Deb’s Dozen: Missionary Threatened in Mexico, Danger Follows to States, Must Protect Innocent Child Bailey Adams runs away as a habit. When her engagement to Danny Maxwell ends, she flees Logan Point to be a missionary in Mexico. Patricia Bradley’s Silence in the Dark romantic suspense novel begins with a vignette showing why Bailey runs and then takes us to Mexico where Bailey is a missionary. Bailey’s running again—threatened by the “priest” in the Mexican village she serves, she runs to another town. Then she and a visiting friend from the village see poppy fields on their way back home, and in turn, the owner of the field spots them. Warned by her friend not to go to the police or to say anything, Bailey heads back to the States. She’s shepherding a little girl on her way to her grandparents. Surely, Bailey can handle this assignment. Then she sees Danny in the restaurant she is dining in with the child’s uncle, Joel McDermott. And life comes crashing in again. Why is Danny there? And why is Joel acting so strangely? How do Danny and Joel know each other? Is that the Father Horatio who terrorized her in the village? Bailey’s happy she’ll soon be on a plane and away from all the danger. But the danger’s only beginning. Bradley then leads us on a twisted trail of drugs and gambling and gun running and corruption—and does so brilliantly. You will be frightened for Bailey, cheering for Danny, and caught up in the puzzles of the events. I couldn’t put the book down and finished the Silence in the Dark in one sitting. Five stars! Patricia Bradley lives in Mississippi. She is the founder of Aiming for Healthy Families, Inc., and a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers. She wrote the Memphis Cold Case series that you’ll want to get as well as the rest of her Logan Point series. Check her out at PTBradley.com. Revell, a division of Baker Publishing, gave me a copy of Silence in the Dark, but I was in no way obligated to write a review.

I enjoyed returning to Logan Point and catching up with some friends from previous books in this series. Get ready to hold on to your seat as the suspense unfolds and the intrigue deepens. Bailey Adams has been in Mexico as a missionary teacher for eight months and has developed some strong attachments to the people there, particularly Maria, the four-year-old daughter of a Mexican father and an American mother who are both dead. Danny Maxwell, to whom she was briefly engaged, suddenly appears in the cafe where she is eating breakfast before catching a flight home for a short visit. Things unexpectedly take a nasty turn and they are running for their lives with Maria in tow. She was making the trip with Bailey in order to visit her mother’s parents who live a couple of hours from Logan Point. Although they escape the evil men who are after them, they are hard-pressed to know who they can trust. Even back in their home town, they are constantly looking over their shoulders. Knowing that the Mexican drug cartel is involved, Danny and Bailey initially believe the crooks are chasing them so they can kidnap Maria for ransom. The plot takes another sinister twist when they realize there is much more at stake than the risk of Maria getting kidnapped. This story has a great mix of action, suspense, mystery, romance, and faith woven throughout its pages. If you enjoy romantic suspense, I recommend you read this book.

Patricia Bradley ups her game again in delivering superb Must-Read Suspense. She consistently writes fast-paced action racing from the opening crime scene to untangle complex and sometimes confusing suspense trails to lead us to the undeniable solution. The same thing can be said of her work that I heard a music reviewer say of a great classical composer, “this work is consistently stirring and satisfying.” In everyday life Bradley is also an expert pottery-maker using a wheel and glazes to full advantage. She uses that same eye and craft to form unique well-developed and (mostly) likable characters--except for her villains. With each suspense novels she has upped her game, and when I think nothing can top her previous one, Gone Without A Trace, she proves me wrong with Silence in the Dark which I sincerely say is this author’s best book yet. However, I also know Bradley is currently writing more and I’m sure is spinning more superb suspense that will keep us up way past normal hours and make us forget to breathe until we reach ‘The End’. I’m glad this hard-working author is committed to writing more books.

What I love about Patricia Bradley's novels are that they're all filled with fast paced action. Silence In The Dark is no exception. It's packed with frightening scenarios that make you wonder how the characters are going to make it out alive and still believe in God. Ms. Bradley's spiritual themes of whether one can earn God's love and forgiveness, and God planting us where He wants us, made this novel an enjoyable read. I'm looking forward to Ms. Bradley's next series! I received this book from Revell in exchange for my opinion.

