A brief summary from Susan May Warren:
Deputy Sam Brooks is deeply committed to keeping the town of Mercy Falls safe. So he takes his role as liaison between the Mercy Falls Sheriff’s department and PEAK Rescue very seriously. However, he is also committed in his personal life. Once his mind is set on something – nothing can sway him.
Despite the opinions of others, Sam is sure that Sierra Rose is the perfect girl for him. She is safe, practical and organized; a far cry from her hippie, impulsive, bleeding heart sister, Willow.
Willow feels torn between her love for Sam and her desire to see her sister have a happy ending. At least for the time being, Willow focuses her attention on getting the job as youth pastor of her small-town church.
But when an arsonist strikes, Willow and Sam are forced to fight for their lives in the forbidding wilderness of Glacier National Park. Stranded and injured with the winter weather closing in, Willow and Sam will have to work together to rescue a crew of terrified teenagers. As they fight to survive, they might just discover a new hope for love.
Is it possible to love a sequel more than the first book?
Before I read Rescue Me I would have given you an emphatic “No!”, resolutely sure that a sequel could never hold a higher rank in my heart than the original. But that was before. And this is now, after the book cover has closed, after my heart has stopped thundering in my chest, after I caught myself squirming in tense anticipation and squealing in delight over these pages.
The after me, well…I am quite sound in the idea that yes, loving a sequel more than the first book in a series is in fact extremely possible, plausible, and currently happening. 🙂
It helps that hero Deputy Sam Brooks is tall, dark, and reserved. A truly stalwart fellow if there ever was one. His only fault is that he loves the perfect girl, Sierra Rose, who happens to be a safer, more practical version of himself and perfectly complimentary in every way. Not at all like Sierra’s free-spirited younger sister, Willow Rose, who gets under Sam’s skin more often than naught for reasons he doesn’t want to dig into. Besides, he’s got more important things to do than worry about Willow – keeping the town safe and out of peril.
But peril sort of follows Willow around, unfortunately, like a lost puppy. Amidst figuring out what she wants to do in life, Willow gets the bright idea for her church’s youth group to go on a day hiking trip, and peril tags along for kicks and giggles. Which is basically when things go from bright and fun to dark and devastating. Stuck in a van hanging over a cliff kind of devastating. Its enough to make any person second-guess what they’re doing with their life!
With non-stop action, Susan May Warren takes her readers on a thrilling search-and-rescue adventure though the wilderness of Montana. Rescue Me is an unforgettable sequel to Wild Montana Skies in the Montana Rescue series. I am so excited to see what happens next in this series!! Is it July yet? Because I’m totally read to dig into A Matter of Trust, the 3rd novel and story of daredevil snowboarder, Gage Watson. Cue the swoons! 🙂 Add this entire series to your TBR list – you’re going to love them all!
I was graciously provided a free copy of this novel from Revell in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
