Death has always stalked single mother Allie Callahan. For the first time in her life, she has found a fragile sort of happiness living a quiet, peaceful existence in East Texas with her young son, Sammy, and her adoptive mother.
Still, Allie fears she may be susceptible to the same mental illness that destroyed her serial-killer mother and brother. She's haunted by the idea that she could become incapable of caring for Sammy.
When twelve-year-old twins Zoe and Carrie arrive on her doorstep late one night, their parents slain in a vicious double homicide, Allie’s strength and sanity are put to the test. What did the twins see on the night of their parents’ horrific murder? They are too frightened to say.
Soon faced with a series of menacing phone calls, a rising body count, and the pressure of keeping the girls and her own son safe, Allie fears she'll lose her mind—and her one shot at happiness—once and for all.

My Review:  
"Death has always stalked" This first thing you read in the Synopsis.  Well it is the first part of the first sentence. This is what caught my attention when checking it out to read and review. 

Don't know what genre you love to read, but for me it is kinda mixed all together in one book. Author Jennifer Jaynes has done an out of this world job with this book. 

It took my breath away. "Don't Say a Word" has secret's, intrigue, mystery, family, a mothers love and murder all rolled up within the pages between the mixed feeling of the front cover and the back cover. I could not put it down except in some places where I felt every thing was okay. But then had to get things done or to go take care of something like pick up kids and etc. 

It was a quick book which I mean 258 pages doesn't seem that long, but this book flowed from chapter to chapter in which you would or I could not leave it for long. The main character is at best afraid of loosing every thing in trying not only her son and herself a live she finds herself facing a nightmare with three others. 

This book made the hair on my arms stand on edge. I Absolutely Loved this story as well as the author. If you love a great read about death, love, etc. this is a book for you. 

So for the reasons above I will be giving this book (and if I had a higher one I would give more) my Breath Of Life Rating of:

 Five Clock Rating!! 

Disclosure: I did receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.

About the Authors:  

I’m a novelist, wife and mommy to the most wonderful twin four-year-olds on the planet.

While earning my Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences at Old Dominion University and a certificate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I did a little bit of everything to pay the bills. I’ve been a gas station attendant, waitress, a dancing waitress, beer girl, shot girl, bartender, closing coordinator, executive assistant, medical assistant, EMT, content manager, webmaster, news publisher, editor, copywriter, weight loss coach and publishing consultant.

However, through it all, what I really wanted to be was a novelist.

It’s been a very long, and sometimes difficult road, but in 2011, I finally began living my dream with the release of my debut thriller, Never Smile at Strangers. To date, Never Smile at Strangers has earned a place on the USA Today Bestseller’s list, the #1 spot (across all categories) in the Barnes & Noble’s Nook Store, has graced the Top 5 in the mystery/suspense category in the Kindle Store multiple times, and has appeared in the Top 25 in the Kindle Store (across all categories).

In 2014, Thomas & Mercer acquired the rights to Never Smile at Strangers and re-released it January 2015. They also bought the rights to my second novel, Ugly Young Thing, and will release it March 2015.
