Review: Cold Shadows [Ellie Jordan #2] by J.L. Bryan
Cold Shadows is the second book in Ellie Jordan series, and it's taken a week or two for me to get around to reading it. Living in a haunted house has got to be creepy, right. How about living in a house with four ghosts..one of them a possible poltergeist? Well this situation is Ellie and Stacey's next investigation, and it's one that starts off quickly.
Cold Shadows was a quicker read than the previous book. I also notice a pattern with the houses....they are all fabulous massive houses, which are my dream house...except I don't think I want the hauntings. Once I began reading Cold Shadows and the hauntings really started they felt more intense and more life threatening, and there was some really creepy goings on, but I loved every page of it. Yes I was nervous, worried whether Ellie, Stacey, or even Jacob would survive the night, but it made Cold Shadows that much more gripping, and I really did not want to put it down.
I really liked that we get to see more of Jacob and that he once again is recruited to help solve a case. His skills are an asset that Ellie and Stacey really need, much to Ellie's annoyance. This trio really know how to pack a punch and their teamwork together certainly gets a job done.
Cold Shadows is a great installment in the Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper series, and the author has once again done an amazing job at drawing you in, and making you sit on the edge of your seat trying to guess what is going to happen next. I can't wait to read the next chapter for Ellie and Stacey.
