Don't Keep Silent by Elizabeth Goddard {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 




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.

Don't Keep Silent is the third book in Elizabeth Goddard's Uncommon Justice series. Having read the previous two books in the series, there were certainly some familiar people and places known from the previous books and I'd highly recommend the series as a whole... but this could certainly be read as a stand alone too.

In Don't Keep Silent we get a closer look into the life of another McKade brother, Liam. When we meet Liam, he's searching for his direction after having left the DEA. When Rae's sister in law goes missing, she brings him in to help. Of course, there's a romance there that I really enjoyed seeing play out... but the action really took the lead in this story! Every turn of the page seemed to reveal something else and I couldn't put it down, trying to figure out how it all went together. There were many twists and turns throughout that really kept me guessing right through to the end. You really never quite were sure who to trust. These are often my favorite type of suspense stories. Elizabeth Goddard did a wonderful job of crafting this story to keep the reader involved right through to the end.

As a Christian romantic suspense, there is certainly some mention of faith and prayer but I felt it was very subtle in this story--- characters displaying very natural shows of faith (prayer, etc) as they would in life. As such, it could possibly appeal to those who just enjoy a good clean read as well. And that it certainly is. Though it deals with topics like human trafficking, it is still clean and free of language.

While I must admit that I did prefer the other books in this series better, this was still a fantastic read and a great addition to the series. Fans of romantic suspense are sure to enjoy this one!
