Adult Rating: 4

Bestselling author Susan May Warren presents another installment in her Montana Rescue series, a contemporary romance series with elements of suspense, adventure, and happily-ever-after endings–but only after major challenges are resolved.

In Troubled Waters, Ian Shaw and Sierra Rose have fought their attraction to one another. Their journey to a happy ending has been disrupted by misunderstandings, secrets, and singular focus on (some would say obsession with) a niece’s disappearance. As long as Ian’s niece Esme is missing, that is his primary focus, causing him to have no room for anyone else in his life. When Sierra solves the mystery of Esme’s disappearance but promises Esme to keep it a secret from Ian, it causes difficulties in their being together.

Sierra uses Ian’s yacht for a PEAK Rescue fundraising excursion for his friends. Things go amiss, causing the yacht to capsize in the Caribbean, and all its passengers to be scattered. Ian and Sierra are washed up on an empty shore. Will they find their way back home, and to rebuilding a relationship with one another?

Susan May Warren returns with another adrenalin-packed adventure/contemporary romance. Characters from earlier books return and their stories continue. Warren includes a faith element that is present but not preachy, romance that is evident but clean, flawed characters the reader will relate to, and thrilling adventure that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat.

Recommended for public libraries and church libraries. The next book in the series, Storm Front, was released in May 2018 (and will be reviewed in the next issue of CLJ).
