Alaskan Courage - Book One
by Dani Pettrey

Suspenseful right from the first page, this mystery hooks you immediately and continues to build until the dramatic end.  Woven into this fascinating mystery is a romantic storyline between the main characters.  The depth of the character and relational development between the two main characters is fabulous.  Underlying the character development is a strong Christian message which takes the main character from insecure to confident with the forgiveness of Christ.

Although I enjoyed this book, I found that there were many characters introduced very early and I had a hard time keeping them all straight.  Other than that this was a fast paced story that kept me engaged and turning pages as quickly as possible.  I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series!

About the Book:

A sabotaged plane. Two dead deep-water divers. One single clue.

Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey, Alaska, again. She has a past, and a reputation--and Yancey's a town that doesn't forget. She's returned only to bury a loved one killed in the plane crash, but then dark evidence emerges and Bailey's own expertise becomes invaluable for the case.

Cole McKenna can face dangerous rescue dives. He can face the fear a murderer may be threatening his town. But facing the reality of Bailey's reappearance is a tougher challenge. She broke his heart... but doesn't seem to be the same girl who left Yancey ten years ago. And he's not the same guy she left behind.

Racing against the clock and a rising body count, Bailey and Cole must move beyond the hurts of their pasts to work together until the truth of what is hidden in the depths finally surfaces.