Patricia Bradley ended the Logan Point series with a bang! I've enjoyed watching each of the characters develop and move on with their lives and I've also eagerly anticipating each of the new characters in the following novels. Each story has had it's own unique story line but there has been a thread that was woven through each story. Silence In The Dark begins in Mexico where Bailey Adams is serving as a missionary. By chance Bailey stumbles upon the local drug cartel and that leads to some very intense survival scenes. I was drawn even further into the unfolding drama by the selfless acts of strangers. We're reminded that sometimes it's important to reach beyond yourself and make a difference in someone's life, even if you don't know them. I refuse to give away an ending, but I will say this, you will be blown away with the beauty of a second chance. When I closed the cover I had a smile on my face. In the end we're reminded that circumstances may seem dire but there is always hope because God is on His throne. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

Patricia Bradley in her new book, “Silence in the Dark” Book Four in the Logan Point series published by Revell takes us into the life of Bailey Adams. From the Back Cover: 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. Bailey starts off in Mexico where the bad guys try to kill her. She escapes with Maria back to Logan Point and the bad guys try to kill both her and Maria there. I am not going to give the identities of the bad guys away but get ready I don’t think you will be able to figure it out. If you are in the mood for some crime solving, lots of danger, really diabolical villains, romance, and plenty of fun trying to figure out the criminal mastermind then you have come to the right place. “Silence in the Dark” is a thriller, no doubt about it. Just when you think you might know where the story is heading Ms. Bradley tosses in another turn which you take at high-speed on two wheels. Ms. Bradley makes her Bailey and Danny so real and you root for them to complete their mission and you root for their romance to blossom. Ms. Bradley knows how to tell a story that keeps you flipping the pages and guessing as to who the bad guy really is. This is a wild ride read. I am sorry to see this series end but I am looking forward to the next offering from this highly talented author. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Revell Publishers.

Death awaits them at every turn... Suspense/mystery is my favorite genre to read. I devour as many Christian fiction titles as I can. When I picked up Silence In The Dark I was totally in the mood for some crime solving. And got exactly what I was looking for: danger, diabolical villains, a little romance, and plenty of fun trying to figure out the criminal mastermind. Patricia Bradley did a good job keeping me guessing, too. So, I'll go out on a limb here and risk saying that I loved the beginning of the series but it it went on it seemed to lose a little of the flavor of the first book. Boy, Silence In The Dark got it back and then some. The gorgeously dramatic cover really caught my attention but the story within captured me to the point that I could hardly put it down even when my eyes were drooping at three in the morning. Patricia Bradley's latest installment in the Logan Point series is filled with lots of chilling excitement and danger sure to thrill any lover of romantic suspense.

I love the Logan’s Point series by Patricia Bradley!! The fast-paced suspense, the characters, the light romance – it keeps you invested in the story and on the edge of your seat. Silence in the Dark takes some of this intense action to Mexico before bringing it back home to Logan’s Point, Mississippi. But just because the scenery changes to something more familiar, it doesn’t mean that the danger lessens or that you can relax. Because you really shouldn’t. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, something would happen to put the slightest bit of doubt in my mind & this kept me second-guessing until the end. When they’re not running from the drug cartel or trying to figure out who else might be trying to kidnap them, Bailey and her young charge Maria must decide who to trust. And in so doing, Bailey has to decide whether she can open her heart again to both her former fiance and to God. Here, the author lets her characters wrestle with real issues that don’t have easy answers – like why doesn’t God always answer our prayers the way we want Him to… especially when the alternative is tragedy or suffering. Bottom Line: While this isn’t my favorite of the Logan’s Point series, it is most certainly an enjoyable read! Fast-paced suspense, sweet romance, and likable characters will hold you captive until you’ve finished the last word. Silence in the Dark can be read as a stand-alone if you wish, though I would recommend going back and starting from the beginning of the series so you can better appreciate the setting and the characters. Patricia Bradley consistently writes good fiction, and Silence in the Dark is yet another example! (I received a copy of this book in exchange for only my honest review.)

Great suspense, I do love a book that takes off with a bang and keeps the tension at a level where you do not know when the next big event will be!! That is what this book did for me. Great to see characters from previous books, the characters are well written and keep the story interesting. I love Danny and Bailey. One of my favorite characters was Angel. He was a great sidekick, that was written well enough to be and equal to Danny. I enjoyed reading all about Robyn’s sister. This entire series is fantastic!

This book starts fast paced and just keeps rolling. I did not want to put this book down. This is book 4 in the Logan Point series and I loved it. This starts in Mexico where Bailey Adams is running from a drug cartel with a friends daughter and then she gets help from her ex fiancé, Danny. Will things work out in Logan Point or will things go wrong. I received this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion.

