Shadowed in Silk by Christine Lindsay

Shadowed in Silk
My rating: 4 stars

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed ‘Shadowed in Silk’! I didn’t know what to expect, since this is the first book I’ve read by Christine Lindsay, but I’m happy to say that it was great!

‘Shadowed in Silk’ opened my eyes to Hinduism and their customs. I found Abby’s story very sad – her father, aunt, and even her husband never seemed to love her or even care about her.

There are some twists in ‘Shadowed in Silk’ that I did not expect; however, I did guess some of the things that occurred!

I also very much enjoyed the story of forgiveness – I think it was told nicely through the novel’s story.

I definitely look forward to reading more books by Christine Lindsay and would enjoy reading a sequel if one is written.

Dangerous Mercy: A Novel (Secrets of Roux River Bayou)
I’ve read many books by Kathy Herman (including ‘False Pretenses’) and I was pretty sure, before I even started ‘Dangerous Mercy’, that I would enjoy it!

Thankfully, I was right and ‘Dangerous Mercy’ was very enjoyable, held my attention, and was overall just a great mystery/suspense!

When I read the first book in this series (‘False Pretenses’), Adele Woodmore was one of my favorite characters – mainly because she was so friendly, merciful, and forgiving. In ‘Dangerous Mercy’, though, that mercy may put her life in danger.

I was so excited to read more about the Broussard’s – and learn what’s been happening since ‘False Pretenses’ with them, the Langleys, and other characters we met in the first book.

I liked pretty much all of the characters in ‘Dangerous Mercy’. Some of my favorites were Adele (as mentioned above), Zoe, Vanessa, Noah, and the guys from the restaurant – I loved how they interacted with Grace.

There was so much suspense and mystery in ‘Dangerous Mercy’ that I found it easy to read and now I’m patiently looking forward to reading ‘Relentless Pursuit’ when it releases.

I most definitely recommend ‘Dangerous Mercy’ if you enjoy mysteries, but I would suggest you read ‘False Pretenses’ first.
