About the Book

To protect her loved ones…

Rookie officer Sydney Tucker can handle threats to her life. After all, she’s a law enforcement officer. Even when a killer demands she turn over evidence from a drug bust or he will kill her, she refuses to comply. But things change when he threatens the life of her teenage sister, and Sydney might consider turning over the evidence. If she had what he was looking for.

Will she pay the ultimate price—her life?

But even when Sydney tells the killer that she doesn’t possess the evidence, he doesn’t believe her, and his threats continue. Emerson County Sheriff Russ Maddox steps in, putting Sydney and her sibling under his watchful eye. But will his protection be enough? The killer is closing in, picking off the people and places that mean the most to Sydney. A list that now not only includes her but Russ as well.

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 Night by Susan Sleeman is the second book in her Shadow Lake Survival series.

I’ve been looking forward to Russ’s story. Seeing him in the past couple books, I knew he had a history and I’ve been curious to read more about him. And what a tragic history he has! I love that someone can finally break through his walls.

I also love the comradery of Russ and his brothers/team. It’s one of the aspects that I enjoy most about Susan Sleeman’s books. And the way Russ brought in the female main character, cop to cop, was amazing. And her being a female rookie cop added so much to the story.

If you enjoy romantic suspense, give this one a read!
