Still Life by Dani Pettrey

Still Life by Dani Pettrey

Work hits too close to home for crime scene photographer Avery Tate when her best friend disappears. The only lead is a chilling photo of her—apparently dead. As Avery, her ex-boss Parker, and his friends in law enforcement dig into the case, she’s forced to confront her feelings for Parker when they come face-to-face with a dangerous criminal.

Here's my review of this enjoyable suspense read:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Dani Pettrey and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Still Life" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Avery Tate is a gifted, but blacklisted, photographic artist who quit her job as a crime scene photographer and her boss, Parker Mitchell, so she could sort out her growing feelings for him.  Now she finds herself supporting a friend in the photography world that turned its back on her, that friend is missing and there’s a chilling photo of her posed as if she were dead.  So Avery seeks out Parker’s help to find her missing friend.

“Still Life” is book two in the Chesapeake Valor series by Dani Pettrey, but can easily be read as a stand-alone novel.  Pettrey is a gifted suspense and romance author who has crafted an edge-of-your-seat, stay-up-way-past-bedtime story.  The chemistry between these two leading characters is not the main focus of the story, yet the relationship creates a mild undercurrent to the story.

I’m looking forward to the third offering in the series, Blind Spot, due to hit shelves in October!
