Shadowlands by Kate Brian

One afternoon, on the way home from school, Rory Miller is attacked by Steven Nell; an infamous serial killer who has eluded police for over a decade.  Steven Nell is not one to give up, the only other girl escaped him, and he came back to kill her and her entire family.  So, now Rory, her sister Darcy, and their father must enter the witness relocation program.

The town they move to, Juniper Landing, seems like an idyllic tourist town.  A great place to blend in, and a place where the family begins to heal. Then, Rory's new friends start disappearing and Rory is scared that Steven Nell has found her again.

This book was fast-paced and atmospheric.  It was also pretty violent.  I figured out the "twist" to the end before it got there, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the book.  I am seriously looking forward to the rest of the books in this planned trilogy.

This review is based on an e-arc I received from Netgalley.  I received neither payment, nor awesome swag in exchange for this review.
