Review: Beneath the Shadows by Sara Foster

About the Book: When Grace's husband, Adam, inherits a cottage on the Yorkshire moors, they leave London behind to try a new life. A week later, Adam disappears. The following year, Grace returns with her baby daughter, Millie . She is desperate for answers, but resigned to preparing the cottage for sale. With no-one prepared to divulge their secrets, Grace finds herself unwilling to trust anyone. Then, just as snowfall threatens to cut her off from the rest of the world, she makes a terrible discovery. In the aftermath, she realises that she has been looking in the wrong place for answers all along. In the wild winter weather she sets out to reclaim her daughter from the one person seemingly intent on taking Millie away, praying that she will reach them in time.

About Sara Foster: Sara Foster lives in Western Australia with her husband and young daughter. She divides her time between writing, book editing and being a mum. Her passions include the natural world, photography and travel.

Review: I haven't read a mystery for a long time as normally I associate mysteries with the likes of Agatha Christie and conjure up images in my mind of Miss Marpel and Midsomer Murders. And although I am well aware that these stories are well loved by many they are not my cup of tea. Sara Foster was able to deliver an interesting whodunit without the stuffy conitations. She was able to incorporate the tradition and mystasism of the Yorkshire moors with a subtle modern twist that kept me interested.
