Pecca Gallegos moved to the tiny town of Walton, Georgia, to protect her son and escape the dangerous lifestyle that once defined her. When a series of strange circumstances evolve into threats, Pecca finds herself confiding in an unlikely ally--her stubborn patient.
Army veteran Colton Crawford is desperate to recover from the undiagnosed disorder that is ruining his life, and his instincts are on high alert when threats against his nurse and her son force him to take action. But Colton's involvement only ramps up the danger when he uncovers a family secret revealing that whoever is after Pecca is closer--and more deadly--than they realized.
With this suspenseful new story, Natalie Walters welcomes you once more to Walton, Georgia, where everyone knows your name--but no one knows your secret.
Just looking at the title and cover of this book, I was convinced that I was in for a treat and I wasn't wrong! Silent Shadows has everything that I love in a story: family bonds, suspense, romance, and laugh-out-loud humor! It also has realistic characters striving to forget their past by working to have a better future. Pecca Gallegos has a past that wasn't always pretty but she is now a loving Christian mother, a wonderful nurse, and she has a great sense of humor! It's no wonder that she immediately captures the attention of Colton Crawford, a new client at the facility where she works. Colton is dealing with a physical problem that is thought to be related to PTSD and he questions why God has allowed this. Is it possible that Pecca and her young son Maceo are what Colton needs? Will he be able to protect them if threats by an unknown person (or persons) turn to violence?
Silent Shadows is the third and final book in the Harbored Secrets series and it is a terrific way to say goodbye to the people of Walton, Georgia. Walters uses Pecca's job at the Home for Heroes to remind us that our veterans need love and support as they deal with both physical and emotional issues. Colton's attention to Maceo gives the boy a glimpse of a strong, positive male mentor and the romance between Pecca and Colton simply took my breath away. Best of all, there is a strong faith message woven throughout the story.
This Harbored Secrets series will make you glad that you visited Walton, Georgia, and you may feel sad that this is the last book of the series but you definitely won't regret reading Silent Shadows. It is great Christian romantic suspense!
