Review: Shattered by Dani Pettrey

Shattered by Dani Pettrey
Alaskan Courage series: Book Two
Bethany House / 2013
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:

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.

My rating:
My thoughts:

I read Submerged (book one in the Alaskan Courage series) last year and loved it, so I knew going in that Shattered was sure to be a treat... and it was fantastic! The mystery was very good and I seriously had no idea who the killer was or the reason for what was going on. I was surprised when everything was revealed, as it was such a great plot and I did not see it coming! Love when that happens. :)

After being introduced to Landon and Piper in book one, I could hardly wait to read their story and it was well worth the wait. All of the main characters were great, but Landon would have to be my favorite - probably because his feelings were just so real and I couldn't help cheering for him.

I found it particularly interesting to learn more about Gage and Reef - Piper's brothers. Kayden also intrigues me and I wonder what her story is... can't wait to read their books and find out! I loved the way the characters interacted with each other (especially the McKennas and Landon) - there were quite a few scenes I found very funny... I couldn't help but chuckle. :)

The romance in Shattered was soooooo sweet - it was great to see the characters grow closer and closer to each other. I also really liked the subplot romance story and that Cole and Bailey (the main characters from Submerged) were in Shattered a lot.

All in all, I loved Shattered! If you enjoy romantic suspense novels with some inspirational elements, then I think you will really like this book. I recommend reading Submerged first so you'll know the backstory.
