Silent Sentry - Theresa Rizzo

4 Stars

Dr. Joe Scarfili runs. He’s a runner. It’s how he copes with emotional pain.

When his wife was murdered, he ran from violent Detroit to insular Grosse Pointe. He ran from his smothering, caring family to long hours in the operating room. But when he falls for Gianna, another run could cost him everything.

Nurse and entrepreneur Gianna Donnatelli is on the verge of making her dreams come true. Her company is poised to go public with a product guaranteed to revolutionize medical care and at the same time help revitalize Detroit, only she’s attacked, stalked, and flattened by an explosion. Then the danger escalates.

With Gianna’s life at stake, Joe can’t run. Despite the fact that he has no police or tech experience… Despite the fact that Gianna’s penchant for aiding Detroit’s underprivileged is the same kind of altruism that got his wife killed… Despite the fact that Gianna pushes all his insecurity buttons… This time, Joe will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

And Gianna protects those she loves just as fiercely. Together they’ll fight to save each other and their love... Or die trying.

This is a great action packed suspense. It started  out a little slow for me and took me a while to get into it and to warm up to the characters, but as the story progressed I enjoyed it more and more. The story did start to get very suspenseful towards the middle. This one is definitely not lacking is twists and turns! Theresa does a very good job of keeping you waiting on the edge of your seat to find out what happens till the end!

As far as the romance - it was there but I never really felt it. It just seemed very generic to me, not very romantic. I liked the characters (didn't love them) I guess I just didn't like them together. I liked them better as friends than  lovers.

I did love her descriptions! This was excellent. Especially when it came to Gianna's neighborhood! This was great, I could really picture everything. It reminded me a lot of a couple of the neighborhoods around here! LOL (not good!)

This is my third book by Theresa. I am sure it won't be my last. I love that all her books have some medical twist to them. She is a good solid writer - in anything she chooses to do!

Thank you Theresa for sending me a copy of your book for my honest review!
