Shadow in Serenity by Terri Blackstock*A Review

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, Texas 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 bestselling author.

  I really enjoy books written by Terri Blackstock and this one is very good. It is a book she wrote before she got into the Christian market, but loved it so much that when she could she rewrote parts of this book and had it published in the Christian market.
  I really like it because it shows us even the most unfeeling, unloving person can truly want to change and be saved. God isn’t held back. He can even make the vilest person clean and whole.
  Carny grew up in a carnavial and saw lots of people being swindled. Even though it was her life she wanted to be different and change. So the first chance she got she took it and was now content doing the Lord’s will. When Logan came into town she knew he was a swinder.
  I like how you see in the hearts of Carny and Logan, both knew evil and both just wanted love and a chance to change and prove themselves.
 I like Terri’s rich characters and the small town feel she puts in this book. The kind, caring, simple town full of trusting, happy people. I love Carny and her sweet son. I even like Logan even though he has nothing but evil in his heart and only thinks of himself.
  This book Shadow in Serenity is full of action, family, friends, sneakiness, love, forgiveness and peace.
 Will Logan change, can he? Will Carny ever believe him? Will the town lose everything? Read this book to find out.
 I recommend this book as a very enjoyable read that will be very entertaining.
