Cold Shot: A Book Review
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.

Dani Pettrey has been a favorite mystery romance writer of mine since her debut novel and I was super excited to read Cold Shot as it started a new series! I absolutely loved it. The characters were very well developed and the action started from the very first pages, and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout reading this book. I found myself reading late into the night to read this gem. Seriously, if you haven't had the opportunity to read Pettrey's book, you need to! You will not be disappointed. The suspense level was very high, it was very intriguing and I look forward to seeing how all the characters develop in the rest of the series. What I absolutely love about this book is that proceeds from the sales of Cold Shot will go to rescuing people from human trafficking. That is absolutely awesome!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
