Book Review: Shattered Silence (Echo Falls #3) by Marta Perry
Title: Shattered Silence (Echo Falls #3)
Author: Marta Perry
Stars: 4 stars
Shattered Silence is a slow paced mystery that readers find themselves more interested in the characters than the mystery as the story moves from character development, mystery, excitement and back to story and character development.
While the story is very slow as Rachel Hartline is trying to figure out what her ex husband is up to readers are introduced into the would of Amish Farm that will bring readers into a new world where languages are different and life moves slowly.
Shattered Silence is a stand a long novel with a Happy Ending that readers will love.
For those who might be worried there is no sex in the book. A simple romance with a mystery.
Thank you to Netgalley and Harlequin Books for the advance copy.
A woman on the run seeks sanctuary in a peaceful Pennsylvania Dutch community—and finds a protector in the most unlikely of men…
One moment Rachel Hartline is secure in her career and community. The next, she’s in the wrong place at the wrong time—watching her ex-husband commit a crime that puts her in unfathomable danger. Fear and hurt send her home to an Amish farm and the family she’s always trusted. But a private investigator is close behind—and he may be a threat to her in more ways than one…
Cold, calculating Clint Mordan isn’t convinced Rachel is as innocent in her ex-husband’s schemes as she claims, but when her ex’s enemies target Rachel, Clint is driven to keep her safe. Maybe the terror in her beautiful eyes and the target on her back aren’t an act. But as his feelings toward her deepen, Clint realizes he’s the only one who can keep Rachel alive in a game where only the killer knows the stakes.
Expected publication: August 1st 2018 by HQN Books
