When Deputy Sam Brooks commits to something, nothing can sway him--not just on the job as liaison between the Mercy Falls sheriff's department and PEAK Rescue, but in his private life. He's the one who stuck around to take care of his mother after his father's accidental death. And he's the one--perhaps the only one--who believes Sierra Rose is the perfect girl for him. Safe, practical, and organized, she's nothing like her hippie, impulsive, bleeding heart sister, Willow.
Willow, however, has been in love with Sam Brooks for as long as she can remember. But she wants her sister to have a happy ending. Besides, Willow has other things to focus on--namely, nabbing the job as youth pastor for her small-town church. Best thing for her to do is to purge Sam from her heart.
Neither can predict the events that will bring them together in a fight for their lives in the forbidding wilderness of Glacier National Park. Stranded, injured, and with the winter weather closing in, Sam and Willow will have to work together to save a crew of terrified teenagers. As they fight to survive, they might just discover a new hope for love.
I love Susan May Warren's books and this was no exception. Willow isn't organized like her sister. She lives life full of love and life. She is happy and wants her sister to be happy as well. Sam is her sister's boyfriend. He is also the man Willow is head over heals about. Through a series of crazy events, the two of them wind up in a life or death situation and have to depend on each other for survival. Not to mention that they have a bunch of teenagers from the church to keep alive as well.
I enjoyed the characters through this. The two sisters that just wanted each other to be happy. That was so sweet! Sam being so torn but watching him grow and work through his issues was great. I really liked all the teenagers and how they were secondary characters but each was unique. I didn't really like the preacher or his wife. They seemed way too judgmental but that is the way of it sometimes. I really want to know what happens with a couple of the different secondary story lines so I cannot wait to read more.
It was a 5/5 for me.
