Review: Shadows of the Past by:Patricia Bradley

Shadows of the Past: A Novel (Logan Point)
About the Book:
Psychology professor and criminal profiler Taylor Martin prides herself on being able to solve any crime, except the one she wants most desperately to solve--the disappearance of her father twenty years ago. When she finally has a lead on his whereabouts, Taylor returns home to Logan Point, Mississippi, to investigate. But as she is stalking the truth about the past, someone is stalking her.

Nick Sinclair pens mystery novels for a living, but the biggest mystery to him is how he can ever get over the death of his wife--a tragedy he believes he could have prevented.

My Review:

But it seems the closer and closer she gets to find out what made him disappear, she is knocked farther and father from the truth. Though she has the ability to find him, she maybe in more trouble than she knows. Her job involves solving different crimes, why can't she solve this one? What's the difference?

How Taylor came to find him is unknown, but what he does know is she brought trouble along with her. But who knows maybe she'll be able to help solve his mystery too.
