I had the opportunity to read Shadow In Serenity by Terri Blackstock, New York Times Bestselling Author.
About The Book: Shadow In Serenity by Terri Blackstock At the age of 17, Carney Sullivan broke free from the traveling carnival and scamming visitors with her dad, and moved to the safe town of Serenity, Texas. Now with a house of her own, a young son and a new life with people who love her, Carney is very protective of her new hometown. But Carney still knows a con artist when she sees one, and when charming, slick Logan Brisco arrives to dupe her town, she is determined to revel his greedy intentions to all. Carny may be Brisco’s biggest match.
Never having has a real family, Brisco becomes comfortable in the quaint, welcoming town, and the lure of the towns people love may be just what he needs to change his criminal ways. Despite Carney’s anger towards Brisco and her attempts to expose his scams to the towns people, Carney learns the truth about the man behind the suave smile. It would take a miracle to change him, but she’s seen that kind of redemption firsthand.
My thoughts: I have to say that honestly I am not a huge romance novel reader, but to be truly honest, I don’t find much time to read all together unless it’s a magazine. If I am going to take the time to read a book it has to be worth my time, so within the first few pages it really needs to spark my attention. Needless to say I finished this one! I do love a good story about a girl who tries to fix the bad boy! This book is very descriptive and made me feel as if I was a part of the story. Great details about characters and locations made me envision the book and made it come alive!
I love Carney, she is a single mom that is extremely smart, resourceful and knows what she wants in life. She can see right through someone’s conning and manipulating ways. Logan is that smooth talking, handsome hottie that even though deep down you know he is scamming you, you just don’t want to believe it kind of guy. Mix these two together and you get great love, turmoil and everything between the two!
Although this is a romance novel, it’s not your normal lovey dovey over the top Fabio story line. Well I guess that is what I have always thought about romance novels, so maybe that is why I don’t find time to read them! This book not only had romance, but drama, anticipation and some good humor. Without ruining the ending, I will tell you to go out and read this, you will love the ending!
