I can remember purchasing this book on my Kindle. I was looking for a romantic suspense, and I picked this one because of the good reviews on Amazon, and because I loved the cover. I totally judge a book by it's cover, and I have a thing for book covers with houses or cabins. And then it sat on my Kindle forever unread. I'm kicking myself for that now, because I finished the book yesterday and absolutely loved it. Every single thing about it. Courtney, the main heroine was badass. Will, the main ...more
Whisper of Warning
4.5 Stars

Courtney Glass is in over her head. Following the murder of her ex-boyfirend, she must stay one step ahead of the police who see her as the prime suspect, the killer who wants her dead and the sexy detective who is convinced of her innocence but still thinks she’s hiding something. Can Courtney clear her name and stay alive long enough to figure out her attraction to Detective Will Hodges?

Courtney is really obnoxious in Thread of Fear - spoiled, selfish and trashy, whi

4.5 stars. This is mostly a mystery. It’s special because of oddities, unexpected events, and interesting characters.

Courtney is a hairdresser. She has a brief affair with David until she discovers he is married and breaks up with him. Six months later they meet in a park, each one thinks the other initiated the meeting. A killer shows up, wraps Courtney's hand around a gun and shoots David. He then tries to shoot Courtney, but she gets away. Will is the police detective assigned to

Whew! I'm still working on getting my breath back and heart rate down. "Whisper of Warning" is Laura Griffin's latest and a zinger of a romantic suspense novel. The action starts off with the first scene, slowly picks up momentum, and then BAM! You're off and running and it doesn't really stop until the very end!

Courtney's past, and even her recent actions, make her a very good candidate for serious counseling. She's impulsive and excitable, and doesn't really trust anyone except her sister. Whe
I like to think of myself as a hard-to-please critic when it comes to my reviews of romance books. For a book in this particular genre to receive a 5-star rating from me, it has to be more than just good. If you love a romantic suspense with loveable and believable lead characters, look no further, because Whisper of Warning is all that and more.
This one kept me reading far too late into the night and biting my fingernails. Nicely done Laura Griffin!

I love Laura Griffin. She is now on my list of authors I want to read everything they write. Hot romance, head scratching mystery and the set up of the Tracers series. Characters from book #1 make appearances, but not knowing their backstories doesn't detract from this plot.

Courtney is the screw up younger sister of Fiona from -----. She bounces from man to man trying to find the love she never had as a child, for one reason. She is also trying like crazy to put her life on a better path. She h

I'm late to discover Ms. Griffin's books and going back and trying to catch up on all of her earlier works. Once again, Ms Griffin is a fit for my favorite genre, romantic suspense. I really enjoyed the plot of this story and didn't want to put the book down. Our H, Will Hodges, was the strong silent type which I really like. I liked how he struggled with his feelings for our h and his duty as a cop. She was a suspect/person of interest and I liked how he believed in her innocence and fought to ...more
I wasn't really expecting to enjoy this one much after the first few chapters -- I couldn't quite not be annoyed with Courtney for a duration. I didn't care for her much from the first book, and as I had stated before, I started reading this Glass Sisters two-book series because it is supposed to be a lead-in to the Tracers series that I'm interested in. Her personality hadn't changed much from the impulsive, reckless, frustration that I had found her to be from the first book, but seeing things ...more

Finally got around to reading "Whisper Of Warning", the second book by Laura Griffin involving the Glass sisters. Wasn't sure I wanted to read this because in the first book, "Thread Of Fear", Courtney Glass came off as a self-absorbed moocher who needed to grow the hell up. Well, guess what. She grew up. And she wasn't as bad/detestable as the first book set her up to be. In fact, I ended up really liking her, faults and all.

The book starts off with a bang (literally)...Courtney's married ex-bo

For my second book in my Reading Through the RITAs adventure, I read Whisper of Warning by Laura Griffin. It was a romantic suspense novel that should have been a bit more engaging than it actually was. According to Amazon, it was reviewed highly, and it won the Romantic Suspense category of the RITAS. Yet, for some reason, I found my mind wandering each time I picked up the book. Perhaps the fault was mine. Too late, I realized that it was the second book of a trilogy, so I wasn't as invested i ...more

A satisfying enough read. 4 stars may be overly generous. Trying to put my finger on what is lacking in the romance portion of the Laura Griffin's I have read. I believe the characters...especially the men but the women, as well...are too emotionally unavailable. There is no 'big understanding' of a relationship until the final HEA reveal. It's a bit of a stretch for me to get the endpoint without the lead up, but what do I know?! Lol. The case was interesting enough with some twists thrown in. ...more

I did not expect Courtney to grow on me, and I mis-pegged Nathan as the male lead. Will was a charming replacement, and more than made up for my uncertain reception of the heroine. The mystery side of WHISPER OF WARNING was a little harder to swallow, but Griffin legitimately had a challenge as an author, as Courtney doesn't have any professional reason to get mixed up in a crime (where Fiona did).
Feb 11, 2015 Amy rated it it was amazing
This was a good intrigue book with lots of twists and turns. As Will and Courtney try to figure out who is setting her up for murder (and fighting their attraction for one another), the possible suspects and clues keep mounting, as do the attempts on Courtney's life. I like that Will & Courtney are both strong characters with a lot in common as they try to deny and fight their chemistry. They both have trust issues and it ultimately takes a leap of faith from themselves as well as help from ...more

A fantastic book. Ms Griffin continues to exceed all expectations and this is by far the best book yet to come from this talented author. Courtney Glass is one of the best characters I've read in years and is memorable as she is admirable. This is not a book to miss!

