Overview

Cricket Creek, Kentucky, is a sweet river town known for its theater, shopping, and cuisine. But tough times are affecting the residents of the local retirement community—until a handsome hero shows up…

Savannah Perry loves her job as social director of Whisper’s Edge, a retirement community on the picturesque waterfront of Cricket Creek. Raised in foster care, twenty-nine-year-old Savannah feels treasured and loved by the retired residents, who treat her as their adopted granddaughter and rotate having her over for dinner. But the community is struggling to stay afloat financially—until Tristan McMillan swoops into town, rescues a dog, and, well, saves the day…

Business-minded Tristan bought Whisper’s Edge from his estranged grandfather to prove his worth to the curmudgeon and to turn a quick profit. He never expected to fall for the charms of a village of crafty retirees—or to fall hard for a small town girl like Savannah. Suddenly the man who knows all about making money finds himself needing lessons in love and what really matters in life…

“McLane writes a romantic, light-hearted, feel-good story.” –Romance Reviews Today

Library Journal
The retirement community of Whisper’s Edge in Cricket Creek, KY, has its share of drama, comedy, and neighborly disputes. Yet heroics rarely enter the mix until Tristan McMillan “saves” Savannah Perry, social director and girl Friday, from drowning in the pool. The identity of her would-be hero gives all the residents a reason to rejoice: Tristan, the grandson of the former owner who had let Whisper’s Edge go to seed, has bought the development and given the go-ahead for the purchase of long-deferred necessities and repairs. Hero, indeed. Tristan is rather fond of the appellation, even though his motives are a bit less Sir Galahad and a tad more Donald Trump. He left his Cincinnati law practice to move back to his mother’s hometown to show up his intractable grandparent by selling Whisper’s Edge or developing the property himself, sans seniors. Yet the spirited Savannah, with her straight talk and unfettered optimism, has him reconsidering.

Verdict This latest foray to McLane’s rural enclave (after Perfect Pitch) has all the flavor and charm of a small town where everyone knows everyone else and doesn’t mind butting in when the need arises. With a secondary romance between members of the slightly older generation, Whisper’s Edge offers a comforting read where love does “trump” insecurities, grief, and best-laid plans.—Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal
