    The history of rock climbing from the 70’s told in a beautiful love story. Megs and Mitch met when she was 16 and Mitch was 22. They fell in love climbing higher and higher in many dramatic places. Even when Mitch left for his last year at Stanford, Megs stayed faithful. When he returned they never separated again.

They fell in love climbing higher and higher in many dramatic places. Even when Mitch left for his last year at Stanford, Megs stayed faithful. When he returned they never separated again. Settling in Scarlet Springs was not high on Megs list of places to live, but Mitch saw a lot of opportunity, so she agreed. Little did she know that friends that became family would save her and Mitch’s life. Their goal was to gather and train a world class search and rescue team. After 49 years together they were retired from famous mountains and countries, but working to keep their team the best. Tragedy struck, and the test of Megs love seemed overwhelming. She persevered. I learned so much about climbing as a sport, one I have no interest to try! The love between these two people, the help and affection of friends and their refusal to give up makes this an a amazing read.

    Oh, my gosh, I don't know that I can do justice to this book. While a romance novel it's a true "Love Story" and all that brings. Megs and Mitch have been the older statesmen through out this series, Meg 62, Mitch 69, so no spring chickens, but they are there for everyone, ready to help at the first word. What I really loved about this one was the way the story was set up. So much of their past was woven in with the present and all that Mitch was going through after being hurt on a climb. You re Oh, my gosh, I don't know that I can do justice to this book. While a romance novel it's a true "Love Story" and all that brings. Megs and Mitch have been the older statesmen through out this series, Meg 62, Mitch 69, so no spring chickens, but they are there for everyone, ready to help at the first word. What I really loved about this one was the way the story was set up. So much of their past was woven in with the present and all that Mitch was going through after being hurt on a climb. You really got to know these two when they were young and dumb, when they were the trail blazers in rock climbing, as they got to know each other. The journals seemed to be such a bight spot of Megs as she sat at Mitch's side. Reading to him, helped Mitch, but it also gave her something to do. Reliving all their special moments, seeing things through Mitch's eyes, knowing how much she was loved. Then you had the present and how the whole town of Scarlett Springs let Megs and Mitch know how much they meant to them, from the fundraisers to those stopping by and taking care of Meg, while she took care of Mitch. But it was the welcome home by the town that really had me in tears, loved that both Mitch and Megs could see how much they were loved. The journals also brought about some peace to old friends, those still around and those not with them. I loved too that the old friends were able to see what Mitch and Megs built with the search and rescue, how it was all in memory of a special friend. His legacy lives on with each life they save. The ending to this one was perfect, so very much Megs and Mitch and the town they love. If you haven't read this series, you need to, if only to be able to really understand how beautiful this one is.

    3.5 stars Mitch/Megs were always the stalwart figures anchoring the search and rescue/climbing community in small town Scarlet Springs and instead of having them pass into tales of legend, Pamela Clare brings their story to life in ‘Take Me Higher’, where even very-established couples face their own test of fortitude.

Their story is revealed through flashbacks and journalling as Megs sees Mitch through his long road to recovery. Yet in some ways, they do still seem quite set apart from everyone else who have already had their HEAs written in the previous books. Call it generational difference or something perhaps, but it did feel as though Megs still emotionally holds herself back from the rest of the tight-knit crew, who very clearly love them both and look up to them like elders who command respect rather than contemporary besties. Megs/Mitch have always and only had each other in the past 48 years, lifted each other up when there was no one else, built their lives together and it does make sense that it's this small world with high walls that they want to stay in. It’s also in part due to how their story is told: like a private recounting, seen only through the eyes of Mitch and Megs and no one else’s. While there is something very clearly intimate about rehashing their history, Mitch/Megs stayed very much in their own world of healing and recovery, be it in the hospital room or a rehab facility as Scarlet Spring’s other residents flutter yet blur into the background.  Clare is clearly in her element here; writing as someone coming from a climbing family, her pages are filled with knowledge that’s given via personal experience. Consequently, ‘Take Me Higher’ reads like a story that’s pitched more to readers who already know something about climbing, or are at least interested in knowing and reading about the sport more. There is quite a bit of technical climbing information in there, written into a specific period of climbing history in the 1970s revolving around the ascents in California and the climbers who became legends because of what they did. And despite the spotlight that’s been placed on it in recent years, it’s still a niche one (and perhaps not as accessible as other sports) in many ways, which I suspect might draw some in, but not others. Clare writes some magic into Mitch’s recovery journey (some suspension of disbelief needed here)—but it’s a romance that’s pitched at happy endings after all, and seen in this light, ‘Take Me Higher’ feels like the stage curtain coming down on a small town all happily cosied and paired up and taking their final bows.

