Publisher's Summary

A strong-willed librarian. A new cop on the local force. Two lonely souls find each other and embark on a paranormal mystery adventure.

Twelve-year-old Whitney Powers looks at the books on supernatural phenomena in a dark corner of the Granny Larson Library. As she stares, the bookshelf begins to shake and a prism-like flash of light blinds her momentarily.

Whitney goes missing for the next three days. Finally, a local patrolman finds her a few miles from the library. Her explanation of the incident causes her to be ridiculed for the next 18 years. Despite countless opportunities to leave and end the abuse, she's stayed in this small town.

Why has she always remained close to the Granny Larson Library, which is supposedly haunted?

What happened during those three days that's forcing her to stay back and work at the library?

Great Read!

This book was a great unique spin on a paranormal mystery. Story was intriguing, narration was great. It was a "who dun it" with paranormal assistance. I would love to check out more of this series.

A new Favorite!

I was given this book as a gift from the narrator in exchange for an honest review. I was pleasantly surprised. I very much enjoyed this book. And the narrator did a fabulous job. The characters had distinctly different voices which added to the individuality of the characters.
Can't wait for the next one!

1 for story, 4 for narration

I really hate doing this. I always feel guilty when I offer to review a book and then have to say bad things about it. I know there are reviewers out there that request a book to do just that. I'm not that person. I go into a book hoping to love it and I'm disappointed when I don't.

But honestly, this story just does not hang together. The ghosts are extraneous to the plot. Whitney is a random 'chosen one,' special for no apparent reason and far, far too perfect. But worst of all is the attempt an being a police procedural. Reasonably, if she didn't end up dead she'd be in jail for impersonating a police officer and interfering in an active investigation, instead of being given some vague 'clearance' and invited to work with the special police. None of it works! At all.

I try not to generalize. But I honestly think some male authors shouldn't try to write female characters. Whitney is so incredibly unlikable I almost can't verbalize it. The things she's supposed to think are important just make her horrible. Her whole life comes down to pettily rubbing 'her man' into the face of people who made fun of her. As if having a man makes her complete. I cannot tell you how many times I rolled my eyes, said "gross" out loud or made gagging motions. For real, if I hadn't accepted this in exchange for an honest review (from the narrator) I wouldn't have finished it. It's that bad.

The writing seems mechanically fine, though I had the audio so I can't be certain. But its the sort that leans heavily on 'very,' 'extremely,' 'really' and far too many adjectives. Tiffany Williams did a fine job with the narration, but the story is an utter flop.

really enjoyable

this book was so good and the narration by Tiffany was really great. These characters came to life with her reading it. Whispers From Another World was really great to read with great characters and an even better listen

Great Beginning or a Series

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I really enjoyed this paranormal story of romance, suspense, and detective work. The development of the characters was excellent and the narration was great. Tiffany Williams does a great job with portrayng the characters as the author created them. Looking forward to the next book.

A good book that can easily stand on its own.

This book was pretty good overall. The plot was interesting and brought a new twist to the paranormal. The characters were nice but I felt were a little too cliche. the narrator definitely put some life into the book.

Fun paranormal mystery!!!

Whitney is a young woman who has been ridiculed for years by the people of the town she lives in for her beliefs and for the stories she tells when she returns from another world as a child. Everything changes when she meets a new detective on the police force who actually seems to believe her.

This book had the right amount of romance to not distract from the mystery while creating the story. I got very into this book and listened from start to finish. This is a series that I am definitely interested in following.

The narration is perfect for the characters. Tiffany Williams's voice makes for easy listening and to keep me drawn into the book. I would recommend to anyone looking for a paranormal romance!!
