Justice comes easy for these two. But forgiveness? That’s another matter altogether.
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 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 . . .
Don’t Keep Silent by Elizabeth Goddard is about a missing woman and the dangers of finding her. Her sister-in-law uses her investigative powers to search for the woman. But it leads her back to a man who risked his life for her once before and now, she’s asking for his help. He rejects her plea and sends her away. However, Liam can’t stand the feeling of seeing the woman he cares about getting herself killed. He decides to help her after all. Danger and suspense escalate quickly in this romantic suspense.
I liked the characters. Liam is the tough man whose ego and heart felt bruised by a woman. He feels hurt and tries to ignore the pain. However, being the good man he is, he can’t ignore his feelings of doing what’s right. Then, there’s also the pull he still feels towards the troublesome reporter. Next, is the female protagonist. Rae wants to get the investigator’s top award just like father. She wants to make him proud and find her missing sister-in-law. Things get personal and complicated in this tale.
Don’t Keep Silent is an intriguing read. I was entertained by Elizabeth Goddard and the chase the characters took. The plot and story were good. To me, it was a bit slower than the usual books from this talented writer. Overall, it was still a worthy read. Everything was clean and intense.
