Great story with romance and mystery! Good vs evil.

The very likeable characters and the nice, second chance romance were the only things that kept me reading this book. The relationships between family member and friends was the strongest part of the story. their emotions came across very well.
However, the identity of the killer was completely obvious from very early in the novel and I was incredulous that a seasoned detective and a top New York lawyer couldn't join the dots sooner. It grew very annoying and tedious watching them go through the

For me, the sign of a really great romantic suspense is the exercise in restraint needed not to flip to the end of the book to find out who the baddie is. I had to give myself a stern talking to on several occasions with this book, lol. Patience is not a virtue I possess *snorts*

As you will see from the blurb of this book, very little is given away. So, I refuse to say too much here, for fear of ruining your reading experience. Suffice it to say, this story has a suspense driven plot where past

I was pleased to have won this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

This is the first time that i have read any books by Bernadette Marie and i'm sure it will not be the last. I don't often read romantic suspense, so 'Chasing Shadows' made a welcome change. A very enjoyable book and one that i can recommend.

Bernadette Marie has penned a winner in Chasing Shadows. For fans of books that consume your every thought when you put it down, this is definitely the one for you.

I loved the mystery and the fact that it kept me guessing.

My favorite thing about this novel was the characters. They were multi dimensional and we really got a good background on them to allow us to understand their characters. I loved the fact that their relationship was balanced by each of their characteristics and experiences. Th

I'm going to start with the setting, I really enjoyed the fact that it was easy to picture with the wonderful descriptions the author used.
For the most part I think the author managed to write a pretty authentic novel.

It did take a while for the action to begin and the story to unfold, but once it got going, I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed the fact that Bernadette Marie was able to surprise me a couple of times. I always like a novel that keeps me guessing.

Action-packed, romantic suspense story. I did guess the murderer early on despite suspicion being placed on others. Eagerly read on to make certain I was correct and that the book had a satisfactory conclusion. It does! I skipped over the sex scenes and got right back on track with the mystery. I look forward to reading more by this author. I was given a copy for my voluntary review.

Notebooks and pens have been my obsession since childhood. Later it became books and stories others weaved into the perfect escape. The day I received my first typewriter was the day the passion for spinning a tale hit me – and it hit hard.

I was thirteen when I first sat down to write the great-American love story. I didn’t have much to say at thirteen. But over the years I did fall in love, get m
