{{Book Nerd Tours}} Blog Tour + Giveaway: BEAUTIFUL WHISPERS by ALICE AYDEN

Title: Beautiful Whispers

Author: Alice Ayden

Published Date: June 4th

A Jane of Virginia 1 Romance/Suspense

There's an instant attraction between a girl from one of Virginia's oldest families and a maid's son, but secrets and dangers lurk in places no one expects.

Twenty-one year old Jane begins her day like any other. She lives on a gorgeous Virginia Plantation and carefully avoids any type of responsibility. Everyone assumes she’ll marry her rich, childhood sweetheart until she meets handyman Alexander. There is an instant attraction between the girl from one of Virginia’s oldest families and the son of a maid and gardener.

With Alexander’s encouragement, Jane begins to take on her family’s responsibilities but quickly starts remembering pieces of her forgotten past. Why does she have unexplained scars? Why is she suddenly afraid of everything? And why won’t her family tell her the truth? Alexander swears he won’t push Jane too far too soon, but he only knows half the story. The bigger the house, the more places there are to hide.


About the Author

I wrote my first short story when I was five, but when an assignment in a lit course challenged me to “rewrite” the last chapter of Jane Eyre I was hooked. I dreamt of going to an ivy cloaked university in England or Scotland, but my health issues forced me to rethink that agenda. Working through and with chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, food allergies, migraines and the scary health emergencies, I managed to finish both my Bachelor’s degree in English and History and my Master’s in Strategic Intelligence.
As a child, I wanted to be everything from a veterinarian (can’t stand to see any animal hurt) to an actress (too shy) to an astronaut (not good at science) to an Egyptologist (I wilt in extreme heat – or anything over 70 degrees). Writing makes sense to me. My characters pursue all the subjects that interest me and/or terrify me. I started with screenplays and TV scripts, and my first screenplay placed finalist and semi-finalist in several screenwriting competitions. Loving a challenge, I dove further into the writing craft to study dialogue, description, plot, pacing, story (if there was a book on writing I’ve read it).
When I’m not writing, I’m filling up bird feeders, troubleshooting computers, playing games (I’m a freak for logic problems and Tom Clancy video games), reading (anything by Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, Dean Koontz, Anne Rice), watching movies (I personally would like to recommend Joss Whedon be officially named a god). I’ve never met an animal I didn’t love and regularly rescue bugs and spiders. Living in North Carolina and Texas, I became the snake expert and successfully relocated many happy snakes who lived to tell the tale. I’ve lived in California, Arizona, Texas and North Carolina but have felt most at home in Virginia.

Where do I start? I'm not quite sure because I wasn't sure if I would like this book because I'm not one for Suspense reads but it surprised me. I enjoyed Beautiful Whispers very much. Although that ending killed me..another thing I'm not a fan of is cliff hangers but I'm glad I quickly acquired book 2. ( which will be a must after you read Beautiful Whispers- Trust me)

This story is told in two person POV. Switching back and forth between Jane and Alexander. I really enjoyed the writing in this book. Alice Ayden is a wonderful writer and had me wanting to read more. I love how Jane and Alexander are together. Then there are a few characters that are quite disturbing with what they do to Jane to make her forget. I along side Alexander would love to cause them okay maybe ill let Alexander do that but I really hate what they do to Jane. The Suspense in this wasn't to intense for me which I liked and the mystery behind what happen to Jane is killing's wonderful :) 

All in all I enjoyed Beautiful Whispers by Alice Ayden and can't wait to finish reading book 2 (missing 6- review will follow after I finish reading it :P ) I would recommend this read to anyone who loves romance/suspense book and even if you just love romance..This one was a good one! Must read!!
