Silenced by Dani Pettrey Review and Reader Fun Post!
A relaxing day of rock climbing takes a disturbing turn when Kayden McKenna’s route leads her to a face-to-face encounter with a dead climber. Is it a terrible accident or something sinister? When the case is handed to the overburdened sheriff, he turns to Jake Westin. With Jake’s past now revealed, he’s ready to use his talent for investigation again-–but he could never prepare for where the case will take him.
Kayden and Jake soon realize that the death was no accident. And worse, it seems the killer is on to them. When strange things begin happening in Yancey, Jake is terrified that once again his world may put someone he loves in danger.
But the truth is far worse than either of them imagine.
My Review: Silenced by Dani Pettrey 5 Stars!!!
Since the beginning of Submerged I've known that Kayden and Jake would be perfect for each other, and I have been waiting patiently (Okay, maybe not so patiently!) to read their story! I'm beyond thrilled to say that I was not disappointed! Silenced exceeded all my expectations. I absolutely loved this book, which is obvious based on the fact that I read it from cover to cover in under twelve hours! Just like all of Dani's other books I hated to put it down! I loved finally getting inside Kayden's head and really getting to know her for the first time. And of course Jake proved himself to be the amazing lead hero that I always knew he was! There was not a single thing about this book that I didn't love! Every time I return to Yancey, Alaska in one of the novels in the Alaskan Courage series it feels like coming home! That's the beautiful thing about Ms. Pettrey's books, yes the pages fly but even more than that the pages of the book or the screen of the e-reader disappears and you're no longer reading a novel but living it right alongside the McKenna siblings.
I would say more about the plot but I don't want to risk spoiling anything. But let me just say that while I think Shattered is still my favorite book in this series, Silenced is yet another Dani Pettrey crafted treasure for my keeper shelf!
Overall, I absolutely adored Silenced and I cannot wait for the next book though I'm sure it will be bittersweet for me because Reef's story will be the last in the Alaskan Courage series.
P.S. I have several favorite Christian romantic suspense authors but if somebody told me I could read only pick one of them to read for the rest of my life... My choice would be Dani Pettrey!!!
I received this book from the author and 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
Dani Pettrey is a wife, home-schooling mom, and the acclaimed author of the romantic suspense series Alaskan Courage, which includes her bestselling novels Submerged, Shattered, Stranded, and her latest release, Silenced. She feels blessed to write inspirational romantic suspense because it incorporates so many things she loves–the thrill of adventure, nail biting suspense, the deepening of her characters’ faith, and plenty of romance. She and her husband reside in Maryland, where they enjoy time with their daughters, son-in-law, and super adorable grandson.
And finally! I'm not sure exactly what Reef McKenna looks like but the first movie star that came to mind was...Taylor Lautner! And look, the picture I found has Aurora in it too!
