HASH(0xa1248f90) out of 5 stars Could Have Been Better Aug. 18 2005
By Sylvia - Published on
Format: Paperback
"I have liked most of Lori Wick's books,but this book is not one I enjoyed. I had to make myself finish it. There were way too many unnecessary conversations and characters. I'm glad the people are concerned about their spiritual state, but I got extremely bogged down with all the sub characters' Bible studies,thoughts,etc. Is this book about the town people or Reece and Conner? The main couple in the book hardly had any story time for them. Characters who weren't even particular friends/relatives with the main couple had way too much page time. Also, more could have been said about Reece and Conner's personalities. I didn't think they even had a chance to get to know one another very well. The previous book was much better then this one was in my opinion. If you are looking for a good Lori Wick book to read I definitely recommend The Californians Series, The Cameron Series, The Kensington Chronicles, Sophie's Heart, Pretense, and The Princess."

HASH(0xa11e6e1c) out of 5 stars Great follow-up! Sept. 9 2005
By S. Braun - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you liked the first book, you'll love this one too! There is nothing like sitting down to a good book and simply enjoying the characters and the story the author brings to life. You will find yourself cheering on Reece and Connor as they face the challenges set before them. There is a lot of talk about God and how to find Him and what to do after you do; some might want more story, but if you look at the whole, you see that the town is stuggling with finding it's way to the true light. So many people back then thought you only had to "do good and pay your tithe's", but it's so much more than that and that is what these characters are finding out. You'll love the continuing story of Jace and Maddie. Hope you like it too.

HASH(0xa10a8c24) out of 5 stars Really Enjoyed It! Oct. 23 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I couldn't wait until this book came out and I was excited to read it once I got my hands on it. I really liked getting to know Reece. I wish there had been more detail about Connor though. I had no clue how old he was until the end. For some reason I pictured him as much older than he was from how he ws described. I could have used a little more light shed on his character. I still enjoyed this book very much and didn't have any trouble finishing it. I couldn't put it down! I can't wait to see what's next for Tucker Mills!
HASH(0xa11e821c) out of 5 stars Gentle Easygoing Romance July 3 2012
By C. K. Harrell - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Just Above a Whisper" Tucker Mills Trilogy - is the second installment of the Tucker Mills Trilogy written by the Christian fiction writer Lori Wick. I recently found this book on library loan and researched her at length discovering that she has almost 40 books in print. Although I prefer mystery suspense & intrigue this book is a refreshing break from my norm and I am happy to say that it is a surprisingly enjoyable book filled with Christian idealism, salvation, compassion, good will, romance and of course a story like this would have to have one component of discord. In true form the author gives us a glossary naming the characters in the front of the book. The title of the book is somewhat of a mystery teasing us to believe that it is the injured voice of a love interest or the whisper of GOD.

The main plot of the story is the situation of the "indentured servant contract" initiated on February 29, 1834 ending in February of 1841 with Mr. Thackery having to work to pay off a debt owed to Mr. Zantow a local carpenter & furniture maker. We have to assume that Mr. Thacker & his daughter came to reside in the same house with Mr. Zantow due to their poverty stricken condition since it wasn't made clear in the story. Upon Mr. Thacker's death his beloved daughter Shereese (Reese) V. Thackery assumes the contract & continues to reside & work for Mr. Zantow cleaning, canning, cooking, tending the garden & running errands for him. Mr. Zantow had a drinking problem that scares Reese & she sometimes has to barricade herself in her room for safety. Reese is loved adored among the town's people and everyone is concerned over her plight. Reese is 6 feet tall, red headed, gentle, unassuming, intelligent, compassionate, honorable, trustworthy & diligent at her work. When Mr. Zantow dies suddenly at his work bench Reese's orderly world starts to spin. The inconsiderate condescending bank manager Mr. Victor Jeness doesn't release her contract - he assumes it for the bank and begins to work her like his own personal slave. The townspeople are appalled at the bank manager's behavior and the Pastor Muldoon writes a letter to the founders & owners of the bank for assistance. Soon Conner Kingsley along with his business partner Troy Thaddon show up to inspect the situation. Troy immediately releases Reese's contract and is too appalled at Mr. Jeness' decision to not only retain the contract but only pay her a measly $4.00 a month to live on. Soon, Mr. Jeness disappears. Troy is filled with compassion and good will and hires Reese to cook & clean while he and Conner reside at the Kingsley Mansion. Reese wants to share with the town that GOD has answered her prayers and released her from her contract. Now she boards with the widow Mrs. Greenlow and is happy to have employment in the beautiful Kingsley Mansion. All is well until she actually is introduced to Conner Kingsley. Reese is 6 feet tall red headed, very thin which gives her confidence to stay safe but Conner is 6 feet 6 inches and large in frame mysterious with a raspy whispery voice. Reese is terrified of Conner and not sure that she can maintain her employment. Just when things are starting to settle into some kind of normalcy Mr. Jeness shows up contemplating murder.

