I was a bit surprised to find out SHATTERED SILENCE is not Christian fiction, but it is a clean read. Ms. Perry has penned a romantic suspense where there heroine flees to Amish country after her ex-husband steals company files and someone assumes she knows something about them so they are targeting her. I had my suspicions from almost the beginning who was behind it and I was partially right, partially wrong. I did like Rachel's interaction with the Amish family and Clint was a nice guy if someone tactless. For the more conservative reader there is some swearing, and some alcohol consumption. This was the third book in the series, but it stands alone. I didn't read the first two and I wasn't lost. I didn't enjoy this as well as I do the normal romantic suspense with a faith message. It started very slow and draggy, and it seemed rather thick for a mass market paperback. There was a bonus short story included at the end though, which I am not reviewing. So in a way, this is a two story anthology, with the first being considerably longer than the second. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

With the ascended tension of the investigation and the sweetest love story developing in the shadows of it, the Shattered Silence captured my mind, vastly entertaining and holding my interest with the frantic search for the truth and near escapes from the potentially deadly attacks. I loved how the graceful homecoming for Rachel Hartline to her Amish roots made me smile and brought so much joy to the story, while the intensifying suspense put me on the edge, only hoping for the best. Rachel is a strong and capable, smart and independent heroine who was easy to like, admire and relate to. From a young age, she has learned not to trust easily, being let down by the ones who should love and care for you the most. But that has not made her bitter or hard, quite the opposite, she is kind, resilient, considerate, generous person, all the trades she learned during her summers at the Amish farm with her grandparents. Clint Mordan is a complex, wounded hero. What at first seemed like a cold and hard man, goal oriented with no sympathy, turns out to be a considerate, kind, gentle, fiercely protective hero, who would do anything and risk everything to keep Rachel safe, and alive. I enjoyed how the story was built, how the moments of fear, dread, and tension take turns with the adorable times with the family at the farm. The tale is well written and had such an easy flow to it, the development of the plot was so effortless and smooth, going from fun and enjoyable to frightening and even deadly without missing a beat. The characters were well thought out, the protagonists had depth and stood out, they had a tangible chemistry in between them, while the story held in the clean and sweet category when it comes to the romance. Shattered Silence is an entertaining, dramatic, and thrilling story, suitable for all suspense as well as romance readers. It has an intense, arresting investigation, splendid and touching romance, and a homecoming that will remind the readers of the importance of a family, of the people who will always be there for us, a life-lesson of trust and forgiveness served as a side dish. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

Shattered Silence is the third book in this series, and while each can be read alone, they are all equally good. This story the author has given us a divorced woman who soon finds herself in trouble, and this is all due to her ex-husband, and because of what happens is thrown into the company of a private investigator, and back to Echo Falls, her sanctuary and home to her Amish Grandparents. There are so many bombshells here and most you won’t see coming, so be on alert, and hope for justice to prevail. Once you turn the first page you will be hooked and looking for answers, just what is going on, and how will this impact an ex-wife? I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
