Book Review: Shadows of the Past by Patricia Bradley

Back Cover: 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.

My Review: Amazing debut novel! I can not wait to read more books by Patricia Bradley. Her plot and characters pulled me into the story and would not let me go. Even though I figured out who was to blame fairly early, I did not realize all that was involved until the end. Bradley gave us hints of something more along the way, without insulting the reader's intelligence. The characters were rounded and complex. They each had stories of pain and triumph. I couldn't help but fall in love with them. I hated to see the book end and I wait impatiently for fall to arrive for the next book in the series.

My Rating:

My Recommendation: I highly recommend this book to readers of romantic suspense.
