A Matter of Trust #bookreview
Do you remember when I shared about Wild Montana Skies and Rescue Me? Great books, I hope you've had a chance to read them by now. Today, I'm back with Book 3 in the Montana Rescue series, A Matter of Trust.
Susan May Warren creates a network of likable characters, and highlights a few of them in each book in her series, but you get to check back in with old favorites, too. Although A Matter of Trust is a Book 3, you can absolutely read it as a stand alone book and not feel "lost" without the backstory. However, you'll end up feeling so strongly about the characters, you'll go back and read the others, too, so you might as well start at the beginning!
One of the reasons I'm finding this series so fascinating is because it takes place in such a foreign-to-me setting. I'm a suburban housewife. The most dangerous thing I do is drive on the freeway. The members of PEAK Rescue put their lives on the line, both for each other and for complete strangers all the time.
A Matter of Trust is full of adrenaline and intrigue. Someone on the team is not who you think. The relationships are complex and evolving. You have Gage, who is a really amazing skier, but he's still grappling with mistakes in his past. Pete and Jess, who still haven't figured out if they're "just teammates" or not. And Brette the reporter who knows there must be a story here somewhere. Then there's Ella, who had a complicated run in with Gage a few years ago, and now she's just trying to keep her younger brother from self destructing, but the only one who can help her do that, is Gage, of course.
The tension and the drama are enticing. This is one of those books you just can't put down. You know, the sort of book that makes your chest ache as you read, hoping that things will work out?
I'm really looking forward to Troubled Waters, Book 4, which comes out in January. Looks like we'll finally find out the rest of Esme's story, and how things work out (or don't!) between Sierra and Ian from Book 1. If you plow through the first 3 between now and then, check out some of Susan May Warren's other books.
