Sabotaged By Dani Pettrey

Finally Returned Home, Reef McKeenaFinds His Beloved Alaska Facing Its Greatest Threat
Growing up, goody-two-shoes Kirra Jacobs and troublemaker Reef McKenna were always at odds. Now, working together as search-and-rescue for Alaska's arduous Iditarod race, a growing attraction seems to be forcing aside old arguments. Then Reef catches Kirra sneaking from camp in the middle of the night. 
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. 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. 
Pettrey is the Winner of the 2014 Daphne du Maurier Award for Inspirational Romantic Suspense

Seems I've been waiting forever for the final installment in the Alaskan Courage Series. As with the previous 3, loved it! Pettrey has a way of writing suspense like I've never seen before. Her character development was well throughout and I loved following the McKenna family's adventures, sad to see it end really. This one follows the immature Reef and his old friend Kirra as they investigate the disappearance of Kirras family member. Once again, Pettrey keeps us on the edge of our seats as we turn the page to see what happens next. I couldn't put it down. Definitely recommend. Although this is part of a series the autor gives enough background information to read as a stand alone novel.

Blessings for the Morning: Prayerful Encouragement to Begin Your Day By Susie Larson

This beautiful devotional gift book is for readers who want to start their day with a reminder of God's love and purpose for them. So often we wake up worried about our to-do lists and responsibilities and need a reminder of how God feels about us and who we are in him. Several years ago Susie began posting daily blessings on Facebook, and since then thousands have responded and forwarded the blessings along to others.
The blessings take only moments to read, but are packed with biblical promise and perspective. Along with a blessing, each day's spread also includes a related Scripture to point readers back to God's timeless truth.



I just love everything about this book! So simple. Short scripture readings combined with a little blurb to get you thinking. Various topics that you can turn to, or just read a page a day and meditate on it. Beautiful plush hardcover and thick glossy pages. Definitely one I will turn to time and time again! Love the encouragement to begin each day fresh and new.
