ISBN: 978-0764211959
Pages: 336


I have read many Christian fiction series and most of them tend to have a different set of main characters for every each new book. The Alaskan Courage series is the exception, which each novel centers on the McKenna family. For a reader, it is nice revisiting likeable characters.

The fourth book, Silenced, centers on the oldest McKenna sibling, Kayden, whom finds herself getting entangled in a mystery when she stumbles upon a dead body while rock climbing. The dead climber's investigation is left in the hands of Sheriff Landon Grainger, but he enlists the help from former Boston homicide detective, Jake Westin, who is someone Kayden would much rather avoid interacting with, but her feelings for Jake can't be pushed aside forever.

Besides from catching a killer, Sheriff Grainger has to deal with Reef McKenna returning to town for the sheriff's wedding to Reef's sister, Piper.

There is a lot happening in Silenced - a murder mystery plot, romance and a lot of McKenna drama. Like I said above, it is nice revisiting characters. Once again, the author, Dani Pettrey has done a remarkable job writing an intriguing murder mystery plot with great descriptions and character development. Silenced is fast-paced, well-written romantic mystery and it is a great entry in the Alaskan Courage series.

  1. Billy,
    Such a fun review! I think what's special about Dani's characters is that you actually WANT to spend time with them in more than one book. They have a way of staying in your heart and mind, so that when they show up in another story it's like a reunion with old friends. Kind of like every time I visit your blog :) Thanks again for your post and for helping us share about Dani's work. You're awesome.

  2. I don't have a favorite character, because I haven't read any of the Alaskan Courage books yet.

  3. Billy, thank you so much for your insightful review. We're sure thankful for all your help in sharing about Dani's book and hosting a giveaway! ~Amanda
