Shattered by Dani Pettrey * A Review

 A Thrilling New Romantic Suspense from the Genre's Newest Star

Piper McKenna couldn't be more thrilled that her prodigal brother, Reef, has returned to Yancey, Alaska, after five years. But her happiness is short-lived when Reef appears at her house covered in blood. A fellow snowboarder has been killed--but despite the evidence, Reef swears he's innocent. And Piper believes him.

Deputy Landon Grainger loves the McKennas like family, but he's also sworn to find the truth. Piper is frustrated with his need for facts over faith, but 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 may mean risking Landon's career.

With Piper waging her own search, the two head deep into Canada's rugged backcountry--and unexpected complications. Not only does their long friendship seem to be turning into something more, but this dangerous case is becoming deadlier with each step.

  I enjoyed reading Shattered by DanI Pettrey. It is book two in the Alaskan Courage series. The characters, places and events of this book are so well described. I enjoyed the first book in this series and will enjoy the other/others.
  I love the large McKenna family and really like Piper and Landon’s love story. It was largely the love story with the suspense and murder story as a second story.
   I really enjoy Christian books, but this one had too much Sexual content. I think Ms. Pettrey should be careful of the things she writes.
  This is a nice suspenseful book and I was very surprised at the ending and why the killer did what he did. It was a plot twister and you thought the killer was after the victim for one thing, but it turns out it was a completely different reason.
Very interesting and delightful read. Recommend it for fast, easy reading.
