Her stalker taught her fear. Her suspicions taught her terror.
Rochelle Cassidy has the perfect life as a radio talk show host in the Detroit market, but her celebrity status doesn't stop an angry listener from wanting her ... dead. Ed McGrath's ideal life as a pro-hockey player doesn't include a damsel in distress until the night he discovers Rochelle being attacked in a deserted parking structure.
Circumstances throw them together in more ways than one when Rochelle's producer plays matchmaker. A sick boy, a corrupt politician, and questionable medical practices put more than merely Rochelle in danger, and still, her attacker shadows her every step.
Will Ed be able to break through her trust issues in order to protect her, or will she continue to see him as Detroit's bad boy athlete? Her life AND his depend on it.

The motor-mouth princess, Rochelle “taking a stand against hell” freely opines from her conservative Christian radio talk show. Getting into trouble upon occasion comes with the territory, like from a politician exposed for corrupt practices, and all kinds of hate mail. When the hate mail has a stalker behind it, however, life turns upside down. Glaz’s novel about wounded and empty souls will touch sore spots with readers. Many people walk around, hearing of God, but never really knowing Him, or understanding Him. While never leaping over the line of preaching, Glaz lets you know there’s a difference, and those who put actions and character behind what they profess about the Lord are at peace with their faith over the Sunday go-to-church, I’m-a-nice-guy believers. Even as her character, Rochelle, fears for her life, she is able to affect those around her, such as her best friend co-worker and the co-worker’s pesky brother-in-law, Ed McGrath, celeb hockey star. Ed becomes Rochelle’s self-proclaimed protector, whether she wants him or not, and the two pursue a twisting and occasional rocky relationship. In a kind of weird parallelism, ghosts from Rochelle’s past and ghosts from a time of horror in international history haunt Rochelle and Detroit. Rochelle and Ed won’t let the past continue to destroy the future. These mysteries blend together for a suspenseful read. I have to admit that I often buzzed through pages of “can I or can’t I” from Rochelle and Ed, but on the whole, Fear Is Louder than Words is an entertaining read. Recommended for those who enjoy conservative stances, a little bit of not too graphic gore in several arenas such as medical, physical attacks, hockey, the use of weapons, and don’t mind occasional suggestive language which fits the scenario.
What a wonderful Christian Mystery. Rochelle lost her family to a bad accident, and then a ex-boyfriend to death and her found her way to God and is working as a radio personality who goes after the bad guys while still keeping her good side. She is being stalked and she doesn't know who it is. She decides to start driving instead of taking a cab to work and the stalker finds in an empty parking garage and almost rapes and kills her. A young man hears her screams and gets Ed to help her, she doesn't know who he is until after he makes sure she gets help and she won't let he leave. He turns into her Knight in Shining armor and not realizing that her friend from the station Donna is actually his sister in law and they had tried to fix them up. Well he works on a story that ends up putting her in harms way and also having to confront her stalker. I loved this story.
Rochelle is a Christian radio announcer who’d no-nonsense views earn the contempt of many listeners in the liberal Motor City, some more than others. When she digs a little deeper into a few locals her world is turned upside down. Hockey star Ed isn’t looking for love, in fact, he’s quite happy with the non-committal groupies who surround him, until he finds a woman who has been attacked in a parking garage, instead of her life flashing before her eyes, his does. This one woman turns his self-centered lifestyle on its head. Linda’s tale is like life, multifaceted and interwoven. You start reading along and just when you think you have it figured out what is going to happen, another enigma is added. The suspense portion of the book will get your racing, who am I kidding, so will the romance portion, except that part won’t keep you up at night. Parts of this book will have you checking to make sure your door is locked and entrance light is safely on. Though the romance is expected, the suspense will leave you guessing.
This book was AMAZING! I was immediately caught up in the detailed web of mystery. Linda Glaz did an amazing job of creating characters that drew you into the story so much so that while I was reading it - I tried to warn them - "watch out!" The ending was such a surprise and the romantic story between Rachelle and Ed will pull at your heartstrings. There was equal amounts of romance and suspense which is perfect in my opinion! I love everything Linda Glaz writes and hope she continues writing since she is brilliant and so talented! Buy this book, read it and make sure you have plenty of time - I couldn't put it down for fear Rachelle couldn't survive without my verbal warnings. =)
