Review: Shadow of Suspicion by Christy Barritt



First, computer specialist Laney Ryan's accused of kidnapping her neighbor's daughter—and now someone's trying to kill her. The police don't believe Laney's story…except for Detective Mark James, whose instincts say Laney isn't guilty. Together, Mark and Laney must figure out who really abducted the teen and uncover why they're framing Laney. But when their search for the truth turns deadly, Mark realizes his feelings for Laney aren't strictly professional and that he'll stop at nothing to keep her safe. With a dangerous suspect swiftly closing in, can they find the missing girl and clear Laney's name…before their possible future together is fatally cut short?

My Review

Four Stars

Someone's setting Laney Ryan up for a crime she didn't commit. Despite the evidence, Detective Mark James is not convinced of Laney's guilt. Can they find the real culprit before things turn deadly?

Laney's a bit of a loner who has trust issues, but she's the type of person who wants to help others. She was super easy to relate to. And Mark's a super likable, good guy.

Christy Barritt is one of the masters of romantic suspense. Every one of her books has hooked me from the very first page and never lets go. Shadow of Suspicion is no different. It was a fantastic and heart-stopping thrill ride that I did not want to put down. There was never a good place to stop. The ending wrapped up kinda quickly, but all in all, it was a great suspense that I highly recommend!

Favorite Quote

“Her peers had thought she was strange in high school because she'd been so quiet, but she'd always thought that she was being the person God created her to be. She'd rather be different than compromise her authenticity.”
