Wynter Evans is a promising young reporter for a television station in St. Louis, but even a bright future doesn't take away her pain over the disappearance of her brother nine years ago. So when she stumbles across a photograph of a boy with an eerie resemblance to him, she can't pass up the chance to track him down. With research for work as her cover, she sets out with one of the station's photogs for the place where the picture was taken: the town of Sanctuary. 
Almost as soon as she arrives, she meets the town's handsome young mayor, Rueben King, and together they begin to uncover long held secrets that could tear the small town apart and change everything Wynter thought she knew about her life. As the truth of her family's past hides in the shadows, it's clear someone will stop at nothing to keep the answers she's searching for hidden forever--even if the cost is Wynter's very life.

MY REVIEW:  Murder, kidnapping, Old Order Mennonite, oh my, which of these does not fit????  They are all a part of Nancy Mehl's newly released Gathering Shadows.  I absolutely love this book!  5 Stars + !!!   Meet Zac, the cocky young photographer, for instance, you kind of love to hate him at first and then, all of a sudden the young ponytail swinging fella develops a heart!!!   He actually becomes one of my favorite characters.  And who could not love Wynter Evans, the young reporter who just wants to get a good story and oh, yes, find her long-ago kidnapped brother......the one her family thought was dead.  But now she sees him wearing Old Order Mennonite clothing and living in the sweet, quiet, quaint little town of Sanctuary.   You must read this to discover what happens?  Will they find the boy? Is he Wynter's brother?  Or is she just chasing a dream?   
I was given a copy by the publishers in exchange for my honest review and one by the author so that I might offer a giveaway.
