Book Review: Slienced

Cover Art
ISBN # 9780764211959
From The Back:
Jake Knew Something Was Wrong.
But He Never Guessed
How Wrong.

A relaxing day of rock climbing takes a disturbing turn when Kayden McKenna's route brings her face-to-face with a dead climber. Is it a terrible accident or something darker? When the case is handed to overburdened sheriff Landon Grainger, he turns to Jake Westin for help. With Jake's past now revealed, he's ready to use his talent for investigation again--but he could never prepare for where the mystery will take him.

Kayden's climbing expertise soon leads her and Jake to the realization that the death was no accident. And worse, it seems the killer is onto 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 he could ever imagine. 

My Reflections:
This is Pettrey's fourth book in the Alaskan Courage Series, and I have had the opportunity to read book three Stranded in this series. For character development purposes I recommend you read these novels in order to get their full benefit. However if you are like me and pick it up in the middle it is doable.

Pettrey has the uncanny ability to snare you from the first pages of her adventurous quests and not let you free until the book has expired. Danger, tension, romance, excitement, and mystery are just a few of the elements this book features. You will certainly have the need to finish this book in one long sitting so, please take my advice and don't start late at night like I did, or you will pay for it the next day.

Silenced centers on Kayden McKenna and Jake Cavanaugh. When Kayden  and Jake are thrown together to solve a murder, they soon find they are the hunted. The pair have feeling for each other, but lack the courage to let their feeling be know. Kayden holds everyone close to her at arms length, not letting anyone in. She is tough and independent. Jake is hopelessly smitten with Kayden, he is a man with a past. Jake has lost more than any one man should, and his past may just have caught up with him!

This story is extremely fast paced, leaving you on the edge until just the right moment. Don't even try to figure out the who- dun- it, just enjoy the thrilling speed at which this novel generates. 

Looking forward to the 5th and final book of this series, wonderful job Dani Pettrey!
