No Safe Haven
NO SAFE HAVEN
A year after the devastating death of their husband and father in a terrible car accident, Jenna and Andie Tikaani-Gray are hoping for a fresh start. Andie, who has always struggled with a rare medical disorder, has finally received good news, from out-of-town specialists. News they so desperately needed. But as they are flying home to Alaska, ready to begin again, the unthinkable happens. The pilot sabotages their small plane. They crash in the worst place possible: Sultana, one of the most remote and dangerous mountains in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Now, a winter storm is headed their way -- along with someone who doesn't want to save them, but 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 Andie. Besides, they both sense Cole is hiding something. An important missing piece in a dangerous -- maybe even lethal -- puzzle...
The authors draw on actual, real-life experiences -- no Kimberley and Kayla have never crashed into an Alaskan mountain, at least I hope not! But Kayla does have the same rare condition that Andie has and they have made it a key component of the plot which revs up the action and the angst. Fascinating stuff.
Told in three voices, Kayla (who was twelve at the time of writing) writes Andie's POV in first person while Kimberley covers Jenna's and Cole's. With tons of suspense and lots of action, this wilderness survival story will keep you reading right to the very end.
