Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey

In college, Griffin McCray and his three best friends had their lives planned out. Griffin and Luke Gallagher would join the Baltimore PD. Declan Gray would head to the FBI and Parker Mitchell would go on to graduate school as a crime scene analyst. But then Luke vanished before graduation and their world--and friendships--crumbled.

Now Griffin is a park ranger at Gettysburg, having left life as a SWAT-team sniper when a case went bad. The job is mostly quiet--until the day he captures two relic hunters uncovering skeletal remains near Little Round Top. Griffin just wants the case to go away, but charming forensic anthropologist Finley Scott determines that the body is modern--a young social justice lawyer missing since spring--and all evidence points to the work of an expert sniper. When FBI agent Declan Gray takes 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 murder that crosses continents.

Cold Shot left me wishing I hadn’t waited so long to pick up a novel by Dani Pettrey - and also knowing it won’t be the last one I choose to read. I absolutely loved it, and I’m sure Dani Pettrey’s fans will be quite pleased with this suspenseful start to her new series, Chesapeake Valor, too.

When a body is uncovered in Gettysburg, park ranger Griffin McCray and forensic anthropologist Finley Scott begin to investigate the murder and discover a lot of danger awaiting them. Two great characters who work together well and have sweet chemistry, Griffin and Finley find and follow the clues with help from Griffin’s friends (who I really hope to see again in future books) through nail-biting twists and turns that kept me guessing until an unexpected and satisfying conclusion. 

With a marvelous blend of mystery, danger, drama, and romance, this fast-paced and action-packed book would not let me put it down. Dani Pettrey’s Cold Shot is a perfect read for readers of romantic suspense - I highly recommend it.

Thanks to Bethany House, I received a copy of Cold Shot and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
