There are few things that make me happier than walking to my mailbox and finding a new book. I particularly enjoy it when the book isn’t available for purchase yet. This is probably because I have the patience of a fruit fly and I don’t like waiting for anything.

Right now, I’ve got four—that’s right—four books in my TBR (to-be-read) stack that fit this criteria. It’s like Christmas in August!

For today, let’s talk about the Alaskan Courage series written by Dani Pettrey—specifically, book three, Stranded, which releases on September 1 (but I’ve heard can already be found in some stores).

The Alaskan Courage series follows the adventures of the McKenna family—Cole, Gage, Reef, Kayden, and Piper. (Aren’t those great names!) 

The McKenna’s own and operate Last Frontier Adventures in Yancey, Alaska. When they aren’t helping tourists enjoy the vast beauty of the Alaskan frontier, they serve their community as volunteers on the search and rescue team.

We met Cole and his long lost love, Bailey, in Book 1, Submerged. Then we had the fun of watching the baby sister, Piper, fall in love with longtime family friend Deputy Sheriff Landon Grainger in Book 2, Shattered.

We also met Darcy St. James and watched her get under Gage McKenna’s skin in Shattered. Now, in Stranded, Gage and Darcy take center stage as they search for Darcy’s missing friend and uncover a sinister plot in the icy waters off the Alaskan coast.

And that’s all I’m going to tell you about the specifics. You know how I feel about spoilers. They are evil.

What I will tell you is…
(True confession…I read Stranded in one night. I couldn’t put it down).

These books make me happy. They have just enough suspense to keep me turning the pages and just enough romance to keep my heart fluttering. 

The McKenna’s are a great family. The siblings are as different as five siblings can be. Feisty, fun, flawed. You will love them.
I certainly do.


After you've read the books, you'll want to check out Dani's website. She's got some fun bios, playlists, and videos for each of the three books.

I actually try to resist reading your book reviews because you cost me a lot! Once again . . . I succumbed.

Sorry Marcia! Well, not really! :-) I forgot to say this in my post, but since you'll be buying a book anyway (LOL!)might as well by all three! They can stand alone, but I think you'll miss out if you don't read them in order. :-)
