Summary on back cover:

Growing up, goody-two-shoes Kirra Jacobs and troublemaker Reef McKenna were always at odds.

Now as they work search-and-rescue together for Alaska's arduous Iditarod race, a growing attraction seems to be forcing aside old argument. Then Reef catches Kirra sneaking form the camp in the middle of the night.

Kirra's uncle, a musher in the race, has disappeared. Kirra and Reef quickly track the man, but what they discover is harrowing. Frank's daughter has been kidnapped. Kirra and Reef, along with the entire McKenna family, are thrown into a race to stop a shadowy villain who is not only threatening a girl's life- but appears willing to unleash one of the largest disasters Alaska has ever seen.




This is the last book in the Alaskan Courage Series. So sad! I just want to keep reading about them forever. Ok, ok, enough with the sob story. This book follows the relationship between Reef and Kirra. They want to find where her uncle has disappeared to and why. Of course, they end up falling in love, in McKenna-style of course.


Where do I start? I wouldn’t say that this was my favorite book in this series but it was still amazing. It had all the McKenna’s in it, I just wish they were in it more. I can tell you that, at this time, there is no “bad book” from Dani Pettrey. Some you may like better than others but overall her writing, character development… is all very well done. I was never confused or uncertain about what was going on. The characters in this story were very well done, you can tell that she has put a lot of thought into each one of them. They all have unique personalities and even though there are a lot of them, they never “run” together. Of course, my favorite part is the end, when they’re all together. I was crying and laughing all at once! I will definitely be re-reading this series multiple times.


As you can probably tell, I would highly recommend this series. It’s something different and exciting, full of adventure, suspense, mystery and romance. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
