    1 thought on “Unspoken”

    1. I generally love Lisa Jackson books. I think she is a great writer and one of my faves. She writes great romantic suspense thriller. But this one was just ok for me. The plot was great, but it felt like so much more romance played into this one. And I am not big on romance. It seemed like the book revolved more around a love hate triangle that it did the mystery.I did not really connect to any of the characters. I thought Shelby, the lead character was ridiculously weak in many areas and I did n [...]

    2. Okay, I'm still reading this book but there are a few things that are really annoying me:1: for a book written/published in 2012, I can't figure out why the kids are in the front of the pick up truck with no car seats.2: apparently condoms don't exist or weren't invented yet? 3: why a sheriff would leave his six and four-year-old kids by themselves in a truck while he went into a store to shopt to mention it was 100+ degrees outside and no A/C4: chewing tobacco-YUCK! And again, the sheriff, with [...]

    3. I love the way Lisa Jackson writes. Although I consider this one of my lazy books, where I don't have to think about what's going on, she still finds a way to keep me interested and wanting to find out how the story ends. Some things were predictable, but I would read this again.

    4. Sample prose: Why was it that she always noticed how all-male he was, how raw and rugged and untamed? Like these dry, wind-blown hills, he was earthy and wild and Texan.Did you roll your eyes just reading that short paragraph? Imagine how sore mine were after 400+ pages if that drivel. I would have stopped readingI WANTED to stop readingbut I was trapped in bed with the flu.When I picked it up at the drugstore along with my prescription, the premise sounded ok: Mysterious envelope arrives at She [...]

    5. Good story. For some reason, I kept picturing the show Dallas. Lots of twists and turns that you don't see coming.

    6. I am a Lisa Jackson fan, and I enjoyed this small-town mystery though it’s not as good as her To Die series.In the book’s Prologue, Ross McCallum is on trial for killing Ramón Estevan. With only circumstantial evidence and one witness testimony, he was found guilty. Ross vows to take revenge on everyone who was involved in setting him up.The story then moves ahead ten years, and the witness who was responsible for putting Ross behind bars is dying of cancer and does not want to die with a g [...]

    7. Excellent thriller! I'm usually not a fan of free standing stories, but this was a good one with some indirect ties to other story lines. Love this author and continue to be amazed at the depth & variations of imgination as well as the story telling ability. More please! I'm always sorry to get to the end!!!

    8. This was a Book Club selection. The Preface grabbed me, however, the book fell apart by having to many arteries from the heart of the story. The book was time consuming while the ending wrapped up in the last 10 pages. I do not recommend.

    9. Lots of negative reviews on this one, but I have to say I enjoyed it. It had weak spots, but this is an update from a previous version so some things got missed in the update. Still, I liked the story and I love Lisa Jackson.

    10. Not one of her best books, UNSPOKEN did not hold my interest as some of the authors other books have. I found the story to be a little too far-fetched.It took me a long time to finish because I kept losing interest. I would probably not read the sequel or next in series.

    11. Lisa Jackson books were suggested to me because I like murder mysteries. This is the first one I read. I really enjoyed it.

    12. Lost sleep over this one. Couldn't wait to see what next was going to emerge. The old adage that what you don't know what hurt you is proved just how very untrue that saying is. A must read.

    13. For a Lisa Jackson book I was very disappointed. No time was spent on plot or character development everything was just second rate, like an unfinished draft or something.

    14. once I got into it, it was a page turner. Enjoyable read, that's for sure. Jackson's novels never disappoint me

    15. Good book, interesting charactersLoved getting to know the characters. The story was good, though a bit unbelievable at times. Well written. Kept wanting to come back for more.

    16. The envelope delivered to Shelby Cole's Seattle home contains no return address, just a photograph of a little girl. Shelby knows at once that this is the daughter she was told died at birth. And in that moment, Shelby knows something else: she needs to go back to Bad Luck, Texas. The More You TellShe's not the only one coming home. A long-ago killing is in the news again following recanted testimony. A violent nightmare from Shelby's past has been set free. And she can't shake a suspicion that [...]

    17. This was my first Lisa Jackson and I was really excited about the book from the synopsis on the back cover. I like when romance books have some mystery behind it. So, I picked it up but I feel like this book went in chunks or a bar graph for me. At the beginning, the opening sequence was brilliant. I was intrigued by what had happened between Ross and Shelby but wasn't given too much info and while reading it I was wondering if perhaps Ross was indeed innocent. From that point on the book was re [...]

    18. Started to read this book, then just skimmed. Wasn't really that interesting. Didn't care for any of the characters. Plot rather contrived. Having sex with 16 y.o.'s when one is in one's late 20's can get you in deep trouble in my state. Oh well!

    19. This had way too much going on in this book. There was, from what I could see, about six things going on and only four I felt were relevant to the story. The other two just felt like something added on to try to make it interesting but, it just felt overwhelming and unnecessary.It was just so frustrating and there were some inconsistences as well.First, missing action. One moment, they’re sitting down and then the next moment, they’re reaching for the door.Second, there was a loud click on t [...]

    20. A picture arrives in the mail and the little girl in the photo is the spitting image of you—but wait! Weren’t you told that your baby died at birth? And was that not 9 long years ago, same age as the moppet in the photo looks now?Secret babies, hidden ‘deaths’, clandestine adoptions, and a lost love from the past. Sounds like it kicks ass, right?Well… kicked my shin a little, but didn’t get so high up as my ass. And I’m short.Excellent premise, muddy execution. Too many characters. [...]

    21. The plot to Lisa Jackson's 'Unspoken' never went beyond an interesting premise. The book as a whole was flat in romance, mystery and plausible ending. I never actually believed the supposed intense connection between rich girl Shelby Cole and cowboy Nevada Smith. The relationship between them felt more like the guy friend she used to know versus the man she was madly in love with. Everything about their connection was stock paperback romance of the 90's. The largest aspect of the story is a myst [...]

    22. Just started this oneought I'd enjoy it, with its partial setting of Seattle, WA, but don't know's not grabbing me right from the start, but could be I'm just not in the mood for it. I've read other Lisa Jacksons that have kept me interested, but maybe that's because I've gotten to know the charactersAlso, this is one of her older books, and perhaps less evolved, although there is a note that she had updated this version/release/edition/whatever you call it.Finished itt my favorite, I like her B [...]

    23. Unspoken is a really, really good mystery peppered with some known suspects and a lot of unknown. Very well written suspense and very hot romance.Shelby was 17 when she got pregnant and the father was the man she loved, Neveda, or the man who raped her, Ross. Soon after Ramon Estevan is murdered and Ross is convicted of the crime. Shelby has a baby girl who dies at birth, or did she. Shelby leaves town, vowing never to return. 10 years later the old drunk who claimed he saw Ross in Estevan's Mar [...]

    24. This was a pretty good. When searching for a quick read I often go with a Lisa Jackson book. There were a few things that bothered me in this book.1. Why was Shelby so dead set against Nevada? SHE was the one who ran. For much of the book she talks about trust issues with him and it being a mistake to fall for him. Why? When she flashed backed to the past it was evident that Nevada was a great guy. I was expecting more to the story and felt disappointed. It was almost like it was an avenue Jacks [...]

    25. I am reading this now. I usually don't care for stories that have a powerful rich "Daddy" and a troubled rebellious Little Princess daughter. But I already started reading it so might as well continue. This is the author who constantly describes people as having "his jaw slid to the side" or "she slid her jaw to the side". WTF does this stupid phrase even mean? It is so distracting when I am reading her books. I have a talley going so far, of two "jaw slid to the side" comments. I am sure there [...]
