In this third installment in Blackston’s Flabbergasted trilogy, Jay, the former-stockbroker-turned-missionary, travels to Australia for an exotic vacation. Accompanying him is his girlfriend, Allie Kyle, his best friend, Steve Cole, and Allie's lime-green-loving soul sister, Darcy Yeager.Jay is only a day into his romantic trip ‘down under’ when he makes an unpleasant discovery: Steve had the same plan for this vacation, and packed an engagement ring to present to his own sweetheart during the trip. So who proposes second and looks like a copycat? Not to be deterred, Jay and Steve come up with a plan. They will trek in different directions with their beloveds, without raising the girls' suspicions. Each man will have a limited time to carry out his plan, and the couples will rendezvous later at a predetermined location. All goes well until Jay and Allie find themselves stranded in the outback with little food or water, a jeep the color of the red dirt that surrounds them, and no way to let anyone know where they are.

Ray Blackston of Greenville, South Carolina, worked as a buyer and a broker for eleven years before cashing in his modest 401k and leaving his corporate cubicle to write full time. He serves on the missions committee of Grace Church, has traveled to rural Ecuador on a summer missions program, and coaches his six-year-old nephew Action Jackson in T-ball. He is the author of the popular summer hit Flabbergasted.From AudioFile:
Andrew Peterson tries hard--at least 75% of the time--to spur along the action of this "lost in the wilderness adventure," set in the Australian Outback. But even the attractiveness of the hero and heroine, two 20-something love-struck but unbelievably chaste American missionaries, can't pull the saga out of endless hours of stuck-in-the-red-mud boredom. Peterson gathers speed as the couple, after numerous attempts, almost die trying to find a way out, but when the rescue finally comes, the narrator, as well as the listener, stumbles into disbelief over the deus ex machina improbability of it all.
