Other than therapy, volunteering, and helping the elderly couple she used to know it seems not enough was mentioned. I know she was already used to having very little but I would have liked a little more detail. Jacqueline Bradshaw That would be nice to see woven into a third sequel. This is my 2nd read of the Whispered Word. Even better the second time.

Not only is there a natural hot springs and renowned spa available but many of the shopkeepers in town have their own signature way of healing visitors. Nora Pennington is one of those shopkeepers being the owner of Miracle Books where she considers herself a bit of a bibliotherapist being able to talk with a customer and since which book would help them with their own problems. However, shortly after Abilene comes into their lives the body of a local woman is found it comes to question if Abilene had anything to do with the murder so Nora and the rest of the ladies do what they can to find out the truth.
The Secret, Book, and Scone Society series is as much of a cozy mystery read as it is an emotional one. The setting of Miracle Springs gives a whole cast of characters with their own emotional story to tell. But along with the healing theme of the books readers will also be pleased with the bookstore setting and mentions of all kinds of book titles and quotes infused in the stories. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley. Oct 07, Lisa Morin rated it it was amazing Shelves: culinary , favorite-cozy-mysteries , favorite-fiction , favorite , favorite-author.

I was blown away with this story. I could feel the pain of each character, whether it was mental anguish or physical pain, the author described the emotions in such detail, that it was easy to get caught up in each of their stories. Nora Pennington is a wonderful character. Her story is tragic, but teaches her the lessons of life and she experiences each new day with courage. Her friends, Estella, June and Hester are special in their own way, and the ladies all meld and work well together. In this story, we are introduced to Abilene, a young girl who has lived with neglect, torture and pain.
Her story is so touching, you will find yourself wanting to reach out and help her as well. Even after I was finished with the book, I found my mind wandering back to the story, to the characters and the ending. This book touched my heart and even though this is a cozy mystery, it brings out many emotions that will leave you with a good feeling.
Ellery Adams weaves a tale so realistic, you will feel like you are in Miracle Springs, visiting Hester and June, stopping in to see Estella for a wash and cut, and of course browsing the books in Nora's shop. I would definitely order a drink and a book pocket. Nov 19, Judy rated it really liked it. This was a fun cozy mystery set in Miracle Springs, North Carolina!

They are four close friends who support each other and have already solved at least one mystery together it's not really described in the book, but since this is 2 in the series you know there was a first. This mystery involves a young teen, Abilene, who needs help and a murder that happened around the time of her arrival in town.
My heart went out to Abilene who had a heartbreaking story. The Society's members are strong women who support each other and their community. They are interesting characters - especially Nora who owns the bookstore and is scarred by fire.
The theme of healing runs throughout the book. View 2 comments.
