"This story has so many twists and turns that I read it in one sitting...a must read for everyone, I don't want to ruin anything, so I will just say...WOW" Booklovers Anonymous Blog
FBI Special Agent Bree Adams has a personal secret, something she has managed to keep hidden for the past ten years-at least she always thought so… But a chance encounter on a train, and whispered words of chilling consequence change everything. Is the truth about to come out or is someone playing with her mind and her life?
Nathan Bishop knew Bree when she was a street kid like him. Their dark past once put him in her debt, and he had to pay up. The last thing he wants to do is help her again. He has a new life now—a life he could lose with one wrong move. But the beautiful Bree is desperate—how can he walk away?
To get to the truth, protect innocent lives and their own, they'll have to fight their way through the past, as danger stalks their every move, and heartbreaking choices must be made.

"Barbara Freethy writes wonderful romantic suspense stories. The plot in RECKLESS WHISPER is action packed & never dull. Each book in a series can be read as a standalone but you end up getting hooked & read them all anyway. Once again, I didn't see the ending coming & that's what makes Ms. Freethy's books so good!" Pam – Goodreads

Bree, an FBI agent, goes to Chicago to hunt a serial kidnapper she is investigating. It quickly becomes apparent that this is a copycat child abduction and the target of the kidnapper is Bree. She reconnects with a lost love from her childhood, Nathan, and together they play the villain's cat and mouse game.
First of all from an investigative standpoint, the elements are weak. Bree bases her entire investigation on a fact supplied by the kidnapper. Moreover what seasoned investigator would walk into a room, grab and open an envelope barehanded left by the bad guy, and then pass it to her civilian friend to take a look? Furthermore ***spoiler*** the kidnapper doesn't even show up on the radar until the last act when the story that the reader knew nothing about is told.
The romance aspect of the book was great but the mystery left a lot to be desired--lots of loose ends and poorly structured. The wildly over-complicated revenge plot had me rolling my eyes.
Aside from the character development issues, the premise of this one was weak. The whole kidnapping drama seemed far-fetched and convoluted, and I found it difficult to believe that Bree would have wound up being a federal agent given her shady juvenile history. The whole thing was just a stretch for me. Add those unbelievable elements to Bree's unlikable character, and it just made for a weak story. I read the whole book, but was frankly glad when I finished it.
I'm still debating about continuing with the series. I think if I'm able to get the next book for a low price, I'll probably give it a shot since I did enjoy the first book. I won't be in a rush to read it, though.
Great plot and character development, with the underlying theme, of revenge is a dish served cold. Loved this series, now onto book one. A MUST-READ!

Is it who I think it is?
Near end of chapter 12 a real weepy moment
The further I was the more gripped and absorbed I became, the benefit of self-isolation I was able to read more - the wondering of where it was going carried on
Big surprise in chapter 17 now where is it going?
No spoilers but loved it all now for book 3
