The newest Montana Rescue book gives readers the story they have been waiting for with Ian and Sierra.
Ian Shaw has been waiting a long time for a happy ending. After his niece, Esme, went missing, he put all his resources into finding her with no luck. Then a series of explosions and wildfires put him in hot water with the government for his work causing him to lose the fortune he has worked so hard for. And to top it all off, the woman he loves is now refusing to speak to him. Sierra Rose didn’t think the day would come when she had to give up on Ian Shaw, but his obsessive search to find his niece left no room for her. The solution to her problem comes when she finds Esme, who doesn’t want her uncle or anyone else for that matter, to know where she is. These problems get put on hold for Sierra when the PEAK rescue team is in need of funds and Sierra arranges a fundraiser using Ian’s yacht in the Caribbean. Towards the end of the excursion, the ship is irreparably damaged and the passengers end up overboard in the churning sea. Ian and Sierra have to tests the boundaries of the relationship they have left along with their own survival skills in order to come out alive and help the others in any way they can.
Book four in a series can be very difficult. Your audience needs something new and fresh to stay interested but also want to continue the story of the characters they have formed a bond with over the previous books. Susan May Warren has delivered her best installment yet with Troubled Waters. The story of Ian and Sierra has been developing slowly with each of the previous books in the Montana Rescue series and goes full force as they finally have their own story. Fans of Warren’s writing will not be disappointed. She has brought these characters to life more than any in the series so far and the tension was at a whole new level. With the PEAK rescue team, there is always tension with someone being in danger and the team having to work together to save them, but the danger here hit home with all the characters, and not just Ian and Sierra being in a tough spot. It is nice that these books come out quick enough together that readers aren’t left waiting too long to find out what is coming next. I recommend this book to readers that are wanting a great romantic suspense with heart and a story they will not be able to put down.
