Dead Drift, the fourth and concluding book of Dani Pettrey’s Chesapeake Valor Series leaves a person wondering how many attempts can be made on one’s life before one succeeds. The story gets started right away and delves into the long-awaited story of Luke and Kate.
Luke has been undercover for years trying to stop terrorists and keep America safe. As his story unfolds, it makes one grateful for all that is done behind the scenes to preserve and protect freedom. This book really brings to light all of the sacrifices these oft unsung heroes make.
Readers will be pleased to allow a bit of romance to reduce the intensity of the story. Sometimes it’s nice to ignore the outside world and focus on the moment. In the case of Luke and Kate, those moments are incredibly fleeting and much too far apart. There is plenty of action and danger to keep readers from getting too comfortable.
