Award-winning author Theresa Rizzo delivers a thrilling crime novel packed with suspense, romance, and redemption.

The Scarfilis and Donnatellis love deeply and protect fiercely. “Family takes care of family” is the code they live by.

So when a hacker threatens Gianna Donnatelli’s life, Dr. Joe Scarfili is determined to keep her safe, only he has no police or tech experience, and Gianna’s penchant for aiding Detroit’s underprivileged is the same kind of altruism that got his wife killed. Gianna protects Joe with the same unyielding resolve. 

Gianna pushes all his insecurity buttons. Joe tries her patience like no other. But together they’ll fight to save each other and their love… Or die trying.

Silent Sentry is a fast paced read that will keep the reader mesmerized till the last page. Though I do not normally read many Romantic Suspense I am glad that I read this book for it's diverse plot and completely unexpected ending.

The author does a superb job of developing her characters to be multi dimensional having both Gianna and Joe as strong primary characters. Gianna is a strong determined and highly educated woman who tries to help others while Joe saves lives as a doctor but won't get involved personally in aiding others less fortunate. One thing that bothered me about these two is that being such close family friends they had not seen each other in 10 years. A part of me felt that wasn't realistic especially since she was so close to his mother and they lived so close together.

Though there are several secondary characters with my favorite being Detective Pat, Joe's close friend. Pat could have his own story and I can only imagine how good that would be. The reader will enjoy how the author expands his character showing how he and Joe got so close thus adding another layer to the already intriguing story. Another favorite that I'd like to read his story is Gianna's brother, Paul. He comes across the pages as someone so hot he would burn the pages with his story.

My least favorite secondary character is Gianna's business partner, Faye, she just annoyed me and I really wanted to know what was her problem. For some reason I kept expecting her to be a bad guy but you will have to read the book to see if she is.

“Family takes care of family” is a critical saying for this story and you will see it play out time and time again. What I liked about this book was that it adds a twist to what could be an average story leading to an ending that will surprise the readers.

I give it 4 STARS.
