After faking her own death, a mother on the run from her abusive husband is desperate to start a new life -- but as a new romance blossoms, he threatens to track her down . . .

It was a desperate plan. But Mary Grace Winters knew the only way to save herself and her child from her abusive cop husband was to stage their own death. Now all that remains of their former life is at the bottom of a lake. Armed with a new identity in a new town, she and her son have found refuge hundreds of miles away. As Caroline Stewart, she has almost forgotten the nightmare she left behind nine years ago. She is even taking a chance on love with Max Hunter, a man with wounds of his own. But her past is about to collide with the present when her husband uncovers her trail and threatens her hard-won peace. Step by step, he's closing in on her -- and everything and everyone she loves.


Intense characterization will have you hooked quickly! When an abusive husband discovers his wife faked her death years ago to escape with his son, how far will he go to get them back? The set up is dramatic and keeps the reader on their toes throughout the book, but side characters and developing relationships also give a softer side to the story. I loved every minute of DON’T TELL and plan to continue catching up on the Chicago Series!

Caroline portrays the strong person she is today and it’s almost difficult to perceive her as the victim she fought so hard to leave behind. Enjoying her relationship with her best friend, her son and the growing romance with Max was heartwarming and comforting.

Tom grows up before our eyes as he has to come face to face with the nightmare that he hoped was gone forever, but the strength he puts forth is inspiring.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a twisted bad guy, but still a solid storyline of goodness rounding out the edges.
