Description

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.

"Pettrey has a knack for keeping the reader one step behind the unfolding mystery, and the romance between Parker and Avery is a nice relief from the mounting danger that the case reveals. Their history, and their constant reminders of faith and God's love, makes the romance that much sweeter and heartwarming."--Publishers Weekly

"Pettrey's readers know they can count on a thrilling plot with a solid side of romance, and Still Life is no exception. Pettrey also imbues her story with her trademark inspirational theme."--Booklist

"Pettrey has a wonderful ability to blend together the romantic and the mystery storylines and make both equally important. The multitude of possible suspects will keep readers guessing, and also makes the tale move at a brisk pace. Clever, believable plot twists provide fresh suspense, and the author provides plenty of flawed, believable characters for readers to relate to within the story."--RT Book Reviews

"Fans of Pettrey will adore this new romantic suspense series. Dynamic protagonists and an increasingly tense narrative set the scene for a harrowing and thrilling ride."--Library Journal

"An intricate plot, a reunion of friends and an appealing lead couple make this a standout."--Booklist starred review
