It was nice to see Derek and Artemis find each other again after years apart. Feelings of inadequacy broke them up when they were younger but now both Derek and Artemis are more confident in who they are.
The story was fast paced and certainly filled with action but overall it wasn’t too deep. Ultimately the thing I didn’t like the most was that the characters all felt like caricatures. Derek and Artemis were the most normal but not ideal. Callum was overly stern and stoic and Lou was goofy to the point that she came across as incompetent.
Also, I thought it was ridiculous that Callum would involve Lou, who is not on his team, and is only there for an interview, in the presentation. That’s not a very professional thing to do.
At this time, I will not be continuing with this series.

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…
Ice rescue diver Derek Warner never meant to be a hero. But when two little girls go missing, he’s the first in line to bring them home-even if that means scouring the wilderness with the woman he once loved and lost, Artemis Rey.
Artemis has never stopped wanting Derek. Now, racing to find the girls before it’s too late, minutes turn to hours. Night falls. Old flames rekindle. And a danger grows in the darkest wilderness that may be more than even the Search and Rescue brotherhood can hope to face.
