Book: In Her Shadow

 Book: In Her Shadow

Author: Mark Edwards

Pages: 367

This is my 28th read for the year

This is the story of Jessica.  Her sister, Isabel died 4 years ago from a fall from her home balcony.  As the family has come to terms with her death, Jessica's young daughter, Olivia starts acting strangely.  Tells Jessica that her Aunt Izzy has been talking to her - telling her she didn't fall, but that she was pushed.  This sends Jessica on a whirlind to find out the truth about her sister, and as everyone who was in Isabel's life becomes a suspect, Jess becomes more convinced that Izzy has chaneled herself through Olivia to help get to the truth.

This book was not great.  I listened to it, figured it might be an entertaining story while I did yard work.  I didn't really care for any of the characters.  The men are all terrible.  The plot is slow.  The unraveling of the mystery becomes sluggish.  I would say the first 1/4 of the book held my interest, and then it began to unravel.  I wanted to quit but decided to see where it was going, and it just ended badly.  

Do not recommend
