In It Started With A Whisper, a young girl has lost her way and is torn as to what she wants from life. After a shocking blow, Josie makes a change of plans and ends up finding new friends and herself and what she stands for. This beautiful story shows how she discovers what she values and finds true friendship with Chic, Harper, and Tara.
Set in 1989, I just adored all the little things take Shannon throws in to remind you of the good old days...from the movies that were playing, the music, to the simple life that some of the locals of Ambler's Fork, North Carolina have. When the main character leaves behind everything she knows, her and her new friends work together to help one of her family members out and of course it can never be easy. Life just doesn't go that way. And in a small town everyone is connected so helping one can change other lives for the better. Add in that the hot new friend has a hidden past that makes you read just a little faster to see what happened makes this story fly by. Prefect summer read!

I have come to the conclusion that Shannon McCrimmon can do no wrong! I have read everything she has written, yes everything, and every single book is amazing! It Started With A Whisper is no different. This book hooked me in from page one and kept me reading wanting to find out how this story finishes.
So the basic premise of the book is that Josie is a musical prodigy, but something happens in her life that makes her question music. Now she is spending the summer at her Aunt Bernie's Inn in a small town in North Carolina. On her first day staying at the inn Josie drowns. Yup, she drowns on HER FIRST DAY. Well Chic, oh Chic, saves her. He whispers something in her ear and Josie believes that everything will be different in her life now. Chic, who is working at the inn in order to help out his family, has a secret past that Josie doesn't know about, but the whole town knows about.
Two completely different people, but yet they both have something very similar in common, form a bond that will hopefully save them both. The reader will be hooked from page one with Josie and Chic's story. I want to move to Ambler's Fork now (California girl here who wants a small town life)! I loved every minute of this book and I can't wait till the next Shannon McCrimmon book!
It Started with a Whisper is a wonderfully written tale of love, redemption, and forgiveness. I enjoyed watching the relationship between Josie and Chic unfold. What started as two people not looking for love grew into a story of Josie and Chic helping the each other deal with their unresolved issues. McCrimmon did a wonderful job with character development. Each character, even minor ones,were fully developed. I also enjoyed watching the mystery of Chic's father unfold. Throughout the whole novel Chic's father was hard and unforgiving. He openly judged Chic and the choices he had made. However, when his father's backstory was revealed he became more human.
My favorite relationship in the novel was between Chic and his brother Dunny. Dunny was Chic's older brother yet mentally he was like a 3rd grader. Dunny loves Star Wars, comic books and music. Chic was Dunny's protector, friend, and brother. Their relationship was endearing and wonderful to read about.
Shannon McCrimmon's It Started with a Whisper is a wonderfully heartwarming read. It's full of highly likable characters, a realistic plot, and a perfect ending! Here's hoping for a sequel!!!!!
