My romance book reviews of Whisper To Me follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
I found Whisper To Me engaging and enjoyable. Due to the length of short stories and novella, authors can not develop the in-depth characterization and plotting as in a novel. However, Hamilton crafted a short book of 55 pages, filled with action, drama, romance, and a solid complete story-line.
