I was so glad to return to Lotus House! This is a series I have truly enjoyed and Silent Sins is right up there with the rest.
As the 5th in a series of Interconnected (and sequential, so there is spoiler potential), Silent Sins lets us get to know part-time instructor, Nick, and his love interest Honor. Honor and Nick both come to us wounded. Watching them figure out how to help themselves and each other was heartwarming.
Fast paced, with good characters and an entertaining supporting cast, I really did like Silent Sins.
But, there was one issue that kept this from being a full 4 star read for me and that was the issue of Honor's self care. The baggage Honor brings to the story is incredibly heavy and I truly appreciated the fact that she seeks professional help and begins to heal. That effort is even the thing that lead her to find Nick in the first place via a class at Lotus House. Unfortunately, evidence of her continued treatment dwindled to nothing shortly after she and Nick took some very serious steps together. I realize this is a romance and the focus should be on the relationship, but a healthy relationship requires healthy partners. The issue of Honor's relationship (or lack there of) with her parents was also left unresolved.
Overall, this was a good book and I am looking forward to what happens next for the Lotus house crew.
