Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this overly-analytical tale of romantic suspense, Weaver (Within Striking Distance) depicts the intense bond between heroine Delaney Graye and her imaginary childhood friend, Max. After a car accident kills her husband and leaves her injured, Delaney returns to her grandmother's home to recuperate and recover her lost memories of the accident. To help cope, she thinks about Max, though in her mind, he's now all grown up. Little does she know that Max—a.k.a. John Harrison—is all too real and that the two of them forged their psychic connection as children when he saved her from drowning. Though Max tries to keep his distance from Delaney, he comes to her rescue time and again, especially when it becomes apparent that someone is out to hurt her. Unfortunately, the thin suspense plot, with its lack of suspects, quickly grows tiresome, as do Max's callous actions toward Delaney, and her obsession with him. (Aug.)

The car accident left her husband dead and Delaney Wainright suffering from amnesia. She returns home to heal and she hopes to recover her memories. She begins to feel her imaginary childhood friend Max has returned to help her regain her memory. However the Max who saved her life as a child is not a kid. John Maxwell Harrison never forgot the little girl he rescued from drowning. He believed back then and has affirmed now they had a special mental link. An abused child who knew at seven he would one day kill viscous Virgil Budge, Max felt the world ended when Delaney left years ago. Now as an adult he becomes Delaney's "imaginary" friend and lover. When someone tries to kill his Delaney, Max, who believes he does not deserve her, knows he must reveal to his beloved he is not imaginary so that he can keep her safe. Delaney's Shadows is a taut twisted thriller that grips readers from the beginning when Max turns seven and knows his life calling is to kill the SOB who abuses him and his mom. Readers will empathize with him as the child hides in safe dreams while the adult has re-found the connection that saved his mind as a child. Delaney is a good person struggling with what has happened. Readers will enjoy this strong romantic suspense due to the lead couple and deep secondary characters. Harriet Klausner

Original and well-written with a mystery that kept me guessing and a creative psychic romance. I intend to read the next book in the series.
