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.

I was excited to sign up for this book to review because I felt I needed to shake up my reading list a little. I was glad that I took a chance on Shadow Dancer. To be honest I personally had a hard time getting into the story because I am more use to erotica style of writing but once I was able to remind myself that this is different from that and different is good I was able to get into the story. When I let the story take over I realized that I had a hard time putting the book down. I kept telling myself “just finish this part” or “oh what the heck one more chapter!”.

So Shadow Dancer centers on 15 year old Tristan Morrow who goes missing while trying to write an english report on her own mother, who just so happened to go missing on the day Tristan was born. Tristan and her brothers were always told that their mother just walked away but when Tristan goes missing everything they were told gets questioned and lies start to unraveled. It is clear that everyone, even Tristan’s father and boyfriend, become a suspect. From the very beginning of the book you can tell how close knit this family is despite the circumstance of their mother disappearing. I loved how the author was able to incorporate many different characters within the story to tell a well rounded story. I never felt lost in the story or that there was unnecessary characters involved. As the story unfolds I found myself wanting to know more about the circumstances regarding the disappearance of the mother and how if at all Tristan’s disappearance is related to it. I loved the suspense and the fast pace of the book.

I am glad I read Shadow Dance as it gave me a nice break away from the books I am use to. As I stated in the beginning I had a hard time getting into the book but once I was able to it was a quick easy read. I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a suspense novel.
