Stranded (Alaskan Courage Book #3)

6 Sep


Stranded by Dani Pettrey

Stranded by Dani Pettrey released this week and it’s an adventure you don’t want to miss!  Read the exciting details below to find out how you can experience your own Alaskan adventure!


Reporter Darcy St. James knows something is wrong when her friend vanishes from her job on a cruise ship. Everyone else believes Abby simply left of her own accord, but something isn’t lining up, and Darcy knows the only way to find the truth is to put herself in Abby’s position.

Gage McKenna has taken a summer-long stint leading adventure excursions for the passengers of various cruise lines that dock in Alaska for a few days of sightseeing. He’s surprised to find Darcy onboard one of the ships, working undercover as a reporter.

Something sinister is going on, and the deeper they dig, the more they realize they’ve only discovered the tip of the iceberg.


Stranded is the third book in Dani Pettrey’s acclaimed Alaskan Courage series.   The McKennas are back and better than ever!

I love this family and their faith in God and in each other!  Gage and Darcy’s story has been begging to be told, and you certainly won’t be disappointed!  

Gage McKenna struggles with the heartache and loss he has experienced.  In letting go of his past, he is able to give himself to his future.  As a reporter, Darcy St. James won’t stop digging until the truth is revealed.  She and Gage work together to uncover something evil and sinister.  In doing so, they discover something beautiful!

Dani Pettrey and her Alaskan adventures keep getting better and better and Stranded is romantic suspense at its best!

    Great review!!! I can’t WAIT to read this book. I have had my eyes on it for quite some time, all I need is the money 🙂 From reading Shattered, I had a feeling this story would be about Gage and Darcy. They make such a beautiful couple!!
