Book Review: ‘Lone Witness’ by Shirlee McCoy

About Shirlee McCoy

New York Times best-selling author Shirlee McCoy loves books. She loves reading them. She loves writing them. She loves sharing them with family, with friends, and with total strangers on airplanes and in doctor’s offices. It’s no surprise that she loves being an author. Her first book was published in 2004. Since then, she’s written more than 45 novels. Her books have appeared on the New York Times, Publisher’s Weekly, and USA Today bestsellers lists.

Of course, her love for books pales in comparison with her love for family. When she’s not writing, she’s homeschooling her two youngest children and spending time with the people she cares about most. Her books are a reflection of her passion for relationships and community. An advocate for adoption and a firm believer in the power of faith, love, and compassion, Shirlee writes books that explore the dynamics between siblings, parents, children, and friends.

She enjoys hearing from readers and writers. You can email her at or catch up with her life and writing at

My Review

My rating: 5 stars

‘I spent nine years living in a graveyard of dead dreams, pretending it was Cinderella’s castle. If that’s not sad enough to cry over, I don’t know what it.’

I only discovered Shirlee McCoy’s books recently and now I get the pleasure of reading a lot of them without waiting for new releases. The lady knows how to write inspirational suspense well. I loved this from page one. She engages the reader immediately and our interest is held throughout the book.  Very well done!

Publisher: Love Inspired
