Goodreads:  On a quiet street, one house is burning to the ground…

By the time sign language interpreter Paige Northwood arrives, flames have engulfed her client’s home. Though Lukas is safe, his wife is still inside. But she was dead before the fire started…

Lukas signs to Paige that he knows who killed his wife. But then he goes silent – even when the police charge him with murder.

Is he guilty, or afraid? Only Paige can help him now…

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in a series that features a sign language interpreter as she always gets involved with mysterious cases where hearing impaired folks are involved.  As I said yesterday in my review, the mystery is self contained in this book, but there is so much character development for Paige from book to book that it is worth going back to book one and starting at the beginning.

So far, my favorite book of this series!  I don't know if it was the mystery or the character growth or both in this one, but I loved it from start to finish.  I really enjoyed reading about Paige's personal life and the things she went through in this book.    

For me the villain came out of left field a bit and the ending felt like it came together a little too quickly for me, but the lead up and the twists and turns made up for a swift ending.  

Without spoiling anything, I will say that I think we aren't done with three books in this series as the way this one ended, I am inclined to think there is more and as this one was my favorite, I sure hope I am right!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Ebook 2021 Challenge: 47 out of 100
