I prefer her "meatier" novels [More Than Friends, etc] as opposed to the "harlequin" style. This book falls right in between the two styles. Easy light reading thats more than a no-brainer.

5.0 out of 5 stars About this book! 19 May 2010
By Diana - Published on
The story opens with the funeral of Mark Whyte and his wife, Deborah Warren. The two had been found on a boat, shot to death, and the press is labeling it as a murder/suicide. Investigator Robert Cavanaugh, however, is at the funeral looking for clues that may lead to what really happened on that boat. Taking photos and watching the individual members of both families in attendance at the funeral, the story initially takes Cavanaugh's point of view, but eventually changes voices, alternating among some of the other main characters.

The press is going hog wild over this case, due to the fact that the Whytes and the Warrens are two very wealthy and powerful families. In some ways they resemble the Kennedys, with the patriarchs of each family being very strong and powerful men in their own right, while their children are following in their footsteps in one way or another. The double murders signal a downturn in the fortunes of these two families, and there are those who are glad to see this happen. Both men have hurt plenty of people during their rise to the top.

At the funeral are the three families that are connected to Mark and Deborah. The heads of the Whyte family, Jackson Whyte, and his wife Natalie are there with their adult children. So are the heads of the Warren family, Senator Gil Warren and his wife Lenore and their children. Cassie Morrell, who had been in charge of the Warren household for decades, and her daughter Katia represent the third family.

Katia, thirty years old, is the youngest of the children who lived on the Whyte-Warren estates, and was raised with the Whyte and Warren children, even though she was born to the hired help. Cavanaugh also notices that she seems to have a special relationship with one of the Whyte siblings, Jordan Whyte, who at the age of 39 is showing that he is following in his father's footsteps in more ways than one. With the help of his boss, John Ryan, Cavanaugh has a huge file of newspaper clippings and other journalistic articles that will aide him in the search for the answers to this murder mystery. Cavanaugh becomes obsessed with their history, living and breathing the case until it begins to disrupt his personal life.

While the book starts off as a murder mystery, the bulk of this story is the history behind the three families. Victims of the Depression, both Natalie and Lenore grew up without much, but somehow find their futures with Gilbert Warren and Jackson Whyte, two men who were best friends and were going to move up fast in the world. Cassie finds that her life changes when she is hired by the Warrens to run their household. She eventually marries, and now her family is intertwined with the close-knit Whytes and Warrens.

Delinsky moves the story along at a fast pace, delving into family secrets and relationships that are slowly revealed to the reader. There IS closure to the murder mystery, which this reviewer felt was settled a bit too quickly. But in reading a Delinsky novel, the ending is not always necessarily the most important aspect of the book. The many characters that fill the pages and make the story come alive are really what drive her novels. Delinsky's biggest talent is creating characters who are lifelike, three-dimensional figures who one can imagine in their heads. They are real people, not made-up caricatures that one often finds in novels.

TWILIGHT WHISPERS is, above all else, a family saga with a romance built in and the added excitement of a murder mystery that the reader will want to solve. The fact that this book was first published in 1987 doesn't seem to make a difference in the enjoyment of the story today; it does indeed stand the test of time.

By Nancy Talbot Doty - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Reading "Twilight Whsipers" was an eerie experience. I admire Delinsky's current work; but was constantly troubled by this particular work. It is not original. She has published a shorter version of the same story under a different title. The central romantic characters and the barrier that constrains them, the denouement; and many scenes--especially on "the island"--have all been encountered elsewhere. Although I greatly enjoyed reading "Twilight Whispers", it will give much more pleasure to readers who aren't encountering deja vu in every other chapter. I wish someone could tell me what other Delinsky book is a much shorter version of the same people and plot.
1.0 out of 5 stars OK book, worst possible narrator! 9 May 2014
By Helen - Published on
Overly long, borderline soft porn mixed with mystery and Harlequin-style romance. But worst of all is the narration. Kathy Garver talks. Like this. Putting full stops at. The end of. Each phrase. And she invariably puts the emphasis on the wrong word. It's as if she knows how to pronounce English words (although she mispronounced "forte"), but has no idea of the meaning.
I was so annoyed by the distraction of this terrible narration that I researched Kathy Garver, and was astonished to find that she actually taught book narration! I can only hope that she hasn't launched scores of narrators who sound like they are parodying William Shatner!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good book by Barbara Delinsky 15 Jan. 2005

Format: Hardcover
TWILIGHT WHISPERS by Barbara Delinsky

January 14, 2005

TWILIGHT WHISPERS by Barbara Delinsky is a reissue of a book that was originally published in 1987. It was also her first mainstream novel, after spending the first part of her career writing straight romance novels. I for one enjoy these mainstream novels, because I feel she's much better at them. Her romances don't seem to stand the test of time, but this book did.

TWILIGHT WHISPERS is the story of two powerful and wealthy families, told from various view points but for the most part, centering on the murder of two of their members, Mark Whyte and his wife Deborah Warren. An outsider, Robert Cavanaugh, is the one that starts the book off, as he is the investigator for the murders and he starts the case by researching the history of the two families.

While the murder plot line helped make the story move fast, what interested me the most was the family saga of the Whytes and the Warrens. Delinsky always does a good job with stories such as this, and I really liked the book. For those expecting a straight romance, this is not it. Look elsewhere. But for those who want more than just romance, read TWILIGHT WHISPERS. This book comes recommended by the Ratmammy.
