Publisher's Summary

Anna: Finds herself in Abilene without money, or a place to go. Lucy hires Anna to clean her "boarding house," which Anna discovers later is not what it seems. She has only one other option when Lucy offers her a job working upstairs - accepting Billy's offer.

Billy: Graduated from a seminary, but the church won't hire a single minister. He needs a wife, and he needs one quickly. He and Anna strike up an agreement. But - can they live within its confines?

Clean and sweet Christian romance. All books in the Shadow series can be listened to as standalone. They revisit previous characters, but each story is different.

    "Interesting Theme"

    A most enjoyable story with a very interesting theme about a two people who have found religion and how, when it is understood and applied correctly, they are able to live their lives well according to the teachings.
    Other characters have been brought into this story from other stories in this series and they all play a good supporting role and help this new couple.
    As usual, a very interesting and enjoyable story which has been nicely narrated by Jeff Moon and I am happy to recommend it.
    The audiobook version was provided by the author at no cost and this is my honest and unbiased review.

    "Billy’s Story"

    Great story about Billy and Anna, narrative was enjoyable and I did find that some of the previous male characters did come across much older men than they really are.
    Other then that I enjoyed it very much, I’m a big fan of Ms Barb Goss’s work

    "Billy's Story!"

    Billy showed up briefly in a previous Shadow book and I was excited to hear this story. After returning from seminary, Billy realizes that getting a job as a pastor as an unmarried man might be a bit tough. His solution was to find a sweet and innocent girl not known at the church and marry her, but to keep that marriage in name only. Anna was new to town, came from a rough background and was happy to take Billy up on his offer since it would keep her from selling her charms at the "boarding house" for ladies. Except can they keep their relationship simply a marriage of convenience?
    Great listen as Billy and Anna figure out exactly what they want from life and their relationship. I enjoyed the clean romance and the Christian theme through the story.
    Highly recommended listen!

    "Great read"

    Shadow of Love by Barbara Goss was a great read. The Shadow series is another must read by Barbara Goss. Anna is iin Abile e with no where to go and finds herself at what she thought was a boarding house. Billy is looking for a wife as the church won't hire him without being married. This is a great read that I loved reading.

    "Falling in love"

    This is a story of Anna and Billy
    Billy was a minister and was wanting a church. They wouldn't hire someone without a wife. So he searched for a wife in name only. Well God had other plans. This was a sweet story of love and faith. I was given a copy for an honest review. I highly recommend this story..

    "Loved the Story"

    I GOT THIS BOOK VIA AUDIOBOOK BOOM. This is book 5 of the Shadow Series and it was well done as well. Billy returns home from seminary school and is faced with the challenge of finding a bride so he can take the position of minister of Grace Church. Anna (Louisiana) has just arrived in town after witnessing her mothers death and is hired to clean the bordello. How they got together and how their HEA happened is a twisted tale that kept me listening. There were several audio editing glitches that should have been caught. They did not take away from the story. There was a lot of humor in this book. I loved the way Anna handled the man who bumped into her. Billy was also brought up short when he realized that he could love his wife and still do God's work. The fact that they began married life as a fake marriage did not sit right with me especially when Billy is the spiritual leader of the church. Overall that took away from the story.

    "Shadow of Love"

    Shadow of Love
    : Barbara Goss

    Book 5 in this series. A young couple that met and married as a marriage of convinence evolves as the story develops. William has reasons for wanting a platonic relationship. Anna has her own reasons. Characters from previous book make appearences. This is an interesting concept.
    There are a few surprising twists that keep the listener guessing.

    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Jeff Moon voiced this book well.

    "Recommended for historical romance readers"
    If you could sum up Shadow of Love in three words, what would they be?

    I recommend it.


    Any additional comments?

    My favorite in the series, so far. I made the mistake of beginning this book last night after
    finishing Book 4 in this series. As one might guess, I couldn't put it down until I finished
    it about 2:30 a.m. Great job by Ms Goss and narrator Jeff Moon. Now I'm on to Book 6! I'm really enjoying this series.
