Genre: Romantic Suspense, General Romantic Suspense

RT Rating

Nine years ago Mary Grace Winters knew the only way she and her young son could escape her abusive cop husband was by faking their own deaths. Now, the rechristened Caroline Stewart and her teenage son, Tom, have been living a peaceful life in Chicago. But two events threaten to change all this: one for the better, the arrival of Dr. Max Hunter, Caroline's new boss at Carrington College; the other for the worse, the discovery of Caroline's long-ago hidden car in Douglas Lake.

Max Hunter is haunted by demons, but he's highly attracted to Caroline. Unfortunately, the discovery of her old car convinces Rob Winters that his wife and son might still be alive.

Overcoming the paralyzing effect of fear plays a big role in this psychological thriller. Caroline and Max each have scars, but do they have the courage to put their hearts on the line once again? DON'T TELL is chilling and gripping storytelling that grabs you and doesn't let go. (Jul., 512 pp., $5.99)

Don't Tell

Submitted by Robin in PA on July 28, 2011 - 12:29am.

After years of abuse at the hands of her cop husband, Mary Grace Winters takes her son and fakes their deaths.  Now living in Chicago and using the name of Caroline Stewart, she is ready to trust her new boss, Max Hunter, with her secret.  He is going through his own private battles and is making a new start too.  But now the car she ditched has been discovered and her husband is hot on her trail, vowing to make her pay for stealing his son.

This is a fast moving romantic suspense story that I highly recommend.  I'll definitely be reading more books by this author in the future.  My rating:  4.5 Stars.
