Welcome to:

This month Nana and I read:

Is Bristol Blackburn about to meet the love of her life...or her killer?
Seventeen-year-old Bristol has never had a problem with the ghosts that float in and out of her life. It's all the people with a pulse that confuse her.

After the death of her parents, Bristol's life is thrown into chaos and she's forced to move to Spirit, a small town where shadows are stirring. As she learns to navigate her new school and figures out how to keep her psychic abilities secret from her family, Bristol comes face to face with the boy who makes a regular appearance in her dreams: the gorgeous, possibly deadly, Payne McKnight. Soon she'll find out if Payne will be the love of her life, or the end of it - and she has no idea which possibility scares her more.

And that's not even the worst of it. Strange shadows are haunting her dreams, and they're up to something that could put Bristol and the lives of everyone she loves in jeopardy

My Review:

This paranormal/young adult book had plenty of action. The very first chapter had me hooked, and I couldn't wait to read more. Visions of Shadows read like a remake of the Hatfield's and McCoy's with tons of fluky paranormal disturbances. Two families, the McKnight's and the Blackburn's  have various paranormal talents, and have been dueling it out for a century in the bizarre town of Spirit.  
Throughout the story Bristol Blackburn is infatuated with Payne McKnight, the enemy of the Blackburn's. She kept saying she'd never date Payne. But in reality, she couldn't get enough of him. That goes on for quite a while, until... Sorry, I don't leave spoilers. Vision's of Shadow's is an easy read. Though, I took longer than normal to read this novel and I can't explain why. 

Let's hop over to read Nana Prah's review!


  1. Great review Cathy. The comparison was accurate. I loved the chemistry between the hero and heroine. I'm curious to know why it took longer than usual to read it. I flew through it.

  2. Seems interesting! I certainly have had experiences like that. I enjoy a book but the timing is just off or something--maybe too much going on in my life. Reading a book is a definite mental commitment and sometimes it's easier than other times!

  3. Thank you for the wonderful review!
