A straitlaced bookseller and a rowdy trail guide fight their ill-suited attraction in Book Five of the Prairie Hearts series by USA Today bestselling author Caroline Fyffe.
Wyoming Territory, October 1883
Tabitha Canterbury came to Logan Meadows with one goal: to open the bookshop she's always dreamed of having. In a town full of illiterate cowboys, though, making the Storybook Lodge a success is easier said than done. And things get more complicated when the saloon next door gets a new co-owner and Tabitha finds herself falling for the wrong sort of man....
After a lifetime guiding settlers across the prairie, Hunter Wade isn't looking to stay put in Logan Meadows. But as a partner in the Bright Nugget saloon, he's determined to turn a profit - and if that puts him in competition with Miss Hoity-Toity Canterbury, that's fine. Even if she is beautiful, and clever, and always ready with a witty retort.
Can these two stubborn souls come together - or will pride keep them apart?

I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
I love books from this era....Caroline Fyffe is an amazing Story Teller & I haven't read/LISTENED to a book of hers I haven't ABSOLUTELY LOVED!! Whispers On The Wind is AMAZING!! John does an excellent job narrating it!!
Hearing the book read out loud makes everything so real because I pay close attention to detail; and can imagine the things the author is describing. Also, the characters seem to come to life for me as I listen to the narrator.
Debra Holland's books are similar.
He was able to make each character have their own distinct voice which made it very easy to get to know the character and feel a personal connection to each one.
I always laugh and cry when reading this author's books. There are always moments that make me have an extreme reaction when the hero turns his tender feelings on and realizes he loves the heroine.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and eagerly await for the next one by this author.
Every time I re-read a book, I see something new. It is the same with audible books. Just today I heard a couple things that I had forgotten and they added to the story. Listening to this book puts me in a quiet comfort zone and lets me "feel" the way it was in the little book store and living in Logan Meadows. I could listen to this book again next week and hear a new conversation that I forgot.
Tabitha is my favorite. I enjoy watching a strong woman "grow" in a book. She knows what she wants and works hard to accomplish it. I also could "feel" her loneliness because there was no one to put their arms around her and she was considered a spinster. Her heart going out to her friend, Daisy, and how she wanted to help her have a better life.
Amazing!!! That is the word for it. The Irish lilt he needed for the Deputy was perfect. A touch of proper English and the Old Boston Propriety tone was excellent. Some voices can put you to sleep but not this narrators voice. He kept the absolutely perfect tone for each character throughout the book.
I smiled often at the antics of Mrs. Hollyhock. The deep voice of Hunter Wade made me feel emotion and I wanted to cheer him up and help him learn to read. The lives and events of the Chinese family and the little daughter brought on the tears. How could anyone hurt a sweet little girl like her. In the end I wanted to yell "gotcha" when Tabitha broke the guys arm.
I'm in love with Hunter Wade! I suppose that brings suspect to my character but his name suggests a strong man of great charisma. This author managed to bring many of the characters of former books right into the storyline and renew our acquaintance, so to speak. It can be read as a stand-alone but makes it more interesting if you start off with Book One.

Whispers on the Wind is the fifth book in the series. While it can be read as a stand alone title, I highly recommend that you read the series from the beginning. That way you can experience the true beauty of Logan Meadows and it's inhabitants. With each book we are introduced to new characters and get to revisit the ones we lost our hearts to in previous volumes. Caroline has a way of painting beautiful pictures with her words so it is impossible not to become emotionally invested in her characters' lives.
I laughed and I cried and I felt my blood boil as I read this story. I was rooting for my favorites and shaking my head when some reverted back to their old ways. As always, from the very first page, I was on a roller coaster of emotions.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series because I have so many questions that I am hoping will get answered.
The narrator did a lovely job bringing these beloved characters to life.
I loved the little town that the author has written about. This is book 5 and this book stands alone, but I want to go back and read the whole series to know all the people of Logan Meadows.
Hunter with his wild but gentile ways.
Tabitha's mother. It was quite cute.
