While Marti is involved with her family and job, her friend Sharon, whose daughter Lisa is living with Marti, becomes involved with De Vonte Luthell. He gives her a whirlwind courtship and insists they marry. After the ceremony they go to De Vonte's special place in the Bahamas where he has a special surprise for Sharon and Lisa. Marti, whose case is breaking wide open, has a bad feeling about De Vonte and rushes down to Freeport in the hope that she can prevent Lisa and Sharon from getting hurt.
Anyone who wants to witness a quintessential "every woman" novel just has to read a Marti Macallister mystery. She balances her family and job with expert aplomb (with a little help from momma) and she is there when her friends need her. The mystery itself is fascinating because readers get to see a whole case made out of one semi frozen arm. Although readers will despise some of Sharon's choices they will understand why she made them and feel empathy towards her. It would be a shame for mystery fans to pass up such an excellent choice as Whispers.
Marti and Vik find themselves digging into Lincoln Prairie's art community in order to unravel this mystery of a severed limb. As they begin their questioning unsavory stories emerge regarding some of the town's leading artists. How do they fit into this heinous crime if indeed they are involved at all? Our two detectives have their hands full.
To make matters worse, Sharon, Marti's best friend allows her foolish heart to get involved with a man of whom she knows nothing about but is willing to give him her all. Mr. "Wonderful" has some permanent plans for Sharon and her daughter. Will they be able to see through him?
Eleanor Bland presents us with two potentially hair raising stories that will keep you on edge. Unfortunately one ends abruptly while the other is not fully developed. A good story plot is sacrificed for a secondary one which leaves you saying ho, hum. If only..... Despite that major flaw, Whispers In The Dark will keep you in suspense and will show you the effects of the lack of self-esteem. Come join with these detectives as they unravel the hidden lives of murderers and the thoughts of their best friends.
