  • Terri Blackstock is a bit of a hit or miss author for me I really enjoyed her standalone romance novel, Emerald Windows, and her romantic suspense series, Sun Coast Chronicles and Cape Refuge, but I loathed Last Light, the first in her futuristic Restoration series, so much that I didn t read the sequels I felt Last Light was marred by a TSTL too stupid to live heroine who gave new meaning to the term shallow So what about Shadow in Serenity Con man Logan Brisco breezes into Serenity, Texas, wit [...]


  • Review on review R22EOTBLReview on my blog christianbookshelfreviews4.5 starsShadow in Serenity was way better than I expected I really liked how the story dealt with con artists and scamming people very unique from most books I ve read I loved how Carny instantly saw through Logan and realized he was a con man I also loved how redemption and forgiveness were major parts of Shadow in Serenity.Overall, Shadow in Serenity was a great read that I enjoyed very much Unlike most Terri Blackstock nove [...]


  • This book was ok, It was a very easy book to read The heroine was a bit of a know it all, if you don t listen to me your stupid type person which was a bit of a turn off for me but other than her there was some very good characters in this story It was your typical con man falls in love and decides to turn good and makes the con real story which is why I went with 2 stars rather than 3, just a bit to predictable for me.


  • I really liked the story and loved how it ended it was Noble and a great story of how people can change I loved it onto the next book


  • A pigeon dropper What s a pigeon dropper A huckster A shyster A con man Y all are making a terrible mistake Yet no matter how many times she tried to warn them, not only her own in laws and citizens of Serenity, no one wanted to listen.Situated in Texas, Serenity was a quaint and peaceful town that some would compare to Mayberry from the old Andy Griffith show One that was also beginning to feel the effects of the latest downturn in the economy These are where hard working, God fearing people st [...]


  • Let me start by saying I love, love, love Terri Blackstock I will practically read anything the woman puts down on paper I love her story ideas, research and writing style Her books are Christian based, but she doesn t preach at you She s taken on some personal issues in the Intervention series and wrote them beautifully, making the reader really see the other side of the fence.In saying all that, Shadow in Serenity is a different animal altogether The title alone kept me back It just had a hint [...]


  • I have been a diehard fan of Terri Blackstock since I first started reading Christian fiction over ten years ago I have always been able to rely on Terri to provide suspenseful stories that keep me awake until the wee hours of the morning However, this was not one of her stronger novels.While the carnival amusement park idea was unique, I felt that I had to suspend belief for a large portion of the story Like Carny, I wondered how in the world all of Logan s plans would come to fruition if he wa [...]


  • I have to admit I wasn t as taken with Shadow in Serenity as I honestly thought I would be While portions of this novel drew my attention and had some great insight into the human condition, the novel itself, entire story arc and how it was put together, failed to truly move me I knew full and well going into the story it wouldn t be the typical suspense murder mystery and I was perfectly fine with that Where I ran into some snags was how the story came together Much of the dialogue felt weak in [...]


  • SHADOW IN SERENITY was a unique book that I quickly found myself engulfed in.Carny Sullivan grew up the child of traveling carnival con artists She can spot a con from a mile away And because of that, the minute Logan Brisco blows into town she knows he s a con just waiting to happen She calls him on it publicly, but he quickly diffuses her claims Carny is determined to expose Logan before he fleeces the town of Serenity of everything they have.As Carny watches Logan s every move and does her be [...]


  • Carny Sullivan has in common with Logan Brisco than she cares to admit Carny has been raised around carnivals and con men and can spot a hawker a mile away When Logan Brisco bursts onto the scene in the peaceful little town of Serenity, Texas, Carny smells a rat She s determined to expose his underhanded schemes and refuses to be swayed by his charm She doesn t want to see the honest, hard working people she loves scammed out of their money and goes on an all out assault to expose Logan s plans [...]


  • Carny grew up traveling with the circus She learned at an early age to con people out of their money But she grows tired of the games and running and decides to plant roots in a town named Serenity.Logan comes to town spinning dreams and charming Serenity s citizens But Carny can spot a con a mile away and isn t letting him steal from her town.Change is hard Both Logan and Carny find out that God can help and no matter what the fault He will forgive and make new It was a new look at how God can [...]


