Reviews for the Book
A smooth continuation of Mountains and Shadows thanks to the prologue. The author adds a few surprises along the way which makes the romance between the two main characters more interesting. The suspense builds with the addition of a few colorful people in another country and the book is hard to put down - an intriguing look into the art world as well. - Jackie
About the Author: Sherrie Todd-Beshore
I began writing and publishing as a reporter then editor of my high school newspaper ‘The Static’. Ten years later I committed to writing columns and features professionally for weekly magazines then daily newspapers in Alberta,Canada – Colorado, USA and New York. In 2006 I took another writing leap leaving journalism for full-time fiction: MG/YA mystery and adult suspense-thrillers.
I’ve been so fortunate to have lived, traveled or worked in many European and Mediterranean countries. I have dual Canadian/US citizenship and call all of North America ‘home’. My husband and I blended a family of five offspring in 1990. Those ‘adventures’ first featured in the Denver Post became material for my first non-fiction book [Blended Not Shaken-2003] the 2nd edition “ANOTHER-BLENDED NOT SHAKEN” was published in 2015.
To date I have 17 titles in print and eFormat – of which my adult fiction mystery “FINE POINTS MALICE AND PAYBACK” was selected by the Independent Press Award Committee for a 2019 Distinguished Favorites Award in April then in June my Middle Grade fiction THE CROW CHILD was a Purple Dragon Book Award Winner via Story Monsters Ink. In 2020 another of my mystery suspense thrillers THE COUNT OF BALDPATE was chosen for a Distinguished Favorite Award – thrilled and honored. My sequel to “Dream Gate…Grabbing Air” is out and available – DREAM GATE II…GRABBING TIME.
