Book Review: Silence in The Dark

30 May

51bDf2Az4QL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_Two years ago, Bailey Adams broke off her engagement to Danny Maxwell and fled Logan Point for the mission field in Chihuahua, Mexico. Now she’s about to return home to the States, but there’s just one problem. After Bailey meets with the uncle of one of the mission children in the city, she barely escapes a sudden danger. Now she’s on the run — she just doesn’t know from whom. To make matters worse, people who help her along the way find themselves in danger too — including Danny. Who is after her? Will they ever let up? And in the midst of the chaos, can Bailey keep herself from falling in love with her rescuer all over again?



A1zndxFSplL._UX250_Patricia Bradley lives in North Mississippi is a former abstinence educator and co-author of RISE To Your Dreams, an abstinence curriculum. But her heart is tuned to suspense. Patricia’s romantic suspense books include the Logan Point series set in Mississippi and two sweet romances for Harlequin Heartwarming, Matthew’s Choice and The Christmas Campaign are available on Amazon. She is currently working on The Memphis Cold Case series.

Patricia’s workshops on writing include two online courses with American Christian Fiction Writers and workshops at the Mid-South Christian Writer’s Conference in Collierville, TN. When she has time, she likes to throw mud on a wheel and see what happens.


My Impressions:

For fast-paced romantic suspense, look no further than Patricia Bradley and her newest book in the Logan Point series, Silence in The Dark. Old and new characters return to Logan Point, Mississippi where danger and love combine for a quick and satisfying read.

Bailey Adams runs from complications, seeing herself as a coward when it comes to tough situations and relationships. Danny Maxwell has never stopped loving Bailey, and when the two are thrown together in Mexico in their attempts to elude drug cartel members, both kidnappers and killers, sparks fly.

Romance and suspense keep this page-turner going. Twists and turns abound and no one is sure just whom to trust. Danger comes from the known and the unknown. Characters are likable, with doubts and fears common to all. In fact, the theme of fear/anxiety/guilt and their power to keep us away from those we love, as well as the God who loves us, runs throughout the book. I especially like that the author points out that keeping our eye on our circumstances and trials, keeps us from trusting in God.

A perfect book to take on your summer getaway, Silence in The Dark is another winner from Patricia Bradley. Please note: Silence in The Dark is book 4 in this series, but can be read as a standalone. But I recommend starting from the beginning — the series is just that good!
