Book Review: Gathering Shadows by Nancy Mehl

Gathering Shadows

The Synopsis:

Wynter Evans is a promising young reporter for a television station in St. Louis, but even a bright future doesn’t take away her pain over the disappearance of her brother nine years ago. So when she stumbles across a photograph of a boy with an eerie resemblance to him, she can’t pass up the chance to track him down. With research for work as her cover, she sets out with one of the station’s photogs for the place where the picture was taken: the town of Sanctuary.
Almost as soon as she arrives, she meets the town’s handsome young mayor, Rueben King, and together they begin to uncover long held secrets that could tear the small town apart and change everything Wynter thought she knew about her life. As the truth of her family’s past hides in the shadows, it’s clear someone will stop at nothing to keep the answers she’s searching for hidden forever–even if the cost is Wynter’s very life

My Review:

This cover was very eye-catching! I really, really like the cover, that is mainly what sold the book to me. However, this book has a very slow beginning and I just cannot get into the story. I am on like chapter 6 and still trying to get involved with the characters. I know I should keep reading and really want to, but the story is just too slow for me. Now, if it was a rainy day in the middle of winter and I had a fire going, I might be more inclined to read this slower paced book, but it’s not and I’m not. However, from what I’ve read, there is nothing remotely “bad” about this book, so the only reason I am putting it on hold is stated above.

Thanks for reading!