The couple are rock climbing while on a vacation when a serious life threatening accident happens, leaving Mitch in a coma. In the hospital, Meg reads to him the journal he kept about their first meeting in 1973 and all the years where they set rock climbing records and their love story small and big moments. This book felt a little more technical, with the rock climbing and medical elements but the emotions were still there. The story switch between past and present and waste no time entering into the action from the start. Despite being the ninth book in the series, I think it can be read as a standalone so you can discover that one of the great thing about the Colorado High Country series is the strong sense of community.

    This book is a dedication to family, friends, health professional and, of course, love. I absolutely loved the way the author chose to write the flashbacks. I can see she doesn't like to write at the first person LOL This book was also so moving. Megs and Mitch are a great couple together. I highly recommend the book.

    Sweet without being syrupy, passionate without angst, this is a delightful story about a couple that has been together for many years managing a crisis and reminiscing on their relationship. The flashbacks are fun, introducing new characters, while the current situation is detailed both clinically and emotionally. Lacking any mystery or drama, there is little plot to drive the story, but the people, the mountains, and the depth of enduring love make it an enjoyable read.

They have been an integral part of the books in this amazing series since the beginning. In this installment we learn about the budding relationship when Megs was only 16 and Mitch 21. Though he fell head over heels for Megs, sex was not an option for him and he was committed to wait till Megs turns 18 (literally to the minute!). And so the life journey of Megs and Mitch’s beautiful partnership begins and readers are graced with truly memorable, heartwarming as well as heart wrenching revelations from the private thoughts and recollections gathered from Mitch’s personal journals. As the story unfolds In present day, Megs (64) and Mitch (69) experience the unthinkable on a camping/climbing getaway. Mitch, critically injured during a climb suffers a traumatic brain injury and is in a coma. Megs was advised to talk to Mitch frequently in order to stimulate brain function. She records his journal and plays the recordings to Mitch via headphones. What we, as readers, are privy to in these writings is an awareness of a relationship of none other than two true soulmates . They share not only a passion for climbing, but also help each other to grow and become their best selves along the way. Megs is such a resilient, gutsy, courageous survivalist in every sense of the word. Her life experience unfortunately involves an abusive stepfather and at the other end of the spectrum, the most amazing man a woman could ever hope for. I am in awe of Mitch and his utmost respect for Megs throughout their relationship. I fell in love with him and his compassion for young Megs and how he helped her discover her own sexuality through a gifted self help book. My love for him only grew deeper as the journal readings unfolded. Ms. Clare penned Mitch’s gut wrenching recovery process in detail and boy was it powerful!!! I literally felt his struggles as he lay helplessly in the ICU and then ever so slowly makes improvements, trying to overcome his neurological deficits. Megs’ support was unwavering. As has been evident in the other installments, the town’s people rally behind those in need and in this story that was no exception. It’s always a feel good moment! Ms. Clare’s stellar writing created vivid imagery of the harrowing climbs of Mitch, Megs, and their friends. It played out as a movie for the mind’s eye! As a side note, it was refreshing to me to read a story of a couple in their 60’s that are still vibrant and sexually active. Life does not end as seniors. Nice little lesson. I hope Ms. Clare continues to add books to this series. It’s been amazing! Please take the time to read the Author’s note at the end of the story. Some surprising tidbits of information revealed. Ms. Clare, keep sharing your gift of the written word. Your fans need you!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️….

I don't love flashback books or 'old people' romance. But, although it was kind of both, this wasn't really either of those. It was way, way bigger and better than that. This is a story about love, and loss, and nostalgia for things that were and can never be again. It's about innocence and experience. It's about how fleeting and bittersweet life is, and how luck is such a fickle god. It's about time racing past us as we rush forward, until one day we glance over our shoulder and realize that so many days are behind us now, and things that feel in our hearts like they happened yesterday are decades in the rearview mirror. I am not a crier, but this one got me. I'm not a wallower, but after I turned the last page, my brain wouldn't let this story go. I circled it for a few hours, thinking about those strange twists that make up the journeys of life, thinking about things that were and can never be again, and then I did something I never, ever do. I went right back to Page 1 and started all over again

    I just love this series set in Nederland CO (I mean Scarlet Springs CO). Romance and suspense wonderfully combined in the Rocky Mountain Search and Rescue team, started by Megs Hill and Mitch Ahearn. Megs and Mitch are the heart of the organization, but have always been in the periphery of the series, until Clare decided to give them their own story.

My brother is a mountain climber (Mount McKinley, Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro) and rock climber (learning at the Garden of the Gods in C. Springs as a kiddo), so all the stories of climbing in Yosemite and all over the world were riveting to me. Megs and Mitch are wonderful people and a wonderful couple. I loved, loved, loved them and seeing their romance (and sex life!) continue into their sixties was such a nice change of pace for romances. Clare did a magnificent job weaving in their past into the story in a clever way while keeping the present story a nail biter. Take Me Higher has all the feels. Read the whole series - you won't be sorry!!

