This review is a reprint of one I posted last week on another blog tour for this great book. If you have not read anything by Robin Caroll, I urge you to give her novels a try. If you love good suspense, you won’t be sorry.
I first became familiar with Robin Caroll’s books as a monthly subscriber to Love Inspired Suspense. I was always glad when a new shipment contained one of her novels. With her newest series based in Eternal Springs, Louisiana, Robin has gifted her readers with even more of a good thing.
In the Shadow of Evil meets all my requirements for a good suspense novel. It has realistic and interesting characters, adequate action, and lots of clues that are not too obvious – plus a first-rate romance is the icing on the cake. Components of the story are the stuff of the evening news. In fact, one detail (minus the murder) has been under investigation on our local Memphis news this week.
I liked the way Robin dropped hints that could apply to more than one suspect. Every time I thought I knew the guilty party, something would prove me wrong. I hate it when I have a mystery solved halfway through a book. No chance of that with In the Shadow of Evil.
All things considered, In the Shadow of Evil is an excellent read. I give it my thumbs up and suggest that you pick up a copy asap.
