A Farewell to the McKennas

Dani Pettrey
Alaskan Courage #5 (and final)

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 the fact that all of the siblings were involved again. In a lot of the other books the characters are a bit more isolated, but there was constant communication and teamwork in this one. It almost helped to solidify the idea that this was the last time we would get to have an adventure with them.

I found that I needed to refresh my memory. I could remember any of Piper’s name except for the P, or whether or not Reef was older than Piper or not.

The ending totally did justice to the series as a whole. There wasn’t anything disappointing about it, so no worries. The whole book was delicious, and another in a long line of successes. Highly recommended!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Enjoy Reading! (and don't forget to click on the cover to read an excerpt).
