    For me, the best thing about this book was the friendship between Johnelle and Alice. Their deep emotional bond transcended marriage. Even if it was entirely platonic, their love for each other was very evident. I love that Alice stayed in Johnelle's life even after she knew she could never have her. It seems to be more reflective of real life than what we normally read in lesfic--the usual trope that if she can't have the love of her life, then she should stay as far away as possible. It shows [...]

    The main premise of Etched in Shadows hits a bit too close to home for this reader,minus the plane crash. Those of us who conformed to society's expectations do and don't regret the choices we have made in our lives.My only beef with the book is the age old need to come up with unique names for the characters. Johnelle?! Dorky name. Annoyed me every time I read the name.

    With this author you always get a well written and pacy novel.Why this isn't a 4 stars book in my opinion is the handling of the whole altered perception after the incident. Strange as it seems, I ended up having sympathy for husband!Couldn't understand the whole way the he became an arse in the second half of the book. Wow, feel like I need to talk to the wife about this ;))

    Etched in the shadows by KG MacGregor This book shook me a little bit. I love KG MacGregor books but this one has left me thinking about it days after I've finished it. The Story follows two strong southern woman. Alice owns a real Estate business that she runs with her Mother. She a lesbian and has been in love with her best friend Johnelle for all of her life. Johnelle seems to have the perfect life. She is married to her college sweetheart Dwight. They both seem to genuinely love one another [...]

    Sweet story about long term friends finally finding each other. I think Johnelle and Alice are realistic characters, and what they've gone through (probably minus the crash) mirrors something that even normal people would gone through. The friendship between the two is beautifully written, and I do think that the bond in friendship can sometimes just be as deep.

    A very good and interesting book.

    I very much liked this one. I'm still debating if I'll write a full review but I really liked it.

    Let me first say that the friendship between Johnelle and Alice is heartwarming. Everybody should be honored to have a friend like Alice.The story really appealed to me. And to about 50% of the book I thought this would be a five star book for me.(view spoiler)[ that Johnelle discovers that she is in love with Alice when she awoke from a coma, was a twist that I liked.But after a while I could only think "When is she going to share these feelings with Alice"?And then when they mention these feel [...]

    I kept thinking Alice was a doormat. Then I understood that maybe for Dwight she was just a tool, but for Johnelle she was everything. Even if Johnelle lost herself in the dreamworld everyone wanted her to live in. Goes to show, sometimes all you need is a good smack in the head to see things clearly.

    This was a good book. It read like a romance novel that was really light on the romance. I think it would have been better if the situation between Johnelle and Dwight had been resolved earlier in the book and then have the story focus more on Johnelle's new life and recovery.

    Line
    It's a good written book, for some reason it didn't grab me that much.I never really got into the characters, not sure why.It was an enjoyable read, but my favorite KG book.

    MacGregor's work is very hit or miss for me. I loved Rhapsody and Just This Once, but Trail by Fury and Etched in Shadows were lukewarm at best. My problem with this book was that I empathized with Dwight instead of Alice. I do not know why MacGregor thought it would be a good idea for Johnelle to be married. At the time of the accident, Johnelle and Dwight had been married happily for 19 years. Dwight was not a perfect husband (who is), but they were both devoted to one another and in love. Joh [...]

    F/F romanceWhat a morbid little fantasy- loved it!Just how long would you wait for that one woman who makes you complete? Would you still love her forever if she wasn't "whole"? What if you could only have her if she were deeply damaged and might never be her old self again?The questions posed here might not be something we like to think about, but sometimes, terrible, terrible things happen. I was totally engrossed in this premise and eager to find out just how permanent the damage would be. I [...]

One of the three people to survive the crash, Johnelle suffers a traumatic brain injury that puts her memories and feelings at risk. Alice Choate, Johnelle's best friend, has been in love with Johnelle for almost as long as she can remember, but she's stood [...]

    I normally really get into books by K G MacGregor, but I found this book was not to her normal calibre. At first I couldn't place what was different. The story line isn't far fetched and it flows reasonably well; on reflection I think there just isn't the same degree of attraction or yearning between the characters to keep you page turning and in suspense. Good read but disappointing compared to her other books.

    Ginger Miller
    Very good book.This book is just good! Perfect characters, great story, wonderful setting, tons of emotion and a little sad too. McGRegor does a great job here. No one is the villain things just happen that can't be stopped. A great couple not in the same league as Lily and Anna or Judith and Carmen but still good. Speaking of Lily and Anna I would LOVE to hear from them again.

    It's nice to know that after twenty years, they can still rekindle their love.
