“Christine Beckett’s dream of partnership in a prestigious New York City law firm has finally come to fruition. She has financial security, a loving family, and owns her home, why does she need a man?
Detective Solomon has worked with Tyler Beckett on several cases, he almost feels he is part of the Beckett clan. He considers them his good friends, except for Christine who seems to look down her professional nose at him.

Christine receives a threatening note and her townhouse echoes with mysterious cries in the night. That is when the handsome and irritating detective insists he temporarily move in to protect her. To add insult, it is with her family’s blessing.”

Book 3 of The Beckett Series is without a doubt my absolute favorite.  I had said in my review of one of the previous books that I wish there was a little more info on the characters and in Quiet that wasn’t a problem at all.  Christine and David are amazing, both trying desperately to avoid any type of relationship but yet still deeply drawn to each other.  Christine is a totally career driven woman, a workaholic who has little time or desire for a relationship or at least that is what she thought until a murder case throws her and Detective Solomon together.  David has little time or patience for a relationship between being a detective and a single father when a murder puts him close to the one woman he’s incredibly attracted to and incredibly frustrated with.  In an attempt to try and avoid David loosing what little time he gets with his daughter, Christine suggests a plan that throws her for a loop when she realizes how much she likes David’s readymade family and being included in the “normal” of life with them.
In the entire series it’s the family unit that keeps me coming back, I LOVE a series with a strong, supporting, loving, large, protective, close-knit family in them.  These books get better with each one, I can’t wait to find out who the next book will be about.
