What Untellable is all about:

Aspen Dwyer, recently emancipated from foster care, is searching for a place to hide from a past with secrets too dark to share. Honey Creek, Ohio, presents itself as the best place to start a new life and stay undercover. There she meets Colton Moraine, a man with strong family ties and an even stronger sense of loyalty. His boisterous, loving family welcomes Aspen with warmth she hasn’t felt in years. She’s surprised at how quickly and deeply she falls for Colton. When a dangerous criminal comes to Honey Creek, intent on his revenge against her, Aspen must choose between two options. She can stay and risk her life and the rejection of the people she’s grown to love or she can run again, leaving behind any chance of a happy future.

What people are saying about Untellable:

  • Deeply detailed characters fill this sweet and suspenseful story about an emotionally wounded girl who has to choose between life or love. ~~~Long and Short Reviews
  • Untellable is a delightful mix of mystery, suspense, and love. Lilly creates characters that are warm, memorable, and a bit quirky. I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to Lilly’s next book. ~~~Brenda Maxfield
  • This is the second book I’ve read by Suzanne Lilly, and I LOVED it! ~~~Ashley Maker

Release Day for Untellable, by Suzanne Lilly

Today is the day! So many of you have been waiting for my second Honey Creek book, and it’s available now.  UNTELLABLE is a romantic suspense and a tad more edgy than SHADES OF THE FUTURE.

Here is what UNTELLABLE is about:

Aspen Dwyer, recently emancipated from foster care, is searching for a place to hide from a past with secrets too dark to share. Honey Creek, Ohio, presents itself as the best place to start a new life and stay undercover. There she meets Colton Moraine, a man with strong family ties and an even stronger sense of loyalty. His boisterous, loving family welcomes Aspen with warmth she hasn’t felt in years. She’s surprised at how quickly and deeply she falls for Colton. When a dangerous criminal comes to Honey Creek, intent on his revenge against her, Aspen must choose between two options. Should she stay and risk her life and the rejection of the people she’s grown to love? Or should she run again, and leave behind any chance of a happy future?

Read an excerpt here:

Elise tapped her water glass with a spoon, making a ringing sound and pausing the conversation. “I have an announcement to make.” She held up her glass as if to make a toast. Everyone else followed her lead and raised their glasses of sweet tea.

“What’s your wonderful news?” Sandra asked.

“I, Elise Moraine, was assigned today, the big job with a capital B and a capital J.”

An appreciative murmur circled round the table.

“The big job? Congratulations. What’s it about?” Linda asked.

“This job is to report on the parole of one Richard Hickam, in the state penitentiary.”

I choked on a piece of ice. Sandra gasped and slammed her glass back down on the table, sloshing sweet tea onto the tablecloth. “The penitentiary? No daughter of mine is going to a prison to get a news story!”

Jerry reached his hand up and touched her arm. “Sandra, please. Let’s hear what else she has to say.”

Sandra crossed her arms, turned her face, and shot dagger eyes in Elise’s direction.

My whole body stiffened in anticipation. I imagined myself in a time warp, frozen in place with everyone moving and talking around me. To hear the name Richard Hickam at this table, my supposed safe place, was worse than anything I’d anticipated.

Elise opened her mouth once then snapped it shut. She shook her head and said, “That’s it. That’s the announcement. This is a huge job. I can do the interview by video conference. It’s simply to ask him what his experiences were and what his plans are.”

I could tell you what his plans are. No need to interview him for that.

“Do y’all know who Richard Hickam is?” She looked around the table at everyone’s upset expressions.

I stared at my plate, for once allowing my hair to fall forward and partially cover my face. I prayed no one would make the connection to me. I couldn’t stand it if Colton knew my father was a violent criminal.

Sandra stood up. “I won’t have it. It’s too dangerous for you to go into an interview with some man who’s been locked up for God only knows what.”

“Murder.” Elise spoke softly. “He murdered his wife in front of his fourteen-year-old daughter. His lawyer tried to get rid of the charges of murder, saying it was a crime of passion. The daughter’s testimony actually put him away.”
