Katie Ruggle has drawn readers in with quirky characters, small town cops, lovable personalities, laughter and suspense! ~ Autry, Guilty Pleasures
After witnessing a horrifying crime, Kaylee is forced to flee to a small Colorado mountain town and take on a new identity. There she becomes Grace, a dog kennel worker trying to avoid the dangerously attractive K-9 Officer Hugh Murdoch.
When an accident leaves Hugh and his K-9 partner, Lexi, on desk duty, both are anxious for Hugh to heal. Until then, the highlight of his day is teasing the beautiful but mysterious new kennel employee. Their simmering attraction fuels a passionate kiss—interrupted by a sniper’s bullet. With targets on both of their backs, Grace and Hugh will do whatever it takes to stay alive…not realizing the most dangerous threat of all is hiding right in front of their noses.
Gracie is trying to out run things her eyes and memories will never let her forget. Her childhood created someone that would never have to nothing ever again, nice clothes, fancy shoes, houses so big people can get lost in them. No she’s on the run, fearing for her life, thrust back into nothingness. Learning to trust a small town cop to keep her safe, she never planned on him taking her heart in the process.
Hugh is still trying to recovery from a bullet wound when he starts hounding Gracie for her life story. Unable to believe her story, Hugh continues to pester until he’s started to fight to keep them both alive. Now trusted with life altering secret, he has to protect the woman he’s fallen in love with.
Gracie and Hugh had me laughing from the start, his ability to hone in on her lies, yet his willingness to accept them. Gracie started out as someone who could have easily been an unlikable character, who is now likable and relatable. Ms. Ruggle made this novel so easy to read, the plot was very well developed with a twist I never saw coming! Her secondary characters captured my heart as well; I adore Sam and all of his siblings. On The Chase is a great read that will hold the readers attention from page one through the last page!
