All she can do now is conceal her secret and carry her guilt. Unfortunately, someone else knows exactly what she did.
And they’re out for revenge.

Working with a man as irresistible and charming as Vaughn, Sydney soon finds herself falling for him.
But when vengeance comes knocking, she wonders if remaining a silent target was a wise idea. Maybe some secrets are better off revealed at the start. Because now, Sydney may never get the chance to tell Vaughn the truth.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
I was itching to get back to Poppy Valley and see what A.K. Evans had in store for the last Archer brother standing. The opening alone had me invested and the wheels spinning as to what exactly happened.
I really like Vaughn. He has been in the other books but getting to know him was such a treat. He was kind and protective. Loyal and sweet. Ready to fall in love and start the next phase of his life all he needed was the right woman. Enter Sydney. Scared, alone, on the run, starting over and not interested in anything other than that. Too bad Vaughn didn't get that memo.
I liked their easy friendship they formed. How he introduced her to her new hometown. Made me smile and let her guard down a bit. Gave her back some of the confidence she had lost. But the fear of what she was running from was never far from her mind. And when that bit of her past caught up to her, everything hung in the balance.
Talk about heart stopping. I was holding my breath along with the entire Archer clan waiting for the news. From start to finish Silent Target was full of steam and swoony moments. Sydney and Vaughn's thoroughly satisfying small-town romance was the best way to wrap up this series.
