Overview
Eager Fans Await Bestselling Author Dani Pettrey's Latest Romantic Suspense

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.

Publishers Description
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.
"The third book in Pettrey's Alaskan Courage series ratchets up the action and suspense. It's difficult to stop yourself from peeking ahead to the end, but the ride is worth the anxiety." --"RT Book Reviews
""Dani Pettrey has delivered another incredibly compelling adventure in Alaska. STRANDED is full of suspense, beautiful rugged wilderness and white-water rapids, and a heartfelt romance. I loved catching up with the McKenna family." - Dee Henderson, New York Times bestselling author

Reviews - What do customers think about Stranded (Alaskan Courage V3) ?

Alaskan Courage, Book 3  Jul 7, 2015
Stranded is the third book in the Alaskan Courage series. I love this romantic suspense series, and enjoyed the third book as much as the first two. Although I’d recommend you read the books in order for the most enjoyment, this one has enough action and excitement to stand on its own. Each book focuses on one member of the McKenna family. Stranded features Gage, whose romantic interest is Darcy St. James. Gage and Darcy already have some history from the previous book, where they had bid each other farewell and gone their separate ways—at least by outward appearance.

The author writes in such a way that as a reader, I felt like I was right there in the story. I love books like this one, where I don’t feel like I’m just an observer, but I feel as if I’m right there in the midst of the action, heartache, or excitement of the current moment. Stranded pulls the reader swiftly through a myriad of emotions and situations.

The faith element in this novel is a major part of the plot, and should give Christian readers an opportunity to ponder our own love and commitment to our friends. Do we really have the heart that Darcy has for her friend, Abby? Although, Darcy does tend to get on my nerves somewhat with her penchant for following her gut instincts, she is certainly focused and driven toward her goals, one of which is seeing Abby become a follower of Jesus. Gage, also, has not made a commitment to Christ, so we again see him battling and trying to come to terms with his past.

There are some great sub-plots, which add interest to the story and give readers an opportunity to know the characters on a deeper level. I love this type of family series, where each book allows the reader to become better acquainted with various members of the core group of characters. I’m really looking forward to reading the fourth book. If you enjoy romantic suspense and family sagas, why don’t you give this series a try? I think you will be very happy with the Alaskan Courage series.
 
Keeps you guessing  Nov 24, 2013
This is the third book in a series. I really enjoyed the first two and was very excited to read Stranded.

This book has a great plot and characters. It was great catching up with the McKenna family and seeing how they were doing. Darcy St. James showed up in book two and was a spunky character I really enjoyed.

Dani wove a suspenseful story and had me wondering how were the bad guys and who were the good guys. I just wasn't sure who I could trust.

For whatever reason, I didn't find myself flipping (or tapping on my e-book) the pages as fast as I did with the first two books. As I said it was a very good story but it didn't give me the heart pumping, nail-biting read I have come to expect from the first two books.

If you pick this book up first, don't worry, you won't feel lost if you haven't read the others. Although you will understand the other characters better if you have read the first to books (Submerged and Shattered).

If you enjoy romantic suspense I think you will like Stranded. So give it a chance and grab your own copy.

An ebook of this book was given to me by the publisher through NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
 
Outstanding new autor to me  Oct 28, 2013
Stranded, Alaskan Courage Book Three by Dani Pettrey
Darcy St James returns to Alaska and a job she gave up to help out her friend and former coworker Abby. They are former partners as investigation journalists. Abby has stumbled upon a big case and needs Darcy’s help but when she goes to help Abby has disappeared from the cruise ship. The last person Darcy expects to meet is Gage McKenna. When she last left Alaska she left a part of her heart and never expected to see Gage again. Together they face danger and fight for their lives. This is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading by the author Dani Pettrey and the first in this series, I find it to be well written. It is a fast paced book that grabs and holds your attention. I had a hard time putting it down. Although it is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone, I had no problem following. I give this outstanding book five stars and can not wait to learn all about the rest of the McKenna’s in the first two books. This author is sure to find her way to my favorites. I want to thank the author Dani Pettrey and publisher for bringing good clean Christian books like this one to readers like me.
 
STRANDED by Dani Pettrey  Sep 29, 2013
Stranded by Dani Pettrey*****

Stranded is book three in the Alaskan Courage Series.

Gage McKenna and Darcy St.James met in the previous book, Shattered, book two of the Alaskan Courage Series. Their story continues in Stranded.

Darcy had given up undercover investigation journalism with her partner Abby three years ago and is now a journalist reporting on sports events. She gets an urgent, fearful-sounding call from Abby requesting Darcy's help in her current undercover investigation on the cruise ship Bering. She has learned something very dangerous and could be dangerous for her as well. They plan to meet once Darcy is aboard the ship so Abby can fill her in on what she has learned, but Abby never shows for the meeting, it seems she has gone missing. Now Darcy must learn what happened to her friend and what she was investigating.

