Review: Troubled Waters by Susan May Warren

Troubled WatersWow! This novel was packed with action, packed with drama, packed with decisions, packed with attraction, and packed with heart! The action sequences were so intense that I found myself having to set the book down and take a breather because the characters were being put through so much. But their intense struggles were all worth it in the end, and I was left eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

Troubled Waters ramped up the plot between Ian and Sierra, the main characters of this novel. They have both struggled with so much hurt and unresolved feelings toward each other in the previous books in the series. It was fulfilling to finally see how things came out for them as I turned the final pages of this book.

Jess and Pete’s relationship ramped up in this story, as well. Decisions were made and more questions raised. I am really looking forward to eventually seeing how things come out for them. I have a real soft spot for Pete in this series and want him to find his happily ever after.

Troubled Waters is book four in the Montana Rescue series. I suggest reading all of the books in this series, in order, including the prequel novella. Otherwise, I believe that the ongoing storylines that thread throughout all of these novels won’t be able to be adequately enjoyed or understood. This is definitely a favorite series of mine and I highly recommend it.

Troubled WatersBillionaire Ian Shaw can have everything he wants–except a happy ending. Or at least that’s what it feels like with his fortune recently liquidated, his niece, Esme, still missing, and the woman he loves refusing to speak to him. In fact, he doubts she would date him even if they were stranded on a deserted island.

Despite her love for Ian, Sierra Rose knows he has no room in his life for her as long as the mystery of his missing niece goes unsolved. The only problem is, Sierra has solved it, but a promise to Esme to keep her whereabouts secret has made it impossible to be around Ian.

When the PEAK chopper is damaged and Sierra lacks the funds to repair it, Ian offers a fundraising junket for large donors on his yacht in the Caribbean. But the three-day excursion turns into a nightmare when a rogue wave cripples the yacht and sends the passengers overboard. Shaken up and soaked to the bone, Ian finally has a chance to test his theory when he and Sierra do indeed find themselves washed up on a strange, empty shore.

It will take guts and gumption for the PEAK team to rescue the duo. But it will take a miracle to rescue Ian and Sierra’s relationship.
