Review: Whispering Hills (Whispering Hills #1) by Taryn Browning

Book Blurb

Life and death, love and hate, friends and enemies...

For as long as she can remember, 17-year-old Alexis Forbes can hear the thoughts of others. Most recently, she is disturbed by the dark, unfamiliar voice of a frightening killer: callous, cunning, charismatic…and dead.

She hears his every sinister thought. But she can’t tell anyone. No one would believe her. Alexis is suddenly being haunted by a terrifying past she doesn’t remember, and a ghost with a serious score to settle. Even Chance, the gorgeous new guy she’s falling for, has his own ghostly secret. He’s definitely not like any guy she’s ever met. Alexis soon discovers she has a connection to the dead and it runs much deeper than she could ever imagine. And if the sociopathic entity has his way, she’ll finally be sentenced to the fate she escaped thirteen years ago.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Alexis keeps hearing this male voice in her head.  He is talking about killing someone and getting what is his. She can’t say anything because others would think she was crazy.  The guilt she feels is strong.
Chance is a new student at school.  He knows Alexis but she has no clue.  He wants to protect her.  Alexis is drawn to Chance.  She is excited each time she runs into him.  Yet when she comes face to face with his cousin Gabriel, Chance becomes fearful.  Gabriel is dangerous.  There are things that Alexis doesn’t know about them or herself.
As Alexis pushes for answers, the shocking secrets are revealed.  No one can prepare her for the outcome.
The story was very unique.  The author included murder, witches, ghosts and love.  It was a fun read that drew me in quickly.  The fact that Alexis could hear other’s thoughts was a great way to start the story.  She feels burdened by that ability.  Then Chance enters the story and he is mysterious.  I wasn’t sure if he was really a good guy or not.  I was not prepared for the direction the author went.  I haven’t read a story like this.  I liked the situations that Alexis and Chance found themselves.  It was fascinating how the author wrote their way out of them.

Of course Alexis was led by her heart most of the time.  As a result some of her decisions weren’t the smartest which would irritate me.  However I liked the story as a whole and can’t what to see what happens next.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
