The Shadow and the Rose

(1 customer review)

"Ash Grove [is] a realistic and engaging world, and its seclusion, fierce loyalties among friends, and compassionate adults are Hogwarts-like at times. A satisfying supernatural YA tale that effectively mixes high school, magic and mystery." --Kirkus Reviews

In book 1 of the Ash Grove Chron­i­cles, when ordi­nary high-school junior Joy Sum­n­er vis­its a grave­yard at mid­night on a dare, she doesn’t expect to end up shar­ing a kiss with brood­ing teen mod­el Tan­ner Lind­sey. And she def­i­nite­ly doesn’t expect to make an ene­my of Tanner’s seduc­tive, sin­is­ter men­tor, the age­less super­mod­el Melisande—who may not be entire­ly human—or to find that her sleepy lit­tle cor­ner of North Car­oli­na is buzzing with super­nat­ur­al ener­gy.

But most unex­pect­ed of all is when Joy finds that she’s preg­nant. And when Tanner’s love for her puts his life in dan­ger, will she be able to res­cue him and save their future togeth­er? Get swept away by the romance and mys­tery of Joy and Tanner’s sto­ry in book one of the Ash Grove Chron­i­cles!

[J]ust the right mix of romance, adver­si­ty, and action… Even the scenery seemed mag­i­cal. It was para­nor­mal but real­is­ti­cal­ly so. I can’t say enough about how much I real­ly loved this.” –Michelle McQueen, Ama­zon review­er

Read­ers will find them­selves cheer­ing for the bud­ding rela­tion­ship between Joy and Tan­ner!” — Rose Mary Espinoza, InD’­Tale mag­a­zine (
