    Troubled Waters is the brilliant and adventure-filled fourth book in the Montana Rescue series. Just like its three predecessors and the other novellas in this wonderful series, Troubled Waters combines some seriously epic misadventures, brave men and women who run headlong into disasters to rescue others, and long-awaited romance.

    Troubled Waters is the brilliant and adventure-filled fourth book in the Montana Rescue series. Just like its three predecessors and the other novellas in this wonderful series, Troubled Waters combines some seriously epic misadventures, brave men and women who run headlong into disasters to rescue others, and long-awaited romance.

    When billionaire Ian Shaw started PEAK Rescue he had no idea just how much it would change his life. But now his fortune has been liquidated, his niece is still missing, and Sierra Rose has walked out of his life (albeit after he fired her). When the PEAK helicopter crashes and needs serious funding for repair, Ian and Sierra join together once more to host a fundraiser on Ian's yacht. Three days together might just be enough to save their friendship, if they can survive the sea that suddenly turns treacherous.

    Finally, finally, we fortunate readers have Ian and Sierra's story. This is the romance for which we (or at least I) have been waiting, ever since the very first prequel novella in the series gave us a glimpse into the possibility of Ian and Sierra. Since then, together and apart, they have faced heartbreak, misfortune, and collapsed houses, watched friends and family fall in love, and continued their search for answers.

    For Sierra, there really isn't any one with whom she would rather be stranded on a deserted island than Ian Shaw (except maybe Bear Grylls). Finally alone together as they face the elements and the unfolding tragedy, she and Ian have the chance to confess their true feelings. But there are still secrets to be revealed and they threaten everything. The romance is everything and more. Slow burning chemistry, a shared history, a foundation of friendship; watching Ian and Sierra finally confess their feelings was wonderful and totally worth the wait.

    As with the previous books in this series, there are multiple storylines unfolding at once. As Sierra and Ian's story has been continued in books one to three, so Troubled Waters progresses Jess and Pete's story. I really fell for Pete in this book. He lays his heart on the line, risks it all, and is man enough to give Jess exactly what she needs. Their story is sure to be continued in book five, Storm Front, which will feature Ty and Brette's story.

    I highly recommend that readers read the Montana Resuce series in chronological order, including the novellas. While each book has a complete plot line, the overall series storyline makes more sense when read in full and the individual stories of each character do begin and continue throughout each book. It would also deepen the whole experience to read each and every book in this amazing series. And why not? Because if you like suspense, adventure, strong characters, amazing romance, friendship, soul searching and faith, then the Montana Rescue series is perfect for you.

    Another hit in the "Montana Rescue" series by Susan May Warren! I have been loving these novels and was eager to read Troubled Waters. It was even more eventful than I anticipated and I was glued to the pages of the book (actually my Kindle screen, but it's really the same thing). ;)

    One thing I loved about Troubled Waters (and the whole series) was how the story wasn't just about one thing -- there were several different story lines. You had Ian and Sierra's story, a subplot about Jess and Pete,

    One thing I loved about Troubled Waters (and the whole series) was how the story wasn't just about one thing -- there were several different story lines. You had Ian and Sierra's story, a subplot about Jess and Pete, and then the whole drama regarding Esme. It made for an entertaining read and I never got bored.

    All in all, Troubled Waters was fantastic! I recommend it and look forward to reading Storm Front (book #5).

    Fourth book in, to probably my favourite series (Montana Rescue) from Susan May Warren, and it just keeps getting better & better. She's an author who can somehow reach the very essence of your heart and pull you right in to the pages.

    Fourth book in, to probably my favourite series (Montana Rescue) from Susan May Warren, and it just keeps getting better & better. She's an author who can somehow reach the very essence of your heart and pull you right in to the pages. The magic of her storytelling ability, is such that by now, the PEAK team is a real entity in your mind, working and living in the area surrounding Glacier NP.

    If you've read this series from the very beginning, you've been following this disastrous relationship between Ian & Sierra for a long time. In fact, it gets so dire at times I've actually thought - it's time, let's move on. It's been hard to feel much empathy with Ian. He's not your regular type of guy and a little hard to relate to. Sure he's had his fair amount of challenges & heartache - but he can be brutal when it comes to his interpersonal skills.

    Sierra, has had quite the upbringing. One in which I can't relate to either, yet something struck a chord with me as I read Susan's notes at the end. She mentions this concept of 'adopted child' or 'forgotten child' - in Sierra's case. This need to work so hard to find acceptance and validation from those in your circle. The desire to be cherished and never let go. In some way being a middle child, that felt like getting lost in the cracks at times, I wonder if that has not shaped my personality too. Highly likely.

