Don’t Tell by Karen Rose
Narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo
Don’t tell is the first installment in Karen Rose’s suspense series and is the first time I have read anything by this author as well as the narrator. Normally, I am not fond of male narrators, but I really enjoyed Mr. Ferraiuolo’s narration of this installment. Mary Grace Winters is in a highly abusive relationship. Trouble is that the abuser is none other than her husband, who just happens to be a cop. No one believe that he could be so abusive. Mary realizes that she must take matters into her own hands and soon for the sake of her life, as well as her young son’s.
Mary “stages” her own death and leaves her former life at the bottom of a lake. Taking up a new identity hundreds of miles away has been a transformation process for both Mary and her son. As Caroline Stewart, Mary takes steps in the healing process. Fast forward nine years, and Caroline is finally falling for a man and putting her trust in others. Unfortunately, her ex. has taken matters in his own hands and has located Caroline and their son and threatens the well-being of both Caroline, their son, as well as her new romantic interest.
This book contained adult mature situations, romance, as well as suspense. Very enjoyable! While I enjoyed the plot and the suspense, I couldn’t help but to compare this book with a movie starring Julie Roberts years ago. Both Julia’s character, as well as Mary, aka Caroline, faked their own death by drowning. Both had small sons and came from an abusive relationship. Like Caroline, Julia’s character’s ex. Found them as well only to discover that she had begun to love someone else.
Thanks to Tantor Media for giving me this audio in exchange for a honest review.
