Sabotaged by Dani Pettrey

The Iditarod race. A gruelling, race that demands everything from any person involved. With the isolated and rugged location, it offers the perfect back drop for all sorts of people to try many different things to see what they can get away with. And in Sabotaged by Dani Pettrey, one of the plots threaten not only people, but the beautiful Alaskan landscape as well.

Reef Mc Kenna and Kirra Jacobs have known each other since they were little kids. But, their extremely different personalities almost always clashed. Now, grown-up, they are working together on the search and rescue team for the Iditorod. When Kirra's uncle Frank, a musher in the race, fails to check in, they go our searching. They find Frank and he tells them that his daughter, Meg, has been kidnapped and he has to complete a task in order to save her life. Now, Kirra, Reef and Reef's entire family are working against the clock to find Meg and stop the people behind the plot before it is too late.

I read the first book in this series a few years back. This now is the fifth one, and I wish I had read the others as they had come out. This was another captivating read by Pettrey. It pulls you in from the beginning and doesn't lose your interest at all. While I would have liked a little bit more background for some the characters, overall, they were pretty well done. But the plot and the setting are really what make this book. I would definitely check out other books by this author.


I received this book free from BethanyHouse publishing in exchange for my honest review.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
