Our Review

‘The town wanted to go back to normal. To pretend that the ugly business had never happened. That they were safe. It wasn’t that easy for those of us marked by that night. We bore the scars in every way. We felt them every time we moved, from the ghosts haunting us to the need to be wary of everyone around us. Only my ghost was still alive. He’d just vanished from my life.’

Catherine Cowles is one of our favourite Authors we can’t stop falling in love with her characters and inhaling her books every time one lands on our kindles. She has a brilliant knack for combining intriguing suspense with passion and vivid heartfelt emotion. Her characters have such depth and their stories grab our hearts from the first written words of their journeys. We know what we’re going to get when picking up a story penned by Catherine Cowles, and we’re here for it every time!

“I know I wasn’t enough, but I can’t be reminded of that every day. I can’t do it.”
“I’m the one who’s not enough.”

Whispers of You is the first book in Catherine Cowles’ new series Lost and Found where we meet childhood friends, Wren and Holt who grew up together in their small-town, fell in love as teenagers, and thought they’d end up together, forever. This Author ensured that we not only saw but felt this beautiful connection between Holt and Wren, who were soulmates at heart.

“Not going to pretend I’m not in love with you, Wren. Missed touching you. Sometimes, I’d be walking and swear I felt your hand in mine.”

Personal tragedy tears them apart, which sees Holt fleeing everything he knows whilst weighed down with guilt and despair. Choosing instead to live as if there’s no tomorrow in the face of the world’s atrocities. Wren stays to face her demons, heartbroken and scarred but strong enough to stay where she feels loved and protected despite the other half of her heart missing. Helping others, being the voice on the other end of the phone when fear and terror rears its ugly head.

“That’s the risk we all face. The price for loving deeply. Family, friendships, relationships. The only certain thing is that we’ll lose each other. We don’t have control over that. We can only control how we live until it’s our time. Do you want to spend your time worrying yourself sick? Or do you want to live?”

The journey Holt and Wren had to take to find each other again after years of absence, yet with a love in their hearts that still burns strong and bright, is not an easy one. It’s fraught with danger and terror, yet it is one of healing, hope and ultimately love. Catherine Cowles writes such addictive compelling stories with wonderful families, we cannot wait for more from the Hartley’s. Such a beautiful, heart-breaking, and passionate story once again from this amazing Author.

“I love you. I never stopped loving you. Not for a single breath.”


One night—a single moment—cost me everything.

My body, broken beyond repair. The boy I’d thought was my forever. The life I’d always dreamt of.

Now, Holt’s back. And he’s no longer a boy, but a man with shadows in his eyes and demons haunting him.

He says he’s here to make things right. To get back a little bit of all we’ve lost. And he doesn’t show any signs of leaving the small town that has been my refuge.

As stolen moments turn to days, Holt’s around every corner. With his burning stare and lingering touches. Before long, my walls come crashing down and I’m just hoping that taking this second chance isn’t as reckless as it feels.

But not everyone is happy that Holt has returned. As tragedy strikes again, I’m the one left in the crosshairs. And Holt might not be able to save me this time…

“Just don’t fall in love with me,” I teased. “Kay.” He said.


‘Sometimes passion was a whisper, other times a roar. This time? It was a storm.’


“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

SWEET MEMORY (The Painted Daisies #1) by LJ EVANS

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
