In all honesty, the story of Tempest, Noah and Flip (Phillip) was my favorite of the multitude of books that Melissa Foster has written in all of the Love in Bloom story line, and dare I say, even beyond to all of her books.
Tempest is the only girl in the Braden family of Peaceful Harbor, a music therapist who has moved to Pleasant Hill to expand her children’s music therapy business. After responding to an ad for a room in his house, Tempest meets Noah and his adorable son, Phillip.
We find as the story unfolds that Noah has parented Phillip alone and right or wrong, has never left him alone with anyone else. It’s always been just the two of them. Tempest quickly realizes how Phillip is the mirror image of his dad, never speaking without his affirmation and copying every one of his mannerisms. Phillip has never been to a playground or around other children his age, but Noah doesn’t realize this is not typical until Tempest shares a new perspective with him.
As they navigate becoming roommates and ultimately more, Phillip benefits from this relationship with Tempest as well. He slowly warms up to having a female influence in his life, which obviously affects Noah’s rapidly growing feelings for Tempest.
Whisper of Love has every opportunity to turn into a formulaic and boring, run-of-the mill love story, yet for me, it was never that. It was a sweet, sweet coming together of a man who didn’t know he needed someone until he found her and a woman who found someone she didn’t know she wanted until she found him.
I highly, highly recommend Whisper of Love if you’ve never read a Melissa Foster book or if you’ve read every one. It’s a great standalone book but I give you fair warning: you will probably want to know more about the rest of the Bradens, and beyond, once you dip your toe into the Foster fountain!
Tempest Braden describes herself as ".... careful. Careful in life, careful with her emotions, and careful with herself. Too careful. At closer to thirty than twenty, she was feeling hemmed in by her small hometown and, she had to admit, by her own careful nature." Tempe is ready for a change so she branches out from her music therapy program at the hospital into trying to start children's music groups in Pleasant Hill. She takes an even bigger step by renting a room from Nash, a single father who is raising his son Phillip on a small farm.
Nash is a quiet man with a broken heart from the loss of his brother and the family he once knew. He is an accomplished artist but has set aside his metal and wood sculpting in order to focus on his raising his son. Nash is a man of few words and he feels that he and Phillip get along just fine on their own.
Tempe breezes into their lives and brings with her a breath of fresh air. Her love for children spills out over Phillip and over time, her music begins to soften Nash's hardened heart. I loved watching their relationship grow and seeing Nash give up his guarded and brooding nature. Phillip (or Flip as he calls himself) is adorable and he definitely steals the show at the end of the book.
This addition to the Braden series by Melissa Foster is a great read and a very touching story of healing and of forgiveness.
Meeting Tempe opens Nash’s eyes to what he has been missing from his life even if he didn’t realize it before. She respects him as a father but helps him be able to let little Phillip grow. Separately they are two caring, generous and beautiful people, but together they are a force of selflessness, passion and a love so strong.
Don’t get me wrong, Nash and Tempe heat up the sheets like it is their job, but it is everything else that they do for each other, for Phillip and others, that makes them one of my favorite book couples. This was such a great story, you will instantly be entranced. Another 5 star read by Melissa Foster!
Some of my favorite quotes from the book:
Nash to Tempe:
“I’m becoming more of the man I used to be every day, only better. Thanks to you.”
Tempe to Nash:
“You’re Daddy first, boyfriend second, and that’s one of the reasons I like you so much.”
Philip to Tempe:
“Tempe, Me and Daddy want to marry you. “
“Please marry us and be my mommy.” (And btw, how could anyone with a heart say no to that? )
