Relative Silence by Carrie Stuart Parks ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Money, privilege, and a picture perfect life isn’t what it seems.

Piper lost her daughter Dove in a tragic accident 15 years ago. Now in the present she is still putting together the pieces of her life, living on her family’s island. Attempts on her life send her looking for answers, with the help of a forensic detective, Tucker, who helps her ask the right questions.

A family drama based thriller, filled with secrets, and deadly ambitions. There was a lot going on and a lot to unpack as secrets are revealed, and tensions are high. I liked how Tucker is a friend to Piper giving her a safe space and person to bounce ideas off of, as well as a voice of faith and reason. This was a difficult read for me, because I didn’t like Piper’s family and how their dynamics play out throughout the course of the book.

I thought that Piper’s love for classic movies was a fun addition, as she compares things to scenarios on film or quotes her favorite movies. And I loved her passion for animals.

In the end, while this book had an engaging plot and a lot of good things going for it, I personally found it to be unsatisfying, plus it was hard to relate their lavish lifestyle. And by the time I had turned the last page down I felt like I still had some questions. So in conclusion this book just wasn’t a good fit for my tastes, I have read other books by this author that I enjoyed, and I will definitely read others by her in the future, but this one just wasn’t for me. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
