Wait for Me (Montana Rescue, #6)
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.

Susan May Warren has shared with readers a story that is engaging, suspenseful, romantic, and very exciting! We meet the cast of characters in the first novel titled, Wild Montana Skies. Each novel continues with the same characters though the plot line focuses mainly on one of the PEAK team members. To learn what PEAK stands for and how the group started, read book one. I guarantee that once you start with Wild Montana Skies you’ll be hooked on reading all the books in the series.Each book has a unique way of captivating the reader that makes it easy to keep reading. Once I started the series, I continued and though I hate to see the ending of the series and characters I know it is time. I cannot wait for others who haven’t yet read the series to do so, or for others to read the last book in the series as the mysteries in the novels conclude with dramatic fashion!In Wait for Me, the story mainly is about the relationship between Jess and Pete that has been on and off again throughout the other books in the series. The books are wonderful in describing how heroic smoke jumpers, EMT’s, police, etc. really are and how they are people who have similar desires and dreams. Jess and Pete’s story has a mystery element along with Shae and Ned that comes to a climactic conclusion before they all fade into the sunset.I have no idea how Susan is going to follow up after her amazing Montana series, but I thank the author for writing with a strong element of faith throughout the series. I loved these books and plan to read them again in the future and see what I probably missed when I read them the first time! Enjoy reading the series and perhaps gift the books to another reader for them to enjoy as well!Note: I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book.

    Wait for Me is the sixth and the final book in the Montana Rescue series. I think I liked this one best of all in the series. It has more suspense in it then the other books. This book got my attention from the get go and didn't let go until the end. This book focuses on on Pete and Jess who also goes by the name Selene and on Ned and Shae who formerly went by the name Esme Shaw. After an argument with Pete Jess accepts a ride with Ned and Shae but almost immediately their lives are in danger. W Wait for Me is the sixth and the final book in the Montana Rescue series.

After an argument with Pete Jess accepts a ride with Ned and Shae but almost immediately their lives are in danger. Who wants them dead? Jess thinks it could be someone from her past who wants revenge because of what her father did. Shae was a witness to her boyfriend's murder some five years earlier and she thinks this person has discovered her identity and is after her. I was kept in suspense until the end trying to guess who the bad guy was in all of this and it was not who I suspected. Just when you think it is over and everyone is safe and happy there are some twists. I highly recommend this book.I received this ARC book compliments of LibraryThing's Early Review program and the publisher Revell. This book will be published on November 6, 2018.

But when Jess's old life came back to haunt her she decided it was time to go home and try to fix what she felt she destroyed...her family and the broken heart of her fiancé Felipe.When Jess left, Pete felt the air leave his lungs and life permanently. He followed her NYC and tried to convince her to return to Montana and asked her to marry him. She said yes but not yet. She needed to try and help her family heal. While there he met Felipe'.Soon after he read in the paper that they were engaged. But Pete was not willing to give up on their love yet. He decided to follow Jess and Felipe' to Paris for the new year. When he arrived he tracked them down and was able to persuade Jess to spend some time with him and again he proposed. Again Jess said not yet. Once again Pete went back to Montana alone. But hopeful that she would come back to him. Time went by...no Jess. But there is always hope.When I began the story I thought I would be drawn to them equally but I realized by the end of the story that although both had gone through much growth in all ways my heart fell for Pete. He loved her so completely that he knew he had to reach that point of letting go and letting God take care of her in the hopes that God would give him the desire of his heart.

    Totally & utterly outrageous. This series (of which this is the 6th & final book) is sometimes quite frankly everything but reality. Every one of each major character goes through multiple near death, high intensity, level of stress out of this world experiences.

