For Owen, high school is difficult enough without adding the stress of knowing that there are some things in this world that only a secret watcher can fix. Too bad one of their special abilities isn’t repairing relationships because he feels like no one understands. Owen wonders what is going on with Lucie who is doing everything she can to avoid him. Then there’s Tess. She’s older, wiser and seems to really like him, but he’s afraid that she might just be using him. Something strange is happening on campus and his friend Katie is involved. And finally his father is not himself, blames Owen for everything and threatens to give his secret away. Owen is scared – plenty of dark watchers are already after him without his father exposing his presence and abilities to the rest of the world.
Owen and his family must go to Florida in the hope that he and his mentor, White Eagle, can get to the bottom of what is going on with his father. More importantly Owen hopes to discover what is behind the strange, potent relationship that his father and grandfather have rekindled after years of not speaking. They’re afraid it's a trap but what choice do they have? It’s not in Owen’s nature to avoid danger. He will go where he is needed. Now if he can just make it out alive… because girl problems, not getting along with his dad and keeping up on homework are nothing compared to what’s waiting.

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, with its vivid and varied panoramas. When I’m not writing, I can be found spending time with my family, working with students, reading, gardening or hiking around Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge, or the Oregon Coast with my camera. I am also a graduate of both Oregon State and Portland State universities with degrees in education. Writing is my passion and I want to share my love of it and reading with you.

Whispers: Owen is growing up and growing in ability. I don't know what it is about this kid, but he really speaks to me. I would recommend this book to young adults and the young at heart!
Whispers: The Secret Watchers Book Two continues Owen’s story of becoming a watcher. A great YA novel, Lauren Lynne brings Owen’s second story to life with more family drama, angst, school troubles and training, training and more training. Owen’s journey in becoming a watcher is made easier – or harder depending on your point of view – with the help of his friends and family. This time we meet Owen’s grandparents, more watchers (both good and bad) and a new girlfriend. Poor Owen has to navigate school, a serial murderer, Dark Watchers and a new girlfriend all while continuing his learning and helping his family which is on the brink of falling apart!I would recommend this book to all young teens and adults of young teens (and anyone in between). It is a great coming of age story, I look forward to book three!
Book two is as intriguing as #1, Loved it! The story flows from one book seamlessly to the next, and keeps a hold of you throughout the story!
I loved this book and the series. This is an amazing new author that everyone should read. One of the things that I really liked is that it deals with real people but has some extra sensory perception... it makes you wonder... could it be real. Owen has real emotions and integrity. He is doing GOOD. He is one to admire.
