Shadows of the Past by Patricia Bradley ~ A Suspense Book Review

Logan Point, Book 1
Romantic Suspense

Back of 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.

My thoughts:

Taylor Martin is happy in her teaching job at the university and pursuing a lucrative career as a much sought after criminal profiler. Life seems to be going so well, until it isn't. Her fiance has dumped her and married another woman and one of her students seems to be stalking her. Before she knows it her whole carefully created life has blown apart. 

She finally decides to return home to Logan Point, Mississippi to try and solve a twenty year old mystery that involves the disappearance of her father. But going home proves to be stickier than she thought it would be. There are things brewing that Taylor had not anticipated.

Nick Sinclair is a best-selling author of mystery novels. While his professional life seems to be on the rise, his personal life is filled with tragedy. His beloved wife died in his arms and he is wracked with guilt over not being capable of saving her. To make matters worse his estranged half brother has reemerged desperately needing his help. 

Patricia Bradley has put together a riveting tale that takes you into the depths of the twisted psyche of the human mind. She probes the topic of how far someone would go to fulfill their own desires. I enjoyed the developing relationship between Taylor and Nick, there is some serious steam going on there! As the layers of the story are peeled back you begin to see who is behind all the terror, but until the very end you don't completely understand all the whys. Great opening to what promises to be a chilling (in a good way!) new series.
