Aurora watches in disbelief as a lone gunman fires at her beloved brother. Unable to help him, she sinks into a pit of despair and loneliness, turning her back on everyone that cares for her. Including God.
Faced with some tough questions, like is it okay to keep living, is she betraying the dead if she doesn't find his killer, and is it okay to love again when she feels so very unlovable, follow along as she manages to remember that God is the One Who is truly in control and yes ~ life is for the living, and is not to be confused with forgetting. Life is a gift, and with the help of FBI agent Jordan, she will learn a most important lesson.
A good, clean and fulfilling read that I enjoyed.

Christian Fiction Mystery/Suspense - a must read!
Aurora Kavvan, an LAPD officer, shuts herself off from everyone that loves and cares about her. She blames herself for her brothers death. She has even stopped praying and talking to God. How could God let this happen to her brother? It is like she has no right for happiness or forgiveness. Everyone must blame her. That is what she is thinking and instead of facing them with her feelings and opening her heart to God she puts up a wall. It is harder to forgive oneself than it is to forgive others.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
When she is faced with death threats and a friend/partner ends up seriously injured, she is thrown back into her ex fiancee, FBI agent, Jordan Reiley's life. Not as his girlfriend but under protective custody. He protects her not only because it is his job but because he is still in love with her. But she still has a wall up between her heart and everyone else including him.
The author spins a good tale of suspense. I can normally figure out who the secretive bad person is but not in this book. I thought I had it figured out several times. This was definitely a good mystery to the very end. It was hard to put the book down. I am so glad I can jump right into books 2 and 3 in the series which are availabe now in ebook.
I highly recommend this book if you enjoy good mystery/suspense.
I rate this book a 5 out of 5
I received a copy of this book from Lightning Book Promotions. I was in no way compensated for my opinion on this book. These are my own thoughts and opinion.

'Shadows from the Past' by Ashley Dawn is a Christian suspense story of a woman police officer who, while working undercover, is also trying to find her brother's killer. "It's the price you pay for being a cop" as Aurora Kavvan watched her brother Lance gunned down before her very eyes. Not only did she lose her brother that night but her faith in God as well. As her dreams continue of that fateful night her partner Joe knows the only thing to do is pray for her for God to release the demon that is antagonizing her over her brother's death which she feels was her fault. With her partner being shot at, reuniting with her ex fiancé, Aurora realizes what she almost lost and that she still loves him and her faith is still there. She just has had it all hidden. As we follow the journey of Aurora through her memories and dreams we are taken back to the past up to the now as we watch love and faith return to Aurora's life.
This was a book that I enjoyed reading. The elements that I like are all combined into one, Christian-based undertone, suspense and sweet romance. The book does tend to have quite a few flashbacks through dreams or memories, but if one keeps in mind the story line one will not get lost between the past and the now. I connected easily with the characters in the book and their faith. I think what I got out of the book as I read was that no matter what adversity comes upon the person or what tragedy befalls them, as long as one keeps the faith, God will handle it and turn the situation around. From the beginning to the final chase I found this book to be a delightful read. It is well-written with a touch of humor at times. Ashley Dawn is a new author to me and I will be looking forward to the book two in the Shadow Series. Recommended for all who like a clean written, Christian-based suspense book.

A new twist on Christian fiction.
I am a consultant with little to no time on my hands. I bought this book upon recommendation from a friend, and could NOT put it down. I seriously stayed up from 10 to about 2 one night until I had finished the whole thing. Highly recommended. Hopefully there will be more from this author! God bless - CLWas this review helpful?
