Review: Shattered by Dani Pettrey 5 Stars!!!

Oh, wow! Where I do even begin, this book is INCREDIBLE!

In Submerged, the first book in the series, I fell head over heels in love with Piper and Landon, so Shattered was a dream come true for me. I didn't think it was possible to love anything more than Submerged but I was proven wrong!!! Shattered is full of everything I love the most in a book, edge of your seat suspense, sweet romance, an awesome mystery (By the way, I had no clue what was really going on!) And an incredible faith filled message.

I love the McKenna family so much, when I read their stories I feel like a part of their family, and like I am living the story right along with them (How many books can do that? In my experience, not many!)
All the settings and descriptions were so vivid I felt like I was really there. The faith message in both Submerged and Shattered taught me so many things, and has served to bring me into a closer and deeper relationship with God.

I have so many favorite scenes in Shattered, but at the top of the list is chapter 36 in it's entirety!!! Those who have read the book will know exactly what I mean! :)
If you haven't read Shattered yet then prepare to be amazed. (And if that doesn't pique your curiosity, I don't know what will!)

I loved every word of this book and it is and will always be at the top of my list of all time favorite books!
Dani Pettrey's writing is amazing, there is an incredible feeling of coming home that exists in everything she writes. I cannot wait for Stranded (I think this is the first time in my life that I am actually looking forward to September! LOL)

Okay, I'll stop gushing now, but let me just say that Shattered is amazing and a MUST READ! But don't just take my word for it, read Submerged and Shattered and discover for yourself the magic of the McKenna's!

I received this book for free from Bethany House publishers in exchange for my honest review. The above is my honest opinion.
All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own


  1. Must agree: the McKenna's are a special bunch. Excited to read the final two books in the series. Eventually. :)
