Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:


When her friend vanishes from a cruise ship, reporter Darcy St. James isn't satisfied with their explanation that she simply left her job of her own accord. Something isn't lining up, and Darcy believes the only way to find the truth is to put herself in Abby's position. Within days, Darcy learns her friend wasn't the only person to disappear mysteriously. 


Last summer, a woman vanished under almost identical circumstances. 
Gage McKenna has taken a summer-long stint leading adventure excursions for the passengers of various cruise lines that dock for a few days of sightseeing. He's surprised to find Darcy working aboard one of the ships, investigating a troubling report. Something sinister is going on and the deeper they dig the more Gage fears they've only discovered the tip of the iceberg.


My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: Pettrey's series is pure gold. I keep thinking that there is no way I can love the next in the series as much as I did the previous one and then somehow I always end up loving the next one just as much.

This novel on Darcy and Gage was pure brilliance. I loved watching them find faith, love, and of course solving one heck of a mystery. Darcy has always had a knack for uncovering things and in this novel she definitely uncovers something that is maybe a little bit too big for her to handle. And Gage is just incredible. Watching their dynamics was one of my favorite parts of the series. 

This is a must-read as is every book in this series. Pettrey is certainly a new Christian fiction writer who I have my eyes on. 

So why 4 stars?  I adored this book. I felt like it dragged at times, but other than that it was amazing. Definitely recommended. 

In Summary: Pettrey's Alaskan Courage series is not one to miss and Stranded will leave you with bated breath until the very last page. 

Warnings/Side-notes: None.

The Wrap-up: I am falling in love with the series by Dani Pettrey and can't wait to read the next one. 

Love,

Danica Page
