The reviews are stacking up, and I need to take a few days to catch up on them. Recently, I finished Shadow in Serenity by Terri Blackstock. This was the first one of her books I had read, and I loved it so much.So much was happening at the house and I needed to put it down, but I couldn't. She is a wonderful writer.
Carny Sullivan grew up in the zany world of a traveling carnival. Quaint and peaceful Serenity, Texas, has given her a home, a life, and a child. Logan Brisco is the smoothest, slickest, handsomest man Serenity, Texas has ever seen. But Carny Sullivan knows a con artist when she sees one---and she's seen plenty, starting with her father. As far as Carny Sullivan can tell, she's the only one in town who has his number. Because from his Italian shoes to his movie-actor smile, Logan has the rest of the town snowed. Carny is determined to reveal Brisco's selfish intentions before his promise to the townspeople for a cut in a giant amusement park sucks Serenity dry. Yet, as much as she hates his winning ways, there is a man behind that suave smile, a man who may win her heart against her will. Shadow in Serenity is a modern-day Music Man, penned by a Christy Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author.
I loved the ending, but I won't tell you what it is. Terri said she was not glorifying crime. To me she did not. It made sense to me when I came to the end. We can all be conned by someone. It's easy for a real artist to do it. Thanks Terri for a wonderful book.
