Don't Believe a Word by Patricia MacDonald

     Eden Radley has just received word that her mother has killed herself and her severely disabled young son.  Eden has had a strained relationship with her mother since her mother left her father, Hugh Radley, and her nine years ago to run off with a much younger man, Flynn Darby.

     Eden's mother, Tara, and her stepfather had moved to Cleveland, Ohio.  The reason for the move was to be closer to medical help for Tara's and Flynn's severely disabled young son, Jeremy.   Tara had reached out to Eden on the night of her death by texting Eden and wanting to talk to her.  Eden had not answered her mother's text, and now that Tara and Eden's half brother are dead, Eden is riddled with guilt.                                                                                                                                                                                                         
      Eden decides to go to Cleveland, Ohio, for the funeral and discovers there is so much she did not know about her mother and her half brother and of course, Mr. Flynn Darby. The more she learns about Flynn Darby the more Eden is determined to prove that her stepfather has killed her mother and her disabled half brother.

     Don't Believe a Word is a chilling fast-paced psychological thriller with twists and turns that keeps you wanting to learn more about the main characters and why they are doing the things they do.  How do you know who to trust and what the outcome to the story will be?  A good book worth reading and an ending that is a real shocker!
