"Shattered" by Dani Pettrey

With All the Evidence Against Him, Only a Sister's Trust Can Save Him Now

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. 

Shattered  will take you on an intense and suspenseful journey through the Alaskan wilderness in search of a masterful killer.  I loved it!  You can't go wrong with the McKenna family, but the twists and turn that Pettrey wrote into this story will keep you on your toes.  With most romantic mysteries, I have at least some clue as to whodunnit, but I was clueless with this one.

Better yet, when I finished I passed the book along to my husband.  He didn't speak for the next two days as he devoured the book - it's that good - but he said the same:  it's not possible to guess the ending.

I love when a book keeps me hooked from the very first word until the last, but it's even better when it's so full of action and adventure that my husband wants to read it, too.  Birds of a feather - read together.  :-)

Dani Pettrey is a wife, homeschooling mom, and author. She feels blessed to write inspirational romantic suspense because it incorporates so many things she loves--the thrill of adventure, nail biting suspense, the deepening of her characters' faith, and plenty of romance. She and her husband reside in Maryland with their two teenage daughters. 

I received a free copy of Shattered from LitFuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.


  1. I have been so negligent about going to the library, or doing any reading for fun. Need to change that soon. This sounds like a good book! I really appreciate all the reviews you do - there are so many books out there, it is hard to know which ones to choose - and I really dislike not finishing a book once I start it, so the key is to only start ones that I will really like, or that I know will have some edifying (spelling?) effects!

    1. I love being able to review these great books! It's wonderful to have such creative authors using their talents to teach lessons while entertaining. :-)

      If you're going to make that trip to the library, I'd definitely check out Dani Pettrey. This series is wonderful!
