Book review and giveaway info: Shattered

Shattered by Dani Pettrey

About Shattered

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. 

My thoughts on Shattered

Shattered is the second book in the Alaskan Courage series.  I have not read the first book, Submerged, but plan to and I am anxiously awaiting the release of the third book, Stranded, this October.  Although, it is part of a series, this can easily be read as a stand alone book.  There is enough back story given throughout the book that you can follow along easily.  I really enjoyed the mystery throughout the book and did not find it to be overly predictable at all.  I also liked following along as Landon and Piper allowed themselves to realize and admit their feelings for each other.  I was as intrigued by the mystery as I was their relationship.  

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery, combined with a romance.  There are some scenes that a teen might find disturbing, so I strongly suggest that a parent reviews the book before allowing their teen to read it.