    This story brings about a conclusion for Ian & Sierra, in a brilliantly told epic adventure of their own. For the first time we leave Montana behind, which I will admit, wasn't my idea of fun. Mostly because my love for Glacier is what drew me hook, line and sinker into this series to begin with. Yet, as we set sail into the Gulf of Mexico we are taken on an rollercoaster ride so unique, it truly is the story and plot we needed for Ian & Sierra.

    I couldn't put this down. If it wasn't Christmas and I wasn't super busy I'd have read this in a day. I have been so excited for the next in this series, that as soon as I was granted this eARC from Netgalley, all I wanted to do was drop everything and open up this book.

    What a ride, what a troubling, distressing and surprising conclusion for the characters who began it all. You will not be disappointed with this entire series, or 'Troubled Waters'.

    And, oh. Pete. And Jess. They are truly my favourite two and the plot thickens.... I don't always love a book, but when I do, I fall hard. Five full stars of love for this story.

    Thanks to Netgalley & Revell for the complimentary copy. This is my honest review.

    I have long been a fan of Susan May Warren and will read anything with her name on the cover. She has, in this 4th book in her Montana Rescue series, completely outdid herself. Knocked it out of the proverbial ballpark, so to speak. I finished with tears streaming down my face. One of the things I love so much about Warren's books is the powerful spiritual messages she includes.

    I have long been a fan of Susan May Warren and will read anything with her name on the cover. She has, in this 4th book in her Montana Rescue series, completely outdid herself. Knocked it out of the proverbial ballpark, so to speak. I finished with tears streaming down my face. One of the things I love so much about Warren's books is the powerful spiritual messages she includes. It's like a precious sermon, God speaking to your heart, helping you to grow in your own walk with Christ. She is amazing at that and it's truly a blessing.

    This book, Troubled Waters, is the long-awaited conclusion to Ian and Sierra's story. Fans have been rooting for them for a very long time, waiting for their story to finish. Ian fired Sierra from her job as his personal assistant after kissing her when he learned she'd lied to him about his missing niece. A year has passed and both Ian and Sierra just can't seem to get each other out of their minds. But it seems as if there is a giant wall between the two of them. Then the PEAK rescue is about to go under and Sierra decides to do a fundraiser. The three day excursion she plans aboard Ian's yacht with wealthy clients turns into a nightmare when a rogue wave washes the passengers overboard, leaving Ian and Sierra scrambling for survival. Will a huge secret keep them apart when they both want to be together forever?

    Readers get more of Pete and Jess's story here, too, and it's heartbreaking. I love how Warren always includes characters from her previous books in her stories. I've grown to love all these folks! And we know there are more stories to come also. She combines faith, danger and relentless romance in a powerful way.

    Warren has a way of developing characters that is totally unique to her, making them seem real enough to leap off the page right into her readers' hearts. Parts of this book broke my heart, made me weep as I watched characters struggle, both with their own lives, their heartbreaks and their walk with God. Each book has a powerful theme.

    We have grown accustomed to Warren's rescue stories, both with fire and snow; now she takes us to the high seas and what a ride it is! I was completely captivated by this tale. She knows how to tell a tale well indeed. We come away with a sense of knowing that everything we do is a choice, a choice to trust, to have faith, and to allow God to take the reins, even during the troubled waters of life. I was sad to close the cover on this book. But I know the joy of awaiting the next two books!

    The emotions going through this entire book are as stormy and frightening as the waves that turned Ian's yacht upside down. And it's disheartening to see there's no time to breathe because, when a respite seems to finally have come, the next wave of trouble is already there threatening.

    It can be very frustrating to see characters being led so easily by a current of emotions, and you just want to shout: JUST TALK ALREADY! OPEN UP!

    The emotions going through this entire book are as stormy and frightening as the waves that turned Ian's yacht upside down. And it's disheartening to see there's no time to breathe because, when a respite seems to finally have come, the next wave of trouble is already there threatening.

    It can be very frustrating to see characters being led so easily by a current of emotions, and you just want to shout: JUST TALK ALREADY! OPEN UP!

    Nevertheless, it was really inspiring when they were brought to the end of themselves, learning life is so much more about choosing other than trying to control - choosing to love, to forgive, to trust, because hurricanes and fires are just around the corner ready to happen, sometimes quite literally, therefore we shouldn't take for granted what we have, we shouldn't choose to let everything be so difficult, so graceless. We should learn that wealth and security are not found in what can be taken away, but in what's everlasting. And we can safely "count it a gift when God is my only option".

    "She just had to escape Ian Shaw before she started crying."

    It's always been this way between Sierra Rose and Ian Shaw; love and admiration gone the way of utter frustration. He comes and he goes, he employs her and then he fires her, he lights a fire in her heart and manages to completely douse it out with his over bearing, over protective, over controlling personality. Can it be any different this time? Apparently not.

