About Shattered

When her prodigal brother Reef’s returns to Yancey, Alaska, and arrested 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 the 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 Take

This was a page-turner!  I enjoyed reading Shattered by Dani Pettrey, not only for the character development but also the action and mystery.  Pettrey kept me guessing all through the book.  This is the second book in a series, and I haven’t read the first.  It didn’t matter a bit, I had no problems, Shattered stands alone.  Loyalty is a strong theme in the storyline and that always appeals to me.  Believing in someone, despite the evidence.

Pettrey tells her story through dialogue.  She lets the interaction between the characters tell the readers what is happening.  I like reading that type of novel, I feel as though I am “in” the story rather than just reading.  Even when sharing the thoughts of a character, she uses the technique of quoting thoughts in italics.  We, the readers are inside the characters head, not just being told what they are thinking.  This takes great skill, to speak differently for each character, so the reader doesn’t get the characters confused.  I had no difficulty knowing who was speaking through extensive dialogue.