The outrageous is what turns the pages. The crazy unbelievable is what keeps us coming back for more. Book after book after book. Susan May Warren is a master at writing not only the suspense, and the you couldn't have guessed it if you tried twists - but the soul wrenching emotions you feel as you loose yourself in the middle of this SAR team. I have been hooked on this series from the beginning. I am reminded why I reserve the 5 star rating for reviews as my gold standard. When you read something that literally takes your breath away, your regular 'that was a pretty awesome book' rating is no longer good enough. 'Wait for Me' earns this hands down. I was lost in the Bob. I was churning over Pete's heartbreak. I was wishing Felipe would disappear back to France. I was wondering when the Sheriff was going to show up. I was inwardly begging Jess to finally do the right thing. Amongst it all, I was reminded of why God is the One that can teach us about true love. Charity. The anti-dote to fear. That goodness exists in this world and is expressed by many people, everyday. I will miss this gang. What crazy adventure does this author have ready for us next?!!! Thanks to Revell for the eARC. This is my honest review.

    'I might be less apt to blame myself if I actually believed that God was on my side, that I wasn't a screw-up that had it coming.'Susan May Warren finally gives her loyal readers Pete Brooks and Jess Taggert's story. And what a story it is! We have suffered with, trusted for and longed for this couple for several books now. Warren delivered magnificently with their own book, too. Pete Brooks has always felt like a screw-up, always jumping in, putting his life on the line, never stopping to think 'I might be less apt to blame myself if I actually believed that God was on my side, that I wasn't a screw-up that had it coming.'Susan May Warren finally gives her loyal readers Pete Brooks and Jess Taggert's story. And what a story it is! We have suffered with, trusted for and longed for this couple for several books now. Warren delivered magnificently with their own book, too. Pete Brooks has always felt like a screw-up, always jumping in, putting his life on the line, never stopping to think what might be the consequences of his actions. But he loves Jess Taggert. Loves her in a way he didn't even imagine could be possible. But Jess has hurt him so much. She has promised to be there for him several times and yet several times has left. Pete doesn't think he can handle anymore, doesn't believe any reason Jess gives him will be enough to soothe his pain. But he can't get this woman out of his heart. She has a permanent place there, no matter what she does.Jess Taggert has always just wanted to not cause pain to anyone. She doesn't want to be the cause of anymore problems. Ever. She can't bear to hurt anyone else again. Even if she destroys her own heart in the process. She just can't grasp the fact that she can't please everyone all the time. Even if she tries and gives it her all, somebody is going to get hurt. But she loves Pete. She loves him so much. This couple has had a place in my heart for several books now. When I first met them, I wanted them to have a happy ending. But oh, the pain they endure. Susan May Warren always manages to pack so much emotion in her books, it's absolutely incredible. We FEEL the pain these folks are going through, are right there in the danger they face, and believe me, there is plenty of danger here, for someone is stalking them in the desolate, wintry woods. And she also manages to include such a powerful spiritual thread in the midst of all this emotion. God is our rescuer, not someone else. We just have to trust Him and lean into Him and allow His sweet peace and healing to flood our hearts. This is the message here. We may think we know the best way, but God truly does know the best way. We see more of Shae Johnson here and Ned Marshall and we also meet a few folks that I feel, at least, I hope, Warren will give us more of in a future book or books. Because I think they have a story to tell. I never, ever miss a Susan May Warren book and they all sit proudly on my shelves. Definitely worth a re-read, all of them. Highly recommended. *My thanks to the publisher and author for a preview copy of this book. The opinions stated here are entirely my own.

This book does the same but has a little more suspense than some of the others.What I did not like so much about this book is that there seemed to be a lot of things repeated not just from other books but things in this book itself seemed to be repeated. I skipped several paragraphs at a time and do not feel like I missed out on anything.The book I received was not final copy so it's hard to comment on the editing, but I can tell you I that this version still needs some work, though not much at all.I am writing this review is my own personal opinion. I was given an advanced readers copy, free of charge with no expectations.I rate the book 4 stars out of 5.

