Publisher's Summary

Isabel’s life seemed perfect. Successful business, beautiful house, adoring husband. And then she was dead.

For four years Jessica has never doubted that her sister Isabel’s death was an accident. But when Jessica’s young daughter seems to know long-forgotten details about her aunt’s past, Jessica can’t shake the feeling that there’s a more sinister truth behind the tragedy.

As Jessica unearths disturbing revelations about her sister, and about the people she loved and trusted most, it becomes clear Isabel’s life was less than perfect and that Jessica’s might also be at risk.

Did someone murder Isabel? Are they now after Jessica and her family? The key seems to lie in the hands of a child. Can Isabel reveal the truth from beyond the grave, or is the answer closer to home?

In Her Shadow is a gripping tale of family secrets, lies and obsession from the two million copy bestselling author Mark Edwards.

A "miss" by a good author

I'm a huge fan of Mark Edwards, but this is a miss for me. His work has started to become a bit formulaic. Here's how they go (warning, semi-spoilers): Seemingly paranormal things are happening, ten red herring characters are introduced while crazy things go on, then one by one they are eliminated until the very end, where there's one character that is responsible for some of the crazy things but not all of them and another character is actually the main criminal. Then everything wraps up with a little zinger of that original paranormal stuff- a little "what if". Mostly, I don't mind this formula, but this one was predictable and the story was not very interesting. Side note: the four year old girl Olivia in this book was so spoiled and annoying, it was hard to sit through. If that were my daughter, she would have told me her "secrets" the first time they came up. I think most parents would react that way. I look forward to Edwards' next book. This was just very underwhelming.

Not really a page-turner

This is not my favorite book by Mark Edwards. Admittedly, I'm not a fan of tales with a supernatural element, and I never became very involved in the storyline. In addition, the characters here seemed to be closer to one-dimensional caricatures than to nuanced human beings. Before the story ended, I stopped caring who had done it.

Very good! Stick with it!

I had a bit of trouble in the beginning, but I am so glad I hung in there! I really like books that toggle between time periods, where the voices are pitch perfect, add some supernatural element and I'm hooked!! Very good job to both the author and the narrator!!!

so...so

So many times I exclaimed aloud, "Stupid, stupid! " to the main character. Every other chapter she would blame another person for her sister's death, each time putting herself in possibly harms way, while excessively worrying about her reputation. it was frustrating to follow along side of the main character whilybn oi uh 6 on nnn b vm. ?
