Series: Montana Rescue
Senator and former attorney Ella Blair spends much of her time in the limelight as the second-youngest senator in the country. But she has a secret--one that cost Gage his career. More than anything, she wants to atone for her betrayal of him in the courtroom and find a way to help him put his career back on track.
When Ella's brother goes missing on one of Glacier National Park's most dangerous peaks, Gage and his team are called in for the rescue. But Gage isn't so sure he wants to help the woman who destroyed his life. More, when she insists on joining the search, he'll have to keep her safe while finding her reckless brother, a recipe for disaster when a snowstorm hits the mountain.
But old sparks relight as they search for the missing snowboarder--and suddenly, they are faced with emotions neither can deny. But when Ella's secret is revealed, can they learn to trust each other--even when disaster happens again?
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5FantasticNovember 2, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Nail-biting adventure high on a mountain top makes for a page turning read. You'll want to bundle up before you start in reading A Matter of Trust because most of it takes place in the frigid outdoors. Brrrrr. Mind you, having Gage around to keep you warm is a real plus. :-)
If you're familiar with this series, you've already met Gage and I have to admit to being really anxious for his story though surprised that it turned up in Book 3. I really expected Pete and Jess to take centre stage this time, based on the lead in from Book 2, but Warren delivers us some more foreshadowed angst where those two are concerned in this story. As well as even more romantic angst involving Ty. Oy, I will be on pins and needles until every member of the PEAK Rescue Teams finds their happily ever after. Lot's of delightful reading anticipation for me! And you -- hopefully.
Having said all that -- you could read A Matter of Trust as a standalone...but this series is so awesome with its realistic characters and action-packed adventures and toe-curling romance that you should really read the books in order. Plus there's a bit of a mystery that has been on the back burner in these first books that is going to amp up as the series progresses. Might as well get in on the emotional roller-coaster from the very start!
As in the other books in this series, Warren has woven an exceptional inspirational thread throughout her characters lives. Both Gage and Ella struggle with the need to be in control. It affects their lives in different ways until their journey in the wilderness leads them to face some hard truths. "And suddenly, despite the cold, a knot began to unravel in his chest. He could almost feel it -- the full breath of grace filling his lungs." (p 280) There are always so many great takeaway quotes in Susan May Warren's books and that one shot a thrill right through me.
This winning combination of romance and adventure makes for the kind of book you don't want to put down until you reach the end...which is kind of a cliffhanger...and whatever you do, don't read the teaser for the fourth book that comes at the end of this one -- not if you want to sleep from now until Troubled Waters releases in January!
rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5Mountain SkiingSeptember 22, 2017rkfallQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mountains, snow, skiing, friendships, helping others, and love... what a great mix of things this book has to offer to the reader. I found that the author pulled me in to the world of skiing and the beauty of it along with the danger. It makes you want to schedule a journey to the mountains of Montana for some intense skiing. This book is well named because there are trust issues all over the place. Made for a great read and I can't wait to read the next one in the series.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Kate5 Stars Out Of 5FabulousAugust 14, 2017KateQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Susan May Warren has yet again written an outstanding novel in her latest release, A Matter of Trust, book 3 in the Montana Rescue series. A page turner until the end, this book will take you on a ride where you will encounter a cast full of unforgettable characters, a plot thick with tension, and a resounding message of trust and forgiveness.
True to all Warren books, this novel derives its strength from complex characters, struggling with all too relatable problems amid a resounding plot that keeps you turning page after page. I especially loved how this book builds on the plots of the previous books. As I moved through the first few chapters, I felt like I was coming home to family, getting reacquainted with their lives and digging deeper into what makes them tick. Warren does an outstanding job of developing these characters, for it is through this development that her message rings clear. The power of forgiveness, second chances, and redemption flows off the pages in a way that challenged and touched me. There is something about Warren's style that impacts and gives a promise of hope amid even the darkest of circumstances.
I am thrilled that this is not the last book in the series. Warren closed this novel with a teaser that will keep me coming back for the next two installments. If only they could release sooner!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Ski Patrol Gage Watson is on the trail of teens in the wrong dangerous place in Glacier National Park, but when he caught up with them, one of the guys remembered Gages past life. Then Ella appeared and emotions and tension started flying all over the place. These two clearly have a dangerous history!
A Matter of Trust is an amazingly written story of dealing with past mistakes, of forgiveness and love, in the mist of tension and emotions. And I love how Susan May Warren incorporates Living the Christian life in the lives of her characters. Though some may take a while to let go and let God have control, it happens at some point in the story. Which is an awesome ministry, guiding readers to a better relationship with the Lord! I really enjoyed this third book in Montana Rescue Series! I ached for Gage because he truly was trying to forget his past and make something of his life, but his past kept coming back to bite him. And Ella, she was confusing because she was so wishy-washy about what she was trying to say. When Ellas brother was missing, emotions spiked so high and I could feel the tension coming out of there pages!
Ive never been to Glacier National Park, so it was a real treat for me as I read through the scenes that were so vividly described of the park. As I was reading this book as hi as the temperature is here, I thought myself freezing because I could feel the snow flying out of the pages of the book as well. Detention and that snow just felt so real and I loved it. I could keep going on and on talking about all of the action packed fun throughout this story, but you need to get the book and read it for yourself. Its just not the same if you dont read it yourself.
I highly, highly recommend a matter of trust. I received this book from the publisher, Revell. I was not required to write a review, it was my choice to write this positive review, and the opinions in this review are my honest opinions only.
