Whisper Cape Blog Tour June 18 to June 24




SYNOPSIS


A powerful woman, an extraordinary man, and a maniac who wants to destroy them. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them all in end?

Escape to a world where the impossible becomes possible and sparks ignite.

WHISPER CAPE is a town of secrets and Addison MacKenna soon becomes tangled in a web of them. Plagued with nightmares of her father's sudden and brutal death, Addie struggles with her anguish and refuses to believe his demise was accidental. 

Fighting to shake off one of those devastating early morning nightmares, Addison finds it even harder to escape from the vision of a man lying on the side of the road--a man she may have just killed. When she frantically tries to locate him, he seemingly disappears, just the beginning of strange occurrences in her life. She also cannot ignore the weird sensations in her own body. Suddenly, the impossible seems possible, but is that a blessing or a curse? 

Believing that her continual and worsening nightmares are both the key to her own new abilities and the clue to her father's death, Addie knows she will not rest until she has the answers she craves. As she strives to cope with her new remarkable talents, someone else learns of her abilities--a disgruntled maniacal psychopath with his own agenda that involves eliminating Addie. The only one who can protect her, instruct her in the use of her powers and teach her how to destroy the murderous monster is the same man who makes Addie's heart race and her blood heat with passion. The same man she'd left for dead. 

Cael Sheridan may be arrogant and mysterious but he's also undeniably gorgeous. A member of a secret society, he is sworn to protect the woman he believes to be the daughter of his recently murdered mentor. In the process, he finds it impossible to resist her magnetic sensuality, complicating his efforts to shield and guide her as she learns to manage her newly acquired skills. At the same time, Addison has much to teach him about trust and commitment. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them both in end?


MY REVIEW

The first book is a good start to a new series. Like most first books, it starts with a slow beginning but quickly picks up. 

After her father dies mysteriously, Addie, a 26 year old, begins to have nightmares every night. She has a hard time figuring out what they mean and ties them into the strange note her father had left for her.


Moving to Oregon where her father and aunt grew up, she works in the restaurant Cliff Hanger, located in Whisper Cape. She is introduced into the paranormal world. Suddenly Addie discovers a hidden talent she never knew she had.  With her telekinetic abilities she can control electrical devices.

Cael is on a quest to find a powerful crystal and is associated with a sacred book. He has supernatural skills of his own (teleportation).

When Cael shows up, Addie thinks she has run him over with her truck and is surprised to see him all over town. Once she approaches him and they start talking, they are immediately attracted to one another. When women who look like Addie start showing up dead, Cael feels he must protect her. This gives their romance a chance to heat up.

Throughout the pages, we are introduced to new characters, a secret society with shape shifters among other being. The story has a mixture of romance, lots of sex and action with supernatural/paranormal twists and turns that will keep you guessing as to who the villain really is. The author gives lots of details with vivid descriptions that drew me into the story, making me feel as if I was there with the characters. The story is well plotted and everything is tied together in the end and leaves you knowing exactly what has happened.  A great stand-alone story, I am looking forward to reading the second book in the series to see how the author continues the storyline.




AUTHOR BIO



I daydream often. If I didn't write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play--a dreadful disaster; though not from my writing, of course, I must blame it on the acting.  The craft of writing, although dormant for years, never really left me. Many years later, and with the help of technology, I let my imagination run wild again. Born in a small town in Pennsylvania, I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns. I tend to lean toward the unusual and spooky. I read all genres but I love reading paranormal romance and like writing in that genre. My paranormal playing field delves into a different milieu, abandoning vampires and werewolves, but not discounting them. Someday I might like to write a novel about vamps and those furry creatures. But for now I like the bizarre mixed with romance. A strong hero or heroine confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and capabilities gets my blood running. I live in Northern California with my very romantic husband, my small yippy dog, Riley, and my humungous black cat, Sak√©. My family consists of his and her children; four wonderful sons and one beautiful daughter, six grandchildren and another on the way. My greatest love in life is my family and those large and ever growing holiday dinners. I enjoy traveling. I hate running, but do it once in a while. Reading and writing are my favorite pastimes.
