About the book:

This exciting and adventurous romantic spy novel is the second book in a new series from Roseanna M. White. Whispers from the Shadows combines fascinating cloak-and-dagger secrets with a tale of love and intrigue during the War of 1812.

Treachery causes Gwyneth Fairchild’s world to crumble. The daughter of a British general, she barely saves her life by fleeing London aboard a ship to America. Her goal is to find refuge with the Lane family in Maryland, having been told by her father she could implicitly trust Winter and Bennet Lane, even though their nations are once again at war. After meeting their son, Thad, she wonders how safe she truly is when she discovers that the Lanes trade in a dangerous commodity—espionage.

Not long after Gwyneth finds refuge in his city, Thad Lane experiences the tug of love, though he fears it may blur lines of loyalty. With family playing the part of enemies and enemies proving themselves friends, a future with Gwyn is uncertain. But at this moment, with the British advancing on Washington and Baltimore, they have only their shared faith in God as a shield about them.

My thoughts:

Ever since I finished Ring of Secrets and Fairchild's Lady, I could hardly wait to read Whispers from the Shadows! I just knew it was going to be another fantastic read - and it was!

I loved all of the main characters in Whispers from the Shadows (well, except for Gates - couldn't stand him!) and I especially loved the relationship between Thad and his parents.

I also loved the whole spy aspect to Whispers from the Shadows - especially the codes and encrypted letters. There were a few things in this book that weren't my cup of tea, but the story definitely made up for those things and I just loved this book!

Overall, Whispers from the Shadows was a wonderful addition to the Culper Ring series. As a whole, I think I enjoyed Ring of Secrets a little bit more than this one, but I still absolutely loved Whispers from the Shadows - especially the fantastic ending! I definitely recommend this book and the entire series.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
