After an eventful deployment, Army search and rescue pilot Kacey Fairing decides to spend her summer on leave in her home town of Mercy Falls, Montana. Hoping to recover from the horrors of war and reconnect with her teenage daughter, Kacey soon finds she isn't the only one to have recently returned home.
Country singing star Ben King has also come to Mercy Falls to help his father recover from a helicopter accident. When he discovers that both he and Kacey-- his high school girlfriend and onetime finance-- will have to work together on his father's Peak Rescue team, he must finally face the real reasons he moved to Nashville so many years ago.
As Kacey and Ben begin to move beyond the disappointments and misunderstandings of the past, will they fine true love, or discover that their lives have diverged too far to come back together?
In Wild Montana Skies, Susan May Warren takes readers on a compelling and emotional adventure. Not usually a fan of contemporary fiction, the setting of Glacier National Park provided plenty of interesting detail to keep me going. Each character is well-developed, believable, and relatable. I especially enjoyed delving into the complicated decisions the cast had made, and the longterm effects that resulted from them. While the ending is satisfying (though somewhat predictable), Warren strings readers along a bit near the end by creating unrealistic obstacles. The secondary plot line-- which I assume plays out in the second book of the series-- is also entertaining, and left me ready for the next installment.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
