“While this was only a short novella, I was very impressed with this debut by the author.”
~ Under the Covers

When I heard about this newest Audible Original I was really excited to try it.  This manuscript was the winner of the #SoundsHot contest held by Audible in partnership with Cosmopolitan last year.

In SEARCH AND RESCUE, our heroine Wren is a rock climber who went into Search and Rescue after her older sister died in a climbing accident.  The hero Clay is everything she hates.  He’s a daredevil who has made a name for himself climbing without equipment.

Whenever I read a short story that has to come to some happy ending in such a short amount of time I struggle with that insta love.  I was expecting that, but honestly it didn’t bother me much because it took some time for something to happen.  I still really enjoyed this couple and found that the way this story developed I was hooked into it and wanted to keep reading to see what would happen.  Another fun thing about this story is the setting.  Part of this is set in Morocco and it was nice to see how this was incorporated into the story.

While this was only a short novella, I was very impressed with this debut by the author.  I not only enjoyed the writing style a lot, but also found her characterization and conflict to be really well done.  Not only for a new author but also because short stories can be hard.  SEARCH AND RESCUE was interesting and kept me wanting to see what next obstacle they would face.  I am interested to see what would come next from this author.  If you’re looking for something short to lift your mood and entertain you, definitely pick this one up.
