It wasn’t easy getting to Shadow Point. Turns out it’s even harder to leave.
Madison McPeake, not in the best mood most of the time, has just been not-quite fired, told her brother is dead, discovered she’s responsible for a five-year old niece she’s never met and realized she has to go all the way to San Diego to see to her brother's affairs.

I enjoyed Shadow Point. It’s a great story. But I must admit, Para-Normal is not really my thing. So I’m not sure if I understood what was going on. But we still got the happy ending, so all’s well.

I'd give this a bit more than three stars -- it was coherently plotted, the main character, Madison, had a humorous, distinctly individual voice and the writing was skillful. I wouldn't rate it 100% for plausibility, but I managed a willing-enough suspension of disbelief and went with the departures from realism without protest. I felt the author 'played fair' when it came to plot elements that went beyond the entirely natural world.

I'd willingly read other titles by this author, and
For whatever reason, I found the first few pages a bit jarring - the story is told in first person and there's some wonky sentence structure and non-sequitors. By the fifth or sixth page, the story and the narrator won me over and I devoured this book in two days. Some nicely done suspense and spooky elements that weren't overshadowed by romance (there is some, but the focus on the book isn't romance). The ending came a bit too quickly but overall I enjoyed the book.

I read this last year, and it was a good book. This is one of those suspense books that I truly liked. I didn't have to force myself to finish reading it just because I was halfway through the story.

I think I'm going to read her other books when I get my hands on them.

Kudos to the author!

This is a ripping good story with well defined characters and palpable tension and intrigue. Madison McPeake is real, flawed, and believable. The setting becomes part of the story and draws the reader closer to the main characters.
I would like to see what becomes of Madison, Katie, and Pipe.
