Shadows of the Past by Patricia Bradley
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 enjoyed this story filled with suspense and likable characters! I'm fascinated by profilers and what they do and liked the descriptions of Taylor's process. The story had a good pace and a couple mysteries going on, but I figured out who the bad guys were pretty much right away, which was disappointing. I also thought sometimes Taylor didn't think of things that were pretty obvious. I liked the romance, but wished for more depth to it, though this does take place over only a few weeks' time. I hope there will be sequels because there were a lot of fascinating characters introduced I would love to get to know better. If you like romantic suspense, check it out!
I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
