Thanks for stopping by to check out my Review of Still Life by Dani Pettrey. I'm excited to share my thoughts, but first let me give you some important information. You can find Ms. Pettrey at her Website, Facebook, and Goodreads. You can buy Still Life at Amazon, B&N, and CBD.
Now on to the review!
As much as I loved Cold Shot, Still Life was 10x better. Intrigue was prevalent from the opening line until the very last. My mind is still reeling from a portion near the end.
There is so much I want to say but I don't want go give anything away, so forgive me for speaking in generalities.
First, I loved how Ms. Pettrey used multiple povs (point-of-view) to give us a glimpse of the group dynamics. In case you haven't read the first book (which you totally should), the group is made of Griffin, Declan, Parker, and the missing Luke...and of course, the ladies. And even though this book features Parker and Avery, it was more than their love story.
Ms. Pettrey set the stage for Declan and Tanner's story (coming October 2017 in Blind Spot). We also get to see Griffin and Finley from Cold Shot. And Ms. Pettrey gives us more insight into Kate's story, which I'm assuming will be it's own book as well--I hope. Each pov showcased the character's personality and added an awesome dynamic to the story. My reading eyes are itching to read Blind Spot.
Then there was the suspense and man, was it gripping. My mind was completely engaged with the investigation into Avery's friend's death. Add in a case for Declan, Kate's obsession with Luke, and you have a page turner. Each piece of information heightened the suspense and hooked me further. I LOVED the suspense thread in this story.
And for the romance...Ah, l'amour (had to say it.) I love a good romance. Y'all it's the reason I'll read any Christian subgenre that has it. Ms. Pettrey did not disappoint. Parker made an excellent hero. Tall, dark, handsome, and Irish. What more can I say? Oh yeah...when he gets his ah-ha moment of love, I couldn't quit cheesing. After that, his actions only made me love Parker and Avery's love story all the more.
I really can't gush enough about this story. In fact, I'm dying to discuss all the details, so please leave a comment and let me know if you've read it. (Please no spoilers for those who haven't.)
Y'all be sure to read Still Life. It's a must read and may be my favorite Dani Pettrey novel, yet.
*I give this 5 out of 5 stars!
