Rory Miller had one chance to fight back and she took it. Rory survived… and the serial killer who attacked her escaped. Now that the infamous Steven Nell is on the loose, Rory must enter the witness protection with her father and sister, Darcy, leaving their friends and family without so much as a goodbye.
Starting over in a new town with only each other is unimaginable for Rory and Darcy. They were inseparable as children, but now they can barely stand each other. As the sisters settle in to Juniper Landing, a picturesque vacation island, it seems like their new home may be just the fresh start they need. They fall in with a group of beautiful, carefree teens and spend their days surfing, partying on the beach, and hiking into endless sunsets. But just as they’re starting to feel safe again, one of their new friends goes missing. Is it a coincidence? Or is the nightmare beginning all over again?
One of the many things I like about this book is the thrill and suspense. I jumped right into it within the first chapter. Since Kate Brian's writing is really well written, I actually feel like I'm Rory. On the vacation island, Juniper Landing, things are very fishy. There happens to be no mail, newsletters and Internet connection. The vacationers and residents are pretty suspicious too, hiding secrets and lying to save themselves. I must admit that being at Juniper Landing was like being in the Twilight Zone. When I finished, I was dying to know when the sequel to Shadowlands will be out.
Unfortunately, Shadowlands is not coming out until January 8th, 2013. In the meantime, you should check out Kate Brian's Private and Privilege series http://authors.simonandschuster.com/Kate-Brian/20269767
