Someone Is Out There. Watching Her. Waiting.

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 for which her friend modeled. 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, and so Avery immediately calls Parker for help.

As Avery, Parker, and their friends in law enforcement dig into the mystery, they find themselves face-to-face with a relentless and deadly threat.

Wow. Dani Pettrey has outdone herself with this one. I was thoroughly engrossed in this story and read it practically in one sitting. From the fitting title to the connection between Avery's job as a crime-scene photographer and the involvement of photography in the disappearance of her friend, Still Life is a picture-perfect suspense! Pettrey tugs at the emotions as chilling crime scenes intertwine with the heat of underlying romantic tension. I wasn't quite sure if I needed a blanket or a fan as I read. I'm excited to read more about Avery and Parker as this series continues. Grab your copy of Still Life today!
