Everything Ian Shaw loves seems to always manage to slip through his fingers. With his fortune frozen due to government fines, his beloved niece still missing, and the woman he loves keeping her distance, Ian feels ready to sell his ranch in Montana, and move home to Texas. Sierra Rose still loves Ian, but knows he won't have room for a real relationship until he has dealt with the ghosts of his past. When the PEAK chopper needs major repairs after a crash, Sierra decides to ask Ian for one last favor-- the use of his yacht for a 3-day fundraising excursion with a few of his billionaire friends. When a rogue wave capsizes the ship and Ian and Sierra find themselves stranded on an island in the Caribbean, will they finally be honest with one another, or will lingering secrets and un-forgiveness end their relationship once and for all.
Susan May Warren tells a page-turning, action-packed love story Troubled Waters. Picking up almost exactly where A Matter of Trust leaves off, this fourth addition to Warren's Montana Rescue series doesn't disappoint. Given the variety of plot lines and characters woven throughout the series, each successive book becomes less able to stand alone. In fact, before the next installment, I may have to re-read the entire series. That said, Warren's storytelling and character development skills continue to impress and engage the reader. Ian Shaw has long been one of my least favorite characters, and I truly enjoyed getting to see him experience a period of deep introspection and growth. Sierra too was compelling, and a worthy female protagonist. The scenery change to the Caribbean was interesting, but I did miss the lack of mountain adventure in Troubled Waters. Plenty of love stories and an overarching mystery remain to be told in future additions to the series, and I look forward to reading each of them!
