Shadows of Truth is also a true suspense (not a mystery), by definition. We know who the bad guy is, but we are on the edge of our seats, fearful of his next horrid move.
I look forward to reading more of Mignerey.
There may be a book prior to this one that discusses Micah's and Rachel's first meeting--if so, I haven't read it. There were numerous references to the previous time Micah and Rachel were together. This book can be read on its own without knowing the previous history.
Rachel's mistrust of Micah is believable based on what I know of their history from this book. Mistrust is a common plot twist in this genre, but at least in this book, it is a mistrust stemming from the actions of the other person rather than because of someone else's actions. I can see it being harder to trust the same person again when they've proven untrustworthy in the past.
Rachel should have warned her kids more in an age appropriate way. He son goes off with Smitty Jones because he was a handyman that helped around Rachel's and Angela's store and with Graden because he met Graden with his mother and grandfather. I think Rachel should have discussed stranger danger more at that point and told the kids they needed to check with her or their grandfather even if it was someone they thought they knew.
I was confused as to whether Kelman was Micah's boss or if they were equals. It seemed like Kelman was calling the shots in terms of manpower etc. but at one point Micah makes it sound like Kelman is not his boss.
I'd probably read more books by this author if I came across them, but I'm not sure I'd go seek her other books out.
Micah had to go in undercover to investigate Rachel and Angela's antique store. He exposed Angela, which forced Rachel to lose everything. She had to close down her store. But the worst part was that he had deceived her and left her in the dust when the case was over - after falling in love!
Six months later, he's back. And that's how the book started...
I'll leave rather he's right or wrong to the reader, but I will say you don't go into an undercover operation announcing the the suspect that you are undercover.
The romance was sweet, but I felt there was something missing. There was also a hint of where the money was, but that was never resolved...Nobody bothered to look? Also, did Rachel get her bed and breakfast? Did her dear fiance pay off her debts so she could have her dream? The author really left us hanging on this one...
There is a followup story to this book: "From the Ashes" follows Angela's story. I actually read it first and it was excellent!
She's being threatened, is also in danger of losing her house, and to make matters worse, the man who she believes betrayed her, the man she's in love with, DEA agent Micah McLeod has come back. Will he cast suspicion onto her again, further ruining an already damaged reputation. With all this going on Rachel has lost her faith.
Can Rachel get herself to trust God again? Can she trust McLeod, who seems to never say quite the truth? This is ultimately a story about trust, about love casting out fear. The novel is well written and fast paced. I didn't want to put it down and was sorry when it ended to say good-bye to the characters.
Now she has trouble trusting God, but when she turns to Him, He is there.
Heartwarming and poignant, Mignerey tells a story of love and forgiveness. It's not surprising this book won a Top Pick award from Romantic Times.
