Dani Pettrey Launches a New Romantic Suspense Series
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.
A fabulous read!! I couldn't put it down...yes, I read it in one day! I love your books Dani and I anxiously await your next one!!!

Review: Great start to this new series. This was an exciting story with some great twists along the way. This was a well written and exciting story. Griffin and Finley were fun and I am looking forward to future stories. This was an interesting story with a lot of loose ends with is Luke alive and who will Kate end up with. The new characters are exciting. I do hope that the next story are going to go to have the twists and turns this one did. There was so much going on and yet there was down time to regroup and give the reader a break. The storyline was very interesting with lots of surprises. There were several things going on that with the men’s youth connections and the murder they were trying to solve. For me it is always a hesitation to start a new series especially if the previous series was so good.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Bethany House for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

I love the ones that make me think!
As with all of Dani's books I've read, I so enjoyed getting to know the characters in depth. I also love being able to use my brain to get involved in the cases try to solve them myself. Great work Dani! Now on to the next!!!
