Romance and action steeped in suspense. “Behind the Shadows” by Patricia Potter kept me engrossed from the first chapter. In addition to the romance theme, this book also highlights today’s desperate need for organ donors. I also found myself pondering some interesting observations about what makes a parent, and what, if anything, would a child ‘owe’ a parent they never knew about?

Piece of poo romantic thriller from yet another crappy romance writer. I stopped reading around page 50, after the supposedly dead-sexy laywer (info-dumped to the reader in a single paragraph of description) randomly calls the supposedly hot reporter up out of the blue for dinner, after bumping into her once and *gasp* holding her in his arms after she knocks into him.

4.5 stars. Excellent, entertaining mystery. Didn’t want to put it down. The ending was good but weak.

She eventually finds Leigh a wealthy heiress who is the biological daughter. They were switched at birth. Leigh doesn’t want to believe any of this and is reluctant to take a DNA test. Meanwhile, someone is trying to kill Kira. Max is a...more

Easy read, a real chick book.
A well done romantic suspense that got moved up a star simply because
I appreciated the way that Patricia Potter handled the very volatile
topic of organ transplant and organ donating. The emotional toll that
it must take on both or more parties was handled with honesty, simplicity
and sensitivity. Because of this aspect of the storyline inside a regular
romantic suspense plot, it bumped the rating of this book up from a 3 star to
a 4 star rating.

The suspense is 1st class. The beginning was a bit slow but things pick up towards the end.
