Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey

The start of a new series in this case is good! 

Four best friends had brilliant lives and careers ahead of them. Then, Luke vanished, and with him, all their lives took separate roads and their friendships languished and were thought to be broken. 

Griffin has been in war, now he isn't a SWAT team member anymore. He just works as a park ranger on an age old battle ground, Gettysburg. His rather numbing routine changes when he finds two guys trying to steal relics of war. These guys dug up a body, but the body isn't from the war, it's current. 

Left with out a choice, the top people in the fields they are in are his old friends. Now they are all back together, and none of them are ok. Even so they have to work to solve who is dumping bodies before more people die, especially one of them. 

The romance is ok, but the strength lies in the realistic issues from all the main characters and the strong theme of forgiveness. I really liked this book. My copy came from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.

Four Best Friends. 
And Then One Went Missing . . . 

In college, Griffin McCray and his three best friends had their lives planned out. Griffin and Luke Gallagher would join the Baltimore Police Department, Declan Grey would head to the FBI, and Parker Mitchell would study to become a crime scene analyst. But then Luke vanished before graduation and their world--and friendships--crumbled. 

Now years later, Griffin has left the police and his friendships behind. Still trying to forget a case that went bad when he was a SWAT team sniper, he's living a quiet life as a park ranger at Gettysburg. Quiet until skeletal remains are uncovered near Little Round Top--and they aren't Civil War-era. 

Griffin just wants the case to go away, but charming forensic anthropologist Finley Scott discovers evidence pointing to the work of an expert sniper. When FBI agent Declan Grey steps in to take over the case, past and present collide. Griffin soon realizes he'll need to confront some of the darkest days of his life if he--and those he cares about--are going to escape a downward spiral of crime, danger, and murder.
