Shades of Doon by Carey Crp & Lorie Langdon

Shades of Doon (Doon, #3)Book Description:
After cheating death, Veronica Welling is determined to savor every moment in her idyllic kingdom with both her true love and best friend by her side at last. At the same time, Mackenna Reid is enthusiastically building her new life and a theater with her prince. But just as their dreams of happiness are within reach, the world Vee and Kenna have chosen is ripped away, leaving them to face their most horrific challenge yet—their old lives.

Thrust out of Doon, the best friends are confronted with tormentors from their past and no way to return to their adopted land. When the MacCrae brothers rush to their rescue, the girls' situation turns from nightmare to modern-day fairy tale. But their happiness could be short lived: unbeknownst to them, someone in their closest circle is aiding the witch of Doon in her bid to destroy the kingdom once and for all.

My Thoughts:
I think this is my favorite Doon book so far.  Kenna and Vee's lives are going great.  Everything is going the way it should be and then boom.  They are back in the real world.  Doon is gone and they have to deal with their lives like the were before they left.  Their loves come after them to rescue them, but everything and everyone are not what they seem.
I love the friendship between Kenna and Vee!  They are total opposites but such a great fit for each other.  Faith is woven perfectly (and I believe more prominently) throughout the book.  The authors do a great job with imagery and you 'see' everything the way they describe it.  I thought I would completely dislike a Doon book not set in Doon, but I really liked it!  I missed Doon but it was an intriguing change.
This was a 4/5 and really close to a 5/5 for me but there was just one thing I couldn't get over!

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book (via BookLook).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
