Sabotaged - new book by Dani Pettrey

I've read the whole series and enjoyed every book!  Sabotaged is the fifth book in the Alaskan Courage series.  It was great to see Reef get his own book!!  I was surprised by a few basic grammatical errors, not a big deal, but hopefully these will be corrected before the final publish.  I like how Dani Pettrey writes with a mix of romance and suspense, she has kept it up through the whole series.

I recommend starting at the beginning of the series rather than jumping into this book.  There isn't much "catch-up" or summarizing of the characters so you might be lost if you haven't read at least one of the previous books.  In Sabotaged, there is an update on all of the characters so read to find out who might or might not be engaged/pregnant.

Do you know what the Iditarod is?  If not, you'll be lost.  "The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is an annual long-distance sled dog race run in early March from Anchorage to Nome.  Mushers and a team of 16 dogs, of which at least 6 must be on the towline at the finish line, cover the distance in 9-15 days or more." - Wikipedia

Slight spoiler alert, but from the Acknowledgments page it looks like the Alaskan Courage series is now complete.  Hopefully, Dani Pettrey's next book (and new series) will be out soon!

My previous reviews for this series are Submerged, Shattered, Stranded, and Silenced.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Um, I really haven't forgotten that I have a blog but other things have been happening in my life.  I wanted to post and say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year but that didn't happen, sorry.  So, Happy Valentine's Day!

I had my endo appointment today and my a1C was surprisingly the same as last time.  I don't know how b/c my blood sugar numbers have been high lately due to traveling and guess bolusing and temperature changes and blah blah blah.  But soon it will be Valentine's Day!  Then I get to work on my diet and exercise to work on losing weight, ugh!
