Rarity Mountain takes the premise of survival for money off the TV screen and puts it between the pages of a book. Author Sara Foust has created the drama of two people enduring intense physical denial, discomfort, and dodging danger to win the prize that will solve all their problems. Yet, the two contestants, Simon Fincuff and Dr. Fern Strongbow discover that their physical well-being is not all that’s at stake. Forced to face their own personal demons of their pasts, both grow in not only stamina, but in a knowledge of themselves, each other, and God. Add to the drama the strange and complex nature and motivations of the creator of the survivor TV show, Survival Tennessee, and you have a novel filled with colorful characters, suspense, and pulse pounding adventure. Rarity Mountain is the third in the Love, Hope, and Faith Series. This wilderness adventure story explores not only the question of how far the characters will go to achieve financial gain, but how much courage they have to confront the darkest secrets of the past. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy romance with an intense and challenging faith journey.

I love how relatable the characters in Rarity Mountain are. Most of us will probably never participate in a wilderness survival show, but I'm willing to bet we've all fallen on tough financial times more than once in our lives, and most of us probably have a secret or two from our younger years that we hope no one ever finds out. Watching the story play out was exciting and interesting! There were plenty of nerve wracking moments where I found myself holding my breath, and not able to put the book down. I really enjoyed watching the relationship develop between Fern and Simon, and who could resist cute little Dexter!?! (you'll just have to read the book!) My favorite things in all of Sara's books are the beautifully mesmerizing descriptions of the natural world. Sara has a way of using words to paint pictures that leave you with no doubt of how much she loves nature, and the beautiful East Tennessee Mountains that she calls home. I highly recommend this book, as well as the first two books in Sara's Faith, Hope, Love series

Drama - no matter the cost What Simon and Fern thought was going to be an intense survival adventure turned a bit terrifying as they began to wonder if the TV director might be out for something more than simply an exciting show. Rarity Mountain was a different type of suspense from the first two in the series. Simon and Fern were cast together to survive in the wilderness for a television show. Their individual motivations for going on the show made perfect sense in the context of the story. Would I have done that in their situations? Are you kidding? I would die in the wilderness like that!! There were a couple of things that could have been better. In some places, the time frame seemed jumbled. Also, at the beginning of the book, Simon pretty much brushed off God despite knowing about Him (his brother is a pastor). Though we saw a point where he knew he needed prayer because of an accident, all of a sudden nearer the end he appeared to have a strong faith. The switch seemed a bit too abrupt and could have been developed more. These are minor quibbles, though, and I really enjoyed Rarity Mountain. My heart was torn for Presley and her feelings of inadequacy. With my parents supporting me so well, it is very hard to imagine what that would be like, yet the author had me experiencing a little of that emotion. The friendship that sprung up so unexpectedly between Maya and Paisley was so refreshing. I loved Maya and am looking forward to going back and reading all her books to learn more about her. She and Paisley bonded over their grief for life not working out according to their own plans. In the midst of the yearning, are fun zoo puns, a budding romance, and especially a growing awareness that God just might be more than a disinterested Creator and that He just might have a plan for Paisley's life that is beyond what she imagines. The ending of Room for Cream was satisfying and yet a cliff-hanger. It certainly left me hungry for more. The next book is slated for release sometime this spring. So I now have the opportunity to go back and start from the first book of the Maya Davis series! Read with a Preview at AmongTheReads.net I was given a copy of this book.
