Fear Is Louder Than Words by Linda S Glaz is an amazing nail biting Christian thriller. I was literally on the edge of my seat for the whole read. It was exciting. It was heart breaking. It was Horrifying. It was faithful.
Some books are really easy to review. This book was really hard as it was all so fabulous. It is difficult to know where to start. The whole book is packed full of good, sound godly advice juxtaposed with breath taking action. It is an unusual combination but it works really

This story had more twists, back trails, and turns than a politician's promises. At times, it was like reading two separate stories, but they came together in a rush at the end. Suspense, romance, and a solid underlying thread of faith and forgiveness gets it five full stars.

Rochelle Cassidy has a radio talk show and she's been known to tick off a fan or two. But when one fan becomes obsessed, she finds herself in very real danger. Ed McGrath is a hockey player. He's used to being the sports

Rochelle is a Christian radio announcer who’d no-nonsense views earn the contempt of many listeners in the liberal Motor City, some more than others. When she digs a little deeper into a few locals her world is turned upside down.

Hockey star Ed isn’t looking for love, in fact, he’s quite happy with the non-committal groupies who surround him, until he finds a woman who has been attacked in a parking garage, instead of her life flashing before her eyes, his does. This one woman turns his

Fear is Louder Than Words is the chilling story of one woman’s repeated encounters with evil. As the target of a madman’s hatred, Rochelle struggles to keep a grip on her sanity, continue doing her job for those counting on her as a voice of truth, and talk sense into her foolish heart. The trouble is, the guy she’s falling for makes her feel safe, and she can’t need that. If she can’t get control of her fear, she can’t give over her heart. And what’s worse, she’s becoming so traumatized by ...more

Linda Glaz kept me turning pages with this cautionary tale of stalking and fear. When the heroine finds herself falling for a protector, she struggles with discerning between emotions of love and the need for protection. The stalking/stalker changes how she perceives herself and others and it affects her job.

If you love suspense with romance, this is a must-read. Loved it.

Ooh I love a good suspense and this book didn't disappoint. Just when I started thinking I knew what was coming BAM! A twist. All the way up to the end, I couldn't finish fast enough to see what was going to happen and how all the threads would weave together. And boy did they.

Definitely A Page Turner!

Rochelle Cassidy, radio talk show host, is known for her big mouth and conservative views, which sometimes brings out the worst in her listeners. And on occasion she gets a threatening letter, or two or three. Usually it's not a big deal until the words become actions and you find yourself face to face with a crazed killer in a dark parking lot.

Hockey Star, Ed McGrath was living the good life, at the height of his career, partying almost every night with a different

This was certainly a fast paced read. I'm not sure what all to say about it that won't result in spoilers, but I'll give it a shot.

There are three almost completely distinct storylines running through this book, the only element really tying them together is Rochelle. So the reader is watching Rochelle dealing with the terror her attacker has generated in her, while she is fighting her attraction to the man who saved her, and we're watching Kyle as he progresses and escalates his hatred for

A very enjoyable book! The characters were very real, not perfect but with faults like we all have. The author did a good job of showing how God can work in our lives and bring good from bad situations.

My rating is 5+ stars.
This is an edge of your seat kind of story! Here is a woman named Rachelle; she is a talk show host who has no family but those she works with at the radio station. Rachelle gets fan mail and some of it really scares the living daylights out of her, but she tries really hard not to let fear control her life since losing her parents and brother years

Linda S. Glaz has written a spine tingling suspense interlaced with a romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat. From page 1 I was pulled into the story and the strong characters and plot kept me turning the pages.
Chapter 1 begins:

The motor-mouth princess, Rochelle “taking a stand against hell” freely opines from her conservative Christian radio talk show. Getting into trouble upon occasion comes with the territory, like from a politician exposed for corrupt practices, and all kinds of hate mail. When the hate mail has a stalker behind it, however, life turns upside down.

Glaz’s novel about wounded and empty souls will touch sore spots with readers. Many people walk around, hearing of God, but never really knowing Him, or

Wow! I've read some of Linda's historical novels and really enjoyed them. Now I think she's got a real talent for suspense also.

I was excited to receive a free copy of Fear is Louder Than Words to review. I was captivated by the end of the first sentence. And by the end of the book I am definitely hoping for some more suspense books from this author.

Rochelle is a talk show host. And a pretty popular one at that. When she is attacked, Ed McGrath Hockey player extraordinaire comes to her rescue.

My thoughts:

So...okay. This is not your typical romantic suspense. I told my husband just tonight (and last night) that it's weird. But in a *GOOD* way!

There are three story lines in this book that are intertwined (to an extent). I don't want there to be any spoilers because there are really interesting things and twists and turns, but they all make sense in the end. You probably will pick up on hints and foreshadowing here and there, but that's okay; it really makes the story even better. The

Exceptional storytelling

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Rochelle and Ed, how their individual stories unfolded, how one heinous act brought them into each other's lives.

