Book Review: Sabotaged

Cover Art

From the Back:

Finally Returned Home, Reef McKeena
Finds His Beloved Alaska Facing Its Greatest Threat
Growing up, goody-two-shoes Kirra Jacobs and troublemaker Reef McKenna were always at odds. Now, working together as search-and-rescue for Alaska's arduous Iditarod race, a growing attraction seems to be forcing aside old arguments. Then Reef catches Kirra sneaking from camp in the middle of the night.

Kirra's uncle, a musher in the race, has disappeared. Kirra and Reef quickly track the man, but what they discover is harrowing: Frank's daughter has been kidnapped. Kirra and Reef, along with the entire McKenna family, are thrown into a race to stop a shadowy villain who is not only threatening a girl's life--but appears willing to unleash one of the largest disasters Alaska has ever seen.

Pettrey is the Winner of the 2014 Daphne du Maurier Award for Inspirational Romantic Suspense

My Reflections:

The finale to the Alaskan Courage series is in my opinion a highly recommended read. This book wraps up the story of the McKenna family perfectly. Although I would certainly start with book one and work your way down, this could be read as a stand alone as the author does a superb job of filling in back ground details as the book progresses.

This last book focuses on Reef McKenna, although he is not the youngest of the clan he is certainly lacking in maturity. His footloose and carefree attitude often are to his detriment.
Reef's childhood friend Kirra find themselves once again thrown together, this time to unravel the mystery of the disappearance of Kirra's cousin Meg.

Kirra's uncle, Frank is forced to give up his place in the annual Iditarod race he is competing in to enter a whole new race to find his missing daughter Meg. Is there more to this disappearance than meets the eye?

 Kirra and Reef just so happen to be volunteering at this very race and decide to team up and investigate the disappearance of Kirra's cousin. Along with the McKenna siblings they head into uncharted territories to try to save the day.

Along the way the main characters experience an attraction to each other, and must overcome past hurts that get in the way.

All in all this book is a winner, the action is intense and the romance is clean, albeit a little sappy, but just the same, sweetly endearing. The plot is intricate enough to keep you entertained and it ends with a great message of faith. I must say I was a little sad to say farewell to this family, but I am optimistic that Pettrey may incorporate some of the McKenna characters into her new series... One can only hope!

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review from Graf-Martin Communication. Thank you so much Graf-Martin!