Gage and his team from his family owned business, the Last Frontier Adventures, joins the crew of the Bering to provide passenger excursions at each of the ships stops along the Alaskan coast. He doesn't know that Darcy is on board-yet. At first he is not happy about Darcy being aboard and that she will be joining them on the excursions for her articles. Darcy finally confides in Gage the reason she is aboard, only now she has to find her missing friend and could use some help. Gage is not inclined to help but soon finds that things aboard the ship are not as they seem, even dangerous.

As each day passes and more is learned about possible activities aboard the ship Darcy and Gage find themselves uncovering shocking information, shocking and dangerous. Darcy continues pushing to find the answers to what happened to Abby and finds herself in danger as well. Can Gage keep her safe or will she disappear too? Will he get a chance to tell her how he feels about her before it is too late?

Stranded is full of adventure, suspense, hints/clues, romance, faith and so much more. It captured me from the first page to the last, making it hard to put down as I wanted to finish it. It had me wanting to shake those people with evil intent, smile at other places and even tearful at times. I loved the way the characters in the story came to life on the pages and captured my heart, keeping me on the edge of my seat guessing who the “bad” guys were and if they would be caught in time. Enjoyed learning more about the McKenna family, their struggles and joys, their strong faith and love of family. Dani surely is a masterful story teller. I can't wait til the next book in the series comes out, I know it will be just as captivating as the first three. Another 5-star book Dani!!

Dani Pettrey has another winner in Stranded!  Sep 27, 2013
I loved the first two books in the Alaskan Courage series so I was really looking forward to Stranded. It didn't disappoint at all! Dani Pettrey continues the danger, romance, adventure, and faith from the previous books.

Dealing with themes a bit darker than the previous books, Stranded is a little edgier but only in the best of ways.

Darcy is trying her best. She used to be an investigative reporter but after awhile she just couldn't balance it and her faith, so she quit. Now her friend, Abby, needs her help so Darcy goes back undercover just this once for her friend. Darcy also has another secret, a problem really, she is terrified of water. Just how is she supposed to be an adventure reporter on kayaking trips and stay off the water?
Our hero, Gage, has his own suitcase of issues. His heart was broken by an ambitious woman several years ago and now he, not only distrusts Darcy, but also jumps to conclusions about her motives. He also has a problem with her God. How could a loving God allow all the tragedy? He just isn't buying it.
Both of them, each wounded in their own way, have to work together to solve the sinister goings-on. Will they make it in time? Will Gage find the faith, in God and Darcy, that he needs? Will Darcy fail yet again, will she figure out what is really important to her?

This book tugs at the emotions and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. I just couldn't put it down until I absolutely had to. I love suspense stories and stories about Alaska, Stranded, and the rest of this series, are the best of both. Dani Pettrey pulls her readers into the story until they are nearly a part of themselves.

Don't miss the third book in the Alaskan Courage series by Dani Pettrey. Stranded is a definite keeper for any bookshelf!

(I received this book from BethanyHouse in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.)
 
Book 3: Stranded  Sep 23, 2013
Shattered and Submerged are the titles of the first two novels in this action-packed, suspense-filled thriller series written by Dani Pettrey. Some might conclude the later novels would be boring or the story thin, but nothing could be further from the truth! Here, the McKenna family is once again running their adventure business in Alaska. Gage’s heart was broken years ago by the loss of his son and more. Then, Darcy St. James enters the area and Gage’s life starts to get interesting. However, progress can only happen if Gage lets go of his anger toward God, turns to the Lord and allows his heart to love again.
While the McKenna family works, plays and worships together, they each have unique personalities that blend well to make life interesting. Abby is Darcy’s best friend from her past who calls and asks her to join her on a cruise in Alaska because of something Abby has discovered. While Darcy loves writing, even though she has left undercover reporting, she finds the cry for help one she cannot resist. As Darcy uncovers more information, what comes to light is far more than first perceived in the investigation. The danger, risks and clues increase exponentially, bringing characters face to face with where their walk with the Lord is and Who is responsible for salvation.
Since I began reading this series, there has always been anticipation for a possible sequel to be published. The suspense, romance, faith, thrills and chills that are some of the elements in the book kept me up late each time I began a book. Alaska has always held my interest and someday I hope to visit the area. With the scenes described in the writing, my heart really desires to see the land and meet the people. The characters are in many ways representative of people I have known in various places with their seeking Him, returning to Him or coming to Him. The joy of seeing faith, scripture and praying characters makes the novel rich in meaning.
All I can say is read all three of the novels in order to gain the richness of the plot that begins in Shattered, continues in Submerged and now resides in Stranded. I think readers will enjoy reading any of them without reading the others, but for me it was a richer experience since starting at the beginning. I sure wonder what the author is going to do next. I would be ecstatic to read another novel in the Alaskan Courage series. Don’t miss the fun!
My rating is 5+ stars!
 