Pete and Jess finally find their happy ending. Of course we knew they would. But the journey was great. This book started with a bang with Pete in a rescue that about cost him his life. From there the story just keeps getting better. At first I wasn't sure about Jess. She came off as kind of whinny. A lot was explained along the way that helped me understand her situation. Pete was just trying to get over his love for Jess when he hears she's engaged to her former fiancee. There's a lot of action to get Jess and Pete together to show them God's love. A great book and I highly recommend it. I can't wait for the next series. I wouldn't mind reading books about Ned's family.I received this book as a complimentary copy from the author for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.

    Hold on to your armchair, it's a bumpy ride! Susan May Warren designs a spectacular ending to the Montana Rescue series. Not only is the saga of Jess and Pete wrapped, but we learn more about Ned and Shae and previous characters. With one danger after another, the series concludes with a shocking and satisfying end. More importantly, our favorite characters find peace and begin healing.I received a complimentary copy of the book without obligation. This review is my opinion.

Though not without many scrapes and bruises and trials.WFM was full of action, excitement, and suspense. And not to mention drama, of course. How can there not be with Jess and Pete involved? ;)Their relationship has certainly seen their fair share of bumps along the road, and there is more that works to tear them apart. But they grow through it.I admit that I was just a little disappointed in the faith aspect of this one. It wasn’t central scene and seemed more like something that was worked in at the end. I don’t think that was the authors intention, but while it held meaning, the message at the end just didn’t hold as much of a punch as I was expecting. And there was a scene at the end that I wasn’t very comfortable with – it just felt off to me, and so what I think was meant to be touching, felt unsettling in my opinion.I appreciated the theme of God loving us because of Him and not due to ourselves, but I would’ve loved for it to have been reflected with a bit more clarity throughout the entirety of the book instead of just the end portion.Also, I’d say this was at least PG-13 when it comes to all the kissing and passion portrayed. More like adult-content without being fully sexual.I enjoyed th plotline, and it was definitely suspenseful and we waited to see how it would all unfold. Seeing more of Ned and Shae (aka Esme) was very nice too; I liked their sidestory a lot!“Wait for Me” was a compelling read that I enjoyed the majority of, but there were just some things that I wasn’t quite a fan of and would recommend it for ages 17+, not really younger.

Wait For Me is the sixth and final book in a series that has given readers so many tense life-and-death situations, challenges, and stories of resilience, survival, faith, second chances and, of course, love. Bringing the series full circle, Wait For Me finally gives readers the long-awaited story of Pete and Jess - characters whose complicated relationship has been spread throughout the series - as well as a conclusion to the mystery surrounding the disappearance and recent return of Esme Shaw. It is thrilling, romantic, deeply layered and everything I have come to expect from Warren.Pete Brooks promised Jess Tagg, aka Selene Taggert, that he would wait for her. But after a year of silence, broken promises to return and news that she is engaged to someone else, Pete knows that it might be time to move on. When Jess makes a surprise return to Montana neither she nor Pete know how to deal with their complicated emotions and tangled story. But when Jess, Esme Shaw and Esme’s date Nec Marshall are run off the road and kidnapped, Pete will stop at nothing to rescue Jess- no matter what the future holds for them.Pete and Jess’s story has been one I have been eagerly awaiting. Their story, ups and downs, possibilities and near-misses, has been scattered throughout the events of the first five books in the Montana Rescue series. Pete has lived with much regret, first from the death of his father, then a broken relationship with his brother and countless poor decisions, and more recently lives he couldn’t save, but losing Jess haunts him the most. Torn between wanting to fight for her and protecting his heart, it’s hard not to fall a little for Pete and his broken heart and protective drive. Jess, on the other hand, is a runner. She ran from New York and her father’s crimes and her family’s reaction, she ran from Pete and the pull she felt between her two worlds. Wait For Me gives Pete and Jess a chance to finally bring everything out into the open, clear up misunderstandings and finally, truly fight for what they both want.Wait For Me is also Esme’s story. After her disappearance five years ago and staying silent about the crimes she witnessed, Esme has only recently returned to Montana with the intent to bring justice to those who deserve it. But when she, Jess and Ned are kidnapped and find themselves lost in the Montana wilderness, knows she might finally be paying for what she saw. Together, she, Jess and Ned must fight for survival - both from the elements and from the person hunting them. Incredibly strong characters with amazing strength and resilience has always been the thing I have loved most about the Montana Rescue series. And while Jess longs for rescue throughout the story, she never once gives up or stays down. Neither will Pete and the PEAK team give up. Bringing the series to a close, Wait For Me has all the romantic tension, tests of survival, and strong camaraderie of all of the books in the Montana Rescue series. I suggest reading the other books in the series before starting Wait For Me, and I can highly recommend each and every one of them. While it is sad to see this series concluded, I have highly enjoyed journeying with these characters. The publishers provided an advanced readers copy of this book for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.Find more reviews, reading age guides, content advisory, and recommendations on my blog Madison's Library

