Editorial Reviews

Reader - Lisa Phillips
Shannon Bailey's Shadowbrook Manor is a step back in time and a glimpse of a love that reaches beyond death. As fans of Ms. Bailey have become accustomed to, this story takes twists and turns, leaving the reader anxious to unravel a mystery. Her descriptions are so precise you can smell the sea and agonize over a forbidden affair. This story was another captivating tale from an author who has the ability to whisk readers away to a time and place other than their own.

Shadowbrook Manor is a book that will keep you captivated from beginning to end! From the minute you start your journey with Samantha, you are thrown into a whirlwind of lies, deceit, and a romance so pure and so true, it lasted throughout lifetimes. This is a book that you can't just leisurely read, but one that demands your attention. I love it, and cannot wait for more from Shannon Bailey!

I've read Shadowbrook Manor three times this week. There really isn't any other way to explain how magnificent the latest from Shannon Bailey truly is!...on the lovely Mackinac Island... She has magnificently described the scents, flavors, and views of this gorgeous place.
I'll admit I cried all three times through the HEA and have placed Shadowbrook Manor on my permanent Keeper List of great romances!

Meet the Author

Hello! Thanks for stopping by!

I like to think of myself as an author of tales that are two scoops of romantic suspense smothered in mystery and topped with a twist... Sorry, just realized I'm a bit peckish.

Overall, my preferred era, both personally and artistically, is the Victorian Age and its influence in America. I simply love the clothing, medical and scientific advances, and social graces of that time period.

Let's see, what else could I include here? ...Oh yes, influences and/or inspirations for my novels.

1.)THE SECRET LIFE OF RACHEL HILLERMAN, formerly THE HAUNTED HILLERMAN HOUSE - My hometown of Dixon, IL and family and friends.
Trivia: The Truesdell bridge collapse scene described in the book is a true historic event. More information can be found on the Dixon Historical Society's website.

2.)MURDER AND MAYHEM IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS, formerly HER KNIGHT WITH A SHINING STAR - The town of New Castle's rich mining and railroad history.
Trivia: The Marshal Schneider mentioned in the book was the real town marshal at the time of the strikes and he was written up several times for drinking and gambling while on duty.

3.)THE BLACKWELL BROTHERS, formerly THE UNWILLING - Bram Stoker's Dracula character as well as the cult-classic films, FRIGHT NIGHT and LOST BOYS.
Trivia: At that time, having recently read THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY by Erik Larson, I was sure to include a small scene at the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago and the amazing George Washington Ferris Wheel. (Makes me wonder, was the London Eye modeled after it?)

4.)SHADOWBROOK MANOR - The film SOMEWHERE IN TIME and the island itself. From the first moment I saw it, on the approach from the ferry, I knew I would write a novel about the magical little island.
Trivia: I modeled the character Tobias Walker after actor, Sam Elliott.

Should you read any of my little ole stories, would love to hear what you think! A nice little review or rating.

Again, thanks for stopping by!

Cheers!
