Loved the Amazing Second Book in the Off the Grid Series
Reviewed in the United States on August 8, 2020
I absolutely loved Reckless Whisper by Barbara Freethy, the second book in her Off the Grid series. I really love romantic thrillers and Barbara Freethy truly delivered an incredible story with Reckless Whisper. Each book in the series keeps getting better. I could not out it down. I loved every page. I have read some of Barbara Freethy's other books, both her romances and other romantic thrillers and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I loved the characters and the way she describes the locations in and around Chicago. I enjoyed that the location for Reckless Whisper was different from the location in Perilous Trust. I really enjoyed how the book was told from the perspective of the main characters. I love getting the insight and feelings from the different characters. Barbara Freethy has shown that she is a master storyteller regardless of the genre. Reckless Whisper is the story of Bree Adams, an FBI agent in the New York Field Office and her former best friend, Nathan Bishop. As a member of the Critical Action Response Detail (CARD) team, Bree is sent to Chicago when it appears that another ten year old girl, Hayley Jansen has been kidnapped by the media dubbed, White Rose Kidnapper. When Bree goes to the home of Grace Roberts to interview her since she was the last person to see Hayley before she was abducted, Nathan Bishop answers the door. Grace Roberts is Nathan's niece. I love the reaction that each one of them had to the other. Aside from the case, Bree has been receiving mysterious phone calls that leads her to examine her own past in Chicago and with Nathan. Bree left Chicago eleven years ago, when she was pregnant put her baby up for adoption after she was born. Bree and Nathan work together to try to bring Hayley home, even though the Chicago FBi office has benched her from the case. While they are searching for Hayley, Bree and Nathan share secrets from their past and begin to explore their feelings for one another. I really enjoy the plot twists and the surprises in Reckless Whisper. One of my favorite parts of the story are the poignant moments that Bree and Nathan share, and the moment between Nathan and his sister, Josie. I love how Hayley was rescued and that good triumphed over evil in the end. I love how the Epilogue, wraps up the ending of the story. Never would I have guessed who was behind the kidnapping and the threats against Bree, that was truly a surprise plot twist. I love how all the lose ends got tied up. It was an incredible story and I loved every page. So looking forward to reading Wyatt Tanner's story in Desperate Play.
