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?

Book 2 in the Whisper Lake series is awesome! I love the characters that Barbara Freethy creates. I want to be friends with all of them. Chelsea and Brodie are no exception. She has a heart of gold and he is pretty amazing with his selfless support. I like that there's a little suspense in this book because that's my favorite kind of story to read. I'm very curious to continue reading this series and see what's in store for the rest of the gang. =)

I am loving this new series by Barbara. She has a way of telling a story that captures your interest and pulls you in. Brodie and Cheslea have both experienced the life of fame and all that comes with it. They are both acclimating to living a “normal” life and starting over. The connection between them is instant and develops into a great friendship and romance. This is a sweet and sexy story combined with mystery and intrigue that kept my full attention. Love all the characters and catching up with them. Can’t wait to get more of this series! I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book.

From Olympic contender to small town cop, from Country music fame to substitute teacher, Barbara Freethy’s newest in the Whisper Lake series, My Wildest Dream, tells us how quickly our dreams of greatness can be lost. Brodie, professional skier on his way to possible Olympic Gold, falls and his dreams go down with him. Now he’s taken up law enforcement in Whisper Lake, the same town his grandfather once patrolled. Is he settled or just settling? Chelsea, with her sweet voice, makes country music fans believe the words she sings, but is that beneficial or can it be harmful? Now she is substitute teaching in Whisper Lake, after a heartbreaking secret makes her run to family and leave her music career behind. Now they’re working together to find an arsonist and to figure out if their dreams are behind them or if they’re just beginning to realize new dreams. Arson, mystery, an old boyfriend, a well-loved mentor, and parental interference all come into play! I enjoyed Brodie and Chelsea’s journey, and we were introduced to many new players in what I hope will be another long running series! I can’t wait to read the next book set in Whisper Lake!

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.

Brodie and Chelsea meet in a pretty unusual way and although they both have pasts that seem to haunt them they keep finding themselves together. Chelsea fights it but Brodie is persistent and she comes to rely on him and look forward to spending time with him. In reality they both have a lot in common and understand each other in a way nobody else can. They've both been famous and in the spotlight but have stepped away and reinvented themselves. While they learn to trust each other and stop running from the past, they are also involved in a mystery involving an arsonist. Great story about second chances, trust and seeing things in a different light. I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.

ARC for honest review with no compensation My Wildest Dream is book 2 in the Whisper Lake series by Barbara Freethy about two people who were at the top of their careers then the unthinkable happens... Brodie McGuire, former Olympic hopeful, downhill skier is badly injured and Chelsea Cole, former country music superstar leave their high profile careers behind to start over in Whisper Lake. He as a cop and she as a music teacher. They end up working together to find an arsonist who is setting fires in vacant homes with the help of one of her young students along with an underlying story of whether small-town life is for them or will the past change their futures and put them on a totally different path apart? Only time will tell...

Chelsea Cole is trying to live a quiet life in the small town of Whisper Lake after giving up a successful country music career. She was at the height of her career when a tragedy made her give up her music career and begin a new career teaching music in an elementary school in Whisper Lake. She tells no one what made her give up her career, not even her family. Brodie McGuire was living his dream. He was at the top of his career and was training for the Olympic Games when a devastating accident ended his chance to go for the gold. He is satisfied to be a cop in Whisper Lake. Both Chelsea and Brodie are trying to reinvent themselves with new careers. When Brodie moves into a house across the street from Chelsea, they both feel an instant attraction. Whisper Lake is being targeted by an arsonist. One of Chelsea’s students, a seven year old autistic boy, is drawing pictures of the fire that took place across the street from where he lives. ..a new picture every day, each one with more detail. Chelsea can’t help but think that the child saw something that night that might help solve the case. Ms. Freethy has done it again. My Wildest Dream has just the right mix of romance and suspense to keep the reader interested from the first chapter to the final page. I found myself putting the book down because I didn’t want it to end, only to pick it back up because I had to know how it ended. I loved everything about this book. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Visiting Whisper Lake is like coming home and reuniting with old friends. I recommend My Wildest Dream and also Book 1 of the series, Always With Me. You won’t be disappointed.

My Wildest Dream is the newest book in the Whisper Lake series. I always enjoy Barbara Freethy books because they have interesting plot lines and great love stories. This particular book has at least three different plots going on. Of course there is a wonderful love story between Chelsea, a country western singer and Brodie, a cop. But why did Chelsea give up a successful singing career. What is she hiding? And will Brodie, injured while training for Olympic ski gold, stay in Whisper Lake or go back to his first love, skiing? Then there is the problem of an arsonist setting houses on fire around Whisper Lake. All will be revealed in time. This was a very exciting book with lots of interesting storylines to follow. I really enjoyed it and felt like I knew the people described in the book.

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.

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.

Destiny was their greatest temptation. Who knew that heartache was on the horizon? What began as a chance encounter becomes a treacherous pathway to romance. Tragedy haunts her, regrets shadow him and passion lures them into a mystery as dangerous as their feelings for each other. Freethy captivates with a sensuous game of tainted hearts and tempting romance. My Wildest Dream is a hotbed of intriguing storytelling. Brodie and Chelsea are sure to get under your skin.
