Dani Pettrey has written several books in a series called Alaskan Courage. I've read two of the previous books, and I was always captivated. I've never been to Alaska, but it's been on our short list for many years.
"Silenced" continues the adventures of the McKenna family. Having read the first two books, I was already familiar with the McKenna family. However, even if you have never read any of the previous books, you can jump right in and become involved with the McKenna's and their unique place in the Alaska horizon. "Silenced" is considered a romantic suspense thriller, and Ms Pettrey does not leave you wanting. As the events became unravelled, I was riveted by the untangling of the web. The strengths and weaknesses of the characters allowed me to glimpse into their hearts and lives. A mark of a good author.
Not only would I recommend "Silenced", I would also encourage you to read Ms. Pettrey other books,
"Submerged", "Shattered", and "Stranded". You won't be disappointed.
