Still Life by Dani Pettrey ~ Review

Still Life (Chesapeake Valor #2)Lucie's Review:

Avery Tate is forced to come face to face with the past that ostracized her, as a crime scene photographer, when her best friend, Skylar, goes missing the only clue is a photograph of Skylar, dead.

Avery calls in crime scene investigator Parker Mitchell when she discovers that Skylar's trailer has been ransacked. Avery has admired Parker for a long time, but he's still in love with his first love who was murdered.

Will they get to the bottom of this chilling case?

Avery finds herself again drawn to Parker, as he helps her to face her past and find the forgiveness that she is denying. Avery is a resilient, self-made woman, who stays true to her friends.  Parker also struggles to move on from the past, the love that haunts him. As the murderer closes in on Avery, the stakes rise as his obsession grows.

Parker is a man of integrity and attention to detail that makes him brilliant at his job. He struggles to honor the memory of his first love, but he doesn't want to lose Avery either.

Declan is back again as well, investigating a ship of illegal immigrants, while trying to keep Tanner out of trouble. Tanner is a woman who drives him crazy with her kind heart and compassionate spirit that often overrides her concern for her own safety.

Full of twists and turns, this is one suspenseful thriller of a read, though a bit more graphic in violence and morbid in subject than I typically read. I love how they work together to solve the case to find closure and to bring justice to Skylar's killer. I can't wait ti read the next book in the series and read more about Tanner and Declan!
