Wait for Me
By Susan May Warren
Wait for Me is book 6 in the Montana Rescue series by Susan May Warren. I did not read any of the previous 5 books and I am wondering now if the book would have been better had I read them. The book can be read without reading the others but there are a lot of seemingly developed characters and backstory that one might need to know. The author does a good job of filling in the questions by adding a lot of pertinent backstory right in the book which is helpful. The story is high energy for sure. Once I got to about 40% in it picked up and was hard to put down. I finished the last half in an afternoon. The beginning started a little rocky for me, but this could have been because I didn’t read the other books. I had trouble keeping all the people straight. The snippets about each character at the beginning were short and kind of quick moving so it was hard to separate them all and remember who was who. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to finish the book. I started to catch on though and kept going… and I was glad I did. I did have some trouble with some disjointed sections. For example, when the car leaves the wedding and they all of a sudden are getting plowed off the road? Where did that come from? It seemed totally out of left field. It might have been less jarring had there been some kind of bridge into it… maybe the occupants of the car thought they were being followed which led to a little bit of a chase or something. Instead it was so sudden it was a bit unnatural. The other part that I struggled with was when they would jump back in time and tell some backstory. There was no differentiation. I had to go back and reread to find out what was going on. It might have been helpful if there was something there to warn the reader that they were hopping back in time. The Christian references were subtle but timely. Overall the story was great. The details were well written and the characters were developed well. I would love to go back and read the other books in the series when I have time.
I received a copy of this book from Revell. This has in no way influenced my review. I was under no compulsion to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