Suspense, Mystery, Relationships and Faith...At Its Best!  Sep 20, 2013
Stranded is the third book in Pettrey's Alaskan Courage series. Each book in the series tells the story of a different McKenna sibling. Pettrey's books, while not being "preachy", clearly and honestly tell of each sibling's unique struggle and growth in their faith. Stranded tells Gage's story. His is a story full of adventure, suspense, mystery and relationships. I was encouraged by Darcy's faith in the midst of very trying circumstances and how her fear didn't overcome her faith. I have fallen in love with the McKenna family. Pettrey does an exceptional job of continuing the McKenna's story from one book to the next without re-telling too much of the previous story. The book could be read as a stand alone novel, but I would recommend catching up with Submerged and Shattered, the previous two books in the series, in order to experience the depth of the McKenna's story. This series is most certainly taking its place on my keeper shelf!
 
Favorite of the series so far  Sep 12, 2013
Stranded has so many twists to the storyline that my head is still spinning. Dani Pettrey just keeps writing better and better. I have to say that this is my favorite of the series so far. I can't wait to read Silenced when it releases. I Highly Recommend this novel.
 
Reviews From A Man's Perspective  Sep 7, 2013
This is the third book in the popular "Alaskan Courage" series by Dani Pettrey. The series follows the adventures of the McKenna Clan and their outdoor adventures company. Here's Dani talking about the first couple of books in the series, "Shattered" and "Submerged".


It's been months since Darcy St. James has heard from Gage McKenna, and she's sure that whatever they may have had at the time, is long gone. Darcy has been asked to meet with her old friend and investigative reporter on an Alaskan Cruise because she has discovered something that she need's Darcy's help with.. Upon arriving on the cruise, though, after a short meeting with her, her friend disappears. Gage has been trying to put Darcy out of his mind, so he's agreed to help his family with a new adventure excursion partnership with the cruise line. Little do either one of them know that the other will be on the same cruise line. After the initial awkwardness, Gage finds out what Darcy is really doing on the ship and what her plans are to get to the bottom of her friends disappearance. The past comes up to haunt Darcy as the painful discussions between Gage and herself are revisited. What happened to her friend? What is happening on the cruise line? Is there more to it then what's on the surface? Can Gage and Darcy work through their differences? You will be able to tell me all those answers after you BUY THE BOOK!


Dani proves once again that she is one of the best suspense story-tellers we have in the Christian Fiction marketplace right now. The way she not only weaves the story line through her current book, but also by the the way that story becomes fluid through the entire series. The writing is just plain enjoyable and the interaction between characters is believable. It is encouraging to see that she writes of characters that have flaws and moral dilemmas, but that through His grace they are able to overcome.


Is this a "guy's book"? Hands down this is everything that a guy would enjoy reading. The outdoor excursions that the McKenna's take the cruise passengers on is full of suspense as is the overall story. This is one book, the whole series, that would be enjoyed by anyone picking it up.
 
Stranded by Dani Pettrey Alaskan Courage Series, Book 3  Sep 2, 2013
Do you remember the investigative reporter, Darcy St. James from Shattered? Well she's back in book three of the series. She has come to help her friend Abby investigate some mysterious things that have been happening with the cruise ship line.

Darcy is excited to be back in Alaska. It has been five months since she last saw Gage McKenna. No emails, no calls, no nothing! She thought by now she would hear from him. Unbeknownst to Darcy, Gage is spending the summer working on the same cruise ship that her friend Abby is. That would be a happy coincidence except that when Darcy gets there Abby is suddenly missing.

The attraction between Darcy and Gage is still there, but her missing friend Abby takes precedence. If you enjoyed the mystery and suspense mixed with the romantic conflict from the first two books in this series you are definitely going to enjoy this installment.

The Alaskan Courage series just continues to get better. Ms. Pettrey has really hit her stride with this third book in the series. Nothing has slowed down, in fact I thought the tension both stressful situation related and romantic interest related was ratcheted up a notch with this one. For me it was an extremely fast read that left me anticipating the release of the next book in the series. The fourth book will be called Silenced and it is scheduled to be released next summer.

A book was provided to facilitate the review.
 
A Thrilling Addition to the Alaskan Courage Series!  Aug 24, 2013
Another thrilling addition to the Alaskan Courage series! Dani Pettrey has once again crafted an intense ride full of suspense, danger and sizzling attraction. If you haven't read Submerged and Shattered, stop right now and read those books! They set the stage for this exciting series. Shattered is a definite must read as Gage McKenna and Darcy St. James meet in that book and much about their relationship in Stranded is grounded by a knowledge of what they went through together in Shattered.

Darcy St. James is an adventure reporter who in this novel is supposed to help a friend with some undercover work aboard a cruise ship. The problem is, her friend has gone missing. Nobody seems to care, except Darcy. Enter Gage McKenna. He ends up on board the ship as the adventure activities guide. The attraction they both felt from five months prior is still alive and well for both Darcy and Gage. Will they act on that attraction or will events from both of their pasts interfere and keep the two from developing a relationship? What has become of Darcy's friend? Was there an accident? Was it foul play?

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and had a hard time setting the book down! This series is one I will read time and again.

I received a complimentary copy of Stranded from the author and publisher in exchange for my honest opinion, which I have given.
