Shattered by Dani Pettrey is the 2nd book in what I feel is my new favorite series. I started reading it and couldn't stop. I love stories that are about families--where we get to learn about each person's story. This is one of those series. I also love hearing about families that stick together, even if they don't live near each other, which they do in this book. As soon as I finished this, I texted my BFF and told her to go get the books and start reading them. I told her they will be our new favorites next to the O'Malley series by Dee Henderson. This is high praise in our world. She did and is in complete agreement with me. She was able to obtain Submerged immediately and was in the process of obtaining Shattered last time we chatted. I have Submerged sitting on my bookshelf. This book is good enough that I don't mind going back to read the previous book in the series.
The pace of this book is great. The characters are intriguing. It is definitely a work of fiction, but that's why we read it, right? I love some of the nuances that the author added about Alaska-like someone asking for fresh fruit in the middle of winter and getting canned. It made me laugh, but it was a fun detail that just added to the story for me. If you like a good romantic suspense novel, I highly recommend this one.
