Not worth buying! One part of the solution was really obvious and the second became so. Worth buying? Not really. The characters could have done with more padding. Only buy if you want all the authors work

A very superficial short story, took 20 mins to read and absolutely no believable characterisation of anyone.
Have just paid £1.99 for this having been misled into thinking it to be a novel. Shame as the Sloane Monroe series is fine.
Avoid at all costs!

This was an excellent, polished short read, full of interesting characters, a totally unexpected murder mystery, on Isabelle's wedding day of all days.

It was very short, but it had warmth, a good mystery, some very believable characters, some humour, some intrigue and even danger, and a couple of red herrings. The explanation was very plausible, and all the characters likeable. It wasn't a romance in the strictest sense, despite the wedding, but it ended with the potential for one, and for a more enduring HEA. A really good read that I would have been happy to pay for.

I did not realise that this was a short novel. My fault - I did not read the small print. Bradshaw has a light writing style, maybe too light at this time. I had the feeling that the writing process was hurried. Nevertheless, I was entertained enough to read to the end and I confess the identity of the killer caught me out.

On the positive side this novel gives easy reading, but there again, in places the syntax is perplexing, as though the author was trying too hard to create an individual style. This kind of thing, together with words incorrectly used, tends to jolt the reader out of the story, breaking the spell, and prospective fans can be lost. As a reader (and writer) I like to see taut, spare writing especially in crime fiction. Bradshaw has a tendency to use three words where one will do nicely.

Another reviewer has pointed out the glaring mistakes, which again suggest hurry, and perhaps sloppy editing. There is no argement that Bradshaw has talent for storytelling, however hurrying the writing process is always a mistake.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of A Mess 26 Feb. 2015
By Darcia Helle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm never happy about writing negative reviews, but I always have to be honest. The only positive thing I have to say about this book is that the writing itself is fine, aside from some obvious editing issues. Sentence structure is good and the author gets a nice rhythm going. Her writing is easy to read. From there, it all falls apart.

First, I have to comment on the cover. The photo gives me the impression of a historical piece, but this is a modern day story. This issue doesn't affect my rating or review, it's just something worth mentioning.

Next we have the characters. There is virtually no character development. I'm aware that this is a novella, but short fiction does not have to and should not be vague and incomplete. I read this entire book and still have no idea who these people are. Even the barest details were absent, such as physical descriptions. Are the characters tall, short, fat, skinny, pretty, ugly? I have no idea. And I find it impossible to care what happens to characters I know nothing about.

Next we have glaring plot holes and actions that are entirely too convenient with no explanation. For instance, in one scene a friend rushes into Isabelle's hotel room to check on her well being. How did he get in? Hotel staff doesn't just let strangers into a person's room. In another scene, someone is drugged and unable to stay conscious. Yet no one takes this person to the hospital or so much as suggests a doctor visit. The drugged person is simply coddled and put to bed.

I'd like to say there was some redeeming factor in the end, but there wasn't.
2.0 out of 5 stars Great Story Premise to Muddled Execution 2 Dec. 2016
By Pheel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Whispers of Murder is an excellent story, at least in concept. In reality, though, it falls short in several areas. Fair warning: what I mention MIGHT be construed as Spoilers, though what I mention is more like questionable procedures rather than facts of the story.

Character development is practically non-existent. We know that Isabelle has "been away", but we don't know for how long, besides likely being a minimum of six months. We don't know what she did in the city, if she was happy there, if she ever talked to anyone back home, if she ever went to college, or much of anything. The impression talked about is that she is considered quite intelligent, but her actions throughout the book are more like a ditzy 16-year-old. There is no background to speak of for her family or any other characters, save one. The only person we ever hear the background of is Izzy's husband "Leo", and that's because he is being investigated post-mortem.

Speaking of Leo and the investigation, anyone who reads even the most basic of murder mysteries should be laughing at the police procedures. First, Izzy calls a friend BEFORE she calls the police about the dead body in her bed? her main reaction is to go into the next room, hiding from the scene? Also, how does Emmett get to her room, since he didn't know the room number? Basic hotel procedures are to NEVER give out a room number. OK, back to the police procedures. All the sheriff does is chide Emmett for being in the middle of a crime scene. He also lets the main person of interest leave the scene without being questioned by him, yet he permits the father to talk to her in private? He does no investigation concerning anyone or anything tied to the hotel. Then he permits an interrogation to take place at the family's home, *with the family present*.

Then there is the legal angle. The sheriff shows up in the middle of the night to arrest Izzy, even though the case against her is nothing more than she was in the room when he died. Then the next morning, she is released on her own recognizance (actually that of her father), although this is a murder charge? Of course, there is the situation that the sheriff has the full true dossier on Leo that next morning. Even CSI doesn't work that fast. Also, while that info is coming in over the space of about 18 hours, he STILL arrests Izzy?

Overall, the story seems written more to a teen audience, although it isn't listed as a teen book. No explanation of actions, no background, no depth to the action. The writing also jumps from one scene to another without transition. While I know that can be used as a writing method sometimes, it makes things hard to follow at other times. Due to the lack of substance to any character, I found it hard to care whether any of them lived, died, or hit the lotto.

One good area, though, is that it looks like between the editor and the author, they must have scrubbed the narrative clean from 99% of spelling, grammar, tense, and homonym mistakes. It made for a smoother read.

One observation not affecting the review, but mildly annoying: the cover does look like the book is about a girl in the 1880s the way it is positioned. I know she is on a ranch, but the cover just makes me think Wild West.

Whispers of Murder, even with all I described is a quick read, and if all the above can be tolerated or ignored, a fun read as well. It seems like the author was trying to make everything fit within a certain page length. The book could have stood some stretching in length to fix some of the shortcomings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Novella 25 Mar. 2017
By SharonB - Published on Amazon.com

This is a great novella from one of my favorite authors. Often, I read novellas that simply seem rushed and one dimensional. Not so with Ms. Bradshaw's Whispers of Murder. The characters are well developed and her plotting has the depth of a full length novel. Now I'm on to Book 2 in this series! Highly recommend!

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm on the fence about this one. 1 Mar. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book had me wondering about its veracity from the start...the reviews were glowing so I downloaded it from the top 100 free list. Looking at the cover had me thinking that it was the story of a pioneer woman, a tale set in the 1800's perhaps. Not so, it's a modern tale with a so-so story line and a lot of grammatical errors and omissions. Yes, there were twists and turns and yes, you were kept guessing as to the identity of the murderer; but unfortunately the myriad of errors, not to mention the less than stellar writing simply killed the enjoyment for me. The author now states that the original published work was not the edited version and that as of the 26th future downloads would be correctly edited. Hope that makes a difference for future readers of this novella. I didn't love nor hate this one, I'm just ambivalent about it.
