Silence in the Dark - Logan Point 4 - by Patricia Bradley

Cover Art

About the book:

Bailey Adams is running for her life . . . again.
When Bailey Adams left Logan Point two years ago she thought she was getting away from her problems. Running into her ex-fiancé Danny Maxwell was not part of the plan--neither was being chased through the city by the local drug cartel, the Calatrava. Now despite her best efforts, Danny is her only chance of escaping the people chasing her and getting back to Logan Point safely. Can Bailey find the strength to face what's coming? And in the midst of the chaos, can she keep herself from falling in love with her rescuer all over again?

With lean, fast-paced prose that will keep you turning the pages, Patricia Bradley pens a superb story of suspense and second chances.

My review:

I enjoyed this suspenseful story with a cross-cultural flair!  Part of the story took place in Mexico and part in Logan Point, Mississippi.  The excitement started almost right away with an attempted kidnapping and race to escape the drug cartel.  It was interesting learning who was behind the attempt and wondering who Bailey could trust.  There was also some romance as she had to depend on her ex-fiance to help her and her young charge escape and she struggled with her feelings resurfacing.  Bailey also struggled a lot with fear as she went through a very traumatic experience as a child and had a hard time trusting.  I really liked a conversation she had with her mom about that and her mom's advice about turning it over to God.  It's okay to question why God allows things to happen and even when we don't understand why, we can trust who He is and look at the ways He's been faithful in the past.  Danny also struggled with forgiving himself and trusting God and I liked the clear way the author reminded him and us that nothing we do can separate us from God's love and that Jesus died for every bad thing we've ever done or will do.  While there were characters in this book from the previous ones, it's not a story you need to read in order as those characters were fairly minor.  I don't enjoy stories that deal with drug dealers and cartels as much as other topics, but this story kept my interest and was a good mix of action and relationships.  If you like suspense, I'd recommend this book.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
