Jane Edwards paints a beautiful contemporary romance that hooks the audience because the lead couple is a delightful pair who deserves happiness. The story line allows the romance to slowly develop in the background while Penny and Matt work on building up their businesses. Penny¿s work as a flying companion to little children is an intriguing approach to a modern day problem of extended families separated by geography. Though a smuggling subplot adds unnecessary suspense, fans of a realistic romance in a global economy will appreciate A WHISPER OF SUSPICION. Harriet Klausner
