Book Review: "Sabotaged"
In case I do, Sabotaged by Dani Pattrey is the fifth and final (for now, according to Pettrey--I love the gift of hope!) book in her Alaskan Courage series. Each book of the series focuses on one of the McKenna siblings, three brothers and two sisters who have been running a wilderness adventure business together in Alaska since their parents' deaths. These books tell the McKenna family's own matter-of-life-and-death adventure stories combined with happy touch of happily-ever-after romance.
Sabotaged is Reef's story. While working on the search and rescue team for the Iditarod race, Reef's somewhat tentative friend, Kirra, realizes her uncle, an experienced participant and former winner, has gone missing. When she sneaks out at night to go look for him, Reef follows her and tags along to keep her safe. What they learn when they find him leads them on a quest to save a cousin, Alaska's environment, and many innocent lives.
This was a story of trust. Reef, a fairly new Christian, had to practice his faith, determining to lean on God through every circumstance. Kirra, a disillusioned Christian, had to realize that the God who seemed to have abandoned her had been there all along. He had never left her; He never would.
I recommend this book, the whole series, in fact, to anyone who enjoys stories of heroic adventures, intriguing settings, sweet romances, and family loyalty. Thank you, Bethany House Publishers, for sending me a complimentary copy of Sabotaged in exchange for this honest review
