Wait For Me
Pete Brooks can’t believe he’s waited an entire year for Jess Tagg to return to Montana, only to have her break his heart by getting engaged to her ex-fiancé. Worse, a series of mistakes on the job have cost lives, and Pete isn’t sure he wants to continue to work in Search and Rescue. Maybe if he can just get over Jess, he can figure out how to move forward.
EMT Jess Tagg has returned to Montana to finally give her heart to Pete, but it seems he’s no longer interested. When a terrible fight between them sparks an impulsive decision, she finds herself crashed on the side of a highway along with Esme Shaw. And just when she thinks things couldn’t get any worse, she and Esme are taken captive and into the untamed Montana wilderness—with murderous intent.

Now Pete and the other PEAK Rescue Team members are in a race against time, the elements, and the actions of a vengeful man. Pete will have to use everything he’s learned to find Jess and Esme—and pray that his past mistakes don’t cost him the life of the woman he can’t stop loving.

Wait for Me is the sixth book in Susan May Warren’s Montana Rescue series. In it she has  created a really rich cast of characters, ones that clearly have their own interwoven back stories, but she fills in enough of said stories that the book works well as a stand-alone. (That said, she gave just enough detail along with showing her gift for building an exciting story to pique my interest and motivate me to go back to the beginning of the series.)

Let me start by saying that the synopsis above, while intriguing, struck me as a bit confusing, and in hindsight, it’s a very simple overview of the plot. In other words, this book is SO much better than its synopsis (which is not a bad thing! I hate it when a book doesn’t live up to its description.)

The characters are complicated and a bit flawed. Pete is determined, perhaps too much so, competitive and maybe a bit proud. Jess is a little too giving to others (to her own detriment) and finds herself caught in a lie to please her mother (and we know THAT never works out well.) And of course, there are crossed lines and miscommunications that will have you yelling at the characters (because you’ve been sucked in.)

What this book also has is a fast-paced, tension-filled plot, and a couple big plot twists that I did not see coming. There’s romance, a lot of hold-your-breath suspense and action, this book had a little of everything! As it’s Christian fiction, the romance is clean.

While Wait For Me was the final book in the series, I’ll definitely be going back to the beginning and reading through the first five books. I’m also looking forward to seeing what Susan May Warren has up her sleeve for her next book.
