About The Book:
Alex, a single mother-of-two, is determined to make a fresh start for her and her children. In an effort to escape her troubled past, she seeks refuge in a rural community. Pine Ridge is idyllic; the surrounding forests are beautiful and the locals welcoming. Mostly. But Alex finds that she may have disturbed barely hidden secrets in her new home. As a chain of bizarre events is set off, events eerily familiar to those who have lived there for years, Alex realizes that she and her family might be in greater danger than ever before. And that the only way to protect them all is to confront the shadows lurking in Pine Ridge.

My Review:
I really enjoyed The Safe Place by Anna Downes and am happy to say that The Shadow House is just as good. Told in alternating points of view we have Renee and Alex, both with teenage sons with secrets. I enjoyed Renee's chapters much more than Alex's. I found Alex to be a little irritating. The point of this one is watch what your kids are doing on-line as we never know what's lurking on the internet. 

The setting of Australia was so lovely and so descriptive. I loved reading about all the animals, plants and bugs. I was really surprised by the twist and the ending was a blast. I really can't give it four stars though as Alex's chapters got my nerves too much.

With many thanks to NetGalley, Anna Downes and St. Martin's Press, Minotaur Books for the giving of the ARC.
