A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Jonas (Minnesota Marshalls #2) by Susan May Warren: Book Review

  *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Jonas Marshall is done storm-chasing, plagued with the memory of a terrible accident that paralyzed a fellow chaser, so the last thing he’s going to do is run into more danger. Now, he’s just a simple weatherman deploying dirigibles in an experiment to track weather patterns in Slovenia.

As far from danger as he can get.

But danger comes knocking in the form of hiker in need of rescue, and he can’t deny that her companion—beautiful 
Sibba Kovac—is a great distraction from the guilt that haunts him…until she paraglides right out of his life.

Probably for the best.

But danger still won’t leave him alone when a storm knocks his dirigibles out of the sky, and he happens upon one that looks tampered with…

It is. And worse, it’s carrying what could be radioactive waste. At least according to EOD expert Sibba…who finds herself face-to-face with the rescuer she can’t forget. But she’s not looking for him—her grandfather is missing, and she’ll stop at nothing to find him.

When her missing grandfather leads to the threat of a dirty bomb, she’s the only one who can stop it. And Jonas is the only man brave enough to run into danger with her. But she doesn’t have room in her heart to love him—not when she lives with death in her periphery. Can the right man, at the right time help her see beyond her fears to a future?

And if they have a chance to save the world, can Jonas let go of the woman he loves?

The thrilling second book in the epic romantic suspense of the Minnesota Marshalls!

USA Today best-selling Susan May Warren is the multi-award-winning novelist of over 90 novels in five different genres. With nearly 2 million books sold, her stories have been translated into French, Dutch, Polish, German, Swedish, Ukrainian and Italian, and are on the bookshelves around the world, as far away South Africa, Australia, and Russia. She's been featured in Christian Women Today magazine, and appeared on the Harvest show and other national television shows.

Jonas is the second book in the Minnesota Marshalls series. This is definitely one of those series that really does read better when read in order. There are threads of the story that go throughout, with the next story being set up during the current... and frankly, there are just a lot of characters that I think would be hard to keep track of if this were your first introduction. There are also characters from various other series that make appearances, so having that background from those is definitely beneficial, though probably not altogether necessary.

This is by one of my must-read authors and this book is a prime example of why. The stories are quite literally---epic. The adventures are extreme, the characters are larger than life, and the stakes are sky-high. A storm chaser and a woman who diffuses bombs for a living? Like I said, larger than life. And yet, Susan May Warren pulls it off masterfully! I can't help but be drawn into the story, and find myself unable to put it down. 

Because I am a big fan, seeing all those familiar characters from previous series is definitely a huge bonus too. Even as one series ends, I know that there's that chance that I'll see them again anyway, and I love just how intertwined they are all. 

Overall, this is another fantastic read, and one that fans of epic romance adventures are sure to want to experience for themselves. I'm at the edge of my seat wondering what will happen in the series next.
