Shattered Silence + Giveaway

A woman on the run seeks sanctuary in a peaceful Pennsylvania Dutch community—and finds a protector in the most unlikely of men…
One moment Rachel Hartline is secure in her career and community. The next, she’s in the wrong place at the wrong time—watching her ex-husband commit a crime that puts her in unfathomable danger. Fear and hurt send her home to an Amish farm and the family she’s always trusted. But a private investigator is close behind—and he may be a threat to her in more ways than one…
Cold, calculating Clint Mordan isn’t convinced Rachel is as innocent in her ex-husband’s schemes as she claims, but when her ex’s enemies target Rachel, Clint is driven to keep her safe. Maybe the terror in her beautiful eyes and the target on her back aren’t an act. But as his feelings toward her deepen, Clint realizes he’s the only one who can keep Rachel alive in a game where only the killer knows the stakes.

My Review

I liked this book. The change of location to Amish country is what I enjoyed the most. Rachel may have been away a long time from her family but I didn't feel like she was an "outsider". She fit back into her family and their ways pretty easy. Although, it did help that she knew the language. Clint on the other hand was the "outsider".

Yet, I do have to say that I wished that Rachel was more assertive. If felt as if she would not have been able to take care of herself, if Clint was not around to save her. However, on the other hand; Rachel did help Clint to solve the case. Despite these elements, I did enjoy reading this book. It moved along at a good steady pace with not a lot of downtime.
