Synopsis: Eighteen-year-old Laken Sumner has just escaped from a stranger and a pack of wolves in the dark rain on a lonely mountain road. Normally, with her ability to communicate with wild animals, who can understand her thoughts, she wouldn’t worry about encountering the predators. But these wolves didn’t respond to her. She tries to shrug it off, afraid to reveal her fears to Noah, her boyfriend and the deputy sheriff.
But that’s not all she’s hiding. Drawn to Xander Payne, like a moth to a flame, she warns herself to stay away from him. She’s convinced he knows something, and she doesn’t trust him. Besides, Noah is the one she really wants…if only she could be sure of that.
When disaster strikes and Laken is forced to confess her secret to Noah, her worst fears are realized as he drifts away from her. Xander is more than willing to step into Noah’s shoes with Laken, but she refuses to give in to her feelings for him. Because Noah will be back, won’t he?
Review: SILENCE AT MIDNIGHT is the second book in the serial Sunset Trilogy featuring Laken Sumner, a girl with a very special gift. After a huge scare from a strange man and an unknown pack of wolves, Laken tries to forget about the new strangeness in town. She’s trying to enjoy her new relationship with Noah and work on her history project with Xander. SILENCE AT MIDNIGHT builds on the characters we met in SHADOWS AT SUNSET and draws readers deeper into Laken’s world. Allegiances change and doubts creep in about who can be trusted and who is out to cause trouble. SILENCE AT MIDNIGHT is well-written, exposing new and dangerous secrets in this small New England town. I am looking forward to seeing how everything turns out for Laken.
