Five bounty-hunting sisters
Deep in the heart of the Rockies
Fighting to save each other

Bounty hunter Molly Pax fought hard for everything she has, turning the bail recovery business she shares with her sisters into an unqualified success. So when their sticky-fingered mother jumps bail and puts the childhood home up as collateral, Molly's horrified. To make matters worse, every two-bit criminal in the Rockies now sees her family's misfortune as their next big break.

She needs help, stat.

Enter rival bounty hunter John Carmondy: six feet of pure trouble, with a cocky grin to match. John's the most cheerfully, annoyingly gorgeous frenemy Molly's ever had the pleasure of defeating...and he may be her only hope of making it out of this mess alive.

Did Ms. Ruggle really write this?? It seemed more like a high school English project and not the author's usual syle and quality. Poor John came across as not quite bright and Molly was pushy and annoying. The most interesting person was the crooked mom. Unarmed bounty hunters, please. Did like the dog.

While Ruggle’s latest is more suspense than romance, I had fun reading it.  There’s a lot going on for Molly – the sister, their mother, trying to catch the next jump, and keeping one step ahead of John.  I’m not 100% sure why she struggles so much with letting John close, but it does lead to some fun moments … and a few head-shaking ones full of snark on Molly’s side.  Honestly, if I was John I’d probably have walked away a long time ago but the man has grit, heart, and dedication (all good attributes for a hero).  Her resistance does throw a bit of a damper on their relationship so if you were hoping for more of a love story it takes a bit to get there.  There’s a ton of action, danger, and suspense to keep you busy while you wait, though.  Half the siblings are busy trying to track down their mom and figure out what’s going on with her.  The rest are trying to catch a pretty dangerous character in order to keep their house out of the hands of a sleazy bail bondsman.  Ruggle has always had a way at delivering extremely satisfying suspense elements and she proves herself again here.  I can see why some may have been disappointed at the lack of romance (and Molly pushing John away again and again) but I found it fun enough that it didn’t matter so much to me :) (Start of a series with a cliffhanger of an ending, so be warned!) **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**

In Her Sights is a fun first in a new series by the fantastic Katie Ruggle. Molly has practically raised her sisters and kept them fed and clothed. Now their ne'er-do-well mother may cost them everything. With the help of sexy John Carmondy Molly and her sisters may just survive this latest fiasco but Molly’s heart may be the first casualty. This is a rip roaring terrific read and I look forward to the next installment.

4 1/2 STARS! Lots of excitement right off the bat! With the kick off of a new female bounty hunter series, Katie Ruggle snagged my attention quickly and kept me riveted to the action throughout. The characters are easy to like and the extended cast brings humor and potential to the forefront. There's a bit of a cliffhanger at the end, so I'm looking forward to the next book in the series to find out what's going to happen! Molly Pax and her four sisters have worked hard to make their bounty hunting business a success, but all it takes is one underhanded move by their criminal mother and it's all about to go under! It seems she has jumped bail after her biggest crime yet ... but not before using their house as collateral.  Rival bounty hunter John Carmondy just so happens to be sweet on Molly and he's willing to help without question when he learns their mother has gotten them into a mess that's bringing danger to their doorstep. It doesn't take Molly long to realize what a great guy she has at her fingertips ... but can a relationship between two rivals ever really work?

This is the first book in a new series by Katie Ruggle. Despite the terrible cover (the male cover model's grip of his gun is ridiculous. That is not how to hold a gun, if you actually want to hit your mark) I was drawn into this story from the first page. Engaging characters, an intriguing plot and a humorously written narrative made this a hard to put down book. Molly Pax has been raising her 4 younger sisters since she was a little girl herself, because their mother is totally irresponsible. (In real life, they would have gone into the Foster Care system.) Molly quickly learned how to take care of them all and how the court system works. So it isn't far fetched that she and her sisters started a bail recovery business. One of their biggest competitors is big John Carmondy, who is in love with her, but she is clueless. However, once Molly finally realizes that John is not after her skips, has even let her take some of his, their chemistry sizzles. The sisters had worked hard to pay off the mortgage to the their home and their business is well establish, when their mother ends up in jail again and when the girls refuse to post her bail, uses an unscrupulous bail bonder stealing the deed to the house to use as her collateral, an then skips town. The only way to save their home is to not only find their mother, but also bring in Sonny Z, a very dangerous criminal. But John is going to watch Molly's back and keep all the girls safe, if it kills him. Warning: the story ends with a cliff hanger. I hate that.

