KatyTennesseeGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent final book in seriesAugust 18, 2015KatyTennesseeGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love this book and all the ones that came before it in the Alaskan Courage series. Im so sad to come to the end of the final book. I love the characters. This book focused on Kirra and Reef. Their story is very complex. Of course, if youve read the prior books, youve already met them and know that there is a puzzling mystery concerning Kirra. It is so heart-wrenching to finally learn her story. As we saw in Silenced, Reef is a changed man. In this book, can he finally come to trust his childhood nemesis?
Sabotaged is a very exciting and fast-moving novel. The plot is convoluted with twists and turns more than I could figure out or imagine. There is so much going on throughout the story. It is a true page turner. I would have liked to have read it all in one sitting, but had to get some sleep, so I regretfully put it down until the next evening.
What a fun challenge to read! If you like romantic suspense, do not miss this book and the rest of the series. If you like books about families, this series is amazing. The McKennas are a wonderful and interesting family. I highly recommend Sabotaged to people who enjoy Christian fiction. If you havent tried Christian fiction, but would like to do so, this would be a good series to try. Start with the first book, Submerged, and you will be hooked!
ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Suspenseful and EnticingMay 2, 2015ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sabotage by Dani Pettrey is the final book in the Alaskan Courage Series and is a suspenseful tale from start to finish. Although I had not read the first four books, I was able to follow along in the story easily enough.
Kirra Jacobs and Reef McKenna have known each other since childhood and although theyve never been great friends, they find themselves thrown together in an effort to save Kirras cousin, Meg, who has suddenly gone missing. Meg isnt exactly a goody two shoes, so tracking her down is challenging when it seems no one is taking them seriously in the matter. But Kirra knows something is wrong and shes determined to find Meg.
Kirras uncle Frank, (who is also Megs father) has gone missing as well in the middle of the Iditarod race. As one of the most experienced racers, it seems highly unlikely that Frank just lost course.
Entangled in a web of past secrets, hidden agendas and shady characters, Kirra and Reef trek across Alaska searching for Frank and Meg all the while dodging killers out to silence them.
Sabotage is a nail-biting story that will grip the reader from the very first page and keep you enthralled until the very end.
I received this book from Bethany Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion which Ive provided here.
TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Romance & suspense on the Iditarod trail!April 29, 2015TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Iditarod. What a magic word. And when you pair it with the name Dani Pettrey you have the winningest combination on the trail. If I hadn't already fallen in love with Dani Pettrey's suspense stories, and the McKenna family, I would have picked this book up solely based on the cover. I had been looking forward to this book since the cover and blurb were first revealed to fans. Believe me, it didn't disappoint.
Sabotaged was such a fun book to read. Not only was it my favorite genre and from a favorite author, but it also features my favorite sporting event of the year. It was so neat reading those oh-so-familiar checkpoints. And the suspense? Sabotaged is full of Dani's trademark adventure and romance. I found myself breathlessly turning pages as they edged closer and closer to probable disaster and the final showdown. If you've read any of the previous books in the Alaskan Courage series you will know how much of a nail-biter they can be.
Wonderful cast of characters, I really liked Reef and Kirra, with appearances from all of the McKenna clan. I'm just sorry that Sabotaged is the last book in the series, I really don't want to say goodbye. One of the things that really stood out to me is how people often don't, and won't, fit into the boxes we create for them. Just when you think you've really got them pegged, they surprise us. Past mistakes, thoughts, and attitudes, are just that, past.
Sabotaged is a wonderful tale of adventure and suspense set in the Alaskan bush during one of the toughest and most exciting races in the world. Iditarod!
mountainsAlberta CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic end to a great series!April 17, 2015mountainsAlberta CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sabotaged is the final book in the Alaskan Courage series and the tells of the final McKenna sibling to find love. And it was definitely Reef's time!
If you've been following the series you will probably agree that it was time for "bad boy" Reef to settle down. If you're new to the series, you might find a hard time understanding the full extent of the love story. However the plot of the story could probably stand alone, the cast of characters might feel overwhelming. So, I recommend reading more than one. If you are just starting out with the Alaskan Courage and you don't want to read all four previous stories, try starting with Shattered. It is book 2 but it introduces the kind of person that Reef is ... was. Love can change any heart.
My thoughts on this book are quick and painless today. I really enjoyed the story. The plot was fantastic and exciting. I enjoyed the ticking time bomb of the race ending equaling disaster. Then as each hour and day passed the suspense was ramped up further. The setting of the Iditarod was unique and fun. I have never read a story from that perspective. Overall I am filled praise for the final chapter of this family saga. A great read.
My only concerns are few and perhaps a little petty. I found a lot of repetition in the wording. I assumed it was because the couple drives, flies and traverses over a lot of ground in the short time of the story which made for a lot of "he held the door for her" kind of repetitive statements. Also the massive amount of travel made it hard to keep the setting straight and where each of the characters actually was.
As for the romance of the book, I really enjoyed the story of Reef and Kirra. It was nice to see Reef mature into a strong and capable partner for Kirra. He lost his 'black sheep' persona and was able to present himself as a great hero. Sometimes the slow brewing of a love story from characters who have know each other for a very long time is a deeper, more mature form of love story. I really liked it.
So, if you like adventure and fast paced suspense you will enjoy this story. If you like sweet romance with a strong faith element, then you will like Sabotaged.
Thanks to Bethany House and Dani Petrrey for a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I am not required to rate it positively.
AlaskamomAlaskaAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5SabotagedApril 7, 2015AlaskamomAlaskaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1I'm sad to say, I was very disappointed with this last book in the series. I live in Alaska and while I don't know the areas the author referred to in past books, this book was about places I do know and the "stage" was set very geographically incorrect & many parts of the story were physically impossible.
Too much of the story was not realistic - the author had Seward the wrong direction from Fairbanks, and other parts of the story had towns/establishments where none exist. In one part of the story the characters flew & drove between places in a matter of hours where it just is not possible. Small planes can't fly after dark - and in March we don't have enough daylight hours to fly small planes the distances being referenced (& they aren't places large planes can land). I was disappointed to "have" to force myself to finish the story in order to honestly review the book. It seems as if the story was written from the perspective of an internet researched AK, but not actually talking to anybody who lives here to know the unique idiosyncrasies of our state and how very wrong internet maps/directions are.
