Cara is studying to be a kindergarten teacher, but her day job is doing research for the bounty-hunting business she and her sisters run. When the family hits a financial crisis, Cara decides to help out by bringing in a few “skips” on her own. She realizes picking a murderer as her first takedown was not a wise decision when she comes face to face with Henry Kavenski after she breaks into his hotel room. After some time together, she begins to wonder if he is truly guilty of the grisly double murder he’s accused of committing, especially when he does everything he can to protect her. Danger follows them at every turn, and they will have to rely on each other to make it out alive. Ruggle (In Her Sight) turns what could have been a predictable story of a bounty hunter falling for a fugitive into an unpredictable, high-octane action adventure tale.
VERDICT This fast-paced romance is laced with humor and a bit of heat. Fans of Janet Evanovitch’s “Stephanie Plum” series will enjoy the interplay between Cara and Henry but will find more grit and less slapstick humor.
