Trapped In Yosemite

Trapped in Yosemite by Dana Mentink is a stand-alone Love Inspired Suspense novel. Just before a massive earthquake rocks Yosemite National Park, Stella Rivers witnesses a murder. Now on the run from the killer will she escape the aftershocks from the quake and outwit the person who wants her dead? This was a very intense story. You never knew who to trust or when there would be another earth tremor! The story told of mistakes and forgiveness, friendships tested, and the overwhelming love that God has for His children.



I received this book from Celebrate-Lit for my honest review.

More from Dana

I won’t ever forget October 17th, 1989. I was finished with my student teaching duties, chatting with my mother while we watched the World Series. It was an epic matchup of two Bay Area teams. As we watched, the floor lurched and the entire house began to rattle and pitch. We ran outside and watched the street undulate like ocean waves. We’d later come to learn it was a 6.9 earthquake on the Loma Prieta fault. The shaking only lasted 20 seconds but 63 people were killed, 3,757 were reported injured and 12,053 displaced. The damage estimates reached as high as $10 billion, with 18,306 houses leveled. Approximately 2,575 businesses were impacted and 147 were destroyed. The part I will remember most was the collapse of a section of the freeway in Oakland which trapped people in the pancaked structure. I remember watching the close space rescue teams work night and day to find survivors.

Little did I know that memorable event would someday lead to a book! This novel combines the iconic California setting of Yosemite and the big fear buried deep in every California’s mind…the big one, the massive earthquake we know will be coming someday. Of course you know there will be a happy ending in the novel, but I hope you will feel the edge of your seat suspense that keeps you turning pages. God bless you, dear readers!
