Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey

Do you enjoy murder mysteries with a little romance thrown in? Then make sure to check out this newest series by Dani Pettrey, Chesapeake Valor. This first book, Cold Shot, was a thrilling read to say the least.  Read below to find out what made this book so great!

From the Back Cover:

Four best friends, and then one went missing...
In college, Griffin McCray and his three best friends had their lives planned out.  Griffin and Luke Gallagher would join the Baltimore Police Department, Declan Grey would head to the FBI, and Parker Mitchell would study to become a crime scene analyst.  But then Luke vanished before graduation and their world--and friendships--crumbled.
Now years later, Griffin has left the police and his friendships behind.  Still trying to forget a case that went bad when he was a SWAT team sniper, he's living a quiet life as a park ranger at Gettysburg.  Quiet until skeletal remains are uncovered near Little Round Top--and they aren't Civil War-era.
Griffin just wants the case to go away, but charming forensic anthropologist Finley Scott discovers evidence pointing to the work of an expert sniper.  When FBI agent Declan Grey steps in to take over the case, past and present collide.  Griffin soon realizes he'll need to confront some of the darkest days of his life if he--and those he cares about--are going to escape a downward spiral of crime, danger, and murder.

My Review:
I was thrilled to be able to get my hands on Dani Pettrey's newest book.  I loved her Alaskan Courage series and was looking forward to reading Cold Shot.  This newest series is just as exciting and is a thrilling adventure from cover to cover. I like how she gradually introduces you to each character not telling their whole story right up front.  It's like pieces of a puzzle that come together gradually and finally at the end you see the whole picture.  Although, this book has surely added mysteries that aren't solved in this first book and will lead to the next 3 books.  I appreciated the way the author communicated the faith of her characters. It was not forced, but seemed very natural throughout the book.  I enjoyed reading about the characters in this first book, and look forward to continuing their stories in the books to come.

***I received this free book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
