Book Review: Troubled Waters

From the Back

Billionaire 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.

My Reflections:
Book four of Susan May Warren's Montana Rescue series is certainly a roller coaster of a read!
Having read each and every chronical of this series I feel heavily invested in its storyline and characters. Each novel has its own plot line, but the characters and events are entirely interwoven, so reading this book or any others including the novellas alone would be quite confusing to the reader. As such I don't recommend this as a stand-alone series.

Getting the opportunity to dive back into Ian Shaw and Sierra Rose's lives was refreshing and slightly irritating all at the same time. I was so eager to finally read the conclusion to this long-awaited on again off again romance.These two characters need to learn how to effectively communicate! Goodness at points in this novel I wanted to shout come on people, let's have a little talk! When they finally have that opportunity they still hold back risking much, granted the timing is pretty disastrous. 

I think as I get older, I have less patience for overdone angst and drama. This tale is filled with both which slightly got under my skin. I loved the overall storyline though, the action, the suspense and the faith base, it was a good wrap up to a long-awaited drama. Epic misadventures keep this story going strong. Overall not a bad way to end. If you are an adrenaline junkie, who loves a book with a breathtaking backdrop, this may just be the book for you!
