Shadows in the Curtains

Every stage actress wants fans, but what happens when one goes too far?

Emmy has the perfect life— a house on the beach, a successful career headlining the local theater, and love. But when a brutal murder brings unimaginable grief, Emmy’s world comes crashing down. As she tries to pick up the pieces, she can’t seem to avoid Josh, the new fireman in town.

Emmy does her best to fight the sizzle in her chest when Josh is near. But with the stalker still out there, terrorizing her and those she cares about, she can’t fall for anyone—especially Josh, a suspect in the murder investigation.

If Emmy allows a man to get close, it’s not just her heart she puts at risk, it’s her life.

“Cami Checketts can spin a tale like no other. Love, suspense, thrills, she has it all, and Shadows in the Curtain is no exception. What a thrill ride! I highly recommend this book. 10 stars!!” -Sherry Gammon, author of the Port Fare Series

“I’m a sucker for the exciting parts, and this book has scenes that had my eyes racing my heart to the end of each page!” -Amanda Tru, author of the Yesterday Series

My Review 

This was a thrilling romantic mystery. Cami Checketts did a great job at weaving intrigue, love and danger into this story. I’ve read a lot of Checkett’s books and this one kept me on the edge of my seat wondering who the real killer was and if love would ever be possible again after such tragedy. Good job, Cami…and keep on writing!

Jake Merrill was raised by his grandmother, Ruby, & her hilarious friends. After a suspicious death at the retirement home where Ruby lives, she enlists Jake and Chanel, the beautiful activities director, to help her find the killer. But secrets Ruby has kept for decades threaten her family and the man she’s always loved but could never have. Chanel’s unstable ex-boyfriend, a presumably dead relative, and vicious criminals add to the confusion. Time is running out as Jake, Chanel, & Ruby desperately search for clues to solve the murders and fight to save those they love.

To protect her sons from the mistakes of her past, Brinlee Trapper escapes to a secluded mountain home. But there are dangers lurking in the mountains she has never encountered. The little family is saved from injury by Jed, a mysterious hunter. Brinlee is drawn to him, but worries about his involvement with a peaceful commune hidden deep in the mountains behind her property. Lance, Brinlee’s attentive neighbor, has his own troubled history. Between his obvious attraction to Brinlee and his developing love for her children, Brinlee finds it difficult to guard her heart against this tender intrusion. While Jed offers a life of excitement and freedom, Lance holds the key to the family Brinlee always wanted. When it comes time to choose, she learns that both men have secrets that could shatter her fledgling trust in men and the wrong decision could leave more than her heart exposed to danger.

Hope you are enjoying your summer. I’ve been reading a ton of books (hence, the post on books), finishing writing the conclusion to the Bending Willow Trilogy, and almost sinking in the Boise River (it was kind of funny, especially since I didn’t drown). What about you? Are you floating or sinking?

    • Yeah, I go in reading spurts and haven’t wanted to stop lately. I’m finishing book 3 for my first trilogy…I wish it was ‘another’ trilogy…but sadly, it isn’t. I’m slow.

        • Yeah, I did call it the Eyes of Light trilogy, but just changed it recently when I found a quote that seemed to fit the trilogy to perfection. More on that later…once I get covers redone.

  1. So glad you didn’t drown.I live vicariously through you and your adventures. (I’m not very adventurous at all.) I haven’t read a Cami Checketts novel, but now I’m going to start. I finished The Husband Maker and Infinity + One and loved them both. Thanks for all the great recommendations. And I’m excited to read the third book in your series!

    • Glad you liked those other books! I’ll be glad when book 3 is done too. It’s taken me longer than all the rest and I don’t know whether that is because I’ve become more of a perfectionist or what.

  2. I thought the same as Carrie … that you were writing another trilogy! Somehow, I had missed the title change. I love willows; they’re quite mystical. Can’t wait to see the new cover designs, although I’m sure that isn’t easy.

  3. Well, even if you haven’t finished a second trilogy, I’m very impressed that you’re wrapping up one! I don’t know that I could sustain a story arc over that many books. As for me, I’m figuratively sinking from the busyness around me, but so far no literal sinking in a river! You have some explaining to do in future posts!

    • Ha ha, yes I do. I will make sure I explain soon. Life has been crazy here too, but I don’t think as crazy as your life has sounded. Good luck, my friend.
