I am delighted to share my thoughts with you today on In Her Shadow Blog Tour which is out now
Isabel’s life seemed perfect. Successful business, beautiful house, adoring husband. And then she was dead.
For four years Jessica has never doubted that her sister Isabel’s death was an accident. But when Jessica’s young daughter seems to know long-forgotten details about her aunt’s past, Jessica can’t shake the feeling that there’s a more sinister truth behind the tragedy.
As Jessica unearths disturbing revelations about her sister, and about the people she loved and trusted most, it becomes clear Isabel’s life was less than perfect and that Jessica’s might also be at risk.
Did someone murder Isabel? Are they now after Jessica and her family? The key seems to lie in the hands of a child. Can Isabel reveal the truth from beyond the grave, or is the answer closer to home?
In Her Shadow is a gripping tale of family secrets, lies and obsession from the two million copy bestselling author Mark Edwards.
First of all not only am I a massive fan of paranormal stories but I am also a massive fan of Mark Edwards so has you can imagine I couldn’t wait to get my teeth into this story.
In Her Shadow we follow a story told in two parts which alternates between the past and present where we meet Jessica sister of Isabel The author takes us on a dark a creepy road when Jessica’s daughter seems to know a lot about Isabel’s past.
I have to say that I loved the first part of the story, then we move on to the second part and I wasn’t so sure in comparison. This was mainly due to the context and references of Isabel’s business for me I found it rather strange and I was starting to wonder where the whole story was going. But then low and below the author throws a twist in and I felt like we were back on track again.
Once again Mark Edwards has written a story that will have you hooked from start to finish, with each chapter leaving you wanting to know what is going to happen next. I loved the whole paranormal element mixed with crime. This is a story that will make you question if there is really life after death.
So if you’re looking for something a little different this is the book for you.
