Reef McKenna has just been accused of gruesomely murdering a fellow snowboarder and former flame. Piper McKenna fully believes in her brother’s innocence despite his reckless past. Piper sets out to prove Reef’s innocence, and longtime friend Deputy Landon Grainger steps in to help even though he is skeptical. Landon and Piper set off on a wild goose chase following clues that take them to Canada, Portland and back to Alaska. During the perilous journey, Landon and Piper begin to reveal their feelings for one another. Solving Reef’s case means more than justice; it also opens the door for love.
Dani Pettrey is a wonderful new addition to the Christian fiction and suspense genres. Her debut novel, Submerged, was a smashing success, and Shattered is even better. The characters are passionate while revealing a profound faith that makes their love even more true and powerful. Shattered has the elements of suspense that will appeal to mystery lovers, but also enough romance to satisfy the romance readers. The character development keeps readers hooked and eagerly awaiting the next novel in the series.
