Once again Dani Pettrey delivers a gripping suspense story in Stranded, book three in her Alaskan Courage series. Darcy St. James, the McKenna family, and their friends and associates make a return visit as they work to solve a life-or-death mystery where time is of utmost importance.
Throughout the series, Dani has created characters you can care about as friends. Darcy, Gage, Kayden, Jake, and the others face real-life challenges and dangers. As the plot continues, secrets are revealed, relationships grow, and faith is tested while the characters learn more about each other and about themselves.
This is Dani Pettrey's first series, but she certainly doesn't write like a rookie. And I'm excited to know that she plans at least a couple more stories in the series. Stranded could be read as a stand-alone, but I think you will enjoy it more if you read Submerged and Shattered first. You can read my reviews of the first two books here: Submerged and Shattered.
Fans of great Christian suspense authors like Dee Henderson, Terri Blackstock, Irene Hanson, and Lynette Eason should have no problem adding Dani Pettrey to their list of favorites.
Thanks to Bethany House for providing a copy of Stranded in exchange for my honest review.
