I started listening to this book on a library copy of the cassettes without realizing that it was abridged. I wanted the whole story so i picked up a copy of the book to finish, and enjoyed it immensely. I always enjoy Judith McNaught's novels both historical and comtemporary. She never disappoints with her character choices in my opinion. I originally skipped over this book when it came out because I didn't think it sounded like her usual work and didn't like the plot summary, but I figured that I wouldn't mind listening to it in my car. I am so glad I took the time to read the rest of the story. I just love a man who pines from afar and then finally gets his girl. He didn't have to push her into anyhting or be a jerk to get her to fall for him as so many authors make their leading men act. She saw his constant but distant devotion to her over the years by his actions that she didn't know about until now when he's walked back into her life and his emotional support while she grieves for an unfaithful husband he never liked. That cemented their relationship and showed her the difference between him and her late husband. No comparison. Michael wins hands down. The romance in the book doesn't really begin until a little more than half way thru but it definitely doesn't disappoint and the story overall is well written.

A good book for escaping as the story moves quickly and sucks you into it. My only problem is that it wasn't longer.

From Publishers Weekly
Night Whispers, McNaught's first romantic suspense novel (after a host of historicals), hit the charts hard, and this solid follow-up looks to do the same. Legendary stage actress Leigh Kendall is starring in a Broadway play, lives in a fabulous apartment and adores her husband, Logan Manning, a handsome, rich and virile businessman. After an afternoon performance, she's off to meet Logan in their country cabin, where he's promised an evening of lust and love in front of a roaring fire. Her life changes forever when she drives over an embankment in a snowstorm and barely escapes death. After waking up bruised and battered in the hospital, she finds Logan missing, her rival performing her part in the play, a creepy stalker sending expensive flowers and the evil Michael Valente, a business acquaintance of her husband's, being suspiciously attentive. Leigh checks out of the hospital and begins a frantic search for Logan aided by a team of detectives from the NYPD. As the search intensifies, she begins to learn secrets that expose her golden marriage as a fraud and her husband as a serial cheater. A romantic subplot features two of the cops investigating her case, the chiseled Lt. Mitchell McCord and rookie detective Samantha Littleton, who partner up in more ways than one. Leigh proves to be a stalwart if privileged heroine who finds a knight in shining armor in an unexpected corner of her past. The suspense is not terribly suspenseful, and several plot threads go uncollected, but romance is McNaught's bread and butter and she serves it up in abundance.

The is the first book by the author that I've read. It was a bit slow in the beginning but if you perservere you'll find that it's an enjoyable read.
