She finds the small town unchanged….the perfect, charming quiet, slow-paced and safe place, where everyone knows each other…a sense of peace… as she knew it from all those years ago… Feeling consumed by sadness and guilt for her reason for leaving and not being back to see her family, she finds comfort in the arms of the Stevens family, who were very close to her family and the one twin son, Matt, that she had a relationship before leaving town. But the perfect picture of Cypress Springs and the Stevens family is a deceptive one. Also she begins to question the manner of which her father died. And when she starts looking deeper into his death, she discovers that there are things in this town that aren’t what they seem to be. Great plot that moves at a good pace, keeping you turning the pages. Taut, suspenseful, danger, obsession, jealousy, family secrets, betrayals, diabolical killer and what can happen when people take judgments into their own hands. Good character development. Despite having a few suspects of my own, I was totally surprised when I discovered who the killer/s are…the many turns and twists just never gave it away!!!! Another good book by Erica Spindler.

    Mike Musings Book Reviews

    This book was highly recommended by a friend. It was with some trepidation I began reading it, as it was categorised as romance, despite the thriller-crime element. Unfortunately, it failed to deliver on the first genre and was okay in regards to the latter. The protagonist was not the strong female I expected and the plot was somewhat apparent despite the twist at the end. Disappointing, so only a two-star rating.

    I loved this book ! How it was predictable and then something happens that makes you second guess yourself to where it's unpredictable. If you want a thriller and romance with a huge twist this is the PERFECT book. I loved this book !

Once there, she's amazed to see how nothing seems to have changed. Her old friends welcome her back with open arms, and the town's seemingly peaceful existence appeals to her. What is the price of this perfection? Rumor has it that years ago a council of citizens, called the Seven, used drastic measures to clean up the town, but now several people have disappeared or been killed in suspicious ways. Have the Seven returned? After Avery discovers her father kept a shoebox box filled with newspaper stories of the murders, her investigative instincts kick in. Why did he keep them? Was he one of the original Seven? Soon she is joined in her search by Gwen Lancaster, whose brother is missing. She becomes involved again with the twin brothers who used to be her best friends, one who she planned to spend the rest of her life with until their paths diverged, and one who is now the black sheep of the family. There are quite a few twists and turns along the way. There's plenty of action and the suspense remains pretty high. While parts are somewhat predictable, there are plenty of surprises. Some of the characters were well done, even though I found Avery to be a bit of a pill. Her character made so many rash choices and refused to hear anything that criticized the town or her long time friends. However, it was still an enjoyable thriller and I would try another Erica Spindler book in the future.

    This was a pretty good book- twists and turns and times where you think you have gotten it all figured out, only for another twist to come. The only reason I gave 3 stars instead of 4 is because I felt like some of the events were implausible- without giving anything away, there were a few times where she came to a conclusion about something that I don't think the average person would have. Overall a good read and one where the ending provides a creepy surprise!

    Avery Chauvin is an investigative reporter who must return to her hometown to bury her father. He was the town physician and a respected pillar of the community. Now, she learns, he has committed suicide. If only she had taken the time to pick up the phone when he called her the last time. But she just couldn’t take the time. She had to do an interview for an investigation she was working on and she couldn’t miss out on the opportunity.

He was the town physician and a respected pillar of the community. Now, she learns, he has committed suicide. If only she had taken the time to pick up the phone when he called her the last time. But she just couldn’t take the time. She had to do an interview for an investigation she was working on and she couldn’t miss out on the opportunity. If only she had taken his call instead of letting it go to the answering machine. Maybe she could have talked him out of the suicide. His message said he needed to talk to her. When she returns to Cypress Springs, LA after an absence of 12 years, she is amazed that almost nothing has changed. Her old boyfriend has become the sheriff. His family wraps her in the love and warmth that she needs so much. Her mother has only been dead a year, and now her dad is gone too. But things are not what they appear in this seemly “perfect” small town. After meeting Gwen Lancaster, she learns that Gwen believes Avery’s father was murdered. It rings true to Avery since she just can’t accept the fact that her father would do such a thing. When Gwen tells her that her own brother is missing because he was investigating a vigilante group who keeps the town people in line by killing those with unacceptable behavior, Avery thinks she is simply out of her mind with grief. But when Avery begins to get “crank,” phone calls, she wonders what’s really going on and her investigative instincts force her to begin to look for answers. The author has developed a mystery that keeps you involved trying to uncover the town’s hidden secrets and to untangle the relationships of the characters. The pages fly by and you will be amazed to see how much you have read when you are finally forced to stop reading, temporarily, due to the interference of your day-to-day reality.

But she was forced to go back to her town Cypress Springs upon a sudden demise of her closed one. Little did she knew that the return trip would be devastating! Yea, some may feel the premise seems cliched and rather common in crime-thrillers. I had the same notion. But as I went on reading, I knew it was something distinct. An intense page turner, 'In Silence' makes you want to finish the book in a single sitting. The best part of the book are the characters. They were so well developed that you could feel them alive. The small town premise was perfectly depicted. Overall a great read and an underrated one I must say Highly Recommended!!

    I've enjoyed a number of other Erica Spindler books but this one was flat. My main gripe with it is the wishy-washy main character who appears so weak and mindless you feel like slapping her. It's pretty obvious to the reader what's going but not to our heroine who lets herself be led down the 'garden path' by her purported loving friends who, naturally, all have DARK secrets. They treat her like a moron and she takes it. Having said that I read it all to the predictable face-off at the end. Unbe I've enjoyed a number of other Erica Spindler books but this one was flat.

Little has changed since her absence and she is welcomed back with open arms by former friends, neighbors and her high school boyfriend. After awhile it becomes apparent that all is not as it appears. Spindler has filled her story with false starts, twists and turns and a very believable premise and caught my interest from the first page.

    I particularly liked this story as it moved/and flowed very well with interesting characters and lots of secrets. Our curious heroine returning home to resolve her dad's suicide and estate, etc. and hence a deluded mystery to follow. A twist right after another keeps the reader guessing to near the end. Very very good story. I particularly liked this story as it moved/and flowed very well with interesting characters and lots of secrets.
