Shadows of the Past Book Review


About the Book

Psychology professor and criminal profiler Taylor Martin prides herself on being able to solve any crime, except the one she wants most desperately to solve--the disappearance of her father twenty years ago. When she finally has a lead on his whereabouts, Taylor returns home to Logan Point, Mississippi, to investigate. But as she is stalking the truth about the past, someone is stalking her.

Nick Sinclair pens mystery novels for a living, but the biggest mystery to him is how he can ever get over the death of his wife--a tragedy he believes he could have prevented. With his estranged brother the only family he has left, Nick sets out to find him. But when he crosses paths with Taylor, all he seems to find is trouble.(Goodreads)

 My Review

I was really looking forward to a fast paced suspense read. This book seemed rather slow to me throughout the majority except the last part. I enjoyed the overall story line, the characters weren't my favorite but still good. I like the setting and there are suspenseful moments but the story seemed to drag on a bit. I do think this author has some great potential and I will be looking for more from her, this book just was not what I was expecting (which I'm sure is part of the problem). 

I rate it about three and a half stars. 

"I received this book from Revell for free in exchange for an honest review."
