"The Edge of the Shadows," by Elizabeth George, is the third in her Whidbey Island series. There have been a series of suspicious fires on the island, and coincidentally there are a number of new people staying there, including siblings Aidan and Isis, who are staying with their grandmother, and Parker, a musician looking to play at a local festival. As Becca and her friends discover, all of these people have secrets, and some of those secrets might be deadly, possibly even more deadly than the secret Becca herself is keeping…. I had thought that this was the final book in this series, but evidently there will be one more novel coming out later in 2016; and, indeed, there are a lot of dangling threads at the end of this story. I’m still enjoying it, although there seems to be a growing repetition in how the characters interact. Part of this is, of course, because the main characters are teenagers and as such are obsessed with sex and romance and finding partners, but I’m beginning to find that focus a little tedious. Still, I’ll read the final novel when it comes out, if only for the sake of completeness. So, a milder recommendation from me for this one. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 067001298X, Hardcover)

The first fire may have been an accident, but what about the second? And the third—the one that killed someone. Becca King and her friends wonder if one of the newcomers to the island is to blame. Perhaps it’s Isis Martin’s brother, Aidan, just home from a school for troubled teens. Or Parker Natalia, a talented musician fired by his bandmates for unknown reasons.

Meanwhile, Becca’s education in the paranormal continues, as fellow psychic Diana Kinsale encourages her to explore her growing extrasensory abilities.

Beautiful Whidbey Island may seem like a tranquil haven, but all is not as it seems.

The third book in the Whidbey Island saga confirms Elizabeth George’s place as a top-notch writer of suspense novels.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:59:23 -0400)

Someone is setting fires on Whidbey Island and Becca King and her friends may know who the arsonist is.
