Still Life and a Giveaway!


This  past Sunday Dani Pettrey hosted a release party at a local Barnes and Noble. still-life-launch-3Not only did I get to go, but hubs came with since he’s gotten into the series. It was such fun! Dani gave away some fun goodies, gave us all some background on the book, series, and writing life, and answered questions.still-life-launch-2

Here were some fun facts she shared:

  • Dani’s husband has extensive gun knowledge, including the snipers, and took her to the gun range so she could experience shooting for herself.
  • She loves the research for a book.
  • Tends to re-write the whole middle of the book two weeks before deadline and has a very supportive family during this crazy time.

stilllifeAbout the book: 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 and support her best friend, who modeled for the show. 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. She immediately calls Parker for help. As Avery, Parker, and his friends in law enforcement dig into the mystery, they find themselves face-to-face with a relentless and deadly threat.

Review: I could not put this down and neither could the hubs. It was intense, although a couple of the locations were not nearly as creepy to me since I’ve been one of the lucky few inside for my paycheck job (which I also love). But, there were some scary moments. I think the concept of knowing a murder happened because of a photograph but not knowing where the crime scene or the victim are is so intriguing. And the continuing developing relationships of the other characters in the series makes me bite my nails waiting for the next one. It is so much fun for me as a local to read and recognize places in my hometown. Maybe we can convince a local tour company to do tours based on the series!

Hubs review: I never really thought I’d enjoy reading romance until my wife took an opportunity of jury duty to stir the pot (Kat here, he forgot a book to read, so I dropped off Blind Shot. He’s been hooked ever since). Still Life has enough mystery and suspense to keep me intrigued, and I enjoy the local references that shed a good light on Baltimore. (Like a true male, short and to the point. Maybe you too can convince the man in your life that he’ll love it.)

    I haven’t read this series yet, so I can’t comment which character is my favorite. I have Cold Shot out and am hoping to start reading it soon so I can then read Still Life right after!

  7. Hi!

    Great giveaway.

    Did you know the cover model for Still Life is Ken McNickle, and he was on Survivor? I thought that was an interesting little tidbit!

    I haven’t had a chance to read these yet but they are on my TBR pile!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win such great prizes. Good luck to everyone!
