Review: Still Life by Dani Pettrey



About the book:
Someone Is Out There. Watching Her. Waiting.

Blacklisted in the photography business over a controversial shot, Avery Tate answered an ad for a crime-scene photographer. She expected to be laughed at, but crime-scene analyst Parker Mitchell hired her outright--and changed her life. But six months ago, when her feelings for Parker became too strong, she left his employ to sort out her heart.

Now, for the first time, Avery is facing the world that rejected her to attend the gallery opening of a photography exhibit for which her friend modeled. But the only image of her friend is a chilling photo of her posing as if dead--and the photographer insists he didn't take the shot. Worse, her friend can't be found, and so Avery immediately calls Parker for help.

As Avery, Parker, and their friends in law enforcement dig into the mystery, they find themselves face-to-face with a relentless and deadly threat.

My thoughts:

Still Life, book two in the Chesapeake Valor series, was so good and yet SO creepy at times. The opening scene to the story was disturbing and really made me invested into the story and feel for the characters.

I loved the romance. Because the characters already knew each other and had feelings for the other, it was interesting to see how or when those feelings would actually progress into a relationship.

The mystery was great. While I did not see the surprise ending/twist coming, it was very good and kept me in suspense.

All in all, I loved Still Life and recommend it if you enjoy romantic suspense. I don't think you need to read the first book in order to enjoy this one. Can't wait for the third story!!
