WHEN SILENCE FALLS
Piper Sinclair is terrified when an armed man barges into a seminar she's attending and kidnaps a woman. Then more ominous things start happening, and Piper realizes that she might be a crazed person's target. Luckily, part-time deputy Cade Macalister is watching out for her, and she and Cade grow closer as they attempt to discover who might want to harm her. When Silence Falls (2), by Shirlee McCoy, has a faith-filled story. However, Piper's inability to stand up and be an independent adult in response to her brother's overprotective behavior is both grating and demeaning to women.
