A Matter of Trust by Susan May Warren

A Matter of Trust (Montana Rescue, #3)
Book Description:
Champion backcountry snowboarder Gage Watson has left the limelight behind after the death of one of his fans. After being sued for negligence and stripped of his sponsorships, he's remade his life as a ski patrol in Montana's rugged mountains, as well as serving on the PEAK Rescue team. But he can't seem to find his footing--or forget the woman he loved, who betrayed him. 
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?

My Thoughts:
This is an awesome series!  I was worried when I started this book that it wasn't going to pull me in the way the first two did, but boy was I wrong!  Gage has issues from his past life in the spotlight that he wishes he could forget.  One of those is the way Ella betrayed him.  Now she is a senator and she needs Gage's help to find her brother before he is lost in the storm.  Gage is a member of the PEAK Rescue team and they are capable of handling the rescue.  Ella adds the element of an unknown when she insists on going and neither of them is prepared for all that happens.
So I really liked Gage.  He went from a thrill seeker to a life saver (ok, not completely by choice but still he made the transition).  Ella's secrets are sad and angering to me.  I felt bad for her that her brother was out there and could be killed but I thought she was a bit crazy for not letting the professional do the job.  That being said, it made for a good story!  Gage had a lot to forgive and I'm not sure I could have if I was in his position.  I guess that is where God's guidance comes in!  Really love this cast of characters and cannot wait to see who the author writes about next.
It was a 5/5 for me.
