Book Review: "Shadows of the Past" by Patricia Bradley

As part of of the Revell Blog tour, I love being able to read books by authors that I have never read before.  In January I received an e-mail of available books and saw "Shadows of the Past," by Patricia Bradley.  After reading the description, I knew that I wanted to read this book.

I received the book right before Tony, Caleb and I came down with the horrible crud.  I started reading the book while recovering from that crud and I couldn't put it down!  I finished the book in two days!!!

Here's the description of the book: 

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 is stalking the truth about the past, someone is stalking her.

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. With his estranged brother 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 this determined duo search the murky shadows of the past for the keys to unlocking the present and moving into a future filled with new hope and love. Readers will be swept into the sultry South in this debut novel from a promising and already award-winning writer.

I was drawn into the book in the very first chapter.  Ms. Bradley did a great job of keeping the story moving in such a way that you were always guessing as to who the actual "bad guys" were until the very end, which I like in a suspense novel.

Ms. Bradley's writing reminded me a lot of Sandra Orchard and Lynette Eason, so if you like their books
