Shattered by Dani Pettrey is the second book in her outstanding Alaskan Courage series. I’ve enjoyed both stories which revolve around the McKenna family—three brothers and two sisters who run an outdoor adventure business in Yancey, Alaska. Shattered is the story of youngest sister, Piper, doing all she can, against all odds, to prove brother Reef’s innocence in a brutal murder. Helping, along with her other siblings, are Deputy Landon Grainger, a long-time friend of the family, and Darcy St. James, a determined reporter who also believes in Reef’s innocence.
Author Pettrey describes herself as a writer of inspirational romantic suspense and says she loves this genre because it combines the” thrill of adventure” with “nail-biting suspense,” a “deepening of her characters’ faith,” and “plenty of romance.” This story definitely does all that while focusing on the relationships of an interesting family that promises to grow with each new book. I can’t wait to see which family member will find his or her life’s mate next—and what mystery or challenge the McKenna’s will have to safely solve in order for that to happen.
I thank Bethany House Publishers for sending a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
