There is only one bad thing about Dani Pettrey's conclusion to her Alaskan Courage series -- and that is the fact that it's the conclusion! Sabotaged is a great wrap-up to the series, but I hate for my time with the McKenna family to end.
As with each of the first four books, this story is filled with faith, suspense, and romance, while focusing primarily on one of the McKenna siblings. This time the main characters are the youngest McKenna brother, Reef, and his search-and-rescue partner Kirra Jacobs.
While working as part of a team involved with the annual Iditarod race, Reef and Kirra are thrown into a complicated, life-and-death mystery. Along the way, they both deal with issues of faith and healing as they learn more about each other and about their relationships with God. As you can expect from Dani, the McKennas and their friends and partners face a multitude of dangers in the frozen wilds of Alaska.
I highly recommend Sabotaged and the entire Alaskan Courage series to fans of great Christian romantic suspense.
Thanks to Dani and Bethany House for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
