Where Shadows Dwell
by Julianne Kelsch
For Lily Frost, love is a double edged sword. She craves it, she needs it, but the asking price for love may be her life.
After her mother’s apparent suicide, Lily is forced to face the hard reality that she no longer has a family, and when a friend shares with her his concerns that her mother’s death may have been murder, she leaves California, determined to find the father that abandoned her when she was a child. Instead, she finds James Prescott, a man she realizes can give her what she’s looking for.
James is tormented by his mother’s unsolved murder. More than anything, he wants to see her killer lifeless, lying in a shallow grave. When Lily enters his life he realizes that he hasn’t been living. Lily shines for him, a light that finally pierces the darkness. For the first time in years, he feels hope. Their relationship blossoms and Lily discovers that she is worthy of love.
But then without warning, everything implodes. Investigators learn that Lily’s Father murdered James’ mother. To make matters worse, her old boyfriend returns and nearly kills Lily in a drunken rage. She survives, but his attack becomes the catalyst that throws the lovers into a battle for their lives.
Can James let go of his dark shadows or will his lust for revenge consume him? Can Lily give her life to a man that is determined to see her father dead? Will their love survive or will the past destroy their future?
Praise for Kelsch
“I couldn’t put this book down. I loved the range of emotions spanned and had to hang on for dear life to follow the brilliant and sudden and frequent transitions between them. And whenever I thought I was ahead of the book and had it all figured out, it would take another turn that I couldn’t possibly have seen coming. A great read!”
“Incredible. I was on the edge of my seat the whole book. Intense. Love filled and forgiveness given. A beautifully written book.”
“I loved that it kept me guessing and wanting to never stop reading! I really liked the way it ended and I would love to read the second book if it were ever written!”
