Stealing Shadows (Shadows Trilogy)

Rating: **** – 4 Stars

GENRE: Paranormal/Mystery Romance

BOOK SUMMARY: What if you can enter a madman’s cruel mind as he plans his vicious crimes? What if you can see the terrified face of his prey as he moves in for the kill—but you can’t stop his frenzy once he strikes? Psychic Cassie Neill helps the L.A. police catch killers—until she makes a terrible mistake and an innocent child dies. Cassie flees to a small North Carolina town, hoping that a quiet life will silence the voices that invade her unwilling mind. But Cassie’s abilities know few boundaries. And she’s become certain—as no one else can be—that a murderer is stalking Ryan’s Bluff…

REVIEWER COMMENTS:  This is the first book of the Shadows Trilogy, and it is a mix of paranormal, mystery, and romance. And what a mix! Cassie, the main character, has psychic abilities and she finds herself entangled in a murder mystery, as well as a very sweet romance after she moves to a new town. I really liked Cassie, her strengths as well as her weaknesses, and how she evolves throughout the story.  The minor characters, Cassie’s love interest, and even the villain, are all very well written and interesting. I also loved the plot, which kept me guessing until the very end. And for the romance junkies like myself, the love story does not disappoint. Who knew I would so enjoy a mystery novel? Thank you Ms. Hopper!

SEXUAL CONTENT: Some sensual situations, kisses, and reference to sexual encounters, though none described

ADULT LANGUAGE: Mild language and gore, and adult themes

*Conclusion: If you think mystery is not your cup of tea, well, you might want to give this novel a try. What a pleasant surprise!!
