Silenced by Dani Pettrey
Kayden McKenna, whom we have met in previous stories in this series, is a rock climber. She finds a body on a climb and it becomes quickly obvious that it was not an accident. Kayden's friend, Jake, is made a deputy by the local sheriff and together Jake and Kayden take on the case.
This is a book full of suspense but also full of Kayden's delightful family whom we have met in books 1-3. The family and the location on a small island in Alaska make this all the more interesting.
I am totally a fan but I didn't find this book as well put together as some of the previous ones. For instance, the author puts some suspicion on some of the suspects and never really explains why they were acting suspicious later when the case is solved (especially the female owner of one of the climbing supply stores). Also, I thought that the climbing death and the threats to Kayden would somehow be tied together at some point and they weren't. About 3/4 was through the book, the climbing death was solved and pretty much dropped. So there are two totally separate mysteries going on in the book.
I received this book from Bethany for purposes of reviewing it. All opinions expressed here are my own and I have not been compensated for reviewing the book.
Looking forward to the next book in the series! These books are wonderful!
