About this author

Dani Pettrey is a wife, homeschooling mom and author. She feels blessed to write inspirational romantic suspense because it incorporates so many things she loves–the thrill of adventure, nail-biting suspense, the deepening of one’s faith and plenty of romance. She’s a huge fan of dark chocolate, is always in search of the best iced mocha and her dream is to one day own a little cottage on a remote stretch of beach. She and her husband reside in Maryland with their daughters, son in law, and adorable grandson. Visit her web site at www.DaniPettrey.com!

Submerged- Book 1 in the Alaskan Courage Series (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 15, 2013 05:02PM
Description: A sabotaged flight. Two murdered divers. A single clue—a grainy image of sunken treasure. Dive Rescue Captain Cole McKenna has never worked a case like this, but who he’s working with may prove more dangerous than the assignment. It’s been a lifetime since Bailey mangled his heart. Now she’s back in town and he needs her expertise to track down the illusive treasure. Professor of Russian Studies Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey again, but when her beloved aunt dies, she has no choice. Her plan of attack is simple: return for Agnes’s funeral, get the family business ready for a quick sale, and then put Yancey and all the heartbreaking memories wrapped up in it behind her for good. Cole walking through her door, asking for her help on a murder investigation, wasn’t part of her plan, neither are the feelings he’s resurrecting—feelings best left dead. Bailey agrees to help for the sake of the victims, and travels with Cole across Alaska’s rugged terrain and deep beneath its coastal waters. As the case escalates, so do their feelings for one another. Unfortunately, not everyone is willing to let go of the past and just when Bailey thinks she can’t take it any longer, the case shifts in a new and extremely personal direction, fastening her in for its duration. Racing against the clock and a rising body count, Cole and Bailey fight to find the treasure and uncover the hidden history at the root of it all. But will they be too late?
Shattered- Book 2 in the Alaskan Courage Series (Select)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 26, 2012 02:39PM
Description: Piper McKenna couldn’t be more thrilled that her prodigal brother, Reef, has returned to Yancey, Alaska, after five years. But her happiness is short-lived when Reef appears at her house covered in blood. A fellow snowboarder has been killed. Despite the evidence, Reef swears he’s innocent. And Piper believes 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 the sheriff pushing for a quick conviction, pursuing the truth in this case could mean the end of Landon’s career. As Piper wages her own search, the two head deep into Canada’s rugged backcountry–and unexpected complications. Not only does their long friendship seem to be turning into something more, but the search for answers is becoming deadlier with each step.

“It's your job to tell others about Jesus, about what He's done in your life and what He can do in theirs, but you can never make someone believe, no matter how strong or pure your intentions. Salvation is between that person and God,' Piper said.”
Dani Pettrey, Stranded

“Because God doesn't promise the way will be easy-far from it-but He promises to carry us through, to give us the courage and grace we need when we need it. He most often doesn't change the circumstances; He changes us”
Dani Pettrey, Silenced

“Pride wears a lot of different masks. Some are easier to see than others.”

message 5: by Danie

Danie Yeah well I want you to be popular as a writer so got to start some were and I think a library is a good way.

message 4: by Dani

Dani Pettrey Aw, that's so sweet of you. Hope it works out :)

message 3: by Danie

Danie Ya I know. I wrote to the librarian to see what can be done about it, so we shall see.

message 2: by Dani

Dani Pettrey That's too bad, Danie. You can always ask your librarian to order Submerged. Sometimes when you request a book, they'll get it in :)

message 1: by Danie

Danie Hi Dani,

I want you to know that I can't wait to read your books but my library in San Marcos in California does not have any of your books
