    One thought on “Silent Sabotage”

    1. Ooooeeeeeeeee, but I really love this series. This is the fifth book but reads fine as a standalone. However, one of the real charms of these books is how the author manages to include the First Responder gang in each story. There's such great camaraderie between them. Love all the teasing but they have a serious side too and they'll drop anything to help when one of their own is in trouble. What a great backdrop for romantic suspense. And speaking of that -- what a gnarly mess Emily and Archer [...]

    2. Susan Sleeman has done it again!Silent Sabotage book reviewSilent Sabotage, the latest book in her stellar First Responders series, starts out with a scream and a shooting spree and a hostage situation complete with a bomb vest. That’s like… all in the first few pages. And in typical Susan Sleeman style, the action and the tension don’t let up until nearly the very end. I always feel a bit sorry for her characters when I start one of Susan’s books because, while I know I personally am ge [...]

    3. This story starts off with a bang—literally! Emily Graves finds herself the victim of a hostage situation, a bomb vest being strapped on to her and desperate negotiations from Deputy Archer Reed—who just happens to be in the right place at the right time. If that doesn’t whet your appetite for a great suspense, I don’t know what will! This story quickly moved me along, always trying to figure out who’s after Emily; and just when I think I got it, the author throws in another twist to m [...]

    4. 3.5 starsMost of it was four stars, but the reveal was a bit flaky for me. (view spoiler)[ I'm not fond of info dump from villain types of denouements, and this one wasn't explained enough to make me quite believe it would happen. (hide spoiler)]I liked the main characters, especially Birdie, and have an interest in old homes and bed and breakfasts, so that added to my enjoyment.

    5. This is another fantastic suspense novel!Though all of the members of the FRS are present and helping out in this book the story itself is a stand-alone suspense. It is fun to catch up on the private lives of the main characters from the previous books.After meeting Archer Reed in the earlier books in this series I was very happy to find out more about him. I found Emily Graves to be a wonderfully well-developed character and well suited to Archer. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how the two of them [...]

    6. SILENT SABOTAGE is the fifth book in Ms. Sleeman's First Responder series, but it easily stands alone. I enjoyed getting to know Emily and Archer. Archer is a sweetie, strong and courageous and he knows when to take control and when to step back and leave Emily alone--usually. Emily is prickly and wants to be in control of her own life. She doesn't appreciate Archer taking control even when it's for her own safety. I understand why once it's revealed, but until then it kind of grated on me. I di [...]

    7. This 5th book in Susan Sleeman's 'First Responder' series is again top notch! She knows her suspense. Emily Graves is trying to save her aunt's B&B from going under, but someone is trying to kill her, it seems. Archer Reed, sheriff's deputy, is determined that the would be murderer will not succeed. Sleeman has created believable characters in a lovely setting in the Pacific Northwest. I enjoyed it as I did the others before it and I had no clue of the culprit's identity until the very end!I [...]

    8. Not a huge fan of this one. Emily was way too stubborn, even for this type of book. She also was way too irrationally hung up on her mom and issues with men. The constant rehashing was so annoying. Again, the plot device of kissing in the heat of the moment. Someone shoot at you, out there somewhere trying to kill you but let's sit here and kiss. Also, oddly enough Darcie's personality was really pushy in this book. I wanted her to butt out more.

    9. This book wasn't just bad in any conventional sense conveyed by the phrase, "I didn't really like this book". Because, you see, this book was spectacularly, and ultimately, humorously horrible. Perhaps it achieved that rarefied state of fiction in which the writing and story are so astoundingly awful that it becomes somewhat fun to read just like watching a 1950s guy-in-a-plastic-costume-monster movie is fun to watch. Fellow Good Readers, this book was bad. So why did I read it? Well, I found it [...]

    10. I loved the book! It had lots of mystery, suspense, bad guys, good guys, unexpected happenings, and real life struggles that ordinary people can relate to. Emily was very reliable for her aunt even though they were going through a rough patch. The people that surrounded Emily and her aunt were very supportive of them and their situation. Even though it was very tough for Emily to accept the help of her friends she was finally able to do so in order to save the B&B and help her aunt at the sa [...]

    11. All Emily Graves wants to do is keep her Aunt Birdie's Bed and Breakfast afloat and take care of Birdie as her memory declines. But one accident after another threatens to close the B&B down. Archer Reed happens to be on the scene when a gunman starts shooting in a local mall. Preventing the man from killing Emily, Archer is concerned when the gunman threatens that there are others out to kill Emily. Emily knows she can never trust a man. After watching her mother go from one man to another [...]

    12. Emily left her job and moved back home to help her aunt with her bed-and-breakfast. Her aunt is showing signs of dementia and Emily will do anything for the woman who took her in as a child.

    13. Silent Sabotage by Susan Sleeman is a Love Inspired Suspense book. This book is riveting from the beginning to the very end. This is a fast paced page turning book that will surly keep you glued to your sear the entire time. This story is packed with love, faith, determination, action and twists & turns. Be sure to order your copy of Silent Sabotage today. I received a complementary copy of this book. This review is my honest opinion. 5 stars!

    14. Maybe as much as 3 1/2. It started out well, even funny, and the female protagonist was strong. However, it was too wordy, especially toward the end, and the "faith part of the novel was too "in-your-face."

    15. Great story This my first time reading this author's book. Loved the suspense that was created. Who doesn't love a good who done it book? I look forward to reading some of Ms. Susan Sleeman other books.

    18. A killer is closer than they thinkI've been looking forward to Silent Sabotage for quite awhile, ever since I first saw that mysterious and even slightly spooky looking house on the cover. Not only did the story not disappoint but it happened yet again! It seems like every new Susan Sleeman book I read becomes my favorite. As with each of her stories Silent Sabotage starts out with a real bang, readers are dropped into the danger and mystery right off and after that you can only gasp as you brea [...]

    19. Silent Sabotage almost begins with a bang, but due to the work of negotiator Archer Reed it doesn’t. Thanks to his professionalism he is able to talk the shooter down, get help for the wounded and have a team member get the bomb vest off of hostage Emily Graves. The shooter implies that Emily is still in danger so Archer volunteers to stay with her until everything is cleared up and help out in any way that he can. Emily has returned to the area recently to help her beloved Aunt Birdie run the [...]

    20. I've always wanted to visit or own a Bed and Breakfast, so I really enjoyed this story, which mostly takes place around Birdie's B & B in rural Oregon. However, I'd prefer to find one with a little less danger surrounding it. This series has been my favorite from Susan Sleeman. I enjoy the closeness of the First Responders team. Each story has its own unique plot, so while some of the characters appear throughout, the location of each one is fresh. This story was full of suspense and had a g [...]

    26. I love Susan Sleeman’s books. Her First Responders series is amazing. Silent Sabotage, the fifth in the series grabbed me from the first page and kept me going through the last one. I didn’t want it to end and I don’t think she can write the last one fast enough. Ms. Sleeman has the ability that while all Love Inspired books are similar in format, each one of hers has such a different feel about them. She truly draws us into the family and makes me want to stay. I absolutely love Darcie an [...]

    30. The latest book in Susan Sleeman's First Responder series is amazing!! I absolutely loved Skylar and Logan's story in "Silent Night Standoff" and Cash and Krista's story in "Explosive Alliance." I really didn't believe that Susan could top them, but she certainly did! If you missed the previous books, you can learn more at susansleeman/books/firI read lots of suspense books and can usually figure out the villain long before the book is finished. But that is not the case with Susan's books -- I l [...]
