He’s eager to prove himself, but quickly distracted by the reappearance of his first love, who also happens to be his boss’s granddaughter. It’s been years since they promised each other forever, and neither of them know how to pick up where they left off or if they should forget it ever happened.

This was a sweet book. I was excited to see that Mandi Blake was writing a new series and it was such a good start to the series. Truth is a Whisper is the first book in Mandi Blake’s series, Wolf Creek Ranch. And I am so excited to see how this series and these characters will turn out!
Ava had gone through a lot in her life. Her mother was not the kindest woman and Ava had been beaten down most of her life. She didn’t know her own worth. However, coming back to Wolf Creek Ranch changed everything for her. She found her family again and a place to belong. I liked Ava’s growth as a character, she learned to trust God and those around her. Ava was a sweet character and she hated conflict, she wanted to help those around her. It was cute to see how Jameson and Ava connected, Jameson made Ava feel safe. However Ava will have to come to terms with her mother and learn that there were secrets that kept her from her family on the ranch.
I was super excited to read Jameson’s book! He had been in other books and I couldn’t wait to read more about him. He was such a sweetheart in this book. I loved his hardworking attitude and how he cared for Ava. He had fallen hard for her before and it was definitely cute to read about him interacting with her. Jameson wanted the best for Ava and he wanted her to see her worth and hope in Christ. However Jameson had to learn to trust God and see that he did not have to prove himself to anyone.
Jameson and Ava were a fun couple to read about. They had their problems, but I liked how they trusted each other and worked it out together. I also adored Ava’s grandfather and the other characters on the ranch. I can’t wait to see what other stories Blake writes about these characters! I really enjoy how Blake is able to weave faith and God in so seamlessly without making it over-bearing.
Truth is a Whisper was a great book! I would definitely recommend it! Mandi Blake is definitely an author to check out. Truth is a Whisper is a clean Christian contemporary romance.
