Rosa5 Stars Out Of 5Exciting bookMarch 27, 2017RosaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This book was flat-out awesome! It had my attention from the very beginning. I love Dani Pettrey's characters, and this book did not disappoint.
An artist's photograph is replaced at an art show, a missing friend, and this is just the beginning of this enthralling story.
There's lots of suspense going on, and the whole story just moved right along at a rapid pace.
Just when I thought I had it figured out, the story would take another twist.
If you like Christian suspense, or have enjoyed other books by this author, do NOT miss this one!
CozyWriter'sDen4 Stars Out Of 5Good book!March 26, 2017CozyWriter'sDenQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the second book in the series, "Chesapeake Valor", and it follows the saga of a crime fighting team made up of old and new friends. The group, a mismatch of companions, is brilliant at solving crimes. With their uniquely different approaches and talents they form a formidable force. One by one, the team buts up against a person they can't quite forget.
This is the story of Parker Mitchell, a crime-scene analyst, and Avery Tate. Avery is a girl from the 'wrong side of the tracks' and would seemingly be the totally wrong sort of girl for a straight shooter like Parker. However, as Avery humbles herself to the Lord and is remade, Parker finds that he can't keep her out of his thoughts or his heart. Problems lurk, however, as old secrets have a way of coming to the surface and past relationships threaten their budding romance before it even begins. To make matters worse, a string of horrific events threaten to tear Avery apart.
While sparks fly between Parker and Avery, Declan is being driven crazy by the compassionate, free spirited Tanner. He can't figure out why she unhinges him so much... or why he acts like a complete jerk around her. For her part, Tanner can't warp her head around Declan. He can seem so nice one moment...and the next she wishes he would just disappear from her life. What is with him? More on this with the next novel, I am sure...
As Avery and Parker struggle to figure out where they stand with each other, a string of seemingly non related crimes is occurring around their city. Despite wanting to take a break from working together, they find themselves once again teamed up as they race against the clock to figure out how a terrorist, an art show, and Avery's oldest friend are all related.
This is an exciting, fast paced novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat and chewing your nails with suspense. I was pleasantly surprised by the twists and turns in this story - particularly the last few twists in the story. I won't say anything more other than I honestly did not see THAT coming...
As a warning, some of the subject matter is quite dark and disturbing. For those who frequently read crime novels I am sure the content is quite mild. For myself, it gave me a pretty bad nightmare! So, read it during the day (not in the middle of the night like I did) or perhaps pick up something a little more light hearted if you tend to be very sensitive to the more sinister side of things.
Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications and Baker Publishing House for a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

KrisFairfax, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Mystery, romance, murder and more!March 17, 2017KrisFairfax, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What a bunch of twists and turns and dead bodies that Dani Pettrey has woven into a riveting suspenseful romance novel! This is the second in the Chesapeake Valor novels Cold Shot came before it. In Still Life the author highlights the romance/stories of Avery and Parker. Avery is a photographer, who, at the beginning of the book has gone to a gala to celebrate the opening of a photography exhibit as her childhood friend is a model for the photographer. When her friend Skylar doesnt show and seems to have disappeared, Avery seeks the help of Parker, a crime scene investigator. Parker loves Avery (their romance began in the previous book) but can Avery trust him enough to love her, even with her past? And why did Skylar not show on the night of her big event?
Mystery, romance, murder, abductions, forgiveness its all inside! And I loved the wonderful descriptions of Baltimore and its surrounding areas! I had never heard of Fort Howard, the abandoned military base, and found it both fascinating and creepy! So I highly recommend this book if you like CSI type books a real murder mystery that doesnt shy away from frightening scenes but is clean in the language and sex scenes and has a sweet romance. On the other hand, if you have a weak stomach like some of my friends, this one is not for you! I received this book from the publisher in return for my honest opinion.
Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Still LifeMarch 16, 2017Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, STILL LIFE is a page-turner. I literally couldn't put this book down, except for things I had to do. Yes, it did get a bit creepy, but that just upped the chill factor. And as for who-dun-it? I did get a bit confused there and didn't guess the actual murderer until the person was revealed.
I loved the presence of the Coast Guard (my son is in that service) and "seeing" them in action. There are two different mysteries in this book, and I kept waiting for them to merge into one, but they never did, which somewhat confused me. I didn't have any problem keeping up with characters, and absolutely fell in love with Parker and Avery--though I did feel kind of sorry for Parker's photographer at the end of the book.
I LOVED Ms. Pettrey's Alaskan suspense series, and while this new series is not quite on the same love category, it is definitely a solid placer. If you love romantic suspense, you'll want to read Ms. Pettrey's STILL LIFE.
