I also liked the mystery/ love theme running throughout the story. It was a lovely reminder of the holiday that my husband and I had few years ago
in Ireland. I will look forward to the next one very much.
The characters are as real as life and mystery and suspense runs through the story along with heart- warming romance, to create a compelling read. Many will relate to Lily, the central character, on her journey of discovery.
I can not wait for Marie Jones' next book!
The draw to return to Dingle is so strong that Lily sets out for Ireland once more. She begins showing around her photo and finds she opens a Pandora's box of suppressed memories.
David's sister has been missing for several years, searches have been fruitless, but when Lily shows him the photo, he can't believe his eyes. At first he thinks it is a hoax, but Lily wins him round and they begin a new search. Their digging also opens old wounds which link Lily's family to Dingle and more than one person needs to face their past before they can move forward.
This is a light easy read in a lovely setting and the paranormal thread was an interesting storyline, I wasn't quite convinced with Lily's character leaping from a shy introvert type to a strong adventurous leader and all round heroine, perhaps she just hadn't found her passion in life and Dingle was meant to be her true life path? Recommended for lovers of Irish themed romances.
Protagonist Lily can be described as a control freak. She goes through her day-to-day life with her head down, trying to avoid confrontation but never really experiencing life due to her shyness. When she returns from a short break in Dingle she's looking through her photographs and as she's flicking through them she's stunned to see a woman staring straight at her in one of them. The reason she's so shocked is that Lily is convinced that she was the only person on Inch beach that particular day.
No matter how hard Lily tries to put the image out of her head, she just can't shake the feeling that there's a reason behind why this woman chose to appear to Lily and that the mysterious woman is silently asking for her help. Lily decides that she needs to throw caution to the wind and heads back to Dingle armed with the picture of her mystery lady in search of answers.
After a few false starts Lily shows the photo to cafe owner David, whose sister disappeared five years ago. Thinking that it's an elaborate hoax, David is angry and demands answers that Lily doesn't have but she manages to convince him that she has no reason to lie to him and so the two of them set out to try and solve the mystery.
I really enjoyed reading this book and thanks to the author's wonderful descriptions of Dingle and Inch beach it's a place I want to visit. Into The Shadows is beautifully written with just the right mix of romance and mystery to enable the story to flow nicely and the little touch of supernatural kept me guessing.Read more ›
This book is a fascinating read and one which I found hugely enjoyable. I won't spoil the plot by telling you how the story unfolds, other than to say that she meets the woman's brother, David, who tells her that his sister has been missing for the past five years. It is then that their journey to find his sister begins.
The story is told through Lily's point of view and I loved her inner dialogue, that gave much needed insight into her character. We need to identify with her, and understand her needs and motives for this book to work, and the author achieves this with great skill. I really identified with Lily. In many ways I am very much like her, that need to be in control. I liked her a lot.
This is a novel of many layers. We have the beautiful and lyrical descriptions of the Dingle area, and I found myself smelling the sea air and running my hands through the sandy beaches. I also wanted to taste one of David's cappuccinos. I have never been to Ireland, but while I read this book, I was there in spirit.Read more ›
