Jake Knew Something Was Wrong.
But He Never Guessed How Wrong.
A relaxing day of rock climbing takes a disturbing turn when Kayden McKenna's route brings her face-to-face with a dead climber. Is it a terrible accident or something darker? When the case is handed to overburdened sheriff Landon Grainger, he turns to Jake Westin for help. With Jake's past now revealed, he's ready to use his talent for investigation again--but he could never prepare for where the mystery will take him.
Kayden's climbing expertise soon leads her and Jake to the realization that the death was no accident. And worse, it seems the killer is onto them. When strange things begin happening in Yancey, Jake is terrified that once again his world may put someone he loves in danger. But the truth is far worse than he could ever imagine.
I honestly don't know what I'm going to do when this series is over and there is only one book left! One brother's story left to tell. Sniffle. I feel a mourning period coming on. I am so attached to the McKenna clan that I can't bear the thought of losing touch with them. Am I crazy? Probably, but happily so.
For readers who have not read any of the Alaskan Courage series, no worries that you'll feel left behind. Silenced reads well as a stand alone. However, die-hard fans will be thrilled to learn that they get to attend two McKenna weddings in this book. Two! Be still my giddy heart!
I have to confess that I have been waiting for Kayden and Jake's love story since...forever! Honestly, there were such choice bits between them in the other books that I was sure their story would be next and it never was. Talk about amping up the suspense! I found myself in the delectable dilemma of wanting to read slowly so I could savor every word and wanting to read like a speed demon because I just couldn't stand not knowing what was going to happen next!
Rich characterization drives this story. These characters live and breathe and bleed. I care for them more than my own family (slight exaggeration). I want to be adopted into their family (no exaggeration). A solid suspense plot with so many twists and turns I have whiplash put Kayden and Jake and the rest of the McKenna's through their paces until the explosive, nail-biting conclusion. This is the kind of book you feel bereft after finishing because you simply don't want it to end.
