I love this fourth book in the Alaskan Courage series. The McKenna family has been a joy to get to know through these four books. I have come to care for each family member, and though I look forward to the final book, I will be sad to see them go, after Ive finished reading it.
The mystery and suspense is exciting. The plot has many twists and turns, making the book a page-turner. It really held my interest, as the antagonist is quite diabolical. The romantic thread is progressive and satisfying.
I highly recommend you read the whole series in order. Its great!
Silence is the fourth book in the Alaskan Courage Series. This is Kayden and Jakes Story.
When Kayden and Jake take a vacation day to do some rock climbing they discover a dead body wedged into a crevice. When the McKennas begin to investigate, they inadvertently put Kaydens life in danger. As her family rallies around her, Jake steps up and puts his training to use.
This is the book that we find out all about Jake and his past. We discover what drove him to Alaska and why he has carefully hidden his past.
I really enjoyed getting to know Jake and his struggle to come to terms with his past, as well as his growing feelings for Kayden. Kayden, however, I struggled with. From the first book she seemed too hard for my taste, however in reflection I know understand why she was that way, but at the time it still difficult.
One of the things that has stuck with me about this book, wasnt the plot or characters, it was the theme of forgiveness that ran through the entire book. Both Jake and Kayden have issues that they need Gods help to forgive others as well as themselves. I was wonderful to have that unfold throughout the entire book.
Although this book was not my favorite in the series, I found it be as well written and well researched as the previous books. Definitely worth the time to read.
This was my first Dani Pettrey book and I enjoyed it very much! It was full of romance, mystery, adventure and faith. The characters were believable and the description vivid. Every time I thought the conflict was coming close to a resolution, Dani threw something else in there to surprise me. Although this was book four in the series, I had no trouble following along with the characters and their ties to each other. Can't wait for Dani's next book!
Woah_ This book is an absolute thriller! I seriously could not put it down. Dani has honestly lifted this already fantastic series to even greater heights with Silenced. The story and the characters are completely captivating. Kayden's struggle with her fears is so easy to relate to. Most of us have been there or know what it's like to be afraid. I really admired Kayden's inner strength and the way she developed in the book. And Jake, honestly what can I say? He is truly one of the most remarkable male characters I have ever come across in a book. He has been knocked down many times, yet he does not give up. You can't help but be full of admiration for him and how the hard times have shaped him into an even better man - a true hero. Silenced is such an uplifting book that truly inspires you and has you cheering the characters on. Add in an evil villain who is determined to have revenge and fingernail-biting suspense and you are all set for another thrilling adventure with the McKenna clan. Can't wait to find out Reef and Kirra's story in the next exciting instalment!
