Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren
Back Cover: 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?
Review: What a great way to spend the morning. Cuddled up on the couch with a nice warm breakfast and this sweet romance was just what I needed today. Wild Montana Skies started out quite cliché and very "Hollywood chickflick-ish" and I was afraid there wasn't going to be much to it other than cheesy fluff. Sounds harsh, I know. However, Wild Montana Skies really picked up after the first few chapters and I quite enjoyed reading this whole book.
Ben and Kacey's romance is tragic and yet so sweet. It was a pleasure watching them rediscover their feelings for each other and following them along as a dramatic flood, a search and rescue adventure, and some rather terrifying trips down memory lane accosted them. Without laying out a major spoiler alert, I will say that my favourite part was when Ben discovers Kacey's life-altering secret (you'll just have to read it to find out what that was).
I also enjoyed reading about Seira, Ian... and Sam? Sensing a bit of a love triangle here for a future book? Whatever Susan May Warren has up her sleeve, my interest is certainly piqued.
Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications and Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
