This first book in Dani Pettrey’s new series, Cold Shot, is a winner. I hope she writes the next book fast! Though Cold Shot is a self-contained story, it’s also the beginning of the next one—or two. It’s a suspense-filled mystery in a mystery with another mystery on the side.
Now who can resist that?
In this first book, we meet Griffin McCray and two of his best friends from childhood, friends he’s worked hard to separate himself from because they remind him of painful events of the past. Griffin enjoys his quiet life as a park ranger at Gettysburg—until grave robbers uncover a body that doesn’t come from the Civil War. Both of Griffin’s friends are called in to help solve the crime, forcing Griffin to face the past he’s tried to leave behind.
Because Finley Scott, a forensic anthropologist, has been doing research of her own at Gettysburg, she is called in to help with the case. But when she finds her life in danger, she must confront issues from her past as well.
Griffin, Finley, Declan, Parker, Kate, and Avery are a few of the great characters that readers meet in this book and will get to follow through the series. You won’t want to miss this one!
I thank Bethany House Publishers for sending me a complimentary copy in exchange for this review.
