Thanks to Get Red PR for sending me a free copy of the book.
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Imagine learning that someone you loved, the person who had been your role model and rock, had a past life so deep and dark that it obliterated your entire relationship.
Silver Goodbye takes off fast when Buck Reilly, the once famous archeologist who lost his company, fortune, supermodel wife, and parents, makes a discovery that shakes the fragile foundation of his world. The revelation sends Buck back to Key West aboard the Beast, his ancient flying boat, to search for answers to a thirty-year old family mystery and a cache of untold riches. Turns out that Jade Diaz, the daughter of a dead drug smuggler is on the same hunt, and when she reluctantly teams with Buck, the dark past returns to hunt them with a vengeance.
To make matters worse, Hurricane Irma is ripping a path of destruction through the Caribbean, forcing Buck to race against its descent onto the Keys to save Jade and find the buried stash before the storm surge washes it away.
Silver Goodbye will shake you at the start, stir you in the middle, and blow you away at the end.
This was an absolute blast to read. Fast-paced, lots of exciting action, Hurricane Irma, and a treasure hunt. What more could you want for an end-of-summer read?
Technically, this is book 7 in the Buck Reilly series. This being my introduction to author Cunningham and this series, I read it as a stand-alone and had no problems with it. I didn’t feel like I had missed anything that made this story incomprehensible. So if you’re like me and new to this series, don’t hesitate to jump right in.
I thought the characters were a lot of fun – very enigmatic, very unique and loud personalities, and it worked perfectly with the “loud” setting and storyline. I didn’t completely believe that everything that happened in this story would’ve actually been possible during a hurricane with sustained 150 mph winds, but that was part of the fun of reading it – getting lost in this chaos of the storm and the chase.
Honestly, this isn’t a genre I read often. I was a bit hesitant to jump into it, but after being told my several people, that it was a really quick, really exciting read, I took the leap. And they were absolutely right. I finished in two sittings, and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.
If this is your genre, or if this sounds like an appealing synopsis, add it to your list. It’s a fantastic escape! ~Amber
