Set in Windham Springs, Words We Never Speak , by Scarlet Darkwood is a mysterious tale that follows Kit, conservation manager of her local Historical Society. A somewhat tortured soul, Kit is forced to make a stand when the building she loves and works in is threatened to be torn down.
Every page of this book made me feel something. At times I found myself in awe of just how realistic and complex and main characters felt. At others, I could feel Kit’s terror as the mysteries of this novel deepened.
I enjoyed the supernatural elements involved. I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for anything related to supernatural phenomenon, although my moral compass didn’t know where to stand on the matter of Kit’s multiple love interests.
The fast pace of the book kept me intrigued, as did the clues that popped up gradually throughout. Each time something new was found, terrifying Kit, the tension spiked, drawing me deeper into this fictional world.
The more intimate scenes were beautifully written and embraced the sensuality of mankind, rather than being overly graphic like most modern love scenes. Words We Never Speak is a thrilling tale of loss, love, and determination to save something dear to your heart, even in the face of near certain defeat.
Rated 5 stars.
Recommended for lovers of mystery, the
paranormal/supernatural, and metaphysical romance.
