Not a Word by Stephanie Black, Blog Tour
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?
Black does an incredible job of setting the stage in this book. So many different characters and their lives intertwined in such a tangled web. As a reader I appreciated that I had to really think things through and I was still guessing as to who was the bad guy in all of this craziness! The more I read, the more I began wondering if everyone was just slightly crazy. Natalie and Gideon's stories kept me glued to the pages and they will keep you intrigued as well as you try to figure out whodunnit! I appreciated that the ending was not a dead giveaway and that Black makes the reader really work to put all of the pieces together. A most excellent murder mystery, Not a Word will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page!