(pg 150) We finally get the conclusion of the Montana Rescue series with Jess & Pete's story! As bittersweet as that is, I feel it was the perfect ending to such an amazing series!! This one had plenty of action and heart-in-your-throat moments, tempered with a romance that's been brewing for a long time. Both Pete and Jess struggle to overcome circumstances that have kept them apart for more than a year, things well beyond their control and plenty of misunderstandings to keep their feelings at bay. That is until Jess, Esme, and Ned are run off the road, fight to survive, and are held hostage in a remote cabin in the Montana wilderness where they are forced to meet their problems head-on...IF they survive! I've longed for a happily-ever-after for all the characters Warren has introduced to us to from the beginning. I just didn't know what I was in for and what a ride it has been! Not only are there great characters, but more importantly there are deep spiritual truths that God has whispered in my own heart. It's like finding precious gems the author has hidden for the reader to discover. For example these lines stood out to me: That's what love does right? Shows up and sticks around, even for the hard stuff. Keeps it's promises. (pg 322) She too knew real love. The kind of love that forgave and showed up and chased and forgave again and kept showing up, loving her when she didn't have the courage to love back. Love pursued. Love forgave. Love believed. Love sacrificed. (pg 287) That's not only true love between a man and a woman, but the love God has for us. He'll pursue us, love us and has already sacrificed Himself to show us how far He will go to win our hearts! I loved seeing how each person in these books has grown in their own walk with God through the hard stuff & the easy stuff too. It changed them and it changed me too! *I received a complimentary copy from Revell on the authors behalf and was under no obligation to leave a positive review. All opinions are my own. *

    Have you ever found yourself lost, struggling, physically or mentally? So many characters in this story have these feelings. They don’t know what the day will hold or if they can handle it. They also don’t feel worthy of love from others, and constantly feel the need to measure up to a level of excellence which many don’t even achieve. The what-ifs are always speaking loud in their heads, and they have a strong desire to please others, even at the cost of sacrifice to their lives.

This book like so many other books of Susan May Warren is packed full of action and suspense. It doesn’t stop! It was like a roller-coaster, you think, “Oh I can breathe now,” but then BAM there’s more! There are so many twists and turns it just keeps up until the very end. Pete and Jess are the main characters, yet in this story, we find some many more. I loved how we are introduced to some new characters and got to see what’s happening with the old friends. I enjoyed this because they have all become like family to me. I’ve read this whole series and it always amazes me how we can see Susan May Warren’s heart in her writing. She has the heart to share God’s love with all who read her books, and this story continues with to show her desire. In her author notes she shares the true feeling behind this story and at the end, she says, “God is our rescuer. He won’t give up on us until he’s found us and brought us home.”This is actually how Pete feels regarding all he does in life, but mostly these are his feelings for Jess. Whatever Ms. Warren writes I'll read because I know I'll be captivated and blessed in a way that is life-changing. I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review, all opinions are my own.

