Chasing Shadows (South Shores, #1) by Karen Harper

The dead still talk if you know how to listen… 

Every case that Claire Britten cracks is a win, not only professionally but personally. The forensic psychologist has spent a lifetime fighting a neurological disorder, and her ability to conquer it is a testament to her razor-sharp intuition.

Nick Markwood is used to winning in the courtroom, so when his latest case is overthrown by Claire's expert testimony, he can't help being impressed by her skill. He needs her on the team of his passion project—investigating unusual cases involving mysterious deaths. Her condition doesn't deter him, and neither does the attraction that sparks between them…even if it should.

As they join forces to investigate a murder in St. Augustine, Florida, Claire is thrust into a situation far more dangerous than she'd anticipated, pushing her disorder to a breaking point. Just when she fears she can't trust her own mind, she discovers Nick's personal connection to the case—and wonders whether she can trust anyone at all.


About The Author 

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Karen Harper is a former college English instructor (The Ohio State University) and high school literature and writing teacher. A lifelong Ohioan, Karen and her husband Don divide their time between the midwest and the southeast, both locations she has used in her books. Besides her American settings, Karen loves the British Isles, where her Scottish and English roots run deep, and where she has set many of her historical Tudor-era mysteries and her historical novels about real and dynamic British women. Karen's books have been published in many foreign languages and she won the Mary Higgins Clark Award for 2005. Karen has given numerous talks to readers and writers across the county.

If you enjoy a story with non-stop action, this is surely the book for you, there is constantly something happening and you will never know who is the next victim.
Claire Britten has started her own forensic psychologist agency, and after winning a case, and riding a high, she is offered a job she cannot refuse. She doesn’t like leaving her precocious preschool daughter, but the money is very good and it will help her career, what she doesn’t expect is a bit of romance.
This story is going to keep you guess, and once you make up your mind, you are probably wrong. Will Claire be able to help Nick and be able to prove his client innocent, or will she be the catalyst to proving her guilty?
A book that constantly had me on my toes, and had my heart in my throat, and the action happens right up to the last page, and yes there is another book to come, but not fast enough.
I received this book through Net Galley and Harlequin Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.
