The McKenna siblings return in Pettrey’s fourth Alaskan Courage novel, following Stranded (2013). Kayden McKenna has a passion for rock climbing and other outdoor adventures, but she fears letting anyone get truly close to her. After she discovers the body of a fellow climber, Kayden joins up with Jake Westin to investigate the murder, and they both fight growing feelings for each other as they search for clues to the killer’s identity and whereabouts. Jake’s troubles in Boston have followed him to Yancey, Alaska; then, just when they think they have solved the crime, events take a far more sinister turn. Now the two must work through their pasts and fears in order to survive. Pettrey keeps the stakes high for her characters and her readers, who, by now, know and love the whole McKenna clan and will be pushing for romance to bloom as the suspense mounts. Pettrey knows how exciting it is to see love unfurl in the midst of dangerous circumstances, and her latest work of inspirational romantic suspense delivers on that thrill. --Carolyn Richard
From the Back Cover
Jake Knew Something Was Wrong.
But He Never Guessed How Wrong.
A relaxing day of rock climbing takes a disturbing turn when Kayden McKenna's route brings her face-to-face with a dead climber. Is it a terrible accident or something darker? When the case is handed to overburdened sheriff Landon Grainger, he turns to Jake Westin for help. With Jake's past now revealed, he's ready to use his talent for investigation again--but he could never prepare for where the mystery will take him.
Kayden's climbing expertise soon leads her and Jake to the realization that the death was no accident. And worse, it seems the killer is onto them. When strange things begin happening in Yancey, Jake is terrified that once again his world may put someone he loves in danger. But the truth is far worse than he could ever imagine.

Jake is head-over heels in love with Kayden. Although Kayden feels the same about Jake now that she knows his secret, they don't have the courage to admit their true feelings. When they are forced to work together to solve a murder, only to discover Jakes past is somewhat linked to the odd events, and Kayden's life is in danger, their feelings are clear.
This book has it all, romance, chemestary, mystery, and two weddings. It's a true page turner. What it doesn't have is fluff. You jump straight into the story on the first page.
It also sets the intro for book five which apparently will focus on Reef and Kirra. I can't wait. But I will be sad because that will be the last of the McKenna's. I don't recall loving a family this much since Dee Henderson's O'Malley series.
While Kayden is out rock climbing she discovers a body. It is quickly discovered that the climber was murdered and didn’t die due to an accidental fall while climbing. With the abrupt resignation of the sheriff, Landon Grainger is promoted from deputy to temporary acting sheriff. Since he is overloaded with work he asks Jake to temporarily be deputized and work the murder case. Kayden is also asked for her climbing expertise to help Jake investigate. Both Jake and Kayden are secretly thrilled they will be working together as they both have realized their strong attachment to the other. They won’t tell each other how they feel because they can’t see a future together. As they investigate, their attraction and love only increase with the time spent in each other’s company.
Jake discovers he really enjoys being back on the force. He tells himself it is only temporary as God didn’t make him to be a cop because of his failure on his last case three years ago in Boston. That failure caused him to resign his job as detective and move to Alaska to start over. That case also cost him a lot more than his job. He knows he shouldn’t open his heart again to future hurt, but someone Kayden has snatched his heart without him being aware of it. He will do anything to keep her safe, which skills will come to the forefront as they encounter someone from his past who will stop at nothing to hurt Jake by hurting Kayden. Kayden must also admit to herself how she has cut herself off emotionally from her family and friends when her mother died. She is terrified of inheriting her mother’s rheumatoid arthritis and as a result is a health and exercise fanatic almost to the point of obsession because she needs to feel like she can control something about her life. Can she surrender this control to the One who is always in control? The One who always knows what is best for His children?
I have spent a lot of time with the McKenna family over the past week as I’ve read all four books over that time period. They have come to be like my own brothers and sisters. What a wonderful job their parents did, raising such strong Christian children. While strong Christians, they aren’t perfect. I can identify with their foibles and struggles, which makes them so easy to relate to. There is also a lot of action and suspense to enjoy as well. I can’t wait to read Reef’s story!
