The second book in the Montana Rescue series cranks up the suspense and romance with returning characters and new ones to love.
Sam Brooks is the deputy with the Mercy Falls sheriff’s department and works with the PEAK Rescue team. He likes to keep things in order on the job, in private that is another story. His father died in a skiing accident and since then he has stuck around to take care of his mother while his brother Pete did whatever he wanted. He hopes he has found true love with Sierra Rose. Sierra is also one that likes order, her sister, Willow, is opposite of her in almost every way. Willow has been in love with Sam since the first time she saw him. She has never wanted to cause her sister harm in any way and has kept her feelings to herself, but it is becoming more difficult to keep it bottled up. Willow may be a free spirit, but she has worked hard to get the job of youth pastor at their small town church. While leading a hike in the mountains, Willow and Sam find themselves thrown together in a fight to survive and save the youth with them. As tension mounts, their feelings grow as well, but things get far worse before they get better.
As the second book in Susan May Warren’s Montana Rescue series, the whole gang at PEAK rescue is back and things are heating up. This book focuses on several groups, Sam, Willow, and Sierra along with Pete, Jess and Ty. These groups find themselves thrown together in frightening, and strenuous situations that cause emotions to go haywire. Warren did an excellent job weaving these relationships in a way that allowed each one be believable and fit with the characters. I particularly liked the way Sam worked out his feelings. The wilderness setting and the way the characters dealt with the wilds of nature kept the suspense at a great pace. There were situations that everyone can relate to and learn a lesson from. I can’t wait to see what Warren does with the next book in the series. There are still several characters that have much to be explored. The book was left open for the next in a way that makes me frustrated that I have to wait for it to come out. I love this series and the characters in it. I will be anxiously awaiting the next in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
