There's something deadly lurking in the shadows at Shadow Creek . . .

The beginning was O.K. and then it went downhill. Too many conversations. Too much analysis of all the characters lives. It was so boring I gave up on reaching the end and I don't know how the story ended and I don't care. It was so predictable.

She's getting a bit gruesome. Running out of ideas? Was an okay read though.

This is one of the most suspensful books she has written. Couldn't put it down!

Couldn't finish - got tired of the repetition. Really disappointing. Author's best story was her first book.
