Malcolm "Shadow Days" is a delightful addition to Melinda Clayton's popular "Cedar Hollow" series, featuring in this novel protagonist Emily Holt who suddenly leaves her home in Florida and runs away on the anniversary of her husband's death.

She ends up by chance and destiny in Cedar Hollow. The sheriff wonders if she's crazy when he finds her and her broken-down car a few miles from town.

After she finds a place to stay, she begins to learn about the town and its people. Readers who've been with the series since it began with "Appalachian Justice," will recognize just about everybody. Those who read "Shadow Days" first will, like Emily Holt, learn who's who as the plot unfolds.

Emily has to come to terms with her husband's death, the remnants of her life in Florida, her two sons who are off at college and don't know where she is, and just who she is now in this off-the-beaten track town in West Virginia.

This is a well-told story with a cast of characters that increases in depth and scope as each new novel in the series is released. There are nice touches in the memories of characters such as collecting calendar towels and saving S&H Green Stamps. Very satisfying and hopefully not the end of the story.
