Race For The Gold | Dana Mentink Marathon


Today I am reviewing Race For The Gold by Dana Mentink.

Here is a brief synopsis:


Speed skater Laney Thompson still has nightmares about the car crash that almost shattered her lifelong dream.

But as she’s poised to compete in the world’s most important games, she finds worse trouble.

Someone wants her out of contention… badly. Laney won’t let anything stop her — not sabotage, a stalker or partial amnesia.

As she and her brooding trainer Max Blanco strive to overcome past tragedy, the ice between them starts to melt.

But as the race draws closer, a killer becomes more desperate, and a race for the gold becomes a race for their lives!

Dana Mentink writes awesome suspense novels… don’t miss RACE FOR THE GOLD! Tweet this!

Ouch! Someone is seriously trying to wreck Laney’s chance at the Olympics!

I have to admit, I wanted to smack Max, when he doubted her. I mean, come on! Does he trust her — or not? Well, I guess I got sucked into the story again. But it’s not difficult when I’m reading great books. One minute I’m sitting on my couch reading — the next minute I’m sliding on the ice, trying to lesson the impact when I slam into the wall in the next few seconds!

Nope; I’ve never skated on ice (I’m not even allowed on roller skates anymore, since I took a tumble and started having seizures)… but when I read Race For The Gold, I could feel myself gliding, the cold air rushing past me, as I skated faster and faster.

I would love to share more with you, but if I do, I might give too much away. So read it for yourself — you are really going to love it!

Dana Mentink writes awesome, believable stories with characters you would love to get to know better — at least the good guys. You really shouldn’t want to meet the bad guys, even if you are intrigued by them.

I highly recommend this book… actually, I recommend ALL of Dana’s books!

Today is a little sad for me — because this is my last review for the month. Now I have to say goodbye to Dana; but I have another great author to feature next month.

God bless you!

    Oh my, sounds like Race for the Gold will be another book Dana has the reader right there with the main character, Laney, from the beginning. A book filled with excitement, intensity and suspense. Donna, I’ve enjoyed you sharing reviews of Dana’s books and I have found a new amazing author for inspirational suspense with romance too.
    I’ll be looking forward to September’s author and reviews as Amish genre are my favorite books to read, too. Blessings always.

    Donna, don’t you just love it when the reader drops you smack in the middle of the action & you feel like you’re inside the character?? This sounds like another book by Dana that I need to add to my reading list 🙂

      I just saw my mistake…that should say writer NOT reader who drops you in the middle of the action…..oops, haha!!


      • DJ Mynatt August 28, 2015 at 9:55 pm

        Ha! I knew what you meant (I make that same mistake way too often).
