With All the Evidence Against Him, Only a Sister’s Trust Can Save Him Now

When her prodigal brother Reef’s return to Yancey, Alaska, is shattered by his arrest for murder, Piper McKenna is determined to protect him.

Deputy Landon Grainger loves the McKennas like family, but he’s also sworn to find the truth. And he knows those closest to you have the power to deceive you the most. With his sheriff pushing for a quick conviction, some unexpected leads complicate the investigation, and pursuing the truth puts Landon’s career in jeopardy.

When Piper launches her own investigation, Landon realizes he must protect her from herself-and whatever complications await as the two follow clues deep into Canada’s rugged backcountry. Not only does their long friendship seem to be turning into something more, but this dangerous case is becoming deadlier with each step.


People just keep dying. The worst part for Piper is the fact that her brother Reef has been arrested for murder.

At first a family friend who just happens to be a deputy isn’t totally convinced that Reef is innocent. What little evidence there is points to Reef, but for political reasons no other evidence is being sought. Landon takes a leave from his job in order to properly investigate the case.

Landon accompanies the McKennas as Piper and her family set out to prove Reef’s innocence. Traveling from Alaska to California and Canada, they follow up on every lead.

Unfortunately, they keep running into more bodies. Now they are running from threats on their lives.

In the middle of all this sparks begin to fly between Piper and Landon. Will they live long enough for a romance to bloom?

Although this is Book Two in the Alaskan Courage series, it is a good stand alone read. Now I want to read Book One, and I’m hoping Ms Pettrey doesn’t take very long getting Book Three to us.
