My Review: Don't Breath A Word

Don't Breath A Word -  by Jennifer McMahon

From Good Reads

On a soft summer night in Vermont, twelve-year-old Lisa went into the woods behind her house and never came out again. Before she disappeared, she told her little brother, Sam, about a door that led to a magical place where she would meet the King of the Fairies and become his queen.
Fifteen years later, Phoebe is in love with Sam, a practical, sensible man who doesn’t fear the dark and doesn’t have bad dreams—who, in fact, helps Phoebe ignore her own. But suddenly the couple is faced with a series of eerie, unexplained occurrences that challenge Sam’s hardheaded, realistic view of the world. As they question their reality, a terrible promise Sam made years ago is revealed—a promise that could destroy them all.

My Rating 4 Stars

I received this book for review from NetGalley.  This title will be released on June 1, 2011.

This is the first book I read by this author and it won’t be my last.  I like the writing style of Jennifer McMahon.  Don’t Breath a Word is a fast read, it was creepy, ghostly, disturbing and yet compelling.  The story flows nicely, once you get used to the jumping of dates, it becomes a seamless read that will leave you wanting more.  You really feel connected to the characters and you can't wait to see what is going to happen next. 
Just Nook It!  Theresa


  1. I have seen this book and wondered about it. The front cover kind of creeps me out. It was good to read your review on it.


  2. I have a copy waiting to read. I will definitely need to get to it soon. I love the idea of "disturbing and yet compelling".

  3. I almost requested this one on Net Galley and maybe I still will - sounds like it was worth a good read...was it more mystery genre than anything else? Fantasy? Or what would you say?
