Review: Sinister Shadows (Wicks Hollow #3) by Colleen Gleason
An uptight lawyer.
A carefree palm-reader.
A haunted antiques shop.
And a very mortal villain...
Welcome to Wicks Hollow: a cozy town near Lake Michigan filled with quaint houses, eccentric residents, and more than its share of ghosts, murders, and sexy romance.
When Fiona Murphy inherits a small antiques shop from an old man she met only once, she’s filled with surprise, confusion and delight—and a little bit of terror at having a new responsibility in a life she prefers to be free and easy.
As she takes over ownership of the quaint shop, odd things begin to happen. Lights come on and off by themselves, even when they are unplugged…and there is a chilly breeze accompanied by the scent of roses even when the windows are closed.
H. Gideon Nath, III, is the stuffy and oh-so-proper attorney who helps settle Fiona’s inheritance, and against his better judgment, he finds himself attracted to her, despite her fascination with all things New Age.
After she finds an unpleasant surprise in one of the shop’s closets, scares off an intruder in the store, and uses her skill at palmistry to read Gideon’s future—of which she seems to be a part—Fiona begins to realize that her free and easy life is about to change…whether she wants it to or not.
A ghost story romance set in a small town, featuring a cozy mystery about a ghost that just won’t rest until justice is served. The perfect blend of romance, suspense, and ghosts.
Sinister Shadows was a great read. Fiona and Gideon were so much fun together. Add in some spooky ghosts and a mystery to solve and I really enjoyed this one.
Fiona was so much fun to read. She is a free spirit and is trying to make the best of her sudden inheritance from someone she didn't even know. She is all about the new age stuff and was a sweetheart.
Gideon is a buttoned-up, straight-laced guy who doesn't really believe in all that mumbo jumbo, but even though Fiona is his exact opposite he can't seem to stop thinking about her. Or stay away from her. There is just something about her that draws him in and I loved that. I loved watching him relax a bit and take things a little easier. They were super fun together.
Then the spooky story that Fiona inherited was interesting. I enjoyed trying to figure out what was going on and why. Overall this was a great read and now I want to read more about Wicks Hollow.
