WHEN SILENCE IS ALL THAT'S LEFT, CAN THE TRUTH FINALLY BE HEARD?

Nora Grey can't remember the past five months of her life. After the initial shock of waking up in a cemetery and being told that she has been missing for weeks - with no one knowing where she was or who she was with - she tried to get her life back on track. Go to school, hang out with her best friend, Vee, and dodge mom's creepy new boyfriend.

But there is this voice in the back of her head, an idea that she can almost reach out and touch. Visions of angel wings and unearthly creatures that have nothing to do with the life she knows.

And this unshakable feeling that a part of her is missing.

Then Nora crosses paths with a sexy stranger, whom she feels a mesmerizing connection to. He seems to hold all the answers...and her heart. Every minute she spends with him grows more and more intense until she realizes she could be falling in love. Again.

I went into this book with a lot of apprehension. While I really liked Hush, Hush, Crescendo left me all kinds of pissed off. Silence really surprised me and I ended up really enjoying it.

I think mainly what was different was Nora and Patch’s relationship in this book. There is still that tension we love between them, but there’s isn’t the constant pushing away from Patch and whining about it from Nora. They actually let themselves enjoy one another and spend a few steamy scenes together in the second half of the book. Though I must say, more Patch wouldn’t have hurt anyone. Just saying.

Another thing I enjoyed was that we have some answers in this book and that Nora is actually in the know. I don’t know if it was the memory loss, but Nora acted a lot more brave and mature in this book. I was so happy to not have to see so much Marcie in this book because I totally despise her. Vee was also not around much and I didn’t find myself really missing her. Sorry, babe. I actually enjoyed Scott Parnell a lot in this book. He was cute and playful and flirty, but no worries, no love triangle surfaced from any of that.

I actually listened to the audiobook version instead of reading it because I really enjoy Caitlin Greer’s, the narrator, work with this series. If you are looking for a good series on audio, this is one you might want to check out.

I am really looking forward to what Becca Fitzpatrick has in store for us in Finale, the last book in this series. Hopefully Patch and Nora will finally get their happy ending. :)
