Review: Love's Every Whisper (Eagle Harbor #2) by Naomi Rawlings

About the Book

"A whole new level of storytelling." Laurie Alice Eakes, Author of The Mountain Midwife
"One of those rare occasions where I loved the second book more than the first!" Heidi Robbins, Book Blogger

Victoria Donnelly wants to do something right at least once in her lifetime. With five years of failed courtships behind her and the calendar inching closer to another birthday, she's finally found a way to redeem herself in the eyes of her family. But her plan requires her to return to her home town of Eagle Harbor, where forgotten feelings for a man she can never have lie buried.

Elijah Cummings has loved Victoria for fifteen years. But fishermen’s sons don’t marry shipping barons’ daughters. He knows it. She knows it. The entire town knows it. Resolved to keep his distance from Victoria, Elijah focuses on establishing a much needed life-saving station, risking his own life by rescuing sailors stuck aboard shipwrecks... until he learns she's about to make an irreversible decision, one she'll spend the rest of her life regretting.

He knows how to save drowning sailors—but how is he to save the woman he loves from the biggest mistake of her life… without destroying both their hearts in the process?

Come back in time and revisit the remote town of Eagle Harbor, Michigan, in this memorable story of love, courage, and drama by fan-favorite author Naomi Rawlings.

My Review

4.5 Stars

After reading and loving the first book in this series, Love's Unfading Light, I was super excited to read Victoria and Elijah's story in Love's Every Whisper. And it did not disappoint! It was just as good as the first!

Elijah's doing something so admirable and heroic by starting a life-saving station to rescue people whose ships have wrecked. This led to some pretty intense scenes of daring rescues where I'd be holding my breath and reading as fast as I could, hoping beyond hope that everything would work out okay. I really felt for Victoria. The way she was treated, looked down on, and made fun of because of her stutter was heartbreaking. Her growth from the beginning of the book to the end was beautiful to read. The way Elijah treated her was so sweet. I loved when they were together on the page; their chemistry was so great! There were so many issues in their way, though. It seemed like there was no chance of them ever getting together.

I loved my second visit to Eagle Harbor and am very eager to read book three. It's about Rebekah and Gilbert, so I'm beyond intrigued to see how that plays out! I highly recommend this wonderful series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and comments are my own honest opinion.
