Shadows of Pain by Ashley Dawn

From the back cover:

Revenge is sweet … unless you are on the receiving end of it.
Do you know of anyone who would want … you dead?”
Officer Daniel Jenkins was no stranger to the dangers his job posed but usually he knew who was trying to kill him. Being stalked was a completely different ball game, and he wasn't sure there were any rules …
... I need you.”
Terrified he didn't even begin to describe how Kami felt with the stalker targeting her. As an FBI agent you were trained to handle stressful situations, but being the victim put the whole process in a different light.
As the killer gets closer, so do Kami and Daniel, but will they live long enough to see their love bloom?
Only God can save them from this unknown killer …

My review:

This is a good character driven novel that concentrates more on relationships than it does action and suspense. The characters are an interesting mix of law enforcement officials, from FBI to local police. They work well together and have become like family to each other. There is some good dialogue as characters tease each other. I like that the Christianity of the characters is important. It is portrayed well and is an important part of a potential romance.

This is the third in a series and readers may be a little lost at the beginning if they have not read the previous books. The characters burst upon the scene at the beginning and there is not much back story to catch up.

I recommend this novel to readers who like to get involved in characters' lives. You'll find long passages of character introspection and thought. You will get some suspense too, especially near the end.

You can read my reviews of the previous books in the series: Shadows From the Past, Shadows of Suspicion

My rating: 4/5 stars.
