I'm ready for the next one.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
My first problem appeared from the start: there’s no presentation of the characters, not even the main ones, to the point I wondered if I was missing a prologue. We understand quickly that Lou and Derek have been friends for some times, that she gets on the nerves of Callum, their boss in the rescue team, and that she came in this corner of the Rockies to run away from a difficult relation with her mother. But without any details. But the action begins directly with the discovery of a body and I thought the suspense would compensate. My mistake.

In fact for most of the novel I felt like nothing much happened. Yes someone is giving Lou a hard time, at first with slashed tires, then damages at her home. But the story concentrates on Lou who finds sexy all local men, even if she has a crush on Callum, and Lou who goes working at the tea shop, then Callum who takes advantage of her problems to worm his way in her life. We only have Lou’s and her stalker’s point of view, so what we know about the others is quite limited: for example the hero almost only does half smiles – and rarely – and he’s got OCD. He finally gives two or three info on himself but it’s tenuous, and he’s the one we know the most about.

There are two action scenes, the first seemed far-fetched to me, the second is much more interesting because it’s really unusual, but that can’t save a novel. And if the plot around Lou’s stalker is solved in the end, the plot with the body found in the beginning isn’t, probably because it will be the common theme for the series. And on the romance side it’s not better, I don’t really understand what Callum sees in Lou as he tells her once that she disturbs him, and Lou only seems to have raging hormones.

Hold Your Breath is the first book in the adult romance series, called Search and Rescue, by Katie Ruggle. Oooeee, did I love this book. So much love. Without a doubt, this is an author I want to be on the lookout for and a series I need to be continuing. I really loved everything about this book. I loved the characters (especially Callum), I loved the concept of a series centered around various responder units (Hold your Breath is about a search and rescue dive team, but there are also cops and firefights in the town that I think will get their own stories), I love the idea of a overarching plot line with a murderer throughout the books; and I really, really loved Callum. (did I already mention that?)

Hold your Breath is told in dual narrative between Callum and Lou. Lou is a new diver on the team and is relatively new to the area. Lou certainly has attached a fair bit of attention, and I have to believe that part of it is due to her winning personality and part of it is due to the remote location and nature of being in a small town in the middle of nowhere. If they were in a big city and every guy she encountered (young and old) tried to ask her out I would have probably rolled my eyes, but for some reason in this set of circumstances it was completely believable and felt genuine. Not to mention Lou only had eyes for Callum. (and I don’t blame her one bit!)

Speaking of Callum, let’s talk. He is currently in the lead for Book Briefs Book Boyfriend of 2016. Let’s just say I am a big fan. He is take charge- the strong quiet type for sure, but he is also caring and very kind. And just a tad possessive, which you all know if exactly what I look for in my book boyfriends.
