Review: Vows of Silence by Debra Webb

Title: Vows of Silence
Author: Debra Webb

Read copy: eBook (Kindle)
Published: November 1, 2016
Publisher: Harlequin

Lacy, Cassidy, Kira and Melinda are friends bound by a deadly secret. One of them is a killer. At least that's what each one suspects. Ten years ago, Melinda's abusive husband, Charles Ashland, was murdered. The gun was Lacy's. But it didn't matter. Together, the women disposed of the body, which has never been found…until now. The powerful Ashland family, whose patriarch is poised for the vice presidency, wants justice.

Cassidy, an attorney, insists the women have nothing to fear. Then she is killed. A midnight caller is stalking the remaining friends, taunting them that he knows the truth. And the truth is something police chief Rick Summers is quite interested in learning from Lacy, despite the wild chemistry that's causing havoc with his judgment. Another death delivers a chilling new warning, for the price they've paid for their vow of silence has been murder.

My rating:


Every single character acted like an idiot...If you don't want people to suspect, don't act like you have something to hide. Simple. If you want to know who of your friends (BTW, with such friends, who needs enemies?) killed the guy, ask, don't just assume, and do find out who did it, before you go stupid and dispose of the body. And if a sexy cop, who you know has been crushing on you since high-school, offers his help, take it.
But no, let's all act like idiots, let's suspect each other, which will only get us killed one by one.

I have no idea how I made it through this mess of a story. The only redeeming quality was the suspense, and even that one was ruined by the end of it with the killer not actually being the killer, and the real killer not actually meaning to kill.

It was all over the place. And I hated it.
