Whispered Wishes: Sue Lilley

Genre: Romance, Contemporary fiction, Adult fiction, Explicit

Rating: 3/5

This book is a complete reality show bundled into a book. It contains all the right elements in perfect measures: romance, drama, suspense, etc.

The story begins with Olivia coming to Havenwood Village during a blizzard. Not much is provided as means of background to the character or her life. She lands in the village as a result of her mistakes, which let me tell you are many. The blizzard causes her car to hit a crater which punctures her tire. From here the book gains momentum. She goes to Havenwood Tavern and is looked after by Donna. Olivia runs into Nathan Swift, a billionaire in hiding. I wouldn’t divulge into details as it would spoil the fun of reading. The story moves to disclose the lives of these characters and how they get intertwined with each other.

A kidnapping turns the lives of all the characters into a whirlwind. Characters from the past surface up causing Olivia and Nathan to become distant. New twists and turns make it an interesting read and will keep you engaged. There is love and gentleness for those looking for a romantic read. The book also speaks of family, friendship, generosity, love, parental love and relationships.

The drawbacks I felt was that not enough time was given to develop characters and they seem rushed. The events in the book are not fully examined neither given full treatment. The writing if crisp but rushed as if in a hurry to reach the end. Several characters seem incomplete and their development unfair as they are not vindicated and are shown in only one shade.

It is a sweet read for anyone who has a taste for family sagas and drama. A one time read for me, but yes, pleasurable.

I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review. My views are unbiased and have no influence by the author or publisher.

Words do not describe a person. I am many things and yet nothing. I am an avid reader, reading her way through the pages of life. Some stories warm the heart and yet others have let me dry. I am a result of my life, and yet my life is part a result of me. Don't try to figure me.
