Unspoken by Dee Henderson

"Unspoken" by Dee Henderson is a great example that you can have a good mystery without foul language, gratuitous sex, and gore.

Bryce Bishop, owner of a prestigious rare coin shop in Chicago, meets a mysterious woman with a troubled past that he can't get out of is mind.  She has a business proposition that he can't refuse.  As he gets to know her, he finds that she has some disturbing secrets and he wants to help her through them, all while sharing his faith in a God that she believes turned her back on her.

My take?  Bryce Bishop is an incredibly chivalrous man with a "golden" code of ethics.  He is sweet, kind, and thoughtful.  Charlotte is understandably cautious, generous, and loyal to her dear friends, John and Ellie.  The pair of them make a great team as they set out to give away more money than I could ever imagine having.

With some books, it's easy to skim the pages maybe because the book is too wordy or the storyline too week.  "Unspoken", although over 400 pages, is so well written that you don't want to hurry the story.  I really enjoyed the book although I hate to admit that I thought the story itself was pretty unbelievable and the end a bit anti-climactic.

I'm passing this one on to my soon-to-be 13 year older daughter and look forward to reading other books Dee Henderson has written.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
