"Grace is a spunky, independent, nature girl who doesn't need a boy to save her. With wilderness survival, a juicy love triangle, and more twists and turns than a roller coaster, this fast-paced novel had me holding my breath until the very last page--and still begging for more!" - Kimberly Derting (author of the popular Body Finder series)
Johannes has done a marvelous job of creating a suspense-filled mystery with surprises that keep you guessing all the way to the end. Untraceable is a thoroughly engrossing and riveting page-turner."- IndieReader
"This story is action-packed and very funny in some parts. There is even a bit of young romance...There is a strong message of wildlife conservation, so it is somewhat educational in that aspect." - Reviewed by Molly Burkemper for "Readers Favorite"
2009 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Quarterfinalist (under the original title of Grace Under Fire) - Judges Reviews:
"This story starts out with a bang...it reads like the young woman were narrating it to a friend, and had the ring of a young person's style and intensity. Original in premise and style, and good use of background...Good story!" - Sue Grafton, author of bestselling Kinsey Milhone series
"This murder mystery .. moves along at a brisk clip, and it feels as if we already have some important clues. We look forward to seeing what's in the case file and what Grace and her motorbike, Luci, will be up to next." - Sue Monk Kidd, author of Secret Life of Bees
From the Author
When I started this series, I had no idea if it would ever see the light of day. I needed to continue publishing books in the Nature of Grace series with the hope of making a difference in this world.
Uncontrollable touches on the plight of the red wolf. These animals once roamed freely, but are now on the verge of being extinct with the majority being kept in captivity. The idea came to me when I read an article about the gray wolves being released in Colorado. However, no matter how many they released, the numbers in Colorado remained low. I always wondered if people were silently killing the wolves for unknown reasons.
Uncontrollable is my way of shedding a ray of light on a problem we don't know much about. The plight of the red wolf is very real. They have a hard time living in the wild, yet I can't imagine a world where they always have to live in captivity.
With this book, I hope to create awareness around their story and struggles.
Just as in Untraceable, this book is still thrilling and mysterious with a strong girl character, two hot boys, and some great kissing. :) But in the end, my purpose is to inform.
I hope you like reading Uncontrollable as much as the first. If you find yourself bothered or angry with some of the abuse to wolves in this book, please see my "Call to Action" section so you can find your own way of making a difference.
Thank you for spending your time reading Untraceable! It means a lot to me because I know there are a million or more books you could have chosen!