  • This book took longer to read than it should have because I had difficulty getting into it I almost returned it to the library unfinished but decided to stick it out I was expecting another of Ms Blackstock s suspense books and it was not just a basic boy meets girl with a bit of a twist Logan is a con artist who has come to Serenity with the intention of fleecing the citizens out of their money by promising an amusement park and then skipping town with all the cash Carny knows a con when she se [...]



  • Interesting and different book, but the ending didn t make sense How does a con artist come clean and manage to get away with every scam he s committed before coming to Serenity



  • Good read I have enjoyed Blackstocks books This one was a good read Although you can kind of guess the ending, it was still a fun read.



  • First posted on my blog, Legacy of a Writer.This is my first step into Terri Blackstock s work and, while it wasn t as edge of your seat suspenseful that I was expecting, it was an engaging story that kept me reading I thought it was neat that Terri rewrote Shadow in Serenity original published for the general market with a Christian message woven in And she did it so seamlessly even when I read, at the end, how she d added the Christian elements, I almost found it hard to imagine the book witho [...]


  • Shadow in Serenity by Terri Blackstock is a faith based novel set in Serenity, Texas This was a heart warming novel about faith, love, second chances and the spirit of one small town I enjoyed the characters Blackstock created in this novel and the wonderful tale she tells.Carney Sullivan is tough as nails, a good mother and loves the people of Serenity as if they were family Raised by con artist in a traveling carnival she knows a con when she sees one When Logan Brisco show up promising to mak [...]


  • Shadow in Serenity is the type of story that sticks with you after you finish the book Not only is it well written, but it made me cry a few times There were some precious, yet heart wrenching scenes in this story that rang so true I forgot several times that I was reading fiction The people in the story seemed real to me I loved the characters arcs as well The theme about childhood always being with you and shaping who you are but that didn t mean you couldn t change was very inspirational and [...]


  • I ve only read a couple of Terri Blackstock s books before reading Shadow in Serenity and found this one to be a little different from what I have gotten used to with her books I will admit that it took some time for me to get into this book When I first started reading it, I wondered how on earth this story was going to fill over three hundred pages Frankly, it didn t sound like much of a story, but that was one of the biggest reasons I wanted to read it I have read many books that could fit in [...]


  • 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 to [...]


  • 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 bein [...]


  • This was a fun read Terry Blackstock is not an author I m familiar with, but I did enjoy the story This is a novel with enough punch to keep you entertained and enough depth to keep you thinking Carny Sullivan is a woman who is going out of her way to prove that the newest guy in town is a con man That she knows what they look like all too well is understood, but the town is not as interested in her suspicions as they are in the pipe dreams one Logan Brisco is selling.Carny herself has been tran [...]


  • I was reading Terri Blackstock s book Showow in Serenity This was my fun read this week Set in small town Texas gosh just like where I live , Carny has settled down Leaving her past well the past Or so she hopes Knowing that she must guard her previous life from others thus not to be judge she finds that she is pretty aware of what is going on around her most of the time And those old bells and whistles are clanging when she meets up with Logan Yes he seems to be cut from the same cloth she use [...]

  • Carny Sullivan has seen plenty of cons, having been raised by parents who were carnival people and taught her all the tricks When Logan Brisco blows into her small, close knit town she knows his promises to the locals of making money in his investment opportunity are nothing but a scam Carny does everything she can to convince her town that he s a con and refuses to tear down her personal walls of defense But just when she believes she s got Brisco all figured out, he surprises her The book syno [...]


  • I enjoyed this story, the writing flowed well and kept my interest I read this book in one day while doing many other things Every time I put it down I looked forward to picking it back up It reminded me a bit of the musical, One Hundred Degrees in the Shade A con comes to town looking to make a score and instead finds then he bargained for The characters were varied, especially the carnival group A town like Serenity sounds very much like Mayberry and I think that I would love to live in a pla [...]
