The Slow Burn of Silence by Loreth Anne White ~ #Mystery #BookReview

22379076Although I didn’t realize it when I started reading this book, it’s the second novel I’ve read by author Loreth Anne White. Both were free Kindle downloads. Both would fall under the category of romantic suspense. And both were really good.

I’m not a huge fan of the romance, and felt this book would have been better with a bit less of ‘those’ scenes, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I raced through the pages like there was a cookie waiting for me at the end.

Well developed characters, good writing and dialogue, perfect pacing, suspense that makes your toes curl . . . what more can you ask for? It doesn’t feel ‘formula’, but I’m sure this author has one – and it works. The blurb on the back cover may have been a bit cheesy; it made me pass over this selection multiple times when choosing my next book to read, but I’m glad I gave it a chance. 5 stars!
