Shattered by Dani Pettrey ~ A Romantic Suspense Book Review

Dani Pettrey
Alaskan Courage, Book 2
Romantic Suspense

Back of the book:
With all the Evidence Against Him, 
Only a Sister’s Trust Can Save Him Now

When her prodigal brother’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 from 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 thoughts:
In book two of the Alaskan Courage series we return to the rustically beautiful town of Yancey, Alaska. During this installment we meet up with the feisty Piper McKenna. She is on a mission to prove that her beloved brother Reef is innocent of the murder of his friend Karli. Her task is complicated by the mounting evidence and the wavering belief of those surrounding them.

The twists and turns of the plot make for a quick page turner of a book. I was delighted that this second book was every bit as good as the previous book Submerged. The relationship between Landon and Piper is filled with angst and yearning which made for the perfect build up to the conclusion.

I’m looking forward to Stranded which is scheduled to be released in September 2013. There will also be a fourth book in the series . If you are reading this as a selection for your book club she has wonderful discussion guides on her website at
