    A tale of how women change the courses of their lives in response to the men in their lives. A story of lies, redemption and love.

    Whisper Me This is a page turner filled with family secrets! Maisey is a single mother trying to raise her daughter. Maisey's mother is found sick and neglected and her father is a suspect. While dealing with the aftermath, she finds a long buried secret from her mother's past. Kerry Anne King is a new author for me and I will be looking at her other books!

    Whisper Me This was a solid 4 stars for me. An interesting book that centers around a woman named Maisey-who heads to her childhood home after discovering her mom is in the hospital and her dad is in a serious confused mental state. Maisey has much to contend with, including uncovering a family secret that will change her life forever. The big secret wasn’t all that shocking and the book was somewhat slower paced than I liked, but I would still highly recommend it to readers that like fictional

    3.5 stars

    I'm kinda on the fence about whether this is a 3 star or 3.5 star read but since it did hold my interest I will round up. Maisey receives a phone call that her mom is in a coma and her father might be charged with abuse and neglect. She races to her childhood home in Washington with her daughter and attempts to figure out what the heck is going on and why her father was trying to destroy family records. As Maisey digs around for answers she discovers she has a long lost sister.

    Like I said before the book held my interest but I can't say it was the most satisfying read. I hate to say that because the author did attempt to tackle a serious subject but I think the execution was slightly off. The first half of the book worked better than the second half because you are curious about what secrets Maisey's mother is hiding. By the time everything is revealed it almost feels underwhelming. There were parts of the story that I thought were underdeveloped towards the end. I thought the introduction of Tony and his family didn't feel natural although at least there was an interesting backstory there.

    I think the best way to describe this book is it feels like a Lifetime Channel movie. The plot is interesting enough for you to watch, or in this case read, over the course of an afternoon, but it really isn't anything you haven't seen before. I do think some people will connect more with this book than others given the subject matter that is more of a theme in the second half of the book. Overall, it was a decent selection for my free Amazon Kindle First ebook.

    I was speeding through it and expected to really like it, unfortunately it ended up falling a little short of the mark for me.

    In

    Maisey has never quite lived up to her mother's expectations. She has held a series of dead-end jobs, and has never gotten married - two things that her mom desperately wanted for her to change. When Maisey finds out her mom is in a coma and her dad might be charged with abuse and neglect, she goes back to her childhood home with her daughter Elle and must come to terms with her confused father, what to do about her mom, and what she feels are her own shortcomings and failures.

    There is a mystery theme in this book that kept me reading and turning pages. The book switched between Leah's journal (Maisey's mom), Maisey, and a love interest for Maisey - Tony. Tony is holding onto his own guilt and secrets, as well as Maisey finding out she has a sister that her mom made her believe was a figment of her imagination. Slowly the story unravels, both the story of Maisey's mom and Tony's story, and it was definitely a slow burner of a story overall.

    The biggest thing for me was that I wasn't a huge fan of Maisey and didn't really find myself rooting for her, at least not at first. She seemed incredibly flighty and childlike - even though she has a 12 year old daughter she is supposed to be raising - but we find out there is a reason for the way she acts. I did think she redeems herself towards the end, even though I wanted to smack her over the head a few times to stand up for herself. I think this was a pretty realistic description though so you can't really be mad at her too much. She is dealing with some pretty tough sh*t in this book.

    Which brings me to the next thing, so many trigger warnings for this book and they all deal with abuse. Verbal abuse, physical abuse, etc. all directed at females or children. I have to admit it was a pretty tough book to read even though the author tries to infuse hope into it. The end is more uplifting than the majority of the book, and I found myself in tears more than once. Just know it is a very tough read despite the hopeful bits.

    Final Thought: There was just something about this book that didn't sit quite right with me, but hell if I can articulate what it is. The mysteries that unravel just produce even more pain, and although I felt slightly better at the ending, the overall feel of this novel was pretty melancholy to me. Well written, but read at your own risk! I think I just found it too sad and frustrating, but that's just me and other people will probably really like this book and the message it delivers.

    Amazon First read, July novel. Story of hope's and dreams of teenager, growing up in dysfunctional family. Abused since birth. Good plot, but I missed or author missed to convey me the point she is making. Liked author's writing style.

    I guess this genre is just not my cup of tea. Reading this is a kin to watching a sappy Life-Time or Hallmark channel movie. The plot line was so predictable and the stereotypical characters where so one-dimensional and flat. I couldn't connect with any of the characters and eventually even grew to dislike them! Please, who would let the nosy neighbor make your mom's funeral arrangements? Who would go to a concert the evening prior, and then show up late to your own mom's funeral? And then sit t

Please, who would let the nosy neighbor make your mom's funeral arrangements? Who would go to a concert the evening prior, and then show up late to your own mom's funeral? And then sit there being bored and preoccupied during the funeral. The relationship between Maisey and daughter Elle was so not right. Putting your 12 year old into adult situations time after time, relying on a 12 year old as if they were an adult, letting a 12 year old call her own shots and yours. The mother daughter roles are reversed here. I also didn't enjoy the many slams and put downs on Christianity. Everything about this book was just, for me, out of whack! Overall I found it hard to swallow, I just couldn't buy into the characters. I read this because it was free and the description sounded like it could have been really good.

    For Pete's sake.

    I knew this book was about all sorts and types of domestic violence. I once upon a time lived through several abusive relationships, so I wanted to see how this book handled it. (It was a free book, thank heavens.)

    Major issues.

    1) Do NOT have a character come to bury her mother, take care of a father with the beginning states of dementia, and by day two talk about your tingly bits feeling something for someone you just met a day ago. Girl, you're crazy.

    2) Do not allow your 12-yea

    I knew this book was about all sorts and types of domestic violence. I once upon a time lived through several abusive relationships, so I wanted to see how this book handled it. (It was a free book, thank heavens.)

    Major issues.

    1) Do NOT have a character come to bury her mother, take care of a father with the beginning states of dementia, and by day two talk about your tingly bits feeling something for someone you just met a day ago. Girl, you're crazy.

    2) Do not allow your 12-year old, however precocious, to know too much. Or for that matter, be the only one with a grain of common sense. Just don't. That's not what kids are for. Find a therapist.

    3) ONE Google search. Just ONE, and you found a long lost family member? GTFOH. I can't get that kind of result looking for a decent restaurant. Convenient. And stupid. Lost respect for your storytelling there.

    4) Since the new-found family member is a bit of a star (ie, has money to get the hell out of Dodge), DO IT. This particular character is no shrinking violet, is surrounded by big burly guys in her payroll....just head for Nashvile, do not pass go, do not play in any more Thai restaurants. Speaking of which, Thai and Country Western? I'll take my Pad Thai to go. Good lord.

    The book got two stars because I got hooked it a particular storyline and had to figure it out, which I did, as it was a bit trite. I also enjoyed some of the smart-assery the main character do it out.

    Do not read this.