Find a comfortable spot on the sofa and nestle into the slow moving story of Reese and Conner and the good willed people of Tucker Mills. I however will utilize my Kindle and buy the Trilogy. Enjoy!

HASH(0xa11e56e4) out of 5 stars Less than impressed April 4 2007
By Ms Peel - Published on
Format: Paperback
While I didn't utterly loathe this novel, I found little to recommend in it. I read the occasional Romance Novel for diversion, and they almost always disappoint on several levels. Since this one is in the "inspirational" genre, I was hoping for a nice romance with the entertainment value of a historical drama, some romantic tension, and no sleazy sex scenes. What I got was 1) no drama, 2) no tension, and no "sex" at all... not even a stolen kiss. Somebody please buy this author a copy of "What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew...", and then perhaps her ensuing endeavors will have even a smidgen of historical flavour. The characters walk around slinging 20th century slang like "hi", "hello", and "OK" (well, the last one appeared in 1838 in reference to Pres. Van Buren, "Old Knickerbocker", but it wasn't in common usage as an affirmative until WW1). The female lead is referred to as having her hair "down her back": what?! Is she five years old?! Is she a prostitute?! Believe it or not, this is supposed to be 1839, but I wouldn't have known without reading the blurb on the back of the book. At one point another female character, who is only a few months pregnant, asks her husband, "Am I starting to show?" Excuse me? This is '39, waistlines are only just starting to come down from just under the bustline and are still very high, surmounting voluminous skirts. Think Little Bo Peep: very Dickens. Unless she's a "loose woman", she should be wearing stays (a corset), too. She's not going to "show" until about month eight, at which point she just won't go out in public. But enough on the historical gaffes.

Did I mention no sexual tension? Sorry, but I call "no way". I'm a Christian, Bible thumping believer myself, but I still have hormones. I don't care how chaste a person is, he or she is still going to have some serious "feelings" when meeting the significant other of their dreams. I'm glad the leads didn't jump on each other ten minutes after meeting, but does it have to be such a yawn festival? Does the author think nobody had "the hots" in the 19th century?The leads are so tortuously boring that there isn't even a kiss of any kind until after the wedding! Look, people "made out" in the 19th century, ok? It was done in private (unlike today), but people is people.

Perhaps the author thinks that it's "Christians" or "Believers" (as she terms us) who are free from sexual temptation. You'd think so, judging from the pompous, stuffed-shirt goody-two-shoes Christians populating this story. We can't go more than a page or so without the entire transcript of somebody's heartfelt prayer or sermonizing to either a fellow believer or seeker. Only a few pages into the first chapter, I was already irritated with the over preachyness of the writing. It's like reading a novelization of a Chick tract, complete with 20th century "Church speak" guaranteed to befuddle or exasperate anybody outside the "Christian ghetto". Which begs the question of the target audience for this book. If it's for believers, why all the preaching and salvation messages? If it's for a wider audience, with the hope of presenting the gospel to random readers, the Evangelistic jargon needs to be revised and explained. When somebody says "I'm saved by the blood!" it probably sounds like a Vampire moment to the uninitiated.

A few years ago I read an outstanding "Christian" romance (sort of) named "Pascal's Wager". I highly recommend it and would read anything by that author. Lori Wick can't hold a candle to it (pun intended).
