Publisher's Summary

Carny Sullivan grew up in the zany world of a traveling carnival. Quaint and peaceful Serenity, Texas, has given her a home, a life, and a child. Logan Brisco is the smoothest, slickest, handsomest man Serenity has ever seen. But Carny Sullivan knows a con artist when she sees one—and she’s seen plenty, starting with her father. As far as Carny Sullivan can tell, she’s the only one in town who has his number. Because from his Italian shoes to his movie-actor smile, Logan has the rest of the town snowed.
Carny is determined to reveal Brisco’s selfish intentions before his promise to the townspeople for a cut in a giant amusement park sucks Serenity dry. Yet as much as she hates his winning ways, there is a man behind that suave smile, a man who may win her heart against her will.
Shadow in Serenity is a modern-day Music Man, penned by a Christy Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author.

Wasn't expecting much.

I listened to this nonstop for a day. I found myself rooting for the assumed villain. Loved the grace shown in this book.

A nice revamping ...

What made the experience of listening to Shadow in Serenity the most enjoyable?

I loved the lead character; as always, this author's characters and dialogue are wonderful and believable. I knew pretty much where the plot was headed, but it was a great ride.


What other book might you compare Shadow in Serenity to and why?

Well, it's a stand-alone. It's actually a rewrite of an earlier novel, before the author stopped writing secular novels. It reminds me of a modern day Music Man; the charming crook who comes to town and tries to con all of Carny's family. Great fun listen, without being too sweetie-sweetie.


Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to count.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I had listened to this narrator in Truth Stained Lies, and was so surprised when she comes on with this fun, country accent. I was so surprised! She was so good at both books, I don't know if the real narrator is Southern, or not.


Any additional comments?

I don't care for books where the characters keep talking to God and he answers. Terri manages to maintain the spirituality of the characters without losing a good plot and romance. Love the narrator. I think she's a perfect match for Terri's work.
