Shadows of the Past: A Book Review

About The Book:

While she's stalking the truth . . . someone is stalking her.
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 works to uncover the truth, someone else will do almost anything to keep her from it.

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. Now that his estranged brother is 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.

Join the chase as Taylor and Nick search the murky shadows of the past for the keys to unlocking the present--and moving into a future they never imagined.

I am an absolute fan of romantic suspense novels, and have been for many, many years! Over the years I have definitely compiled a list of favorite authors in this genre, and can proudly say that I am adding Patricia Bradley to my list! This is the first writing by this author that I have read but it absolutely will not be the last! After reading Shadows of the Past I cannot wait to read more from her!

The book has a fantastic pace to you and will capture your attention and pull you into the world of all the book's characters and their lives, good and bad. You will NOT want to put this book down, and I will readily admit I was up until the wee hours of the night reading it! A very quick read that all fans of this genre will enjoy and I am excited to that this book is the first in an upcoming series, making me excited to see what is next for the characters and Patricia's writing career!
