Some secrets should just stay buried. On the day Tristan Morrow is born her mother goes missing, prompting an investigation that produces no solid leads. Fast forward 15 years, and the Morrow family still doesn't know the truth behind Catherine Morrow’s disappearance. When 15 year old Tristan is required to write a biography on her mother for a school assignment, she learns the truth about her mother’s fate, and is hell-bent upon finding out who was responsible for her death. But when Tristan herself goes missing too, everyone is suspect, even her own father and boyfriend. Set in rural Fox Hollow, PA, Shadow Dancer unravels a web of lies, deceit, madness and corruption. Can investigators crack the case before Tristan meets the same fate as her mother? And who is responsible for the disappearances? There is much uncertainty as the investigation unfolds, but there is one thing that is certain: Tristan Morrow holds the master key to the entire riddle.

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books
*I received a copy of this book from Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.*
This was certainly an exciting book and very well written. The story is told going back and forth between current and past events. I enjoyed this idea as it helped keep the suspense and thrill to the book going, just a little bit further. The more into the current day story you would get, the more you needed to know about the past. The main suspense to the story was entwined with two or three other stories that went along with it. The author did a great job keeping them all separate events but keeping them as one cohesive story.
The details were great. As this story takes place on a Manor with several acres of property including woods, mountains, and lake the author takes great care describing the surroundings. It’s definitely not a place I would want to visit in the evening hours!
The more I got into the story, the harder it was to put the book down as it was necessary. I needed to know what happened and was sitting on the edge of my seat. As details were unveiled sometimes I would sigh and something I would audibly express my understanding of certain other scenes. It felt nice as the story was starting to fold itself together. My only complaint was towards the middle of the story and as they were telling more of the backstory, I thought it might have been a little drawn out, maybe repeated slightly. That’s my only complaint in this story. Otherwise, it’s incredibly well written and was a great read and I must recommend it to you to read! It’s not heavy on romance but incredibly heavy on suspense and thrill!
