Today I share my review for my stop on the blog blitz for Whisper to Me by Sherrie Lowe. This one has a lot in the mix including a new wife and a vengeful ghost. There is also an international giveaway going on!
A new wife and a vengeful ghost. Not a good mix.
Letitia – Tish – Stanyer makes husband Theo promise never to remarry if she dies and he complies just to pacify her. She isn’t going to die.
She does – and he does remarry. Tish isn’t happy. Her spirit cannot rest with another woman in her domain, sampling the delights of her husband. Theo belongs to her – Sheena will have to go.

On their 14th anniversary Theo and Tish have an interesting conversation: She asks Theo if she were to die that he would promise that he would not remarry. She says she would not remarry if he died first. His response during their conversation: “Ok, Ok I promise, but you’re not going to die.”
But she does….
Ten years later Theo has remarried and Tish is not happy about that. She is determined to do whatever it takes to get rid of this new wife, especially when they living are in her house!
I did not connect to the characters, though I did feel for the new wife, Sheena. I wondered why Tish would want Theo to be alone for the rest of his life: You are dead and he can move on in whatever what if he wants! Understanding Tish’s reasoning for Theo to not remarry would have helped me. She was very serious about Theo not remarrying and determined to have Sheena leave.
At times Whisper to Me was entertaining: It started with ‘cute haunting’ type hauntings, but for me Tish took it too far. Theo ultimately realizes what he needs to do and makes his decision.
I did enjoy the ending as we see what will happen next: and then we have that last sentence! Though not totally for me, I would like to see what happens next.
About the Author:
I am a divorced mum of two adult sons and nana to three grandchildren, soon to be four. I’ve always had a notion to write but didn’t get round to it seriously until I became ill with M.E in 1995 when I was 40 and was too ill to continue my job as a learning support assistant in a mainstream high school. I was devastated to have to resign from my job but writing saved my sanity. My first attempt was a memoir, Shadow Across the Sun which covered the loss of my mum to breast cancer two days before my 13th birthday. When the rejections began to flow in from traditional publishers and agencies I joined a creative writing class and learned to write fiction. Whisper to Me is my 10th novel. I have a strong belief in the afterlife due to events following my mum’s death so most of my stories have some form of supernatural aspect to them.
