A Whisper of Danger
An long ago estranged husband and wife and a son unknown to the husband. The relationship between the couple evolves and reconciles. The son is at times laugh out loud funny. The story is Christ focused. Feb 21, Karen Reece rated it really liked it. I have read this book so many times and each time I find something different. This book was such a page turner that kept me on the edge of my seat.
Mar 31, Betsy rated it really liked it Shelves: I thought the first book in this series A Kiss of Adventure was a fun quick read. This book is different. More of a mystery, less adventure.
The main character is Jessica Tillie's sister from the first book. She and her son make a big change in there life by moving from London to Africa when Jessica is left a house there by a trusted art professor. Nothing goes as planned, and to top it off she runs into Rick McTaggert who was and actually is still her husband. He left her 10 years earlier a I thought the first book in this series A Kiss of Adventure was a fun quick read.
He left her 10 years earlier and a week later she found out she was expecting a baby. Rick doesn't know about that, but has spent the last 10 years growing up, getting things in order, and looking for his wife. I'm always a sucker for second chance romances and this one fit the bill. It is a Christian romance and as such there are strong elements of conversion along with themes of forgiveness and repentance and honesty. But I think the story stands well on it's own. I love the theme of family and some of the best parts of the story is when the point of view switches to her 10 year old son Splinter.
His take on how the romance between his parents is hilarious not that he knows it's his dad yet. I was a good read and an interesting mystery though some the ending seemed to be a bit convenient in the reveal. Mar 02, Wendy Sparkes rated it it was amazing Shelves: A newly inherited house, a murdered professor, a sunken wreck, a lot of people harbouring bitterness I love how Africa comes alive in this series! A fun yet poignant story The Treasure of Zanzibar told a touching tale of love, betrayal, danger, and forgiveness. I loved the shark-free, amazing beach in the backyard of Jessie and her son's African home, and the intrigue of ancient sunken ships and lost treasure.

The miraculous appearance of a long-lost love was bittersweet, yet lovely all the same. I wasn't too delighted over the murder parts And there was something I bit lacking A fun yet poignant story And there was something I bit lacking in the ending, I feel. But overall, a fantastic little tale. I enjoyed it, a modern romance with some interesting twists, The Treasure of Zanzibar. Jessica Thornton receives word that the estate of her art teacher on Zanzibar has been left to her.
Not understanding why, she decides to move there with her son Spencer, nicknamed Splinter. Shortly after arriving, she encounters her estranged husband who, it turns out, is associated with a sunken ship recovery in the bay just behind the house. Jessica wants nothing to do with Rick but agrees to give him a chance to explain.
What he says and asks of her shakes her to the core. Predictable in th Jessica Thornton receives word that the estate of her art teacher on Zanzibar has been left to her.
A Whisper of Danger (Treasures of the Heart, book 2) by Catherine Palmer
Predictable in the sense that you know all will work out in the end, but it's the getting there that makes for a good read. May 29, Mary rated it really liked it. Even if there were parts that seemed a little rushed, overall this is a very well-written interesting book of trusting God for whatever His plans are for your life. It makes you think about how sometimes he does do miraculous things in people's lives.
I know, I know, life doesn't always turn out that sweet after abandoned marriages and single women being content for ten years without a date. But, it can happen and how nice to read it in the form of suspenseful love and family type story! Thanks, Even if there were parts that seemed a little rushed, overall this is a very well-written interesting book of trusting God for whatever His plans are for your life. Thanks, Catherine Palmer, for writing this kind of book! I read it all last night before bed.
Jan 25, Sue rated it really liked it Shelves: A slightly surreal start to this book - Jess decides to move to a remote island after being left a mansion.. However, an exciting story follows with some romance, a 'whodunit' murder to solve, and the thrill of diving to discover a wrecked ship.

The Christian content isn't too overdone, and although the characters are a bit flat, and the plot perhaps a bit unlikely, I found it hard to put down once I was half way through. Dec 10, Ann Miller rated it it was amazing. A Whisper of Danger, a tale of reconciliation, is my favorite Palmer title. Romance, intrigue, faith, hero on a motorcycle, and an irrepressible kid--this book has it all. Palmer is heartwarming always, but this book got under my skin in a good way. I read it years ago and still remember the reconciliation scene. Feb 10, Hannah Waeni rated it it was amazing. A story of reconciliation and hope.
It felt right at home when the author gave descriptions of Zanzibar, Kenya and Tanzania even mentioning the Kikuyu and Kamba ethnic groups from Kenya. I come from the Kamba ethnic group! I feel she researched well the background. I love Mama Hannah's character, steadfast yet fragile Feb 19, Melody rated it really liked it. I do like Catherine Palmer's work in general. This particular book again is part of her adventure line and I am not an adventure fan. Good story line as far as relationships and I like her characters.

I can relate to some of the dilemmas they faced. But diving for buried treasure just not a draw for me. I did like it better than book 1 in the series though. Apr 08, Melissa rated it liked it Shelves: I have really enjoyed this series, but this is probably my least favorite of the three books. The characters seemed less believeable, and less likable.

The end seemed wrapped up a little too nicely. I read this years ago, so I don't remember it, except that I thought it was exciting at the time. But it's probably one of those shallow in the romance department, so I'm giving it two or three stars.
