Book Review: Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren

Wild Montana Skies (Montana Rescue, #1)

Book Description:

Bestselling Author's New Series Delivers Romance and Adventure as an SAR Team Searches for Others--and Finds Themselves
Search and rescue pilot Kacey Fairing is home on leave in Mercy Falls, Montana, twelve years after she joined the military to escape the mistakes of her past. With a job waiting for her as the new lead pilot of Peak Rescue in Glacier National Park, Kacey hopes to reconnect with the now-teenage daughter she sees only between deployments. What she doesn't realize is that someone else is also back in town.
Ben King has been building his country music career since the day Kacey shut him out of her life. Now all of that's on hold when his injured father calls him home to help run Peak Rescue until he's fully recovered. It doesn't take long, though, to discover his father's ulterior motives as Kacey Fairing walks into the house and back into his heart.
With Mercy Falls in a state of emergency due to flash floods, Kacey and Ben are forced to work together to save lives. But when floodwaters turn personal, can they put aside the past to save their future?


Book Review:

I just found out about this author a little while ago, and while I haven't read everything of hers, what I have read I've really enjoyed. I was excited to give her new series Montana Rescue a try. I'll be honest that the c
over of the first book Wild Montana Skies doesn't really do much for me. It probably wouldn't draw my attention enough to pick it up unless I noticed the author's name. After having read it I'm bugged that the guy on the cover doesn't match how I pictured Ben...at all. Which, granted, would be impossible to match what every reader has pictured, so I guess that's a moot point.

I finished this story pretty quickly, and I will definitely be looking to read the rest of the series. Warren set up the story very well so I'm excited to get to know some other characters. That being said, Kacey wasn't my favorite character ever. I kept expecting her to be...I don't know....stronger, more self-sufficient...more loving....something. She was just...broken most of the novel, and while I sometimes love reading about broken characters, Kacey just didn't really do it for me.

But like I said, the writing is solid, it ended up being a quick read, and I will keep reading more from this author.
