About the Book: Silenced, by Dani Pettrey, is the fourth book in the Alaskan Courage Series. " 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 Thoughts: This book has it all-adventure, mystery, and romance! I've read and reviewed the first three books in this Alaskan Courage series, and they were incredible! You know how often in movies and books, the sequels aren't quite as good as the first book/movie? Well, that's not the case with this series!! Each book is just as exciting as the last! Each book of the series focuses more on one of the siblings of the McKenna family. Silenced is Kayden's book, and believe me I could not put it down!!
Kayden McKenna is such a complex character-she has a wall up she is determined to not let down. Family friend Jake has his own issues from his past, and the two are not close.. As they work together on a case, the walls start to crumble.
I love Alaska (haven't been there yet though), and the description of the scenery just makes me feel like I'm there with the characters. With each new book, I feel like I get to know the family even better. I love series, and usually the series I read have three books at the most, so I am thrilled that there is a fourth book in the Alaskan Courage Series, with a fifth on the way!!
Author Dani Pettrey is a talented writer, one of my favorites, and I highly recommend reading Silenced and the entire Alaskan Courage Series! Believe me, you will not be disappointed!