Her mother jumps bail, her childhood home has been put up for collateral and every two-bit criminal in the Rockies now sees her family’s misfortune as their next big break. Molly needs help, stat in this refreshingly different and wild ride of a thrilling romance. Molly and John are two strong, vivid characters that seem to rub each other the wrong way but really have some uber powerful chemistry that has sparks flying in every direction. Molly is a strong, take charge character that is quite clueless when it comes to recognizing why John is around every time she turns around which makes this growing relationship a delight to read. The dialogue throughout the story includes snark and sass which adds some chuckles to the entertainment. The story is fast paced and full of exhilarating action and thrilling suspense as Molly and John go after a dangerous skip that has bombs exploding and surprising twists taking everyone by surprise. Readers can’t help but enjoy the family dynamic between Molly and her sisters and the fact that they are female bounty hunters adds to the intrigue of this story while the relationship between Molly and John charms and delights readers while ensuring that they want to know every last detail of this wild ride.

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy. What a great new series - a family of women bounty hunters! I loved the romance between Molly and John - especially since Molly doesn't even get that John likes her!! She is just annoyed by John while he sticks around and keeps trying to get her attention. There is a lot of drama and action as they try to bring in a dangerous bail jumper as well as finding where the mother took off to, you can't put the book down! While the part with the romance is wrapped up at the end of the book, the rest is still pending until the next book. I was not expecting that and was surprised when I got to the end and the mother was still on the run and we don't know if Detective Mills is a dirty cop or not. Guess I will have to wait for the next book!!

In Her Sights by Katie Ruggle is the first book in her new series and was a wild ride from the beginning. Five sisters who are bounty hunters are some of the strongest heroines that Ms. Ruggle has written to date. Each one of the sisters contributes to the business by using their personal strengths. Ms. Ruggle used this book to set the stage and introduce each sister as well as John Carmody, a rival bounty hunter, who is extremely interested in the eldest sister, Molly. The plot is swiftly paced, the characters are well developed for a first book and each one of them are very likable. Molly and John have a slow burn relationship in this one that eventually culminates in the ultimate explosion. I was hooked from the first page and read this book in one afternoon. I've never been disappointed by Ms. Ruggle and can't wait for the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book from Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley. All of the above opinions are my own.

I just love reading the first book in a new series. The possibilities are endless. Will it crash and burn or put me to sleep? Or will it immediately grab me, making me whine with impatience waiting on the next installment? Thank goodness this book falls into the latter category! I loved the one book I've read so far by Katie Ruggle, and I was hoping I'd be as happy with this one. Her fun characters drew me right into this new series. Molly is the oldest of five sisters who run a bounty hunter service. They struggle with their mother, who is a pitiful, immature criminal who leeches off her children. Mommy dearest steals Molly's car and commits a felony by stealing a necklace worth a fortune, and takes off for parts unknown. If they don't find their mother before her court date, they will lose their beloved home. Molly is forced to take a bounty on a very dangerous man. John, a fellow bounty hunter who wants Molly to work with him - and sometimes snatches her bounties away - aligns with her to capture the bad man. I absolutely loved these two characters. They are both totally loveable goofballs! You can see a mile away that they have a great attraction to each other. Molly, however, is a little slow on the uptake. I enjoyed watching these two go from friendly rivals to friends to lovers. The closer they get to their dangerous prey, the closer they get to each other. The increasingly exciting story will have you hanging off the edge of your seat, but it's the engaging characters who will make you want to revisit this bounty hunting family. I received an ARC of this book courtesy of the publisher and NetGalley. I received no compensation for my review, and all thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

Review: IN HER SIGHTS (Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters) by Katie Ruggle Publication Date: March 26, 2019 Genre: Romantic Suspense Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Donna Rated 5 Stars This was a fun and riveting start to a new series. One of those “whatever can go wrong, will” kind. Molly was the sister who kept things organized and flowing, shouldering the burdens brought on by their bounty hunting job and their worthless mother. Enter John. He’s laid back and sexy, enough to put Molly on edge and questioning his motives. Their romance built so slowly that I thought it may be a suspense novel with romantic elements – but they finally found time in between crooks and bombs, to get together. Nicely done and while not overly explicit, it fit perfectly with the feel of the story. They made a matching couple, both strong and capable, yet able to lean on each other when needed. Thankfully John had the patience of a saint to put up with Molly and her quirky family. The author made the hunt for clues fun and the explosive danger interspersed nicely with the romance. The teaser at the end has me impatient for book two. *Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ~*~*~*~

This is a great action packed romantic suspense that kicks off an intriguing new series featuring female bounty hunters. Molly Pax and her sisters have been working hard to make a success of their bail recovery business. All that hard work is threatened when their criminal mother finds herself in trouble again. When the mother uses the family home as collateral for a bond then skips town Molly and her sisters risk losing everything unless they can track her down. Molly knows she can't handle this on her own so she grudgingly accepts the help of rival hunter John Carmondy. That's when things really get interesting! I love these two together. There is fun, sass, action and oh yeah a nice romance all weaved together making a very interesting story. I recommend this book to everyone.
