about the book

Two years ago, Bailey Adams broke off her engagement to Danny Maxwell and fled Logan Point for the mission field in Chihuahua, Mexico. Now she’s about to return home to the States, but there’s just one problem. After Bailey meets with the uncle of one of the mission children in the city, she barely escapes a sudden danger. Now she’s on the run–she just doesn’t know from whom.

To make matters worse, people who help her along the way find themselves in danger too–including Danny. Who is after her? Will they ever let up? And in the midst of the chaos, can Bailey keep herself from falling in love with her rescuer all over again?

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

I love the Logan’s Point series by Patricia Bradley!! The fast-paced suspense, the characters, the light romance – it keeps you invested in the story and on the edge of your seat.

Silence in the Dark book reviewSilence in the Dark takes some of this intense action to Mexico before bringing it back home to Logan’s Point, Mississippi. But just because the scenery changes to something more familiar, it doesn’t mean that the danger lessens or that you can relax. Because you really shouldn’t.  I’m just giving you a friendly warning here as the conscientious book blogger that I am 🙂 Just when I thought I had it all figured out, something would happen to put the slightest bit of doubt in my mind & this kept me second-guessing until the end.

When they’re not running from the drug cartel or trying to figure out who else might be trying to kidnap them, Bailey and her young charge Maria must decide who to trust. And in so doing, Bailey has to decide whether she can open her heart again to both her former fiance and to God.  Here, the author lets her characters wrestle with real issues that don’t have easy answers – like why doesn’t God always answer our prayers the way we want Him to… especially when the alternative is tragedy or suffering.

Bottom Line: While this isn’t my favorite of the Logan’s Point series, it is most certainly an enjoyable read! Fast-paced suspense, sweet romance, and likable characters will hold you captive until you’ve finished the last word. Silence in the Dark can be read as a stand-alone if you wish, though I would recommend going back and starting from the beginning of the series so you can better appreciate the setting and the characters. Patricia Bradley consistently writes good fiction, and Silence in the Dark is yet another example!

    Oh, yes, I’ve read all of them and enjoyed them very much. The first one is still my favorite. It has the heroine with a fascinating career. Also, there’s more mystery, less villain viewpoint, and less viewpoints from everybody else.

    • Carrie

      I think the first one is probably my favorite too – although, I really liked the 3rd one as well!!

  2. Andrea Stephens

    I’m not sure I’m up for this much suspense right now. I’m feeling the need for fluff. Maybe I’ll download a sample and see how it goes.

    Thank you, Carrie for such an awesome review! I hope someday to go back to that first book and tell Scott’s story. 🙂

    I have one of her books, I think the first one. I need to move it up in my TBR! So many books, so little time!
