Stalker in the Shadows by Camy Tang is a Love Inspired Suspense novel. I have read many of her novels (most recently Protection for Hire), but this is only the second of the Love Inspired novels that I've read. I didn't realize when I started the book that it was Book 3 in the Sonoma Series, but it is the third in the set. Fortunately, reading them in order is not a prerequisite.
Monica Grant is one of three daughters of Augustus Grant, owner of an upscale spa in Sonoma. Monica is also a nurse. She is taking care of her father after he experienced a stroke, but is working on raising support to open a Free Children's Clinic in the area. While meeting different potential sponsors, she finds that she is being stalked... someone doesn't want her to open the clinic. She hires Shaun O'Neill to protect her while she continues her efforts towards opening the clinic.
Shaun O'Neill was a border patrol agent, until something happened on his watch. Before that, his sister was killed and he didn't save her... everyone that he should protect dies. Now, he has someone new to protect, Monica. Can he keep her from being killed? Can he solve his sister's death?
As they work together to find the stalker, Shaun and Monica can feel the attraction, but they are both fighting it. Monica has no desire to be in a relationship with a police man, she knows the dangers he faces in the field and doesn't want to be the one left behind. Shaun struggles with his "inability" to protect those he cares about. Can they trust God and find love? Will they find the killer?
Stalker in the Shadows was a quick and easy read. I really enjoyed reading it and the suspense it held. As I said earlier, you don't have to read the first two books (Deady Intent and Formula for Danger) to understand or enjoy Stalker in the Shadows.
