A happy child.
Every parent knows the world can be scary. Lawyer Jen Sutton knows it better than most. And she’ll go to any length to protect her son from what – and who – lies outside their front door.
A loving mother.
Some might say she’s being over-protective. But isn’t it a mother’s duty to protect her child from harm?
A family built on a lie.
Jen has kept her secrets safe. Until the postcard arrives, signed by the one person she hoped would never catch up with her… and her new case begins to feel a little too close to home.
One thing is clear: Jen has been found.
Now, she faces a choice. Run, and lose everything? Or fight – and risk her son discovering the truth.
Right from the start it’s obvious that Jen has a past that she is running away from. What that past is though we are not quite sure.
The main character that grabs me in this story is Josh, Jen’s son. I actually felt quite sorry for him. He hasn’t had a normal child hood due to his mother being over protective and not letting him out of her sight. She obviously has a reason for this but I really felt for him that he has missed out on so much. He is also quite grown up for his age in a lot of ways and I just wanted to give him a big cuddle.
The whole story felt quite frantic. Jen is just a woman possessed. She is consumed with people from her past and them finding her and her son and destroying all that she has. Due to Jen’s obsession with her past catching up with her it felt like quite a fast paced read. The author certainly has you racing through the pages.
Don’t Say A Word is a gripping read full of suspense and intrigue. The author seriously messed up my head and I felt like I had just stepped out of a whirl wind tunnel by the end. Readers will certainly be kept guessing as to what the out come could possibly be and with quite a few twists the author certainly did not disappoint.
My thanks to Harpercollins for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
