"Shadow Stalker" by Barbara Ann Derksen gets 5 stars from me.
This book is about Christine Finder, alias Melissa Rompart, who dreams about her parents brutal murder every night. This murder happens when she is just a young child. At the start of the story Christine ( now an adult) returns to her old hometown with an adopted name (she was adopted after the murder) and sets up a business as a PI to find missing children along with her dog Chief.
The first case has her partnering with her lawyer's son Jeremy Goodman who is also a PI and there cases are interwoven.
While trying to found the 4 year old boy who was kidnapped, Christine is also trying to found her parent's killer but he is still trying to kill her.
This is the first book in the "Finders Keepers Mystery Series" and the ending will leave you wanting to read the next story in this series. This stories leaves you asking questions such as what was in the box left on the porch? And will Jeriamiah and Fanny get together as well as Jeremy and Christine and will Christine's parents killer ever be caught
If you like mystery you will like this book! This is a story that readers who like and readers who don't like religion in their stories will like even through Jeremy and his father are Christians and let you know it they don't shove it at you ( and yes I am a Christian and I added this sentence because I am thinking of friends who likes mysteries and would like this book but doesn't like to read Christian Fiction).
I would be reading more of Barbara's books in the future.
