Book Review: Still Life

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 Reflections:

Still Life is book two in the Chesapeake Valor series. Though not necessary to read these books in order I would highly recommend you read book one "Cold Shot" as it will make the threads of these stories come together seamlessly.

This novel packs a punch, it is spine-tinglingly suspenseful and high on the creepy scale. The author Dani Pettrey has weaved a fanciful tale with this one. We delve into the mind of the villain, his twisted thinking had me flipping pages madly. My husband thought I was speed reading!

I simply adored Avery and Parker! The relationship between these two seemed real to life and the chemistry just right without being over done. The troubled pasts both Avery and Parker experienced held such heartbreak, and pain, yet Pettrey fleshes out the story to create a realistic and moving progression.

This is a very memorable, fast-paced tale, I am anxiously awaiting book three, "Blind Spot," set to be released in October 2017.

If you are looking to read a novel that has it all, this may be just right for you!
