    This review was written for Still Life #2.
    I really enjoyed this second book in the Chesapeake Valor series. I felt more connected with the characters than in the first book in this series; Cold Shot.

    Still Life is a treat for mystery lovers. I hadnt figured out who murdered Skylar. Only when the author intended the reader to find out, I had my aha moment. Parker and Avery are a nice couple, but they have to overcome obstacles before they can get serious.

    Theres another investigation going on as well, lead by Declan. The reader gets to know Declan well enough to look forward to the next book in the Chesapeake Valor series where no doubt Declans love story will be told while working a case.

    An interesting and suspenseful read that kept my attention throughout the story. Nicely done, Dani.

    Still Life is Dani Pettrey's second book in the Chesapeake Valor series and it is another winner.

    When you find your favorite authors and their new book comes out, you just know it will be good. Dani writes some of the absolute best romantic suspense stories that are printed.

    He glances around what had become a dumping ground by the river's edge. Dark, silent...deserted. Perfect.

    Popping the trunk of his car, he hefted the heavy garment bag out and trudged through the mud, the foul odor of rotting garbage and brackish water pungent on the wind lashing his face. A thunderstorm was brewing, churning the humid air. Lightening pierced the murky sky.

    He found a fitting spot and tossed her away like the trash she was.

    What a prologue that entices you to find out who, what, when where and why. That i where Avery Tate comes in. She had been a photographer that was blacklisted by a controversial shot. When she answers am ad for a crime scene photographer but was hired to her surprise. She also became smitten over Parker Mitchell who hired her so she left the business. When she attends a photography exhibit that her friend modeled for, she is surprised to see her picture, but the picture looks like she is posing and also dead. Now for Avery to find her friend and enlists Parker for help in finding her. Where do they start and who can they trust in the photography business?

    As I stated in the beginning, Dani Pettrey is a superb writer that hooks you in with believable characters and their struggles in life along with plots that keep you guessing as who the culprit is and how will it all end.

    The only sad thing is, I have to wait till October for book 3!

    Thanks to Bethany House Publishers for a free copy of this book just for my honest opinion.

    I enjoy reading suspenseful fiction every now and then, so I was happy to have the chance to read and review Still Life.

    This book mixes the story of a couple falling in love with a mystery surrounding the disappearance of the woman's best friend.

    Who the book is for:

    This book is something that any lovers of suspense will enjoy. It is also something that fans of romances will like.

    What I liked:

    The story of this book is unique.

    The story is written in a way that kept me wanting to read more.

    There is a subtle message of healing from the past and moving on in the book.

    The characters are really interesting and likable once you get into the book, but...

    What I didnt like:

    ...it took me quite some time to get into the book and understand who was who and what was going on. Don't give up without getting past the first few chapters.

    I felt like the book didn't fully finish up at the end. It kind of left me wanting a little more.

    My conclusion:

    Overall, I thought this was a pretty good read.

    I give Still Life 4 out of 5 stars.

    I received this book free to review from Bethany House. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.

    This review was written for Still Life #2.
    Avery Tates best friend, Skylar, is missing. She posed for a bizarre photograph for a gallery showing, but evidence in the photograph leads Avery to think Skylar is dead. She calls the best in the business to come look at the photograph and Skylars trailer to process them. The best being the man she has given her heart to, Parker Mitchell. She and Skylar grew up together and had a past riddled with alcohol, drugs and petty crime, but eight years ago Avery became a Christian and has never looked back. She totally turned her life around. Unfortunately, Skylar has not. Avery desperately wants to find out where Skylar is and try again to get her out of her seedy lifestyle. Parker and Avery embark on an investigation with the help of Charm City Investigations, which includes their friends Griffin, Finlay, Kate, Tanner and Declan. Their search leads them after an obsessed man, his girlfriend, some college kids who were in Skylars trailer as well as some other people from Averys past.

    While this story definitely had moments of tension and suspense, I felt that Declan and Tanner were too much in the story. They took the focus sometimes off of Avery and Parker. I know the third book in the series is to focus on Declan and Tanner, but having them appear so often in this story dimmed my enjoyment somewhat. I was glad to see Griffin and Finlay make appearances in the story, and since their story was told in book one, I was okay with them being in the story. I did really like how Avery and Parker both prayed and kept each other accountable in their relationship with God. God was definitely a part in their relationship, drawing them together and strengthening them. I look forward to book three being released in October 2017 titled, Blind Spot. Also, check out Danis other great series set in Alaska called Alaskan Courage.
