"Tragedy haunts her, regrets shadow him and passion lures them into a mystery as dangerous as their feelings for each other. In MY WILDEST DREAM, Freethy captivates with a sensuous game of tainted hearts and tempting romance." Isha 

Brodie McGuire was a bold, fearless skier whose dreams of Olympic gold vanished in one career-ending fall. Now, he's following in the footsteps of his grandfather as a cop in his hometown of Whisper Lake. Surrounded by the mountains he once conquered, Brodie is trying to find stability and purpose in his new future...when a case brings him together with a beautiful woman, whose cool reserve intrigues him more than he'd like.  
Chelsea Cole was a country music singer on her way to the top when her music inspired a tragedy. Unable to face her fans or the spotlight, she went into hiding, reinventing herself as a small-town music teacher. But Whisper Lake has its secrets, and a problem with one of Chelsea's students introduces her to a brash and altogether too sexy cop who wreaks havoc on her plans for a quiet, drama-free life. 

As Chelsea and Brodie work together to solve a mystery, sparks fly between them. Brodie tempts Chelsea out of her safe cocoon, but will more pain be waiting? And when Brodie pushes Chelsea to find her voice again, will she be one more dream he has to give up?

  • Excellent read

    Thrown together by a night cat capture. Brodie and Chelsea each finding their way through past turmoil, find the path to their future. There is arson, stalking, romance and the HEA ending. I did have problems finishing this book, not because there is a problem with the story, but there is nothing new here. As always, Barbara Freethy, writes an excellent story. Add this one to your list.
  • A great continuation of the Whisper Lake series!

    The action started on the first page and followed up with a bit of a mystery throughout the book. This was a great story about Brodie and Chelsea overcoming obstacles and reinventing their lives. Along their journey they realize what is most important in life while they make decisions about their futures. I enjoyed the storylines of some of the other characters in the previous book in the series too. I loved the beginning of the book, and I thought the end of the story was so touching it made me tear up. I love the light humor Barbara puts in her writing and the small-town setting makes me feel part of the community. I definitely recommend this book, and look forward to the next book in the series.

    Barbara Freethy My Wildest Dream I am loving this Whisper Lake series. Chelsea and Brodie meet in a unique way in the middle of the night. Both have had success early in life but no longer gain pleasure from those activities. Their lives seem to “parallel” each other as they come to find out. Brodie has to work hard for Chelsea’s trust but as her past comes roaring back he becomes her go to person. This beautifully written book has the element of surprise and intrigue we have come to know from author Barbara Freethy. 5 stars for Brodie and Chelsea’s story and this new series.
