Can you imagine yourself with a desperately ill mother, and wanting to do absolutely anything to save her including donating a kidney, only to find out youíre not a compatible donor because youíre not her biological child? This is the beginning of Behind the Shadows by Patricia Potter.
Kira Douglas, a young woman has recently discovered that the mother who raised her and loved her unconditionally is not her birth mother. Babies were switched at the hospital within moments of birth. Kiraís only hope of saving her motherís life is to find her true biological daughter and convince her to not only have a DNA test to prove what Kira believes, but to then donate the lifesaving kidney her mother needs.
When Kira discovers that Leigh Howard is her motherís daughter she sets out on a quest to convince Leigh to do the DNA testing and donate the kidney. What Kira doesnít expect is that someone is out to harm either one of them. As the danger escalates it becomes clear that someone is out to harm both Kira and Leigh.
As the danger escalates Max Payton, Leighís long time friend and attorney and Chris Burke, a family friend of Kiraís set aside their distrust of each other to try to protect the women to whom they are becoming attracted.
I donít recall having read Ms. Potter before. Behind The Shadows surely must be just one small example of the page turning reads offered by Ms. Potter. I know that I will be looking for other reads that keep me glued to the edge of my seat, but donít prevent me from turning the lights off while I sleep.
