I was quite excited when I heard about this book because I love Connor and Liza (and pretty much every other character in Deep Haven and in the Montana Fire books). I absolutely adore when authors bring back past characters, and I while I knew the story would take place in Deep Haven, I did not really think about how EVERYONE would be at least mentioned in the book. Characters from so many books, it is amazing. This book really feels like a family reunion and I am so happy that Warren created this book and the best part is that it all flowed together. She did not just jam the characters into the book but she placed them in there where they fit.
I'll Be There was not only a sweet book filled with some of my favorite literary characters, it had a lot of meaning to it. Liza and Connor had to really refocus their minds on God and give up a lot of issues they had been holding onto for so long. Warren is a master at writing real characters with flaws and as normal people who need God.
Also this book is not one where you are a 100% certain about how it will end. I am usually sure right away what's going to happen in a book but I was super nervous all the way to the end because I was not sure what would happen with Connor and Liza. It was awesome since that does not happen a lot for me.
So, get ready to be completely engrossed, on the edge of your seat and utterly delighted by this one. If possible, try to start it when you have several hours to just be alone with it, because I promise you it is hard to put down and stop thinking about. This one has all the feels; suspense, action, romance, faith, hope and more... I see the seeds for some new story lines in here!
I would recommend reading Playing with Fire, Book 2 in the Montana Fire Series first. Connor and Liza meet in another novel but the meat of their story is found in the aforementioned book. Truthfully, Connor and Liza show up in several of Warren's novels (individually), but you do not have to read them all to get this one. I can however, highly recommend all of her earlier books, they were wonderful!
(Sigh, I am still in the ahhh moment over this one! Loved it!)
I'll Be There focuses on Liza Beaumont, who we first met in Happily Ever After, and Conner Young of Playing With Fire. They're finally getting married after undergoing personal traumas and plenty of adventure, but both are unsure they're ready. Conner's past won't let go of him, and Liza doubts she can be the wife Conner truly needs. She can't escape the post-traumatic stress associated with a grizzly attack that nearly killed her. How can she be a partner to a man whose middle name is Danger, who takes pleasure in risk, who needs to save the day at his own peril?
As usual, Susan May Warren delves into these and other character questions, making Conner and Liza feel like real people. Both gain sympathy and empathy instantly, and they keep it throughout a harrowing book. The question of whether they will be together and in one piece for their wedding hovers over every chapter, making you anxious to keep reading until you know the answers. Along the way, Susie throws in a couple of plot twists worthy of major double takes. I've seen other authors use similar twists, but her versions were the first in awhile that really surprised me, without seeming to come totally out of left field.
I think what I appreciated most about I'll Be There was the union of tones. Liza's half of the story, if you will, reads like a classic Deep Haven romance. Wedding disasters and comedic mishaps abound, but underneath, she's dealing with real, relatable, and raw issues. Conner's part is classic Montana Fire--action-driven, with plenty of grit and suspense. Sometimes the two don't mesh perfectly, but they always mesh well. Every word is enjoyable, every character developed, and every action scene beautifully paced.
With all this in mind, it pains me to say there's anything about I'll Be There that I don't like, and if I'm honest, my preferences are more personal than anything. Sometimes character development falls by the wayside because of plot-driven scenes. The suspense thread involving the NSA and Sons of Freedom can be confusing unless you have a background in that sort of thing or read a lot of political/military literature or thrillers. A couple descriptions seem overused as well, and in general, some parts of the book feel too rushed. That said, I still recommend it, as well as Susan May Warren's other series. I'm anxious to know if she'll try to unite Deep Haven and Montana Fire again.
