Review

Often, ghosts and mysteries go hand-in-hand. In Donna Fletcher's book Whispers In The Wind the ghosts and the mystery are intertwined in mesmerizing fashion with a heated romance that will curl your toes. Ms. Fletcher's story is the subtle mix of passionate lovemaking, warm tenderness, exciting searches, and delightful role-playing --combining the complexities of a very unique mystery novel with a scorching romance. Our heroine, Belinda Billie Latham, travels to England to take over the Radbourne inheritance, which was left to her deceased stepfather. She is not prepared, however, for the belligerent attitude and welcoming arms of the Lord of Radbourne Manor, especially since he is supposed to be dead. Maximillian Radbourne did not expect the golden haired beauty who is taking over his home. Billie orders him out of his bedroom and argues with him continually about the drab colors in the manor, insisting she will liven up her new home without his approval. Not that his approval matters since he is now the deceased lord of the manor. It takes a great deal of control to battle this spirited and impetuous female, and Max finds himself drawn to her courage and strength. Billie vows that she will help Max solve his death, knowing that she questions her reality, and indeed sanity, with this handsome, rakish ghost who carries her away with his passionate embraces. Her troubles are only complicated when she finds herself equally drawn to the soft, tender attentions of Vicar John Bosworth. Between mystery and ghostly hauntings, there are often elaborate twists that can seal the fate of those who choose to become involved. In Whispers In The Wind, a romance lies carefully embedded within the ghostly mystery. The conflict that arises between Billie and Max is volatile. But it is the underlying devotions that truly make this ghost story beautiful.Mystery...romance...and ghosts? You bet! Whispers In The Wind tempts the fates with an incredible mix. Ms. Fletcher turns quite a page! A unique blending of volatile characters and intricate plots! Exciting, exhilarating, and exhausting! One very enjoyable read that you'll virtually fly through!Karen Ellington -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times

Nothing against the plot itself, but an author who wants to write historical fiction should actually learn about the time in question.
There are social and legal realities common to a given historical period, as well as mannerisms and patterns of speech.
In 1800 there would not be a woman named billie, she would not inherit nor own any property in her own name - certainly not property belonging to a titled family, she would not go running across the globe unaccompanied, she would not talk about being glad she packed certain dresses when in fact she just spent probably months on a boat to get to a new country and could not possibly just pop back home to pick up whatever she forgot, she would not have 'tons' of questions, there would not be a village lady who proudly proclaims that her occupation is 'busybodying', etc etc etc.
The lack of verisimiltude was highly annoying.

This is a fantastic read, one which kept me turning pages long after bedtime. Ms. Fletcher's ability to tell a story, a love story, is fantastic. It is sweet and sexy, and so is the hero. As a fellow romance writer, I admired Ms. Fletcher's characterizations-the characters leaped from the pages. Even minor characters were well-rounded. The dual love-story/ghostly attraction was funny, sexy, sad, and frustrating; all the emotions the characters felt. I clapped my hands when the heroine finally figures out part of the great mystery-I won't ruin it for you! You must read this book

Great story! Loved all the characters and thought the love triangle between Max, Belinda (aka Billie) and John was clever and well written. I get tired of weak, simpering heroines, or heroines who act strongly, but in actuality, don't think their actions through, resulting in the infamous TSTL label. You won't find that in this story.

Billie is a young woman from America who arrives in Cornwall, England in the early 1800s to claim an inheritance of a manor that she received through her stepfather. The descriptions of the people she encounters both at the village and the manor are wonderful and I got a real sense of atmosphere. A mystery surrounds the manor and the cause of the deaths of two of the previous lords--Maximillian Radborne, and his father, Oran Radborne.

Maximillian (Max) Radborne was the previous lord of the manor, whose ghost is purported to haunt it. Billie's eventual meeting and interactions with him clearly show the chemistry developing and their banter is entertaining.

John Bosworth is the vicar in the village near the manor. Even though Billie has been feeling attracted to Max, she eventually becomes drawn to the gentle, even-tempered vicar.

While some novels would paint the rivalry between John and Max as a good versus evil thing, I was pleasantly surprised to see how Ms. Fletcher described Billie's feelings developing toward both John and Max. John has a real, calming influence on Billie, and she comes to care for and love him. Max brings out passions in her that she acknowledges as being an integral part of her personality. There was no running from or denying feelings in this novel. And I especially liked how Ms. Fletcher didn't use the tired stupid misunderstanding plotline.

This book held my interest for a little bit as I hoped it would be a good mystery and a romantic, spiritual story with the ghosts. Unfortunately it was a silly romance with more detail on what the two leads wear than on the wreckings that have taken place. The characters are all OK but there really isn't any reason for the entire ghost story as their plan is really bad and unnecessary. Spoiler: The one ghost could have figured out who was behind his own murder without the elaborate ruse they go through. The lead female character was supposed to be so intelligent when she couldn't see the truth right in front of her face for quite some time and needed help to see it. A very disappointing ending to the story did not help matters.

I'm not sure how many stars I wanted to give it. 3 or 5, so I settled for 4. And the only reason for that is because I did enjoy the book.

When I first started to read the book, it reminded me so much of the 60's comedy show The Ghost & Mrs Muir with Hope Lange & Edward Mulhare. I could not believe the auther was stealing from a comedy show.But as I got deeper into it ( and still thought it was much like the tv show),I started to enjoy the charcters as well as the plot. The mystery and suspence is well laid out. I couldn't figure out "who done it" till approx 80% into the book.

There were a few things I did find ridiculous. I also think ( like someone else wrote in their review), that if the authors want to write historical novels, even though they are fictional, they should do some research to get their facts straight. This reflects not just to Donna Fletcher but many other authors i've read in this last week. I was on vacation, so had time to read quite a few books.

The name 'billie" did strike me wierd also, when I came across it. The endearment Billie uses to Max "poor baby", for the 1800's did not work for me at all.

I dont want to criticize everything I found wrong in this book because overall I enjoyed it quite a bit and in the end, thats all that matters. This is the first Donna Fletcher book i've read and will buy some of her other books even if they are priced higher then $0.99.
