Publisher's Summary

Waking from a six-year stasis, Captain Kari Hanley - along with her Lieutenant Jeff Mooney - is ready to complete her mission; to find a possible inhabitable planet deeper in our solar system.

When they find themselves suddenly space-napped into a new mission, Captain Hanley will have to fight to make this mission a success. However, when things immediately start to take strange turns, not only do they struggle to help their new friends; but love and friendship, along with life-changing decisions and danger begin to pop up around every corner.

Will she succeed in saving her kidnapper’s race? Will she let love invade her soul, causing her to set her mission aside?

Or will she manage to complete her mission and make it back home?

Does she even want to?

Follow Kari in her journey among the cosmos.

Note: Sautiition's Hope is a slow burn alien romance with lots of adventure and struggle. There are difficult topics of conversation involving abuse, among other things, as well as tough and suggestive situations, violence, and sexual scenes that make this audiobook suitable for audiences 18+.

Usual stuff

From the other reviews, I got the sense that this was a feel good story and exactly what I needed right now. But it turned out to be pretty common place and trite. Normally I would not have finished the book except it did lightly touch on current issues such as the environment, prejudices, capital punishment and activism. But, in the long run I just found it mostly boring.

Sweet Story!

This is a nice, uplifting story about found family, helping others and finding your place and purpose in the universe. Just like Mel Smith's other books, Sautiition's Hope provides a great dose of sweetness and wholesomeness in the midst of our decidedly unwholesome real world. If you've been reading too much dark romance or life is getting you down, this is a wonderful palate cleanser. Also, Vahru is a literal dream. 🤩 Can't wait to read the next book and find out how Kari and her friends save the rest of the Sautiitions!
