This is another great book from Barbara Freethy about the little town of Angel Bay- Lauren was born and raised here,however, she left when she was seventeen-right after her sister was murdered and no one was ever charged. She left her first love because she believed he became involved with her sister. She comes back years later, to help her Father with some medical problems. She see her first love and she is still angry with him but she admits to herself she still has feelings for him. She becomes involved with him and they set out to try and solve her sisters murder.
This book is a keeper and one you will not be able to put down.

On Shadow Beach is the second book in a series set in the mythical seashore town of Angel's Bay, CA. Unfortunately, I didn't like it as much as the first installment, Suddenly One Summer. Freethy has set up an interesting situation, wherein a ship wreck in 1850 just outside the bay, left many townspeople who are decendants of the survivors and a group of angels (or ghosts, depending on your beliefs) of those who perished. There is one survivor in particular, a baby named Gabriela, who washed ashore and who bore a distinctive birthmark that her descendants also bear. In the first book, an angel (or ghost) of one of those descentants played a crucial role in the climax of the book. This book, which focuses on the unsolved murder 13 years earlier of a teenager named Abby, doesn't have such a direct heavenly (or psychic) intervention.

Lauren, Abby's older sister has returned to Angel's Bay because her father is suffering from Altzheimer's Disease and neighbors have warned the family that he is no longer safe on his own. Lauren's family had been torn apart 13 years earlier by her sister's murder, with her mother unable to stay in the area and her father unable to leave. Lauren's mother had left taking the remaining two children and her father had remained behind distancing himself from the rest of the family. Lauren's pain is compounded by the fact that her father had always favored Abby and that Lauren's boyfriend, Shane, had been a suspect in Abby's death--with the supposition that he was cheating on Lauren with her sister. Shane had refused to reveal details of that night when he was seen with Abby despite having told Lauren he was working.

This is the second book in the series and had be running to the keyboard for #3.

There is a really wonderful bit of insight regarding Alzheimer's in addition - or rather as a part of the wonderful story.

I normally just enjoy Barbara Freethy books like they are big box of mental BonBons - that perfectly hit my emotional sweet tooth. This series is is a wonderful find!

Loved the intensity of this story. Lauren went back to Angel's Bay after her aunt was robbed and landed in the hospital. Lauren didn't expect to find her ex-boyfriend to be looking into the robbery case... Shane was the accused one for murdering Lauren's sister, Abby. Now Lauren must face the truth - and deep down she knows it wasn't Shane. But to prove this she must uncover the identity of her sister's murderer - and the only way she can do this is with the help of her ex. Sizzle-sizzle!

On Shadow Beach by Barbara Freethy
Contemporary Romance -Mar. 30, 2010
4 Stars

Barbara Freethy does an amazing job in `On Shadow Beach' putting both elements of long-lost love and mystery together.

This book is the second novel following On Angel's Bay, which also takes place in a small California town where there was a long-unsolved murder of a teenage girl.

But that dead girl was Lauren Jamison's sister. Lauren left Angel's Bay to try to forget about the past, but she is forced to return to take care of her aging father. Being home again, Lauren is forced to remember the past, which includes remembering Shane Murray, the one guy she has not been able to forget. Unfortunately, Shane was accused of killing her sister. Now that Lauren is in town, Shane is finally able to defend himself and tell her about the murder. The twists and turns that lead to the truth around her sister's murder were quite a surprise. One that I did not see coming at all!

Freethy's writing is style is free flowing and her pacing is beautiful. I was able to read this book quickly, and I hope she continues writing more about Angel's Bay. Just a warning to readers, this book is a blend of romance and mystery, so don't expect steamy love scenes. There are love scenes and plenty of romantic tension, but it is definitely more of a blend of mystery mixed with some romance, rather than just romance.

It was a pleasure reading this story. Just the description of the town makes me wonder if there is indeed one like this in California. I would like to visit!
