ARC Review, UNSEEN MESSAGES by Pepper Winters


“There is a message for everything. From handwritten to verbal, seen and unseen. Messages exist all around us.”

But what if you don't see?
What if you don't understand?
What if, by ignoring the message, your life is never the same again?

Estelle Evermore morphed from nobody to somebody overnight.
Galloway Oak put his past behind him and endeavoured to make his fortune using his trade.

Two strangers.
One plane.
Multiple unseen messages.

From sky to island, they find neither fame nor skills can save them. Stripped from society and left alone to survive the elements, the very task of staying alive outweighs all other needs.

Until survival turns to desire.
And desire turns to danger.

From New York Times Bestseller Pepper Winters comes a timeless love story answering the question of what happens when everything is stripped away.


Within the first chapter this book had me going crazy with curiosity. Estelle's thoughts read as if her fate has already been determined. As a reader this gave me such an uneasy feeling as if the power had been taken out of my own hands. I felt myself praying for this to be a choose your own mystery book as one my one "Messages" started going "Unseen". Pepper Winters calls this book a SURVIVAL ROMANCE, I love that. While most love stories bring us to our knees in one sort of desperation or another, Unseen Messages is truly a story of Love Found under Life or Death circumstances. 

Pepper Winters, I feel has a way to draw me into her stories to where I truly feel like I'm there. This book was no different. In the action parts where the shit totally hit the fan I could feel it, my heart beating faster the anxiety setting in my mind racing with possible outcomes of what would happen next. But then there were part where to pacing slowed. way. down. Being the genius writer that she is, I have no doubt that this was Pepper Winters' way of feeling the agonizing days stretch out. Feeling the stress, the unknown, the exhaustion. I could feel it all. Normally these would be major turn offs for me in a book, but while all of these feelings simmered the feeling of suspense and anxiety only grew. So while the beautiful slow pacing of the story took hold, I found myself turning pages with urgency seeking out answers to so many questions. I also felt like the quieter moments throughout this book allowed for many moments of self reflection. This book posed many questions that I pondered through out the story.

I loved the characters, I loved Estelle's strength and courage, and determination I loved her pure heart. And I loved Galloway's drive, his unwavering need to provide and protect all the while fighting an epic inner battle. Fascinating. Most of all I loved their undeniable pull towards each other. 

This book was so different then any other book I've read. It was beautiful. Thought provoking, and suspenseful. Unseen Messages is a refreshing look at how the choices we make each day can effect our entire lives. Sometimes the only choice we are left with is to LOVE with our whole hearts, and endure to the end.