When a freak accident critically injures Mitch and leaves him in a coma, Megs is felling lost and helpless. After the doctor's suggest that coma patients respond to hearing a loved ones voice, Meg's grabs the journals Mitch has kept for 48 years, detailing their relationship and their climbing exploits and their rise as some of the greatest names in the sport. While Megs reads to Mitch, we get the history of one of the series favorite couples. For long time followers of the Colorado High Country series, we all get what we've been waiting for. If you've never read any of the other books in the series it's a great introduction. You'll meet members of the Rocky Mountain Search and Rescue Team whose stories you can read in previous books. But whether you're a long time reader or a newbie, don't read this book without plenty of tissues nearby. As always, Pamela Clare has delivered a story full of emotion with a side of humor and sarcasm. This is a story not to be missed.

After a tragedy struck they formed the Rocky Mountain Rescue Team so they've been central characters in the Colorado High Country series but we've never known their whole story. They are the foundation of the Team and the entire series. We've also never learned as much about Mitch Ahearn, he been quietly working the Team with Megs and supporting her. I was thrilled to learn more about him as a person. It's a beautiful story and I'm glad we finally got to read it.

This is a great series, and opens up a world not many of us ever enter into! Each story is also a love story; this is my favorite, because the couple started the rescue operation, and are in their late 60's...

    I thoroughly enjoyed Take Me Higher and Megs and Mitch's story. We knew some of their history from learning about it in prior books of the series. This was an emotional journey through the present and past as Megs went through their story of being on-the-edge-of-history climbers in the seventies interwoven with Mitch's recovery from a horrific accident. I loved how the two storylines came together and there were many heartbreakingly beautiful moments.

While this felt like it could be an end to CHC, I hope it's not. It is one of my favorite series and I re-read a number of the books often.

    I'm 30 and I actually never read books about older couples. But Pamela's books are an autobuy for me and I absolutely ADORED Jack's and Janet's book, which is also about "an older couple" in the I-team series. So naturally I bought take me higher and I'm so glad I did! It was such a sweet story and it was so nice to read the flashbacks from Mitch's point of view. I may have ugly cried when she revealed what happened with their friend. If you hesitate because of the "older couple" thrope: don't! I'm 30 and I actually never read books about older couples.

    High County Love Story I admit, Pamela Clare is one of my favorite authors, so it is no surprise i love this book. Megs and Mitch have had at least small part in every Colorado High Country Novel and to hear their story is perfect. They share a love that many never know. They climb and rescue...they are integral parts of Scarlet Springs. This truly is a feel good novel. Although it's the 8th or 9th book, it truly is the beginning.

    WOW!!! #dammitpamela this is the love story we all want to have! Megs & Mitch’s love pulls them through 49 years together. I managed to drag out reading for as long as I could!! All Pamela Clare’s books are amazing but this is the best one yet. I am in awe of Pamela’s writing, her attention to detail and how she gradually submerges you into each story so completely that when you finish each book you are heartbroken to realise you do not live among these characters

    Climb the Highest Mountain Ms Clare’s Mountain climbing series has been a great one to follow. The characters in each of these books have been so real the reader is tempted to seek out Scarlet Springs and get acquainted! The story of Mels and Mitch was such a story. The use of Mitch’s journals was great. Mels learned as much about Mitch as the reader did. This was a very good read.

    An amazing book, with two people who love and respect each other from the beginning. Mitch and Megs are incredible, 2 people who have a passion for climbing and for each other. Loved the back in time aspect, how it was brought forward in the story (don’t want to spoil it, but it was really well done). A story about healing physical and emotional wounds, amazing story telling and writing. All together my favorite book this year. Couldn’t recommend this novel enough!!!

    A very emotional love story about a vintage couple, or Megs and Mitch for those already familiar with the Colorado High series. Had not a clue about any of the climbing terminology but then I took it as an indication of how well researched the book was (as with any of this author’s written works). Bravo! 👏🏼

    Another good story from Pamela Clare. Since I've read most of the books in this series I can't tell if it's a stand alone story. I know all the characters and appreciate the update in their lives. This story also tells me how the Rescue company began. Well done. Another good story from Pamela Clare.

    Excellent read, as usual! Pamela did it again! I love how she writes and portrays stories. I'm glad to say whenever I get the notification that Pamela has dropped a new book it is an instant buy. It was good to see the dynamics of the 70s and of Meg and Mitch. Excellent read, as usual! Pamela did it again! I love how she writes and portrays stories.

    Finally Married I really adored this book. The way the author keep going back in time to detail their relationship from the day they metro the present. I truly thought this was one of the best.
