Shadow of Regret is a sweet, clean Christian historical romance. This story was really good. I finished it in one day. The story starts with Quinn suffering a tragic loss that sets his world off kilter and basically kills his faith. It seems as if nothing will set him back on the right track until Rose comes along. She is so in love with him and is determined to help him find his way again. Faith does play an important part in this book, but it's done in a way that doesn't feel like it is shoved down your throat.
This was a short, but very good story. I kept making the dogs walk farther, so that I could listen longer (no dogs were harmed in the making of this review). I was totally invested in the story and the characters. The tension that built between the two was sweet and sometimes funny. The narration by Tom Jordan was awesome. This was my first audio book narrated by him. In my opinion, he ranks right up there with Sebastian York. A good time all the way around!

The Shadow series is set in post-Civil War Abilene, Kansas, after the cattle drives have been banned from turning the town into a 3-ring and dangerous circus. Now settlers are moving in with families, bringing civilization and religion. Two of these families and their friends are initially highlighted, the daughters of one family, the sons of the other, as the girls reach young-womanhood and the boys become men. The daily struggles of pumping water for drinking, cooking and cleaning; hitching horses to wagons or currying, saddling, riding them; appropriate attire and behavior--all these details are attended to scrupulously as interesting backgrounds and plots emerge.
I have had the privilege to read/hear [AUDIO] each of these well-narrated stories in order and certainly each enhances the depth of the next, but if one picks up any of them the tale will remain rich and rewarding with strong, faith-based values imparted as the foibles of mankind cripple or aid the courtship which is the point but not always the focus of each.
Book 3 gives us a glimpse of the seamier side of life in the wild west and doesn't shrink from the realities of how far a man or woman can fall before seeking redemption. But the key IS the redemption, with a plot worthy of a Lone Ranger episode and characters whom you care about.
