Editorial Reviews

Author of the Angel Murphy series - Gerry McCullough
Sloane reminds me a little of Kinsey Millone in Sue Grafton's Alphabet series, and that's a serious compliment. I don't mean to suggest that Bradshaw has borrowed anything from Grafton - just that Sloane is not an over the top, unbelievable character, but is someone we might feel we could meet walking down the street, natural and likeable.
Author of The Lost Journal - Chris Blewitt
Ms. Monroe discovers hidden clues that lead to a sinister kidnapper and an even more sinister motive. Page-turning from the first chapter to the last, Stranger in Town brings fiction to the edge of reality.
Author of the Louise Golden series - Laurie Hanan
The story flowed quickly with a protagonist who is easy to like. It was hard to put down from the intriguing first chapter all the way to the spine-tingling conclusion.
Author of Vada Faith - Barbara Whittington
This is one of those stories that kept me reading until the very end. I simply could not put it down for very long until I was back turning those pages.

Meet the Author

Born and raised in Southern California, Cheryl Bradshaw became interested in writing at a young age, but it was almost two decades before she put pen to paper. In 2009 Bradshaw wrote Black Diamond Death (Book One: Sloane Monroe series). Within six weeks it entered the top 100 in two different categories and remained in the top 100 for over a year. Since that time, Bradshaw has written five additional novels in the series. In 2013, Bradshaw introduced a new paranormal thriller series: Addison Lockhart, the first book titled Grayson Manor Haunting.

Bradshaw is the founder of IWU on Facebook, a writers group with over 2,000 members. In August 2012, Bradshaw was named one of Twitter's seven best authors to follow. In 2013, Bradshaw's novel, Stranger in Town, was chosen as a Shamus Award finalist in the category of best P.I. novel of the year. She was the only female nominated in her category.

    This novel deals with child abduction in a whole new way. Maybe

    This novel deals with child abduction in a whole new way. Maybe that's why it drew me in initially. I honestly had no idea how it was going to end, and books that keep the reader guessing are refreshing. I felt for the child, and I felt for other characters in the book as I came to know them too. Her writing is fast-paced, and she leaves out all the stuff that doesn't matter, and just sticks to the story. I like the main character, Sloane, especially because she is tough, yet vulnerable when she needs to be, and she never takes no for an answer. I'm looking forward to the next book!

    Excellent. The best in the series so far. I like these novels because we learn more about the protagonist as each story is told, but at the same time, they are also great stand-alone reads. The subject of kidnapping is not a new one and has been written about plenty of times, but I have never seen it quite like this. It had just the right amount of suspense and danger. The characters are real and vivid and I was completely engrossed in the main storyline as well as the developing storyline between Cade and Sloane. I am hoping to see him written into other books in this series in the future. An excellent read, one which I recommend.

    Stranger in Town by Cherly Bradshaw, It is a very good story. I could not put it down last night until I finished it. It is about 2 little girls that was kidnapped. The 6 year old was taken 2 years before the 4 year. The 4 years father called in a PI named Sloane and she ended up working with a cop named Cade. This book is in the box set Deadly Dozen.

    Now you see her, now you don’t!!! In a blink of an eye six-year-old Olivia Hathaway
    disappears from the grocery store where she was shopping with her Mom. The author
    address the current problem of child abduction in our society and the difficult trails for
    law enforcement to pursue.
    Sloane Monroe, PI gets involved in the hunt to find Olivia only to discover the
    disappearance of another little girl. Sloane connecting the two kidnappings find herself
    working with Detective Cade. They vow to bring both children back alive!!
    The book had wholesome characters. While being full of suspense, there is a hint of
    romance in the air.
    While the book is the fourth in the series, it is good as a stand alone. It is a fast reading
    book.

    Stranger In Town

    I really enjoyed this book, as I have all the books by Cheryl Bradshaw. The level of suspense is great; and she incorporates fact and details that really fill out a storyline.

    I've loved all the previous Sloan Monroe novels by Cheryl Bradsh

    I've loved all the previous Sloan Monroe novels by Cheryl Bradshaw and this one is no exception - Cheryl delivers every time. This mystery, about a missing child, has so many twists and turns you'll be guessing "whodunit" right to the very end. I totally recommend this book if you're a mystery lover and a fan of strong female characters.

    Short story

    This story really did not keep my intetest mainly because it was too short and i coyldn't get my heart into it. Thete was not enough character development in it so could not get engrossed. Definitely not a cliff hanger. Sorry for the typos but on a very small keyboard.
