    It's a good read.

    When you think of small town America, you often think of simplicity, friendships, and loving people. In the small town of Campbell Creek, you will find each of these things, and so much more. After a dead body is discovered in an abandoned building, and the investigation is prematurely closed, a local police office proceeds to investigate the truth about the murder. With the help of his wife, who¿s involvement is centered around investigating questionable development in the small town, and the help of a new friend, the story takes an interesting twist of discovery.
    With believable characters, interesting relationships, and enough intrigue to make the story line appealing, Come The Shadows by Wendy Young, is a mystery/thriller that I am glad I stumbled upon. I look forward to reading more of her work.

    Highly Recommended

    Officer Will Harmon and his outspoken wife, Laura, were creatively brought together in the storyline to investigate a murder and corruption in their sleepy small town of Campbell Creek. This investigating couple serves up sardonic comments to each other with a slice of home made pie. They soon learn while fighting for their lives it is up to them to ultimately bring justice back to Campbell Creek. The author, Wendy L. Young, delivers a plot that keeps you locked into a story you have to read if you are a Mystery Reader, but hold to your book it is going to be a bumpy ride.

    Great mystery!

    Small towns have the most interesting people with fascinating stories, and Campbell Creek is no exception! Each character draws you in, and makes you want to hear their stories and watch their lives progress.

    The first murder in years certainly creates a lot of confusion, questions, and suspicions from everyone. The case quickly becomes bigger than anyone had expected. The future of this idyllic place is uncertain. Who is calling the shots and what are their motives?

    I definitely recommend this book! I can't wait for the sequel already!

    Even in small towns...things happen, good and bad. The book keeps you wondering and is hard to put down. It kept me trying to figure out who committed the murder and who was all involved. The characters are likable and believable. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

    A Pleasant Cozy Mystery

    Author Wendy Young showed an intricate plot with her book Come The Shadows. I enjoyed this cozy mystery with it's whodunnit storyline that kept me wondering what was around the next corner. The characters were well written and relatable and you definitely got a feel for Southern hospitality. It also made me very hungry for pie :0) Overall a job well done, I'll be looking to see what Wendy Young turns out next.

    This novel takes place in a small town, Campbell Creek. The main characters Will and Laura have a strong marriage which is a refreshing take on marriage in novels. They work together to solve the mysteries of the towns developments which tie in beautifully to the first murder in Campbell Creek in years. There is murder, cover ups, and developments you'll never see coming. Wendy Young has put together an intricate tale, and you won't want to leave Campbell Creek when it's over.

    I expect wonderful things from this author, and I look forward the next installment of Campbell Creek.

    Addictive!

    What do you get when you mix a small town crooked Sheriff who happens to be the brother-in-law of Police Officer Will Harmon, whose wife is fronting the protesters against the new and not-too-legal development going up in Campbell Creek which has the backing of the town Mayor who in turn and along with the Sheriff is trying to hide the real cause of death of a body found in the old bread factory even though the M.E. - who happens to be Harmon's sister - insists it was a murder? You get one of the most entertaining, engaging, fast paced, and addictive mystery plots you have ever read.

    In Come The Shadows Wendy L. Young introduces us to a a host of characters that - thankfully - have found a home in the second book of the Series, Red Sky Warning and a third one in the works. A peaceful small town suddenly isn't so peaceful any more...things start happening fast and loyalties will be tested, decisions will be made and officer Harmon will give all it takes to protect his family, his friends, and his town. Just go ahead and buy Come The Shadows and Red Sky Warning together, you will definitely want to read the sequel when you finish Come The Shadows.

    Great start to a series!

    Author Wendy Young brings mystery and murder to the town of Campbell Creek; a small town outside of a major metropolitan area. With this mystery she brings along a set of twists to the plot and brings people into the arena of the bad guys that you would never have seen coming.

    I enjoyed the writing style of Ms. Young. Her characters were very well developed. The friendships, the love, the necessary relationships between family members was very well laid out and easy to understand. Will and Laura are a wonderful couple who share in the joys of family and each other even after many, many years! Ms. Young was able to keep all the relationship in the book natural and real.

    The plot was deep, and gave you several good twists. Ms. Young did a good job of thinking up how to make this book travel and how to incorporate a lot into it. Her ability to write about the law enforcement world was pretty much accurate and I enjoyed it. The way she ended to book did it justice and I enjoyed seeing the little bit of time after the crime was solved. It helped tie up the book nicely.

    This appears to be Wendy's first novel, and I think she did an awesome job breaking out into the writing world. I look forward to seeing what she comes up with in the future.

    A page-turner! I won't confess how much sleep I lost the last night of reading this book. The end was so gripping I could not put it down! A small town with big behind-the-scenes political maneuvering gone bad. Corruption sinks its nasty claws, but it can't affect an Officer with character. Buy this book and the sequel Red Sky Warning....and be prepared to lose a little sleep while you keep reading all the way through to the exciting ending.

    Refreshing slice of small town charm

    Campbell Creek comes alive as a place in transition. Nothing contrasts it more than the aging veteran Will and the young, brash rookie cop Ricky.

    While Will is comfortable with the slow pace and traditional values of Campbell Creek, where the highlight of the day is a stop at the pie shop, Ricky is impatient to get in on the action.

    And wouldn't you know it? A body is found in an old abandoned factory and folks, we have a real mystery on hand.

    While Will grated on my nerves with his ol' boy attitude, I enjoyed the interplay him and Ricky. Will's wife gets embroiled in a dispute with developers and danger hits a little too close to home.

    The story was a bit too comfy and cozy for me and had a few loose ends left open for a possible sequel, but I enjoyed it for what it was, a commentary on the changing values of community and family.

    I like reading stories set in small towns. This one was no exception even though the story line was a little hard to believe and dragged at times. I will read more stories by Wendy Young.
