From the write-up, I anticipated this one to be romance-focused whilst having an investigation as the setting but in Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey I got so much more! The FBI and CIA are working against the clock to stop a terrorist attack of monumental proportions and, there is a second case, a serial killer is on the loose! Two great cases with a team with a fantastic skill set keeps the pace swift and its full of action! The romance is there, it’s realistic and convincing! Christianity is interspersed throughout and beautifully handled! I haven’t read the three previous books in the series but I will be shortly! Whilst I am keen to get to know the other characters better, I still thoroughly enjoyed it! It’s a five out of five and highly recommended!
From the back cover:
Burning debris littering the ground . . . smoke pluming in the acrid air . . . this is just the beginning if he fails. Seven years ago, operative Luke Gallagher vanished to become part of an elite team set on capturing a deadly terrorist. When Luke returns to face those he left behind, their help becomes his only hope of stopping his target’s latest threat of an attack that would shake America to its core. Private investigator Kate Maxwell never stopped loving or looking for Luke after he disappeared. But she also never imagined he left her or his life by choice. Now he’s back, and together they must unravel a twisting thread of secrets, lies, and betrayal, all while on the brink of a biological disaster. Will they and their love survive, or will Luke and Kate become the terrorist’s next mark?
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Bethany House Publishers through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
