Still Life by Dani Pettrey | Book review by Loraine Nunley #bookreview

What is this book about?

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 and support her best friend, who modeled for the show. 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. She immediately calls Parker for help. As Avery, Parker, and his friends in law enforcement dig into the mystery, they find themselves face-to-face with a relentless and deadly threat.

My review:

As I’ve come to expect from this author, lots of wonderful characters, nicely blended romance with suspense, and page-turning thrills fill the covers of this book. I was especially interested in reading this one because I loved Parker and Avery in the first book of this series.

Parker was such a wonderfully fun character in the first book and it continued in depth in this one. Plus I loved imaging his Irish accent calling Avery by endearments. 🙂 I also really enjoyed Avery’s personality and her depth of feelings for Parker.

The suspense definitely had me shivering throughout because a few of the suspects were just creepy. 😮 And I have to admit that the murder that started the story was unusual and somewhat disturbing.

While I did enjoy the secondary storyline involving Declan, I kept expecting it to relate to Parker and Avery’s story. I suspect that it will be relevant in the third book of the series though.

What I enjoyed most about this book

That Parker and Avery’s romance flowed naturally and their personalities were a great match.

What I didn’t like about this book:

The secondary storyline threw me off because I expected it to tie in to the main storyline.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this book to others?  Yes. Although the creepy guys may make you look over your shoulder, the characters were very good. The romance and the suspense were very well blended. This is the second book in the series. While it can be read as a standalone, Parker and Avery’s history is deeper if you read the first book.

I received this book complimentary in a giveaway. I was not required to give a review. All of the opinions I have expressed here are honest and my own.
