Two former runaways, now adults, a former cop whose wife and kids died from a car bomb, two former cult members and a jealous teen boy all add up to an interesting mystery with a bit of romance thrown in. Shadows on the Sand: A Seaside Mystery by Gayle Roper is the 5th of The Seaside Seasons books. Roper’s book is an enjoyable, well written mystery. While some of it is fairly predictable, I enjoyed getting to know the characters of this small town. Even though it is part of a series, I didn’t have any problems reading it without the other books before it. This is a great book to take with you on that last trip to the beach or curl up in a comfy chair for a few hours of reading.
I received this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah for the purpose of this review.
