Stranded by Dani Pettrey (Review)

  • Series: Alaskan Courage (Book 3)
  • Paperback: 352 pages

  • Publisher: Bethany House Publishers (September 1, 2013)

  • ISBN-13: 978-0764209840

  • When her friend vanishes from a cruise ship, reporter Darcy St. James isn't satisfied with their explanation that she simply left her job of her own accord. Something isn't lining up, and Darcy believes the only way to find the truth is to put herself in Abby's position. Within days, Darcy learns her friend wasn't the only person to disappear mysteriously. Last summer, a woman vanished under almost identical circumstances.

    Gage McKenna has taken a summer-long stint leading adventure excursions for the passengers of various cruise lines that dock for a few days of sightseeing. He's surprised to find Darcy working aboard one of the ships, investigating a troubling report. Something sinister is going on and the deeper they dig the more Gage fears they've only discovered the tip of the iceberg.

    My Review:

    I loved this book. It is book three in the Alaskan Courage series. I recommend reading the books in order. If not there is some history between the characters especially Darcy and Gage that you will be missing. I enjoyed reading all the books. I read this book in one day. It captured my attention and I could not put it down. I loved Darcy and Gage from the previous books and was excited to see them get their own book. The whole McKenna family is pretty special. The author did a good job with the plot details and the mystery/suspense part. Abby and Darcy have known each other since college so when Abby calls and asks for help Darcy comes running. When she gets there she sees Abby briefly before she goes missing. Darcy is there as a journalist writing an article on the new adventure excursions the cruise line came up with to make customers happy. Gage and his family own a company that specializes in outdoor excursions. Circumstances throw Darcy and Gage back together again. The tension and attraction is still there. I loved how their relationship develops. In the end it takes the whole family to solve the mystery and stay alive. The conclusion was great and there were a few twists and turns. This is my favorite genre, Christian romantic suspense and this book does not disappoint. Highly Recommended. :)
