By day, nineteen-year-old Maggie Lane is property manager of Pearl Estates, a posh housing community owned by her father and occupied by Shadows. By night, she’s a waitress at a local dive. When a girl at her night job disappears, she dives into Scooby mode. She might be able to handle a missing waitress on her own, but when a new Shadow moves in next door and turns her into a blushing, flirting, love-crazed girl, her need for answers unearths nightmares from her past and monsters of the here and now. It’s possible her bad attitude might not be enough to carry her through.
New Adult paranormal romance Shadow Town is the first novel in the Maggie Lane Chronicles.
Maggie Lane is a manager for an upmarket community, Her father who is an abusive prick owns the community and that is the only connection to him that she wants, but she has a problem, Maggie sees dark shadows surrounding certain people and slowly the amount of families in her community are packing up and moving and the shadows are moving in.
Robyn Jones is an automatic author for me, what ever she churn out of her amazing mind, I will be fan girling all over it, although different to her series Touched Girl which you can find my review to here, Shadow Town is a wonderful, Mystery, Romantic and entertaining read, I could not put it down.
I loved the Characters in shadow Town, Maggie had a rough upbringing and is struggling to manage her father’s property, a part time job as a waitress and a part time playmate for a special needs child. Everyone that meets Maggie is instantly drawn to her, In good ways and bad.
I also loved all the male characters in this story (there are a few) My favourites being Michael and her best friend Branden, neither whom are romantically involved with Maggie but both have unique and fun characteristics, Michael being a bit of a jerky brat but loyal and Brandon being the fun Gay best friend that will do anything for her. I would be lying if I didn’t imagine this going in a ménage type romance, lol.
Damon is Maggies new next door neighbour who although is a shadow he manages to ignite feelings in Maggie that she is not used to including turning her into a girly mess when he is around.
The plot of Shadow town has lots of great twists and turns, and a surprising ending. I highly recommend this book to anyone Robyn Jones is on my must read list and she should be added to yours too.
