Mackenzie Clair finally has this whole ghost-hunting psychic thing figured out. The Soul Searchers are a hit, she’s got pet-parenting down, and she even has a plan to banish the poltergeist running amok at a lakeside cabin. Best of all, Donn’s Hill feels like home.

A world-famous paranormal debunker thinks the psychics in Donn

I am not a fan of horror, at all. I loved Donn's Hill because of writing and the characters. This one involved me quickly, but was too close to my horror line. I still love the characters and the writer's descriptions are unique and put me in story. I am recommend

Mac is back!

Donn's Shadow is the second book in the Soul Searchers series and ever since I heard there was going to be another book, well, there was a wee bit of joyful squealing involved.

Mackenzie Clair has some unfinished business. Just banish a ghost she failed to move on from an abandoned cabin a few months earlier.

Other than that, everything this is just fine, I mean, evil spirit aside that is. Work, friends, love life, it's all coming together for Mac. So when a young hotshot paranormal

Larrinaga blends high suspense, tense mystery, a poignant account of finding friendships and loyalty, and a touching narrative to craft this hard-to-put-down paranormal mystery series.

In the first book, untimely death of her father and a broken relationship forces Mackenzie Clair to leave her home and city behind to start afresh in her favorite childhood vacation spot, the small town of Donn’s Hill. As her lost psychic ability to talk to the dead returns, Mackenzie joins the team of Soul

Dons Shadow the prequel of Don’s Hill is truly amazing! I don’t normally love Horror stories but this series I have loved and have been so entranced of the storyline, the characters are amazing and I definitely have my favorites, I won’t tell. Macs powers are truly a gift, it makes me wonder where in the family tree it comes from, I know she gets it from her mother but where did it start? Questions questions. Mac’s trusted sidekick Striker the cat that is everything you want in an animal, love, ...more

Mac is getting into the swing of things with her job with the squad and her relationship with Graham is growing stronger. That doesn't keep her from being smack dab in the middle of another mess. Still a little lost when it comes to the psychic world she now finds herself deep in, she finds herself under spiritual attack and on the hook for murder. This author truly writes a compelling story. The characters are fun and quirky and yeah in Mac's case naive, but that's what makes it fun. She really ...more

Author Caryn Larrinaga does it again! The adventures of Mac, Striker and the Soul Searchers crew in Donn’s Shadow picks up from where Donn’s Hill left off and I promise you, it does not disappoint. I was flipping pages into the wee hours of the morning curious to find out what happened next. The writing is so detailed and rich, the imagery in my head gave me physical goosebumps at times! I laughed out loud. I learned new vocabulary words. I cheered HARD at a specific event (no spoilers!). If you ...more

So I read the first book in this series, Donn’s Hill, on KU, and I loved it. Well written, really good plot, mostly likable characters. I was so excited to read Donn’s Shadow that I finished it in one night! It sucks you in from the very first. My only complaint would be that one of the main characters had a somewhat unrealistic change in personality, but it was easy to overlook because the storytelling was that good. I can’t wait for the next book!

Another great book. Book 2, just like book 1, I finished within 24 hours. The author builds on locations in the first book and expands Mac's abilities as she learns more about her mother's past. Book 2 takes place a little while after book 1 and I feel there could be a short story book 1.5 if the author wanted to go that way. Striker continues to be a great character and continues to be more than just another cat. The story ends but there will be a book three and the ending leads in to book ...more

When I requested this book I didn’t realize it was Book 2 of a series, so I was kind of disappointed, but the book was pretty good on it’s own. I liked it okay. It had some small language that I could have done without and some other things , but wasn’t much, so just skipped over. Overall, book was somewhat interesting, not what I thought it would be, though. Thank you to #NetGalley and the publishers of #DonnsShadow for opportunity to read and review honestly.

Donn's Shadow by Caryn Larrinaga Book 2 in the series.
This is a delightful cozy mystery with paranormal themes and characters. This is a stand alone book, we follow the characters from the previous book and get introduced to new characters. I enjoyed the story telling and writing style of this author and look forward to the next book. I read book 1 and when I finished that one, I purchased Book 2 and continued reading. An engaging story, just in time for halloween. 4 stars.

I so much enjoyed Larrinaga's Donn's Hill, that I could not wait to get my hands on her newly released Donn's Shadow. What an entertaining read! The heroine is a likable character and well-developed as are most of the others in the Soul Searchers group. For anyone who enjoys the supernatural, cats and sleuthing, I recommend this author!

What a great book! It was so hard to put down. It did a great job pulling in what you needed to know from the book. The pacing was fantastic, leaving me wanting to go to the next chapter after every one I finished. If it’s been a while since you kept reading a book with eyes barley open as you tried to stay awake and you want that again, pick up this book.

Mac and Striker are awesome characters and in this second book, they have to find a murderer before Mac pays for the crime. A great cast of characters, a wonderful town, and a fabulous mystery series.
