No Safe Haven

Jenna and Andi Tikaani-Gray are hoping for a fresh start. Though twelve year-old Andi has long struggled with a rare medical disorder, she and her mother have finally received good news from out-of-town specialists. It's news they desperately needed, especially after the recent death of Jenna's husband (Andi's dad) in a car accident.

But as they are flying home to Alaska, ready to begin again, the unthinkable happens. The pilot sabotages their small plane and crashes into Sultana, one of the most remote and dangerous mountains in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Even worse, a winter storm is headed their way along with someone who doesn't want to save them, but to kill them.

Only one man can keep them alive: Cole Maddox, the mysterious last-minute passenger who joined them on their flight. But trust doesn't come easy to Jenna or Andi√Ďand they both sense Cole is hiding something.

A relentless tale of survival and suspense unfolds, involving military technology designed by Jenna's late husband that some would do anything to possess.

Book Review

Wow!  Wow!  Wow!  Wow!   Wow!   I didn't know what was better than five stars so I decided to give it five WOWs that way if you didn't read any further in my review you would know how much I enjoyed this book.

The cover of the book states the fact that the mother and daughter who co-authored this book were featured on Extreme Home Makeover.    We don't really get a chance to watch EHM because we are at church, but I was curious about why they would have been a part of that show.     Reading the author information in the book revealed that Kayla, the daughter, has a very rare disorder called Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy (HSAN).    For as hard as that was to type and say, it was even more difficult to diagnose as only twenty children in the world have this.     What HSAN means is that her body cannot regulate her temperature and can't feel pain until it is overwhelmingly intense.

A daughter with HSAN is one of the characters in this book.    Since you have most likely never met anyone with this, it definitely brings aspects to the book that you can't expect.

However, this book isn't about a disease.   It is an ACTION, PACKED, INCREDIBLE ADVENTURE!    And that is just in the prologue.    It gets even more intense from there.

I am so thrilled to know that this is the first of three books in a series.   The next book, Race Against Time, is scheduled to come out in November.   I can't wait.
