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.

Read for Review (NetGalley)
This is book can be read as a stand alone but you will miss out on some of the character development and details which occurred in book 1.
I really like that the heroine in this book isn’t completely helpless (even though she gives that impression at the very beginning). Kaylee is a strong character, even when she doesn’t want to be. I loved Hugh, he and his partners (Theo and Otto) have hilarious interactions.
There was plenty of action in this story. I am really not sure Hugh can take any more damage, so I hope the next book goes a little easier on him! We also get plenty of catching up with Jules and the kids (book 1) without completely overwhelming the plot.
As with Katie’s previous series (Search & Rescue) there is a thread which carries through all of the books. Towards that end, there was no progress in this book. Can’t wait for the next!
