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.

In the second installment of her Chesapeake Valor series, Pettrey picks events up six months after the end of Cold Shot with Avery Tate returning to the Baltimore art scene at the request of her friend, Skylar Pierce. She is no longer Parker Mitchells crime scene photographer, since she realized her deep feelings for him werent reciprocated, but when a disturbing photo is found in the place of the original at a gallery opening where Skylar was supposed to showcase her art, Avery calls in Parker. Unable to ignore her plea for help, Parker is divided between his affection for Avery and the love that he still feels for Jenna McCray. Skylars case takes them both down the twisting path of the past and present, pulling in the rest of the investigative team from Cold Shot, with each member using a different area of expertise to help uncover the truth about Skylar and the switched photograph. 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 Gods love, makes the romance that much sweeter and heartwarming. Agent: Janet Kobobel Grant, Books & Such. (Feb.)
