Silence in the Dark by Patricia Bradley

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.

My Thoughts
I've been enjoying this series thus far and was excited to read this one. Sadly it didn't quite live up to my expectations. It started out pretty well, I enjoyed the characters and the action was pretty gripping from the very start. But as the book went on there were several times where I was pulled out of the story for various reasons such as corny lines and things playing out in a way that just seemed a little convenient and unnatural. That being said, it wasn't bad enough to make me stop reading and there were lots of good moments mixed in with the ones that didn't sit right with me. There wasn't as much romance in this book but since the characters had been previously engaged the feelings were already there they just had to get past the things preventing their relationship. I liked that characters from the previous books showed up in this one so we could see where their lives were.
So while this book wasn't quite as well done as the others in this series it was still an enjoyable read and this series is worth your time if you like romantic suspense!
