Book Review: Shadow in Serenity

Shadow in Serenity is a beautiful story of forgiveness and redemption—and of learning to trust God’s power to forgive and redeem. This story touched my heart.

Carny Sullivan is a single mom, a widow, raising her son in the safe, small town she fell in love with when she fell in love with her husband. Having grown up in a carnival environment with two con artists for parents, Carny treasures stability, security, and honesty.

When Logan Briscoe comes to town offering a deal too good to be true, Carny knows right away it’s a scam. But, in the town’s desperation for economic improvement, no one will believe her. Carny must find a way to prove that Logan is a fraud before he forever disappears with the life savings of all her friends.

At the end of the book, author Terri Blackstock shares the story of how God led her from writing for the secular romance market to writing Christian novels. Shadow in Serenity was originally published under a different title for the secular world. Blackstock has reworked it—and redeemed it, so to speak—giving a beautiful, and true, message to a great story.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. I’m happy to recommend it to you.
