Shattered by Dani Pettrey


Shattered By Dani Pettrey is the second in the Alaskan Courage Series. I had not read the first book and while this book can stand alone by itself, I did feel a little left out in the beginning. It felt like I was missing a piece of the puzzle and I did not know who all the character were yet. But after a couple chapters, it all fell into place and became a really good read.
Shattered had a love story intertwined with a  good murder mystery. Always a good combo. I got to know the characters well and was excited to keep reading to find out who the killer really was.
Basically a young man was charged with murder but his sister does not believe he killed anyone and is determined to find the truth.
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.
