Cold Shot is book one in Dani Pettrey's Chesapeke Valor series. This book starts out with Griffin McCray discovering vandals that have uncovered skeletal remains at the Gettysburg National Military Park where he works as a park ranger. Most of the remains in the area are from the Civil War-era, but these remains are not. Finley Scott is the forensic anthropologist that Griffin calls for her expertise. She discovers evidence that points to the work of an expert sniper. Some old friends of Griffin's are called in to help and the search for the killer is underway. There are things from the past that both Griffin and Finley must deal with as well.
I was super excited to see that Dani Pettrey had written a new series after reading her Alaskan Courage series. This book did not disappoint me! I really enjoyed reading it. I was a little confused at the synopsis on the back cover that said "Four best friends, and then one went missing" because it really isn't what the book is about. The back cover can be misleading because it really doesn't tell you what the book is about. I expected a little more background information on the four friends, but this is really a story about the search for a killer and the danger that the characters encounter during the search. The characters also have to come to terms with some of the things that have happened in the past. All in all, I thought it was a good read, and I recommend it to those who like suspense novels with some romance mixed in.