    Wait for Me is a strong conclusion to Susan May Warren’s Montana Rescue series. And it is a series that I don’t want to end. In this last book, reckless rescuer Pete gives all of himself to show Jess how deep is his love for her. It was wonderful seeing how much Pete has grown and matured since the first book in this series. Pete models a Christ-like love that doesn’t give up on us though we repeatedly turn away. What resonated most to me was Pete’s unwavering love and adoration of Jess through Wait for Me is a strong conclusion to Susan May Warren’s Montana Rescue series.

Her guilt drives her to try to become the daughter that they desire, even though she really knows in heart who she loves and where she needs to be.This book is fraught with one suspenseful event after another. No one writes suspense like Susan May Warren. In fact the entire series full of nail biting moments. In the other books, PEAK rescue team members, Ben, Sam, Gage, Ian, and Ty chase tornadoes, are lost at sea, survive flash floods, snowboard rescue through the mountains, are kidnapped or being chased by bears or unknown attackers. This group grabs your heart and won’t let go. I highly recommend the entire series.Susan always writes suspenseful Christian heart lessons through the lens of grace. I will miss her people. I hope to see them again somewhere in her coming books.I received an ARC from the publisher for an honest review, the opinions are entirely my own.

    Wait For Me is the sixth and final book to the Montana Rescue Series. If you are a follower of Susan's books, you know that this series started out with Wild Montana Skies. In the first book we are introduced to the search and rescue, PEAK team members. Throughout the following books, one team member is featured in the story with the rest being a supporting cast.

Susan has written a wonderful tribute to the EMT's, Firemen, Smoke Jumpers, Police, and Search and Rescue Teams. She has done a great job, even though it is a fictional story, of giving us just a glimpse of what they face every time they go out. They are our true heroes.Her books are full of drama, suspense, romance and a thread of faith and hope woven within each story.If you are a Susan May Warren reader, you must get this book.I was given a copy of this book by Revell Publishers through LibraryThing Early Reviewers.The opinions expressed in this review are my own.

    Wait For Me has been a book we have all been waiting for since we first met Jess and Pete.  Will they get their happily ever after or will they both be too stubborn to see what is right in front of them?  Only time and reading this book will answer those questions.  Of course this book takes you on a thrill ride that won't turn you loose until the very end.  When you hit the last page you're sitting there like wait, it's over?  Does it have to be?  This is one awesome ride.  From rushing flood w Wait For Me has been a book we have all been waiting for since we first met Jess and Pete.  Will they get their happily ever after or will they both be too stubborn to see what is right in front of them?  Only time and reading this book will answer those questions.  Of course this book takes you on a thrill ride that won't turn you loose until the very end.  When you hit the last page you're sitting there like wait, it's over?  Does it have to be?  This is one awesome ride.  From rushing flood waters to racing through the back woods of Montana this is one thrill ride you better hold onto your hat for.  Pete and Jess are forced to realize they need friends and also they need to rely fully on God to get through this adventure that could very well be their last.  Susan May Warren hooked you from the very first line and refused to let you go.  I highly recommend this book along with the others to see how their family grows over time.

They definitely must be read in order. This was the first time that I felt the author made a concerted effort to explain the characters and how they related to each other and I was deeply appreciative of that as, in the past, I felt very lost while reading the books. In this story, which concludes the six-book series, there was a lot more explanation of past events and character relationships. Yay! I felt that this book, just like all the others, was very well-written, with a mature voice and lots of imagery. I had no difficulty picturing the action in my mind. There was a lot of gritty action and suspense and several side stories but I did not have any difficulty following the plot. It is a clean, suspenseful, Christian romance. This concludes the series and the reader is left satisfied with the ending and the way all of the characters have closure. There were several twists and turns throughout the story which kept me, as a reader, guessing. I really liked the story overall and I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend.

    “Wait for Me” is the sixth and final installment of the Montana Rescue series and readers have been craving to hear the final story of Pete and Jess. For fans of the series, we’ve waited with them and for them. But as we walk on the page with the characters, their journey is far from over.

