Description: A relaxing day of rock climbing takes a disturbing turn when Kayden McKenna's route leads her face to face 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 he could ever imagine.
No, you haven’t missed any reviews on this series. I am starting with book four. I know, not really where you are supposed to begin, but when this came up for review, I couldn’t resist.
This was my first book by Dani Pettrey, and it will not be the last. No, she is not the best mystery writer ever, but she is very good at weaving a compelling story and good mystery without a huge amount of gore or embarrassment. She also is very good at making situations realistic without making you blush. There was some discussion of spouses being unfaithful, but she never went into detail.
Kayden was just awesome. I really loved her from the first moment, even though she wasn’t a girly-girl. She had a lot of character and loved her family. Kayden’s and Jake’s relationship was fun to see develop. I really like their interaction. It was sweet, romantic, and wholesome all at the same time.
I think this is the first book that I have read set in Alaska. My conclusion? Alaska sounds breathtaking but far too cold. Wearing shorts when it is 60 out? Let me state right now I am so glad I was born in Texas. However, it does sound like Alaska has some lovely natural wonders that would be amazing to see.
I cannot wait to read more in this series. Pettrey is a talented author that does her research. I highly recommend this book to those who love mystery, mild romance, and good morals on the part of the main characters.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review. I was under no obligation to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are entirely my own.
