About Chasing Whispers
Sometimes love comes to us soft as a whisper, at the time when we least expect it …
A heartfelt story of friendship, family, forgiveness, and the determination it takes for two hearts to rebuild their lives in the midst of rumors and deception.
Effie’s new position as interior designer at the historic Oliver Hotel on Honeysuckle Island represents more than a mere job. It’s Effie’s chance to start fresh and prove that she’s worth her salt. Having grown up an only child to a single mother shrouded in sadness, Effie longs to come to terms with the hurt she still feels over her mother’s death, coupled with the jolt of reuniting with her father and six half-siblings that she didn’t even realize she had.
Working for the illustrious and temperamental Madeline Chasing won’t be easy, but it could be advantageous to have a close connection with one of the wealthiest families on the East Coast. There’s only one thing standing in the way of Effie’s success—Talon Chasing, Madeline’s oldest son and the manager of the hotel. The more Effie tries to evade him, the harder he pursues her.
Not only is Effie reluctant to get involved with Talon because of their work relationship but also because of the whispers of suspicion surrounding his ex-wife’s disappearance. The closer Effie gets to Talon, the more she starts to question his innocence.
A series of strange occurrences at the hotel make Effie fear that she might be the next to disappear.
Chasing Whispers will draw you in from the first page with its mystery and intrigue. The matters of the heart will leave a promise of faith and hope that will stay with you long after the last page has been turned.
I love a book with a good plot, great characters and added suspense! This book by Jennifer Youngblood has all of that. And more. I loved every bit of it.
The story starts out with Lina Chasing. It’s her birthday and her mother in law throws her a large party. But…there’s something off with Lina. And her mother-in-law obviously does not like her. I loved how the author uses this first scene to set up the plot of the book. Lina disappears, leaving her ex-husband and the hero of the book, Talon Chasing, the suspect in her disappearance.
Effie is our heroine. She comes to Honeysuckle Island to renovate the hotel that Talon’s grandfather built. Little did she know the trouble she was getting herself into. I loved Effie. She is kind and sweet to those around her. Except Talon. I really loved the scene where they met, but didn’t realize they met. It made me laugh.
I liked Talon too. Even though the reader is unsure of how he fits into Lina’s disappearance. He seemed to be a genuinely good guy.
This is one of those books I didn’t want to put down. I loved the suspense of it all. It’s so good! I can’t wait for the next one by this author.
I was sent an e-copy of Chasing Whispers as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
