Blurb: A SHADOW IN THE WINDOW
Nia Hollister doesn’t scare easily. She’s returned to Ash, Kentucky, with a vengeance–and with a mission: find the killer who brutally ended her cousin’s life. What she didn’t count on was trembling with desire every time she sees Law Reilly. If any man can help her escape the nightmares for a while, it’s him. But can she allow herself to take comfort in those strong arms when her sister’s killer still roams free?
She may think she’s a bad ass, but she should not have come back to his town. He is watching her–as she slips into Law Reilly’s house, as she storms into the sheriff’s office. These men won’t be able to protect her when her time comes. Timing is everything, though he can’t wait forever. She’s nosing around the woods, looking for his hiding place. Yes, he is watching her . . . through the window . . . in her bed . . .
If she’s not scared, she should be . . . because he is very good at what he does.
Review: As the third and final book in this series, this ended on a better note than the first two as there weren’t any hanging frustrations left at the end.
I liked the fact that the story was resolved by the characters figuring everything out rather than a big reveal. It was fully played out and not just handed over in an info dump at the last minute. Actually, I love that it turned out that way. As a reader, if you paid really close attention, you could have figured some of it out along the way, but there were enough counter hints dropped to keep you from being 100% sure for a while at least, which was also really nice.
The series as a whole was really good, even with my frustrations with the first two book. Each book was enough different from the others that they in no way felt cookie cutter. They each brought something new and a bit different to the overall story. This book still had the romance story, but unlike the first two it wasn’t the biggest part of the story. That was balanced pretty equally with solving the big serial killer arch that was introduced in book 1.
I think I would have liked a little bit more of a look at the aftermath at the end to know what the fallout was and how it impacted these characters. This was a great series even without that.