Nutshell: In book 4 of the Logan Point Series, Bailey Adams is in Mexico working hard at making a difference in peoples lives as a missionary. With her broken engagement from Danny Maxwell a thing of the past, Bailey immerses herself as a school teacher and enjoys teaching the women in a local village about Jesus. Bailey is asked to escort one of her student's, who is also her friend Joel's niece, home to the U.S. to visit her grandparents for the first time. With plans set in place and one last meal before heading to the airport, life changes in a flash. Not only is her ex-fiance at the same Mexican restaurant, but the local drug cartel shows up and attempts to kidnap her and her little friend. A series of events puts Danny and Bailey back together, running from the Mexican drug cartel, even in the safe haven of Logan's Pointe. Who is calling the drug cartel shots and why are they after Bailey and the little girl she's escorting? Pro's: Captivating for sure! A very fast-paced story with events changing every chapter. An easy read to jump in to even as the 4th book in the series. Previous characters were alluded to from previous books, but it was still easy to understand. Con's: Some seemingly very important medical scenarios at the beginning were not so important at the end, and I think that could've been woven through the book better. Recommendation: A good read that takes you to the last pages hoping for more. If you enjoy suspenseful books, this keeps you turning the pages! Revell sent me this complimentary book to review for them. Opinions expressed are my own.

Silence in the Dark is the fourth book in the Logan Point book series and even though I did not read the first books I did not find this story hard to follow; however, I would advise reading them because I’m sure they provide extra information on some characters and background information. There also does seem to be a continuing plot- something about guns being stolen and sold illegally in Mexico- that appears to have trickled down from the books previous, but, again, I don’t know -I didn’t read the other books. This is the story of Baily and her ex-fiancé Danny trying to survive a drug cartel and escape Mexico alive. Danny was my favorite character and I felt an immediate kindred bond with him because we shared the same name. Because of this I was extremely biased- anything bad that happened in the story was not Danny’s fault. Also I found myself disliking anyone who hurt Danny or made him upset (you mess with one Danny you get the other). Baily was one of those characters who incurred my wrath. I didn’t like it that she broke poor Danny’s heart (even if I knew where she was coming from- she survived a pretty traumatic childhood incident) when she broke off her engagement with him two years prior to the happenings of this book. However Baily and Danny are not the only characters as there is also Maria, the young girl who Baily was put in charge of getting to her grandparents; the misplaced waitress, Solana, who lost her job and endangered her own life when she helped save Baily’s and Maria’s lives; the mysterious Angle who, while he is helping them, has an agenda all his own; and Joel, Maria’s uncle, who at the surface seems like a nice enough guy, but could be hiding some pretty nasty secrets himself. This is an intense, fast paced book that I read in a little over a day and enjoyed greatly. My thanks go to Revell Publishing for providing me a copy for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Silence in the Dark was a nice addition to the Logan Point series. It was not my favorite it the series, yet I enjoyed it. The story can stand alone, however, the suspense plot of this book is tied to book three in the series and is a continuation on one of the storylines in that novel. I have to admit that I figured out the villains very early on in the book, however, I still enjoyed reading Silence in the Dark. I liked watching as the romance began to bloom again between Danny and Bailey. The questions that both of them posed about God led to meaningful discussions and decisions about their beliefs. Angel was a favorite character of mine. Watching his story unfold and seeing where it took him was especially nice. I really wanted to see more of the characters from the previous books and find out a bit more about how life was treating them. That would have made the book for me and would have helped me feel a sense of completion with these stories. But, overall a good, suspenseful read. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Missionary Bailey Adams is anxious to return home to Logan Point, even if only for a visit. Bailey has made some very dangerous enemies in Mexico and needs to gain perspective on her role there. On her last day in Mexico those enemies, a disgruntled shaman, someone from the Calatrava drug cartel, or a kidnapper after Bailey’s charge, young Maria Montoya, have Bailey and Maria on the run. How long is the arm of those who would do these two harm? To what extent will they go to carry out their plans? Will Logan Point, Mississippi put enough distance between them? Bailey has known all along that going home to Logan Point means inevitably running into her former fiance, Danny Maxwell. She had not however considered the possibility of their paths crossing in Chihuahua, Mexico, and is totally taken aback when that is just what happens. Now it seems Danny is the only one she can trust to get her and Maria to safety. Each mystery in Bradley’s Logan Point series has included well laid out clues and plausible red herrings. The fast paced action, crisp dialogue, and engaging characters will have readers carrying the books wherever they go, snatching moments whenever possible to catch the next turn of events. While reading the books in sequence will allow the reader to understand some references regarding characters and events from previous books, the books do work well as a stand alone read. Patricia Bradley has become one of my favorite mystery authors. Mystery fans of Irene Hannon, Lynette Eason, and Colleen Coble will be proud to display Bradley’s books on their shelves as well. I thank Revell Publishing and the Christian Blog Alliance for providing Silence in the Dark for my honest opinion. I received no monetary compensation for providing this review.

