Giveaway at Loraine Nunley's website: Alaskan Courage series by Dani Pettrey #BookGiveaway
Alaskan Courage series by Dani Pettrey

There are some series of books that just stick in the mind long after you have read them.  One of my favorite Christian suspense authors is Dee Henderson.  Her series about the O’Malley’s is one that holds a special spot on my shelves.  As a reader, these books captivated, thrilled and entertained me.  As a writer, I am humbled and in awe.  Someday, I want to write as well as that.

I was delighted to discover a new author who follows in those same footsteps – Dani Pettrey.  I was not surprised to learn that she had been mentored by Dee Henderson.  It shows in this series.  I will be posting my reviews of each book separately, so I will just say that if you are a fan of “edge of your seat” romantic suspense, then you will want to read this series.

  1. I can’t think of anything specific but I’ve always enjoyed reading real facts or history interspersed with the fiction in a book. Helps me visualize or put myself in the situation.

    1. I think you would really enjoy Dani’s Submerged, Gail. There were some neat facts about Russian history in it. Thanks for commenting and good luck!

  2. Support animal for the male lead in the book now I thought that is an interesting thing to add to a romance suspense.

  3. I love anything Alaska! And well written books rock! Would love to add them to my collection.

    I know that well done historical fiction will often drive me to explore non fictive books on a subject that peeks my curiousity.

    1. I agree Andrea. I love to have my interest peaked in a fiction work so that I need to learn more about the real thing. Good luck!

  4. I’m with Gail, I love learning historical facts intertwined in a fiction book. Makes for learning these lessons fun 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win the whole set of Dani’s books!

    1. You’re welcome Trixi. I didn’t like history in school, but I’ll bet if Dani was teaching that Russian history then, I would have paid more attention! Good luck!

  5. What a fantastic giveaway, Loraine! 🙂

    Something interesting I’ve read about in a romantic suspense story is what goes into making a bomb. (Explosive Alliance by Susan Sleeman, if you’re interested.) I love that we can learn all kinds of interesting information through reading fiction. 🙂

  6. hmmm… I do enjoy all the Russian history in Submerged! That will be my answer as I’m suddenly drawing a blank lol

    1. It’s hard to keep up with all the wonderful books out there, isn’t it Carrie? Thanks for commenting and good luck!

  7. I love knowledge, therefore a well researched book that I can learn from while enjoying a great story appeals to me most.

    1. I agree with you Lucy. I really appreciate the amount of research that these authors put into their suspense books. Thanks for commenting and good luck!

    1. Oh, you are in for a treat Amanda! This series would be a really good introduction for you. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

  8. What I find interesting is how vivid the details are about the place the book is set in. Such as Alaska where you can almost feel the chill of the frigid wind, or picture the beauty of a lake with crystal clear water. It us all in the way an author uses their words that help readers picture where the story is set. I also like the way they are able to describe FBI training with such precise information. Authors make books come alive by their intricate research which makes the story so intriguing.
    Thank you for the chance to read about more interesting places and the characters that come to life with words .

    1. So true Deana and there are so many wonderful writers out there to choose from. Did you know that there is an actual Writers Police Academy where authors can go to get in depth knowledge about police procedures and crime solving? Thanks for entering and good luck!

  9. I have to be careful with Romantic Suspense. I really enjoy them, but they can’t have serial killers. That just creeps me out too much. I haven’t read anything from Dani Pettrey, but I love Dee Henderson.

    1. If you love Dee (she’s such a great author, isn’t she?), then you are in for a treat with Dani’s books. Thanks for sharing and good luck!

      1. Thanks, Loraine. The reason I follow book blogs is to get recommendations on new authors or authors/books I wasn’t aware of. It’s hard to find the time to read everything I might want to, so recs help narrow the choices down. You are doing such a great job with your blog. Thanks, again, for the honest and unbiased book reviews so that we can make informed reading decisions.

        1. Oh Terrill, thanks so much for the feedback. I am really enjoying sharing my love of reading with other fellow authors and readers. Good luck!

  10. I think the most interesting thing about romantic suspense is the suspense it self. No i don’t waiting to find out something but i think its worth it! Thanks so much!

  11. Dani is a new-to-me author. I’ve read great reviews about this series. I would love to visit Alaska one day. Meanwhile reading this series will be the next best thing. Thank you for the giveaway. 🙂

  12. I love this series…I only read 1st 2 books in series and can’t wait to read the rest! Would be great to win them.

    1. Welcome Lisa. This is a really good series. Don’t forget to check out my reviews of each one (two have already posted and the other three will be coming soon). Good luck!

  13. I loved learning about the search and rescue that they did. And as part of that the rock climbing. In another series that I read I learned about coins. In another about the Witness Protection Program. There are just too many to mention.

    I love this series by Dani Pettrey, I find Alaska just so fascinating.

    1. That is so true Pamela, the amount of interesting things that these books have to offer… Wow. Thanks for commenting and good luck!

  14. What a wonderful giveaway! Such a great offer all 5 books! I have not read this series yet and I’d love to be able to read all the books.

    1. I am one of those people who like to have all of the books in a series before I start reading it. I was really glad I did that with this series Sally. Good luck!

  15. I really enjoy Christian romantic suspense, particularly Dee Henderson’s O’Malleys, military heroes, and Full Disclosure. I have read Submerged and would really like to have the whole series. In Full Disclosure Ann weaves a theory about a convicted criminal hiring a hit man then says, “If it’s not that, I’ve got nothing.” And of course she is right. Humor in the midst of solving a crime is very appealing to me.

    1. I so agree Charlyn. I love it when humor is mixed into the suspense. It just adds a special something I think. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

  16. I thought of Dani both times I was in Alaska, especially when I saw signs about moose not being allowed on a cable car.

