Silence in the Dark by Patricia Bradley - REVIEWED

About the Book:
Bailey Adams is running for her life . . . again.
When Bailey Adams left Logan Point two years ago she thought she was getting away from her problems. Running into her ex-fiancé Danny Maxwell was not part of the plan--neither was being chased through the city by the local drug cartel, the Calatrava. Now despite her best efforts, Danny is her only chance of escaping the people chasing her and getting back to Logan Point safely. Can Bailey find the strength to face what's coming? And in the midst of the chaos, can she keep herself from falling in love with her rescuer all over again?

With lean, fast-paced prose that will keep you turning the pages, Patricia Bradley pens a superb story of suspense and second chances.
My Thoughts:
The guy we went to see yesterday is dead.  Murdered.”  (p. 227)

I’d hate to live in a world where kidnapping was so common that people actually need kidnap insurance to pay the ransom!  Well, where drug cartels rule, apparently the insurance – or at least the promise of payment – becomes as deadly as the cartel members doing the kidnapping!  It is just wise to steer clear of anything drug related if possible!

Well, that possibility doesn’t exist in Baily Adams world when she commits to accompany a friend’s niece back to the states to see her grandparents. Sounds simple, right?  NOTHING is simple in the plot of Patricia Bradley’s latest Logan Point novel, Silence in the Dark!  The action begins fast and furious from the very first pages, and never lets up!  Just take my advice and stay far away from drug cartels!  Talk about some mean folks!  Evil has seared their conscious completely!

I’d love to know some of the research that had to go into this novel!  It must have been very intense, because the gun battles, the kidnapping, the car chases….everything is filled with believable details that keep readers glued to the pages!  On top of that, the romantic tension gets pretty intense as well!  There has been loss, and the story brings more loss to the characters, but love always finds a way, and the power of the transformation that love brings is written about just as convincingly! 

So, if you like a romantic, suspense novel that is filled with richly developed characters that take up residence in your heart, then you don’t want to miss this series!  The stories can be read as stand-alone novels, but you don’t want to miss the details!  Patricia Bradley!  She will make your heart race!!
