She's done it again

I can never say enough good things about her books, this one included. Every time I read her books it makes me.wish that small towns like this really exsist. I loved Savannah and Ridges story. They were perfect together. I loved the names in this book too. Very fitting to their characters. As always I would recommend this book and any of her other books. If you're looking for a sweet, funny, action packed romance with amazing supporting characters then this is the book for

It began at an auction...

This series is great! The humor is a constant thread running through a very tense and exciting story of suspense. The characters stand out with the well developed personalities and the family love is something everyone would like to live among. About a third of the way in to the suspenseful story I thought the plot was revealed and wondered how the last two thirds would be filled. Never fear! There were so many plot twists and possibilities I was riveted to the book and

One of my favorites....

Ridge and Savannah are perfect! Having read all books by this author, she has created yet another place I wish really existed! All books in this series are standalone, but are even better read in succession because there are a lot of quirky characters you will fall in love with even more from each installment in the series. Once you are hooked, you need to read her Bluegrass series and that quirky, little town gets bigger and better. If I could give 10 stars, I would!!!

Kathleen Brooks just keeps you coming back for more.
Savannah Ambrose moves to Shadows Landing after divorcing her abusive husband.
She goes to an auction and purchases Ridge Faulkner because he is a building designer and she needs help fixing up the house she bought. He also has a lot of men working for him to get the job done.
There is a lot of suspense that will keep your interest besides the off the charts chemistry between Savannah and Ridge.
This is a fun book to read and hard to put down.

I love the community of Shadows Landing, and Ridge and Savannah are beautiful together. Kathleen Brooks has the most wonderful twists and turns in her suspense and even when you think you know what's going to happen, you never get it quite right.
I loved the women's "self defense" classes at the church, Ryker's fear of getting "death cooties" on his boat, and most of all the cross over to the Faulkner's cousins in Keeneston.

Love this author

I didn't find this story as riveting as all the other Kathleen Brooks books..... It was a good and solid read but just felt lacking in some ways. However, I have absolutely enjoyed and re-read all of her other books and have them all. I could never give Kathleen a negative rating and will continue to read the Shadows Landing series lwhile rooting for the next one to be a bit more exciting.

Ridge and Savannah

I never get enough of the people of Keeneston and now Shadow’s Landing. In this 3rd book of the Lasting Shadows series, we are reintroduced to Savannah who has bought Ridge in a bachelor auction...not for a date but to fix up her house! However, who is trying to kill Savannah? And why? Another exciting romantic suspense from one of my favorite authors. Highly recommend.

Great read

I don't know how Kathleen does it but what a fantastic read, kept me hooked I had to finish it. (It's now 3.20am and I've just finished reading). What I loved the most was how Savannah took back control after years of mental abuse. The conflicting emotions of feeling shame/embarrassment and wanting to be proud of taking back control of her own life and future is very realistic. I felt it was quite an empowering read. Thank you Kathleen your the best !

Shadows Landing

I have always loved checking in with the Davies clan, but I'm beginning to look forward more and more to these little visits with their cousins! Love the women of Shadows Landing and finding out a little more of the the backstory while Savannah was learning how to stand on her own! Ridge is her perfect counter balance. Supporting and quietly helping her find her way! I can't wait to see what happens when Jackson Davies visits!

Kathleen Brooks is one of favorite authors. Her Bluegrass, Forever and Shadows Landing series are great reads. The characters have made me laugh, cry, made me anxious and made my see red. The settings are described so well that it makes me want to visit Keeneston Kentucky and Shadows Landing South Carolina to (meet the wonderful characters that seem so real.)
I definitely recommend these books. Looking forward anxiously to the next books in the series.

Love them!!

Loved this story. Loved the crossovers! I’m happy that it had its Shadows Landing flair with a touch of Keenston mixed in. I’m a big fan of “ guest appearances” of favorite characters in different series, it gives them a little extra kick. Anyway, this story had a lot of action, sweet supportive romance, after an abusive marriage. I can’t wait for Harpers story!! Kathleen Brooks has several great series, you can’t go wrong!

Love this series!

Oh how I never get tired of these books! Can't go wrong with a town formed by pirates . In typical fashion there's oodles of suspense, treachery, secrets galore and one fierce female at the center! With a town that their church teaches "self defense" with swords and knives like their pirate ancestors how can you go wrong? I dare you not to fall inn love with both this and the original series it spun off from!

As usual, AWESOME!

You're killling me! I loved this book as much as every book of your I have read. You got it all, HUMOR, very important, thrilling crazy killers, love without end, and a family that simply doesn't quit!
And Savannah, now she was truly a kick ass heroine, I loved the Pilates line! Society bitch... Laughed till I cried there!

Bottom line another stellar novel by Kathleen Brooks!
Harper cannot come soon enough!

OMG Kept me guessing

I loved this book! Bow down to Mrs. Brooks and her story telling. I was talking to my husband about some of the IT stuff from Kale and he said she must have a background in IT. That is how realistic and bad@$$ her writing is.

I love all her books! Take a read and I am sure you will too

Another fantastic story.

Having read every book in the Bluegrass series and now the Shadows Landing cousins i eagerly awaited this one. I was not disappointed, this was every bit as good as the rest. I really don't know how Kathleen thinks up all these stories. Looking forward to the next which I assume will be about Harper.

Another fantastic read!

Kathleen Brooks never fails to disappoint. This is a fantastic series and it was great to see characters from the Bluegrass series make an appearance. As always there was laughs and intrigue. Ridge and Savannah were great lead characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this and highly recommend it.

Really enjoy Ridge and Savannah’s story. She is new to town and trying to repair the home she got in her divorce, he is on the auction block at a charity event and is perfect for the repairs she needs done. Neither of the, expect the sparks that will fly between them and the danger that is after both of them. Great story.

So wonderful

This book is just another great one from Kathleen Brooks. There is suspense - fire, car accidents, knife fights, and even some gun fire - in this book. I really enjoyed the way that the woman was a strong woman and yet appreciated the comfort and protectiveness from a strong guy. Can't wait for the next one.

Love all your series. However, the crossover Bluegrass series are my favorites. This particular series with it's close ties to the original one is quickly becoming a can't wait to read the next one favorite. Savannah and Ridge 's story has all the earmarks of the others, love, comedy and action. Can't wait for the next one, see, told ya!

I don’t think I could describe a story full of all the things I enjoy; however this one does. Love, suspense, laugh out loud humor, great small towns, and of course Bubba. Kathleen knows how to draw you into the story and makes you feel you’re right there with Savannah and Ridge. Love all theses characters and look forward to many more.

Another great story!

What a great story. Ridge and Savannah meet at the auction. Ridge helps her with more than her house reconstruction. Between all their struggles, they find true love. Once again, Kathleen Brooks weaves you into her story. Love the Davies Faulkner connection. Enjoy

This was fantastic, loved every single page. Love all the wacky and wonderful characters and the fact that Kenneston and Shadows Landing cross over. This story was action packed and kept me turning page after page wondering what's next. It also finished with me wanting more and of course the next story.

Love Shadows Landing

Savannah needs help to get her house livable and she buys a date with Ridge for his construction experience. As they fall in love they discover someone is trying to kill Savannah. There is quite a bit of crossover from Keenston which I love. And of course the get the HEA.
