In WHAT'S NOT SAID, we meet Kassie O’Callaghan, a middle-aged woman who’s on a mission to divorce her emotionally abusive husband and start a new life with a younger man she met while on a solo vacation in Venice. When she learns her husband has chronic kidney disease, her plans collapse until she pokes around his pajama drawer and discovers his illness is the least of his deceits. Then again, Kassie is no angel. As she struggles to justify her own indiscretions, the separate lives they lead collide head-on into a tangled web of sex, lies, and DNA. Still, mindful of her vows, Kassie commits to helping her husband find an organ donor. In the process, she uncovers a life-changing secret. Problem is, if she reveals it, her own immorality will be exposed, forcing her to decide whose life to save—her husband’s or her own.

My Review:

What's Not Said is a pretty good debut by  the talentedValerie Taylor. This is one of those drama filled books that will take a reader on quite an adventurous ride. It had several twists and turns I did not see coming and could not have personally predict the events unfolding within the pages. Just when Kassie knew just where she wanted to go and how to live her life, something else comes up and once again turns her world upside down. It is one of those stories that will play with the many readers’ emotions. One minute, I found myself grabbing tissues and then snorting with laughter the next minute. I feel like many will be able to relate to and connect with Kassie in this book. I thought her story was full of fun and entertainment. I found it to be a quick read that kept me engaged from the start to the very last page. I had no problem having it read in one sitting.

I am giving What's Not Said four and a half stars. I would be interested in reading more by Valerie Taylor in the future. I am hoping she will be releasing something new sooner rather than later. Other readers will not want to pass this one up. I recommend them to give it a try. It is most definitely worth a read and not one to be missed.

I received What's Not Said from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
