About A Smile in a Whisper
A Smile in a Whisper is a dual timeline love story ideal for fans of Christina Lauren's Love and Other Words and Carley Fortune's Every Summer After.

Not all farewells are forever...

Evie Sutherland throws herself into everything. Like many on Scotland's picturesque Orkney Islands, she works several jobs: managing her family's shop, researching genealogy for tourists, and writing historical romance novels. Evie aces most challenges—except love. With a childhood diagnosis of Crohn's disease and a disastrous dating history, Evie has convinced herself that guys won't date the "sick girl" and the blame falls on the shoulders of her first love, a famous boy from London who spent his summers on her island.

To the outside world, Nikolai Balfour lives a charmed life. Starring in a popular British TV series as a teen, young Nick stole fans' hearts from the Isle of Wight to Shetland. However, that was a lifetime ago, and the years since have been filled with "Didn't you used to be..." moments, career wrong-turns, and empty relationships. Now finding success behind the cameras, Nick is still racked with regret and guilt over how things ended with the Orcadian girl he'd loved and left behind.

But when a television series filming in Orkney blows Nick back into Evie's quiet life, they're forced to face their heartbreaking past and revisit old secrets that should never have been kept.

Unfolding in alternating past and present timelines, A Smile in a Whisper is a touching story of first love and second chances, and the enduring summer memories that shape us.
