Courtney Glass agrees to meet her cheating ex-lover at a remote location in the park and things go haywire. Suddenly she's the focus of a murder investigation and fears for her life as well as her livelihood. New homicide detective Will Hodges is assigned to the case and knows she's innocent but isn't telling the complete truth about what happened. His job is to get chummy with her so she'll open up and be more forthcoming. He never intended to cross any lines but he's intrigued by Courtney and ...more
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
Sandra ~ ♥ Cross My Heart ♥
4.5 Stars - From the heart-clutching beginning to the heart-touching ending, Whisper Of Warning is an action packed suspense with a healthy dose of romance - the kind where the H/h snarl and snipe at each other in an effort to hide their true feelings. Will - strong, silent, honorable detective - a brooding man of few words struggling to keep his growing attraction to a suspect under control. Ex-military, Will is big on following the rules and doing things by the book, but Courtney Glass is push ...more

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 loved this and I do believe this is the best RS book I've read in quite awhile. From the opening chapter with a murder-suicide gone wrong, until the final abduction I was pretty much hooked.I wasn't sure I cared for Courtney in book 1 but here she was a strong, feisty, resilient heroine, and Will the detective on the case was yummy. Together they were scorching. Highly recommend, 5 stars.

Review: First off, I think it's important to note that you should read the preceding book in the mini-series before jumping into this as it lays a lot of groundwork as to Courtney's character and also her relationship with her sister.

The plot of this one centres upon the Heroine being framed for murder and the Hero investigating the crime trying to
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
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 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

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

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

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).

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....

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!
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.

Just found out that there is a 1st book to the series of "The Glass Sisters" !!!
Highly enjoyed this one, (even if it was the 2nd of the serie, it didn't minor the entertainment !), so I am looking forward to read the 1st one, about "Fiona Glass" !!!
And I hope that there are more to follow !
This one, about "Courtney Glass" was a real pageturner !
4,5 stars

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

I've been looking forward to this book ever since I read Thread of Fear, Courtney's older sister Fiona's story. Actually even before that when I read Untraceable in which the hero, Will Hodges, was a secondary character. Anyway, I've been wanting to read Courtney and Will's story and it certainly didn't disappoint!

We first got to know Courtney Glass in Thread of Fear, when she moves in with her sister Fiona because she's low on funds and her heat isn't working at her place. She crashes on her si

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.

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. With no time to ponder this confusing accusation a masked gunman gets into the back of the car. After taking their cell phones he forc ...more

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 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
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
