Really great story. A page turner that kept me guessing til the end. Shattered is a great combination of romance and suspense with good character development and a great plot. One of my favorites.
really enjoyed this book; great story with suspense and romance
Shattered by Kate Kelly is a great suspense – and yes, spicier than what I’m used to – but I must say that I enjoyed the story and I couldn’t wait to get to the end. Here’s the blurb: Cowboy Jay Rawlings is a former detective who feels responsible for not being able to save his sister’s life and can’t leave the past behind. But when Tess MacLean – a woman he once loved – comes back to his ranch with a killer on her tail, Jay must now face his past and look to the future – one that might include Tess. I like Kate’s style. The suspense begins within the first few pages and just keeps mounting. One moment I thought the villain was “this guy” because… but a few twists and turns lead me to think that it couldn’t be him therefore it must be… (Sorry no spoiler in this blog). Kate Kelly knows how to tell a suspense story and keeps you guessing until the last pages. I’m not a speed reader and can’t get to the end fast enough. In a book like this, I want to cheat and skip to the last page. This book is a page turner and I hated to put it down. It is action packed and delivers a good punch. For those who like a spicy suspense romance, you’re in for a treat. - Renee-Ann <><
SHATTERED is one of those books you hate to put down to go to work or go to sleep. I was grabbed right away by the H&h, Jay and Tess, and their chemistry is palpable. (I love me a brooding, wounded cop, and this one has retired to ranching life, so he's a cowboy, too!) The mystery kept me guessing to the very last moment. This is definitely an author to check out. Her voice and her unique turn of phrase really elevate her stories, in my opinion.
I loved this story. Not only was the mystery compelling, but I couldn't figure out who the villain was. The sense of family and country living added layers to the story that made it such a wonderful read. And for those readers who love sizzle, this book sizzles!
