Edit: Dropping my rating. "Okay" describes it best...cut out all the sloppy romance and I'd be okay, but I just don't like thinking back to grownups acting like teens and refusing to grow up and get a life and instead being stuck in drama. I tried to be nice to the book because I liked where we ended up, but who am I fooling? I thought we ended up there in book one. It's like leaping to the top of a sand heap and sliding down over and over again. These kids never learn from theirs or from ...more

This was the first Susan May Warren novel I have read, and I had high hopes for it. The summary was very intriguing and the beginning captured my interest right away. Unfortunately, due to several reasons, Storm Front just didn't live up to expectations.

I found the multiple POVs very confusing, and it drew me out of the story to be constantly switching between four different people's distinct stories. While Ty and Brette are the true main characters, Ben and Kacey's story, while interesting

Tons of action in the fifth book of the Montana Rescue Series!

Ty continues to be grounded and serve more as a generalist for the PEAK team. Brette is a photographer with storm chasers. She is struggling with her health prognosis and to pay her medical bills. Both find themselves in a Minnesota town devastated by a tornado. The clock is ticking on finding survivors alive. Ty does a great job of finding clues to lead him closer to where the survivors could be.

Storm Front also focuses on Ben and

Goodness! What an action-packed addition to the Montana Rescue series! I simply love the way these characters feel like family to me as I read. I have really enjoyed the fact that this series is a nice, long one and that it is also connected to the Montana Fire series, which I love. I highly recommend both of these series of books, and of reading the books in order.

Ty was really a stand up guy in Storm Front. I felt for him and for the insecurities and guilt that he had been carrying around. I
Storm Front was definitely a page turner from start to finish packed with plenty of action. Having lived in Texas for many years and dealing with tornadoes, I really enjoyed the premise of the story with the PEAK search and Rescue Team. This is the first book in this series I have read so it took me a few chapters before I got the characters all straight in my head, but it definitely didn't spoil the story for me although I would imagine reading the stories in sequence would give the characters ...more

'I know you feel decimated, but don't let your circumstances tell you who God is. Let who God is tell you how to deal with your circumstances.'

Reading a novel written by Susan May Warren is akin to going to a powerful church service where the message speaks directly to a situation in your own life. Seriously. I don't know how she manages this; well, yes, I do. She writes under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Time and time again, I have been ministered to in my spirit by her words on the page.

I am so obsessed with this series (and the previous series) by Susan May Warren. I watch and wait to see when the next book is coming out and then stalk NetGalley waiting, hoping to see a review copy become available. Honestly, I am a stalker of this series. Why? I love the characters, who cross over throughout the books. They become so familiar to me and that sense of family and belonging shines through. I also love the sense of adventure and danger that is in full force. It pushes these ...more

I love this series, but Storm Front began a little slow for me. It picked up the brief relationship between Ty and Brette from two books ago (A Matter of Trust), and there wasn't a strong foundation there to begin with. The first part of the book is definitely plot-centered, but it also begins to show the inner struggles of Ty and Brette that they have faced during their time apart, and are still struggling with. A secondary story line is the faltering relationship of Ben and Kacey from the ...more

A twister of a race against nature. The tension comes from a complex crowd of old and new friends and their race against mother nature. The hero is pitch-perfect and swoon-worthy, partly because he doesn't realize it. And the heroine is wounded in such rich ways that only the hero can touch. The layers from past characters add to the novel without making it hard for those who haven't read prior books to keep up.

Confession: I've had a soft spot for Ty since I first met him, so I had great expectations for this book, which can be dangerous. Based on my 5 stars review you can guess it was a success!

What I compleeetly adore about this series is that it's very character driven. Susan May Warren takes her time digging into each character's personality, story, fear, and dreams. And I like that we get to follow side stories in addition to the main one. The romance is usually a bit cheesy for my taste, but her

Storm Front was written very well, however the main romance was a bit disappointing. I liked the characters, just the romance was not my cup of tea and I can't even explain why, exactly.

I enjoyed the storm chasing aspect, even though it was kind of freaky. I liked how previous MC from the series were in this book and it was nice to see what was going on in their lives.

All in all, I liked Storm Front, but it was my least favorite of the series so far.