As part of her job being radio host, she delved into subjects many would not be comfortable with but, deciding a change was in order, she went for a human interest story about a medical centre which specialized in bringing super intelligent children into the world...but things were not as they seemed on the surface.

I'm currently rereading this book since I enjoyed it so much the first time a few months ago. Quite exciting. Good characterizations. Excellent writing. As an author myself, I find it hard not to be critical of everything I read, but Linda Glaz has given me very little to criticize.

Every romantic suspense novel probably faces the same challenge: how to have the man and woman meet in a realistic and meaningful way. Having Ed come to Rochelle's aid as a knight in shining armor (figuratively, of

Wow and more wow. This being my first read by Linda Glaz I didn't know what to expect. It held all the genre' that I like to read, Christian suspense and Christian romance. It was spellbinding and amazing from the beginning to the end. The characters drew you into the story as well as having two stories in one that came together in the end in a surprising way. There was equal amounts of romance with clean kissing, no sexual scenes, and suspense with lots of twists and turns. I loOk forward to ...more

If you like sweet romance mixed in with suspense; if you like the idea of a radio talk show host and a rugged hockey player falling for each other; if you like the concept of a mysterious stalker or a sub plot involving designer babies; if you like a story that moves quickly but keeps you guessing; and finally, if you like a Detroit Motor City setting, then this is a good read.

This book was AMAZING! I was immediately caught up in the detailed web of mystery. Linda Glaz did an amazing job of creating characters that drew you into the story so much so that while I was reading it - I tried to warn them - "watch out!" The ending was such a surprise and the romantic story between Rachelle and Ed will pull at your heartstrings. There was equal amounts of romance and suspense which is perfect in my opinion!

From the first sentences, in the form of a Christmas poem, my blood pressure went up and it stayed there through the rest of the story. Linda Glaz wove a masterful plot of intricacies, red herrings, and unexpected detours. Her characters have strong personalities and realistic dialogue unique to each of them.

The relationship that grew between hockey hero and motor mouth was exquisite! The tension elevated perfectly in pretty direct correlation to the intrigue. I also enjoyed getting to know so

"Fear is Louder Than Words" by Linda Glaz toys with one of a woman's worst nightmares: Being stalked. While the protagonist, Rochelle, is a strong woman with an independent spirit, even she struggles with the changes an unexpected attack brings to her psyche. Fear permeates every area of her life. How much should she lean on others without succumbing to paranoia? And is the paranoia unfounded?

Well-written psychological drama that spells out the struggle, with unexpected twists along the way. A

Linda Glaz’ latest novel, Fear is Louder Than Words, has so many twisty plot turns, you’ll hold your breath to see what’s around the next bend.

Rochelle Cassidy is a smart, single, career woman whose star is rising quickly, thanks to her controversial radio show. But sometimes fame has a price to pay.

With a stalker that won’t give up, a crooked politician she takes down, and a sizzling story that’s about to break, Rochelle finds herself facing all kinds of obstacles. Throw in a little romance,

Another marvelous and inspirational read by Linda Glaz!

It's so easy to become entranced with her characters; they're all so full of life and personality. The same went for Fear Is Louder. A compilation of very different people, brought together in such unexpected ways. The element of suspense drew me in so much more, and the outcome was very different than what I had thought throughout the book. Excellent twist!

Linda Glaz has written a gripping - very real - very suspenseful story. Although I KNEW I had to be up early and at my desk by 5:30am - I could NOT put the book down - especially when I reached the middle of the story. No sagging middle there - wow- without spoiling this for any readers....I will is worth the time it takes you to read it....the characters will stay with you for days.....the subject will hit your heart.....surprises in store...GET YOUR COPY ASAP!

I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway.

Pretty standard fare, the young girl (on her own in the world) falls for the handsome, compassionate athlete. The thing that set this book apart is the Christian flavor. I use that word intentionally because it's just a taste and not at all overwhelming. It didn't scare me away while still making it's point. This is not a genre I usually read but I found it a passably entertaining read.
Fear Is Louder Than Words was a fast paced, thrilling mystery that kept me hooked and wanting to know what would happen next. If you're looking for a novel with a strong heroine, heartthrob hero, creepy villains, interwoven mysteries and an inspirational message, Fear Is Louder Than Words is the book for you.

My only regret about reading FEAR IS LOUDER THAN WORDS is the little free time I have to read--sure wish I could have read this novel more quickly since it's an exciting read! The tension is crisp, the dialogue realistic, and the plot had me guessing about the identity of the true bad guy.

I received this Kindle book as a contest win and was not solicited for a review.

Received a copy in exchanged for an honest review. This is a good suspense romance book, but I did have a little difficulty with the lead character Rochelle. I understand the author was trying to make her scared and guarded, but in a lot of ways her attitude came off as just plain unlikable. It took me awhile to warm up to her. The overall story was well-written and the suspense had a nice twist.
