When Deputy Sam Brooks commits to something, nothing can sway him -- not just on the job but in his private life. He's the one who stuck around to take care of his mother after his father's accidental death. And he's the one -- perhaps the only one -- who believes Sierra Rose is the perfect girl for him. Safe, practical, and organized, she's nothing like her hippie, impulsive, bleeding-heart sister, Willow.
Willow, however, has been in love with Sam Brooks for as long as she can remember. But she wants her sister to have a happy ending. Besides, Willow has other things to focus on -- namely, nabbing the job of her dreams. Best thing for her to do is to purge Sam from her heart.
Neither can predict the events that will bring them together in a fight for their lives in the forbidding wilderness of Glacier National Park. Stranded, injured, and with the winter weather closing in, Sam and Willow will have to work together to save a crew of terrified teenagers. As they fight to survive, they might just discover a new hope for love.
Susan May Warren delivers another heart-stopping, angst-riddled romance that kept me both yearning and dreading reaching the last page. And now that I have, I am in a bit of a reader funk...but not for long because Book Three, A Matter of Trust, comes out in just one month! Anticipation is mounting! I love the members of the PEAK Rescue Team and I won't be satisfied until I have the scoop on each and every one of them.
Free-spirited Willow with her unorthodox upbringing and unrequited love drew me in right from the start. Her past is an emotional minefield that has her feeling 'less than'. She has yet to figure out that it's okay to be a work in progress...especially in God's Kingdom.
Deputy Sam Brooks is definitely hero material -- in a flawed kind of way. He's the guy you can always count on.The take action, fix-it kind of guy...but he's also the one who needs to be in control and there's a boulder size chip on his shoulder which complicates all his relationships -- especially with his kid brother, Pete. (Insert happy swoon here because the author gives us a delectable peek into Pete's love life...well, the potential for one which is sure to be fleshed out in a future book...pretty please Ms. Warren.)
I so appreciate the solid inspirational thread that winds its way throughout these characters lives...and consequently into mine. Both Willow and Sam are Christians but, like all of us, they are in need of divine rescuing. Harsh circumstances refine them as individuals and as a couple and there are so many wonderful faith discussions that ministered to me in a powerful way. Exactly what I love to find in a Christian Fiction novel.
A stupendous addition to the Montana Rescue series (which reads really well as a standalone, by the way. All the books do.)
