Stranded by Dani Pettrey

I read this book in a weekend!  And I loved it!  Stranded is the 3rd book in the Alaskan Courage series and I was hesitant to read it since I had only read Book 1 in this series, but not Book 2.  Despite having skipped a book in the series, I was happy to discover that one could read this book without having read any of the previous ones! 

Darcy St. James is a adventure writer...meaning she writes stories on adventures sports, etc.  This career choice came after leaving the investigative reporter job that she felt conflicted with her faith.  But when her college friend and former undercover colleague Abby, who is working undercover as a chef on the Destiny cruise ship, contacts her regarding a lead she's following on the ship, Darcy finds herself stepping on board the ship as a journalist covering all the adventure excursions and activities the ship has to offer. But also has plans to help her friend with the information Abby has...although Abby never shows up for their scheduled meeting so she can catch Darcy on her findings.  She finds out later that someone has gone overboard and that her friend had also decided to quit her job on the ship.  Darcy wonders if the two could be related, and even if they aren't, it's not like Abby to walk away from a case she is following.  Darcy knows something is up and starts asking questions in hopes of finding her friend but no one is giving they are hiding something.  Could it be Abby they are hiding?  Darcy is determined to find out.

Dani Pettrey's book Stranded is a book chock-full of faith and mystery.  Her writing style is easy to follow and puts you right into the midst of the story as it unfolds.  I can't wait to read more of her books!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for this honest review.
