Silence in the Dark (Logan Point #4)

Title:  Silence in the Dark (Logan Point #4)

My rating is 3 stars.
Danny Maxwell is in Mexico looking for clues to the identity of a man who bought stolen rifles from the former chief financial officer of Maxwell Industries.  What he didn’t expect was to run into his former fiancée, Bailey Adams, having breakfast with his main suspect.  Upon seeing her, he wonders how she knows this guy.  Moments after talking to the couple, gunshots ring out.  His first thought is for Bailey’s safety.  She escapes the gunfire and he soon realizes he is her only hope of escape.  Can he save her and regain her affections as well?
Bailey Adams has been in Mexico almost two years teaching at a missionary school.  She sees Danny and immediately remembers her rejection of his proposal.  She knows she is good at running away from conflict as that is why she is now escorting a young student back to America to visit her grandparents.  A local shaman has taken an instant dislike to Bailey and her work to bring Christ to his small village.  He has threatened her verbally as well as with “gifts” left in her car.  She has two months left on her teaching contract and doesn’t know what she will do when it is done.  As she takes her young charge, Maria, to the restroom, she hears gunshots and her running begins again.  She soon realizes that her only hope of getting herself and Maria to the U.S. and safety is Danny.  Can she trust him with their lives?  Who is out to hurt her and Maria and why?  Where is God when she needs him most?
Overall, this was an easy story to read, but it just didn’t hold my attention well.  The story jumps from four different characters’ points of view, so readers know what is going on and leaving little to the imagination.  It also made the characters less easy to get involved with.  Therefore, the romantic aspect of the story fell flat for me.  The identity of the antagonist is easy to figure out, and Joel just left me confused as to his real character.  I did like the faith element in the story, but Bailey’s and Danny’s faith struggles were not fully developed that were too abrupt or incomplete.  The plot was solid and there were some tense moments, but I like more action to my suspense stories.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
