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.

I wish that in the description of the book that it hadn't said it was a modern "Music Man." For me that ruined the reading of the book, as I then knew what was going to happen from the beginning. Even though I didn't know the details of how it would work out, I was right. If that was removed from the description and if I had realized that this was not a typical "suspense/action" from Blackstock (and that was my fault), then I would have given it a 5 star. I was tempted to give it just 3 stars, due to the description and my expectations but it was still a good story.
This book was a good story, but honestly not my favorite Terri Blackstock book. I am used to more murder and suspense whodunit stories and this one didn't have that. Having said that, the story was a good one and was full of very memorable characters, a lot of whom I wish I could call my friends. It is a lot more slower paced than a typical Terri Blackstock, but I would still give it a chance! Maybe if you went in knowing this, it would change your opinion about the book. I would also like to say you should read the note from the author at the end and it explains it a bit more. I still love you Terri and am happy to say I will still be reading your books. It's nice to see that you can easily go between murder and romance stories!
It reminds me alot of the Music Man plot with a Christian twist :) Con Artist tries to win over the one woman in town who doesn't fall for his con, woman eventually is won over, and the con artist reforms (with God's help). I actually like the Music Man, but it was just hard to get that out of my mind as I was reading the story, so I didn't care for it as much as her other books. But that's just me.
