“Mom, are you going to cause trouble for him?”
“You bet I am,” she said, grabbing her keys. “Logan Brisco has met his match.”

Carny Sullivan has more in common with Logan Brisco than she cares to admit. Carny has been raised around carnivals and con men and can spot a hawker a mile away. When Logan Brisco bursts onto the scene in the peaceful little town of Serenity, Texas, Carny smells a rat. She’s determined to expose his underhanded schemes and refuses to be swayed by his charm. She doesn’t want to see the honest, hard-working people she loves scammed out of their money and goes on an all out assault to expose Logan’s plans.
Although Logan won’t readily admit that Carny has him accurately pegged, he loves the challenge she presents and is certain he’ll win the upper hand (as always). Sparks fly and the tension builds as Logan and Carny face off, each determined to prove the other one wrong. I really enjoy the “cat & mouse” feel of this plot as Logan manages to stay a few steps ahead of Carny. The tension between them is electric and held my interest all the way through this book.
Another GREAT story by one of my favorite authors, Terri Blackstock. I have yet to find a book written by her that I haven’t liked! All of her books are amazing and if you haven't had the chance to discover this author yet, you definitely need to get her books on your bookshelf.

Carny Sullivan grew up in the zany world of a traveling carnival. Quaint and peaceful Serenity, Texas, has given her a home, a life, and a child. Logan Brisco is the smoothest, slickest, handsomest man Serenity, Texas has ever seen. But Carny Sullivan knows a con artist when she sees one—and she’s seen plenty, starting with her father. As far as Carny Sullivan can tell, she’s the only one in town who has his number. Because from his Italian shoes to his movie-actor smile, Logan has the rest of the town snowed.
Carny is determined to reveal Brisco’s selfish intentions before his promise to the townspeople for a cut in a giant amusement park sucks Serenity dry. Yet, as much as she hates his winning ways, there is a man behind that suave smile, a man who may win her heart against her will. Shadow in Serenity is a modern-day Music Man, penned by a Christy Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author.
