I found Rachel Grant a few years ago and found myself unable to walk past her books without buying my own copy. Her characters are smart, strong, and a little over the top romance.
The men fall in love hard and fast with the women. Silent Evidence is a mix of romance, reminder what PTSD does to a person and how hard it is to recover without help.
The book isn't really a stand alone as it bring out characters from other books that readers of the series loves. Not to mention things that happened in book 4 are bought up once again.
The author tries to keep readers updated but those starting would feel lost
The romance is traditional Rachel Grant with things happening in odd places. The author covers topics that are current social events.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of Rachel Grant Silent Evidence.
Two things haunt forensic anthropologist Hazel MacLeod: the bones of victims of genocide she examines for her work, and former SEAL Sean Logan’s rejection. But within days of moving to her cousin’s estate to take a much needed break, she finds herself faced with both.
First, she’s called in to examine a mass grave in Virginia, then, her politician cousin receives a threatening letter and insists Hazel needs around the clock protection—from none other than Sean Logan. To make matters worse, because the threat to her is classified, Hazel and Sean must pretend to be lovers to hide that he’s her bodyguard.
Sean has spent years trying to avoid his boss’s sexy cousin, but now he’s guarding her twenty-four/seven and even bringing her as his date to a romantic destination wedding. As the heat between them intensifies, Sean can’t lose sight of the danger that brought them together. But when bullets start flying, new questions arise. Are the senator’s political rivals really behind the threat, or is someone trying to silence Hazel from speaking for the dead?

About The Author:
Rachel Grant worked for over a decade as a professional archaeologist and mines her experiences for storylines and settings, which are as diverse as excavating a cemetery underneath an historic art museum in San Francisco; surveying an economically depressed coal mining town in Kentucky; and mapping a seventeenth century Spanish and Dutch fort on the island of Sint Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles.
In all her travels and adventures as an archaeologist, Rachel has found many sites and artifacts, but she’s only found one true treasure, her husband, David. They met while working together excavating a four thousand year old site about to be destroyed by the expansion of a sewage treatment plant in Seattle. Despite their romantic first meeting, she has no intention of ever setting a story at a sewage treatment plant.
Rachel Grant lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and children.
