Review – On His Watch (Search and Rescue 0.5) by Katie Ruggle

In the remote Rocky Mountains, lives depend on the Search & Rescue brotherhood. But in a place this far off the map, trust is hard to come by and secrets can be murder...

Ice rescue diver Derek Warner never meant to be a hero. But when two little girls go missing, he's the first in line to bring them home-even if that means scouring the wilderness with the woman he once loved and lost, Artemis Rey.

Artemis has never stopped wanting Derek. Now, racing to find the girls before it's too late, minutes turn to hours. Night falls. Old flames rekindle. And a danger grows in the darkest wilderness that may be more than even the Search and Rescue brotherhood can hope to face...

Suspense doesn’t even begin to describe the tension you’ll experience in this short read. You get about 8 pages of humor and set-up before you’re thrust into a non-stop suspense that will have you flipping the pages so fast, you’ll feel like you’re actually a part of the search and rescue.

While Derek, an ice diver, is demonstrating his job to a group of elementary school kids, an accident happens that turns his demonstration in to real life action. Artie is one of the school teachers at the field trip. Yep, you guessed it. Derek and Artie have some history and it’s a little uncomfortable in the beginning. But it’s amazing what a traumatic incident will do that brings people back together.

Don’t get caught up in the romance side of this read though. Besides a little kissing, this is truly as story about search and rescue and all that comes along with it. It took me a moment to get a rhythm with this one, only because my brain needed to catch up to the fact that it’s written by multiple POVs. Besides Derek and Artie’s POV, you’ll get the “missing person’s” POV as well. Which only adds to the suspense, in my opinion.
