Sabotaged: A Review

Back cover summary: 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.
My thoughts:
I loved the first three books in this series. I love the family dynamics, the well-developed characters, and the fast-paced adventure. The fourth book wasn't as amazing, but I still loved it.
This one was my least favorite. The romantic aspect seemed settled way too early in the book, and the action just didn't carry the book. I skimmed the last third of the book to find out the end.
I enjoyed the epilogue because I did enjoy all the characters in the series. They were intriguing, and the Alaskan setting was unique and added to the stories.
Overall, it's a good ending to a terrific series. I know it seems like I didn't like it, but I think that's just because the first few books were so fantastic that even though this book is good, it just didn't stand out like the others.
I received a copy in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.

Confessional Friday

Connecting with Leslie at for Confessional Friday

I confess I've lost count of how many mini Reese's I've eaten in the last week. I need Valentine's to be over, but then there's the Easter candy right after that. Maybe I can just avoid stores all together. That would help my budget too.

I confess I hate math and am dreading doing my taxes now that I have this author thing going on. I love everything about being an author except "selling" and math/taxes. It's worth it though.

I confess after years of hating stuff around my neck, I've become a fan of wearing one three out of four days so far this week.

I confess I only lasted four days with nail polish on my fingernails. The second one nail chips, it's over for me.

Boring, I know!
