This audiobook was a surprise to me at how much I enjoyed it! The heroine is a quirky, Earth mother type who is working as a therapist at a rehab center for soldiers with PTSD. She also has a bunch of animals she takes care of who have been injured or abandoned. One of my favorite scenes is when she has to “go feed the babies” while the hero tags along and he realizes that it’s a bunch of baby skunks! The hero is really at the rehab center on assignment trying to find a traitor, but he attends the therapy sessions too. He starts to really fall for her, but she’s worried that because he’s a patient at the rehab center it would be unethical ( even though she doesn’t work with him ). Throw in a crazy stalker and the story was so entertaining I listened to it all day in order to finish it. Narration was very well done too.

This review is a first for me… It's the first time that I've reviewed a book that I switched back and forth between listening to the audio version and reading the Kindle version. Whispersync really is pretty cool.
I loved this book – while I was reading it – so 5 stars for Dana Marton's writing; it's what I've come to expect of her books. Descriptive prose, a strong male lead and a strong female lead, although not someone who is physically strong.
I'm sorry to say that I didn't enjoy listening to this story very much. When I switched to audio my attention drifted from the book and I had to go back and read the part I'd just listened to. I can't really put my finger on it but I think I would have enjoyed this story more if the narrator had been male instead of female. I think the voice was almost too soothing. When reading the story, in my mind the story felt more suspenseful and I kind of fell in love with Cole. Hearing his words in a deep female voice just didn't really work for me that well. So, I have to give the narrator 3 stars.
I think the story starts out in kind of an unusual way – describing what happened to someone an hour before he died. I was a tiny bit confused at first but loved the way it ended up making sense later in the story. I also think that Dana did a great job of hiding the identity of the villain until she wanted us to know who it was.
The story had my heart pounding in places, breaking in others and ultimately brought it all together. Silent Threat was a thoroughly satisfying and enjoyable story to read. I'm happy to know that there will be another book in this series.
A review copy of the ebook was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.
