Untraceable by Elizabeth Goddard

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Untraceable. This is the second book in the Mountain Cove Series. I didn't see how Elizabeth could possibly top the first book in the series, Buried, but she managed it quite well. I have always been fascinated by Alaska but now I'm not sure I would want to visit there. I have always appreciated the men and women who volunteer to go out and put their own lives in jeopardy to search and rescue people in mortal danger. Elizabeth then weaves a tapestry of faith into the action to give them hope when there seems to be no way. I love that.

 In this book we revisit the Warren Siblings of the North Face Mountain Search and Rescue Team. Heidi Warren has had some difficult things happen in her life recently. She has pulled away from the team and hasn't been on a rescue for some time. Unfortunately there are several problems and she is forced to go out with her brother Cade and Isaiah Callahan. She is struggling with her relationship with Isaiah to whom she is drawn but he has some secrets and has pulled a way from her.

Isaiah Callahan has moved to Alaska, changed his name and is trying to start a new life but the secrets of his past has just followed him and is coming between the only woman he could spend his life with. He has no choice but to put distance between them but then they're thrown together in a rescue. Cade tells him he knows his secret and to stay away from his sister.

The team is called to a daring mission to rescue a crew of stranded hikers and an injured person. Upon arrival they find that there isn't a wounded hiker but a dead body. They are told he fell but on inspection they find he has been shot and that the four members left are thieves and are on the run. The leader takes their weapons, radios, and phones and force them to take them to the ice fields to catch a ride.

A journey of a team struggling to save the lives of thieves and murders, knowing that once they reached their destination they will lose their lives. They do what they are trained to do and pray that God will do the rest. A great adventure.
