Book Description

Oct. 1 1994
Privilege, Passions, and Secrets Katia Morrell grew up amid wealth, sharing the idyllic childhood enjoyed by America's aristocracy without ever really being one of them. As daughter of the housekeeper to the powerful Warren family, she never truly belonged. Now she is back at the Warren mansion, hoping to see the man she always loved, Jordan Whyte, heir to the Whyte fortune. The occasion is the mysterious deaths of Jordan's brother and his brother's wife. Now chic and rich in her own right, Katia returns feeling strong. But once she sees Jordan and how much he needs her, the old feelings come flooding back. Soon she is learning secrets about the family she thought she knew-and getting trapped in a chilling drama of murder and money, men and women, and truths so shocking they can only be revealed in...

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm more of a straight romance fan so when I tried this fiction, I was shocked when the author went IN-DEPTH into the life histories of Katia, Katia's mother, Jordan, Jordan's parents, & Mrs. Warren. The story felt like a cross between 'Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous' and 'Dynasty' bec. those histories took up most of the book while the 'not-quite-on romance' could've fit into one chapter. Although not what I'm used to, the story was different yet unforgettable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Any Delinsky is great Delinsky... Aug. 26 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I prefer her "meatier" novels [More Than Friends, etc] as opposed to the "harlequin" style. This book falls right in between the two styles. Easy light reading thats more than a no-brainer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good book by Barbara Delinsky Jan. 14 2005
By Ratmammy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
TWILIGHT WHISPERS by Barbara Delinsky

January 14, 2005

TWILIGHT WHISPERS by Barbara Delinsky is a reissue of a book that was originally published in 1987. It was also her first mainstream novel, after spending the first part of her career writing straight romance novels. I for one enjoy these mainstream novels, because I feel she's much better at them. Her romances don't seem to stand the test of time, but this book did.

TWILIGHT WHISPERS is the story of two powerful and wealthy families, told from various view points but for the most part, centering on the murder of two of their members, Mark Whyte and his wife Deborah Warren. An outsider, Robert Cavanaugh, is the one that starts the book off, as he is the investigator for the murders and he starts the case by researching the history of the two families.

While the murder plot line helped make the story move fast, what interested me the most was the family saga of the Whytes and the Warrens. Delinsky always does a good job with stories such as this, and I really liked the book. For those expecting a straight romance, this is not it. Look elsewhere. But for those who want more than just romance, read TWILIGHT WHISPERS. This book comes recommended by the Ratmammy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read June 18 2005
By G. Greene - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This novel is part romance, part mystery, part family saga -- and while it lacks a clear categoric definition, I found all parts of story interesting. People are not always what they seem, and Delinsky does a very good job interweaving the tales of the various characters with the plot twists to a satisfying (if vaguely improbable) ending.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Re-Release of an Earlier Book April 15 2005
By Mamalinde - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dated, wordy and not one of her best. The focus is all over the place, although the book is written as mystery meets romance. Reminds me of the soap operas DALLAS and DYNASTY. Life is too short to re-read old books of this caliber, though Delinsky's more recent books are high on my list.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GRACEFUL, WELL PACED VOICE PERFORMANCE Jan. 14 2005
By Gail Cooke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette
Detective Robert Cavanaugh feels an adrenalin rush, more drive than he's felt in years when he's assigned by his superior, John Ryan, to investigate a double murder case. Murder suicide would be the easy answer but he thinks not.

Now, this isn't just any pair of dead bodies - the bodies belong to Deborah Warren and Mark Whyte, offspring of two of the most influential families to be found. Not surprisingly with a healthy does of power also has come unscrupulous behavior, none of which can be proven at this point. But there's bad blood in both families with father and son vying for political position.

However, as Cavanaugh stands sweating in the July heat at grave side services for the deceased he watches intently as the Warrens and Whites unite in their grief. Was it real or a sham? If they were pretending they'd certainly had years to perfect their public personas.

All that Cavanaugh knew at this point was that the couple had been involved in some rather kinky activities. The question running through Cavanaugh's mind is whether or not someone would actually murder members of their own family in order to preserve the carefully tended family image.

Also important to the story is Cassie, the housekeeper who has tended to the family for a number of years. Her daughter, Katia, grew up with the Warren and Whyte offspring and is fond of all of them. As one might expect from Delinsky, Jordan Whyte and Katia provide a romantic interest.

However, far from merely a romance, this is a murder mystery and a saga tracing the generations of two families.

Kathy Garver, well remembered for her role as "Cissy" on television's Family Affair, is also an accomplished stage and film actress. Her performance of this story is graceful and well-paced.
