Work hits too close to home for crime scene photographer Avery Tate when her best friend disappears The on Let me start off by saying that Still Life can be read on its own but I highly recommend reading the first book in the series Cold Shot to get a greater understanding of the cast of characters That's where we first meet Avery and Parker with their palpable chemistry despite traumatic pasts preventing them from acting on their feelings I also want to point out that I really appreciated that the author didn't rehash or summarize the entire plot from Cold Shot in Still Life only brief mentions of how the characters had connected so even if you read the books out of order the story hasn't been spoiled I think this would also intrigue a reader who hasn't read the first book and make them want to experience Griffin and Finley's story It actually made me want to go back and read it againI enjoyed the camaraderie between the members of the group of friends that worked together to solve the many angles of the case It definitely balanced out the anxiety I felt from the suspense and creepiness of the crime I noticed much less tension in their relationships than the first book when they were initially reunited Now they are supportive with each other both socially and professionally The details of the step by step investigation never felt mundane but exciting as each revealed a deeper aspect in the plot Some occasional glimpses into the mind of the villain also ramped up the anticipation as the story moved swiftly forward A separate FBI case is explored simultaneously by Declan and Tanner which really got the pace hopping and provided an introduction to their fledgling relationshipThere are several twists in the case and Parker and Avery are practically inseparable as they partner up for their tasks in uncovering the mystery It gives them plenty of opportunity to experience reawakened feelings and angst over what is keeping them apart Fortunately their shared faith plays a major role in helping them overcome mental obstacles that were holding them back There is a strong theme of redemption through Christ and forgiveness of self in their conversations that exhibited the respect they held for each other and their beliefs Their romance takes a backseat to the intensity of the suspense plot but they have their fair share of special moments ;I loved the setting of Balti and the descriptions the author subtly included of the urban environment the landscape and even the influence of the weather conditions gave me a strong sense of the location and just how different it is from what I'm used to I was drawn to the details of photography and art in the story but it was also disturbing to see how they were used to represent the subject matter of death in a grotesue manner Still Life is a book that kept me glued to the pages and I'm so excited to discover what's in store for Declan and Tanner in the next book Blind SpotI received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions in this review are my own

DOC Still Life

Still LifeLy lead is a chilling photo of her apparently dead As Avery her boss Parker and his friends dig into the c Can we all just pause a moment and appreciate that cover? I have two words for you that will make that hot guy even hotter Irish Accent Yep My book boyfriend collecting heart swooned right into a little puddle when after Avery has been knocked down by an assailant Parker wiggles two fingers at her and says “Come here lass Let me check you out”So let’s just take another moment or ten to absorb the fineness of that cover and know that he speaks with an Irish brogue Is brogue the right word to use here? I don’t know i’m still twitterpatedBut I’m reviewing the book not the cover aren’t I?Still Life is Dani Pettrey at her best Part psychological thriller part romantic suspense this book is all kinds of captivating You won’t be able to put it down There are two races against the clock going on – find Avery’s friend and find a possible terrorist And the gang from Cold Shot returns to tackle both searches If you haven’t already read book 1 it’s not necessary before you read Still Life but you’ll appreciate the characters and one of the subplots better if you doPettrey’s latest is also a study in contrasts which I think fits so poignantly with the photography theme For one thing you have the contrast between Avery and Skylar between a life whose past has been redeemed by Jesus and a life still lived for her own purposes We see the difference between refugees just looking for safety and those who mean harm There’s the contrast between life and death darkness and light and there’s the exuisitely tender message that the old has gone and that Jesus makes us newBottom Line Still Life by Dani Pettrey shows the darkest side of humanity as well as the strength of redemption The suspense and mystery is extremely well written and the romance gives plenty of opportunity for swooning The subthread related to their friend Luke – who may or may not be dead – gets even intriguing in this second installment in the series and I have a feeling that book 3 will be even so I can’t waitI voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this booksee my review at Reading Is My SuperPower
