Fall for this winner April 15 2008
By Amy R. - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Barbara Freethy gives us another exciting romantic suspense novel in Silent Fall which is the followup to Silent Run.

We last met Dylan Sanders, an investigative reporter, in the book Silent Run where he helped his older brother find his girlfriend, Sarah, and their daughter, Caitlyn. Silent Fall begins with Dylan at his brother's wedding to Sarah. He is approached by an informant named Erica that he used in bringing in a senator for the murder of his wife. They take a walk and he begins to get dizzy. Erica has drugged him and he passes out and wakes up the next day not knowing what is going on. Erica is missing, he smells a setup, and he is a person of interest in her disappearance.

His only hope is Sarah's friend, Catherine, who is a psychic and has a connection to Erica as well as to Dylan. She is the only one around that can help him and he doesn't want to disturb his brother who is on his honeymoon. He doesn't really believe in her psychic abilities but is in desperate need of someone who can help solve the mystery of what is actually going on. Who is setting Dylan up? Is it his father who was a bully to him is entire life or the senator who he and Erica helped put away for his wife's murder?

Dylan and Catherine are believeable allies/partners in the journey to the truth. They knew that they had a connection to each other when they first met and along the way they fall in love. They are both wounded souls who don't know how to trust others especially in dating relationships. Catherine has nightmares from her childhood that are locked in her brain and are represented in her dark paintings. Most people see her as crazy due to her psychic abilities. Dylan grew up in a home where his father bullied him and his only ally was his older brother, Jake. His mother left him when he was a young child and he never saw her again and never forgave her for leaving him behind in this abusive home. Will they survive this ordeal in order to have the future that they both deserve with each other after all the hardship in their lives?

The answers to their past are interwined with the present day mystery. The reader is taken on a roller coaster ride with plenty of twist and turns and surprises along the way. The ending is one that you will not see coming and definitely will surprise you. You definitely don't want to miss this suspense filled winner.

Dylan's story April 1 2008
By Detra Fitch - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dylan Sanders is at Lake Tahoe, Nevada, when Erica Layton appears and demands a private conversation. Only six weeks prior the pair had spent one night in bed together and worked to put a murderer behind bars. Thinking Erica wants to discuss one of those two events, he follows her into the woods; then Erica leaves him there, drugged and disoriented. When Dylan wakes the next morning, Erica has disappeared, and Dylan is suspected of her murder.

Catherine Hilliard is a lovely psychic plagued with nightmares since a certain horrific night during her childhood. The last thing she wants is to help Dylan with her visions, especially since he does not believe in her abilities, but Catherine has somehow become a conduit and may be his only chance to stay alive in hope of proving his innocence.

***** This story begins with danger and the mad pace is continuous until the very end. I could not help but feel chills as Catherine's haunting past comes forward and I began to understand the true horror. My opinion, in a single word... SUPERB! *****

In the Sanders Brothers Series, I like this book better. This one was more exciting and more mind boggling as to who their enemies were.

Dylan's character, is more desirable, since, he did not want to be attached to anyone or to be part of a family, that makes him, sort of "hard to get". While Catherine, is the most beautiful psychic I have ever imagined. The committment of solving the mystery threw these two together, making the adventure amazing, nail-biting but full of pre-loving moments for the couple.

I rate this 4, because I do not like the way it ended so sudden. While the author had swayed the story to a different ending, it suddenly made an unexpected turn that was not at all convincing. Clues aren't too many to lead Dylan and Catherine to the real killer. They were always trapped whenever they get clues.

The adventure was AMAZING but the story did not end very nicely, however, Dylan and Catherine ended up together, romance, did turn up great.

Excellent suspense thriller April 2 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
At Woodlake Mountain Lodge in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, investigative reporter Dylan Saunders attends his brother Jake's "second" wedding with Sarah. Also there is a former lover Erica Layton, who once provided the journalist with volatile information. She asks Dylan to sneak away with her into the nearby woods, which he does.

When he awakens in the morning, he is confused by last night's events especially when he concludes he was drugged. He also is the prime suspect in the apparent disappearance of Erica. A wedding guest of the bride psychic Catherine Hilliard had a vision involving danger to Dylan and though she would prefer to stay out as she grasps the peril to herself, Catherine investigates trusting on her visions to guide her.

Following up on the suspense thriller SILENT RUN, Jake's sibling takes center stage as he finds himself in a major mess with the only hope being the stunning psychic as Dylan wants to keep Jake, Sarah, and his eighteen month old niece out of the fiasco if possible. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action with a touch of the paranormal. Dylan is fabulous as a man in peril and his reluctant rescuer Sarah's best friend is terrific. Although Dylan plays a major support role in SILENT RUN, Barbara Freethy's excellent sequel can stand alone.

Silent Fall March 24 2013
By Nan M. Jacobson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read one Barbara Freethy book and quickly downloaded a few others. They are quick easy reads, but they keep my attention when I don't feel like diving into a complicated story. I enjoy the "real people" type of characters she creates. Reading a Barbara Freethy book is like taking a peek into someone else's life and seeing all the realistic details.
