Book Review & Giveaway: Not A Word

I have had some spooky experiences when I've been reading Stephanie Black's books in the past (one time my rocking chair started rocking all on its own while I was reading one of her books. Freaked me out! But, in the end, it was just my cat.) Stephanie writes nail-biting suspense where the tension just keeps ratcheting higher and higher until I can hardly stand it! But I like it and Stephanie Black is an auto-buy author for me.

Her new novel, Not A Word, is fantastic for suspense fans. Psychologist Natalie Marsh has been disinherited by her mom and it's a tender topic for her no matter how hard she tries to move past it. But the more we delve into Natalie's world, the more strange it gets. She has a best friend who believes she's being stalked, a new patient who won't really let Natalie help her, and a mother figure friend with a stepson named Gideon who calls on Natalie to help his stepmom accept her husband's death. But the more Gideon and Natalie try to help and get closure for her, the more danger they all seem to be in. There are so many twists and turns, and the stories weave together so seamlessly, it's like a beautiful braid of suspense leading you down the path of peril. Readers will get all the butterflies of dread as they try to figure out who the bad guy is along with the characters.  This book is un-put-down-able! You will HAVE to know what happens, so you need a block of time for reading this one. It was amazing!

Here's the back copy:

Psychologist Natalie Marsh is a pro at keeping secrets. She not only guards her clients’ confidences but also expertly hides her own pain after being disinherited by her dying mother. As fresh personal challenges begin heaping on top of professional ones, Natalie’s best friend, Camille, confides that she thinks someone is stalking her. Natalie suspects that stress, not a stalker, is shadowing Camille—but Camille’s fear only continues to grow when the widow of a local businessman starts whispering that her husband was murdered and a new client of Natalie’s seems to be concealing something much more frightening than her inability to stand up for herself. Soon a shattering crime proves the danger is real. But when everyone has something at stake, is there anyone Natalie can trust? Or will she fall victim to a killer who will do anything to keep secrets hidden?
