Beauty is only skin deep. Appearances aren't everything. It's what's on the inside that counts.

Blah, blah, blah.

At thirty-two, Jen Malone knows one thing - life isn't worth anything if you're not wanted. And how does she know this? Because the only person she's ever wanted no longer wants her.

To Jen, image is everything. And five years ago, after a public divorce from a

Found in Silence by Lisa Sorbe is the second book in the A Prairie Tale series. I liked this book a lot more than the first book. I really enjoyed reading Jens story and watching her grow as a person. She literally did a 180 in this book. I would have liked to see the other characters from the first book more but hopefully we get to see them in other books. And I really hope we get a story with the Scottish guy and perhaps Betsy? Two characters with small parts in this book yes but they intrigue ...more

HOLY BUTTERFLIES!! This book is amazing!!!

After her divorce, Jen Malone has become a bitter woman. She thinks it's definitely better to be a "cold bitch instead of a naive fool." She knows how to use her looks and fake smile to get what she wants and is used to manipulating any situation. Until the day she gets a flat tire and finds herself at the mercy of a mechanic who isn't mesmerized by her good looks.

Miles has learned to not judge anyone by their appearance, that it's what is on the inside

Found in Silence is the second book in A Prairie Tale Series by Lisa Sorbe. This is the first book of Ms. Sorbe’s that I have read. I was intrigued by the cover and the name, but found that this story really wasn’t what I had been expecting…. It was sooooo much better! This wonderful story had so much going on in it, and was extremely enjoyable- having been written in such a smooth, easy and compelling way, that I flew through the book in a matter of hours. The book is a contemporary roma

This is the 2nd book in A Prairie Tale series yet I read it as a stand-alone. Based on the name of the series, I thought this was going to be a totally different type of book than it is. I had visions of little houses and more conservative folks. I was very surprised to find out how wrong I was.

Jen(ny) is a classic stuck up mean girl. I’m not sure if she was always this way, or if situations turned her this way. She is a self-described judgmental female who always compares others to her outside

I loved the first book in this series and I love this one just as much. The two really have no connection so each one can be read as a standalone, but definitely read the first if only because it was awesome!!

Jen and Miles are a perfectly real amazing set of characters. Reading of Jens history helped so much in understanding who she was and why she was that way. She was a tough one to like but I liked her just the same, I just knew so

Found in Silence is Book #2 in A Prairie Tale series by Lisa Sorbe and it is a contemporary romance novel. It is the story of a 30 year old woman named Jen Malone who lives in Cedar Hills, Iowa, is a single mom of a 5 year old daughter named Emilia, is divorced, unemployed, and lives in the guest house at her parents' house. Jen is beautiful and used to getting any man that she wants, not because she cares about him, but because she likes the attention it gets her and the things he can give her. ...more

This author is just amazing. For this only being her second novel ever, and second in this series, I am hooked! I can’t wait to read more in this series, as well as whatever comes our way written by her. This one is able to be read as standalone even though there are a few mentions of the characters from book one mentioned, it doesn’t require book one to be read to make sense. However, I would recommend you do, just because that one as well was AMAZING and would be a good reli

Found in Silence by Lisa Sorbe is an amazing second book in her Prairie Tale series! I remember how I really really disliked Fox’ sister Jen, I thought of her as a spoilt rich brat who never had to grow up and I am impressed how the writer proved me so wrong!

To say I despised Jen when I first started Found in Silence was a massive understatement. I detested everything she believed. She was shallow, egotistical, judgemental, immature and irresponsible. She brought out many extreme emotions and I spent quite a few moments gritting my teeth and visualised causing bodily harm. Lisa Sorbe had me tied in knots of anticipation. I knew this story had so much more depth that this character had shown so far. I was not wrong.

Found in Silence by Lisa Sorbe is the second Prairie tale book. I really enjoyed the first one so couldn’t wait to read this. I was not disappointed. This story returns to Cedar Hills and centres around Fox’s twin sister Jennifer. She was a minor character in the 1st book but here we find out so much more about what makes her tick and what makes her the way she is. Having left responsibility for her daughter to her parents for the last 5 years while recovering from a broken marriage, she slowly ...more

Found in Silence (A Prairie Tale #2) by Lisa Sorbe was a fast, epic romance that will have you engrossed from start to finish.

