About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Shattered by Dani Pettrey

My Thoughts:

Karli Davis is full of secrets- and now she's dead.  She had few friends (plenty of enemies) and lived the life of a wild child but who hated her enough to kill her?  Shattered, written by Dani Pettrey, is a thrilling mystery combined with romantic tension that keeps you guessing until the very end!  Reef McKenna is accused of murdering Karli and Piper, his sister, steps up to clear his name. She embarks on a journey to find answers and unwittingly puts her whole family in danger.  I admired Piper's bravery and spunk and the close relationship she shared with her siblings.  Now let me tell you a bit about Landon Grainger.  He's long-suffering, ruggedly handsome and every woman's dream!  Dani Pettrey does an amazing job of weaving God into Piper and Landon's story.  The unknown "shadow" that lurks in the pages of Shattered is relentless and wonderfully chilling.  Dani Pettrey's suspense reminds me a bit of Mary Higgins Clark- but Ms. Pettrey characters are fresher, younger and much more exciting!  This book begins with a suspected crime of passion but snowballs into so much more.  The trail leads from Alaska, to British Columbia, to California and I found myself wishing for more time to read!  Why is everyone afraid to talk about Karli?  You'll have to read the book to find out.:)
Dani Pettrey is a wife, homeschooling mom, and author. 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 with their two teenage daughters. Visit her website at www.danipettrey.com.
