Stranded by Dani Pettrey {Book Review}

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

imageDarcy St. James just wanted to help out a friend with an undercover story. She knew it sounded ‘big’, but had no idea that same friend would go missing without a trace mere hours after her arrival on the cruise ship. None of the staff on board the ship is aware that Darcy is really a reporter, and everything surrounding the disappearance leaves Darcy with so many questions to ask - and no concrete answers from anyone.

One of the last people Darcy expected to see on her undercover trip was Gage McKenna. His family has been hired to lead several of the excursions the cruise ship offers, and he is not happy to see Darcy on board the ship. He believes she is sticking her nose into something that isn’t a problem and hopes her digging doesn’t lead to a loss of business for the family.

Their past relationship of butting heads continues to get in the way, but the more time they spend together, the more suspicious the disappearance of her friend seems. Pieces of the mystery are not fitting together and more oddities keep popping up - some with harmful results. Fearing for Darcy’s safety, Gage and his family and friends attempt to help Darcy uncover the mysterious happenings onboard and off the cruise ship - but will they remain safe in the process?

My Thoughts on Stranded and Dani Pettrey

A good suspense book is hard to put down, and Stranded by Dani Pettrey is a book that falls into that category. Years ago, I began reading the O’Malley series by Dee Henderson and didn’t think that I would find another that equaled it in writing style and character development.

Thank you, Dani Pettrey for providing that series for me. {I’m sure it was just for me, a fellow homeschool mom - right?}.

Filled with suspense and an undercurrent of romance, Stranded {and the other books in the Alaskan Courage series} will keep readers engaged, glued to their books, and anxious for the next installment. Stranded can be read as a stand-alone novel, but you will want to dive into the small Alaskan town of Yancey and meet everyone there. Be sure to block off a chunk of time once the book arrives though. You won’t want to put it down!

You can pick up Stranded, book 3 in the Alaskan Adventure series by Dani Pettrey, from Amazon. While you’re there, you may also want to add Submerged and Shattered to your cart too - you’re going to want them {trust me}.
