Sound of Fear

GIVEAWAY
PERRY, MARTA
SOUND OF FEAR

In the sweet subtle wind of a Pennsylvania Dutch town, a lost woman and a man of duty will risk their lives to uncover her true identity.

The foundation of Amanda Curtis's very existence cracks the moment she discovers the woman she thought was her mother has never given birth. Where she belongs is a question she can't put to rest. But when the clues lead her to a charming yet chilling small town, the threat against her begins to unfold.

Trey Addison is a fixture in Echo Falls. The town and the people are his to protect. He was born to take his place in the family legal firm, but now that a stranger desperate to unlock her past is depending on him, he's forced to make an impossible choice. If Trey doesn't protect Amanda, she'll walk straight into a deadly trap. If he helps her expose the secrets that haunt her, the truth could shatter them both.

My Review:

A page-turning suspense with a Gothic air and a dash of Amish. I absolutely love these HQN Marta Perry novels. Not in the Christian Fiction genre I usually read and review, but delivers a clean read and the suspense is so scrumptious. Amanda's world is turned upside down after the unexpected death of her mother -- the woman she always thought had given birth to her. Now with her inheritance in possible jeopardy, she needs to discover the secrets of her past and that leads her to the quaint, Englisch/Amish town of Echo Falls -- a place seething with secrets. Cue the scary organ music and be prepared for drama and danger as a family's skeletons are exposed.

If you have fond memories of reading Gothic romantic suspense by legends like Phyllis A. Whitney, Mary Stewart and Victoria Holt you will absolutely, positively love Sound of Fear (and it's predecessor, Echo of Danger.
