About the book:
Finally Returned Home, Reef McKeena
Finds 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.
I really enjoyed this action-packed story with a good dose of romance! It was fun to catch up with the McKennas again since I've read the last couple books of the series and gotten to know them all. Kirra and Reef were thrown together in the last book, Silenced, and I would definitely recommend reading that first since a good part of their story takes place then. The suspense was non-stop and the investigation interesting. There were some cute romantic moments. I really liked that the focus of this story was on getting through trials, not only with Kirra's cousin's kidnapping, but also with a horrible event she experienced a couple years ago that shook her faith in God and people. She's been struggling to heal and understand where God was in it all. I think that's something we all question at one time or another and we can really relate to. Why does God let bad things happen? Does He care? We're given strong Biblical truth in answer to that. This looks to be the last book in the series, but I'm excited to see what she has next. I recommend this book if you like romantic suspense!
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
