Win a Nook HD & read My Review of "Shattered" by Dani Pettrey

Enter to win a Nook HD (see end of post) and check out my review of Dani Pettrey's latest book!


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 review...

Moments after diving into "Shattered", I knew I was in for a sleepless night. I absolutely love a good suspense book, and Dani Pettrey has provided exactly that! I'm a sucker for books where people are falsely accused of a crime and the reader is left wondering how everything will be resolved, and so I greatly enjoyed the slant the author takes in unraveling this mystery. The characters are well-developed, and the scenes race along with building tension. I also enjoyed how the author has woven threads of faith into the story, demonstrating the real difference faith in God makes, such as in Piper's life, contrasted with characters who struggle to believe in God, such as in the case of Piper's brother Gage. The romance in the story is handled well, and though that aspect didn't appeal as much to me as a male reader, I still enjoyed the story and appreciated how the relationships unfolded. I actually enjoyed this story even more than the first in the series (Submerged), and I'm curious to see which direction the author will be taking next. She's definitely captured my interest with this series!

If you are looking for an entertaining story and you don't mind struggling to put the book down in order to attend to real life, then plan on picking up a copy of this book. I give this book a solid recommendation and award it 4 out of 5 stars.
