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. 

SILENCED is the fourth book in Ms. Pettrey’s Alaskan Courage series, but it easily stands alone. Fans will want to read the first four books to get the romances/suspenses in the first books Submerged, Shattered, and Stranded.

I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Pettrey’s writing. She had me hooked from the first page and while I had part of the story figured out in advance, she kept the reader guessing from multiple twists. I never guessed who did it for the original crime they were investigating. I won’t say more because I don’t want to give away a spoiler, but there are two different crimes solved in this book.

I am looking forward to the fifth book in this series, Kirra and Reed’s story, if I guess right. This is a series not to be missed if you like romantic suspense. $14.99. 336 pages.
