Release Day! No More Words by Kerry Lonsdale ~ My Thoughts #NoMoreWords #NetGalley

 Happy Release Day!

No More Words

No More Words by Kerry Lonsdale
Series: No More #1
Women's Psychological Fiction, 327 pages
Published July 6th 2021 by Lake Union Publishing

From the Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author comes the first book in a trilogy about love, betrayal, and the secrets families keep.

Forced to choose between abortion or adoption, Olivia Carson’s younger sister, Lily, runs away from home. Sixteen and pregnant, she never returns. But she writes. Once a year, Lily mails a picture of her son, Josh, to Olivia until his thirteenth year. Then it’s Josh himself who arrives at Olivia’s house, alone, terrified, and in possession of a notarized declaration from Lily. It begins, “In the event I go missing…”

Josh has difficulty talking. He can’t read or write, but he’s a prolific artist, exhibiting skill beyond his age. His drawings are as detailed as they are horrific. Olivia soon realizes Josh’s artwork tells a story. There’s more to his arrival and to Lily’s untimely disappearance than it seems. Using the drawings as a road map, Olivia traces Josh’s path back to his mom. Each drawing sheds light on Lily’s past and reveals a darkness that forces Olivia to question everything she thought she knew about her family.

My thoughts about No More Words ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"Summer of '95—Charlotte and Dwight Carson unloaded their three children at the Whitmans' lakeside cabin like a courier with a cardboard package."

I love Kerry's stories and am always excited when she has a new book out. No More Words is the first book in her amazing new trilogy. Her stories are always full of caring, interesting people with just the right amount of unexpected twists. There's never a dull moment in one of Kerry's stories, that's for sure.

No More Words starts out innocently enough, with Oliva and her siblings staying at a friend's cabin for the summer, something they did every year... until they didn't. Years later, when Olivia's nephew shows up on her doorstep all by himself, her life changes as she starts the search for her long lost sister.

I loved everything about this story and found myself racing through the pages, loving the drama and suspense as well as the complicated, satisfying relationships. Kerry's characters are always so likeable and down-to-earth, just like good friends would be.

I'm not sure where the next story, No More Lies, is going to take us but I'm excited to find out. The hard part is that we have to wait until next summer for the next book in the series. But that's okay, I know it'll be worth the wait! 

I highly recommend No More Words for an exciting summer read!

I received a copy of No More Words from the author and publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.

Coming May 2022!
