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…
It’s all come down to this…
Daisy Little has lived in agoraphobic terror for over eight years. Trapped within a prison of her own making, she watches time pass through her bedroom window. Daisy knows she’ll never be a part of the world…until the day she becomes the sole witness of a terrible crime that may finally tear the Search and Rescue brotherhood apart for good.

Chris did something he could never right, he hesitated, and he’s been secretly trying to make up for it ever since. That’s the kind of man he is. Loyal, caring, and being a sexy deputy to boot; he has a little bit of everything that makes a man great.
Daisy will not leave her house, she hasn’t for over eight years. She’s set up precautions to keep the world out, including electric locks and even metal shutters. The only problem with keeping the world out is that it also keeps her in. The only reality she gets is watching her neighbors from her bedroom window and the visits from Chris.
After seeing something crazy, Daisy’s world becomes a lot bigger, starting with Lou and her whiteboard. Then all the men and woman we’ve fallen in love with throughout the Search and Rescue series are welcomed into Daisy’s home and nothing will ever be the same for her, including conspiracy theories, training sessions, an occasional hint of terror.
“I don’t hate it when you touch me. What makes you think that?”
She shrugged. “Whenever I try to give you a hug, you jump away like you’re a cat and I’m an ocean wave.”
“No, I don’t.”
“Please.” The complete and total lie made her smirk at him. “The last time I tried to hug you, after you gave me Max, you couldn’t run away fast enough. Admit it – you’re a total hug-blocker.”
In Safe Hands is a creepy suspense that begins right where Gone Too Deep left off, but even with knowing who the killer is it doesn’t take away from the anticipation of what will happen next. Between the intermingling of characters I loved to the uncertainty of what would happen next I couldn’t put it down. And the sort of odd chemistry between Chris and Daisy was as odd as it was intriguing.
My Favorite Hilarious Moment: The first time everyone shows up to workout at Daisy’s house was hilariously entertaining. I’m pretty sure I laughed from beginning to end. Damn that crazy Lou!
