Shadows From the Past

Synopsis:   ..."It is the price you pay for choosing to be a cop.  Your brother's life..." Those words haunt her dreams and her waking moments.  LAPD  officer,  Aurora Kavvan cannot rest until she finds her brothers killer.  Digging into the past always brings back unpleasant things:  memories,  guilt...the hitman.  Now she is in a race against time to find the murderer before he finds her.  ͞Kill  her.  I  don͛t care how,  and  I  don͛t care where,  but  I want her dead now!  Someone was trying to kill his dead partner͛s  sister.  FBI  agent,  Jordan  Reiley will stop at nothing to protect the woman he loves.  Even if it means going against her wishes; putting himself between her and the man who murdered her brother.    Will  God keep them alive long enough for them to find the truth? 

My Thoughts:  This is an action-packed thriller!  This is the story of Aurora,  has some issues from her past that keep coming back in her dreams, but she won't stop looking for the man who killed her brother.

This book has a clear message that God is there for you, especially in the hard times. That we can't do everything on our own, that we do need to give our troubles to God.  It's a book about forgiveness, and not rushing into judgments of other people.

I enjoyed this novel, it was full of adventure, romance, and mystery.   It was easy to follow along and the characters were wonderful.  Some people may not notice quickly, but the main character Aurora suffers from PTSD; the nightmares, pushing people away all are part of it, and I believe that the author did a wonderful job bringing this forward.  I  did enjoy that she began to trust again, both in her friends and in God.

This was an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading the next books in the series... so look for the upcoming reviews of the shadow series.
