A Matter of Trust by Susan May Warren

 

The pure adrenaline and freedom of flying down a mountain coated with snow, the stomach-dropping jumps, and the beauty of Montana’s Glacier National Park are brought to life in Susan May Warren’s A Matter of Trust. But book number four in the Montana Rescue series is so much more than that.

A few years ago, Gage “Watts” Watson was on top of the world. A champion backcountry snowboarder, he had the adoring fans, the trophies, and the sponsorships. After a tragedy, he’s trying to discover his place in life while staying under the radar. Now, the person who helped end his career needs his help.

A Matter of Trust Susan May Warren

As Gage and Ella Blair search for her brother in a dangerous, life-threatening snowboard run, they must come to grips with their past mistakes. Gage is intent on not repeating the past tragedy again. Ella wants to apologize, to make things right with Gage.

It might take days on a mountain, a snowstorm, and some gentle reminders that God is God. That nothing they did, or do, changes his love for them. That He doesn’t forget about them or turn His back on them even when He feels far away.

This is a standalone book in the series. I hadn’t read the previous books but was not lost with the characters. Although, now I’m curious about some of their other stories so will have to go back and read the rest of the series.

Champion backcountry snowboarder Gage Watson has left the limelight behind after the death of one of his fans. After being sued for negligence and stripped of his sponsorships, he’s remade his life as a ski patrol in Montana’s rugged mountains, as well as serving on the PEAK Rescue team. But he can’t seem to find his footing–or forget the woman he loved, who betrayed him. 

Senator and former attorney Ella Blair spends much of her time in the limelight as the second-youngest senator in the country. But she has a secret–one that cost Gage his career. More than anything, she wants to atone for her betrayal of him in the courtroom and find a way to help him put his career back on track. 

When Ella’s brother goes missing on one of Glacier National Park’s most dangerous peaks, Gage and his team are called in for the rescue. But Gage isn’t so sure he wants to help the woman who destroyed his life. More, when she insists on joining the search, he’ll have to keep her safe while finding her reckless brother, a recipe for disaster when a snowstorm hits the mountain. 

But old sparks relight as they search for the missing snowboarder–and suddenly, they are faced with emotions neither can deny. But when Ella’s secret is revealed, can they learn to trust each other–even when disaster happens again?

The Writing Desk by Rachel Hauck (Review)

Wow. That’s what I have to say about Rachel Hauck’s newest book. The Writing Desk is so good.

With a dual timeline, one in the present and the other during the Gilded Age, each heroine approach to life is so different, they’re almost opposite of each other. Elizabeth “Birdie” Shehorn is determined. Despite her parents’ plans for her, she longs to go after her dreams. And Tenley Roth, ridiculous sometimes, hiding from life, doubting her worth and abilities, trying to carve a relationship with the mother who abandoned her, was my favorite of all.

Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh (Reveiw with a Giveaway)

This was one of those books that once I started, I could not put down. In fact, I started reading it one evening after work and finished in the wee hours of the next day.

In part because I could empathize in a way with Lane Kelley. While I’m not estranged from my family, I do live 2500 miles away and often feel out of the loop when I get together with them. And none of them betrayed me the way a member of Lane’s family did hers. There’s so much pain and hurt to Lane’s story, I couldn’t help but feel for her.
