Rescue Me by Susan May Warren

Released: Jan. 31, 2017
337 pages
Series: Montana Rescue # 2

About the Book:

When Deputy Sam Brooks commits to something, nothing can sway him--not just on the job as liaison between the Mercy Falls sheriff's department and PEAK Rescue, 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 as youth pastor for her small-town church. 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.

My Rating & Thoughts:   🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (4 stars)


This is book two of the Montana Rescue series.
At one point Willow tells Sam that “God’s light can overtake the darkness”, this explains exactly the theme immersed throughout this book. God is there for us asking to be let in and is at work in our lives even during the dark times even though we may not see him. Story picks up shortly after book one and focuses on brothers, Sam & Pete Brooks. From the previous book we know there is some baggage in their past that has strained their relationship but we didn’t know what it was. This one digs into that relationship as well as their romantic relationships. Majority of the story takes place with a group stuck on a mountain trying to get help after an accident. There are quite a few tense moments that had me holding my breath while waiting to find out what would happen. I became invested in the characters, and couldn’t put it down until I knew that they would be rescued and how it would happen. On the romantic relationship side, there was a few will they / won’t they moments for both main couples, but thankfully in the end Ms. Warren put the characters together that I wanted together. However there is still one relationship that I want fixed and I hope this happens in book three. The ongoing story about what happened to Ian’s niece, Esme, was mentioned very briefly in this one, but there was a piece revealed near the end that has me anxiously awaiting book 3 for answers. Book 3 releases July 4th.
(I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley; opinions expressed in this review are my honest opinion.)
