When I start reading books, I don’t usually enjoy jumping in mid-series. Even when the books can be read as standalone novels, there are occasional references to the previous ones.
Patricia Bradley’s second novel in the Logan Points series sounded really good. So when a review opportunity came up, I wanted to take it. Then I noticed it was the second book. While, it sounds like the two stories are separate and can be read independently, I still wanted to read the first book. I’m definitely glad I did. I was not disappointed!

Mystery is what helps make a good suspense novel, well, good. So two are even better. But what about when that novel has three mysteries? Shadows of the past involves a missing father, a stalker, and a troubled young man. Each of the three are shrouded in mystery, and yet they are all seem somewhat connected.
I was blown away by this novel. While I felt it started a bit slow with a lot of characters, by the end, I was so drawn in, and it was hard to put down.
Every page seems to crank the intensity level up a notch and the ending was everything I could hope it would be.
The characters were all well written. Both Taylor and Nick were extremely well developed. As a good suspense novel should, the villain in this book was hard to identify. Every time I think I figured out who they were, the character would do something that made me think that they were one of the good people. I like a novel that can keep me guessing and keep offering surprises in the last pages of the book.
I’m quite excited to be able to review the second book in Patricia Bradley’s Logan Point Series tomorrow, so be sure to come back and check that novel out as well!
I would love to hear from you! Do you enjoy reading series of books? Do you jump into the middle or prefer to start from the beginning?
