The last thing Search and Rescue helicopter pilot Kacey Fairing needs upon returning home to Mercy Falls, Montana, is to run into her mistakes. After a devastating crash during her recent military tour in Afghanistan, she is emotionally broken but ready to start putting her life back together. She just wants to reconnect with her teenage daughter and spend the summer working as the new lead pilot of PEAK Rescue in Glacier National Park.
But her mistakes aren’t so easily forgotten. Because Ben King is also back in town.
Country music star Ben King abandoned his past when he moved to Nashville thirteen years ago to start his career. But when his father is injured, Ben is called home to help manage PEAK Rescue during his recovery. He doesn’t realize his father has ulterior motives until his old flame, Kacey, walks into his house and back into his heart.
Now, with Mercy Falls in a state of emergency due to flash floods, Kacey and Ben will have to work together to save lives. But when secrets are uncovered and old hurts rise to the surface, will they walk away again? Or can they find a different ending to their country love songs?
Wild Montana Skies, a book that had a hold on me since I first read it several years ago, in 2018, maybe. I would keep coming back to this book, never reading it, but it stuck in my head for a while, telling me I need to reread the first books in the Montana Rescue series before reading the rest of the series.
And I’m glad I did, as much as I had liked it the first time I enjoyed it just as much this second time though I saw some things differently. Now, I don’t agree with what the characters did, I don’t like that they kept certain secrets as long as they did … But! I did like seeing the story progress.
Ian Shaw is one of the main pulls in reading this series, he’s just the type of broken character I love reading about, and I look forward to finishing the series and finding out what happens with him, Sierra, and his niece, Esme, after all of the things that have happened to them in this book, quite painful, I tell you!
