SILENT LITTLE WITNESS
Determined to question the ex-wife of a murder suspect, homicide detective Miles Callahan arrives just in time to save her and her daughter from a shooter. Leaving the scene of a crime goes against his training, but protecting Paige Olson and the little girl is more important than following the rules.
But now, on the run with mother and child, Miles must figure out what happened to Paige's ex-husband…and why young Abby won't say a word. Her usually talkative child's silence has Paige worried.
Is it possible she witnessed something while video chatting with her dad? If only they can convince the little girl to talk, then they might just break the case wide-open…and stop the killer who's stalking them at every turn.
I enjoyed the constant, deadly, fierce action that kept detective Miles Callahan on the run with Paige Olson and her little daughter Abby.
This story just mesmerized my mind and the attacks that just kept coming at them, no matter how well they hid from the culprits chasing them, left me breathless and made it impossible to even think about putting the book down until the case was closed.
The characters are stellar in the story. Miles with his protectiveness and take charge attitude kept Paige and Abby physically safe, and with his kindness and tender caring made them feel secure as well. He won even Abby over, no matter of the trauma she had suffered, the connection between the little girl and Miles was endearing.
Paige is a strong woman, she has learned to survive on her own, relying only on God's guidance and providence, but Miles gets through her shields and walls with his honesty, sincerity, and willingness to share his hurts from the past and the struggles with his faith in God. I loved that they prayed together, often and genuinely asking for God's protection as they run for their lives.
The charming Callahan family, with their willingness to help and support the others, has won me over. The interactions between the siblings are delightful, and I am curious to find out about the destiny of the other family members.
Laura Scott writes amazing suspense and action filled stories, where the characters battle not only with the criminals but with their future and their faith in God. The characters are solid and alluring, the romance is believable and sweet. Her books are a great balance between amiable and gloomy, and never had let me down with the intensity of the crimes and action or the tenderness of the courtship. Yes, I am enthralled!
