Whispers of Goodbyeby Karen White
With the advent of Dorchester's new and wildly successful
Remember the wonderful gothic romances of Victoria Holt and Rebecca duMaurier? The woman in peril and the dark, brooding hero? They were set in remote places like Cornwall or Devon, and the heroine was always an even match for whatever evil lurked in the dark corners of the old mansion on a hill.
With the advent of Dorchester's new and wildly successful Candleglow line, we have been invited to return to a favorite genre. But far from the mist-covered cliffs of Cornwall, I have brought my own gothic tale to the swamps of Louisiana, where shadows and bad gris-gris lurk and where all is not what it appears to be.
Whispers of Goodbye is the story of Catherine deClaire Reed, alone in the world with nothing left to fear, and John McMahon, a man from whom Catherine unwillingly seeks protection, but who is intent on hiding a very dark secret.
Set against the backdrop of a Louisiana sugar plantation, amidst the humid air and cloying Spanish moss, Catherine must fight her growing passion for John to uncover the secrets he hides. But will her discoveries release her from her darkest nightmares of threaten her very life?
