Review by: Melanie on Dec. 19, 2012 :
Shadows of Pain is the third book I've read by Ashley Dawn and I found it to be another good suspense novel. Even though I've read the first two books in the Shadow series, it's been a while and I found myself a little confused about who everyone was... it would have been nice if things would have been explained a little more.

I liked both of the main characters in Shadows of Pain (Daniel and Kami) and getting updates on the main characters from the previous books. I did think the writing was a little repetitive at times, but the story was still really good.

While I don't think this is my favorite of the series, I still enjoyed it a lot and look forward to reading more by Ashley Dawn in the future. If you like suspense novels with some romance, then I think you might like Shadows of Pain, but I recommend first reading books one and two (Shadows from the Past and Shadows of Suspicion), because otherwise I think you'll be really confused.

*I received a complimentary eBook copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

"Shadows of Pain" is the third book in the 'Shadow Series'. Ashley pens her characters believable and relateable in this fast paced Christian themed, suspense romance. I suggest starting with the first book in the series, but this book is also good for a stand alone...even though I would feel kind of lost if I didn't start in the beginning. A good clean read recommended for all readers.

Book 3 in the Shadows Series, a Christian Suspense Romance by Ashley Dawn.
In this suspense filled story we met with a whole cast of characters tossed together as a family. Each qualified law enforcement officers and you see how three groups, The FBI, the CSI and the LAPD work together to catch the stalker that shadow their every move.
Not even babies was immune to this bad guy's threats but at the end justice was served.
We met up with the old group in the previous books of the Series as the story continues. I would recommend to first buy the first two before you read Book 3 since it would fill in the blanks more easily.
Since I have not done this I was left with many unknowns in the story and the author left many gaps for me to really enjoy this read. I love suspense stories, the thrill and unexpected turns and twists you find in a story to keep you paging through the pages, questioning and anticipating who the perp could be. The end result when you find that you were wrong in guessing and the build up to the whole plot.
Although the build up in this book was good there were to many distractions within the characters mind frames. Too many other things that occupied it and it lessen the suspense some what. Loosing its momentum.
The salvation message came clear in the story when two characters is faced with mortality and God's place in their lives. But once again the theme did not had enough build up to see the progressive growth in the character's faith as you would have when you were facing a stalker who was out there trying to kill your loved ones.
There were just to many warnings from the perp to make the plot really believable and tensed filled.
The romance were good, the two characters David and Kami really coming together as a couple in this dire situation. They were caring and protective of each other, doing the little extras that makes a relationship work.
Over all a good read but make sure you read the first two books in the Shadows Series.

This story is the third one in the series and I have to say that I actually felt like I was missing a little information when I started. I started off with book two for a book review and of course I can't pass up continuing to review the series when they come my way. Unfortunately, I have not had a chance to read book one, Shadows from the Past. The story jumps right into action and you find yourself reading about a troubled man questioning his belief in God who finds his way into a hospital bed. He is surrounded by "family" and friends (family is in quotes because none of them are blood related) who are very devout Christians, but also are love him the way he is. Where I felt like I was missing information was in the relationships between these people. Apparently a great deal of information about each of them is in the first book so I spent some time just trying to understand how they were "related" to each other when in fact most of them are not related at all. That said, the rest of the plot seems to be very easy to follow and will leave you in suspense. These stories are all crime related and focused on the Riley family. The Riley's have a lot of law enforcement in their ranks and after taking down a major crime family, that family is out to destroy everyone they hold dear. This results in the discovery of how God is always active in their lives as well as finding true love in some cases. This particular story is centered on Kami and Daniel. Neither are a member of the Riley family, but their law enforcement partners are. Will Daniel no longer be the troubled man and learn to accept God in his life? Will Kami be able to get over her troubled past and accept that Daniel just might be the man God has planned for her? Will they both live long enough to see where their relationship might go? You'll have to read to find out!

In Shadows of Pain, author Ashley Dawn keeps us turning the pages as she brings us great action and suspense blended with faith and a budding romance.

The book opens with Detective Daniel Jordan of the LAPD narrowly escaping death in a motorcycle accident that proves not to be an accident at all. As his friends rally around him, attempts are made on their lives, and it becomes apparent that this close-knit group of friends is the target of a notorious enemy from the past. But whose past? And why? To remove the threat, they must use their combined resources to discover who is behind the attacks, who the attacker is—and then track him down!

Shadows of Pain is the third book in Ashley Dawn’s Shadow Series. It is a book full of suspense and action. It’s a good clean read with Christian themes woven throughout.
