Favorite Quotes:

People could be cruel in their Christian values, and often found guilt through association with those they perceived as less than godly individuals… Those were the same people who would come to parties at the mansion Maurice had spent millions to build and then given to his mistress. They were all two-faced Saturday night sinners who would beg for forgiveness in church on Sunday morning.

It wasn't a question, which wasn't all that surprising in a small town like Chistine. Some of

Retribution by Anne L. Parks is book 2 in the Silent Cove series and follows on the heals of Awakening. It is a wonderful story of the blurred lines between the present, the past and the afterlife. It continues the somewhat sordid and very tragic tale of the Cambridge/ Kingsley family and its impact on all who visit The Silent Cove Bed and Breakfast. This installment has history professor Lansing and Kingsley family heir Tucker unraveling the complicated mystery and tragedy that surrounds Eliza, ...more

I don't know where to even begin with this story..... Usually not my choice in genre, The Silent Cove trilogy has kept me glued to every single page and left me wanting more!!!
I personally haven't read a trilogy that was written by 3 different authors and the stories interconnect like it was written by one author!! We get the characters that we already know (living And NOT..) The storyline flow flawlessly and more mysteries are uncovered and we follow Lansing and Tucker as they experience ALL t

I never thought I would love a ghost story but I was so wrong. This series is full of twists and turns. Loaded with family secrets and tragedy that will keep you wondering what on earth will happen next.

Part two of this book is just as good as the first, can't wait for the third and final book in this series. In part two we find out it's not just silent cove that is haunted but seems there is a mystery to be solved at another house involving the Kingsley family . This book Introduces new characters and diving more into the past, and past mistakes.

Received in exchange for a honest review.

For the sophomore book in the series it packs quite a wallop. delilah is getting nastier and the story is getting more teeth and depth.

Here Turcker is going to Chistine to deal with his uncle’s estate. an uncle he didn’t really know and as he reads the papers sees some guilt and a mystery coming about. Their are secrets in his family. Secrets that have affected so many and have spirits darkening the door of the Bed and Breakfast that Angelo and Carmen own

Retribution by Anne L. Parks is book #2 in the Silent Cove series. Each book in this trilogy is written by a different author, but this does not affect the story. It is well written and I have not noticed any incongruities or mistakes regarding Awakening (the book #1 of the trilogy), the known characters are as I remembered them and they have not suffered a change of personality, as in other multi author series.
Being a trilogy I recommend that you read it in order and not as a standalone.
I love

This book is about a woman named Lansing who's a history professor who is on sabbatical and visiting the Silent Cove bed and breakfast. There she meets Tucker a descendant of the original owners. Together their research new ghosts that have appeared at the inn and old ghost that were encountered in Awakening. Together they must solve a mystery and survive to talk about in the process.

This book was lots of fun. I'm glad we learned more about the ghostly inhabitants of the inn and that we get to

The bridge between the books of this trilogy is seamless, a true feat when you have three different authors. Lansing and Tucker are my favorite characters of the series. The Inn is a character in it's own right and each author's vision adds to the setting without taking away from the previous story. The characters are intriguing and the intertwined mysteries are full of suspense and twists. My favorite aspect of this trilogy is all of the familial connections and the way they flow from book to b ...more

This is my first time reading this author. This is also another great addition to this series that has a great ghost story to it. When Lansing goes to that inn in Maine she is soon uncovering a grand mystery that has many secrets and danger attached to it. When Tucker comes to settle things since his father is away with his brother's estate he also meets with danger. The things they meet and the secrets that come out get you to the edge with this story. The two also help each other and build a g ...more

With all of the paranormal ghosts and goings on in our introduction to Silent Cove in book 1 of the series (this is a standalone book in the series) you wouldn't think there was much more that could be done and you would be wrong. The author has given us a beautiful and well educated duet who team up to find answers about the past and the little boy. The further they dig the more questions. Great who done it, with characters that drive you nuts literally, and a hodgepodge of stuff going on from ...more

Retribution (Silent Cove Book 2) by Anne L. Parks

Another creepy good read in Retribution book two, a silent cove novel. I enjoyed finding out more about the Mysterious Inn and its ghostly occupants. I also got to meet two human guests at the Inn, Lansing and Tucker. I loved these characters and their part in this ghostly tale. I'm looking forward to continuing with book three.

I give Retribution 4 stars for its ghostly good tale.
I would recommend this book to Paranormal and Mystery fans.

This is my first time reading Anne L. Parks and I am glad I did! I have loved this series so far and can't wait for book 3! Although this is a series by 3 different authors, the storyline has flowed so well! I love Lansing and Tucker and hope to see more from them in the future! You can easily fall in love with the small town of Chistine and all of its little quirks!

So book 2 in the series continues to unravel the mystery and intrigue of the B & B. The flow from book 1 to book 2 is well executed though each one is written by a different author. Kudos to all three of them. Even if you're not a fan of paranormal or afterlife stories, this series will keep you interested.

Retribution. Wow! This book is packed with so much suspense that it had me mesmerized. In the beginning I had to reread it slowly to make sure I understood all the new characters to the story. Lansing and Tucker discover so much more about the people who lived at Silent Cove when Tucker's uncle dies and he comes to settle his estate. Lansing and Tucker discover a boy ghost that is the key to several mysterious deaths in his family. More mystery of the story of Eliza, Maurice, and Delilah unfolds ...more
