Shadow Stalker is also the start of a series. Not every loose end was completely tied up, but that was all right. I especially like that changes in the characters' attitudes and beliefs weren't forced, so that everyone was a perfect believer by the end of the book. I like that the author is giving the characters time to grow and mature, in their relationships with each other and with God.
Having lost her parents to a brutal murder which she witnessed at 4 years of age she was brought up by friends of her parents on a ranch where she became very independent! Now an adult she decides to move back to the country of her birth, Canada, and attempt to find out what really occurred back then. She contacts the lawyer who has been handling her estate all these years hoping maybe he can shed light on her past. Christine and Chief, her dog who is a trained search animal, work at her newly formed company Finder's Keeper's.
The lawyer's son is also a private investigator and oil and water is the best way to describe the relationship that forms between these two! When a case Christine is working on somehow intertwines with one of Jeremy's--things get interesting-not to mention someone from her distant past is attempting to kill her.
Yes, I will be getting the next in this series--the way this book ended--I have no choice!!
Starting her own detective agency, Melissa/Christine battles to find a four-year-old child while dealing with her own problems/nightmare. Has the murderer of her parents found her? Will he ever give up? And can she and Jeremy Goodman, who wants to protect her, work together and perhaps find a spark of love?
Fast paced, intense, and a book well-worth your time and money. You'll be pulled into the story from the beginning and have a hard time putting it down. Intriguing plot!
While I had a few technical glitches (I tried to transfer my PDF version of the book to my Kindle, but ended up with missing pages) Derksen still kept me intrigued. She is a very good mystery writer and is quite adept at pulling you into the story. Christine Finder, aka Melissa Rompart, saw her parents viciously murdered when she was a child, unfortunately she also saw the killer and he has been after her ever since. After relocating to Canada, changing her name and setting up her own detective agency called Finder's Keepers, she is hired to look for a missing boy. But Christine's killer is still tracking her. Could it be he has tracked her all the way to Canada? In the meantime, Jeremy Goodman has his own detective agency and two problems to solve - one is protecting Christine and the other is finding an old man who wandered away from a nursing home. Will Christine trust him enough to let him into her life? Will they be able to work together to find the boy and the man? Or will Christine's stalker find them? You'll have to read the book to find out!
Shadow Stalker still pulled me in from the first page and I'm glad I did not give up on it, despite (as I said) technical glitches. If you like mysteries, you will enjoy this one!
I give Shadow Stalker 4/5 stars.
