If you ever wonder why Im tough on books its because of this one. This book is so amazing that it makes all the other books Ive read seem not so great. I have only good words to say about this book. It makes you want to move to Alaska right away and join the McKennas. This isnt really a suspense book, rather an adventure and mystery. Kathleen, another member of the Inkwell Review team, doesnt really like any type of suspense, yet she loved this book. I love the atmosphere of this book. Its very family oriented. All of the siblings are so close and so uplifting to read about. I cant believe what a short review this is, but theres nothing more to say except READ IT!
I really love this book. I enjoyed both the romance and the suspense. The suspense is exciting and the story complex. The romance has an interesting storyline and is built upon the couple really knowing each other and not just upon a superficial relationship. I am always hoping to meet great characters in a novel, and this book delivers. The stories in the Alaskan Courage Series are all about the McKenna family, but with the focus on one particular family member in each book. Its fun to get to know everyone better as the series progresses. Some of the characters are Christian and others are not. In this book one of the characters makes the decision to become a follower of Christ. That commitment is one of the focal points of the story.
This book can definitely stand alone, but I suggest you read the books in order to get the most enjoyment out of them. I highly recommend Shattered by Dani Pettrey to those who like romantic suspense.
Oh my goodness... I thought that Submerged was sensational, but Dani Pettrey really outdid herself with Shattered! I'd definitely recommend reading the series in order to really understand the characters and the little details that Dani gradually reveals in each book. This one is my favourite so far. I also loved the addition of Darcy St. James - the tenacious little spitfire! Can't wait to see what might develop between her and Gage!
Shattered had loads of action and even more suspense (is that even possible?). I loved how Landon develops in the story, especially concerning his faith, and how his and Piper's relationship develops. Piper's curiosity, stubbornness and antics made me laugh! I'm glad that they realised their feelings earlier rather than later in the book. I think I would have died if the going forwards and backwards in their relationship continued any longer! Highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery, spine-tingling suspense and a sweet love story.
