Publisher's Summary

Lydia's job at the library is her world - until a mysterious patron catches her eye...and perhaps her heart.

Just months after the closure of the Chicago World's Fair, librarian Lydia Bancroft finds herself fascinated by a mysterious dark-haired and dark-eyed patron. He has never given her his name; he actually never speaks to a single person. All she knows about him is that he loves books as much as she does.

Only when he rescues her in the lobby of the Hartman Hotel does she discover that his name is Sebastian Marks. She also discovers that he lives at the top of the prestigious hotel and that most everyone in Chicago is intrigued by him.

Lydia and Sebastian form a fragile friendship, but when she discovers that Mr. Marks isn't merely a very wealthy gentleman but also the proprietor of an infamous saloon and gambling club, she is shocked.

Lydia insists on visiting the club one fateful night and is suddenly a suspect in a murder. She must determine who she can trust, who is innocent, and if Sebastian - the man so many people fear - is actually everything her heart believes him to be.

    "Whispers in the Reading Room was Worth the Read!"
    What did you love best about Whispers in the Reading Room?

    How great a writer Shelley Gray is to draw me in quickly and keeps the pace of the story going to the very end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lydia - well written


    Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. She did a great job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Towards the end when everything goes wrong and how wonderfully written it is.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic listen/read glad to have both the book and audible.
