Chesapeake Valor #1
By Dani Pettrey
Griffin McCray thought he could leave the pain of the past behind him, but when non-Civil War era remains are found at Gettysburg he's about to have a reunion with his past.
Finley Scott's archaeological dig was the last place one would expect to be a crime scene. But it is and someone wants to keep it a cold case forever. And they'll do anything to keep it that way, even murder.
Years ago Griffin's world was forever altered fracturing the friendships of his youth. But this case is about to draw them together again. Drawing on their unique skill sets with various branches of law-enforcement Griffin, Declan Gray, and Parker Mitchell are about to team up with Finley Scott. Can they determine not only the identity of their victim but also the motive? The deeper they dig the more disturbing this case becomes.
Fans of Dani's Alaskan Courage series will enjoy this change of scene with the debut of her newest series Chesapeake Valor. The ties that bind in this series are friendship rather than family but these ties are just as strong. These are characters that are likable and ones with whom one can empathize as they each still deal with the loss of a good friend - Luke Gallagher. But who is Luke Gallagher? And why did he disappear all those years ago? What truths will be revealed?
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.

About the Book:
In college, Griffin McCray and his four 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.