This fifth book in the Montana Rescue series drops the reader in the continuing storyline. Although the tale is complete in itself, the backstories of the main characters factor in the plot, and while fans of the series know them, new readers do not. Eventually, enough clues are dropped that newbies to the series can mostly figure out the backstories. The characters are well-developed and the intricate plot is an adventurous and exciting one. The writing is good, and the religious aspect is ...more

Storm Front is another adrenaline laced action romance from Susan May Warren. I enjoyed it and got caught up with Ty and Brette during the twisters. I got a little annoyed at times with Brette and also with the secondary romance with Ben and Kacey. I got a little flustered with her. But, in Warren style it all worked out for a thunderous and wonderful ending. I can't wait for the final installment with Pete and Jess!

When you turn to the first page of a novel by Susan May Warren, you can count on three things:

3) She loves her craft.
2) She does her research.
1) She is passionate about her Jesus.

When you read the final page of a novel by Susan May Warren, you can count on three things:

3) You've cried buckets of tears.
2) You'll have imaginary people as friends forever.
1) You're going to want the next book NOW.

High-stakes adventure and tense moments that will steal your breath away are just a few of things you will find while reading this story.

STORM FRONT is the fifth book in this ongoing adventure series Montana Rescue, which isn't limited to just Montana. This particular story is mostly set in Minnesota where the PEAK team is trying to find missing junior high and high school athletes who went missing in the tornado. Add to the fact that a PEAK team member has gone missing with the athletes. Of course they're going to get involved.

Wow, the newest book in the Montana Rescue series is a wild ride across the Midwest, as the PEAK team comes to the aid of a town ripped apart by a tornado. Lives are also torn up and restored by faith, prayer, compassion, and love in this latest installment of the series. Recommend reading these in order to get the full back story and better understand the drama behind the dialogue.

Five stars are not enough to convey the true awesomeness of Storm Front. What is it about this Montana Rescue series? It just gets better and better and better with each book - and they were pretty darn good to start off with.

When you open a Susan May Warren book you can count on explosive action, romantic tension, and honest faith that flows through every page like a beautiful ribbon.

Ms. Warren loves her craft, and Jesus which is evident through each word she places on the page, and every character she creates.

Storm Front starts off in a whirlwind, literally. An entire town is obliterated by a tornado and we get a front row seat as the PEAK Team work together to rescue the victims.

Again, to be able to follow all the characters and side plots, you need to read this series in order and start with the prequel.

I really liked the action and adventure around the tornadoes and especially loved how the author used the chaos, danger and wreckage of a tornado to symbolise life and its difficulties as well as true love. This author always has a way to bring her stories back to God and how it can fit any our everyday life.

Another great book in this awesome series!

It was great to see Ty and Brette's relationship progress as they went through some personal growth and changes, both together and apart. The theme of trust is a strong one.

As usual, catching up with the other PEAK members is always a treat and I especially liked the sweet resolution to Ben and Kacey's relationship.

Looks like the next book will bring Pete and Jess's relationship into focus, plus Esme/Shae's "problem". Can't wait for it!

I’m at a loss to have words eloquent enough to convey the depth of emotions and feelings I get each time I pick up one of Susan May Warrens’ books.
Her stories will teach you, life lessons you never thought you needed to learn and take you to places your mind could not possibly think up. Like chasing down a tornado and running for your life from storm after storm.
She does this all in such a way where you as a reader, are drawn in and can’t let go until the end. She uses action and suspense,

The storms in this book are both literal and figurative. Ty Remington is part of a Search and Rescue (SAR) team. Brette, Jonas, Nixon, and Geena are a storm chasing team. Ty and Brette have a previous history, and their lives intersect again when a tornado hits near where Jonas and Nixon live.

Ty and Brette's story, intermingled with Ben and Kacey's struggle to finally become a family was a beautiful read. All of the PEAK team coming together to help find some students and a woman missing after a tornado tears through a small town. Ty came with PEAK, and Brette with a tornado chasing team. Brette's team member has a brother who is one of the missing which brings her back to face Ty, her fears, feelings and both of their hopes.

"Storm Front" is a Christian romantic suspense novel. It's the fifth book in a series. I'd recommend reading the previous books in the series as there are ongoing story lines that were further developed in this book. For example, Ben and Kacey's relationship crumbled as their wedding was canceled yet again. Some of the misunderstandings that they originally struggled with are back. They must work through their insecurities and the differences in their priorities. I appreciate that the author ...more
