This book is part of the Buchanan sibling series. All have been very good books. The Buchanan books are: "Heartbreaker" (Nick), "Mercy" (Theo), "Murder List" (Alec), "Slow Burn" (Dylan), & "Shadow Dance" (Jordan). There is also an intersecting character story involving the brother of Michelle from Theo's story. "Killjoy" comes after "Mercy".

Jordan Buchanan and Noah Clayborne! It is about time for Noah to fall in love. Loved this book as much as the ones before it. I think it is better to read them in order so you get the most of the the stories.

Love this series and all the characters. This one isn't quite as edgy as some of the earlier ones but no less entertaining, or difficult to put down.

Noah Clayborne's story. Noah dances with Jordan at Kate and Dylan's wedding, and goads her about getting out of her comfort zone. Jordan tries to ignore Noah, but his comments aren't easily forgotten. She decides to go on an adventure to research family history, and becomes involved in a murder in a small town in Texas. When Nick and Noah arrive, they find Jordan in jail, a suspect for the murder. Julie Garwood's story is easy to read, but somehow uninvolved with the characters. Humorous, yet told as if from a distance. Still a nice read, but it's missing the emotional development in the characters that usually is so satisfying in her books. Almost as if just reporting events.

Jordan Buchanan stops an elderly man who has crashed her brother Dylan and her best friend Kate McKenna's wedding. Professor McKenna claims that he has proof of a long-running feud between the Buchanan and the McKenna clans that dates back hundreds of years. He blames all of the problems on the Buchanan clan. Jordan decides to prove him wrong. She takes him up on his offer and follows him to a small Texas town. The professor gives her his research to copy. The next day when Jordan tries to place the boxes of research in the trunk of her car, she finds a dead body. A few minutes later, Jordan is taken into police custody and has been accused of murder. Her only option is to call her brother Nick and his partner Noah who work for the FBI.

Noah knows Jordan well. In fact, he goaded her into getting out of her comfort zone which is why she decided to go to Texas in the first place. Noah finds a bumbling sheriff, his ex-con brother, and a corrupt police chief are trying to railroad Jordan into confessing to a murder. Noah gets her out of jail and decides to have a look at the case to see if he can help solve it.

This story takes place in a small town where there are a lot of memorable characters who know everyone's business. There is a lot of humor in it. Jordan keeps finding dead bodies everywhere she turns. I liked Noah since he was introduced in the first book in the series; and I thought Jordan was a good match for him. But there is just something missing from their romance that I can't put my finger on. Still, it was an entertaining book and probably my favorite of the series so far. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Noah Clayborne's story. Great Story. Worth the read.

I don't know how she does it, but Julie Garwood makes us bite our fingernails, laugh, and pant with ...okay, lust, all at the same time.
Shadow Dance is full of heart throbs and mysterious and dubious characters...and if like me, you like your mysteries more on the curious and suspenseful side rather than the "Now I'm too scared to go to sleep in my own house" type of mystery, this is the book for you.
Add some Scottish treasure to be searched for, and a brother's best friend to try not to fall in love with...and you've got the recipe for a fun read.
