Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey-book review


I missed buying Cold Shot when it first came out, but decided to spend birthday money to get it this month. I read the Alaskan Courage series a few months ago and LOVED it! I couldn’t wait to read Dani Pettrey‘s new series. Cold Shot, the first book in the Chesapeake Valor series, was well worth the wait.


Griffin McKay has a past that he can’t forget. He lost a loved one, his friendships were destroyed, and then a case he was working on recently fell apart.He is hoping that his new, quiet job as a park ranger in Gettysburg is just the thing he needs. It is, until a body is found, and not a civil war body either.

Forensic anthropologist Finley Scott gets called into the case. She hasn’t had an easy few years. Getting pushed into a case with Griffin McKay isn’t helping.

Even though they have both had adventures, this one will be a whole new experience.


I loved the idea of teamwork Dani Pettrey brings into this book. Every character brought something different to their team. Each one had a different job, using every single ability and talent to solve the mystery.

This book was about letting go of the past, finding the courage to forgive, and trusting that God has a plan, no matter how hard it may be.

Dani Pettrey has a very unique writing style. She does a really good job of building up the family in every book she writes. Her families support each other in good and bad times, learn to overcome challenges together. There are serious and funny moments in every book she writes. Her characters are strong and solid.

I loved this book, and can’t wait to read the second one!
