Cold Shot Sweapstakes and Other Fun stuff

Enter the COLD SHOT Sweepstakes from Author Dani Pettrey
I have been a fan of Dani Pettrey's book since I first read Submerged from the Alaskan Courage Series. She is an amazing and talented author, definitely God-gifted. I am inspired that a fellow homeschool mom can write such incredible novels. (And a just teensy-weensy bit jealous - grin)

When I was once again invited to share Dani's newest series and the first book - Cold Shot - I was delighted to accept, because this is one author I am happy to back up and promote!

Today, I am simply sharing Dani's Cold Shot Sweepstakes , as well as some fun "stuff" from Dani's website that accompanies the book. The information is below and easy to enter, just click on the link and hop on over to place your entry.

Book Summary:
Get your copy of COLD SHOT by Author Dani Pettrey!In COLD SHOT, the first book of author Dani Pettrey’s brand new Chesapeake Valor series, park ranger Griffin McCray and forensic anthropologist Finley Scott uncover buried remains near the Civil War battleground of Little Round Top. There’s only one problem: the bones aren’t Civil War-era.
Griffin just wants the case to go away, but when Finley discovers evidence pointing to the work of an expert sniper, the case connects them with FBI agent Declan Grey, and crime scene investigator Parker Mitchell, friends from a past Griffin’s tried to leave behind.
Soon the reunited friends realize they’ll need to confront the darkest days in their shared history if they–and those they care about–are going to escape a downward spiral of crime, danger, and murder.
The Fun Stuff:
I am including in this post her Pinterest board, and a link to the Dossier Page where you can read about the characters and study their profiles. For me, these are the items that bring the book to life. Dani will take you on a video tour of the Chesapeake area to familiarize you with the surroundings pertaining to the story.
