The Shimmering Road was the first novel I had read by Hester Young. The Gates of Evangeline, the previous novel in this series, has been on my to-read shelf. I'm looking forward to going back now and reading it for more insight into Charlie Cates. I do feel that you can read The Shimmering Road as a stand alone, as I did, and follow the storyline and characters without any issue.
I really enjoyed The Shimmering Road. It kept my attention from page one, and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. There were just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. I hope there are future installments in the Charlie Cates series.
I received this book courtesy of G.P. Putnam's Sons Penguin Group through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
