Review WHISPER CAPE SERIES by Susan Griscom

Kerry’s review of Whisper Cape (Whisper Cape Series, book 1) by Susan Griscom
I give this book a high 4 stars

This book is a wonderful tale of a young woman dealing with tragedy and change. A strange, paranormal change that she has to learn how to deal with. I loved the interactions with Addie and Cael. The characters have depth and the book is written in such a way that I often forgot it was a book. I felt like I was right there with them. A beautiful love story with paranormal elements, this book has a nice ending. I was delighted to learn that the author had two more books with these characters because I didn’t want to leave Whisper Cape.

A powerful woman, an extraordinary man, and a maniac who wants to destroy them. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them all in end?

Escape to a world where the impossible becomes possible and sparks ignite.

WHISPER CAPE is a town of secrets and Addison MacKenna soon becomes tangled in a web of them. Plagued with nightmares of her father's sudden and brutal death, Addie struggles with her anguish and refuses to believe his demise was accidental.

Fighting to shake off one of those devastating early morning nightmares, Addison finds it even harder to escape from the vision of a man lying on the side of the road--a man she may have just killed. When she frantically tries to locate him, he seemingly disappears, just the beginning of strange occurrences in her life. She also cannot ignore the weird sensations in her own body. Suddenly, the impossible seems possible, but is that a blessing or a curse?

Believing that her continual and worsening nightmares are both the key to her own new abilities and the clue to her father's death, Addie knows she will not rest until she has the answers she craves. As she strives to cope with her new remarkable talents, someone else learns of her abilities--a disgruntled maniacal psychopath with his own agenda that involves eliminating Addie. The only one who can protect her, instruct her in the use of her powers and teach her how to destroy the murderous monster is the same man who makes Addie's heart race and her blood heat with passion. The same man she'd left for dead.

Cael Sheridan may be arrogant and mysterious but he's also undeniably gorgeous. A member of a secret society, he is sworn to protect the woman he believes to be the daughter of his recently murdered mentor. In the process, he finds it impossible to resist her magnetic sensuality, complicating his efforts to shield and guide her as she learns to manage her newly acquired skills. At the same time, Addison has much to teach him about trust and commitment. Will fate win in the end? You be the judge.

Kerry’s review of Reflections (Whisper Cape series, book 2) by Susan Griscom
I give this book 4.5 stars

This story is told for the view point of Maia and Gerry. Maia is a very loving person and Gerry tries his best to watch his language when he finds out they are having a baby, which is hard to do when running a bar and having your old band mates come in to town. I went on an emotional roller coaster right along with Maia from happiness to depression to worry as the baby continues to grow. Susan's has such a way with words that I ended up reading the whole book in one night. I couldn't even wait and had to start book 3 right away! This is a must read to anyone and everyone.

DESCRIPTIONGerry has loved Maia from the very first moment he laid eyes on her and now that she’s pregnant with his child, he’s over the moon with happiness. Likewise, Maia is overjoyed about having Gerry’s baby, but when she starts seeing and hearing an old woman who warns Maia about the pregnancy, Maia starts to think she is losing her mind. But Maia’s nightmare has only just begun...

A most sought after beautiful woman, the talented lead singer in an up and coming rock band, sets her sights on Gerry determined to rekindle an old flame. But murder befalls the sleepy town of Whisper Cape once again, creating suspicion and betrayal, and a love once considered invincible, begins to crumble and fall apart.

My review of A Secret Fate (Whisper Cape series, book 3) by Susan Griscom
I give this book 4.5 stars

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book goes back to Addie and Cael's point of view. I love how they interact with each other. While Addie is trying to deal with the loss of a loved one, Cael has to deal with his own losses of quite a few loved ones. The raw emotion and almost torture that they have to live with felt very real to me and I ended up having to put the book down for a few minutes just to be able to process everything. I still finished the book in a day and I loved every second! Susan really makes the reader feel as if they are living the life of each person. I have read other work by her and this is by far my favorite. I would most definitely put the whole series in my To-Be-Read-Again pile! My biggest hope is that we will see some new friends finding their way to Whisper Cape so I can revisit. This series is one of my most recommended to other people!


 "Well, fate was cruel, wasn't it?"

Cael and Addison’s fate has taken an unexpected turn.

Gerry, Addie and Cael almost captured Careen’s murderer only to lose Cael in the battle—a battle that nearly cost him his life. But despite his survival, he faces a new challenge, thanks to Gerry's handiwork: will Cael remember Addie or is their love lost with him?

Addie’s family and friends think she should keep the relationship a secret from Cael so he isn't forced into feelings he can't remember. Just what she needs, more secrets and on top of everything else, someone stole the crystal. How is she supposed to get over the loss of her lover, a lover she'd barely had for only a few short months and deal with the secret of the lost crystal at the same time?

Aiden wants nothing more than to help Addie overcome her grief and get over Cael. Or is that all he wants? What happens when too many people know the secret and someone slips up?

Whisper Cape
A Secret Fate


I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, spending most of my time daydreaming or playing around in the mud. I grew out of the mud play, well, most of the time, a good soak in the mud is always fun. I still daydream often and sometimes my daydreams interrupt my daydreams. So I write to remember them. If I didn't write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play--a dreadful disaster, though not from my writing, of course. I'm pretty sure it was the acting.
I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns and tend to lean toward the unusual and edgy.
My paranormal playing field delves into a different milieu, abandoning vampires and werewolves, but not discounting them. Someday I might like to write a novel about vamps and those furry creatures. But for now I like the bizarre mixed with romance. A strong hero or heroine confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and capabilities gets my blood running hot as does an steamy contemporary romantic suspense.
