In this fast-paced follow-up to Wendy L. Young’s debut novel, Come the Shadows, the mystery deepens…
Will and Laura Harmon are trying to get on with their lives but are left reeling when a vicious hit-and-run sends Laura to the hospital. With all the recent changes in Campbell Creek Will has a long list of suspects – and few leads.
One thing is clear: Someone wants Laura dead and Will has to stop them in time.
But who from Campbell Creek’s shadowy past is behind the threats on Laura’s life and can Will figure out the mystery before tragedy strikes again?
I recently read Red Sky Warning by Wendy Young. She was nice enough to send me an ARC (e-copy) after I read the first installment, Come the Shadows. The first installment was AMAZING! The second, EVEN BETTER!
***May contain spoilers if you haven’t read the first book in the series.***
Red Sky Warning begins with Laura Harmon as mayor and her husband, Will, as Sheriff. Laura is in a hit and run right at the beginning and from then on out the threats against her escalate. Why is she being threatened? Well, in Come the Shadows, Laura held a tirade against Mitchell Devon and the new “improvements” that came to Campbell Creek. Laura is a small town girl who believed her town should stay the way it is, and when Mitchell Devon and his cronies start buying houses of her friends and loved ones, she has to put a stop to what happened. After all of that and the many twists and turns that came with Come the Shadows, Laura is elected mayor. And knowing what Laura knows about the operation Mitchell Devon was running, there are people who want to see her dead.
Red Sky Warning is a search to find out who is behind the threats against Laura, and if you think you know who is threatening her, think again! There are more twists and turns along the road as we’re told more about Mitchell Devon and his associates and what’s really gone on since the developments to Campbell Creek came along.
The marriage between Will and Laura never wavers throughout all of the threats against Laura, and as I mentioned in the interview with the author, I love their relationship! They have a strong bond, and it is so refreshing to see that kind of marriage in a book.
If you’ve read Come the Shadows but not Red Sky Warning, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. This book had me begging for more! From the very beginning, the book is filled with suspense. With each page, you beg for more! More of Laura and Will, Ricky and Amanda, and most importantly, more of what is ACTUALLY going on in Campbell Creek!
Five out of five stars! A fantastic read you don’t want to miss!
