Isabel’s life seemed perfect. A successful business, beautiful house, adoring husband. And then she was dead.
For four years Jessica has never doubted that her sister Isabel’s death was an accident. But when Jessica’s young daughter seems to know long-forgotten details about her aunt’s past, Jessica can’t shake the feeling that there’s a more sinister truth behind the tragedy.
As Jessica unearths disturbing revelations about her sister, and about the people she loved and trusted most, it becomes clear Isabel’s life was less than perfect and that Jessica’s might also be at risk.
Did someone murder Isabel? Are they now after Jessica and her family? The key seems to lie in the hands of a child. Can Isabel reveal the truth from beyond the grave, or is the answer closer to home?
In Her Shadow is a gripping tale of family secrets, lies and obsession from the two million copy bestselling author Mark Edwards.
♥ My Non-Review Review ♥
Okay, so today is my stop on the tour for In Her Shadow. Earlier this year I read my first Mark Edwards book called The Retreat and it is my highlight five stars read of 2018 – You can read that review by clicking here. So when In Her Shadow came up I jumped at the chance. Now whilst The Retreat had a thread of eeriness that I could cope with In Her Shadows is packed to the brim with scare the life out of you goodness.
I managed 50% of the book but my nerves and anxiety couldn’t take anymore. This is purely a reflection on ME and not Mr Edwards book. I love his writing and the characters he brings to life. Mr Edwards is sublime at setting the scene and arousing your senses. I am just not good with the paranormal and I should have read more about it before I said yes.
If you love a good scary and heart-thumping read then In Her Shadows should be your next read.
