    Compelling Start to Series

    Long Shadows hooked me right from the start; I found myself reading at every available moment and into the wee hours of Christmas Eve. This is the first in the Common Law series, which appears to be set up like a TV miniseries. There is a smaller plot contained and resolved within the novella, as well as a few different storylines that likely stretch out over multiple books. The pace was brisk, but never rushed. I enjoyed the way the law enforcement and suspense element wove into the story. It was a page turner, providing enough information that I didn't feel shorted out of any details but never getting hung up on excessive details. The main character immediately got my attention with his snarky comments that revealed an undercurrent of emotion he tries to hide. I appreciated how much background we got on Jericho throughout the novella, and I ended feeling like I had a good understanding of his character and motivations. Jericho's guarded and sarcastic side comes across with his inner thoughts as well as within the dialogue, almost like internal banter, making the book fun to read. The author does a great job using the dialogue to demonstrate the relationships Jericho had with the secondary characters rather than just relaying a summary of the past. The way the characters and Jericho's history with the town was introduced peaked my interest in the series as well as the secondary characters, and I'm intrigued to see how all the different players come together in Jericho's return to Mosely. There wasn't much romance per say in this book, but Miss Sherwood sets the scene for a continued romantic interest with his childhood friend and crush, Wade. I liked that there was a lot of build to their relationship and they weren't rushed together unnaturally just to provide some steam. It gave the author a chance to establish chemistry and guaranteed I'll be reading the next novella in the series to see how things progress. If you are looking for a new series or are a fan of law enforcement romances, I definitely recommend giving this book a try. **eARC provided to Alpha Book Club.

    A great start to a new series

    One of the first things that came to my mind after I read the blurb, was that this book I just might like and I was so right. Long Shadows got a hold of me from the very first page and I didn't lose interest while reading. Jericho returns to Mosely, Montana with every intention to get out as fast as he can. Of course things get a lot more complicated then he thought. Jericho as a main character is likeable. A guy who wants to do the right thing, even if his instincts are telling him to run. There's a bit forbidden love thing going on. Which only adds more points to the story. I liked how this story unfolded and how we get to know other charcaters. How I wished I could be in Wades head...but I admit that actually it gave the story quite a bit of mystery to not know what he was thinking. :D There were fun moments and I liked how slowly the romance part of the story moved. It was slow, but I could tell/feel as a reader that there's something there...a spark, chemistry between characters. I thought that Long Shadows is well written. Characters have depth, the storyline is interesting. I loved the dynamics between different characters. But most importantly. I believed the story and it worked for me. So it became one of those books that I read in a one go. Can't wait to read the next book in this series.