I'm loving this Glass Sisters series. I really did not figure out the mystery ahead of time and loved that. Love both Fiona and Courtney, but I really loved Courtney and Will! I hope there's more....
The second book in the Glass Sisters series by Laura Griffin. A very suspenseful and exciting read. Laura Griffin is quickly climbing up on my favorite authors list.
The plot itself was good, but I had a hard time liking Courtney in the first part of this series and in this book she didn't really grow on me, even though she seemed to have 'lost' her egocentricity. However, she became a TSTL heroine, hence a lower rating and making it my least favorite book by Laura Griffin so far.
On the positive side, in the end detective Will shoots a suspect in the leg instead of killing them, which is a nice change from all the 'shoot to kill first, don't bother asking qu
This book was just OK for me. This is the 2nd book in the Glass Sisters series by Griffin. Both books can and are designed to be read as stand alones, at least that what the author says. Anyway, I like the 1st book a little bit better, the plot was more believable.

This was the story of Courtney Glass who witnesses the murder of her married, ex-boyfriend and is then targeted by the police as the main suspect. The ex-boyfriend was a wealthy lawyer and in the previous novel Courtney trashed his ca

Courtney wasn’t like a lot of the other heroines (professional, poised, highly educated) in Griffin’s books. When we first met her in Thread of Fear she was kind of a wild child, screw-up bumming off her sister Fiona. In this book she’s trying to change and stand on her own two feet, but she‘s barely managing to eeeeek out a living as a hairstylist. At least she‘s finally seen the light since she recently discovered her rich lawyer boyfriend has been 2-timing her…with his wife no less…the nerve ...more

Though this book is a RITA Award winner for best romantic suspense, it skews a little more toward the suspense side but has enough sexual chemistry throughout to keep fans of both elements pleased. Griffin, a former journalist, writes in short sentences and paragraphs that offer rich detail at a rapid pace with a heavy dose of snappy dialogue. Readers quickly know they are in for a fast ride as they are catapulted into the action, with the protagonist witnessing the murder and nearly losing her ...more

Whisper of Warning by Laura Griffin
Romantic Suspense- March 31st, 2009
4 stars

Laura Griffin is a best selling suspense author for a reason. Her books have sharp and clever writing with well-thought out plots that are easy to read. In her latest release, Laura Griffin brings back a secondary character, Courtney. Courtney has had a history of getting into trouble. But this time is really isn’t her fault!

Courtney is upset. She doesn’t want to see her lying ex-boyfriend. She wishes she made bett

The coldblooded murder of her ex-boyfriend in her car by someone who then tries to kill her and make it a murder-suicide scenario is the start of a hellish time for Courtney Glass. She thought she was done with her ex when she found out he'd been lying to her and was a married man from her hometown instead of a single lawyer from out of town. The one thing he didn't lie about was that he was working on a big case and that's where the troubles start for Courtney. She ends up under invest
5 stars +++ I stayed up all night with this book, it was a very fast moving romantic suspense. I haven't read a book in a while that I was completely unable to put down to get some sleep. The characters were so well written and the story was believable that left you out on he edge.

The heroine, Courtney Glass, was not your typical h. She had a bad reputation, came off as a bimbo, but was a very strong character who was trying to pull her life together. She gets set up in the murder of her x-bo

I read this months ago, and I can still remember exactly what it was about. Some of the little details and nuances are as fresh in my mind as if I'd read this yesterday.

Courtney was the exact opposite of everything a typical heroine is. She's terrible. She's loud and in-your-face and her behavior is rather trashy at times. She swears and blatantly pursues the hero. She's secure in the knowledge that he wants her, and doesn't doubt herself or put him on a pedestal. She's a messy drunk, and has no

What a good book. As the sequel to Thread of Fear, I went into this book with mixed emotions. One, I was very excited to read it because I wanted to see Fiona and Jack again because I so liked those characters in the first book, and two, I wanted to see how the flighty Courtney turned out. But I'm always afraid that the sequel will not hold up to the first one. This sequel was as good as, if not better than the first!

Courtney Glass only agreed to meet her married ex-fling David at the park to get him to stop his constant text messaging and hash things out once and for all. When he finally shows up she's pissed. It's hot and humid and he made her wait when he's the one who wanted to meet. When he finally gets into her car he's acting all annoyed and accusing her of harassment.

Courtney Glass is in big trouble. She is being convicted of killing her lover John David Alvin. Courtney says she is innocent but the facts are stacked pretty high against Courtney. The gun that killed Mr. Alvin is registered to Courtney. You can’t get any clearer evidence than that. Office Will Hodges wants to believe Courtney but he also knows that he has to be sharp on his feet. Just because he feels something for Ms. Glass does not mean she is innocent. In fact she could be a cold hard kille ...more

Great mix of Romance and suspense (one few authors are really capable of creating), that makes me eager to get copies of all her other books…

I didn't always like the heroine as a person, but she was well written, and consistent all the way through the novel….I loved the Hero! While he was big and tough and had all those other good hero qualities, he didn't seem to be a run of the mill alpha hero either… and the suspense was fast paced and keeps you reading even when you're

I've taken a somewhat cynical approach to reading now, and it's making me a cautious reader. Either the guy's gonna do somethiong stupid or they girl's gonna do something stupid, or they both will; either way, one of them will find a way to mess up their budding relationship, and it won't be resolved until the very end.

Laura Griffin's Whisper of Warning has the tension of the uncertainty of Will and Courtney's relationship, but thankfully, had none of the silliness of usual romance stuff that dr
