Andrea4 Stars Out Of 5Entertaining Suspense NovelMarch 6, 2017AndreaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was an entertaining suspense novel. I was pretty torn throughout most of the book on who the bad guy was. The main bad guy was pretty surprising to me, but not so much some of the accomplices. A few questions are still out there for me, but the overall story had good closure and kept me on my toes (which is just what I'm looking for with this genre).
Laney's job situation reminded me somewhat of the movie "The Net" with Sandra Bullock. Not to get all conspiracy theory, but it did make me think how it's important beyond our mental health and happiness to have social connections in life.
As a somewhat silly side note, something about this cover reminds me of Hermione Granger from Harry Potter. I'm not really sure what it is (I looked up the DVD covers and didn't see a similarity there), but every time I look at it now I think of Harry Potter.

You cant help but be sympathetic toward the challenged main character, Laney Ryan, who ends up in the midst of a crime spree involving kidnapping, murder, espionage, and hacking into government computers. The officer assigned to guard her cant decide if shes an innocent victim or adept at deceit and manipulation. Will Detective Mark James ever trust her or continue to suspect her involvement in criminal activities? Could she be framed? And what happened to her teen neighbor girl? Can they save her too?

Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Shadow of SuspicionFebruary 2, 2017Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, SHADOW OF SUSPICION is Ms. Barritt's newest romantic suspense. I admit I am not as technically savvy as most people, but wow, if what she wrote about being able to do by hacking computers is possible, it is scary, scary, scary.
I didn't really feel the romance part of this story. Laney is to bent on hacking computer systems and Mark is too suspicious. I did figure out who likely was behind the girl's disappearance but how the rest of the suspense tied together evaded me, leaving me guessing.
Ms. Barritt is a master at romantic suspense and mystery and this book, like all of hers, is a page-turner. I had to keep reading to see how it would all play out. There is no faith message in this book, making it more of a clean read.
If you like romantic suspense, you will enjoy SHADOW OF SUSPICION.
Doreen5 Stars Out Of 5FramedJanuary 30, 2017DoreenQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Laney's home is suddenly invaded by a SWAT team and she is arrested for kidnapping her next door neighbor's teenage daughter, who Laney has befriended. Every time Laney tries to defend herself or to prove her innocence, more evidence is uncovered to make her look even more guilty. Only one person, Detective Mark James, even WANTS to believe Laney is innocent. But as he tries to get to the truth and fights his attraction to her, more and more twists are thrown at him until he doesn't know which side is up. Everything Laney believes to be true seems to be false. Why doesn't her boss answer the phone? Where is Sarah? Why does Sarah's father believe Laney is guilty without hearing her out? Why does Sarah's phone show a text from Laney that Laney didn't send? Who is trying to set her up? Every time I thought I had figured something out, another surprise came out of nowhere! Great mystery, great characters, surprise twist at the end. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
