Federal Agent Jack McCann hopes to wrap up his latest, and hopefully
last, undercover assignment soon so he can return home to his wife,
Shelly. His current assignment has been going on for months and
involves a major weapon smuggling operation. Unfortunately, the bust
doesn't go as planned and now Jack must pretend to be dead in order
to keep Shelly safe from harm. Can Jack find a way home again?
Oh, Jack! I don't want to reveal any spoilers, but Sharon Sala may just
have created the most lovable man yet out of all her heroes! In fact, I
think I fell just a little in love with Jack and Shelly as a couple too. Their
love shines through the pages as each is willing to sacrifice everything
for their beloved other half. I laughed I cried, and I cheered right along
with Jack and Shelly.
IN SHADOWS is a tough read in
some places, as the hardships Jack and Shelly endure are nothing
short of torturous. One scene in particular still sends shivers down my
spine just thinking about it! Sharon Sala isn't one to shirk away from
real life issues and she shows this once again with IN SHADOWS. I particularly like how she addresses
the mental health impacts of PTSD.
IN SHADOWS is yet another
stunningly good read from Sharon Sala. Sharon Sala masterfully crafts
a tale that you just can't put down, even when your heart is breaking
right along with the characters. If you love emotional reads that pull at
your heartstrings, then IN
SHADOWS is a must read for you.
To protect her, he must remain a
Jack McCann has been in love with Shelly since they were
teens. They married just out of college and right before he
went to work as an undercover agent for the FBI. When he
can, he slips away from his assignments to see her—just like
tonight, when he sneaks into his own home to hold Shelly in
his arms and assure her that his cover is still secure.
Jack has already been undercover for months investigating an
import/export business long-suspected of smuggling weapons
out of the States, but just as the FBI is set to make the
bust, Jack’s cover is blown. The last thing he feels as he
crashes through a warehouse window and into the open water
is a bullet piercing his back. The last thing he hears is
Adam Wu promising to destroy everyone Jack loves.
Shelley’s worst nightmares come true when the FBI arrive at
her doorstep to bring her the news. But she doesn’t know the
truth: Jack survived the shooting, and will do anything to
keep his beloved wife safe—even if it means hiding in shadows…