For fans of the series, we’ve waited with them and for them. But as we walk on the page with the characters, their journey is far from over. If you’ve followed the series, you know this is a much-anticipated romance that has been building over the entire series. As with real life, some of us take longer to grow into who God designed us to be and accept who we are in His eyes.Medic Jess Tagg, AKA socialite Seline Jessica Taggert, lives with regret. She walks on the page engaged to Felipe St. Augustine after telling Pete in “Troubled Waters” that she’d come back to him. Is she engaged or isn’t she? Sometimes she doesn’t even seem to know and neither does her fiancé.Readers will also remember the scene teased in the Storm Front epilogue. I expected the story to start with that scene—I won’t give it away in case you haven’t read it, but the story starts a little before that, setting up the scene that’s pivotal to the plot.While Storm Front brought me to tears, Wait for Me kept me on the edge of my seat. It was filled with high action and heartache. How does one choose between the life laid out for them and the life they long to live? Who are they obligated to? How does someone who’s had disaster hunting them throughout their life ever feel redeemed? Like the hero? Like he can be there for the people he loves when they need him?I loved the mysterious twist near the black moment. No spoiler here, but I love that the story isn’t predictable.It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of this series and I’ll miss these characters. I hope they’ll make some cameo appearances in a future series.I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review. This review and the opinions expressed are my own.

    Wait for Me by Susan May Warren is the final novel in the Montana Rescue series. Each book of the romance adventure series focused on a couple facing seemingly insurmountable odds, both personal and situational, In book 6, Pete Brooks is forced to exam his history to understand its impact on himself and on his relationship with Jess Tagg, who he has not seen in over a year. While Pete is struggling with self-examination, Jess Tagg is struggling with her own issues.

While Pete is struggling with self-examination, Jess Tagg is struggling with her own issues. Coming from a very well to-do family, Jess also struggles with a controlling mother, who has been diagnosed with a debilitating disease, and a father who committed a crime that devastated many. It is Jess whose testimony sealed the guilty verdict for her father’s case.In the meantime, a story thread that has run through each of the six books is Esme Shaw, a young woman who had disappeared after witnessing a crime and the murder of her boyfriend while still a teen. In book five, Esme returns home tired of running scared, fully aware that the murdered may yet come after her. Having survived a tremendous crash off a mountain, Jess and Esme find themselves kidnapped and dragged into the dangerous wilderness of Montana. The PEAK Rescue Team is called out and determined to find the two women, none more than Pete Brooks. I highly recommend Wait for Me! I’ve been reading this author’s books for a number of years and she always provides great stories.I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and am under no obligation to provide a positive review.

    Oh, the feels!!! Usually, when a book is as anticipated as Pete & Jess’ story, it has a bit of a difficult time measuring up to all of that anticipation. Not so with Wait For Me! It was every bit as awesome as I was hoping it would be. Pete fell for Jess a while back and he thought the feeling was mutual. Then Jess left with her ex-fiance to try to right some old wrongs. But when communication stops, what is a guy supposed to think? When Jess is re-engaged to her ex-fiance, all Pete wants to Oh, the feels!!!

It was every bit as awesome as I was hoping it would be. Pete fell for Jess a while back and he thought the feeling was mutual. Then Jess left with her ex-fiance to try to right some old wrongs. But when communication stops, what is a guy supposed to think? When Jess is re-engaged to her ex-fiance, all Pete wants to do is heal. But wait, what if all is not as it seems? Jess too, just wants to get back with Pete, and when she comes back to tell him just that, he seems to not want her. Through Jess & Pete’s struggle we get the bonus of the wrap-up of Esme’s story, as well. This is a read that will not disappoint, especially if you have already been reading the series and waiting for Pete & Jess’ happy ending. This book is the quintessential blend of a perfect ending to a great series, and the sadness that comes from it being all done. Once again, Susan May Warren weaves it all together to make a spectacular book!I received this book from the author free of charge and all opinions expressed are my own.

