"Still Life" is book 2 in Dani Pettrey's Chesapeake Valor series and it is a great addition to the series and continuation of the characters' lives as this group of friends work together. Avery reluctantly returned to her past solely to support her friend and she is hopeful that her friend is finally getting her life on a good track. When Skylar is a no show, Avery knows that something is drastically wrong and she knows she must call on her former colleague Parker to help her. As Parker and Avery seek answers as to what has happened to Skylar, they find themselves immersed in the danger. There is another storyline going on as well that started in book #1, as a friend has been missing and there is hope and thought that he is still alive. From start to finish, this book is a whirlwind of a read that will leave you anxious for book #3 to be released! I really enjoy Dani's style of writing as she creates characters whom are believable and easy to empathize with. The suspense and romance are nicely mixed and balanced, and the action is non-stop! I highly recommend this book to romantic suspense fans, but be sure to read book #1 first!
