About the Author

Marion's parents are terribly disappointed with her... They wanted her to have a serious job, providing financial stability and social standing. For years, she really tried to make them happy; she studied hard, got into top schools, graduated with honors and found a high-achieving job... For everyone around her--friends, family and arch-enemies alike--Marion was the typical Type-A personality. What they didn't know was that, deep down, Marion was miserable. She never wanted to be a top executive, brokering deals in New York, London or Tokyo while crossing time zones dressed in designer power suits. Marion wanted to be... a ROMANCE WRITER. She wanted to spend her days in that good ol' tracksuit of hers, in front of her laptop, popping down Oreos like there was no tomorrow. She wanted to fall in love with a different man each time she wrote the first line of a new book (while being happily married to the most handsome man in Great Britain). That's exactly what Marion does these days, and it makes her incredibly happy. She loves to share these happy vibes, talk book crush, fictional boyfriends and sexual chemistry with like-minded people. And because she spends most of her days on her own deep inside her writing cave, you are welcome to come and say "hello" from time to time. Just to make sure she doesn't sink into insanity. Her friends, family and arch-enemies (there are quite a few) will be forever grateful for your help. That's where you can find her: *www.marioncroslydon.com *www.twitter.com/mcroslydon *www.facebook.com/marioncroslydon *www.youtube.com/user/marioncroslydon.

Even though it took me a little to get to reading this, I wasn't at all disappointed.

I would recommend this book to people who like: romance, paranormal romance, historical fiction, good books, and better books.

I really liked the main characters and I felt like they were well developed and had really nice back stories.

Madison LeBon has spent her life trying to be something other than what she is. Her fear of her family's voodoo curse and psychic abilities makes her decide to isolate herself from anyone. If she doesn't have friends, no one will ever learn about her crazy family and her own weird abilities. As a result, she is sheltered, innocent, and still a virgin at the age of 21.

When she earns a place at Oxford to complete her Master's, Madison takes a chance and becomes closer to a few people assuming the distance will protect her. Unfortunately her ancestors resided in Oxford and their lingering influences send Madison into a tailspin of paranormal activities. She discovers a pair of individuals in a well known painting is based on people who are part of her ancestral line and that their story is still unfinished. Entwined with their own history is the vindictive spirit bound and determined to punish them for their "crimes". This spirit latches onto Madison and sees her as her ancestor, Sarah and as such she must be killed. Madison must unravel the secrets of her past and that of the figures in the painting to stop the vengeful spirit.

I liked Madison. She had a spunkiness to her that I felt showed her personal strength. As a relative innocent to romantic relationships she is immediately smitten with Rupert Vance or Earl Boy as she likes to call him, but doesn't want to succumb to the attraction. His attitude and behavior turns her off but their ancestral connection keeps bringing them together. Madison is constantly battling her heart and her brain when it comes to Rupert. She wants to believe he cares for her but his actions consistently demonstrate otherwise.

I was not a fan of Rupert Vance the entire book. I wanted to like him. Rich, good looking, intelligent...

What a fun debut novel by an amazingly talented new author! Oxford Whispers tells the story of an intelligent young woman who is trying to swear off her past, but as the author so brilliantly reminds us, your past will always catch up with you. I absolutely loved the way the story immerses us in the world of beautiful Oxford, while also bringing to life the vivid story of the star-crossed lovers in the painting. It is the collision of these two worlds, the mystery that follows, and the sweet romance that make this novel shine. Can't wait to read the next book in the series!

I received a copy from the author Marion in exchange for an honest review. Even though it took me a little to get to reading this, I wasn't at all disappointed. Oxford Whispers is not exactly what I expected. This book has the perfect mix of everything. Mystery, Angst, Suspense, Romance, Paranormal, and straight up STEAMY moments! I was a little confused in the beginning chapters, but I quickly got over it and could not put this book down, despite my efforts and need of sleep.

Madison LeBon wants nothing to do with her familys history. She wants a normal life, so she tries her hardest to ignore the paranormal and sets off to Oxford after Yale. Madison thought she had gotten away from it all, until the painting. Visions start happening of the people in the painting, and the woman just won't let her go. Rupert, the sexy Crew guy... sees Madison for the first time and it's all over for him. He has to have her. Rupert just doesn't realize exactly how hard he's gonna have to work to get her, let alone keep her.

This novel has a story within a story. A lot of times that's hard to do. Marion did such a brilliant job transferring from one story to the next. The imagery was fantastic, I felt like I was with Madison, at Oxford. The historical aspect of this story was a beautiful bonus.

Marion really put some work into this novel. The perfect blend of Contemporary and Paranormal Romance. Researching the painting [The wounded Calavier by William Shakespeare Burton] and coming up with not one, but two love stories. I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out that who I thought was the "bad guy" wasn't, and I did not at all expect it to be who it really was! I seriously can't wait for the release of her next novel in the Trilogy, Oxford Shadows.

I’ll be honest and say that I had serious mixed feelings about this book. There were aspects of it that I liked, and some aspects that got under my fur and dampened my full enjoyment of it. This is an example of where my mileage as a reader can, and does vary from everyone else.

I loved the plot of this book. Madison’s investigation of the history of the painting, her coming to accept her heritage and powers, and the blending of past and present kept me engaged and reading long into the night. There was enough mystery and intrigue within the plot to hold my interest, and the paranormal aspect fit nicely with the general tone and feel of the story. Plus, the fact that the book is set in England, Oxford itself to be exact, was a major bonus!

Croslydon did a terrific job of shifting between events in the past and events in the future. Both points in time had clear, focused voices, so there was no confusion on when we were time-wise in the story. And during those moments where the past blended into the present it was still easy to differentiate between both points. Croslydon also did a wonderful job at leaving me guessing about Peter’s real identity in the present. While some might say that it was rather obvious, I kept bouncing between three potential individuals, and I enjoyed every minute of the guessing, murr!

What I didn’t enjoy were the main characters. Believe me when I say, I tried desperately to like them, but I simply couldn’t do it. I was automatically turned off on both Madison and Rupert less than a third of the way through the reading. And sadly once I lost my appreciation for them, I couldn’t get it back. Madison’s initial coldness and brusk attitude towards Rupert in the beginning rubbed my fur the wrong way.
