Don't Tell 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
 4 of 5 stars false 
 Don't look
Desperate Mary Grace Winters knew the only way to save herself and her child from her abusive husband was to stage their deaths. Now all that remains of her former life is at the bottom of a lake.
Don't trust
As Caroline Stewart, Mary Grace has almost forgotten the nightmare she left behind nine years ago. Slowly she has learned to believe that hew new life, and new identity, is here to stay.
Don't tell
Then her husband uncovers her hidden trail. Step by step, he's closing in on her and everyone she loves. Now Caroline must decide whether to flee again or whether the time has come to stay and fight.


Mary Grace faked hers and her sons’ death to get away from her abusive cop husband. She reinvented herself as Caroline Stewart; her life has been focused on working and taking care of her son, until she meets Max. Max was hired to take over for the professor who was Caroline’s mentor and now Max is her boss. The two of them are attracted to each other, however Caroline is scared and isn't ready to have a relationship. Max has demons of his own, he used to be a successful basketball player until and accident mangles his body. He still hasn't come to terms with losing everything he had and the limp he still has.
While Caroline and Max are dealing with this, her ex-husband has found out the Mary Grace is still alive and he wants his son back. Rob goes on a murder spree to find them and the SBI is now on the hunt for him. The book switches between these three stories until all three of them collide. This book was really good, the characters were well developed, and they were realistic with great personalities. While the book switches between the three stories it is easy to follow and there is no confusion. The writing is done well; the suspense in the story adds a sense of danger that keeps you guessing. When the stories do finally come together it is done in a cohesive manner that seamlessly blends. The sex scenes are good but they are not drawn out and are not the focus of the book. Don't Tell is a great romantic suspense novel and I can't wait to read another book by this author.
