    Surprising Twists!

    Vow of Silence Melynda Price Vow of Silence is a romantic mystery from author, Melynda Price. Detective Josiah “Joe” Troyer was raised Amish but was shunned by the community when he left to live in English “non-Amish” society. He’s forced into heading the investigation of the murders of three Amish teen girls. Hannah Adams is the sister of the third victim, Cassandra Belier, and Joe’s former girlfriend. Because Joe left Hannah with seemingly no reason, the tension is very high between them. They try to ignore it, because Joe needs her help communicating with the families of the murdered girls. The Amish are not allowed to interact with Josiah “Joe” because of his shunning, which makes it difficult for him to fully investigate the murders. Joe and Hannah are battling the danger posed by a killer along with the danger posed by their desires. Vow of Silence is a true mystery. The plot twists are surprising. The characterization is excellent. Price’s writing style is fresh, and the dialogue draws you in and holds your attention. This novel is engaging and enjoyable. I give it 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to all fans of the mystery genre. Be aware that there is explicit language and sexual content that might be offensive to some readers. My thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

    Well written romantic suspense

    Vow of Silence is a romantic suspense that has a lot of depth, mystery, suspense, and a romance I actually liked reading about. This isn't always the case with romantic suspense for me, and I'm really impressed with Melynda Price's work! Part of what made me want to read this was the setting of this book. It's set in the Amish world, and I had my fingers crossed it would be deeply researched and realistic feeling. Melynda Price clearly knows the Amish culture well. I loved reading about their views on the world, and it was immersive for me as a reader. Josiah and Hannah are fantastic characters. Josiah left the Amish culture, but he is a good and honorable man. Hannah is strong, loves her family and her faith, and feels conflicted because she wants more than she is being told she can. I love their deep connection. This is a romance worth reading about. They had a lot of battles to overcome, from the disapproval of Hannah's community to the killer on the loose. Speaking of the killer, the mystery in this novel is fantastic. I could not figure out who it was until it was revealed. I think that's another testament to Melynda Price's writing skills. If you enjoy well-written romantic suspense, give Vow of Silence a go! *I read Vow of Silence for a blog tour with Xpresso Book Tours. All opinions are my own.*

    Excellent story of romance and suspense!

    I’ve been a fan of Melynda Price’s novels from the start, and have found them all to be incredibly good. Her characters always have depth to them, which engages the reader from the start. I’ve finished each book anxiously awaiting her next one to come out. So I was super excited to read Vow of Silence as an ARC from Net Galley. This story is one of the very best I’ve read (noting that Price has yet to disappoint me with any of her stories.) This book is a well-written “who done it” that keeps you guessing right up to the end, wrapped up with an underlying love story that builds to a steamy romance that makes a reader’s heart soar. Homicide Detective Joe (Josiah) Troyer returns to his Amish community to find a serial killer, but that is not the only thing he’ll be facing. I loved the scene where he and his lost love Hannah Beiler see each other for the first time in eight years. Eight years that have hardened Josiah from the farm boy she knew to the sexy, big city detective he has become. But the attraction is still there, and very real. It builds throughout the story, intertwined with the hunt to stop a killer that comes to an end in a climax you don’t see coming. This book is an excellent read at every level.

    Suspenseful second-chance romance.

    Vow of Silence is a suspenseful second-chance romance. This book is about Homicide Detective Josiah (Joe) and his first and only love Hannah. Joe has Amish roots but left the community eight years ago, which also resulted in breaking Hannah's heart. He is now back because there is a serial killer hunting and murdering young Amish girls, and Joe is put on the case because he is familiar with the community. I think the author did a great job in making me understand and feel the love between the two main characters. The short flashbacks were a great addition to the story, and helped me in understanding the dynamic of their relationship. I also loved that the POV of the serial killer was included, it increased the suspense, and helped me in my quest in figuring out who he was. Which wasn't easy by the way, and I changed my mind a couple of times. There were many suspicious people in this book. Overall I think Vow of Silence was a great romantic suspense/second-chance romance. It was easy to read and unpredictable, and the characters were very likable. The story had a great flow, and towards the end it really hooked me, and I couldn't put it down. I loved seeing Joe and Hannah grow closer again, and there was a very strong attraction between them. The sex scenes were hot and I enjoyed seeing Hannah explore her newly found sexuality. Joe made her feel safe enough to try new things and be free. I really wish this book was part of a series, because I don't want to say goodbye to these characters.
