Customer Reviews for Whispers of the Bayou - eBook
I have always loaned out my books in the "Million Dollar Mystery Series" by this author. It was one of my favorites. I liked it as well as "The O'Mally series". So when I read this I was really expecting a lot. It wasn't there. Nothing she has written since the million dollar mystery series has come close. The writing is not there. While I did finish it it wasn't enjoyable. Ihated to write this review but felt I should write whatever I feel about any book I read whether others feel the same or not.
This book was not what I expected at all. As a previous reviewer stated it was nightmarish,there was too much voodoo and not much reference to God at all. As stated I did not finish the book and actually put it out in the trash. I hope that the author's other books are not the same as this one.
I have read many other Christian mystery books and none disappointed me as this one did.
I had recently purchased and read The Amish Midwife and The Amish Nanny co-written by Mindy Starns Clark and I thought they were quite well done. I decided to try 4 of her stand-alone books including this one and WOW! I found them easy to read, and yet the storylines were unique and mysterious. The books had enough substance that it made me want to keep reading even if it was late at night :) Highly recommend all 4 of Mindy's stand-alone books (Whispers of the Bayou, Shadows of Lancaster County, Under the Cajun Moon and Secrets of Harmony Grove). She starts with a climax in the first few chapters and keeps the intensity there throughout the rest of the book! Next on my list to buy is her Million Dollar Mystery series and I can't wait!
I really enjoyed "Whispers on the Bayou" and would recommend it to others. Of course, being from the area that it was written about, helped me appreciate it more because I felt like I had been in the house before.
Excellent, excellent, excellent!!! I Love Mindy Starns Clarks books but I must say that this was my favorite. I could not put it down and did not know where the story was going to lead me. There were so many surprises plus her descriptions made you feel like you were in the story!!!
I really enjoyed this book. It had my interest from the moment I began reading. I am not familiar with author so for me I took a chance but I am truly satisfied and hope she has more books out there or more to come.
I didn't want to put this book down. There are several mysteries going on at the same time and Clark unravels everything beautifully and reverantly. I liked the historical aspects of this book as well.
Whispers of the Bayou by Mindy Starns ClarkI didnt think it was possible to bring back the feeling of being young, a library book in my handsClark has found a fountain of youth. At least for me with Whispers of the Bayou she transported me back to my youth, where I spent my summers devouring every Daphne Du Maurier the library had on their shelves. Clarks book had me gasping, quivering in terror and when the story ended I didnt want to read another book for several days. I just wanted to savor the glorious feeling of having read a well-written suspense story.Kudos to Clark I will be purchasing her other books soon. And my copy of Whispers of the Bayou will not be lent to anyone, so dont ask. This is a keeper!
