Enjoyable, short read. Could have had more character development, but the plot and twists were interesting and kept you wanting to find out who the murderer was.
One thing I didn't like: The cover. No. NO!

Isabelle Donnelly is about to get married. No one in her family approves, but she is determined to go through with it anyway. When she wakes up from her honeymoon night she finds her husband dead. Not sure what to do the first person she calls is her longtime friend Emmett to rescue her. Her husband was poisoned, but was it really meant for Isabelle. Is someone trying to kill her.

Excellent plot. Kept me interested for the first word. I like the authors style and would like to read more by her bu

Let’s go to Isabelle Donnelly’s wedding. A wedding that was
planned very quickly by the bride and groom. Why so fast??
They hardly knew each other.
Then the wedding night….the bride becomes a widow by
morning. What is happening? Why is her new husband dead?
Was he the intended victim or was the bride?
Short enjoyable read. Colorful characters in a puzzling plot.
Keeps you guessing until the end. The twists and turns will keep
you on the edge of your seat.
Thanks to the author for the eBook. My opinion

It’s a good thing I bought Whispers of Murder for free, a promotion from the author Cheryl Bradshaw on twitter, because I wouldn’t have been happy about spending $2 on it. I was aware it was a novella when I purchased it and I had read some of the reviews. The reviews were mixed, some saying that there were bad typos and others that were singing praise. There was an author note saying that originally the wr

I'm never happy about writing negative reviews, but I always have to be honest. The only positive thing I have to say about this book is that the writing itself is fine, aside from some obvious editing issues. Sentence structure is good and the author gets a nice rhythm going. Her writing is easy to read. From there, it all falls apart.

First, I have to comment on the cover. The photo gives me the impression of a historical piece, but this is a modern day story. This issue doesn't affect my ratin

Having read and enjoyed all of the full length novels in the Sloane Monroe series, I was looking forward to seeing how well Ms. Bradshaw would do with a shorter story. Just like the longer selections, this novella keeps the reader guessing until the very end. There are so many twists and turns in the story that to describe any one of them would be too big a spoiler!

All of the characteristics of Ms. Bradshaw' s work that I enjoy are evident here: believable characters the reader can relate to, a
This was a freebie when I downloaded it back in 2012. A quick read which I needed to stay on track with my yearly goal. I thought I had guessed the killer half-way through, but luckily, I didn't. Those are the good points. I did not like the story at all. The whole "mystery" was far-fetched and the way things were handled, were just way off. For instance, what law enforcement officer allows just anyone to search for evidence, and bring it in without donning gloves first??? Really???!! There is a ...more
Not for me. I wanted to drop-kick the heroine. She annoyed me. Emmett continued to come through for her even though she seemed to dense to know she loved him.

Some quotes:
“But I thought the ceremony never finished?”
“He got to the I-now-pronounce-you-man-and-wife part right before your body plummeted to the floor. Leo practically threw himself on top of you to seal the deal with a kiss, and that quack of a pastor allowed it even though you were lying there like Sleeping Beauty.”

A quick but effective little mystery

What a great short story. Well thought out and planned like a great literary ballet! Cheryl Bradshaw has a wonderful creative mind. I know it's not easy to write a complete story that is not too short but still small enough to be a novella. Whispers of Murder had an attention grabbing beginning, suspenseful middle and a climatic finish.
Mar 05, 2012 LadyCalico rated it did not like it
The characters were flat and phony, the plot and murderer predictable, and the police procedures dumb. The author must never have read or watched any good police dramas to have so little idea about law or proper procedure. I quit listing things that were hokey, senseless, and stupid since the task quickly became overwhelming. The stupidity of the police was, however, eclipsed by the stupidity of the civilians. I almost rolled off my chair when the "smart" heroine was depicted as her high school ...more

Very enjoyable short story.

a five star for me is a book I cannot put down-----however, this book was not too detailed to be boring and the content really kept my interest. I definitely recommend this book and thank the author-----i will consider some of her other books.

I didn't really read through the reviews to know this was a novella so I was kind of surprised when I was suddenly at the end. Nice easy read, free on Kindle Unlimited. Look forward to reading the next book next.

Another great story by an amazing author. I tend to figure out the "villain" in most books, but this story kept me guessing until the reveal!

A cute little story. I wish it were longer so I could learn more about the characters and the blooming romance between the heroine and her childhood friend. The plot was predictable, but I liked it because I wasn't ever "confused" like some of these other intense murder-mysteries can be. I hope Ms. Bradshaw will continue on with these characters, build them up more, and explore a fiery romance between the two. Good read, thank you!

It was a pretty okay book. Short read, that's for sure. I started it one day, got half way through it and finished it in an hour the next. It was pretty obvious who the murderer was to me, but you never know.

With such twists and turns the book should have been more enjoyable and it wasn't. It was missing the spark necessary for one to really get attached to the characters.

A young woman's whirlwind romance and quick marriage leads to death and mystery. A short book that could have benefited from a little more thorough editing.

A nice story with a clever ending. Unable to pick the culprit prior to the reveal. Looking to read more from this author.
