Award-winning author Dani Pettrey concludes her romantic suspense series set in coastal Maryland, about childhood friends with careers in law enforcement.
In Dead Drift, when Luke Gallagher vanished seven years ago, leaving the woman he loved, private investigator Kate Maxwell behind, with no answers, only questions. Now he is back to help capture a terrorist and rekindle his relationship with Kate. Can they stop the terrorist’s plot before it is too late? Is there a future for them after they catch the terrorist?
Meanwhile, Griffin and Finley continue to investigate his sister Jenna’s murder, uncovering a string of cases with similarities in several states. Can they catch the killer behind his sister’s murder and finally put the case to rest when others haven’t been successful?
Pettrey pens characters with strong personalities and real flaws, making it easier for readers cares about. As always, the faith element is evident, not preachy, and relationships are clean (appropriate for high school readers). Pettrey creates an ensemble of characters readers enjoy. When these characters from earlier novels reappear, the reader is delighted to catch up and continue their storyline. The violence is appropriate to the story, much like crime dramas one view on TV. As always, the plausible plot is action-packed romantic suspense at its finest. The reader will be satisfied at how the series ends and the questions are answered.
Watch for her new series Coastal Guardians coming in 2019.
