“Taylor’s dialogue is snappy and contemporary . . . A witty and often amusing marriage drama.”
What’s Not Said is a story about Kassie O’Callaghan, a middle-aged woman on a mission to divorce her emotionally abusive husband and start a new life with a younger man she met while on a solo vacation in Venice. When she learns her husband has chronic kidney disease, her plans collapse until she pokes around his pajama drawer and discovers his illness is the least of his deceits.
Then again, Kassie is no angel. The separate lives they lead collide head-on into a tangled web of sex, lies, and DNA. As she helps her husband find an organ donor, Kassie uncovers a secret, forcing her to decide whose life to save: her husband’s or her own.

unexpectedly rendezvous with her former lover in Paris. After a chance
meeting there with a colleague and a stroll along Pont Neuf, Kassie
receives two compelling proposals. Can she accept them both?
But Kassie’s decision process screeches to a halt when her soon-to-be
ex-husband has a heart attack, forcing her to fly home to Boston. There,
she confronts his conniving and deceitful fiancée—a woman who wants not

ensuing battle to protect what’s legally and rightfully hers, Kassie
