Stranded by Dani Pettrey

*So I read this book and wrote this review ages ago and I thought I'd posted it but apparently I hadn't so here it is!
About the Book
When Her Friend Goes Missing,
Every Minute Counts
Darcy St. James returns to Alaska to join a journalist friend undercover on the trail of a big story. But when Darcy arrives, she finds her friend has disappeared. Troubled by the cruise ship's vague explanation, Darcy uses her cover as a travel reporter to investigate further.
The last person Gage McKenna expects to see during his summer aboard a cruise ship leading adventure excursions is Darcy. And in typical Darcy fashion, she's digging up more trouble.
He'd love to just forget her--but something won't let him. And he can't help but worry about her as they are heading into more remote regions of Alaska and eventually into foreign waters. Something sinister is going on, and the deeper they push, the more Gage fears they've only discovered the tip of the iceberg.

My Thoughts
Dani Pettrey has once again amazed me! I think she just gets better with each book! I made the mistake of starting this book late on a Saturday night when I had to get up early for church the next morning. I could have easily seen myself staying up three more hours to finish it if not for that fact! It was just that good from the first page! I went in planning to read one chapter and had to force myself to put it down after chapter 5!
After getting the beginning of Gage and Darcy's story in Shattered I was so excited to see how it would all play out and I was not disappointed! I loved the whole cruise ship setting and the mystery of what was going on kept me on my toes! I absolutely loved getting see more of most of the McKenna siblings and Landon though I wish Bailey and Cole were in it a bit more!
Gage was always the McKenna sibling that intrigued me the most with his gruff exterior hiding his brokenness and I loved seeing Darcy break through! Darcy was an awesome heroine with her faith and tenacity.

I loved every minute of this book and I highly recommend it though you should definitely read Submerged and Stranded first!
