Parrish Locke is 27 years old, a successful model with a gorgeous boyfriend, and a loft in Manhattan. Little does she know that during a photo shoot in Chester, West Virginia, an unfortunate car accident will change her life . . . forever.
Parrish discovers she's gifted in a very special way, and thus begins a suspense-filled journey that unravels secrets and mysteries from the past.
Once her journey ends, it is just the beginning for Parrish, because only she holds the key that will bridge the past to the present, and allow wrongs to be righted from beyond.
From mafia capos, to steamy romance, and solving the unsolved, her journey is one that provides the blueprint for her future--one that she never imagined possible.

Silent Whisper by Andrea Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was a little hesitant to jump into Silent Whisper. Paranormal is something I like to read every now and then, but I don’t like scary books. At all. But after I read it, I was glad I did. To be honest, I forgot Silent Whisper was a paranormal book from the first 10%- to about 71%. I was so caught up in the story of the past, the other elements just left my mind. Andrea is that type of story teller. Her writing is always consistently good and engaging.
This is another one of those stories where you want to stay away from spoilers. You just want to be surprised by the twists.
It was about a 27 year old girl named Parrish Locke who goes through a life changing experience. But more than that, it is a timeless love story between Dominic and Karlie.
I actually loved 10-70% best. The beginning and end were good too, but there were a few elements that threw me off a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I really loved the story and the characters. In fact, I stayed up way too late finishing this one because once I hit about 40% I could not put it down until I was finished.
I loved Karlie and Dominic’s love story. It wasn’t conventional. But it was still a beautiful and forbidden romance.
Silent Whisper was a very original concept and I loved that there was always an element of mystery, some twists and turns. The paranormal aspect is not the largest part of this story. I really hope people realize that. It has a part here or there that might seem a little on the creepy side, but it’s not scary at all. I think thats important to point out because I don’t do scary AT ALL. As I said before, I was nervous to add this to my TBR in fear that it would be scary, but it’s not. So don’t let that deter you from reading.
Out of all the elements of this story, the main thing it centered around was an eternal love. A forever, once in a life time kind of love. If you’re looking for a unique love story with lots of mystery, suspense, heat and a little paranormal flare thrown in, you’ve found your next read!
“I loved you like I’ve loved no one else… ever. You are my heart- and my soul, but most importantly- you are my eternal love.”
