Stalked by Shadows (2019) Lissa Kasey (Simply Crafty)

Stalked by ShadowsAlexis Caine received a medical discharge from the army after witnessing an attack that the government insisted could not have happened the way he stated. After a stint in a mental hospital, he goes home with his twin, to try and restart his life.

My social services coordinator had given me the grim fact that over 70% of ex-Rangers were unemployed.

Micah Richards runs a small craft shop and gives ghost and cemetery tours in New Orleans. And according to Lukas (Alex’s twin) not only will Alexis make a good bodyguard for the tours, he things Alex and Micah would also make a good couple.

“You seem to know a lot of history.”

“I majored in history. Had plans to become a teacher.”

But Micah also has a strange supernatural experience in his past, which still haunts him.

When a woman disappears, it appears Micah and Alexi might be have clues in their pasts to what is happening now.

Assuming they survive events.

I’m not lead detective on it because you’re involved and the department is a little pissed at me.”

“Why?”

“Because while Micah was wrapped around you to keep you from getting shot, I was standing in their line of fire.”

As all the other books by her I’ve read, she has great mental health rep with her characters.

We aren’t saving the planet or humanity, we aren’t changing the world, we are barely making it through each day. But you know what?” I asked him as I ran my fingers through his hair. “That’s okay. We are doing the best we can being us.”

There’s something so amazingly reassuring, reading about characters who are struggling, but still get through they day.

His fight or flight mode was shutting down. Too much stress did that sometimes. Had that happen to me a time or two, so overwhelmed that I couldn’t function, even breathing was hard when that happened. Sort of like a panic attack, only silent, a mental collapse inward.

The reminder that things cycle, and it’s okay if you have a bad day (week, month) because you’ll eventually come out the other side.
