Book Summary:

Branwell D’Angelo . . .
Six years ago, I fell in love with Lucy—my brother’s girlfriend. Stupid of me, I know, but sometimes the heart doesn’t listen to reason.

Six years, I’ve lived on the sidelines. Seeing him love her, be with her, bask in her sunshine . . .

I watched her break his heart and then cleaned up the shattered pieces of him she left behind.

She’s the one woman I can’t have but still the only one my soul wants.

Now she’s back in our lives and needs the unique help only us D’Angelos can give.

He’s not emotionally strong enough to face her. So he’s sending me instead . . .

For her part, when tragedy strikes Lucy Snow on a visit to Italy, she can’t bring herself to call any of the D’Angelo brothers for help. There are consequences for falling in love with your ex-boyfriend’s brother. But Lucy desperately needs Branwell’s paranormal skills and his gift of Sight. And if seeing him will negate at least three years of therapy? Well, it’s a price she is willing to pay.

Thrown together in a desperate bid to save an innocent life, Branwell and Lucy struggle against their shared past, only to realize that something even more dangerous is reaching through the weight of time to stalk their every move . . .

Though the second book in the Brothers Maledetti series, Love’s Shadow is a full-length, standalone novel.

Karens review

I was excited to read this book since I’ve loved the other book I read by this author. I picked it up to read on a day I was off work sick. This was a good idea since it was a hard book to put down. Reading it helped take my mind off how I was feeling. I loved the page design. I found the magic in this book very interesting. And this book has excellent characters and a fabulous story. Already, two days later, I want to go back and reread my favorite parts of the book. I also want to read the first book in the series and look forward to reading others in the series when they come out.
