Review for “Don’t Say a Word”

Synopsis:  Allie and Bitty Callahan deal more death and craziness in this third installment of the Strangers books.


It’s been more than six years since the events of Ugly Young Thing.  The young woman in the previous books is completely different now.  Allie is happier than she’s ever been in her life.  She’s been adopted by Bitty.  She has an adorable young son called Sammy.  And a great job to match.  Things can’t be any better for her.  But it all starts to change when Bitty’s new foster children, Zoe and Carrie Parish come to live with them.  The peaceful life Allie loves is about to be shattered.

As expected, the addition to the Stranger series was a thrill-ride from start to finish. I liked Allie a lot in this book. She’s grown into such a strong, caring, amazing woman. I liked that Jennifer Jaynes written her with the right amount of toughness and vulnerability. I also liked how the fact that wrote the book from the kids’ points-of-view. Bitty was incredible too.

“Don’t Say a Word” was written in a similar fashion to the previous two books. image

But she shook things up a little bit this time. There were some surprises here that you definitely won’t expect. You won’t believe whodunit this time. Then maybe you would? Or you won’t. This was a very intense book. One of the things I liked best about it?

Apart from a couple of minor disappointments, I enjoyed reading “Don’t Say a Word”. It’s more of a psychological thriller than a murder mystery. It works really well, and I hated that it had to end. I give it a 8.5 out of 10. You can find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble or other bookstores.
