Synopsis:

Billionaire Ian Shaw can have everything he wants--except a happy ending. Or at least that's what it feels like with his fortune recently liquidated, his niece, Esme, still missing, and the woman he loves refusing to speak to him. In fact, he doubts she would date him even if they were stranded on a deserted island.

Despite her love for Ian, Sierra Rose knows he has no room in his life for her as long as the mystery of his missing niece goes unsolved. The only problem is, Sierra has solved it, but a promise to Esme to keep her whereabouts secret has made it impossible to be around Ian.

When the PEAK chopper is damaged and Sierra lacks the funds to repair it, Ian offers a fundraising junket for large donors on his yacht in the Caribbean. But the three-day excursion turns into a nightmare when a rogue wave cripples the yacht and sends the passengers overboard. Shaken up and soaked to the bone, Ian finally has a chance to test his theory when he and Sierra do indeed find themselves washed up on a strange, empty shore.

It will take guts and gumption for the PEAK team to rescue the duo. But it will take a miracle to rescue Ian and Sierra's relationship.

I am grateful to Revell for giving me a copy of this book. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


My review

The pages of Troubled Waters are packed with so much.  Forest fires, missing people, murder, shipwreck, loss of fortune, rejection, second chances.  Author Susan May Warren weaves these elements together in a story that is moving and dramatic.

My heart was pumping through the adrenaline-inducing adventures throughout the book.  And the rogue wave that caused the shipwreck that resulted in Ian and Sierra (separately) drifting through the sea, each thinking the other was lost, had my heart in my throat.  (I have a terror of the ocean and being caught like that!)

Throughout the story, Ian and Sierra had to learn to call on God.  That He loves unconditionally.  That He is the only one who is in control.  And until they were able to surrender themselves to Him, no relationship between them could work.

there comes a time in a man’s life when he either has to get right with Jesus and ask for help or go it alone.