    For once, self-made billionaire Ian Shaw is a man on the verge of implosio

    It's always been this way between Sierra Rose and Ian Shaw; love and admiration gone the way of utter frustration. He comes and he goes, he employs her and then he fires her, he lights a fire in her heart and manages to completely douse it out with his over bearing, over protective, over controlling personality. Can it be any different this time? Apparently not.

    For once, self-made billionaire Ian Shaw is a man on the verge of implosion. He has returned to his Montana ranch with the notion of selling it; his liquid assets having been frozen by the government after an unfortunate accident on one of his oil fields, and his long search for his missing niece at a complete standstill. And Sierra? She will hardly give him the time of day.

    When a PEAK rescue helicopter suffers extensive damage following a freak accident, Sierra manages to convince Ian to host a weekend yachting excursion on his "Montana Rose", with the intention of securing a few large donations from his wealthy acquaintances towards the necessary repairs. What happens on those troubled waters serves to prove that "God is our refuge and our portion", for "it's never a bad thing to have only God to turn to".

    Enjoy this much anticipated story, filled with romantic and climatic suspense of the heart and helm!

    So. Much. Angst. I loved that Sierra and Ian finally got their happy ending! It was in the prequel novella that their relationship was introduced and they have had ups and downs in the three books since. They have definitely been put through the wringer, and Troubled Waters is no exception. Their feelings are strong yet they haven't communicated with each other in a year or so, and building trust again is awkward and painful.

    So. Much. Angst. I loved that Sierra and Ian finally got their happy ending! It was in the prequel novella that their relationship was introduced and they have had ups and downs in the three books since. They have definitely been put through the wringer, and Troubled Waters is no exception. Their feelings are strong yet they haven't communicated with each other in a year or so, and building trust again is awkward and painful. I liked their experiences on the island since their guard and walls were finally down and they relied on each other for strength and support, including faith.

    The other relationship this book focused on was Jess and Pete's, another one that has spanned across the last couple books... and still doesn't get completely resolved, although they made some headway in communication. I think this book was bogged down a bit by the relationship drama because these two couples have so much time lapsing between their hot and cold phases. The first three books have a relationship introduced and resolved with a HEA (happily-ever-after) within their pages, so in comparison this one felt different. Also with the main emergency and rescue happening in tropical waters instead of the mountains gave it a different vibe. That's not necessarily a bad thing, since switching up the setting brings variety, but I do prefer the mountains and seeing the PEAK team in their element. Overall, a crazy adventure and plenty of romance! I love this series and can't wait for more!

    Oh, my, the drama! Honestly, if this had been the first book of the series, I might have not minded...but I read these books for the survival tales, the rescues—not the recurring emotional angst. Emotional angst gets me tired, so it really did damper my enjoyment of an otherwise well-written book.

    I think my main issue with this series is that years are passing and no one is maturing much. People get together and break up and date other people and long for the one true love and get back with the

    I think my main issue with this series is that years are passing and no one is maturing much. People get together and break up and date other people and long for the one true love and get back with the one true love and argue and break up....it's starting to feel like high school all over again. So while the book is interesting and good, I am just so ready for this team to learn how to talk to each other and communicate like grown-ups.

    The action starts at about the halfway point and I grew much more invested in the story. The rescue depended heavily on some improbable happenings, though, so it didn't ultimately end in raising my rating.

    The easy solution to this book: communication! Seriously, Ian and Sierra, you could have been together 3.5 books ago if you would have communicated!!! And, so, my readers, that was my main “problem” with the book. I know, I know. There must be some drama in order for there to be a story. But, let us be clear on one thing. I am not dissing Susan May Warren. I like her books; they are very enjoyable. This one however just had way too much of the “I love her so much but she doesn’t want me” and “I

    The easy solution to this book: communication! Seriously, Ian and Sierra, you could have been together 3.5 books ago if you would have communicated!!! And, so, my readers, that was my main “problem” with the book. I know, I know. There must be some drama in order for there to be a story. But, let us be clear on one thing. I am not dissing Susan May Warren. I like her books; they are very enjoyable. This one however just had way too much of the “I love her so much but she doesn’t want me” and “I love him so much but he doesn’t have room for me.” Come on, characters! If you would actually talk to each other, you could have been together—maybe even married—by now!

    Anyway, sorry about that little rant. I just had to let loose. I am glad that Ian and Sierra finally got their story, but I am just slightly disappointed in it. I really enjoyed reading about all the side characters. I just kind of got sick of the main ones. If you have read it, you may know what I am talking about.

    Unfortunately, I don’t really like the cover. It is weird. I mean, “Ian” is just staring at me creepily. See it? Yeah, not my type.

    Hmm, I guess I have to give this book a low rating. And I do not like doing that. However, I must give this book 2 stars. There were a few aspects that I enjoyed about this book, but unfortunately there were more of the parts that I didn’t like. I am not giving up on Susan though! I am still excited for her new books!