  17. My favorite seems to be when there are two people on “opposite sides of the fence” – or a war –
    and end up falling for each other!

    1. Ohh that is a good story line isn’t it Megan? How are they going to get on the same page? Thanks for commenting and good luck!

  18. I would love to read this series. Thank you for the chance to win a set of these books.

  19. I have read stories about people in the witness protection program that are excellent

    1. I think those are interesting too Jan. To have to take on a whole new identity and leave people behind? Makes for good stories. Thanks for visiting and good luck!

    1. This is a really good series about Alaska Beth. I especially liked the sled dog racing that Dani wove into one of the books. Good luck!

  20. I’ve not yet read any of Dani’s books. I love the pictures I have seen of Alaska and the stories from others who have visited there and I also love suspense. This sounds like a great series to read.

    1. Oh it is Kathleen. Don’t forget to check out my reviews on it. Two reviews are already posted and the other three will be upcoming before the end of the giveaway. Thanks for entering and good luck!

  21. I havent read too many romantic suspense novels but I did read 2 of the Love Inspired ones lately and it was interesting to read where one of the criminals hid some stolen diamonds and how the two main characters who later became a couple had to figure out where they were hidden.

    1. That sounds interesting, Merry. I like having a mystery aspect in books where I can try to figure out the mystery before it is revealed. Thanks for sharing. Good luck!

  22. Great giveaway! What a prize!! I’ve liked learning about the military through books I’ve read. I also like undercover books, because I learn something from their cover. I always learn something when I read a book. That’s something I really enjoy.

    1. I like to learn new things as well Shannon and the military aspect of books holds a special place in my heart since I am married to a retired military man. Thanks for commenting and good luck!

  23. I don’t know if they are considered romantic suspense, but Sarah Sundin’s series about WWII intrigued me because my Dad was in WWII & I never knew a lot about what went on during that time period. I learned so much about how difficult it was to live with all of the rationing, and it made me very thankful!

    1. Sarah Sundin, another wonderful author. She does have some suspense in her books so we are counting it Sharon! I learned a lot about WWII from her books too. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

  24. I am recently reading romantic suspense and finding that I enjoy it. I have Submerged in my TBR ebook shelf, but I would be interested in reading the others in the series too.

  25. Alaskan Courage series by Dani Pettrey – Giveaway!” That is great. Even if I do have some of them.

  26. I don’t remember the names of the books but I’ve read a couple in a series about the FBI and law enforcement. I learned more about working in those fields.

    1. I heard DiAnn Mills speak about how she researched FBI techniques for her books and it was fascinating. Thanks Joan and good luck!

  27. I can’t think of anything right now, but these books look interesting and I would love to read them.

  28. Loraine, have I seen you over at Seekerville? If yes, between that and our shared love of Dee Henderson’s and Dani Pettrey’s books, I think we can be friends 🙂

    I like when authors incorporate real events or elements in their books. I just reread Dee Henderson’s True Honor for the tenth time (at least!) and I loved how she gently folded 9/11 into an already-written story so respectfully.

    Would love to win this series!!

    1. Hi Sarah! I have been over at Seekerville. There are such great resources there for authors. I would love to be friends!

      I completely agree with you about incorporating real events, that makes the stories more real if it is done right. Thanks for entering and good luck!

  29. Loraine, I thought I already commented but I can’t find my comment in the list. Regardless, I wanted to say thank you for the giveaway! Dani Pettrey is awesome, and definitely on par with Dee Henderson, as well as Lynette Eason and Irene Hannon 🙂

    Interesting in a romantic suspense book…hmm… How about the methods used to solve the crime? I also enjoy the hints of real events/whatnot incorporated into a fictional story, like Dee Henderson’s True Honor, which blended 9/11 into an already-written story to honor the victims and heroes involved.

    Can’t wait to see who wins!

    1. Of course, as soon as I post a comment in case the first one was only written in my imagination or got lost in cyberspace, I see the original one…oh well! 🙂

    2. I was a little behind on getting to approve comments so I apologize for that Sarah. Don’t worry though, your comment entry is all good.

  30. I have read about real life conspiracy thru the generations to wipe out inheriting genealogy.

  31. I learned more about PTSD. The way Becky Wade does very well in explaining this disorder in such a personal way with her hero of Jake Porter.

    1. I think that is a great topic to learn about Halita. Becky’s book is on my TBR list. Thanks for sharing and good luck!

  32. Hi! You are a New To Me Author- So looking forward to read your books and to become a fan for a very long time! It is amazing the details that go thru the books! Thank you for offering this to win! I love to win and share books with a lot of my friends who are Avid readers!

  33. I love learning things in books. Whether it’s history or how to dive for sunken treasure. I just love learning, and books make it fun.

    1. I completely agree Kathryn. I love to learn new things and books, in my opinion, are one of the best ways to do that. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

  34. Well, I like it when a romance between the two main character is lengthened throughout the book!!! 🙂

  35. This is one of my favorite series. Submerged was my first time reading Dani’s work. I was hooked from the very beginning of Submerged. I had a hard time waiting for the next books to come out. I have just finished reading Sabotaged and am sad that the series is done. I hope Dani writes about McKenna family again!

    1. I’m not a big fan of hiking and stuff but this series gave me insight into what fun it can be to do some of those things with friends/family and make new friends doing.them.

    2. I believe that Dani wrote a novella about the McKenna’s parents. If so, I definitely want to read that one. Thanks for commenting and good luck!

  36. When I read Submerged, I was thinking of the cold Alaskan waters. I have been out in those waters twice–once in a smaller fishing boat, and I have to say I was pretty terrified. Just thinking of the underwater rescues that the McKennas do is very chilling. Love these books!
