About the Book

Shadows of Deception

Book: Shadows of Deception

Author: Ashley Dawn

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: May 1, 2018

“Get to work cowboy or you’ll be too late to the table to get any pie.”

A short getaway to a nice Texas ranch isn’t why Tiffany is at Colorado’s home. She is a seasoned LA PI and used to the fast paced life. The problems on the ranch are different from what she is used to but she is determined to solve them one way or another. There is one slight problem—a tall dark and handsome cowboy distracting her and occupying more and more of her thoughts.

“…I would hate for anything to happen to remove you from my favor…or organization.”

Danger on the ranch is real and escalating quickly. Colorado doesn’t know who to trust or what is coming next. The thing he does know is Tiffany Reiley is the woman he wants for the job.

Thinking the case will be quick and easy to solve, Tiffany doesn’t anticipate the depth of the horrors she has stepped into.

As Colorado and Tiffany’s attraction grows, the danger gets closer. Will God guide them to the answers they are so desperately searching for?

Guest Post from Ashley

Shadows of Deception was a fun book to write.

I love writing my Shadows books because the characters have become so ‘real’ for me. The Reiley family is a large, close family. Each of the siblings is their own person with their own life, but they will always be there for each other.

Deception focuses on Tiffany Reiley. Tiffany loves her family completely, but in such a big family, feels like she has to prove herself. She isn’t looking for a man, and certainly not a man like Colorado. Her story honestly didn’t unfold as I had planned, I wrote it one way but it felt forced and like I was making my characters do things that didn’t fit their personalities. Letting the story just ‘flow’ and the characters be themselves was scary and thrilling at the same time.

There is a touch of difficult subject matter, but for me the story is more about how God is in our lives no matter what. God is always there and His love for us, even when we don’t feel loveable or deserving is ours for the taking. When we don’t understand why things are happening, He does. My hope is no matter what someone gets from the book, they see God’s love through it.

From the moment I opened this book and began reading the story had me captivated.  This fourth installment of The Shadows Series is definitely a book not to be missed. Ashley Dawn has done a remarkable job of creating a storyline that is believable and spell-binding.  I found myself having difficulty with putting the book down.

Tiffany Reiley provides a strong, dedicated and hardworking private investigator.  While Colorado Wiley epitomizes everything about being a cowboy and rancher.  Tiffany’s cousin, Curtis Coulter, who shows up as a new cowboy for Colorado’s ranch adds quite a plot twist and protective family factor to the story.

I found myself deeply moved by the lengths Tiffany’s brothers and family members were willing to go to ensure her safety.  When a fire breaks out at the barn and Tiffany’s first thought is for the cat and kittens and other animals in the barn, I found myself drawn even more into the story.

With danger, loving family relationships and ties, down-to-earth characters, realistic settings, animals and more, this suspense novel will keep you on your toes and wanting to read more.  I also loved the integral part Christian faith played in the story.

Of this series, I have only read one other book, Shadows from the Past, but I have put the other two books, Shadows of Suspicion and Shadows of Pain on my list of books to read.  But I strongly recommend you check out this book for yourself along with the other books in the series.
