About the Book
After personal tragedy, Piper Boone retreats to her childhood home—a secluded mansion for the wealthy Boone family, who are practically American royalty. When catastrophe strikes, her family is put in the spotlight, and the line between victim and suspect gets blurred.
A forensic artist with his own haunting past.
Tucker Landry is drawn to Piper in the midst of the trauma, but the connections being made to her family might prove to be their undoing. With a hurricane beating down on the private island, there isn’t much time to find answers.
The truth will determine whether she lives or dies.
In My Opinion
Carrie Stuart Parks ventures from the left side of the US to the South Carolina low country. Relative Silence also does not focus on forensic art as much as her Gwen Marcey series did (but there’s a small element of it).
Instead, this book focuses on family and secrets and events that have pulled them apart. And, oh boy, did Piper’s family leave me appreciating my own even more. Wealth and prestige haven’t exempted her from pain and years after her most heartbreaking loss, Piper is taking life day by day.
While I had one part of the story figured out early on, there were enough questionable characters to keep me guessing who was targeting this family. Even though the story is a little far-fetched, it is engaging but I do miss the special element Parks had in her first series.
