Review by: Patricia @itstimetoreadmamaw on Aug. 30, 2012 :
Aurora Kavvan, an LAPD officer, shuts herself off from everyone that loves and cares about her. She blames herself for her brothers death. She has even stopped praying and talking to God. How could God let this happen to her brother? It is like she has no right for happiness or forgiveness. Everyone must blame her. That is what she is thinking and instead of facing them with her feelings and opening her heart to God she puts up a wall. It is harder to forgive oneself than it is to forgive others.

When she is faced with death threats and a friend/partner ends up seriously injured, she is thrown back into her ex fiancee, FBI agent, Jordan Reiley's life. Not as his girlfriend but under protective custody. He protects her not only because it is his job but because he is still in love with her. But she still has a wall up between her heart and everyone else including him.

The author spins a good tale of suspense. I can normally figure out who the secretive bad person is but not in this book. I thought I had it figured out several times. This was definitely a good mystery to the very end. It was hard to put the book down. I am so glad I can jump right into books 2 and 3 in the series.

I highly recommend this book if you enjoy good mystery/suspense.

I received a copy of this book from Lightning Book Promotions. I was in no way compensated for my opinion on this book. These are my own thoughts and opinion.

The Shadow Series can be found on Amazon Kindle.

I enjoyed this book very much! It was really well written .. good suspense .. made you keep moving forward because you needed to know the explanation! It also had a very positive message woven throughout! It was nice that it had some romance & chemistry but done very cleanly & respectfully! But there was no denying the connection which was great!! I look forward to finishing the second book to learn even more about this amazing family! Thanks!

This was definitely a difficult book to put down! I absolutely loved it! It started out with such a suspenseful and dramatic scene that I, from page one, found myself caught up in the story!

Danger seems to be following Aurora Kavvan everywhere. Years ago, her brother was killed in front of her with her gun - Aurora still blames herself for his death. Now her partner was shot when they were on a stakeout and she would have been next had she not shot and killed the gunman! Someone is clearly after her, but will Aurora be able to stay alive in time to find the people behind these attacks?

'Shadows from the Past' was so enjoyable to read. I loved the characters and their stories. Aurora and Jordan's love story was very sweet and I hope their story continues in the next 'Shadows' book! This book is also a lesson on forgiveness and how God is in control and nothing happens without it being His will.

If you don't particularly like suspense novels, than 'Shadows from the Past' probably isn't for you. But if you are like me and love reading suspenseful novels, then 'Shadows from the Past' is definitely for you! I loved it (as I've said already) and 100% recommend it!

A great story from a new-to-me author! I look forward to reading her next book 'Shadows of Suspicion'!
