Piper McKenna couldn't be more thrilled that her prodigal brother, Reef, has returned to Yancey, Alaska, after five years. But her happiness is short-lived when Reef appears at her house covered in blood. A fellow snowboarder has been killed--but despite the evidence, Reef swears he's innocent. And Piper believes him.
Deputy Landon Grainger loves the McKennas like family, but he's also sworn to find the truth. Piper is frustrated with his need for facts over faith, but 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 may mean risking Landon's career.
With Piper waging her own search, the two head deep into Canada's rugged backcountry--and unexpected complications. Not only does their long friendship seem to be turning into something more, but this dangerous case is becoming deadlier with each step.
Dani Pettrey has written another nailbiter of a suspense story. In this one, two old friends slowly begin to discover that their feelings for each have changed, but for Landon and Piper things get even more complicated when Landon is forced to arrest Piper's brother, Reef for murder. And while things look pretty bad for Reef, Piper firmly believes in his innocence, so much so that she starts investigating on her own. Landon tries to protect Piper from her own curiosity but when that fails he determines that the only way to protect her is to find the answers she is seeking. The investigation takes them from British Columbia to California searching for answers to the question of who wanted Karli Davis dead and why. I thoroughly enjoyed this, especially the investigation parts and the romantic parts. If you enjoy Christian suspense with a good dose of romance, I can highly recommend this series.
I am currently working as a elementary school librarian which I love. I enjoy sharing books on my blogs of which I have two (Geo Librarian and LDS and Lovin' it). I also review for School Library Journal.
