A Matter of Trust by Susan May Warren

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?

Heidi here. This was the first of the Montana Rescue Series by Susan May Warren that I've read, and I simply adored it. I tend to like more of a cozy romance, but I should have known better! I didn't think I'd enjoy reading about snowboarding, but again, I should have known better! Susan May Warren had me hooked from the first page, though I must admit up front that I adore her writing. I can always count on her words to engage me, and she did it again. Gage and Ella were practically four-dimensional they were so complex, their wounds so painful I felt for them each time their past was torn open a little. The subploy of Ty and Brett was expertly woven in, can't wait to read a bit more about them in a later novel.

The premise of this book doesn't disappoint, Suzie writes such BIG books with BIG characters, and she somehow does it over and over again in fresh backdrops with unique characters. She is a master storyteller.