From the moment you turn the first page to the end, you will find each of these people looking over their shoulder, who is the evil one and whom can they trust. After her ending her quick engagement of one night Baily Adams flees to Chihuahua, Mexico, and when this story begins we are about to return to the States for a visit. While in Mexico, you can see that God placed her there, and she was following His will. She runs into an evil shaman, who claims to be a priest, who does many things to run her out, and have her stop having the natives follow the bible. When Bailey returns she is given into her care a precocious four-year-old Maria Montoya, and you will wonder why. When she and Marie become a target, you will be surprised who comes to her rescue, again and again. Then there is also Angel Guerraro, and is he a person to put your trust in, or is he part of the Cartel. Such evil abounds, and just whom do you trust, and are you making the right decision when you do. Loved how bible verses are used here as clues to their where about when kidnapped. Can you imagine having to carry kidnap insurance, seems to be a common practice in Mexico. Come and enjoy a great roller coaster ride, and hope the ones we start to care about, come out on top.

Two years ago, Bailey Adams high-tailed it out of Logan Point and went to Mexico as a teacher/missionary. She will soon return to Logan Point, Mississippi, accompanying four-year-old Maria Montoya to meet her maternal grandparents. Maria is being raised by her uncle, Joel McDermott, since both her parents are deceased. Plans change the day they are scheduled to fly to the States. Joel is abducted, and Bailey and Maria flee. It is happenstance that they encounter Danny, and she eventually and wisely accepts Danny Maxwell’s help. Danny is Bailey’s ex-fiancée. He still loves her, and it is highly probable that she still loves him. But she’s been living in the shadow of the person she thinks she should be, that being a person that is ‘good enough’ for God. She feels like a fraud, and now her life is in danger on top of it. People from the city’s drug cartel, La Calatrava, are after her or Maria. But Danny is determined to stick with her and protect her. He’s teamed up with Angel Guerrera, who has his own personal battles with the Calatrava. A waitress named Solana finds herself with the group after her assistance aids in the safety of Bailey and Maria. Then the danger follows them all to Logan Point. Can Bailey face what is coming, especially with Danny so near? The novel had a dramatic start, and the story was fast-paced from there. I appreciated my first story from Patricia Bradley, and I also appreciated that I did not feel lost to tons of back-story, considering this is Book 4 in the ‘Logan Point’ series. This novel was a thrill of a ride with love and resistance, hope and despair, faith and doubt, tension, danger and not always safety in numbers. Bradley tells through story that faith doesn’t generally come easy, nor does it come without troubles. When Bailey considers herself a fraud, it isn’t because of one incident. No. The first trouble ‘was just meringue on the pie.’ And so perhaps that is the case for all of us at times, though hopefully in far less dramatic and dangerous fashion than what Bailey goes through! -- Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Revell Books.

Silence in the Dark is the fourth book in the Logan Point series. I have read the second book in the series, A Promise to Protect, and don’t feel that it is necessary to read them all in order to enjoy this book. That being said, I did enjoy seeing some of the characters from the previous book I read. Silence in the Dark follows Bailey and Danny as they try to escape Mexico and return to Logan point. Bailey feels that once they are in Logan Point that they will be safe, but Danny doesn’t agree. Why would the notorious drug cartel, the Calatrava, be after Bailey? She honestly feels that God called her to minister in Mexico, but lately hasn’t felt safe. Visiting her family feels like just what she needs. But can she make it there? Or is the Calatrava determined to make sure she never leaves Mexico? Danny seems to be her only way out of the country; is it possible to put aside her feelings and let him help? In a world where there are very few people you can trust, Bailey knows she has no chance but to rely on Danny. Can they make it home safely? Or will they just be bringing danger to those closest to them? There are so many unexpected twists and turns, you will never be able to guess what’s going to happen next. Bradley kept my interest the entire time, and I found the book nearly impossible to put down. I loved that the characters had a past and had to look beyond their feelings to work for a common goal. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Romance and Suspense. I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions expressed are my own.

