Winter Reads: Silence In The Dark by Patricia Bradley


Revell; 350 pages; $14.99; Amazon
While my favorite romance novels are the historical kind set during the 1800s, I have been trying to expand my reading horizons by reading contemporary titles. This lead me to read Silence In The Dark by author Patricia Bradley, which is book 4 in the Logan Point series. I remember reading book two in the series, A Promise to Protect, a few years ago, so I thought I would give the 4th entry a try.

Yes, the cover art looks like an advertisement for a made-for-Hallmark mystery flick, and, unfortunately, the plot feels like one of those movies as well.

I'm going to try my best not to include any "spoilers" or repeat the book's blurb. The plot involves a woman named Bradley on the run from the cartel. Coincidentally, she runs into her ex-fiance, Danny, and of course he is going to help her.

Final Thoughts: It's been over two years since I had read the second book in the series, and as far as I can tell the books are pretty much stand alone novels. Silence In The Dark has a "on the run from the bad guys" plot, but there are way to many plot holes and predictable moments to make the novel enjoyable. The characters are likeable, but heavily cliched. While reading the novel, I had the feeling I had either already read a similar book or had seen a movie with the same plot.

Overall, I'm not going to recommend the title to anyone. I thought it was too predictable and poorly written in spots.
