"Shadows of the Past" {a review}

In Shadows of the Past (Logan Point Book #1): A Novel, Taylor is a profiler and a professor at a local college. Nick is an author looking for his brother. Their paths collide when a stalker targets Taylor as she begins to investigate her father's disappearence. When their journeys take them both home to Tennessee, their unlikely friendship blossoms into something more. Until Taylor announces she thinks she wants to be a cop. Will Nick end everything over his fear of losing someone else?

This was such a fun read. I didn't expect the ending that came at all. The mystery of it all will keep you coming back for more. I did find some parts a little unrealistic BUT it added to the suspense throughout. There were also a few unanswered questions at the end of the book, so the author will revisit these characters again. I did like the fact that the characters never lost their identities and stayed true to themselves. In some cases a character will start off as a strong independent person and by the end of the book be a damsel in distress who can't do anything on her own. Not this story though. I also realize that there is a story to be told and that therefore somethings have to be rushed, but I felt like Taylor and Nick's relationship was a bit thrown together at times. Overall though, this is a fun read with a suspenseful story line that a mystery fan will enjoy.
