About this 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.

Rescue Me is the second book in the Montana Rescue Series by Susan May Warren. In this book you’ll read about love, bears, and forgiveness.

I really, really wanted to like this book, but I had such a hard time with this one. I like the different story lines, but it gets to be a lot to keep track of. There is a mistake that is made with one of the characters and when I read it I was like, really??? It just seemed far fetched and detracted from the story.

Then there was the incident with the bear, which for me, was another disaster. While the concept was interesting and did add a layer of suspense and excitement to this story, the execution was not what I expected. For example, the character climbs a tree to get a way from a bear, which is one thing they tell you NOT to do.

While there was a lot I didn’t care for in this story and it detracted from what should have been a great book, there were elements I did like. I enjoyed the concept of a youth director and taking the kids on a trip. I found her character to be interesting in this regard.

The story of forgiveness was one that pulled on my heart. The concept of forgiveness is easy to relate with. I felt Susan May Warren take this common story theme to a little deeper level that made me feel empathy for the character. I enjoyed this aspect of the story.

Overall this was an okay read. Like I said, I really wanted to like this book. There were elements that were great and held my attention, but when mixed with the flaws in this book, it made it hard to get through and actually believe what I was reading. It made this just an okay book.

In defense of the author, who I know can write great books, I read an advanced reader copy of this book, hopefully the final copy is a cleaned up version.
