From USA Today best-selling author Maureen A. Miller comes this romantic thriller that spans the Atlantic.

Sophie Diem’s boss has skipped town, abandoning their counseling firm and taking her investment money with him. As she seeks to rebuild her professional career, she is distressed by the appearance of a stranger. The man keeps to the shadows, but he is definitely stalking her.

In an attempt to flee him, she accepts a job offer…in London. Surely, crossing the Atlantic would be enough to deter her shadow.

Glenn Barber is a desperate man. He sorely wants answers. The man who can supply them has gone missing, though. Now, all Glenn can do is go after the next best thing: the man’s former employee, Sophie Diem.

Sophie is shocked to spot her shadow in London. What she learns is that Glenn, the shadow, is not a stalker but rather her only protection.

As her attraction to Glenn grows, together, they conspire to locate her former boss and stop him before he can harm others.

USA TODAY bestselling author, Maureen A. Miller worked in the software industry for fifteen years. She crawled around plant floors in a hard hat and safety glasses hooking up computers to behemoth manufacturing machines. The job required extensive travel. The best form of escapism during those lengthy airport layovers became writing.

Maureen’s first novel, WIDOW’S TALE, earned her a Golden Heart nomination in Romantic Suspense. After that she became hooked to the genre. In fact, she was so hooked she is the founder of the JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE website.

Recently, Maureen branched out into the Young Adult Science Fiction market with the popular BEYOND Series. To her it was still Romantic Suspense…just on another planet!

Narrator Bio

I studied theatre in college, and even participated in storytelling festivals when I was growing up. I’m a practicing attorney, and love to participate in ACX projects to keep my creative side happy and fulfilled. I can perform fiction and non-fiction, in neutral-American or Southern-American accents.

I live in North Carolina with my husband, toddler, and pound puppy. I have a soft spot for romance and I love a good laugh!

Review 2

It is so easy to get lost in this book! I started it and did not realize the time until it was over. I loved it so so much and I cannot wait to read more books by this author!

I was sold by the book – a woman having to rebuild her life after being crossed by her boss and also having to run away to escape a lurking man. The blurb is detailed enough to give you a glimpse into what happens here but I’m telling you, the mystery and romance go so well together!

The author does put the right amount of suspense and love that we don’t lose interest for one in favor of the other. This is something that sometimes happens to me when reading this type of stories. I find myself looking forward to see how the couple is doing, while missing some details about the action behind this. We have front row seats to both in this case. Also, I managed to form a connection to both Sophie and Glenn – I cheered for her to rebuild her career and also cheered for Glenn to find his answers.

Brandy Skelly did such a great job narrating the story. She managed to build the suspense, to capture each character’s reactions in the key moments and as well I had no issues understanding who was who.

Even if I am not a fan of the cover, I liked the story very very much and I am so anxious to read more books by this author. If you’ll check her Goodreads’ page, there are many books to read 🙂 And all are already highly rated. I hope you’ll give “Shadow” a try and come back with your opinion 🙂 Happy Reading!
