Stranded (Alaskan Courage #3)

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.

Excerpt

He answered his cell on the third ring, irritated at the intrusion. “This better be important.”

“We’ve got a situation,” Jeremy said.

He stood and stalked away from the bed. “I thought you were handling the situation.” Isn’t that what Jeremy had promised—to take care of his mistake?

“I was,” Jeremy mumbled. “I am, but . . .”
“But?”
“We’ve hit a complication.”
There’s a shock. It was always something with Jeremy.

Why he’d trusted him to run things this long . . . That was his mistake. “What kind of complication?” He retrieved his whiskey glass from the wet bar.

“Someone sounded the man-overboard alarm.”
“Where are you?”
“There’s no need for you to come. Just tell me what to do.” “Obviously following orders isn’t your strong suit.” He finished his drink in a single draught, the golden liquid burning its way down his throat and spreading across his chest.

“But, boss . . .”

“Give me your coordinates. Now.” He kept his voice even, tight. No sense losing his temper until the matter at hand was resolved.

Jeremy gave up the coordinates.
 “I’ll see you soon.” He cut off the call.

Review

This is the third book in the Alaskan Courage series and while could be read on its own, I highly recommend reading the first two books to get a sense of the characters and who they are and what they are all about.  I did not read the first two books and felt like I was missing some history of the characters.  I like Darcy’s character, she wasn’t willing to give up on her friend Abby and wanted to know what in the world happened to her and why she disappeared.  Gage has his own issues and those are conflicting with what he feels for Darcy.  There was quite a few references to prayer, God/being saved and other similar religious undertones.  IF this sort of thing would bother you, don’t pick up the book.  It didn’t bother me and was interesting to see how the beliefs of the different characters impacted how they acted and how they were portrayed.  The book does have quite a bit of suspense and you really aren’t sure who the “bad” guys are and I think some will surprise you!

Overall we give it 3 1/2 paws.  If you like romantic suspense, I think you might like this book.
