Book- A Matter of Trust is the third in the Montana Rescue series by Susan May Warren, who I have come to know as a Christian fiction writer. I am not drawn to overt religious views. Warren, however, does an amazing job delving into the heart of a story, only touching on Christianity throughout. I highly adore this series and read each book in less than a week! Impressive- for someone who used to HATE to read as a kid.
The story centers around Gage, a world-class snowboarding champion and Ella, a lawyer turned senator. Gage always had a thing for the limelight. A devastating event occurs and he is blamed for the death of a young man. The lawsuit, on which Ella was the junior attorney for the opposing side at the time, has all but destroyed Gage who now works for the PEAK rescue team and local mountain lodge. Ella’s brother, a promising snowboarder, insists on following in his hero Gage’s footsteps, on an epic run. Both are reluctantly drawn together once again, in the hopes of overcoming the physical and emotional obstacles they once faced.
Warren again sets up an amazing backdrop. You will feel the icy wind blow down your neck and taste the salt on your lips. I highly recommend A Matter of Trust, for those looking to escape reality for a while.
A Matter of Trust is also available on Hoopla for digital download.
