Description

From the author of the popular Million Dollar Mysteries and Smart Chick Mysteries comes a new stand-alone novel full of hidden staircases, buried secrets, and the promise of hope found in knowing God.

Miranda Miller wasn't looking for the news the day the letter came. But, trying to survive in troubled circumstances, she welcomes the chance to change her location for a period of time. The letter informs her that her grandparents' estate is finally about to become hers. She immediately heads down to Louisiana and the old house by the bayou. There Miranda finds secrets that lead to life-changing revelations.

This suspenseful story reminiscent of old Gothic tales has a complex mystery and a vivid sense of the Deep South. It shows how God can take the darkest circumstances and use them to light a bright path leading to the future.

I devoured this book because it was so difficult to put it down. I don't read a great deal of what is considered 'Christian Fiction' but Whispers of the Bayou isn't heavy-handed as some books in that genre. The characters are so well done that I cared what happened to them. Miranda is a great heroine, her journey not just to Louisiana, but to really know herself makes for a wonderful story. The mystery kept me intrigued and the twists and turns to the solution were most interesting. The history and culture of the Cajun people that is used throughout the book is fascinating and I could tell how much effort the author put into her research. If you want a book that will grab you right from the first page and make you loathe any interruption while reading, then Whispers of the Bayou is the book for you. Brava Ms. Clark!" -Kay Martinez "Mindy Starns Clark is a master of mystery and suspense and those unexpected twists that make your spine tingle. In Whispers of the Bayou, you'll be flying through the pages as Miranda Miller uncovers the many secrets in her past. And you won't be able to put down this book until you find out who is trying to steal the treasure guarded by Miranda's family for two hundred years." -Melanie Dobson, author of The Black Cloister and Together for Good "Delightfully entertaining, emotionally heart-rending, and immensely suspenseful, Mindy Starns Clark's Whispers of the Bayou will transport you to the bayous of Louisiana and leave you breathless...There are so many surprising twists and turns in this story that there should be a warning on the cover that reading this book will cause loss of sleep because you will not be able to put it down. Bravo to Ms. Clark for an excellent read." -MaryLu Tyndall, author of The Redemption, The Reliance, and The Restitution Mindy Starns Clark is the bestselling author of more than 20 books, both fiction and nonfiction, with over a million copies sold. Mindy and her husband, John, have two adult children and live in Pennsylvania. www.mindystarnsclark.com "Whispers of the Bayou had me from the first page. Gripping, edgy and full of Louisiana folklore and wonderfully southern gothic suspense. Trust me-this is a good book. Seriously good. Buy it. You won't be able to put it down!" -Lenora Worth, author of Secret Agent Minister "Whispers of the Bayou is a gripping read. I devoured this book because it was so difficult to put it down.
