Shatter the Silence was a really good suspense novel. The main characters, Tia and Jason, both had violent situations in their backgrounds. These experiences set up a very interesting relationship between the two. It was great to see how Jason viewed the work that Tia was doing at her shelter and watch as he pitched in to help when needed.
It was also important to note that both Jason and Tia did not think they would be a good match for each other with their backgrounds, but for different reasons. This highlighted the way the abuse from their pasts lingered and even affected their hopes for the future.
Although much of the book was peaceful, there were some threats that seemed to arise at various times, threatening the life that Tia had set up at her shelter. Were Jason and Tia just paranoid? Or was there really a threat to one or both of them? These questions simmered throughout the novel and made for some tense situations.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The hidden wounds bleed the worst…
Tia Jordan almost died at the hands of an abusive, cruel husband and carries the scars, both inside and out. She is using those experiences to help other women and children find solace. Right now, her abused women’s shelter is bursting at the seams. When she learns she’s heir to a huge two-story house outside of town, she thanks God for unexpected blessings, until a grandson shows up with another will, threatening to contest hers.
For the past several months, Jason Sloan has kept his nose to the grindstone, watching his mother’s cancer treatments dwindle away his savings. When he learns the inheritance he counted on has been left to Tia and her shelter, he’s torn. With his mother and him having been forced to flee an abusive situation themselves, Tia’s cause hits too close to home. All disagreements take a back seat, though, when he and Tia find themselves working together to fight an unseen foe. But which one of them is the target?
