Upon reaching Whispering Oaks in Louisiana, Cat learned that Elizabeth had disappeared. She also learned that she was an aunt! Rebecca was about five years old and full of secrets about the voices that whisper to her at night. Rebecca also enjoyed spying on people and learning more secrets. She was open, loving, and Catherine grew to love her as her own.
When Elizabeth was found dead, rumors blamed the husband, John. But Cat knew well enough by then that Elizabeth had changed and NOT for the better. Cat no longer recognized the woman people described to her. She knew too that John would never have murdered his wife.
Someone, or possibly more than one person, were now out to harm Cat, the new mistress of Whispering Oaks, and little Rebecca. Everyone had dark secrets, nothing was as it seemed, and the swamps could be deadly!
***** Oh, how I adore Gothic Romances! This one is pure bliss to those, like myself, who enjoy indulging in gothics. Beautiful woman, dark and dreary background, and a man that is mysterious, dangerous, and in love with the heroine. Perfect!
I stayed up late to finish this one. I found myself unable to sleep until the last page had been turned. Author Karen White has created the perfect "old time" gothic with the "modern" happily-ever-after ending that readers of today crave. Highly recommended reading! I can hardly wait for this author's next gothic release! *****

This book is written in the first person so it is totally from Catherines perspective. For this reason the reader does not get the thoughts of others so you should keep this in mind while reading. Otherwise the reader my get frustrated by the actions of Catherine. With plenty of "Southern Flavor" and many twists and turns you won't know who's the "bad guy" or what the secrets are that are kept so well within the dark halls of the plantation until the very end. This book is well written and a first for me by this author and I look forward to reading more by her real soon.
The characters are brilliantly detailed as is the setting and tone. The expertly-devised plot kept me turning pages until the wee hours of the night. But, most of all, the actual writing of this very talented author pulled me in and kept me enthralled until the very last page.
I can not wait to see what Ms. White comes up with next. I predict her writing career to soar!
