Book Review - Fading Shadows - Susan C. Finelli

Saturday, June 15, 2013


Fading Shadows is a complex book about family dynamics which go on behind the scenes of a seemingly happy life! Both a mystery and a thriller it will keep you riveted as you try to figure out what is going to happen next. I actually did not foresee the ending which for obvious reasons I am not going to tell you--I am going to let the back of the book reveal what it will and say only--buy it, borrow it, what ever it takes--read it!!


From the back of the book:

Mourning the death of her grandfather, and the loss of Daniel Torrelle, the love of her life, Kay Straga buries her sadness deep within her guilt ridden, broken heart.

Although Kay marries Jake Crane, her heart retains its love for her Daniel. More than twenty years later, Kay’s daughter, Sydney, becomes the target of an elaborate plan to seek revenge on Kay for a sin long ago committed, but not forgotten.

Daniel returns to Kay to protect her and her family, only to destroy family harmony and unlock the secret of his and Kay’s past. A secret, that once divulged, keeps her locked in its clutches, from which there is no escape.

This book can be purchased at Amazon and Barnes & Noble