I read this book in one sitting, and I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed everything about this story. In truth I was a little shock with how much I loved Jen. I don't know what it was, because she really gave off the mean-girl-stand-offish feeling. I think it was the back story, and I did connect on that front. She was guarded and didn't quite know how to

Found in Silence by Lisa Sorbe is the second in the A Prairie Tales Book series. This book is just as good, if not better, than the first.
We met Jen Malone in the first book in the series, One Fluttering Heartbeat. When we met Jen in the first book we’re the impression that she’s not a very good mother and she lives off her parents’ money. In Found Silence we find out that Jen has always lived off her looks. She gets everything she wants because of how stunningly beautiful she is. Jen left her d

This story is centered around Jen Malone, and we as readers meet her after she is newly divorced and has really hardened herself to the world outside, just knowing that it is better to be hard and cold than a naive fool again. The marriage that she had was one that she thought was perfect, her husband the man that she knew was for her, loving her for the person she showed off ...more

Found in Silence is the second book in the Prairie Tale series. A poignant and emotional book about Miles Wright and Jen Malone, even though you don’t realize it at the beginning. At the start of the book, I absolutely hated Jen. She was cold, rude, ruthless and seemingly heartless. As the story develops you begin to see how she became that way. By the end of this book, I realize that Jen was not a mean person but had hardened herself as a coping mechanism. As the backstories for both Jen and Mi ...more

Found in Silence by Lisa Sorbe is the second book in the Prairie tale and addresses the fact can someone change inside if they meet the right person.

Jennifer Malone was so in love with the man she married that was utterly shattered when he asked for a divorce when he found out that she was pregnant. Jen was devastated and became bitter and superficial in her attitude until one day she breaks down and meet Miles a laid back mechanic who turns her world around.

"This book started out with a very unlovable self centered main character who I struggled to care about. Jen was all about appearances and was miserable and cold hearted from a bad divorce.

Miles is a mechanic who could care less about appearances and values what is inside. When he rebuffs Jen several times she is forced to look inside at what she has become.

I enjoyed this book and I think you should read it!"

Found in Silence is the second book in the A Prairie Tale series by Lisa Sorbe and it is a beautiful touching story. It made me smile and laugh and cringe in disgust and anger, as I was taken on journey of pain and rediscovery for our main character. Lisa has done a wonderful job of immersing us into a world in which she created with her writing skills, which lead to sympathy and understanding for a sad and lonely woman.

Found In Silence by Lisa Sorbe is a fantastic 5 star romance! I loved everything about this book, the characters, the story, the writing, everything!

The character of Jen really infuriates me at first, due to the fact that she would rather be out spending money on nice things and partying instead of spending time with her kid. I do start to feel sympathy for her when I see how her relationship is with Julian. It is a toxic relationship and honestly the way he treated her in the end of their relat

“Holy butterflies”

This is the second book in A Prairie Tale series. I fell in love with this series in book one ~One Fluttering Heartbeat and book two drew me in further...I didn’t realize that was possible. I didn’t want the book to end. I’m hoping there’s a third book in this series I would love to see if a certain someone (no spoiler from me) gets a second chance or if they are doomed with anger and regret.

Found In Silence by Lisa Sorbe is a truly touching story, one that I would give more than 5 stars if I could. It’s one that has been added to my list of favorites. This was an emotional read for me, from anger, hatred, disgust, disbelief and then as the story progressed I felt pity, sympathy and understanding. It was a story I never wanted to end.

This is a beautiful story about self-discovery that I think anyone can relate too. While Jen may be on the fa

Lisa Sorbe wrote a great story with Found in Silence, A Prairie Tale book 2. I did not read book 1. I found my self loving this book. At first I admit I hated Jen, I liked nothing about her at all. Then as the story progressed I watched her grow as an adult, a woman, a mother. And that I loved. She transformed so slowly yet she was aware of it as it was happening and while she hated it she also loved it too. Reading about her and Miles love hate relationship was entertaining and the arguments we ...more

Jen was shattered after her divorce which left her very bitter. That definitely branched out towards everyone in her life, including her daughter, especially after she left her with her parents to raise. Miles is a mechanic who could care less about appearances, but does care about what's inside a person no matter how beautiful they are. When he meets Jen, he's less than impressed, & won't put up with her crap. After she's forced to rely on his help more than once, she starts to realize that ...more

This is the first book I have read by Lisa. I really enjoyed it. It was different from other books I have read. This book is about growth and self-discovery. Jen is at weird place in her life. She is still holding on to anger about her divorce even though it was years ago. Her marriage was not based on love but on the idea of love. Now she finds herself at a point where she is tired of how she is living her life. She needs a change. The change comes in a very surprising way. Miles is carefree me ...more

I just finished reading Found in silence (A Prairie Tale book 2), by Lisa Sorbe.

Wow, wow, WOW!

This book was phenomenal!

Usually, I love the main characters right away - they are super likeable, relatable and/or awesome in every which way..

Usually…

That wasn’t the case for me in this book and I’m sure that was done on purpose.

Jen Malone comes across as high maintenance, cold and calculating.

But the further you get in the book, the deeper we get to know her - and her self discovery is beautiful! S
