Silent All These Years is my debut novel and was self published September 2018. I'm currently working my second novel titled Poison in the River.

Silent All These Years:

A broken daughter’s search for the truth unwinds a spiraling journey of panic, lust, and murder in this manipulative thriller from debut author T. A. Massa.

Melanie Stewart has just been left ten million dollars by a man she never knew. Should she accept the money? What if it means her mother, Marilyn, who died when she was only three years old, was murdered by the man who left it to her? Melanie is trapped with crippling anxiety after the loss of her mother at a young age and the fatal stabbing of her fiancé on the night of their engagement. When she discovers she has been written into the will of Roger Andrews, a name linked to the mysterious death of her mother, Melanie must trudge down a path of buried memories, reliving painful heartache, all while attempting to restart her life and trust a new admirer, Jake Andrews, Roger’s grandson. Told from the alternating perspectives of Melanie’s investigation and Marilyn’s last weeks leading up to her death, the clues unravel one by one, leaving you guessing until the final climax. Who should Melanie trust? What happened to Marilyn all those years ago?

Silent All These Years Review:
This story had me hooked from the first page to the very last! I love a good suspense where you just want to keep reading. I don't often enjoy books that jump from past to present and with different POVs but this was done so well and having the opportunity to see it from different timelines added so much more to the story. Very well written, especially for a debut author. I can't wait to read more from T.A. Massa!

Silent All These Years Review:
It is not often that there is a book that I want to pick up while brushing my teeth, but this is one of them! This book was one where each chapter had you wanting to turn the page to see what happens next in the saga of Melanie and Jake. It was suspenseful and provided some unexpected turns 3/4 of the way through with the two main characters. When I finished it last night I was left wanting to know more about the story and where it goes from there. Great introductory book from this author!