    Every time I finish a book by Susan May Warren I am convinced that it is the best one she has ever written and somehow or another, she surpasses it with the next one.

Wait For Me took the suspense and action up more than one notch as far as I was concerned. If I was not sympathizing with Jess and Pete or feeling their pain, I was holding my breath as they entered one death defying situation after another.The Montana Rescue series could not have been wrapped up in a more satisfying way. All the loose ends from the previous books were tied up into a neat bow and everyone who belonged together ended up that way. I will definitely miss all the PEAK team and their friends and associates but I rest assured that the author is already at work on another series just as awesome as this one. Not to say that I will be especially patient as I wait for the next book. Hope it won’t bee too long!I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by the author.

Always “the charmer and the protector”, brave, heroic Pete carries a darkness inside that makes him a broken man we want to comfort. Throughout the series we’ve been watching how Pete keeps his emotions tucked away, living off his charm and humour (Loc. 1252), but finally he has his happy ending with Jess, the heroine, who makes him feel like he isn’t “a complete mess”.The kindness, the brokenness, the “heroic aura” all contribute to create a great, complex hero.The beautiful and dangerous setting of Glacier National Park is the perfect backdrop for the story about this tormented hero, who has “always lived a little on the edge between crazy and brave.” (Loc. 4220).I just wish Shae and Ned will have their own story and this isn’t the end of the seriesI'm grateful to the publisher, Revell, and NetGalley for providing a free copy

    Wait for Me is part of the Montana Rescue Series.This is only the second book that I have read of the series. Susan refers back to other books with enough of a reminder that the reader isn't lost in who did what. Yet without reading the other book, I would wonder why is this important? Maybe as background, and review?This book did a better job at keeping to the key characters and using the others as secondary characters, although there were many to keep straight.The twists and changes in the plo Wait for Me is part of the Montana Rescue Series.This is only the second book that I have read of the series.

Although the faith thread seemed hinted at throughout, it wasn't a Christian faith, but just a "belief in doing better" and "giving it to God." I appreciate the clean read, but of the Christian faith, it is not. That was disappointing.Also for a "Christian" book, more should drive the couples actions than the next time they touch. The repetition of this almost made me put the book away.I received a free copy of the book from the publisher.

It's become one of my favorite series and I'm gonna miss these characters who've come to feel like friends to me. But, wow, what a way to end! This is finally Jess and Pete's story.

    I really enjoyed Pete and Jess story. It was a great way to wrap the series up. What I do wish happened was that she told Ned and Shae's story separately. I totally understand why it was intertwined but I truly wish there was more of Shae and Ned. I think that Ned and Shae's story honestly was more interesting that Jess and Pete. Jess and Pete's relationship and chemistry has been deniable since they were first introduced in the series. They were definitely meant to be the entire time and you kn I really enjoyed Pete and Jess story. It was a great way to wrap the series up.

I was a little bit annoyed with Jess and how she wanted to make everyone happy but herself. I loved the element of suspense and surprise throughout the whole story, even down to the last few scenes with Blackburn. I did get a little lost in some of the flashbacks while the current story was still happening. But overall, a great story. I Received an ARC copy from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

The kind of love that forgave and showed up and chased and forgave again and kept showing up, loving her when she didn't have the courage to love back. Love pursued. Love forgave. Love believed. Love sacrificed."This author comment is another quote I love, "The best thing we can do is live in truth, love others well, and trust in a God who loves us enough to fix our messes."This finale has all the action, suspense, romantic tension and faith elements fans and readers have come to associate with a Susan May Warren book. As with the Christiansen Family and the Montana Fire series, I am sad to see the Montana Rescue series end, but I'm excited to see where the next Susie May adventure will lead us! I appreciate Revell for making a copy of Wait for Me available for review.
