Stranded by Dani Pettrey
From the publisher:
Darcy St. James returns to Alaska to join a journalist friend undercover on the trail of a big story. But when Darcy arrives, she finds her friend has disappeared. Troubled by the cruise ship's vague explanation, Darcy uses her cover as a travel reporter to investigate further.
The last person Gage McKenna expects to see during his summer aboard a cruise ship leading adventure excursions is Darcy. And in typical Darcy fashion, she's digging up more trouble.
He'd love to just forget her--but something won't let him. And he can't help but worry about her 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 iceberg.
This is the third book in the Alaskan Courage series by Dani Pettrey, but it can be read as a stand-alone. I have not read any other books in the series and I was still able to really enjoy this book. However, I think that based on reading this book, you will want to start with book one because you will really enjoy each book!
On the back cover a reviewer compared Dani Pettrey to Dee Henderson. I have to admit that I agree with that. Dani Pettrey had suspense and romance woven in so that you were on the edge of your seat reading as fast as you could to see what happened next.
There was also spiritual depth to the book that I greatly appreciated While there was romance and drama a good portion of the drama and pain revolved around making the decision to surrender to Christ and accept Him as a personal Savior.
I am glad I read this book and will definitely plan to read the rest of this series soon!
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
