I sat down with this book and never put it down. I read all day long. I was so engrossed and lost in the pages of Unseen Messages. Pepper Winters has always been a go to author for me because I love dark reads but when I saw that this was going to be different aspect of dark, I jumped on it. That’s just what this book is. A new element of dark; there’s mystery (surrounding Galloway Oak), there’s intrigue, there are ominous clues and foreshadowing. This story gripped my heart, head, and emotions. I couldn’t put it down (sorry family)
Estelle was heading home to Australia after a crazy thrust into the music spotlight and world tour. Once she arrives at the airport fate tries to step in not once but three times to stop her from boarding her flight. She chooses to ignore the signs up until the very last minute but it’s at that moment she’s practically ran over by a handsome man trying to find his seat. She is persuaded to stay on the flight and she never expected the turn her life was about to take.
Galloway Oak is a man with secrets. He’s trying to make amends for the wrongs he has committed and change his life for the better. Once he’s on the plane he can’t take his eyes off Estelle. He would love to meet and get to know her. Maybe if fate has its way Galloway will be able to reach out to her and get to know her. Little does he know that fate has it all written in the stars.
Through a couple of unfortunate incidents Galloway does get to know Estelle and they’re much closer than either could have ever imagined. Not only are they having to learn how to survive together but they’re also responsible for two children who now look to them for food, love, support, and safety.
This book takes you on a journey of love, laughter, tears, heartache, and hope. I felt every single emotion that each of the characters felt. It made me stop and think about the what if’s of life. What if we all ignored the signs? What if we all heeded the signs? Would we end up where we’re supposed to be or would we stay in the same place going nowhere? What would you do if faced with the present that Estelle and Galloway found themselves in? Would you survive? Keep going or give up? Would you trust your gut instincts or question every move you made?
I hope you take the time to read this new dark, amazingly well written book. It is different from the normal Pepper Winters books but it’s a wonderful different……I hope you enjoy it every bit as much as I did.
