Book Review - Shadow Dancer

Shadow Dancer by Addison Kline

Book 1 in the Shadow Series


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. 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.

4 out of 5 Stars!!

Honestly, the summary doesn't do the book justice. The book was well written with a balance of current time and flash backs to a lifetime ago to help tell the story. It's a story of one man's obsession over a woman he could never have and the lives he destroys in the process. But, it's also a story of the love of a family and what they mean to each other and how the overcome all adversity. My favorite part of the book was the reports the kids wrote about their family members. I'm so glad that the author actually included the presentations in the book. So many times things like that are left out or glazed over. But, in this case, it was a very important part of the book.  It was a touching part that got me teary eyed.

I made myself find time in my busy schedule to read this book, it was that good.  I would suggest this book to someone looking for a book that has a little love, a little humor, and a lot of suspense.  I have read a few of Addison Kline's other books and I was a little surprised this book was from her - in a good way!  You didn't get the feel of the other books or characters and this was a completely different world, which was a good thing.  Great read!  I look forward to more books from this author in the future!!
