Off to a fantastic start! -- Cold Shot

Be sure to read to the end of the post for a chance to win some great prizes.  Deadline is March 7.

Dani Pettrey won me over with her awesome suspense series, Alaskan Courage.  She has definitely kept me as a fan with Cold Shot, the fantastic start to her Chesapeake Valor series.

I definitely agree with a comment I recently saw on facebook about Dani's books: "She has great heroes!"  Cold Shot is packed with an abundance of great heroes -- with some pretty awesome females in the mix as well.  Dani does such a dynamic job in her stories with just the right mix of suspense, romance and faith. Watching the characters and their relationships develop while in the middle of life and death experiences kept me engaged from multiple directions . . . and just basically not wanting to put the book down until the very end.  Even then, Dani taunted with new details to make the wait for the next story really hard to bear!

Fans of great faith-based romantic suspense should love Cold Shot. Thanks to Dani and her publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

About the Book:

In college, Griffin McCray and his four 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.


In the clip below, Dani shares her heart and some of the background for her stories.

Griffin just wants the case to go away, but when Finley discovers evidence pointing to the work of an expert sniper, the case connects them with FBI agent Declan Grey, and crime scene investigator Parker Mitchell, friends from a past Griffin’s tried to leave behind. Soon the reunited friends realize they’ll need to confront the darkest days in their shared history if they–and those they care about–are going to escape a downward spiral of crime, danger, and murder.
