Publisher's Summary

Grieving the death of his partner, Theo Bosco has no room in his life for distractions. Though his instincts scream that he should avoid Juliet "Jules" Jackson, he can't seem to stay away. It doesn't help that Theo's new K9 companion has fallen head over paws with Jules's rambunctious family.

Or that when he's with her, Theo finally knows peace.

When Jules rescued her siblings, whisking them away to the safety of the beautifully rugged Colorado Rockies, she never expected to catch the eye - or the heart - of a cop. Yet as Jules struggles to fight her growing attraction to the brooding K9 officer, another threat lurks much closer to home...

And this time, there's no escape.

    Story
    "Narrator driving me nuts"
    Would you try another book from Katie Ruggle and/or Callie Beaulieu?

    Maybe


    Would you recommend Run to Ground to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, the story isn't good enough to over come the horrible narration


    What didn’t you like about Callie Beaulieu’s performance?

    I could get past her flat delivery if she didn't read the stuttering brother so poorly. She sounds like she's having a heart attack with every stutter. Just read it the way its written! She is so bad it made me angry every time that poor kid tried to speak. Not because of the stutter, but because he apparently tried to loudly inhale with every syllable he tried to speak.


    Could you see Run to Ground being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Argh. I'm still angry at the narrator.

    "Loved this story"

    I thought this was an interesting storyline. Something a little different.

    The narrator was good, except for the part of Sam...that was a bit annoying.

    Looking forward to the next book in this series.

    "Good Suspense, bad narration"

    The story was entertaining but the dog should have had a larger role. Interesting plot line but the narration grated on my nerves. The pace of the narration was way to fast. The narrator needs to slow down and only use the "excited, breathy" tones for the appropriate times not the bulk of the story. Especially annoying when the main characters are supposed to have a southern drawl.

    Story
    "Okay as is"

    I listened to the audio of this book.
    Julies escaped with her four brothers and sister.She'd tried the legal way to get custody of the children under the abusive care of her stepmother with no success. With recommendation and some help, she ran to the small town and settled them in place. The last person she wanted to have notice her was a cop. A surly cop asking questions. A hot cop. A cop with problems of his own. He'd lost his partner/mentor. Theo had been assigned his dead partner's K9, who wasn't doing any better with the loss than Theo.
    Despite the mismatch, Theo starts to thaw around Jules and his dog does as well around her family. Is there any way for all of them to come together? If they do, will the person/persons trying to kill her succeed and keep them apart permanently?
    The audio was good. It did take me a bit to get used to the narrator. While others seem to think the studdering was overdone, with the abuse Sam had gone through, I think it was okay.
    Looks like the next book is another one for my wish list!

    "Narration is unbearable. Returning before finished"

    So sorry to be so negative, but I have enjoyed this author so much and fully intended to listen to this series but I am only one chapter in and can't bear the narration. So disappointed. Katie, if you are considering a redo, then yes, it is worth it. Callie, your cadence feels very unnatural. It leaves me feeling like I have been jerked around. The studdering interpretation is shocking. quite often, the tone doesn't match what is written and that leaves me confused. With all of that going on, it is hard to enjoy the story.

    "Worse Narrator ... Good story as Usual"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Katie Ruggle books always leave the actual ending somewhat of a surprise. This book is a great thriller and keeps your attention towards finding out what happens next. The subtle love plot is always a bonus but never over the top and only adds a soft touch to the suspense portion of the plot.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    This author does a great job of bouncing back and forth in the beginning chapters to show the back story of how Jules got to CO and why.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The Narrator.... sounds like a choppy computer... makes me dizzy listening. Most of the sentences are blocked... and not fluid. It is hard to get into the rhythm of the story. The only good thing that this narrator does is stutter for Sam, hence the choppy parts.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    The book would be so very much better with Rachel Dulude presenting.

    Story
    "great book. "
    Would you consider the audio edition of Run to Ground to be better than the print version?

    I have only ever read the audio book so can't compare.


    What other book might you compare Run to Ground to, and why?

    I would compare it to most crime novels I have read, it had a bit of everything including romantic suspense and action.


    What does Callie Beaulieu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She was a really good reader and gave each character there own voice and personality.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jules and Theo finally decided to give things a go between them. Also the way Jules was with sam after he'd caught her and Theo.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic book and looking forward to the next one.

    "new author....good listen"

    Good story with lovely characters. No cliff hanger ending as such but the story carries over to the next book. Not sure that is out yet so have to wait. Worth trying though.

    Story
    "A really enjoyable read"
    What made the experience of listening to Run to Ground the most enjoyable?

    The whole of it. The story firstly being the most important part of course. The reader had an empathetic voice. I had just discovered another series by this author that I enjoyed, so I was keen to see if the standard transferred to the new series, it did. I am now eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Run to Ground?

    The interaction between Sam-I-Am and Ju Ju after he discovers her kissing Theo. The whole relationships with the siblings and the dog, there are so many I do not know how many to catalogue.


    What about Callie Beaulieu’s performance did you like?

    The reader has a pleasant voice which conveys the emotions of the characters well. The narrator's voice is so important as it can make or break an audio book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I rationed myself though as I had other things to do.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that the next book in this series will also be on Audible as I so enjoy listening to books this way.
