Shattered by Dani Pettrey

About the Book:

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. 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, and he knows those closest to you have the power to deceive you the most. With the sheriff pushing for a quick conviction, pursuing the truth in this case could mean the end of Landon’s career.

As Piper wages 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 the search for answers is becoming deadlier with each step.

My Thoughts:

Dani Pettrey's McKenna family ranks right up there with the O'Malley clan in my opinion! This is top-notch suspense with characters that you will love. Dani adds just the right amount of romance to her stories, and the faith of the McKenna family is evident throughout the novel.

While the family dynamic is familiar and enjoyable, Dani puts a unique twist in the stories with setting. Welcome to Alaska, reading peeps! Enjoy your stay, but remember that danger lurks everywhere...and if it's out there, a McKenna will find it!

Piper McKenna just hasn't learned to leave well enough alone.  Sound familiar to anyone besides me?  But family first, and she'll do anything to help her brother Reef, the returning prodigal sibling.

Problem is, Deputy Landon Grainger feels like family.  He's known the McKennas for years, and he can sense trouble lurking.  Pushing for the truth could possibly push Piper further that something he's willing to risk??

Be prepared for some twists and turns in this newest tale...but rest assured everything comes together by the final pages...just not as you'd expect. Piper is my favorite McKenna so far, but I'm hoping each sibling gets his/her own story. The "Alaskan Courage" series is one series I don't want to see come to a quick end!

Dani has earned a new spot on my 'must read' wish list with this one.  She had me with her debut novel, "Submerged", and she's cemented me in place as a fan with "Shattered".  I cannot wait to see what she dreams up next, and to meet the next McKenna sibling up close and personal.

Did I mention I LOVE this family??

If you enjoyed Dee Henderson's O'Malleys, you'll enjoy "Shattered", and don't miss the first book, "Submerged". I received a copy from Bethany House by taking part in a LitFuse Publicity book tour in exchange for an honest review.  "Shattered" (and "Submerged") is highly recommended!

Happy Reading!
