Overview

Shots fired! Officer down! Sergeant Stacey O'Hara, a Sheriff's deputy is seriously wounded during a shootout and is near death. Sergeant Jay Reardon, a deputy from Shannon's Creek, Virginia, is an out of town visitor riding with an officer friend. He comes to her aid and is stunned by Stacey's likeness to his missing wife. About to pass over the divide between the living and the dead, Stacey is stopped by a spirit from the other side. She tells Stacey that she must not die. During the long months of recovery, Stacey realizes that the spirit is not a figment of her imagination and accepts it as an invisible entity whose voice is comforting, supportive and who is encouraging her to get well. The entity identifies herself as Ellie Reardon. She explains no one knows she is dead, only her killer. Ellie seeks Stacey's help in finding her body and her murderer. Stacey's godfather offers her his summer home in Shannon's Creek, in South Western Virginia, to recuperate. On her arrival Stacey meets a disgruntled sheriff and his deputy Jay Reardon, whom she doesn't remember. Stacey quickly learns that she could pass for Ellie's twin. A vital bit of information Ellie neglected to tell her. High on the suspect list is Jay Reardon, who was about to divorce Ellie when she disappeared. The attraction between Stacey and Jay is something they can't ignore. They decide it's better to join forces in solving the mystery of Ellie's disappearance and murder. [Cover art Mary Z. Wolf]

Editorial Reviews

Darlene Howard
Shannon's Creek is a real keeper. This book was very well written. The characters flowed so well together that they all seemed like old friends. I could feel myself in the scenes with these characters. If ever a book is a real page-turner, this one is. I say to June Mack Bradley, if all of your work is this great, please tell me where I might find the rest. Keep up the good work. 5 Daggers!
Fran Snow
With breathtaking imagery and lively characters, Shannon's Creek quickly becomes a place you want to return, even after the narration has ended. This is an excellent story that stretches the imagination and entices the reader to wonder what secrets their own towns may hold.
