indie romance fangirl / vibes based reviewer sharing the books I love

Whispers of You by Catherine Cowles releases tomorrow and what a great start to the new series it is! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is a small town, second chance, romantic suspense romance between Wren and Holt, who were high school sweethearts until a tragedy tore them apart and sent Holt running. We pick up the story a decade later when Holt returns to town to make amends with those he left behind, especially Wren and his family (whom we will be receiving stories for!)

The romance itself is very sweet, the two never stopped loving each other but Wren has to decide if she can trust Holt not to leave again. Thankfully for Holt, Wren is a lot more forgiving than me.

The effects of what happened a decade ago are still lingering, both in the couple and all the supporting characters and I thought it was a great exploration of grief in a community. The suspense portion kept me on the edge of my seat, though I did guess part of it early on I don’t think it was super obvious at all.

It really sets up the rest of the series well, and I’m very excited for all the Hartley sibling’s stories (especially Roan and Lawson!)
