Welcome to my stop on the Oxford Whispers blog tour.  This tour is hosted my AToMR tours.  My stop includes my review of this story.

Author: Marion Croslydon
Release date: October 8th, 2012

Book Description:


Madison LeBon is dead set against the dead. She has vowed to ignore her Voodoo-stamped heritage and the psychic gift passed down through her Louisiana family. The world of the living is where she wants to belong.

But her resolution shatters when the tragic lovers in a painting—the subject of her first history class at Oxford—begin to haunt her. The lovers warn her against their own nemesis, a Puritan from the English Civil War.

College becomes more complicated when Madison falls hard for Rupert Vance, a troubled aristocrat and descendant of one of the characters in the painting. With the spirit of a murderer after her, she realizes that her own first love may also be doomed…


My Review

I loved everything about this book.  It was amazing!!!!  Marion crafted a story so unlike others that it immediately grabbed my attention and wouldn't let go.  Oxford Whispers was well though out and well developed.  I enjoyed how the author switched from past to present.  Sometimes it isn't written well and I can't stay focused, but that didn't happen with this book.  I couldn't wait to read those parts.  The story was written beautifully.  I was drawn into the story and was able to see what the characters saw,, feel what they felt.  

I loved Madison as a character.  While trying to run from what she is suppose to come, she ends up in place where it started confronting it head on.  What can I say about Rupert.  I thing the only two words I can think of are gorgeous and sexy!!!  I couldn't wait to read the scenes with him in it.  He i=was my favorite character.  I loved the swoon-worthy scenes.  I am a huge romance junkie so that made the book even better for me.  I definitely want some more Rupert and Madison time.

Oxford Whispers was full of romance, suspense and mystery.  There wasn't anything about this book I didn't like.  I was able to read this book in one sitting. Like I said, once I started, I couldn't put it down.  I am hoping that there will be a book 2.  Please let there be a sequel!!!  I recommend this book to anyone who wants a great romance with a book full of magic, mystery and secrets.  This is a book that I will definitely reread.

Have to point out that the cover is just gorgeous!!!  I love book covers!!!!

In addition to being an author, I work as an entrepreneur, wife and mother-of-one but spend a good deal of time with books, DVDs and listening to my mp3 player; all for the sake of inspiration, of course.

My debut series, The Oxford Trilogy, has been a blast to write because I can indulge in my favorite types of music: Country and English rock.

My main goal as a writer is to make readers dream bigger and cause their hearts to beat a little faster.
Since my writing is all about sharing dreams and stories, I love connecting with fellow readers and authors.
