The McKenna siblings are back for the final book in Dani Pettrey’s Alaskan Courage Series. Reef McKenna and Kirra Jacobs are volunteering their Search and Rescue (SAR) skills during the Iditarod Race. When Kirra’s uncle doesn’t check in, she gets worried and goes looking for him. Reef won’t allow her to leave by herself and insists they go together. From the moment they find her uncle (well, even before that), the adventure begins. As Kirra and Reef, along with some of Reef’s family, search for Kirra’s kidnapped cousin. If they don’t find her by the end of the race, lives will be lost. As Reef and Kirra fly to several destinations they face not only the elements of the unforgiving Alaska terrain but also horrors from their past. And someone might be following them in an attempt to stop them from locating Meg.
Sabotaged is a fitting conclusion to this series. The entire family once again joins together to solve a mystery, putting all of their skills to use. I’ve been to Alaska once (my parents lived there for three years) and Pettrey describes the cold exactly as I remember it. The setting of the famous dogsled race allows readers to learn more about the beautiful state of Alaska and some of the fun stops along the Iditarod. Action, adventure, and lots of romance are Pettrey’s signature and she’s still going strong. The only disappointment is that this series is over, but the good news is this: she’s working on a new series.
Kindle version will be available January 27, 2015 but if you want to add the final to your book collection, you’ll have to wait until February 3, 2015 to buy the paperback in stores and online. But this book is worth the wait.
