    I love a book with a good plot, great characters and added suspense! This book by Jennifer Youngblood has all of that. And more. I loved every bit of it. The story starts out with Lina Chasing. It’s her birthday and her mother in law throws her a large party. But…there’s something off with Lina. And her mother-in-law obviously does not like her.

And her mother-in-law obviously does not like her. I loved how the author uses this first scene to set up the plot of the book. Lina disappears, leaving her ex-husband and the hero of the book, Talon Chasing, the suspect in her disappearance. Effie is our heroine. She comes to Honeysuckle Island to renovate the hotel that Talon’s grandfather built. Little did she know the trouble she was getting herself into. I loved Effie. She is kind and sweet to those around her. Except Talon. I really loved the scene where they met, but didn’t realize they met. It made me laugh. I liked Talon too. Even though the reader is unsure of how he fits into Lina’s disappearance. He seemed to be a genuinely good guy. This is one of those books I didn’t want to put down. I loved the suspense of it all. It’s so good! I can’t wait for the next one by this author. I was sent an e-copy of Chasing Whispers as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.

    Chilling I was so sad to see the Romeo family come to an end and was absolutely delighted to see this new series infuse that beloved family within its pages. I love a good romantic suspense and Youngblood has perfected the craft with this one. Effie is out on her own with a major design client and that first meet cute was hilariously adorable! Talon is charming and lovable, but he's got mysteries enshrouding him and his family.

Talon is charming and lovable, but he's got mysteries enshrouding him and his family. The vibe was creepy, yet sweet; terrifying, yet romantic; chilling, yet fun. I flew through the pages and enjoyed it all. The formula was magnificent and I didn't see some of the twists and turns coming, which reminded me of a frightful roller coaster that shan't be named that always leaves me shaking in my shoes, yet wanting to go again. This series is off to a great start and I'm eagerly awaiting more of Honeysuckle Island and it's too-close-for-comfort residents. Content: mild+ moments of peril/fear; mild romance; mild religion *I received a complimentary copy. All opinions expressed are my own and were voluntarily given.*

    First, I recommend readers keep a character log as you read. Why? If my own log is accurate, there were 58 members of the cast of characters. Without a character log, you may find it difficult to keep the characters straight as you read. I am also pleased to note that, with this review, I have now reviewed 31 stories by Jennifer Youngblood and awarded 5-Stars each time. This offering represents clean romance at its best – with a bit of intrigue thrown in for good measure. Ms. Youngblood captured First, I recommend readers keep a character log as you read. Why?

This offering represents clean romance at its best – with a bit of intrigue thrown in for good measure. Ms. Youngblood captured my interest from the start and kept me involved all the way to the end. In fact, I was so involved that, if there were editorial errors, I didn’t see any. She even concluded this story by leaving me thinking, “I wonder what happened to…” thus creating a great set-up for the next book in the series. If you enjoy clean romance, you will have difficulty finding an author more capable of satisfying your appetite than Jennifer Youngblood. Five-Stars.

    Effie has lots of ideas and plans to update the hotel on Honeysuckle Island. When Talon's dog jumped on Effie just before she was to meet with her powerful client, Effie thought he was rude. At her meeting with the client, Effie find out that she not only has to work with Talon, but that he is her client's son. Talon finds Effie very attractive and wants to get to know her better. Even though Effie finds Talon equally attractive, Effie would like to keep things professional. She is also concerne Effie has lots of ideas and plans to update the hotel on Honeysuckle Island.

I received a free copy of this ebook from the author. This is my honest and voluntarily given review. This is the start of a terrific connected series. This book is enjoyable as a standalone, but the book ends with a clue to a mystery that will lead into the next book. I love this romantic suspense book that I didn't want to put down. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

    This book was so good! What a great way to start a series! Jennifer Youngblood has done it again. She is so awesome at suspense. I loved her twists and turns and I loved her use of foreshadowing. It was a great book, as a Kindle unlimited reader this will be one I buy!

    I have no idea how this got so many good reviews. The writing was juvenile and sappy and the story predictable. No one ever just laughs in this book - rather laughter gurgles in their throats. Would not recommend to anyone over 10 years old.

    Rollercoaster of Mystery, Suspense, and Romance Usually from the start of a book I can tell how well I’m going to like it. I like for a story to grab me and pull me into the world the author has created. This book did that in two ways. One is the suspense and intrigue from the prologue that dates back a year before present day. It puts you on edge and has you guessing about so many different things. Then the story picks up with the spicy yet still sweet Effie, who we all fell in love with during Rollercoaster of Mystery, Suspense, and Romance Usually from the start of a book I can tell how well I’m going to like it.

Then the story picks up with the spicy yet still sweet Effie, who we all fell in love with during the Romeo book series. Right off the bat her eagerness and hopefully attitude towards her new job just pulls you in. Plus the initial explosive interactions with Talon just had me turning page after page as if I didn’t have to work that day! So hard to put this story down. There was so much intrigue and twists I loved it! The book ends in a happily together moment but the mysteries continue on with the next in the series. I’m not one for big cliff hanger endings so I’m glad that the main characters, Talon and Effie, did have a resolution at the end even if the other threads of the mystery will still be unraveling through the series. Rating: PG, clean

    I love this book! Effie Smith is the youngest daughter of Knox Romeo from the Romeo series. She finishes interior design school and lands a dream job of renovating a hotel on Honeysuckle Island. On her way to the interview, a dog jumps up on her spilling a strawberry sundae all over her white pants and trendy blouse. The owner is very apologetic but Effie is furious that her perfect outfit for her interview has been ruined. It doesn't help that the owner is a very handsome man to whom Effie feel I love this book!

