"Discrimination is a horrible reality. People are afraid of what they don't understand."

This was a really fun read. Out of everything, including the plot, characters, and romantic development between Addie and Cael, my favorite thing about this story was the setting. From the first chapter, everything felt so vivid. The town and the surroundings were very eerie, very atmospheric. The author did a great job at creating an unsettling mood throughout. I always felt what Addie was feeling--uncertain

“Grab your jacket.” He wrapped his arm around her, pulled her in close, cupped her chin in his hand, and tilted her head up toward his, their lips inches apart. “Do you trust me?” His voice was husky, his breath warm and her knees were about to turn to jelly.

“Yes, I think so. Do I have a choice?”

“No. Close your eyes,” he whispered.

The first book is a good start to a new series. Like most first books, it starts with a slow beginning but quickly picks up.

After her father dies mysteriously, Addie, a 26 year old, begins to have nightmares every night. She has a hard time figuring out what they mean and ties them into the strange note her father had left for her.

Quick plot run-down: Addison MacKenna has recently moved back to the town where she was born, Whisper Cape. While rushing to get to work one day, she hits a man... or so she thinks! Once she gets out of her truck, he has completely disappeared. After that her life is all sorts of strange--she finds she has a new ability, the vanishing almost accident victim returns, and someone is out to kill her (the same someone who murdered her father).

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION'S Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

I was contacted by a troupe that I work with to do a promotional Event for Regan Walsh in July. I had never heard of her before, nor had I heard about Whisper Cape. Trying to be the good book website admin and book promoter, I went out and bought the book on Amazon and when a gap opened in my schedule, decided to sit down and read it. I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN!

In my honest opinion, this was one of the best new Urban Fantasy books I

Cael Sheridan shows up in Whisper Cape as a Private Investigator, to find who is murdering the women in Whisper Cape, however in reality he was sent from the Sectorium to find Eidolon, who he believes is responsible for the murders around town along with the murder of Risteard MacKenna, Addison's father.

Addison keeps running into Cael, she's immediately attracted to him but feels he's a bit on the arrogant side. Soon after meeting Cael, Addison finds out that her father lived a whole other life

What a fantastic read! The setting is Whisper Cape, Oregon. The visualizations and scenery the author painted was a combination of beautiful and eerie. I was floored at how I escaped to this creepy seaside town. It was so vivid that I envisioned myself standing along the seaside cliffs, an eerie fog rolling in, looking down at the ocean waves crashing on the rocks. At times, you felt what the character was feeling.

After the mysterious death of her father, our heroine, Addie is havi

I really enjoyed this book and loved Cael and Addison. I didn't want to put this book down once I started it. I won my copy in a competition run by Anna Dase on her blog and had not heard of the author before this. It is definetly for older readers as there are sex scenes in the book which makes it unsuitable for younger readers but it had great characters a good plot and was quite fastpaced. There were a couple of twists throughout it and at the end as well. I would definetly pick up another of ...more

Addison MacKenna is having devastating nightmares, and not just a few. She suspects the reason might have something to do with her late father's death, but has no other evidence that she possesses any other specific cause. From the opening scene describing Addie's reaction to her most recent nightmare, "Hot and tingly blood pulsed through her body...

Along for the move is Addison's Aunt Maia, who helped raise her from infancy because Addison's mother died shortly after giving birth. With the exception of the nightmares life seems to be moving forward for Addison, that is until a str

I really enjoyed this story! It kept me on the edge of my seat not knowing what was going to happen next. The author did an excellent job of grabbing my attention and keeping it. She was able to develop characters that were relatable.

Addison is haunted by nightmares since her dad was murdered. Addison and her aunt moved from New York to Whisper Cape on Oregon's coast to start a new life and hopefully put the nightmares behind them. She accidentally meets Cael who is hunting the man who murdered

I loved Whisper Cape. It was different for one. I'm totally thinking about kidnapping Cael and hiding him in my closet. I'm sure I can convince him to stay.

Whisper Cape had the perfect amount of suspense mixed with romance. I fell into the story easily and dreaded the inevitable ending. It had me flipping pages until way past my bed time.

All the characters were believable which made the story solid and hard to put down. 5 stars from me! Highly recommended!

Whisper Cape is billed as a Sensual Paranormal Romance. Sounds very interesting. And it is.

