Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: July 3, 2018

Seven years. That’s how long Luke Gallagher has been chasing terrorist Khaled Ebeid. That’s also how long it’s been since he’s seen Kate Maxwell, the girl he had loved since they first became friends in high school. While not seeing his family and other friends in seven years hurt, not seeing Kate left him hollow. Now the threat is on US soil, and he not only needs the help of his friends, but he needs Kate’s skill as a hacker to help him find, and neutralize the threat before thousands die.

Kate has felt betrayed for seven years. She’s never stopped looking for Luke, positive he’s still alive. She can’t believe he would have chosen to leave the life they’d planned, but when he walks back into her life, and announces that there is an imminent terrorist attack coming, and he needs her and the rest of her law enforcement friends’ help to catch those responsible, her anger and astonishment compete with the love she still feels for him. As they work together, will they survive the nearly constant barrage of assassins to follow the breadcrumbs and shut down the attack?

This book was like reading two separate suspense novels in one. The main story focused on Luke and Kate and their hunt for Ebeid. The secondary story followed Griffin & Finley McCray, as they searched for the man who killed his sister, Jenna eight years ago. When Griffin learns from a PI that there are more girls who were murdered in much the same way as Jenna, he realizes that he may have a serial killer on his hands. When the PI is murdered before Griffin can talk to him, he’s sure of it. The secondary story, was actually continued throughout this series, and gives the characters in the books their main reason to be in law enforcement.

This was a fantastic conclusion to the Chesapeake Valor series. Luke and Kate prove that obstacles are just something to find your way around. I loved that the characters from the first three books all had active roles in this one, and that we got to see that the matches made in those first books are still going strong. Be prepared when you start this, because once it gets rolling, you won’t want to stop reading until you’re done!

Rated PG: Lots of death and destruction here. Probably even verges on PG-13.
