Finally Returned Home, Reef McKeena
Finds His Beloved Alaska Facing Its Greatest Threat
Growing up, goody-two-shoes Kirra Jacobs and troublemaker Reef McKenna were always at odds. Now, working together as search-and-rescue for Alaska's arduous Iditarod race, a growing attraction seems to be forcing aside old arguments. Then Reef catches Kirra sneaking from camp in the middle of the night.
Kirra's uncle, a musher in the race, has disappeared. Kirra and Reef quickly track the man, but what they discover is harrowing: Frank's daughter has been kidnapped. Kirra and Reef, along with the entire McKenna family, are thrown into a race to stop a shadowy villain who is not only threatening a girl's life--but appears willing to unleash one of the largest disasters Alaska has ever seen.

The McKenna family saga comes to a roaring finale as former troublemaker Reef joins his siblings in volunteering for the Iditarod search-and-rescue team. Surprised to see his childhood friend Kirra Jacobs on the team as well, he soon finds himself paired with her on a dangerous high-stakes rescue: Kirra's uncle Frank, an experienced musher, has disappeared from the race course. But Frank is in more trouble than they first realize, and Reef and Kirra are forced to chase clues up and down the Alaskan coast and neutralize unknown foes, who are using Frank for their own destructive purposes. The pair's harrowing adventures uncover old hurts and carve new spiritual paths.
