Silenced, Dani Pettrey

This review is part of a book review program with Bethany House. The Bethany House book review program is simple; I request a book from the links they send me via email, then after I've read it I write a review on this blog post and a retailer's site (such as Amazon, B&N, etc.) If this sounds like something that interests you, you can get more information and/or sign up here.

When Kayden McKenna discovers a dead climber during a day of rock climbing, she immediately suspects foul play. And when the case is turned over to the town's already overburdened sheriff, he turns to former investigator Jake Westin. With his past finally revealed, Jake thinks he's ready to take on a new case, especially if it will keep him close to Kayden.

But it seems the killer knows they're on the right track and strange things start happening again in Yancey, Alaska. For Jake, this brings back fears that his world will once again put the ones he loves in danger. But things have only just gotten started and the path to the truth leads them to a truth far worse than either could ever imagine. 

So despite my less-than-stellar review of Dani Pettrey's last book, I really liked this one. It hooked me from the beginning and kept my interest piqued. The characters were believable and the dialogue was better. 

Pettrey's voice still shines through in her work (I love it, so thank goodness for that!) and I'd recommend this book to anyone that likes a good puzzle, mystery, thriller, etc. On a 1-10 low/high scale, I'd rate this book about a 7.