It doesn't help that the owner is a very handsome man to whom Effie feels immediately attracted. After chewing him out, she heads to the hotel for her interview after changing her clothes into something much less suitable. When the manager is late and joins the meeting, it is Talon Chasing, the owners' oldest son and owner of the errant dog. The plot moves swiftly and the romance is sweet but volatile. I can't wait to read the other books in the series.

    This was a great romance/mystery. When Talon and Effie meet itvdoes not go over well, she is not happy with his dog or him. When she finds out they will be working together she is flabbergasted. What is even worse is that he is rich and a flirt. Though she tries to remain aloof he wins her over. But with the family against them, jealous woman and his missing ex-wife things are very complicated. When strange and threatening things start taking place they must figure out who is behind it before so This was a great romance/mystery.

    Suspenseful Christian Romance This story will grab you at the beginning, leaving you dying to know what happened and how the mystery will unravel. I liked the two main characters. Both Talon and Effie have more depth to them than first meets the eye, and the romance was toe-curling sweet but also clean. I didn’t expect the Christian elements to the book, and while they were nonexistent during the first part, they became more and more apparent as the story unfolded.

    What a terrific way to tie up one series and lead into a new one. I fell in love with Honeysuckle Island with all of it's charm and mystery. I felt like I was right there with the characters enjoying the fragrant flowers and beautiful beach. Effie and Talon are terrific together. I love her spunk and his persistence. The suspense kept me quickly turning the pages looking forward to more. Youngblood found a good balance between resolving this story and leading the reader into the next story.

    The first chapter seemed a bit wordy and not very cohesive. My first reading of this author, Jennifer Youngblood. Luckily I stuck with it, there after the book was well written, intriguing. It had romance, mystery, well-fleshed out characters, the readers learn to love or hate. The challenge is to see if we can figure out some of the plots, before exposed.. That was fun. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.

    The Conniving Ex Wife Jennifer Youngblood combines suspense with romance on Honeysuckle Island. Effie has been hired to renovate the Oliver Hotel. The day Effie lands on the island to meet Madeleine, who is the owner of the hotel, she meets up with disaster. What mystery surrounds the manager of the hotel, Talon? Did he actually murder his ex wife as the tabloids and some local people say? Such a well written novel with vivid characterizations.

    So good!! I love the continuation of the Romeo family!! Effie and Talon are so sweet! I love the "chance" meeting with Cujo and the intrigue of Lina. This was so well written, but I wouldn't expect anything less from a Jennifer Youngblood novel. I received an advanced copy of this book from the author, but I am voluntarily sharing my honest opinion of a great book. So good!! I love the continuation of the Romeo family!!

    Intense I love the tension and the drama in Chasing Whispers. I love that Effie is learning to stand up for herself. I like that Talon wanted to protect her but was willing to do what she wanted. There were some interesting twists in this story, some I guessed, but many I did not. Go read it - unless you can’t stand the suspense.

    Hmmmm Disappointed Or Not....still thinking! But waiting to start the next book. One of my favorite authors and I am stubborn to finish what I start and I am glad did! It tends to drag a bit extremely descriptive so it was like reading a tutorial in parts full Of tons of info that I didn't really need to know...if you decide to read, read all way to the end!!

    Chasing Whispers I loved reading about a young woman who was starting her first job as an interior designer and on her first big job. She arrived on Honeysuckle Island at the Oliver Hotel which she was doing the renovation on only to fall in love with the oldest son of the hotel owner. This is my review and mine alone.

    Unexpectedly more about the Romeo family I enjoyed this book very much. When I had read all the Romeo family series I found I would miss all my new friends. It was nice to revisit the family a little. Good book, good story line, a fun read. Highly recommended. Read the Romeo series first if you have not.

    romantic suspense Light and breezy, usual cliffhanger ending for a series. Only four stars because nothing really resolved and prologue made the hero look sinister in an obvious misdirection. Hero and heroine too vanilla. Heroine’s reaction to dog spilling ice cream disappointing. Both fall in love to quickly for having such terrible relationships

    I really enjoyed this suspenseful romance. I'm not usually a fan of cliffhangers but since the author is such a favorite I can let it slide. I loved Effie and Talon's chemistry.

    Intriguing Really enjoyed this story. It kept me intrigued and actually had me guessing about the culprit. Figured one out but missed the main one. The story gives suspense, love, conflict, and family togetherness. Serenely my interest. One of Jennifer's best. Intriguing Really enjoyed this story.

    Enjoyable Read I enjoyed reading about Effie and Talon on Honeysuckle Island. I liked that the romance was well balanced by the mystery and suspense. The characters leapt off the pages and were believable. I look forward to reading more about the island and the people.

    Kind of boring It really doesn’t do anything to keep me engaged and wanting to read more. It was just enough that I did finish the book. Most of it was pretty unrealistic and writing 101 in my opinion. Probably won’t read the next in the series.
