“Dread warred with hope as Rae Burke shivered in the cold outside on the porch.”Opening line of “Don’t Keep Silent” by Elizabeth Goddard
“Don’t Keep Silent”, by Elizabeth Goddard, is a continuation of the Uncommon Justice series following on from the previous two books. It focuses on Liam McKade, the last of the three brothers in this series. You don’t need to have read the other two books but I loved them so I’d recommend it!
Liam is the quiet and opaque brother. He is highly trained having been in the military and the DEA. I enjoyed being inside his head and getting his perspective on his family, the town and the investigation. He is deeply loyal and intelligent but his patience is tested when he runs into Rae Burke, the investigative reporter who used him, blew his cover and broke his heart.
Rae is passionate, determined, impulsive and scared. The combination drives her to seek Liam out, despite their history, to help her hunt for missing sister-in-law . Liam realises the only way to prevent harm coming to Rae is to help her and the two find themselves in the midst of a situation far more sinister and wide-reaching than either anticipated.
As in the previous two novels, the mystery is intriguing, complex and surprising. It kept me guessing to the end! Suspenseful, I found the pages flying by, eager to read what would happen yet. The supporting characters are well-rounded and interesting, they add substantially to the realism of the story.
Both Rae and Liam have a deep faith in God in spite of the difficult circumstances and the dark underworld they have both fought to expose.
The whole series is a delight to read if you enjoy suspense romance! I loved it, it’s a five out of five on the enJOYment scale.
From the back cover:
Investigative reporter Rae Burke will do anything to find her missing sister-in-law, even if it means facing Liam McKade, a man who almost lost his life saving hers. A former DEA agent, Liam thought he could find peace at his Wyoming ranch, but he just doesn’t feel at home anywhere anymore. When the reporter who blew his cover on an important investigation inserts herself back into his life, he’s less than thrilled. But Rae’s keen investigative skills have led her down the right path–and directly into the dragon’s mouth–leaving Liam no choice but to protect her. As the danger increases, the past they both tried to flee catches up to them, along with the feelings they once had for each other.
Bestselling and award-winning author Elizabeth Goddard plunges you into a fast-paced, high-stakes story of honor, forgiveness, and justice.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Revell through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
