Whisper of Warning (The Glass Sisters #2) by Laura Griffin

Synopsis

“Courtney Glass has been in trouble all her life, but nothing tops being an up-close witness to a brutal murder. Until she’s accused of the crime. Every snap of evidence points to her guilt, and only Courtney knows what really happened. Now she must prove that she’s not a murderer…but is one of the killer’s intended victims. As police investigators hammer her for answers, Courtney knows she has two choices: run, or trust the brooding, sexy detective who’s made it clear she’s his prime suspect.

Will Hodges doesn’t need Special Forces training to know that, despite Courtney’s killer looks and razor-sharp tongue, her tough-girl act hides a vulnerable woman with a deadly secret. As the body count rises, Will realizes that a lethal enemy has Courtney in his crosshairs. The killer is waiting, watching her every move – and he won’t stop until her fear has grown from a whisper to a scream…”

Review

Whisper of Warning is the second book in The Glass Sisters duology. Courtney Glass appeared in the last book as Fiona’s younger sister who was not on the best path in life. In this book, Courtney is being framed for a murder and there is so much evidence pointing to her as a the killer that even Fiona has to ask her sister what is going on.

Out of everyone at Austin PD, Will Hodges is the only one unwilling to accept that Courtney is guilty. He knows a victim when he sees one, and he wants to help Courtney prove her innocence.

I thought this was a unique plot from the beginning and I really enjoyed the story, even though I would not say that Courtney was my favorite character out of all of Laura Griffin’s books. It seemed like she brought a lot of her problems on herself and I was not always sympathetic to her, even though we later learn about her past which sort of explains why she is the way that she is.

I loved Will though, and his determination to do the right thing by Courtney even though it means risking his job and reputation. The ending really surprised me in a good way. I did not think Courtney would actually go through with her plan, and I had no idea what to expect from that ending, but it was very exciting and suspenseful.

A bonus, at least for me, in this story was getting to see Alex and Nathan again. They are the main characters of Untraceable, book one of the Tracers series. When I read that book a few years ago, it seemed like Alex and Nathan already knew each other and I was confused while reading, thinking I had picked up a later book in the series by mistake. Well, now I know that they did have a small part in another story! This actually made me want to go back and read their book, because I loved their connection in this one and Nathan is such a great character.

With that, I have read all of Laura Griffin’s backlist of books (with the except of the Moreno and Hart series she co-wrote with Allison Brennan and which I hope to read at some point). I look forward to her latest book which comes out next April.
