I bought Whispering Palms as the writer runs a busines near my home and, in chatting to him, he mentioned that he had written a book. The book is produced to a really high standard with good quality paper and nice cover. Now to the story itself. It begins with introductions to the characters who live on the island and who are well drawn and fleshed out as the book progresses. They feel like real people as they are entirely fallible, petty sometimes and mean but also vulnerable. I was amazed at how, one minute I could think "what a bitch" and in another few pages be feeling "awww bless her" about the same character. I won't giive away any of the story as its a real page turner and you won't want to put it down. The expolosive ending manages to mix the fury and unpredictability of nature with a tumultuous reveal of all the questions that have been building in the readers mind throughout the book. I only had had one question remaining....who smells of lavender? In conclsion, this an excellent first novel that I couldn't put down. R.S.Charles has a command of character development and is a natural story teller. I will be on the look out for a sequal.

This is a splendid first book by this promising new author. Set on a dream island, you are transported from everyday mundane routine into a magical setting and soon become involved with the characters in the story whose lives intertwine as the story unfolds. I took the book on holiday with me and it provide me with the escape and relaxation I needed-although I just felt compelled to read it to the very end before I wanted to go sightseeing, much to my husband's annoyance! It is utterly gripping and the style of writing makes it a pleasure to read.I cannot wait for the sequel-please don't be too long, Mr. Charles! The book is also beautifully presented,with superb quality pages and most attractive cover.I thoroughly recommend this book-it will appeal to all who like a touch of mystery, glamour and easy reading.

This exotic thriller is, I think, the first published work of a new author on the block. I have not found much about him on the web, as yet, but on the evidence of this novel we will be hearing a lot about him in the future. `Whispering Palms' has a traditional island setting but with some very modern additions. The story revolves around a wide assortment of strong characters that have ended up on this remote location - living in some luxury but they also live in fear as lots of them have much to hide. The book has many strengths and would appeal to a wide audience. The author has achieved a splendid balance between a light and entertaining tone and the dramatic developments that occurs throughout the book; this keeps the reader turning the pages avidly. I can't tell you the plot as I don't want to spoil your reading pleasure but be prepared for some beguiling twists as the book reaches its climax. The most striking aspect of the book is the way the characters life style is presented. Some of them have both too much time and too much money so all they have to do is watch each other and this is the force behind this fast paced contemporary take on a well established genre. While enjoying the book and I will be recommending it to my friends, I also think the Caribbean setting and the characters would give a film maker a great opportunity to produce an outstanding movie or a mini series for TV . So read the book before the film comes out!

After reading the first chapter I knew I was going to enjoy this book immensely. It is an intriguing suspenseful novel that holds you to the very end. In fact I was so impressed that I bought Mr Charles second book "Palms of Persuasion" before finishing this book. I usually have a gap from reading the same author immediately but I have made an exception this time. Treat yourself and read both books.

The price for this hardback may have been slightly expensive, however it is worth the money as it is put together well and of excellent quality. The first few chapters introduce you to the characters but once these have been established the book takes you into a world of mystery and adventure and you just don't know what is going to happen next. From this point I couldn't put it down I even took it into the bath with me, which is the only peace and quiet I get away from the kids!! Normally with books I can always guess the outcome but with this book I kept changing my mind several times, which is why I couldn't put it down as I just wanted to get to the end to see what happens. It truly is not what you think, so you have to keep going just to see who indeed is responsbile for the strange goings on that take place on the island. A thoroughly great read, enjoy!

I originally stumbled on this story by mistake when looking for a title under another name but was not disappointed when it arrived the story is so gripping I could hardly put it down and ended up feeling as if I was involved in the plot!
There were so many twists and turns I am hoping for a film! several of my friends have borrowed this and were also as excited! I must also mention that it seems to fall across all age ranges, my niece is 17 and loved it, I am (sadly) nearly 30 and my mother who is 65 was delighted to recieve it for mothers day and has now lent it to her friend! so all in all an excellent book i cannot recomend it highly enough thank you RS Charles! (we now want the sequel!!)
