Ruby Jane by Susan May Warren
She loved…and lost.
Ruby Jane never thought she’d meet the man of her dreams while running from the police in Russia. That he’d steal her heart on a train to Siberia. But loving a former CIA officer comes with a price…a life of danger. A life of high stakes.
A life where he simply disappears…
He has no memory of the man he was.
Mack Jones has no memory of his past…just the dark sense that he is hiding. And, he wants to stay that way. Mack likes the life he’s built in a small tourist town, tucked away beyond the mountains, and has no desire to dig around in the gray areas of his memory.
When his place of business catches fire and Mack rescues the owner, he makes the news, which of course alerts the past he’s hoping to outrun.
The only person who can help him is a mysterious woman he doesn’t remember.
But a woman he desperately needs.
The surprising, thrilling conclusion to the Montana Marshalls series.
Bittersweet to have to end my time spent with this lovely family.
But what a story!
This is the thrilling conclusion to Susan May Warren’s suspense-filled series about the Marshall family. Ruby Jane’s story was a must read, and yet, it made me sad to finish it.
The story was simply amazing, and I have been mulling it over in my head for a few days, trying to think of the right words to give it a fitting review.
This book didn’t quite bring me the closure that I was hoping for. In spite of it being the end of the series, I still had lots of questions after I closed the book and had finished the last page.
In spite of all that, I loved this story. I couldn’t wait to read RJ’s story and see what happened. The previous book had ended at a major cliff hanger, and I couldn’t just wait and leave them all hanging like that….
So. Back to RJ. She’s just sure, cuz she can feel it deep down in her bones, that York is alive, even though she’s been told otherwise.
Then…she spots him in a TV interview. So she goes to that small town to find him. Only, when she gets there, he doesn’t even recognize her.
What is going on.
She’s determined to get to the bottom of this.
What if he’s still in danger.
Well…I think I need to stop with that. I don’t want to give any spoilers.
Suffice it to say that there is lots of danger and intrigue in this story. Twists and turns, events that you can’t possibly see coming. Susan May Warren is a master at this kind of story, and I really think this might be her best book yet.
I really loved the theme of redemption and forgiveness that came through in this story. No matter what we’ve done, no matter what’s in our past, if we cry out to God, He is willing to forgive and make us a new person.
The Montana Marshalls have quickly become a favorite fictional family of mine, and I hope to re-read these books again sometime in the future.
