Some secrets should just stay buried. On the day Tristan Morrow is born her mother goes missing, prompting an investigation that produces no solid leads. Fast forward 15 years, and the Morrow family still doesn’t know the truth behind Catherine Morrow’s disappearance. When 15 year old Tristan is required to write a biography on her mother for a school assignment, she learns the truth about her mother’s fate, and is hell-bent upon finding out who was responsible for her death. But when Tristan herself goes missing too, everyone is suspect, even her own father. Set in rural Fox Hollow, PA, Shadow Dancer unravels a web of lies, deceit, madness and corruption. Can investigators crack the case before Tristan meets the same fate as her mother? And who is responsible for the disappearances? There is much uncertainty as the investigation unfolds, but there is one thing that is certain: Tristan Morrow holds the master key to the entire riddle.

Review by Angela
Stars: 5 

This is a mystery, suspense with a hint of paranormal. This is a stand alone, but I would love to read what happens in the future for the characters, I got so attached to some of them. I would recommend this to everyone, it is a wonderful book with a lot of details. I was engrossed with the book, and could not put it down. There is so many possible outcomes in the story, Addison Kline kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, she is so descriptive that I could picture the world of her characters. I really enjoyed the closeness of this family, how Jack (Tristan's dad)went to extremes to protect his family. How Tristan was determined not to allow her mother's name to be tarnished. Most of all the love Jack has for his wife Catherine. It is bitter sweet. This is a must read. 

This is a story about the Morrow family, detailed more on Tristan and her mother Catherine. There has been a secret kept since the day Tristan was born, and the secret is slowly being revealed. Tristan is your average girl next door, well other than the fact she really tries to succeed in her schooling. Until she is given an assignment that requires her to research her mother, Catherine, whom has been missing since the day Tristan was born. What Tristan is about to learn about her mother is the complete opposite of what she was told, what she has believed her whole life. Tristan's father has kept the secret about Catherine, not only to protect his children, but because to this day, fifteen years later he still has not accepted her passing. Now Tristan's only option is to defend her mother's name and prove what really happened to her the day she went missing. Little to her knowledge danger lurks close, and she is the target. Her family and boyfriend is trying desperately to keep her safe, are their attempts in vain? What lies will she uncover? Will she discover the truth before its too late?

"Pale as a ghost, she dropped her pencil onto her desk as she glared at the teacher with a gaping mouth."
"Tristan remained still with her arms crossed as she peered around at her dysfunctional family."
"Our mother left when left when I was born, and I am supposed to write about a person whom I don't know?"
"You have your father's moxie."
"The sun set over the mountain top as fog danced over the tree line."
"I remember every word Catherine ever spoke to me. Every glance, every touch, every exchange."
"The opportunity to speak my mind was entirely to delicious. I took the plunge."
"His facial features were overridden with emotion, an overwhelming combination of grief, exhaustion, sadness and anger."
"This bird has been pecking at this window for seven days straight!"
"Jack wasn't hiding anything other than his grief for Catherine."
"Family is important to him. Fiercely important."
"Don't remember her for her shocking death. Embrace her for the wonderful person she was when she was here." <3
