Growing up, goody-two-shoes Kirra Jacobs and troublemaker Reef McKenna were always at odds. Now paired together on Yancey's search-and-rescue canine unit, they begin to put aside old arguments as they come to see each other in a different light. Then a call comes in from the Iditarod that will push them to their limits. Kirra's uncle, a musher in the race, has disappeared. Kirra and Reef quickly track the man, but what they discover is harrowing. Frank's daughter has been kidnapped. In order to save her, the man must use his knowledge as a mechanical engineer to do the kidnapper's bidding or she will die. Kirra and Reef, along with the entire McKenna family, are thrown into a race to stop a shadowy villain who is not only threatening a girl's life, but appears willing to unleash one of the largest disasters Alaska has ever seen.

I loved this series. The characters and family dynamics were wonderful, the stories interesting and suspenseful and the romances beautiful, embracing true value over perfection. I loved that they all found God's redeeming grace.
I love learning about the MCKenna family. often brought a smile to my lips when the character would say or do something that felt like just the right thing for them. Thanks Ms. Pettry.
I loved the way the narrator kept the different voicings distinct. Like a play rather than a narrated book.
The storyline is enjoyable and finishes of a sweet family saga.
Some elements are too good to be true, but then again I like books for their escape from reality.
Not quite as strong as the previous ones in the series, but a solid and good story. The format was very similar to the others in the series. By this time in the series, it seemed like the author used a template. Even-so, there were some neat original aspects. I enjoyed the bits about Alaska and its culture and history.
1. We call them snow machines.
2. You need to have snowshoes when hiking in snow off the trail.
3. Hypothermia takes longer to get over than you allowed your characters.
4. The rustic buildings could not be wired for everything they said everywhere.
5. Your narrator was not able to change her voice enough to allow for different characters.
6. You did not capture the uniqueness of Alaska villages on the Iditarod trail.
7. The plot unbelievable.
8. Where was the pipeline and how could just one person be able to destroy it?
I thoroughly enjoyed these 5 books. I feel like I got to know the McKenna family really well. The characters were all so lovable and well developed. I wish I could read more about them. There was just the right mix of romance with mystery and adventure. I loved the
sweet Christian spirit that was incorporated as well. I felt good reading these stories and they were such fun! I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to read an exciting story with good clean fun and romance with faith promoting experiences. Thank you Dani Pettrey!
I am a glass artist and while I create, I listen to books. each creation has memory of one listened to. I love Jesus and my family.
Enjoyed this series very much. Sad it's ending. All the books kept my interest throughout series! Highly recommend the entire series.
