I started reading Susan May Warren with her Christianson series. I started with the first book and read the entire series in a month's time. I didn't think it was possible for her to write a series better than her Christiansen series but she did. I'm really enjoying the Montana Rescue series.

Reading the prequel I got introduced to many of the characters and got the background of how the rescue started. I would advise anyone to read the prequel if you can. This book focuses on Ben King and Kacey Fairing who were high school sweethearts but had not seen each other for 14 years. I loved seeing how their love story came together. They had such great chemistry but there were obstacles in the way. I won't go into what they were. You will just have to get the book and read for yourself.

I really enjoyed this book. It had all the elements I enjoy in a book such as romance, mystery and suspense. There was s scene toward the end of the book where a character's life was in danger. I stayed up well past my bedtime wanting to finish this book to find out what happened.

There is a mystery that started in the prequel. A young girl goes missing. Did she meet her death or did she run off with a boyfriend? I have a feeling that this question will not be answered until the last book but there were a couple of clues given out in this book as to what happened to her.

I look forward to future books featuring Ian, Sierra Rose, Willow, Sam and Jess. Wild Montana Skies is due to be released on October 18, 2016. Thanks to Netgalley and Revell for providing me a digital copy of this book to read and review.

Although Ben and Kacey were young when they were in a relationship and are older now and it has been a long time since they ended, I felt the deep connection they both shared with each other. This is due to the references of the past. Then when Kacey shared how hurt she was with Ben's leaving of

town to be a singer. Yet, you could tell that Ben also never forgot about Kacey with his music. The mystery aspect of this story was also good but I wished that the intensity level was stronger. I kind of felt like this story was more about Ben and Kacey and the rescues were kind of an after thought with the storyline rushed towards the last third of the story. Of course this story did have a happy ending. I did enjoy the location for this story. This was an quick and enjoyable read.

My rating is5+stars.
Before I share with you my thoughts on this book, know that a sequel will be released in the spring of 2017 titled Rescue Me.
Wild Montana Skies tells us a story of two adults who
Show More
as teenagers found themselves in a predicament that caused a radical change in their future plans. Both Ben King and Kacey Fairing were teenagers when they fell in love. Now, thirteen years have gone by when they are face to face with each other in an unplanned meeting. Ben’s Dad is recovering from a helicopter crash when Ben returns home to care for him while at the same time his singing career is apparently on a downward slope. His father hopes that Ben will return to the faith he had as a teenager as well as quit running away from what is tugging at his heart.
Kacey is a single mom and a soldier. Currently she is on leave when she accepts a temp job with PEAK Rescue to fly the helicopter. Kacey would just love to shut out the bad memories and sleep without troubles plaguing her. In addition, her daughter Audrey is just starting her teenage years, making their bonding somewhat like a rollercoaster ride!
Susan May Warren’s stories really hit the heart of this reader/reviewer. Her characters have flaws, deal with hard issues, make mistakes, and struggle with their faith and more. The background scenes are so well woven together at times I think I am there witnessing the action, adventure or tempest. As I read, I wondered if Kacey would be able to deal with her memories in action overseas or be able to help her daughter come to understand her history. I wondered what Ben was going to do with his faith and his future, because decisions at times have a cost.
Wild Montana Skies shows readers that God redeems us and restores us; He makes all things new. No, it isn’t easy at times and facing our mistakes can be painful, but He does make beauty from ashes. Here is one great story filled with danger, action, adventure and more that I hope many will enjoy for days to come.I cannot wait for book two coming out next spring! Join me in this adventure; you will love it!

I stories about those who risk their lives to help others intriguing and this start to a new series did not disappoint. Kacey Fairing is home for a short time in Mercy Falls while there she has to team up with Ben King who is running Peak Rescue for his father. They are forced to put aside their

I liked seeing how they were able to put aside what was troubling them and work together to do what they were trained to do. I look forward to seeing more in this series

to harbor any interest in Ben when she learns that he's also back in town. However, when Ben and Kacey are paired together to work PEAK Rescue, old secrets begin to emerge and the brokenness of their past is exposed. Neither Kacey nor Ben think they are interested in healing or reconciliation, but spending time together resurrects their original passion. As truths emerge and circumstances spiral into danger, they must turn to the One who created them for love. Read more in Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren.

Wild Montana Skies is the first full-length novel in Susan May Warren's Montana Rescue series. The prequel novella, If Ever I Would Leave You, concentrates on Ian, Sierra, and Esme. Although the prequel is not as well-written as Wild Montana Skies, I do recommend reading it first as it explains Ian and Sierra's relational history.

The first paragraph of Wild Montana Skies hooked my attention. The strong opening demonstrated admirable talent and creativity by Warren. Naturally, I wanted things to work out between Ben and Kasey and it was a pleasure to observe their spiritual and relational development. Unique phrasing, descriptive prose, complicated romance and breath-taking danger forged together into a captivating and memorable novel.

I recommend Wild Montana Skies to readers who love a well-written adventure novel with plenty of romance. Warren has officially catapulted herself into my top five favorite novelists and I'll be checking out some of her previous releases while I wait for the next novel in the series, Rescue Me, to be released next year .

Review: This book had me hooked from the beginning and I did not want to put it down. This is one of those stories I looked forward to reading when I was busy. I loved the characters and how they grew and matured along with the story. I rooted for them and grieved for them as well. I curled up

under a blanket Saturday morning and thought I would just read "for a bit." After what felt like 15 minutes I looked up and realized it had been 3 hours! This is a book you can just get lost in and forget the troubles of your own world.


Recommendation: I would recommend this book to anyone who loves romances or who just wants something light and happy to read.

3.5 stars. I was introduced to this series and this author when I won a later book in the series in a giveaway. I enjoyed it so much, that I decided I wanted to read earlier books in the series. I'm not sure if it is because I've already read books from later in the series, or if it is another
Show More
reason, but I did not enjoy this book as much as I've enjoyed others from the series. I don't know whether to attribute that to the fact that I already know some outcomes down the road in the story arc or to the story itself.

It was nice for me to learn some of the history between Kacey and Ben that was touched on in one of the other novels in the series. It was also nice to see Sierra when she worked for Ian and to figure out that Sierra and Willow are sisters (for some reason, I hadn't picked up on that yet in the other novels).

I would put this novel in the romance category moreso than some of the others in the series. The main theme seems to be the rekindling of the relationship between Kacey and Ben. Yes, there is some reference made to Kacey's time in the military and the PTSD-like symptoms she's having and there are a couple rescues by the PEAK team but they're not as prevalent as in some of the other novels in the series--which is odd since the series is titled "Montana Rescue".

It's hard for me to say whether reading this book would have intrigued me into reading more in the series--somehow, I don't think so. The PEAK team doesn't seem to have yet jelled in this book into the team I admire in other books in the series.

Lot of mixed feelings here. First off, Ian is a tyrant who used Sierra and fired her, and right after she saved his life, too. Ian- "I just want someone who will obey me" Ben's dad-[you can have my dog then] Poor Sierra.
About Neil, well, I like the name but that's about it.
Kacey and Ben-- what

Also, Esme, what have you done?! And Dante! And the unidentified body?

Started off great, but then quickly lost its adventure/romance vibe, and became so serious and devastating between the two leads - once again the trouble caused because they hadn't spoken in a dozen years.
