About the Book

When returning to her past threatens her life and a murder occurs…

When Mia Blackburn returns to Shadow Lake to inherit her uncle’s property, she doesn’t expect a threatening warning before she even reaches the rustic resort. And when a fire traps her in the burning barn that very day, she fears she won’t get out alive. Just in time, Ryan Maddox, her ex-boyfriend and Shadow Lake Survival owner, rescues her from the deadly blaze. She’s thankful for his rescue, but after their tumultuous breakup, he’s the last person she wants to see.

Will she be the next victim?

Despite the threatening warning and her residual feelings for Ryan, Mia won’t let anyone scare her from the rustic resort before she fulfills the terms of her uncle’s will and inherits the property. Ryan insists on keeping a close eye on her, and soon Mia feels safer and closer to Ryan than ever before. Yet the threats haven’t stopped, and soon Mia’s inheritance includes a murder, and she could be the next victim.

Danielle’s Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.

Shadow of Deceit is book one in Susan Sleeman’s new romantic suspense series, Shadow Lake Survival.

This was an exciting second chance romance between two high school sweethearts. With the past between them, and danger around them, Mia and Ryan have a lot to work through. I was rooting for them to overcome their personal challenges, especially because they seemed so perfect for each other. And the mystery had lots of twists and turns. Without giving spoilers, I loved the climax and how the solution all came about.

If you enjoy mystery, suspense, and second chances, then give this book a read! I can’t wait for the rest of the series!
