From RITA award nominee Karen White and in the gothic tradition of Victoria Holt comes WHISPERS OF GOODBYE. It is the story of Catherine deClaire Reed, alone in the world with nothing left to fear, and John McMahon, a man from whom Catherine unwillingly seeks protection, but who is intent on hiding a very dark secret.
Set against the backdrop of a Louisiana sugar plantation, amidst the humid air and cloying Spanish moss, Catherine must fight her growing passion for John to uncover the secrets he hides. But will her discoveries release her from her darkest nightmares or threaten her very life?

Remember the wondful gothic romances of Victoria Holt and Daphne duMaurier? The woman in peril and the dark, brooding hero? They were set in remote places like Cornwall or Devon, and the heroine was always an even match for whatever evil lurked in the dark corners of the old mansion on a hill.
With the advent of Dorchester Publishing's new and wildly successful Candleglow line, we have been invited to return to a favorite genre. But far from the mist-covered cliffs of Cornwall, I have brought my own gothic tale to the swamps of Louisiana, where shadows and bad gris-gris lurk and where all is not what it appears to be.From the Back Cover:
"I need you. I am so afraid."
As soon as she had read the words, Catherine set off for Louisiana to help her older sister. Upon entering the moss-draped woods surrounding the plantation house, Cat found herself immersed in a mystery as murky as the mighty Mississippi River. For Elizabeth had disappeared, and Cat couldn't help but suspect her sister's husband knew more than he was saying.
His dark eyes told her he had great sadness; his arms said he had much warmth; and his lips had a language all their own. But not even a whisper of her sister.
Drawn into a web of family secrets and ancient superstitions, Cat hardly knew what to fear most: the deceptively peaceful swamps, or the dashingly powerful man who could steal her breath and sear her heart.
