Unspeakable by Sandra Brown is a unique plot with all the amazing twists, suspense, and danger. This thriller was incredible! I was hooked by the characters, the upcoming dangers, and the well-crafted dialogue. It gave me an insider’s view into the thoughts of the characters. I knew where and what the bad guys wanted. Revenge, death, and murder high on the lists of these antagonists. The protagonists were an interesting duo. One was a strong, independent woman who is deaf. She’s a single mom and trying to do what is best for her family. Her husband died and she moved in with the father-in-law. Her son makes me laugh so hard. He tells the hero too much. He and the hero become fast friends. The father-in-law is hesitant. Something is a miss but he could not put his finger on it. However, with time, he trust the hero. The hero knows the bad guys are on the run and may go after the father-in-law and his family. So, he bids his time as a ranch hand protecting them. But a relationship forms between them all. Sandra Brown blew me away with this novel. I was captivated and entertained the entire time. I loved every scene. Fast-paced, well-written, and engaging this book is highly recommended to all thriller fans.
