Kacey Fairing, a search and rescue helicopter pilot, returns home to Mercy Falls, Montana on leave from the military to spend time with her daughter, Audrey. While on leave she takes a job as the pilot for Peak Rescue. What she doesn't know is Ben is home too. Ben King is a big name in country music now but it wasn't always that way. He grew up in Mercy Falls and now finds himself back home to help his dad recover from an accident and manage Peak Rescue. Ben and Kacey have a deep connection that time hasn't been able to erase. Now that they're working together, their long buried feelings begin to bubble to the surface. Will they set aside mistakes and misunderstandings of the past to perhaps forge a future neither of them anticipated?
This was a great start to a new series. I loved getting the know the folks of Mercy Falls. The author brings you into the story and doesn't let you go until you've turned the last page. I appreciated the fact that the people are realistic and flawed just like we are but there are also some great encouraging nuggets of truth sprinkled along the way. I loved the secondary story going on between Sierra and Ian which I think might carry over into the next book. There is also a mystery going on concerning Ian's niece which remains open-ended. This story however, had a very satisfying conclusion. I now look forward to 'Rescue Me', the next book in the series and I have put the prequel, "If Ever I Would Leave You" on my reading list. If you love stories about life, love and second chances, along with a some hold-your-breath moments then I would totally recommend a trip to Mercy Falls to experience for yourself the Wild Montana Skies!

A few favorite quotes:
"See, God can fix even the worst disasters, make something new and whole out of them."
But in fact, having faith is the bravest thing we can do. It's the unwavering confidence that God loves us. That although we can't see the road ahead, we can see God. A God we know, a God that loves us - so much that he won't give up on us. Won't let us get lost even when we think we are. Real faith takes everything you have- throwing your life, your heart, everything you are with complete abandon into the embrace of God."
And maybe that's his MO - using the debris of our mistakes to show us how he can save us, rescue us from our dark places. We just have to have that crazy faith that he'll do it, despite our mistakes, our fears, even our pride."
