    The second book in the Stillwater Trilogy by Brenda Novak This book begins when the first book ends Allie McCormack the chief of police's daughter is hired on at the police department Her previous job was investigating cold cases and she really wants to solve the mystery of what happened to Pastor Barker One of the people she feels knows the truth is Clay Montgomery Clay stayed on the farm after the rest of the family left and went the own waysExcellent addition and continuation of this series I will admit that it helps a lot if you read the series in order You will want to see what happens next I highly recommend this series

    The first 200 pages felt very repetitive to the prior book as well as within the same pages The cold case is just reiterating the same info over and overso I skimmed over some of the rinse and repeatThe last half was better The main problem is that there really isn't enough plot to the cold case to have it arc over 3 books

    Certainly entertaining But with a full length book I’m surprised as with this and the last book both had the insta love thing going However there was enough connection in this one it didn’t bother me as muchThough entertaining this was a tough read for me I hate injustice and the entire book is filled with it I did like the endingHowever I still don’t understand why no one calls Joe on his bullshit He broke into Clay’s house and Allie a cop doesn’t force the issue to press charges And it’s not the small town It’s the author with her own agenda ignoring the facts she’s created and ignoring them when they are inconvenient to her future plot It was bad enough when Clay and Grace ignored Joe’s assault on Grace But Allie is a cop at heart Again potential leverage was ignoredI’ll continue but not right away Certain things in this story make me not as sympathetic to Madeline than I had been I’m not sure I’ll like her story The narrator was good

    Wow I liked this one a lot 45 easyI loved the mystery end of itI adored the romantic aspects of it I got a kick out of the kidAllie was a strong smart methodical character I liked her involved in this trilogy Clay was just as intriguing and captivating if not than he was in the first book Secondary characters are colorful as everThe continuing arch of the story worked Brenda Novak writes a clear precise tale I haven’t noticed any inconsistencies that jarred the cohesive flow from book one to book two This does end with a cliffhanger but its a trilogymurder mystery from three different character’s POV so it was not only expected but needed

    I’m gonna be honest about this There has got to be something alluring about these Brenda Novak Stillwater books that is managing to keep me hooked It took every ounce of discipline I had to put the book down after two hours of straight reading before going to sleep 50% into the book I finally caved knowing that I needed to at least get enough sleep if I didn’t want to go into work sleepy or crankyIs it the storyline? The premise of the book itself doesn’t leave much mystery or surprise to be anticipated We know what the mystery is and we have an inkling about the conclusion even if we don’t know what will actually happen Well okay after reading several romantic suspense novels I’m not going to deny that everything hinges on a Happily Ever After closing each book whether or not it’s an ongoing series so we have a vague idea of how things will come out with sunshine and rainbows and happy days But I suspect that I now understand that “suspense” isn’t always dependent on “OMG Who did it?” or “Ooh what’s going to happen to our heroes?” or even “Ack What happens next?”The suspense in the Stillwater trilogy thus far is really a mixture of “How is the conclusion going to happen?” and “How are we going to get there?” and “How will life turn out for the Montgomerys and everyone else in Stillwater?” Anwyay in all honesty it takes uite of bit of care for the characters for me to start asking those uestions regardless of the fact that the plot seems uite straight forward and there probably won’t be much in terms of surprise twists Because things are still going to happen to the characters of Stillwater and Gosh Darnit I wanna know how everything plays outSo maybe I do care for the characters enough to want to know all of their fates in the end as well as how the entire scandal will handle itself by the last bookHow do the Montgomery’s manage to have their Happily Ever After? How will things turn out for the family? Will the town accept the truth? Will the siblings be able to move on? Will Mom ever learn to stop being so naive about life and face the facts of the world? Will the people of this small town forever be ignorant judgemental snobby jerks? Will Irene Montgomery ever grow a backbone and stop causing trouble for her kids? Can love conuer all? We know certain particular facts1 The reverend was a terrible monster of a human being who did terrible things to young girls including his stepdaughter 2 The Montgomerys are keeping the secret of the night the reverend died because they’re afraid of the repercussions because the town hates them already and would just end up victim blaming rather than being sympathetic 3 No matter what someone still died and truths are being hiddenSo yeah despite a lot of flashes of rage during the reading of this book mostly because a lot of the characters got on my nerves it didn’t escape my notice that I really do want to know how everything wraps up in the endIn Dead Giveaway Clay Montgomery comes closer to being imprisoned for the death of Reverend Barker despite the fact that there is no evidence to prove that the reverend is dead nor that Clay killed him And since we had already learned in the first book that the death was an accident and it had been Mommy Dearest who’d landed the executing blow we know that Clay wasn’t the one who killed the reverend But it doesn’t help that someone died and all the Montgomerys were instrumental in covering up that deathIn a nutshell not much really happens in this story aside from a lot of fingers being pointed and a lot of anger being channeled and a lot of angsty romance being presented and a lot of judgement being thrown around by people who have no idea how to be compassionate And really that’s it There’s little to add onto as a continuation of Dead Silence except for the fact that this is just a long drawn out drama with the same events occurring over and over again as the base platform for three romances to happenI’m not really complaining but I’m also not really all that excited about it all I just want to know how everything endsAnd I’m also ready to be rid of a lot of the Stillwater townspeople They piss me off a great deal As I’d mentioned about the first book I cared very little for most of the characters in the book and in this series in general Clay is thus far one of the few I actually like Allie’s not so bad either and if only Grace would grow of a backboneIrene got on my last nerve since all she ever did was cry and complain and cause trouble despite knowing how crucial it was for her to stay out of trouble Madeline I don’t know I understand her need to find out what happened to her father but her persistence sometimes bordered on a child’s obsession But then again she doesn’t know what the reader knows and so she wouldn’t understand why her constant persistence in investigating her father’s disappearance comes across as troublesomeI’m half looking forward to finishing the series in Madeline’s perspective mainly to see how she ends up handling the truth of her father But I haven’t grown to like her through the first two books and find her kind of annoying so I’m hoping that the last book will give me a chance to get to know her better
