I believe Ms. Marton does a great job with taking something that is out of the box and created a very interesting story around it. I believe the characters were well developed and I love H/h that are not your typical characters. Great story and I do recommend it.
Annie is the tree hugger who does amazing things for wound soldiers getting them back to nature finding their enter self and letting them find some peace to take the next step in life. She has some wonderful point that even us who read it should be able to enjoy setting ourselves a little freer getting away from our stressful lives. It doesn’t take long for her to find out Cole is going to be a handful in so many ways. There is a very strong draw to Cole even though they do not get off to a good start she gives it her all hoping she can help him find his way to a more stress free life and less nightmares. She does play a big part in the plot with her ex stalking her could he be the one who keeps leaving things for her?
I really love the tree hugging issue Cole has he has a wonderful personality, a little off humor which is good, easy to like and oh so easy to laugh with. I enjoyed watching Annie turn the tables on him bring him out a little getting him to do things her way and how she did that is amazing and fun. I liked the budding romance the easy way it flows. The mystery of who the killer is holds your attention and keeps you guessing. The way the book opens up you are left guessing if there was a murder or just an accident. The mystery of the codes getting out I try hard to work it out but I never really made it, the author had to give me a few more clues. It was really fun watching these two run in circles around each other, their misunderstanding and watching them fall over each other but keeping their distance. Suspense is wonderful filled with a few heart stopping moments. The danger of the unknown with bodies starting to add up keeping the reader guessing. One needs to remember this plot is about finding the person who is sending the codes not so much about healing the wounded. No not everyone is helped which makes it a more believable story. Some you see getting better and leaving, others it will take more time. No Cole didn’t get all better but he was better and it did help him being there. What is important is the giving of classify information and that person being taken down along with it we learn a little more about military issues of our troops of their mind and body after going through all they have. Being a military supporter and spending time with him online I can tell the author has done her home work. The way she lays the story out with their issues of coming home, starting over, wishing it was you and not your buddy that was lost, feeling helpless and alone, from the flashbacks to the nightmares she has it to a T.
The ending leaves you with your heart in your throat waiting to see the outcome. What it boils down to is the excitement, holding you on the edge, the danger, the fear, the unknown, the mystery, humor that makes this a page turner and a wonderful start to a wonderful new series.
I found the heroine, Annie, to be refreshing and enjoyable. She didn't jump to conclusions, or speak without thinking. I loved her approach to life. Something like I might do, except without the skunks, LOL.
I liked Cole, with his vulnerability and strengths. I thought the lip reading thing was a bit convenient, but eh, stranger things have happened in real life.
The pacing was excellent, the action exciting. I did figure out who the bad guy was pretty early on, but then again I doubted myself several times, too.
Seems like I had one smallish eye roll at something... oh yeah, the whole buff guy shirtless in the hospital and the intimate scene directly after that. But it didn't do more than make me shake my head.
I do appreciate that these books have very little in the way of cursing and the intimate scenes are very mild, almost sweet. (Almost...) But still steamy.
I'm very glad I found Dana Marton. 😄
Silent Threat by Dana Marton is the first book in her Mission Recovery series. The book was a bit slow at first in how both Cole and Annie learned to trust each other as well as the type of work that Annie does at Harmony Hill. I could see a possibility of a Eco Therapist working and helping out Wounded Warriors but it did seem a bit out there. I'd give the book a 3.7 stars for suspense and romance.
Annie Murray works at Harmony Hill an alternative therapy rehab center as a Eco Therapist who loves nature and her little animal sanctuary in her garage with skunklets, donkey, and a few others. She's also agreed to help her cousin Kelly with her new home flipping business. She's dealing with not one but a second stalker who has very dark ideas of how women should act. But I think what bothered me was her grandfathers lack of love for her and her childhood trauma that her mother didn't know about. But she'll have accidents that will have Cole offering to be her bodyguard and the local police not really taking her serious. Will she be able to keep her attraction between Cole and escape from the dark stalker when he escalates?
Cole Makani Hunter is a former Navy SEAL who was sent to Harmony Hill to investigate someone leaking information to Yemen and learn how to deal with his PTSD after his team was killed by a IED. But when accidents happen to Annie he offers to be her protector even taking a shift bottle feeding the skunks. However, when his friend Trevor dies of suicide Cole seems to know its linked somehow with his investigation. Can he keep Annie safe and will she stay after he tells her of his job?

Annie is a bit of a tree hugger and has passion when it comes to her eco therapy methods but she is supportive of her patients not overbearing giving them a choice. Cole is a complex character with a horrendous back story, a real hero in my book.
This is not your normal formulaic romantic suspense novel with beautiful superhero characters that jump into bed at the drop of a hat at the expense of the story, it is well thought out and they have a chance to grow and become real. For that I applaud Dana Marton and look forward to the next book
The inter-action between the characters is very good; he won't give in, she won't give up.
This is an extremely well written story with excellent content and well worth reading
