In The Shadow of Denali by Tracie Peterson
Once again award winning authors Tracie Peterson and KimberleyWoodhouse have written a book that is rich in history of Alaska, intriguing and suspenseful and characters that draw you into the plot.
Here is Tracie's description:
"Cassidy Ivanoff and her father, John, work at the new and prestigious Curry Hotel outside Mt. McKinley. While John will be expedition and wilderness exploration guide for the wealthy tourists, Cassidy has signed on as a cook’s assistant. Both are busy as the hotel prepares to welcome the president of the United States on his way to drive in the golden spike to officially complete the railroad. Allan Brennan travels to the Curry Hotel to be an apprentice of a seasoned Alaska mountain guide. Ever since his father’s death climbing Mt. McKinley, he’s worked to earn enough money to make the trek to the Alaska territory himself. His father’s partner blames their guide for the death of his father, but Allan wants to find the truth for himself. He finds an unlikely ally in Cassidy, and as the two begin to look into the mystery, they suddenly find that things are much less clear, and much more dangerous, than either could ever imagine." You all know that I love Alaska and have seen Denali, so this book was a winner for me from the get go. I would rate it 10 of 10. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. Bethany House has provided me this book; all opinions are my own and I received no compensation for my review. If you love Historical Fiction look for this new book-you won't be disappointed. Noreen
