I have really enjoyed Dani Pettrey's Alaskan Courage series, and this latest volume ranks right up there with the best! This book had me on the edge of my seat from the prologue, and I couldn't put it down.
I love the McKenna family and have really enjoyed these stories. You don't have to read the first books to understand what is going on, but it would definitely help. There are so many characters involved who show up in each book that it might be a good idea to keep a log -- it's easy to forget some of the personality quirks of each!
Pettrey's descriptions of the landscape and activities that occur make you feel the cold! She has a wonderful way of setting you into the story and making you feel like you see the landscape instead of are being told about it. I can't wait for the next book.

cruise ship leading adventure excursions is Darcy. And in typical Darcy
fashion, she's digging up more trouble.

as they are heading into more remote regions of Alaska and eventually
into foreign waters. Something sinister is going on, and the deeper they
push, the more Gage fears they've only discovered the tip of the
"The third book in Pettrey's Alaskan Courage series
ratchets up the action and suspense. It's difficult to stop yourself
from peeking ahead to the end, but the ride is worth the anxiety." --RT Book Reviews
Pettrey has delivered another incredibly compelling adventure in
Alaska. STRANDED is full of suspense, beautiful rugged wilderness and
white-water rapids, and a heartfelt romance. I loved catching up with
the McKenna family." - Dee Henderson, New York Times bestselling author
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
In real life, Dani Pettrey is a wife, homeschooling mom and author.
She feels blessed to write inspirational romantic suspense because it
incorporates so many things she loves–the thrill of adventure,
nail-biting suspense, the deepening of one’s faith and plenty of
romance. She’s a huge fan of dark chocolate, is always in search of the
best iced mocha and her dream is to one day own a little cottage on a
remote stretch of beach. She and her husband reside in Maryland with
their two teenage daughters.
Just in case you’re curious…The real Dani does love traveling. She’s
been to some amazing places (Greece, Hawaii, the Keys) and there are
many more she hopes to visit in the future.
And while she’s not quite up to sky-diving, cave diving or
heli-skiing (too high, too enclosed, too cold!) she and her family love
hiking, canoeing, wave jumping and a ton of other outdoor adventures a
little further down on the risk scale.
