Review: Unspoken

Unspoken by Dee Henderson is a suspense novel from the author of the O'Malley series. To be honest, I had a really hard time getting into this book. All her other books were written so realistically it has been a shock for me to read her last two books. It doesn't seem like there is a story in there. Just two people deciding if they should love and trust each other. It's like barebones and facts but no real depth to were I feel like I know the characters and genuinely root for them throughout the book. I haven't given up on Dee Henderon, though.... I know there is a great storyteller still in there. :-)

Charlotte Graham has inherited a huge estate from her grandfather. She travels to Chicago where she corners Bryce Bishop, the owner of a high end coin store, to see if he will buy some coins from her. Very valuable coins. The director of the Chicago FBI office calls Bryce to confirm that she is legit and Bryce starts to buy some very profitable coins from Charlotte.

The longer Bryce hangs out with Charlotte the more he wonders about her past. She has never talked about her four year long abduction, and he can see that her faith in God has been wavering. As he helps Charlotte get rid of her inheritance, he also tries to help her faith and trust in God. He becomes interested in her and wants to get to know her better. But then Charlotte tells him about the one condition in her grandfather's will, and Bryce is flabbergasted. Will Charlotte ever trust him enough to marry him and will she ever get closure from her past?

I was expecting more from this book so it was a big disappointment for me. It sounded much more interesting than it really was, but you can always check it out for yourself and see if you agree with me or not. :-)

I was given this book free from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
