Whisper of Warning
A Review by Lexi Connor
When Courtney Glass reluctantly meets her ex-boyfriend, she doesn’t count on watching him get murdered. Neither does she count on all the evidence pointing to her as the killer. But feisty Courtney refuses to give up her freedom without a fight. She struggles to prove her innocence while dodging a killer who wants her silenced forever.
Her only ally is an unlikely one. Will Hodges, a new detective in the homicide division, knows Courtney isn’t completely honest with him, but his gut tells him she’s innocent. Or maybe that’s another part of him talking because he can’t seem to get Courtney out of his mind. He knows he shouldn’t act on their mutual attraction, but Courtney Glass is a hard woman to resist. Soon Will is taking chances with Courtney that could possibly end his career before it even has a chance to get off the ground.
I loved everything about this book. Courtney is such a wonderfully complicated character, a true underdog heroine you’ll love from page one. Trouble finds her wherever she goes, but she never gives up. She makes mistakes and decisions that can drive you insane, but in the end, you’re still anxiously waiting to see her turn her life around. And Will is the absolute perfect man for the troubled heroine. He’s everything she needs and everything this reader adores in a hero. If you’ve liked Laura Griffin’s previous works, don’t miss this latest book. The suspense and romance will grab your heart right from the beginning and not let go until the last word on the last page. Whisper of Warning absolutely gets a spot on my “favorites” shelf!
