Overview

His pulse quickened as they approached. He'd waited so long. Too long. He closed his eyes and reveled in the memory, which did not come as a gentle wave, but as a surge of agony from the depths of his personal hell. He'd craved the searing pain, the deeply felt anguish. It was only during these moments, when he was sure that he would drown in a river of grief, that he felt truly alive. Harmony's life is thrown into turmoil after she shares a memory with the madman responsible for the death of a popular member of the Rescue Alaska Search and Rescue Team. She knows she must overcome her fear and grief in order to track down the man, who has threatened the safety of the entire community. Rescue Alaska is the eighth series by USA Today Bestselling Author Kathi Daley. It is a fast moving mystery series with a paranormal twist which takes place in a small town in northern Alaska where visitors come to hike and ski. Harmony Carson is a lifelong resident who volunteers as a member of the local search and rescue team. Harmony has a unique gift which she often considers a curse. She is able to 'see' the individuals she is meant to help rescue, and more often than not she can feel their fear and their pain as well. When she isn't aiding in a rescue, Harmony works at Neverland - the bar owned by her brother in law Jake, and volunteers at the local animal shelter. Harmony lives in a rustic cabin with six dogs, four cats, six kittens, eight rabbits, and a blind mule named Homer.

I love this series, the characters, the mystery and touch of paranormal. Harmony has a gift/curse that allows her to sense when people need help which is helpful since she's in search and rescue. Her senses seem to be deepening when she accidentally locks in on a killer's emotions, to make it worse the killers somehow seems to be tied into the death of her sister years ago. This story kept me turning the pages between the search for answers from the past and actions of the present. I will definitely continue on with this series.

In this third book of the series the team is called into rescue a couple of teenagers who seem to have gotten lost. While searching for the boys Harmony realizes that something isn't quite right and warns the team that things aren't what they seem. Right after letting who she could reach know a blast goes off and ends up killing one of the members of the team. When she connected with the bomber an image of her sister in a cave so many years ago popped up. What did this man have to do with her sister and did he have something to do with her death? Harmony receives a phone call and it's the bomber letting her know where the next explosion will be. Another person dies trying to help put out the fire when the bomb goes off, now everyone is worried about false calls. Harmony doesn't think the killer is someone she knows but doesn't know who it could be. Why do they seem to be pulling her into their sick fantasy and why now? Follow along as Harmony tries to delve into the mind of a killer, find answers to the few clues that they have, and stay safe while doing it. This was a great whodunit with an emotional ride the whole way through. You can't help but feel bad for Harmony and hope that she finds the answers she so desperately seeks. I can't wait to see what is in store for her next.

Finding Courage is another fantastic book in the Rescue Alaska series by talented author Kathi Daley. Very suspenseful, this book held my attention all the way through. It even made me stay up way too late finishing it, as I couldn't wait another day to find out the ending. I highly recommend this to all mystery lovers.

Finding Courage ( Rescue Alaska Mystery-Book #3 ) By; Kathi Daley Finding Courage is book three in Rescue Alaska Mystery series by Kathi Daley. I love the story and the characters, both were well written and well developed. The author did not disappoint. I was hooked right at the start and could not put it down. There is action, with twist and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat and trying to read faster to see what is going to happen next. I caught myself holding my breath several times. This story hits the small town , people , and The Search and Rescue Team. Harmony has a special gift that she considers a curse sometimes. She helps with the rescues, with the team. Can she help the team and herself in Finding Courage? Daley writes another exciting cozy mystery in this series and I can’t wait for book four.

Rescue Alaska is a close knit community. Their "claim to fame" is a local man turned star powered actor. Being a wilderness community, volunteers and rescue workers are an extremely important segment of the population. It seems that someone with a propensity for fire and blowing things up has targeted those rescue workers. It also seems that there may be a connection to one rescuer who tragically died thirteen years before. Can the team and local law enforcement figure out who is doing this, and the motive, before the community crumbles? Emotions are tensed to the limits with fear raging through the residents. Harmony has a flash of a memory, but is it really tied to these new disasters or just due to the emotions? Twisting several past rescues in with present clues even when the reader and the team think they have a handle on who may be causing the trouble, questions still have no concrete answers. It takes a village to figure this out and support each other.

Finding Courage is the third book in Kathi Daley’s awesome Rescue Alaska Mystery series. The writing in this fast-paced book flows smoothly, the characters are three dimensional and affable, and the mystery is well plotted. This series has paranormal aspects with the main character being able to make a psychic connection with people in need of rescue. As with all her books, Ms. Daley has provided readers with a clean, fun read, caring and compassionate characters, and an intriguing mystery to try to solve. This book quickly turned into a suspenseful page-turner that was hard to put down and left me craving the next installment. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading well-crafted cozy mysteries. Harmony “Harm” Carson lives in a little backwoods cabin with multiple dogs, cats, and rabbits, plus a blind mule named Homer in Rescue, which is nestled in northern Alaska. She’s a waitress at Neverland, the bar owned by her brother-in-law, Jake Cartwright, is a volunteer member of Rescue’s search-and-rescue team, and manages the daily operations of an animal shelter. Harm has a unique gift – the ability to connect psychically with people she’s supposed to help save. Even though the images and feelings often threaten to overwhelm and possibly destroy her, she knows embracing the pain and fear is her destiny. One of her cats is a large Maine Coon named Moose, who has the ability to comfort her and melt away the trauma she experiences. She lost her parents in an automobile accident when she was a teenager and her sister, Val, became her guardian. When Val married Jake Cartwright, they became a family. Four years later, Val died during a rescue and Jake took over as her guardian. The attempt to rescue Val was the first time Harm’s ability to connect with people psychically occurred. Harm’s helping Rescue’s newest resident, Hank Houston, train his recently adopted dog, Kojak. Jake has been pursuing a relationship with Jordan, a local doctor, and Harm couldn’t be happier for them. Jake, the S&R’s captain, received a call about two teenage boys who had gone hiking that morning but failed to meet with the families for lunch as planned. With darkness and a sharp temperature drop approaching, Jake quickly gathered team members already at Neverland and they set off with two S&R dogs, Sitka and Yukon. As the search progressed, Harm had an intuition that the report of the missing teens was a hoax, but before she could tell the others in the search team, she connected with someone who terrified her. She’d just warned the others that the rescue was a trap and to pull back when the mountain exploded. She found Jake unconscious with a head injury, Wyatt was discovered trapped with a broken leg and dislocated shoulder, and Sitka alerted that he’d found Austin’s body. This wasn’t an accident, someone had lured them there, intentionally caused the landslide with dynamite, and Harm experienced a memory from when Val died, but it was his memory, not hers, and she knew the man who killed Austin was with Val when she died. After Harm discovers footsteps on her property, Jake and Police Chief Hank Houston insist she can’t stay at her cabin alone and her friend and S&R team member, Landon, volunteers to stay in her guest room. After an intentionally set fire and explosion at a local lumber mill causes multiple injuries and death, everyone is on high alert and filled with fear. The S&R team works closely with Hank to identify po
