Adult Rating: 4
Best-selling author Susan May Warren concludes her Montana Rescue series by portraying the turbulent relationship of Peter Brooks and Jess Tagg–and solving the mystery behind Esme Shaw’s disappearance.
In Wait for Me, Pete Brooks has been waiting almost a year for Jess Tagg to return to Montana–and to him. Has Pete finally learned to stop trying to be in control and let God be in control? Now he finally is ready to move on, and she returns to Montana, but is it too late now?
Meanwhile someone discovers Esme Shaw is witness to a long-forgotten crime. Jess and Esme are injured in an automobile accident in the isolated wilderness. Then they’re taken captive by that same person who wants to silence the only witness to his crime. Will they be rescued in time by Pete and the PEAK Rescue Team–or will a vengeful man’s actions cost Pete the life of a woman he still loves?
Warren takes her readers on an edge-of-your-seat-adventure as she tells Jess and Pete’s story. Characters from earlier books make an appearance, continuing their storylines. As always, the romance is clean, the faith is light but evident, with the tension building until its gripping conclusion. Wait for Me is filled with backstory which could be confusing because there is so much of it. However, it fills in the gaps if a reader hasn’t read the earlier books. Grace and forgiveness are interwoven through the storylines in this book. This is an action-filled romantic suspense the reader will not forget, and a fitting conclusion to this series.
Recommended for adult collections in public libraries.
