    3.5 starsFirst of all, I think it is important to note this story involves sexual crimes It s big element of the story so if that is a topic that you try to avoid reading about, I suggest you take a pass on this book While I wouldn t say this goes into the most graphic detail I have ever read, it still was disturbing and a lot to mentally process I read mysteries and thrillers all the time and I would put it in the compelling but tough read category.Crime reporter Sawyer Brooks has tried to leave the past behind her but some things stay with you forever She has never forgotten that her older sisters left her behind as they fled their hometown of River Rock, and she was left alone to endure horrific abuse Two teenage girls were murdered in River Rock and their cases remain unsolved Sawyer s childhood friend went missing and again, the case remains unsolved While Sawyer has kept her distance from the town she grew up in, she is back hoping to find answers as to what happened to these girls What will she discover The story held my interest as there certainly was lot going on and Sawyer was a solid lead character The story does bounce around occasionally to other characters and in some cases I thought it worked well having different perspectives but in others it didn t feel necessary in order to advance the plot I feel the author might have been too ambitious in her storytelling as it becomes a bit much in terms of how much feels realistic when you add everything up together I also thought the plot that kicks off the book started off promising but veered into bad Lifetime movie territory In general, some elements of the story needed to be fully fleshed out or abandoned completely A few less characters might have also helped as it is never a good thing when you are near the end of a book and a character pops up and you struggle to remember who they are.With that being said, I did like this book even though it wasn t a perfect read In terms of the mystery elements, there was nothing really here that I found surprising but I also read the genre often and it s difficult to catch me completely off guard I m curious to see what is in store for Sawyer as this appears to be the first book in a series If you can handle tough subject material, this is a decent pick.

    Don t Make a Sound is a gripping, suspenseful thriller following three sisters Sawyer, Aria and Harper who have disturbing and horrific pasts but are doing their best to cope with their trauma while attempting to live somewhat normal lives That is until their grandmother passes away and Sawyer a newly promoted crime investigative reporter in Sacramento travels back home to their small town of River Rock which also has a dark, menacing history two young girls were mysteriously murdered and one girl, Sawyer s childhood friend Rebecca, disappeared While only planning on staying home for a few days to attend her grandmother s funeral, Sawyer s visit gets extended unexpectedly when there s suddenly another murder of a 16 year old girl Meanwhile, back in Sacramento, a secret, online group of vengeful, victimized women who all have been tragically abused in various ways team up to seek revenge on the men who have brutalized them Don t Make a Sound is a book about revenge and the horrific, disturbing ways that women are abused by men but how by working together, they can seek the justice that they deserve but also revealing the sobering truth that while revenge is cathartic, that in and of itself is not enough to heal old wounds.I could not put this book down If it weren t for other obligations, I could have easily finished Don t Make a Sound in a day I was completely consumed with both Sawyer s story as she visits her old town of River Rock while also thrilled by the group of women seeking revenge on the men who had abused each of them The author, T.R Ragan, did an excellent job with both the character development and also the dialogue I ve read a lot of thrillers and I often find that I m not hugely invested in the characters That was not the case with this book In many ways, this book was so cathartic Guiltily, I loved reading how the women got revenge on the men who had harmed them but I must admit that this book also deeply disturbed me in ways that I won t articulate to avoid spoilers.My only criticism of the book is that I think certain things could have been removed there was just a lot going on There s the original murder case in Sacramento, there s the two unsolved murder cases in River Rock, there s the story of the three sisters dark past, there s the new murder and there s a love interest not to mention the revenge group I m still happy with my five star rating but I think trimming a few of the details down a little bit wouldn t have hurt the book in any way and I think could have made the ending potent without trying to wrap up the various, non essential story lines.All in all, I loved Don t Make a Sound It was extremely thrilling, dark and disturbing plus it had awesome character development and really made me care about what happened to the three sisters I will say, admit this book might be difficult to read if you are triggered by violent or sexual and especially domestic abuse but if not and if you really enjoy gritty thrillers you re sure to love this one as well
