Silenced is book four in the Alaskan Courage series. This book can stand alone. So, if you haven’t read the other three books that come before Silenced, you won’t be lost in the storyline. But, I definitely recommend that you read the entire series because it is just so good! It is fun to see each McKenna sibling get their happily ever after! There are five siblings and they each get their own book in the series. Silenced focuses on Kayden McKenna and Jake Cavanaugh.
I love the way the author combines so much into these stories! There is always a wonderful romance brewing between the main characters and lots of romantic tension. On top of that, there is danger and a mystery or two to solve. Throw in at least one murder and the beautiful, majestic setting of Alaska and you have a book that kept me eagerly turning the pages to the very end. Silenced is a wonderful addition to the Alaskan Courage series.
I really enjoyed getting to know Kayden McKenna. She is so guarded, even with her family. And I just think Jake is a wonderful hero. He has such a tragic and painful past that he has had to overcome, and he is so desperately in love with Kayden! When they get paired up to work on solving the murder of a rock climber, it is fun to see their attraction to each other grow and their relationship develop throughout the book.
I highly recommend Silenced to readers who love action-packed mysteries, combined with wonderful romance. (5 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of Silenced from the author, through Bethany House Publishers, in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