The story concerns Addison “Addie” MacKenna. Growing up as a normal child there was nothing unusual about her. But after the recent death of her father she began to have nightmares. Every night. The nightmares seemed to be trying to tell her something, but she couldn't figure them out. The only concrete thing she had of her father was a single note he had written shortly before he died. It said simply, “A

I thought this book was well written from the very first page. I liked Addie right away, and I found myself really wanting to live in the town of Whisper Cape. Her nightmares were vivid and frightening, and left me feeling the same shock when she woke up as I do when I’ve had a nightmare of my own. I love an honest main character, and Addie was a very genuinely good person who had a lot of bad things happen to her, but still held herself to a standard. I was impressed with how she wrestled with ...more

Addison, or Addie for short, is a great heroine that I loved from the minute I started reading. The poor girl is haunted by nightmares after her father's violent death. Instead of normal recurring nightmares, she is experiencing progressive dreams that change each night and go further into the nightmare like a bad movie. She is even more rattled when she almost hits a man in the middle of the road. When she starts experiencing some freaky abilities she is not sure who she should trust to tell he ...more

Whisper Cape – Genre – Adult /Mature YA

Addie is 26 yrs old when her father Professor Mackenna dies. Adidie’s Aunt Maia decides to move back to Oregon and the small town Addie’s father and she grew up in. There Addie works at the only decent restaurant in Whisper Cape and makes friends with the owner – Gerry, Cook – Jared, waitress – Darcy (aka - double D), and Bartender - Nick.

A simmering 4-star paranormal romantic thriller.

This is really a good story and a great foundation for a new series. It is a murder mystery with paranormal elements. Addie MacKenna is grieving after losing her father under mysterious circumstances. She and her aunt move to Whisper Cape where her aunt and father grew up. There is a serial murder on the loose and all the victims have a remarkable resemblance to Addie. Enter Cael Sheridan, a warrior and protector with supernatural skills. He introd

I sometimes have trouble getting into romance novels, but I love fantasy and paranormal suspense. In Whisper Cape, Regan Walsh combines the two genres in a way that held my interest all the way through. Though the lovers, Addie and Cael, are predictably attractive and gifted with amazing powers, they have quirks and flaws that make them human and likable. The sex scenes are wonderful, never crude or coy. Once or twice they stall the action more than I would like, but I'm guessing many readers wi ...more

Here is one of those books where the cover can be deceiving. When I first got this book I really didn't look much further that the cover and that it was in my genre of reading. Where I thought I would be reading a bit of mystery/romance, I got much more. Whisper Cape is a dark, edgy, suspenseful read that is captivating from page one. With so many twists and turns within a story, you are compelled to continue to find out more secrets hidden within this town. Nobo

I picked this book up because I'm a huge fan of romantic suspense. The fact that it had a paranormal element didn't hurt either. After reading the first page, I knew Whisper Cape would be a winner. The story opens with Addie waking up from a recurring nightmare. My mind instantly filled with questions that needed answers. From Addie's first disastrous encounter with Cael, I was hooked. I liked the hero and the heroine from the start and enjoyed their growing attraction to each other. Their sexua ...more

If you are a reader who thrives on paranormal, romantic adventures, then a visit to Whisper Cape is an absolute must. It begins with recurring nightmares connected with a horrific event.

Whisper Cape is not only a quaint little town in the Pacific Northwest, it's the tale of two unique people and situations by no means ordinary. When the two primary characters, Addison and Cael, meet for the first several times, the sparks are already beginning to fly, and I don't mean just between them sexually,

In short this novel is about a young women called Addie, who discovers that she has the ability to shoot sparks from her hands. She is driving to work one day when she nearly runs over a man who disappears as soon as she stops the car. Over time, it becomes clear that he also has special powers and they start to grow close.

I love finding new authors, and Ms. Walsh does not disappoint. Whisper Cape is a great start to a new series, and follows Addie as she discovers things about her life, and herself, that she couldn't have possibly imagined. The romance between herself and Cael is, in some respects, a typical story, but the secrets they hold ensure that this is one relationship that has even higher highs, and more dramatic lows.

Initially, the story just clips along, introducing us to all the characters involved, a

All of a sudden Addie's fingers are letting out an electrical current, pretty cool. Then a stranger comes to town, Cael. He's tall, mysterious and sexy as all hell.

Whisper Cape is the first book I've read by Susan and I can guarantee that it will not be the last.

When I started reading, I wondered what was going on and quickly became engrossed into the whole story. From Addison's nightmares to the wierd creepy feeling of being followed to the steamy scenes with Cael, I never shied away from the book.

Susan did an amazing job on creating an addictive series that leaves you needing the next install ASAP and does not disappoint whatsoever!
