Review by Grace Olson
Back Cover from Revell’s website for Wild Montana Skies:
The last thing Search and Rescue helicopter pilot Kacey Fairing needs upon returning home to Mercy Falls, Montana, is to run into her mistakes. After a devastating crash during her recent military tour in Afghanistan, she is emotionally broken but ready to start putting her life back together. She just wants to reconnect with her teenage daughter and spend the summer working as the new lead pilot of PEAK Rescue in Glacier National Park.
But her mistakes aren’t so easily forgotten. Because Ben King is also back in town.
Country music star Ben King abandoned his past when he moved to Nashville thirteen years ago to start his career. He hoped to heal his broken heart, caused by losing the woman he loved. But when his father is injured, Ben is called home to help manage PEAK Rescue during his recovery. He doesn’t realize his father has ulterior motives until his old flame, Kacey, walks into his house and back into his heart.
Now, with Mercy Falls in a state of emergency due to flash floods, Kacey and Ben will have to work together to save lives. But when secrets are uncovered and old hurts rise to the surface, will they walk away again? Or can they find a different ending to their country love song?
I have been an avid fan of Susan May Warren for several years now, and it doesn’t look like that’ll change any time soon! I am so excited about her Montana Rescue series, and after reading the first book in the series, I have some reasons to tell you why you should be excited too!
- The spiritual themes.
In this book, Ben and Kacey have a lot to learn about forgiveness and trust and letting God take control of their lives. Susan writes in such a way that it was a lesson that touched my heart as well. She writes about God’s love and His desire to have us trust Him in a way that fills up the heart and points it towards Him.
- The unique characters.
I’m not sure how she does it, but in each book her characters are so different and varied that it never feels like you’ve read about them before. Ben King is a country music star. Kacey is a soldier who flies choppers. She is able to learn what that consists of for both characters and make it come alive on the page. As was touched on earlier, she also develops the characters in such a way that it’s hard to believe sometimes that they’re not real people. The romance is always well-crafted and tasteful, and the plot continues to thicken throughout the book.
- The small-town setting.
This seems to be her special niche, her forte. And she carries that through into these Montana Rescue books. All the characters live in the same town, they’re involved in each other’s lives. She writes about it in such a way that when you step into one of her novels, it feels like you’re coming home. This series, set in Montana, on the edge of Glacier National Park, promises to be full of suspense, danger, beauty, and fun.
So there you go. Three very good reasons why you too should read (and hopefully love!) Susan’s books, but specifically her latest, Wild Montana Skies.
