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?

Review: Distorted by Christy Barritt

With each book she writes, Christy Barritt continues to wow me. How does she manage to draw me into the thick of things, leave me in suspense, wanting answers from those first pages? Every. Single. Time. Distorted (available June 20, 2017) is no exception.

While attempting to gain strength and courage, Mallory still is afraid of the dark, fights nightmares of her time in captivity, and is uncomfortable with any physical contact.

Distorted Christy Barritt
When she receives threats and starts to see the man who held her against her will, Mallory’s manager calls in reinforcements in the person of Tennyson Walker—the former SEAL who rescued Mallory.

Review (and Giveaway): Fatal Mistake by Susan Sleeman

My Review

Filled with an intensity from the first sentence that never releases its grip on the reader, Fatal Mistake is a must-read for fans of romantic suspense.

Author Susan Sleeman weaves high octane action, anticipation, and palpable attraction throughout this book. And the longer word count (from her fantastic category suspense stories) allows her to delve more deeply into the motivations and emotions of her characters.

The detail in this book of weapons, investigative procedures, and military specialties is excellent, giving the readers the feeling of being in the middle of a police procedural show. Sleeman knows her stuff.

Fatal Mistake

I loved the strength of both Tara Parrish and former-SEAL-turned FBI explosives expert Cal Riggins. There isn’t a cowering, simpering heroine in this book. Nope, Tara can hold her own against the intense FBI Critical Incident Response team.

And what a team it is, each member willing to do whatever it takes to protect innocent lives. I can’t wait to read the others’ stories!!
