Arriving home from a short holiday in Dingle, Lily Crossways makes a staggering discovery – on one of her photos taken on 'Inch' beach, a woman's desperate face is staring directly at her. Yet Lily knows she was alone that day on the beach.
Who is she, is she even real, and why has she appeared to Lily?
Unable to let the woman go, Lily makes the uncharacteristic decision to leave behind her safe world in England and return to Dingle to try and find her. Her search eventually leads her to cafe owner David Carson, this woman's brother, who hasn't seen his 'missing' sister in five years.
Lily must now convince him to trust in her, taking bold steps to prove herself to him, and together track down his sister before it’s too late.
Yet are either prepared for the hidden secrets they are about to uncover in their earnest desire to find her, and the impact it will have on those they love?
Lily Crossways lives a controlled, uninteresting life where she keeps a tight rein on everything to ensure she never experiences hurt or disappointment. But the problem with this is that Lily never experiences anything at all. So when she returns from a short holiday in Dingle, which made her begin to question her choices, to find an image of a woman in one of her photographs, Lily knows that she must find out who this stranger is. Because there was no one else on that beach that day, and Lily feels a strange connection to this haunting woman. Going against her usual rigid control, Lily returns to Dingle to try and solve this mystery. But when she meets David, things will never be the same again. With plenty of intrigue and suspense, INTO THE SHADOWS by Marie Jones is an enjoyable read which catches the essence of Dingle perfectly, while keeping the reader gripped with the storyline. While Lily got on my nerves at certain times, I still really enjoyed the characters and their development. Overall, INTO THE SHADOWS by Marie Jones is well worth a read if you like an intriguing mystery in a beautiful setting.
BOOK RATING - 📖📖📖📖 4
My passion for writing and creating stories began from a young age, where I loved nothing more than writing stories into my special A4 lined exercise book.
I remember my English teacher reading out one of my stories to the whole class and encouraging me to keep writing. Later in life, I went on to study creative writing at evening class.
My favourite place to write is in my lounge when the house is quiet and my kids are out (though have learnt to write around noise!).
I have always been an avid reader from the first moment I could read, and some of my favourite authors are Kate Moreton, Santa Montefiore, Philippa Gregory, and Nicholas Sparks to name a few. Any book that grips me, will always pull me in.
Around writing and family life, I also work part time as a Teaching Assistant at a local primary school, every day encouraging the budding talent of our future writers.
I'm married, and we have two gorgeous children. I'm loving being in my 40s and highly recommend it!
My other passions include photography, travelling and pencil drawing. I ran my own photography business for a few years and had my photos exhibited.
I've been fortunate enough to visit many countries around the world, yet Ireland still remains one of my all time favourite countries. What an amazing world, full of God's beauty and creation, we live in...
Whether I am writing stories, photographing or drawing, everyday men and women with all their amazing complexities will always fascinate and inspire me. For more information:
