Sabotaged by Dani Pettrey

Sabotaged is the fifth and final book in Dani Pettrey's Alaskan Courage series. I must say that I am truly saddened that this wonderful series has come to an end. Besides the wonderful life-like characters within each book, the reader is also introduced to the wonderful state of Alaska. For those of you who have yet to read any of Ms. Pettrey's books about the McKenna family you are truly missing out. All of them can be read alone but it is more fun reading them in order. The books in the series are Submerged, Shattered, Stranded, Silenced and now Sabotaged.

This book is Reef McKenna's story. He is the youngest of the McKenna siblings and he has finally come home to Alaska. In his youth, Reef was always getting into trouble but he is now all grown up and settled down in his ways. The female lead in this story is Kirra Jacobs, who just happened to be on the receiving end of some of Reef's antics in their youth. They are thrown together during the Iditarod race when Kirra's Uncle Frank doesn't report in during the race. Reef and Kirra go out looking for him and when they finally find him they learn that Frank's daughter, Meg, is being held hostage and demands have been made of Frank. Before they can learn more, Frank takes off and a mysterious man on a snowmobile shows up demanding to find out what Frank had told them. Reef and Kirra are able to flee but soon find themselves hiding in a cave for the night in temperatures well below zero. This is where the story truly begins. 

Ms. Pettrey has a wonderful talent of creating believable characters that come to life on the written page. Her way of showing the Alaskan wilderness is absolutely amazing and it becomes another major character in the book. 

I would highly recommend Sabotaged and the entire Alaskan Courage series to anyone who loves a good clean suspense novel packed with twists and turns and lots of adventure.

On a 5-Star scale - 5 HUGE Stars!!!!! I absolutely LOVED this book!

I would like to thank Amanda Dykes and Bethany House for my copy of Sabotaged. I received my copy for free in order to read it and give my honest review, which I have done.
