Amazing book a must read!! I loved it when characters from the other series make an appearance! It was great getting an update on Rebekka! Even though this book is in a series it can definitely be read as a stand alone book! I would recommend the whole series though ! This book has lots of twists and turns just when you think you've figured it out nope you didnt! Highly recommend this book and any book written by Willow Rose she is truly an amazing writter!
This is a fascinating suspense novel with a complicated plot. Interestingly, there are several characters the reader cannot like and, thus, when the culprit(s) are revealed, the reader feels great satisfaction when the guilty are caught and imprisoned. My gripe is when the main character, Jack Ryder, and/or his family end up hurt or in danger, it grows old as a plot device.
Willow Rose - such a sweet, innocent-sounding name - but what comes out of her alter-ego, Queen of Scream's mind and from the author's pen - is anything but, proving once again the truth of the Bard's words, 'the pen is mightier than the sword'!
A 'standalone' story, DON'T TELL, luckily does not (anywhere near) stand alone, either in Willow Rose's excellent Jack Ryder series, (there are 6 previous novels available and highly recommended f ...more
This plot is great. However, the writing is really bad. The writer decided to try to keep the killer secret when it was always apparent who it was. This led to constructing the story going back and forth in time and really clumsy writing. She should have just told the story. Also, the idea of telling part of it in first person and part in third was uncomfortable, maybe because it isn't proper English, but certainly because it made for an artificial story structure. The ...more
I can usually figure books out pretty easily. This one kept me going til the very end. I thought I had it figured out and then it twisted again. Loved this story! I feel bad that poor little Austin was traumatized again, but I hope that's building towards something epic.
Jack and Shannon take the kids to Maggie Valley, North Carolina for a ski vacation. Before they get to their rental cabin, they're sideswiped by a speeding car. The driver of the other car, an investigative reporter for Time magazine, ends up in a coma and arrested for murder by the local police. Jack becomes involved in the investigation.
DON'T TELL was a non-stop read!!
Jack, Shannon and kids have gone on a family skiing vacation. Little do they know, the havioc they will get involved with, all fueled by the strange family next door!
Will they all survive? Guess you'll have to read DON'T TELL....LOL
I'm used to figuring out the murderer by the time I'm half-way through the book, but I got this one wrong!
The author brought me into the family and I couldn’t put the book down. A simple ski vacation turned into a terrifying experience as one body after another is found. The way this story ends keeps me coming back for more books by this author.
