When death tracks her every move, dare she trust a man with his own elusive secrets? Determined to piece together the shattered remains of her life, world-renowned artist, JJ Frost fled halfway across the country to the inviting township of Sutter Hollow. She soon discovers the town holds shocking mysteries…and unexpected monsters. A series of brutal murders takes the peaceful community by surprise, and murmurs of sinister creatures dance on the night wind. The killer leaves bizarre clues as he fixates his deadly obsession on JJ, and, once again, she must face her nightmares come to life. Can she trust the town’s irresistible lawman to protect her from this enigmatic zealot’s warped sense of duty, or will the sheriff’s own secrets prove more than she can endure? Sheriff Cameron Walker tracks the Apostle, a twisted serial killer who reveals the citizens of Sutter Hollow’s dark secrets—one biblical Deadly Sin at a time. Soon the darkest secret of all—Cam's own hidden heritage—is threatened with exposure. When Cam stumbles upon the mysterious, alluring newcomer skulking in the woods near the scene of a brutal homicide, JJ Frost’s haunting eyes and backbone of steel sparks his pagan instincts on a frightening level. Cam has justifiable reasons to mistrust the ancient legend of imprinting and does everything in his power to fight the primal attraction he feels for JJ. But time is running out and the killer is closing in. Will the Apostle claim her as his next victim before Cam can make this encompassing decision and come to terms with his fate?
Brenda Huber's Shadows is a must read for those who love suspense, paranormal, and the extraordinary! It's one of those books that keep you up at night, grasping every bit of the story and you're satisfied and disappointed at the end. Satisfied, because of how good it is, and disappointed because it had to end. But, all good things come to an end.
The story starts off with a chilling memory of the heroine, JJ. She's in a new town, just about the time grisly murders begin, which prompts suspicion from the Sheriff and hero, Cam. As strange things continue happening and more murders are committed, the two are thrown together and there is a secret Cam hasn't revealed to JJ yet.
