Back Cover: 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: Shattered takes the reader on an exciting ride to prove the innocence of a brother and solve a puzzling murder. This book is a real page turner, with danger and excitement around every corner. I was a little put off by the amount of immorality that was mentioned in the book. The constant reminder that the murdered woman slept around with everyone and anyone ruined some of my enjoyment of this novel. Pettrey sets up a great cast of characters, and I do wonder what future adventures she has in store for readers and the series continues.
My Recommendation: I recommend this book to readers of Romantic Suspense.
