Susan May Warren is one of my favorite authors because the characters she creates become so real, as if they are truly alive and part of real life. Susan's Montana Rescue series is no exception as the characters come alive and stick with you long after you finish reading!
"Rescue Me," book 2, focuses on Sam and Willow whom were both introduced in book 1; however Jess and Pete play large roles as do Sierra, Ian, Ben, and Kacey along with Chet and others. Sam is respected in the community and he is responsible, reliable, really the ideal man and Sierra is the ideal counterpart to him, so then why is he drawn to Willow. Willow is her mother's daughter, carefree, impulsive and leads with her heart. Willow works odd jobs, but her heart is really into her position as a youth leader for the church; however the most recent trips she has taken them on have not ended as planned and the church decides to hire a young man Josh with a Bible degree. Willow, Josh, and Sam sent out with a group of 7 kids to go for a day hike; however as with Willow's recent pattern, things don't go as planned and they find themselves hanging on for their lives and PEAK Rescue out looking for them. Not only do they all need to be saved physically, but they all need rescuing from their pasts, their current struggles and trust God and their hearts.
This is a fast-paced read that is filled with adventure, wonderful characters and I cannot wait for book 3 to be out this summer to be back with this group again!
