Stranded

Dani Pettrey

From the back cover:

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 thoughts:

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 pages (or tapping the screen) early on in the book 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’ll like Stranded. So give it a chance and grab your own copy.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com, Deeper Shopping or Books-A-Million.

An ebook of this book was given to me by the publisher through NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
