Jordan Buchanan is thrilled that her brother and best friend are tying the knot. The wedding is a lavish affair—for the marriage of Dylan Buchanan and Kate MacKenna is no ordinary occasion. It represents the joining of two family dynasties. The ceremony and reception proceed without a hitch—until a crasher appears claiming to be a MacKenna guest. The disheveled and eccentric professor of medieval history warns that there’s “bad blood” between the couple’s clans, stemming from an ancient feud that originated in Scotland and involving the Buchanan theft of a coveted MacKenna treasure.

Jordan has always led a cautious life and has used her intelligence and reason to become a successful businesswoman. So she is intrigued but skeptical of the professor’s claims that the feud has been kept alive by the grave injustices the Buchanans have perpetrated over the centuries. But when Noah Clayborne, a close family friend and a man who has never let a good time or a pretty girl pass him by, accuses Jordan of being trapped in her comfort zone, she determines to prove him wrong and sets out on a spontaneous adventure to the small, dusty town of Serenity, Texas, to judge the professor’s research for herself.

Maneuvering through a close-knit community in which everyone knows everyone else’s business, Jordan never anticipates the danger and intrigue that lie in her path, nor the threat that will shadow her back to Boston, where even in familiar surroundings, her life is at risk.

A powerful thug who rules by fear, a man who harbors a simmering secret, and an unexpected romance that pierces all defenses—beloved author Julie Garwood weaves these dazzling elements into a brilliant novel of romantic suspense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Read I love Julie Garwood. All her books are wonderful reads and there is something for everyone. Shadow Music and Shadow Dance go together and they are both wonderful. I always enjoy reading Garwood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book. I enjoy more of Garwood's historical romances but this modern one is really good. Romance with a mystery, it was a page turner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shadow Dance by Julie Garwood Earlier this week, I read the novel “Shadow Dance” by Julie Garwood. This novel started with a marriage scene of Buchanan’s son in a small town of Silver Springs, Carolina south of Boston. Buchanan’s family was one of the respected families in the town. There was a lot of security for the judge Buchanan. All of his family members were concerned about his security; therefore, they appointed bodyguards for him from the best officers of FBI. Jordan is the daughter of the judge. Professor McKenna, who already had some links with Jordan via internet, arrived at the function. He told her about the treasure of her family. He told her the story of her ancestors and invited her to come to a small town of Serenity Deep in Texas to find the truth. Then the author described how she reached there and involved in multiple murders. I was stunted through reading this novel. Professor McKenna’s dead body was found in her car trunk, just next day of their meeting. She was caught by the local police. She called her brother who was also an FBI officer to help her. He came with his friend Noah for the initial investigation, bailed her and left Noah with Jordan for security. Here started a new relationship between Noah and Jordan but both of them did not want to admit it. FBI officers struggled to find the treasure and the killer through out the story. The novel was too excited and full of suspense that I could not stop reading. Then at the end, it was very exciting to know that there was no treasure and it was started with a lie. Professor McKenna just wanted to inform the judge through Jordon about a big murderer who was living in that town. The way the story was approached is really good. It had romance, thrill, suspense and a shocking end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "For the love of... Unless you plan to get under the covers, I suggest you keep your pants on." This book is a romance and thriller at once. Add in some contemporary shake, and you've got Shadow Dance. I rather liked that the title is a play on Jordan's father's situation (bodyguards shadowing his every step) inadvertently happening to her when she finds the dead body of a historian she's met two days prior in the trunk of her car and her brother Nick and Noah Clayborne, two FBI agents, fly at her aid. Hence, being shadowed by bodyguards of sort. Then Nick has to leave, for matters unknown, and suddenly begins a dance of should-shouldn'ts with Noah even as they try to find the real murderer, who proves to be one heck of a surprise. This is a great read, and I found it refreshing, witty and intelligent and less tedious than some of her previous works. The writing is fast-paced, which makes sense as this is a thriller as well, and Jordan and Noah's relationship does not bloom quite as suddenly as has been said. Re-reading through it, you'll find that Noah unknowingly had feelings WAY before they even began *cough* dancing. Anyway, hopefully we'll get to read more about Jordan and Noah and their treasure hunt!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute It's a cute easy to read book. No substantial depth to the book. It’s a book you read for lack of other good books around, or if you want to read a book that does not require a lot of thinking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I just couldn't put the book down. It felt like I was there watching it all happen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really poor While I have loved Julie Garwood's books for many years now, Shadow Dance is really very horrible -- lack of interesting plot, unappealing characters, and no chemistry between the two main characters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not her best book... Okay, so I waited for the paperback to come out , bought the book , made a cup of coffee & sat down to loose myself in Ms. Garwood's story thinking it was going to be one of those afternoons where you can't put the book down & read until midnight ! No such luck, the story was very short, dry and I felt no chemistry between Jordan & Noah, to me it felt like the book was written in one afternoon - there was nothing holding your attention. The plot line was great , but it was missing the usual Garwood magic & juice.... I can't quite put my finger on it.... I am a great fan of Julie Garwood, have all her books in my home and sometimes I re-read them, but this one missed the mark Renata from Montreal
