LitFuse Publicity: Shattered by Dani Pettrey

on March 4, 2013

With All the Evidence Against Him, Only a Sister’s Trust Can Save Him Now

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.

You can buy the book on Amazon.

Dani Pettrey is a wife, homeschooling mom, and author. She feels blessed to write inspirational romantic suspense because it incorporates so many things she loves–the thrill of adventure, nail biting suspense, the deepening of her characters’ faith, and plenty of romance. She and her husband reside in Maryland with their two teenage daughters.

My Opinion:

I am only 1/2 way through this book but being that this is the first book  I’ve read by Dani Pettrey I have to say that I am going to have to get the first book!  This book is an awesome mix of romance, mystery and faith – while Landon has a hard time believing in God there are many who are pulling and praying for him and while I don’t know what happened between him and Piper (I’m assuming I’ll have to read the first book, Submerged, to find out) I know that she doesn’t want to be involved with an unbeliever.   As she sets out to find out who really murdered, her brother Reef’s on again off again girlfriend, she puts not only her life at risk but also her relationship with Landon – if you want to call it a relationship.

Usually, these types of books you can wrap up in a pretty bow and know the whodunit just several chapters in but not Shattered, Dani keeps her readers guessing with all the twists that keep coming at you through out the whole story and that is what makes one stay up long after they should be in bed – if I didn’t have a penchant for falling asleep while holding my Fire, I’d stay up all night (I can no longer pull the all night read-a-thons).  I look forward to finishing this book and back tracking to read the first one so that I can figure out the whole Piper and Landon friendship thing.

  1. […] whole story – suffice to say, it’s a book well worth reading and since I read book 2, Shattered, and I can’t wait to go back and read book 1 which I’m sure will be as great a read as […]
