This is Pettrey’s exciting follow-up to the adventure-filled Submerged (2012). Readers rejoin the McKenna family as they search for the real killer of the woman their brother, whose innocence looks dubious, is accused of murdering. Piper McKenna knows her brother is innocent and will do anything it takes to prove it. A family friend, Deputy Landon Grainger, will do anything it takes to protect Piper, so the two set off on a harrowing journey to track the true murderer. With the family backing them up from Yancey, Alaska, Piper and Landon set out from western Canada, traveling down to California and then back up to Oregon on their quest for the truth. Despite the mounting danger, the two start to question their feelings for each other. Will their search be for love as well as for justice? With the drama of an Alaskan winter as her setting, Pettrey once again blends suspense, romance, and mystery into a fast-paced story that will keep readers on their toes. --Carolyn Richard
From the Back Cover
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.

The law enforcement component was almost laughable. the police chief was over the top stupid. Even when a case seems cut and dried, the police still investigate. If for no other reason than to build their case.
Now the Spoiler Alert:
The part that bothered me the most, however, was the mystery. It started out strong and kept me reading. However, when they got to the heart of the mystery, I wanted to scream. The author needed to do much more research. She should've at least consulted a Diabetic Educator, Pharmacist, Nurse, or Doctor. She also needed to speak to someone in the computer industry. It's almost like she forgot to do any research.
The premise that a microchip for tracking caused insulin to overheat might be plausible. I don't know. However, attributing many deaths to overheated insulin isn't accurate. Most diabetics check their glucose level after taking insulin. If it's still high, they would take more, call the doctor, or go to the ER. The idea the microchip "tainted" insulin would leave a residue in the patient clearly shows that the author didn't understand how diabetes and insulin usage works.
Then, there's the fact that the man who "discovered" the problem "made" a microchip at his desk. In a two second search of Google, I found all of the information on how microchips are made. You cannot simply assemble one at your desk. It takes a multi-billion dollar plant.
The book wasn't bad, but not nearly as good as the first in the series. I had trouble suspending all reality in order for it to make sense.
We also get a peak into Gage and his past - along with his feelings toward God.
The mystery was so well done! It had twists and danger and suspense. I like the way Dani Pettrey throws in just a little bit from the killer's point of view. It gets the heart racing and makes me wonder and worry even more. Knowing that the killer is watching adds a whole new dimension to the story.
I am absolutely loving this series!!!
ok on to this book itself. I think this is my favourite type of story; friends for life suddenly realise that there could be more... that there IS more to their relationship. Always made better by a guy that's pining away for the girl. I loved how this mystery wasn't straight forward to figure out who dun it. I think I want to visit Alaska now it sounds like a very beautiful place.
I have read 3 books from this series and this book is my favourite one so far. Thank you for an awesome book Dani!
At the beginning of this book, we find Landon drowning his sorrows. He loves Piper McKenna desperately but thinks she'll never feel the same way. Then a murder happens and the prime suspect is her brother, Reef. Landon feels like he's part of that family and is worried how Piper will take the news. He's a "play by the rules" person and likes to be logical all the time. He went by his feelings in the past and was burned. He likes to be absolutely sure of things before committing to a decision.
Piper is the opposite. She runs on feelings and what she feels for Landon is quickly evolving into love. She feels torn, because she's trying to find the real killer and sorting through her feelings for Landon. He keeps giving her mixed signals, but they're going to have to talk through it eventually.
The murdered woman had a very tangled past, so finding her killer won't be easy. The search takes them all over the place, including Canada. The plot has a lot of twists and turns, making this an easy read. I finished it in two days!
I love this writer's style. She sets up the relationship between Gage and Darcy for book 3, Stranded, quite nicely, but you're going to be okay if you read them out of order, like I did. The author has a great way of making sure the stories are connected without penalizing you if you skipped a book.
