Shattered

Shattered by Dani Pettrey

Synopsis:

When her prodigal brother Reef’s return to Yancey, Alaska, is shattered by his arrest for murder, Piper McKenna is determined to protect him.

Deputy Landon Grainger loves the McKennas like family, but he’s also sworn to find the truth. And he knows those closest to you have the power to deceive you the most.  With his sheriff pushing for a quick conviction, some unexpected leads complicate the investigation, and pursuing the truth puts Landon’s career in jeopardy.

When Piper launches her own investigation, Landon realizes he must protect her from herself–and whatever complications await as the two follow clues deep into Canada’s rugged backcountry. Not only does their long friendship seem to be turning into something more, but this dangerous case is becoming deadlier with each step.

Thoughts:

Shattered is the second book in Dani Pettrey’s Alaskan Courage series.  As much as I loved her first book, Submerged, I loved Shattered even more! 

One of my favorite things about a book series is the feeling of really knowing the characters and becoming invested in their stories.  I loved coming back to Yancey, Alaska, and catching up with Cole and Bailey and the rest of the McKenna family.

The relationship between Piper McKenna and Landon Grainger is one of friendship often fraught with conflict.  Though they continue to deny their feelings for each other, they soon realize that a deep friendship can lead to an even deeper love!

Shattered is a story of intrigue, romance, danger, and deadly consequences.  The well-written plot twists with every turn of the page!  Dani Pettrey does a wonderful job weaving spiritual elements into this story in a very real way! 

Don’t miss this Alaskan adventure!
