Series: Chesapeake Valor
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.

Rosa5 Stars Out Of 5Dani Pettrey did it again, another great suspense!August 27, 2016RosaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love Dani Pettrey's books! Each one I read is better than the last.
This book is action packed from the first chapter.
A body is discovered, an investigation is begun, and then you're right in the middle of a fast-paced adventure.
Finley and Griffin, the two main characters, are determined at the beginning that they don't want to be in a relationship, and yet, they cannot deny their immediate attraction. The romance happens quickly in this book!
The conclusion was a surprise, it kept me guessing until the very end.
I found this book very intriguing, and can't wait to read the next in the series!
TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Dani Pettrey does it again!August 1, 2016TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5So, at first I wasn't too sure about a Dani Pettrey novel set outside of Alaska, I really hated saying goodbye to the McKenna clan, but she IS one of my favorite romantic suspense authors and I couldn't imagine not reading her newest book... Well, even though Baltimore and the Cheaspeake are about as far as you can get from Alaska, except for maybe Florida or Hawaii, Cold Shot is now one of my favorite suspense novels of the year. It was great! I could hardly put it down and if I hadn't finally been forced to get some sleep I would probably have finished it in one sitting. I immersed myself in the world of danger and suspense, happily engrossed in trying to figure out the killer or killers before time ran out.
Cold Shot is a great start to what I know will prove to be another wonderfully thrilling series from one of the best authors in Christian suspense. Dani Pettrey's talent for writing engaging characters, dramatic settings, and of course chilling mysteries, is unmistakable. I quickly devoured Cold Shot but I'm not sure just how patiently I can wait for book 2 in the Chesapeake Valor series. Oh, the sweet agony of being a bookworm...

Jess88Age: Under 18Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Awesome!June 17, 2016Jess88Age: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I've been hooked on Dani Pettreys books ever since I read SUBMERGED! I was so sad when the alaskan courage series ended. But thankfully she started this awesome new series!! Cold shot is a very promising start of something new! I love how the main characters remind me of Booth and Brennen from the TV show "BONES" I had to wonder if she's a fan?! :-) I also love the setting! Very interesting! The plot was great! I love that I was kept guessing who did it? until the very end. My only complaint is that I thought Finley should've had more input into the investigation then she did. She is a forensic anthropologist after all. I thought she would've been finding way more clues from the body than she did. All in all this was a great book! And I can't wait to read more about these characters!

ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Dani Pettrey writes another nail-biting, edge of your seat romantic suspense with a deep message.June 7, 2016ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am absolutely, irrevocably in love with this series and this is only the first book! I can't believe I have to wait until 2017 for the next one! While the epilogue wrapped up Griffin and Finley's story quite nicely, I was shocked at the revelation Kate threw at us at the end. Dani Pettrey shines once again in her masterful descriptions and plot lines. Suspense abounds along with a lot of faith and romance in this exciting story.
I felt at home in the Chesapeake area with Finley, Griffin, Declan, Parker, Avery, and Kate. I loved Finley. She is strong in an understated way. She is smart and sassy. She dealt admirably with parts of her past, but as we all do, had to work really hard to really let go. Griffin is also a strong character in an understated way. His accomplishments make him shine, yet he doesn't allow them to give him a big head. I would have liked to see more sparring between the two characters. Their interactions before their feelings were revealed amused me. Griffin's past with Parker, Declan, and Kate made for an intersting side story, and I can't wait to see their relationships continue to heal.
Both characters grapple with coming to terms with their past. They both endured ugly, hard things. But they both had to realize that "God brings beauty and light to the darkest places" and that He can bring "beauty out of brokenness." Once they both accepted this realization, they could fully embrace what God brought to them: each other.
Overall, I am hooked on this series already. I am eagerly anticipating the release of book 2. Dani Pettrey writes another nail-biting, edge of your seat romantic suspense with a deep message.
