ONE LAST SHOT (Alaska Air One Rescue #1) by Susan May Warren, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

" . . . God will do amazing things with someone who is willing to let him."

Country music star Oaken Fox joins a reality show deep in the woods of Alaska in order to do an "amazing thing" . . . earn a hefty donation for a charity group that is near and dear to his heart for personal reasons, and maybe, just maybe paying off a debt of guilt at the same time. When things go terribly wrong and Oaken is picked up on the side of the road half-frozen by Air One Rescue EMT Boo Kingston, he extends his time in Alaska while his film crew takes the plan in a different direction: inserting Oaken into the rescue team to play the role of a "celebrity hero".

Oh . . . no, no, no. Boo Kingston is not going to make the same mistake twice, falling for a handsome face, no matter how easy it is to be mesmerized by Oaken Fox and his inherent charm. Except, it feels different than before, the "before" being a public fiasco that dubbed her "Boo Hoo" and sent her scurrying away from family and friends . . . all the way into the Alaskan wilderness.
Almost immediately, I felt at home with these characters. Yes, there are adrenaline rushes (helicopter drops, cliff rescues, icy mud flats with tidal waves - no thank you) and tender by-the-light-of-the-moon moments, (humming with romantic lyrics), but there's also life lived together under the tutelage of an incredible leader who never shies away from giving out spiritual wisdom at just the right moment, (a big guy appropriately named Moose) and in this case, a hero who gets his head on straight just in time to be . . . well, a hero. And a heroine who "wasn't lost. She was found."

BackCover Blurb:
When country music star Oaken Fox joins survivalist Mike Grizz's new adventure show in the Alaskan wilderness, he just wants to boost his fan base. But when tragedy strikes, and Air One Rescue must save them, Oaken just wants to quit. Too bad his producer has other plans—signing him on with Air One Rescue as a recruit and making a reality show...

EMT Boo Kingston did not join Air One Rescue to train a celebrity. But she's a rookie to the team, so yes, she'll train Oaken and keep him alive and not for a minute pay attention to his charm...

And then five women go missing from a resort during a bachelorette weekend gone south. Now, Air One and the rescue team will have to use all their skills--and manpower, including Oaken--to find them before a blizzard settles in. But can they work together before tragedy strikes?
