A paranormal whodunit that grabbed me, pulled me into the book and didn't let go until the last word of the last page. A quick read, but a satisfying read. The author, respecting the readers time, gives enough of a back story to start off with that you can go forward quickly. A story within a story. A mirror that provides visions into the past. Betrayals, romance, sabatoge, and mystery wrap this story all into a finely done package.
I want to thank the author for providing me a copy for an honest review. A secret gem that shines on its own. Why only 4 stars? I pretty much figure out early on who was behind all the attacks, but it didn't take away from the ending at all. I would have liked just a bit more mystery, a bit more of tagging me along trying to guess who was the bad guy.
Ella's mother is a basketcase. That being said, she didn't seem to find a solid place in the story. Now, if the author proceeds further with this storyline, I can see where she could fit in later, but in this book she could have just been left out altogether.
Do I recommend this book? Yes!!! To who? Anyone who likes a good mystery, from 6th grade through the age of 100. The paranormal hold part of the story, but there's so much more to it than that.

Mirror of Shadows was a nice paranormal mystery.
Elle was a very independent protagonist. She wasn't dependent on a man to come in and save the day, even though that did keep happening. I was happy she didn't come off as being perfect. She even made herself look a little crazy at the beginning when she first met Jeremy. I hated Matt straight from the beginning, but I love Jeremy. He was the silent, keep-to-himself type, and that drove me crazy wanting to get to know him. Jeremy was another character who wasn't perfect. He was handsome and, obviously, likes cats, but he was far from flawless and had a somewhat bad background. There was not any insta-love or hooking up, so I have my fingers crossed for a follow up book with more on Elle and Jeremy's relationship.
Jeremy and Elle were well written and, to me, felt like they could be real people. I enjoyed the mystery aspect of the story. It was fun (and creepy) trying to figure out the secrets of Willow along with Elle. Who was she? Why did she die? Is she good or bad? What the heck is up with that mirror in the hallway? The ending was good, and I would recommend this to anyone who wanted a clean, paranormal romance.
