    A Page-Turner

    Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com*****Whether love-at-first-sight, fairy dust, or whatever; it changes Scoop Wisdom's life, when Sophie Malone appears at the old ruins in Ireland where Scoop lingers. They both feel a connection that has nothing to do with a mutual acquaintance that had a near-death experience at the ruins.

    The Whisper switches from Ireland to Boston repeatedly as Scoop and Sophie dodge would-be assailants and work to solve the mystery of the terrifying night Sophie spent in a cave on a small Irish island. They need to find out how it ties to theft, arson, and murder.

    Amid an abundance of secondary characters, Scoop, a detective for internal affairs for the Boston Police Department, and Sophie, an archaeologist, tiptoe around their emerging love as they search for answers. Tension runs high at times. They are both at a crossroads in their lives.

    Two of the secondary characters Myles Fletcher and Josie create their own heated love story as they help Scoop and Sophie unravel a tangle of events that are fueled by greed.

    Even though the secondary are somewhat distracting at times, Carla Neggers enhances The Whisper with beautiful description and subtle humor while creating twists and turns that keep the reader eagerly turning pages.

    The Whisper

    I say I found Sophie a bit interesting as a celtic archaeologist. She has some moments where she can be funny yet charming and blunt at the same time. Then there is Scoop who is a Boston internal affairs detective who was inured during a bomb. He went to Ireland to relax for a few weeks when he ran into Sophie. Was it a coincidence they met in Ireland? Maybe it was a coincidence they were on the same flight back to Boston. Scoop thinks she has something to hide and she is trying her best to keep her secrets to herself and find out what she can that is bothering her. Scoop is trying to figure out who planted the bomb that about killed him and his friends maybe Sophie's secrets are part of it. They begin working together so to speak and things start to happen not to mention falling for each other. They work out their secrets to reveal who the person was who caused all the problems from the bombing to the present. I have to say I was shocked to learn who it was. It took to the end of the book to figure it out. Those are the books I love
