Shadows of the Past by Patricia Bradley

From the Back Cover:

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:

This one got off to a slow start for me, but after a few chapters I was hooked.  Patricia Bradley has crafted one crafty mystery...I did not see that ending coming!

Both Taylor and Nick are memorable characters.  I would enjoy seeing them again in future novels.  And, yes, this is a new series to fall in love with.

The writing is crisp, and dialogue is snappy, and with the exception of the slower start, I found "Shadows of the Past" to be a keeper.  I'm looking forward to the rest of this series!

"Shadows of the Past" gets four out of five stars. I received a copy of this book courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