This fast-paced suspense kept me turning pages late into the night. It was a perfect blend of mystery, suspense and romance. Reunion romances make the idea of a romance blossoming in such a short time in such dire circumstances so much more believable. And I love that Danny got a second chance to prove his love. Pat did a fantastic job of believably portraying Bailey's struggle to put God's will for her life ahead of the desires of her heart. The spiritual thread is nicely woven through the story. And I love how Bailey's parents show their love and support to her (but I won't tell you how, because I don't want to give anything away).

Patricia Bradly offers up a fast-paced, intense thriller with her latest novel, “Silence in the Dark,” which follows the story of Logan Point resident Bailey Adams, who is working as a teacher and missionary in dangerous, drug-impacted Mexico. Bailey is tasked with taking 4-year-old Maria Montoya home to Logan Point to visit Maria’s ailing grandparents. But on their way to the airport, major trouble arises. Thankfully Bailey runs into her ex-fiance Danny Maxwell and the mysterious Angel Guerraro who work together to help Bailey and the orphaned Maria travel safely to Logan Point. What follows is a tale filled not only with a little romance, but also with danger and mystery — drug cartels, kidnapping, murder, extortion, and a plot that leaves you guessing who the true “bad guy” is until the very end. The pacing of “Silence in the Dark” is quite fast and easy to read. Bradley always develops characters that are intriguing, fun and easy to love — including minor characters like the waitress Solana who helps save Bailey and her young charge. Even though this is a suspense thriller, “Silence in the Dark” contains many excellent, deeper themes — how we must keep faith in hard and scary times, dealing with doubt, allowing fear to have control and power in our lives, peace and joy versus fear and anxiety, questioning why God allows bad things to happen in our lives, and trusting God. Spanning between two countries, Mexico and the United States’ Mississippi, “Silence in the Dark” is another great addition to Bradley’s series. I hope we get to journey to Logan Point again!

I love a book that get's me from page one. And this one did. From the beginning to the end I was swept up! Here's what it's about . . . From the back cover . . . Bailey Adams is running for her life . . . again. When Bailey ,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. A faced paced story of suspense,mystery,romance and a little struggle with faith. This is the first book I've read by Patricia Bradley and I look forward to reading more. Especially from this series. Silence In The Dark is the 4th installment of the Logan Point Series. I had no problem keeping up or figuring out what was going on without having read the first 3. To me that makes a good book. Plus because I was pulled into the story and the characters. At the end I was left wanting more. In a good way I left wanting to read the rest of the series. It's the sign of a good book when the author keeps you guessing who the villain is. Or ads twists and turns to the plot that you least expect. Patricia Bradley does this with Silence In The Dark. Silence In The Dark deserves my 5 Star rating! Image result for 5 stars For more information visit the authors website. Click Here.

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?

With lean, fast-paced prose that will keep you turning the pages, Patricia Bradley pens a superb story of suspense and second chances. I really enjoyed reading this book. There was suspense and mystery. Just the type of book I enjoy. Bailey fears commitment. She also struggles with her commitment to God. She feels like a fraud being a missionary. She does commit to bringing a little girl back from Mexico to meet her grandparents for the first time. This is where the plot really starts getting interesting. Bailey will do everything in her power to protect Maria. Danny and Bailey run into each other in Mexico. Danny still loves Bailey and will do anything to help her escape the kidnappers. I liked that characters from the other books were brought into this one. The only negative thing I can say about the book is that I would have like a short synopsis of the gun smuggling that took place in the previous books. I have read all of them but I couldn't remember the whys and wherefores. Other than that it was a great book. You don't need to read the other Logan Point books to read this book. I would recommend this book. I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.

I have read every book in this series and I think Patricia gets better and better with each novel. This one starts with a face pace and doesn't give you much time to breath before another twist takes place. This book will also have you wondering who you can trust. I had my doubts about many characters but knew they couldn't all be bad...could they? Bailey is a sweet character who obviously has some wounds that cloud her judgement a bit. We meet Danny in a previous book so it was great to see him as a lead character in this one. If you haven't read the other books I think you could read this one and still fully enjoy it, but I highly recommend the other books. A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
