Ejected from her privileged life, Rosetta comes to Noble Island with a broken heart and shaken faith. She is enticed by hope in the arms of the dark and brooding Simon Hale, but people keep dying at Shadow Bay Hall, and Rosetta hears something in the walls. Simon Hale finds the reclusive Rosetta both beautiful and intriguing, but when she seeks out the truth behind Shadow Bay Hall's unexplained happenings, he is torn between hope for the future and his need to protect a dangerous secret. With dark forces determined to keep truth at bay, Rosetta and Simon fight to uncover lies that imprison the island with fear. His wife's death, tangled memories, a Romany feud, Rosetta must decide if she is strong enough to discover what's behind The Whispers on Shadow Bay.

psthib4 Stars Out Of 5Oh My Word....June 17, 2014psthibAs Marketing Associate for Pelican Book group I have access to books at all time and usually carry a box around for marketing purposes. However, I am under no obligation to read much less review them. Even when I do read, I hesitate to review based on the "presumed" bias and with the quality of books Pelican produces, bias is highly possible. That said, I will not review a title I don't like.
So, when I first opened Whispers on Shadow Bay my first thought was.... ..."Aw, it's first person."
Not only am I not a fan of first person, I don't read much suspense or mystery because I normally figure out the culprit long before the story has ended. But after my immediate objection, I thought, "Just start reading."
And am I ever glad I did. This story grabbed me from the beginning and never let go.
Raquel Byrnes has crafted a story filled with mystery and intrigue and just enough romance to satisfy without taking away from the overall plot.

A completely satisfying read!August 16, 2013TellNJasmineMontanaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I had thought the Gothic genre had died out, or nearly so, years ago. Boy, was a wrong! Raquel Byrnes has it down perfectly!
Written in the tradition of British author, Mary Stewart, Whispers On Shadow Bay is everything a Gothic Romance should be, with the added bonus that the heroine and hero are Christians.
I had wanted to read this book when I first heard about it so when I got the chance I bought it. It didn't disappoint at all. It was everything I had hoped it would be.
The best single-word to describe Whispers On Shadow Bay is 'Satisfying'. Every part of this story is satisfying. At the end of an Agatha Christie, Mary Stewart, or L.M. Montgomery book you come away with a self-satisfied, even smug, feeling. Even though, as the reader, you had no part in the crafting of the story you still get that feeling. Of course the accompanying feeling is also that let-down when you know the story is done and you can't visit with those characters any longer. I suppose that is why we come back and read and re-read our favorite stories. Whispers On Shadow Bay is one that will definitely be on my re-read list.
Whispers On Shadow Bay has it all. A beautiful heroine who is both strong and yet needs the dashing, brooding hero. An old fashioned murder, who killed the hero's first wife? Spooky mystery, who is Lucien and who put the ghost line at the cemetery? Jealousy, just what is Cousin Phillip's angle in all this anyway? Gypsies, did they have ties to all this and why do some of them hate Simon? And all of this set on a storm swept gorgeous island off the coast of Washington.
Will Rosetta stand by Simon and his daughter? Can Simon protect his daughter and the woman he loves? Will the two of them be able to solve the murder and put the past behind them so they can build a future together? I suggest finding a copy of Whispers On Shadow Bay ASAP if you want to find out
Mystery, Danger, Romance, and some lessons in doing what is right no matter what make this book a definite must read. I am anxiously awaiting Secrets At Crescent Point, the next book in the Noble Island Mystery series.

touchdownOHAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Her best book yetMay 20, 2013touchdownOHAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved this book. I have read this author's first three suspense books and loved them. While reading reviews for this book someone compared it to a Victoria Holt book. I grew up reading Victoria Holt. I would have to say I agree with that reviewer. Byrnes has written a modern day gothic Christian Fiction that reads like a Victoria Holt book. I didn't think it was possible to find that type of book today. I was really into this book. I loved the writing, the characters, the big creaky mansion and the suspense. I could not quit turning pages. I hope this author continues writing this style of book.
