Shadows of the Past by Patricia Bradley ~ Review

Shadows of the Past: A Novel (Logan Point)

Astor's review:

A gripping, thriller, taunt with mystery and suspense.

Taylor Martin has everything, except the one thing she can't have, her father back. She's a criminal profiler that has been able to solve every mystery, but the one she most desperately wants to find the answers to. Taylor's life has been full of broken relationships, and she's been burned by her tendency to hold on to the past.
When Nick Sinclair is a mystery writer, who lost his wife in a tragedy. When his brother Scott is framed for stalking Taylor, he finds himself trying to defend his brother and clear his name. But when his poems begin showing up in eerie places, he decides to help Taylor find out who is haunting her, and there might be more to their connection than just their growing friendship...

I think I have a new favorite author. Every chapter was taunt with suspense, leading effortlessly into the next chapter, and the next time you look up it's 200 pages later. This book grabs you up and doesn't let go. I was so surprised by how much I loved it, if you are a fan of Irene Hannon or Lynette Eason, you will become an instant fan of Ms. Bradley, I can pretty much guarantee it!

Taylor and Nick were terrific characters who had great chemistry throughout, both of them struggle with letting go of their painful pasts and giving them to God. This book was fast-paced and well written, making it hard to put down, all the while keeping me guessing.

Overall, a stunning debut from an author that I will definitely be reading in the future! Everything about this book was fantastic, chapter to chapter and page to page. I HIGHLY recommend this book!
