This is the second book in the Search & Rescue series. This time, we are following Ian (who we met in book one). He’s a firefighter. He’s also a member of the local motorcycle club. There are many that feel that he’s very dangerous because of his affiliation with the club. He grew up in the club. He considers them family, even if he doesn’t agree with everything.
Rory is a local gun store owner. She was raised a lot different than most. Her parents were essentially preppers. They lived in a bunker. They made their own clothes and grew most of their own food. Rory was home schooled and taught to be wary of people.
It doesn’t take long to figure out that Rory is more of people person than her parents would’ve liked. While she is still wary, she is very kind to everyone who comes to her shop. She is able to have conversations. She’s had a crush on Ian since she was twelve years old.
The romance in this book is very slow building. With someone like Rory who has never gone on a data before. She doesn’t really know how to have a relationship of any kind outside talking about guns in her shop. Ian is very patient with her and tells her often that she was the one who would set the pace.
The mystery behind the headless dead guy is still going on. There wasn’t much progress on this front. There is another mystery to be solved. Someone has been messing around outside of Rory’s shop. It escalates quite a bit before the end of the story. There is also a story around Ian and his membership in the Riders. And also Ian’s step-father who is in severe depression after the death of his wife. Poor Ian can’t mourn the lost of his mother because he’s trying so hard to help his step-father.
Lou and Callum are still around in this story. Lou really becomes Rory’s friend, which is something that Rory isn’t used to. There were several great secondary characters from the fire crew. I also love the small town feel as everyone is investigating Rory and Ian’s relationship. Overall, I enjoyed this story as much as the first one. I’m very interested in seeing what happens in the next book.

Again, I thought the narration of this story was really well done. I like how Rachel Dulude did all the voices in this series. I love how she brings out the snark in this series. If you haven’t tried her, I suggest checking her out.

A fan of the old adage “write what you know”, Katie Ruggle lived in an off-grid, solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains until her family lured her back to Minnesota. When she’s not writing, Katie rides horses, shoots guns (not while riding, although that would be awesome), cross-country skis (badly) and travels to warm places where she can scuba dive. 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.
