Shadow in Serenity: A Book Review

About The Book:

Carny Sullivan grew up in the zany world of a traveling carnival. Quaint and peaceful Serenity, Texas, has given her a home, a life, and a child. Logan Brisco is the smoothest, slickest, handsomest man Serenity, Texas has ever seen. But Carny Sullivan knows a con artist when she sees one—and she’s seen plenty, starting with her father. As far as Carny Sullivan can tell, she’s the only one in town who has his number. Because from his Italian shoes to his movie-actor smile, Logan has the rest of the town snowed.
Carny is determined to reveal Brisco’s selfish intentions before his promise to the townspeople for a cut in a giant amusement park sucks Serenity dry. Yet, as much as she hates his winning ways, there is a man behind that suave smile, a man who may win her heart against her will. Shadow in Serenity is a modern-day Music Man, penned by a Christy Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author.

My Review:

Terri Blackstock has long been a favorite author of mine, so I was very excited to read Shadow in Serenity! With each page read, you will find very intriguing characters, twists and turns galore, and a little romance thrown in for good measure. Each character and story line is very well developed and relatable, and real, making it a very genuine read. And the most important element is the importance of a relationship with God!

I love that this is one of her original novels, written under an anonymous name, prior to her becoming an Christian writer, and re-written to appeal to Christian audiences. You can definitely see the difference in her writing style, yet I still love it! I will always be a Blackstock fan and can't wait to see what piece of suspense she will come out with next!

I highly recommend this book and give it huge thumbs up!
