Don’t you just love the title of this book? I can’t get enough of it. It made me want to read the description. And the description made me want to read the whole book.
The Slow Burn of Silence by Loreth Anne White
(Add me on Goodreads here!)
Rachel lives in Snowy Creek. She’s engaged to Trey, but there’s someone who wants to win her back. Jeb.
Jeb was put into prison years ago, but he claimed he was wrongly accused. Now that he’s out, he’s not going to give up until he proves he is innocent.
Jeb and Rachel were childhood sweethearts. He never got over her and he wants his life with her back. He wants the missing years and the future with her.
But tragedy hits and Rachel suddenly finds herself in parental guardianship of her deceased sister’s adopted daughter, Quinn.
How will Rachel handle Quinn? How does Trey feel about it all? What will Jeb do?
This small-town living truly takes a spin when secrets are revealed and people get hurt, physically and emotionally.
Snowy Creek residents are all affected by Jeb’s return to the town, for better and worse.
Little Quinn has every idea and no idea of what is going on around her.
Jeb. Is he innocent? Guilty? Well he’s going to have to prove it to everyone and make them believe his story.
But if Jeb didn’t commit the crime, who did? Someone else in Snowy Creek? Was Jeb framed? Who would frame him and why?
All these questions are answered by the end of this novel. Lord, was it an entertaining one.
Rachel, Jeb and Quinn are truly the three musketeers.
This book made me wonder what it would be like to live in a small, secluded town, where everyone knew everyone else’s business. I don’t think I’d like it. But I’m not positive. I feel like there’d be a lot of unnecessary drama.
I’d recommend this book if you like romances and mysteries. ❤
