4 3/4 stars!
“If You Hear Her” is the first of a suspenseful romantic trilogy by Shiloh Walker. Lena Riddle depends on her canine companion, Puck, to help her maintain her hard-won independence and considers herself pretty self-reliant despite her lack of sight. She is unwillingly drawn to Ezra King who has returned to town and is working on the house he inherited from his grandmother. Ezra is in the middle of a personal crisis related to his work as a police officer and is reluctant to complicate his life even further by acting on the attraction that he feels for the sexy chef until events conspire to throw them together and arouse his protective instincts as well as his libido. The sound of a woman’s terrified cries galvanize Lena to reach out for help and her refusal to accept the cavalier dismissal of her claims place her squarely in the sights of a deranged killer. Lena inadvertently draws her friend Law Reilly into the middle of the chaos even as he is trying to deal with another wounded soul, Hope Carson, who is fleeing her own nightmare. The small town of Ash, Kentucky will never be the same but the question is, who will still be around to notice the changes?

Wow! What a thrill ride and such a perfect read for this time of the year when romance is in the air. I am impressed because my mind has been expanded since it would never ever occur to me that a blind person could be a chef although I know what wonderful things service dogs can help achieve. The chemistry between the characters is true to Ms Walker’s normal high standards, showcasing her facility for creating a vivid picture of the events which form the prickly and complex personalities that give such depth to the relationships that blossom in her books. The eerie evil that causes prickling on the back of the reader’s neck could cause a sleepless night, especially if one is driven to finish the tale in one sitting the way I was...so don’t start at night unless you don’t have anywhere to be in the morning! A great start to the series, move it to the top of your TBR pile but for your sanity’s sake make sure that you have the next in the series (“If You See Her”) already and give thanks that the third volume, “If You Know Her” is soon to be released!
