Unspoken by Dee Henderson

UnspokenBook Description:
Charlotte Graham is at the center of the most famous kidnapping in Chicago history.
The task force of FBI and local cops found her two abductors, killed them, rescued her, but it took four very long years. The fact she was found less than three miles from her home, had been there the entire time, haunts them. She's changed her identity, found a profession she loves, and rebuilt her life.
She's never said a word--to the cops, to her doctors, to family--about those four years.
A family legacy has brought her back to Chicago where a reporter is writing a book about the kidnapping. The cops who worked the case are cooperating with him. Her options are limited: Hope the reporter doesn't find the full truth, or break her silence about what happened. And her silence is what has protected her family for years.
Bryce Bishop doesn't know her past, he only knows she has coins to sell from her grandfather's estate--and that the FBI director for the Chicago office made the introduction. The more he gets to know Charlotte, the more interested he becomes, an interest encouraged by those closest to her. But nothing else is working in his favor--she's decided she is single for life, she struggles with her faith, and she's willing to forego a huge inheritance to keep her privacy. She's not giving him much of an opening to work with.
Charlotte wants to trust him. She needs to tell him what happened. Because a crime cops thought was solved, has only opened another chapter...

My Thoughts:
Charlotte was kidnapped and suffered for four long years.  When she was rescued, the police killed the men and thought the case was over.  Only Charlotte knows that it wasn't over and she can't tell.  A turn of events brings her back to the city and introduces her to two men that will be an integral part of her future.  She wants to trust Bryce but she is scared.  Her faith in men and God was shaken if not shattered during those four years.
Charlotte was a deep character.  She loved her family and those close to her, but trust was something she just couldn't give to others.  Bryce didn't know much about her but wanted to get close to her.  Charlotte didn't make it easy on him but Bryce was determined.  Her sister, the reporter, her bodyguard and many others were good characters that made the story flow well.
I rate this a 3/5.  It was a good book, but reminded me a LOT of one this author's other books.
