This is another book I could not put down by Christina Courtenay! The pace is fast, the plot is rich, and there is just enough mystery to keep me guessing! I really enjoyed Maddie. She's had a lot thrown at her lately, and even as events unfold dramatically, I like the way she handles everything. I could understand her actions and reactions, her caution, and her drive to find out more. I kept hoping that what ever the outcome, it would be a happy one. Maddie has a fabulous connection that is very evident with her friend Kayla (who I first me in The Secret Kiss of Darkness). I liked the almost sisterly bond they had, and I was happy for Maddie that she had such a good friend. Maddie's unexpected attraction to Alex, Maddie's brother in law, is one she is determined not to pursue. Alex has his own past he's trying to move on from, but he is drawn to Maddie in a way he didn't expect either. He'd love to know her better, but Maddie is pushing him away in every way she can. I really liked Alex too. He is a changed man after what he went through. I saw him in The Secret Kiss of Darkness also, and his character has grown and matured significantly! I liked how he was with Maddie, that he didn't push her, but he didn't let her push him away easily. A realistic relationship slowly builds between them, though there are a lot of bumps along the way...and it might not be a forever one. Alex is there for Maddie, and as situations escalate, he is drawn in also. I liked the journey Christina took me on with Maddie to find her answers, to find herself, and to find her happiness. With some unanticipated plot twists, mystery, gypsies, dreams and hopes, The Soft Whisper of Dreams kept me glued to the pages. I love the setting of Devon also, I felt like I was there with Maddie and Alex. Christina's descriptions are vivid! The Soft Whisper of Dreams can definitely be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend reading The Secret Kiss of Darkness because it is just as good!! I'd highly recommend The Soft Whisper of Dreams to any romance reader who likes a touch of the mysterious and some suspense.
