The final book in the Chesapeake Valor series gives fans what they have longed for with the story of Luke and Kate! The best in the series by far!
It’s been seven years since Luke Gallagher disappeared leaving all the people he cared about to wonder if they would ever see him again. He has been determined to stop a deadly terrorist before returning to the life he left behind. There is no way he can feel comfortable leaving the agency until the threat is neutralized. When the threat returns close to home, Luke knows he can’t do it alone anymore and turns to his friends to help stop what could be the deadliest terrorist attack in history. Kate Maxwell has been perfectly happy running her own private investigator firm, even if she has used it to help keep track of the one man she loved and lost, Luke. With Luke back in her life and working with her to track down a terrorist, they have more opportunities than she would have thought possible to be close again. It’s hard for her to forget the pain he caused her but they have bigger problems, like staying alive with the terrorist targeting them next.
I love when a series I’ve fallen in love with wraps up and leaves a smile on my face with the conclusion. I’m sure I’m like most fans of Dani Pettrey who have anxiously been awaiting the story of Luke and Katie. Each book in the series has had its own high points and this one brought everything full circle with all the characters we love. One of the best aspects of Dead Drift is finally finding out who killed Griffin’s sister! I loved the way that plotline played out, although I will say I wish the suspense would have gone just a little longer and not wrapped up so quickly. That’s just me though, I feel like our characters can always be in just a little more danger for just a little longer before things play out. It is hard to have so many characters and story lines and still be able to wrap things up without leaving loose ends, something Pettrey has become a pro at with her series. The Cheasapeake Valor series might have become one of my very favorites, not only for the characters but also for the way they connect with each other and bring the reader right into the story. I hate that this is the last book in the series but can’t wait to see what comes next for Pettrey. I recommend this book to fans of Romantic suspense and of authors like Dee Henderson, Lynette Eason and Susan May Warren.
