*Review* Unrequited Love by Mary Reason Theriot

Genre: Horror/Paranormal Romance
Published: January 11, 2014
Pages: 332
Ages: 18+


Forbidden love… Murder…Ghosts… Hidden treasure… Holy water… Voodoo… 

All of these take place at Whispering Willows. 

Whispering Willows Plantation was a place that knew love, loss, heartache, and anger. When things take place that causes a chain reaction that affects not only Whispering Willows, but also the people who live there, you learn that sometimes people leave more behind than they realize. 

Caitlyn Reed’s life changed drastically when she met Gregory Ferris, and not for the best in the long run. When she finds out what Gregory has done at Whispering Willows, she decides she has to do what she can to release the evil that he has left on the amazing home. What she didn’t realize was that it wasn’t just Gregory’s evil that had taken over the home, but someone else’s--someone from the past. 

Murder isn’t something that Pointe Creole hasn’t dealt with in the past. When a new string of murders leaves the police with no leads, that’s when Caitlyn realizes there might just be more to the noises the old house is making. 

With the handyman, Scott, by her side, Caitlyn embarks on her mission to rid the house of the evil. While at the same time, trying to ensure that the murderer that is on the loose isn’t after her as well. 
Will Caitlyn be able to free Whispering Willows of the evil that haunts it, or will it be too 
much for her? Are the police of Pointe Creole going to be able to catch the serial killer before another woman is found? 

If you enjoy reading suspenseful books that have a few twists of romance, murder, and paranormal, then join the journey through time on Whispering Willows Plantation. 


I was hired to proofread this book post publication. The only feedback I provided was on spelling and grammar. If you feel that my connection with this book makes my review unreliable, so be it, but this is my honest review.

This book immediately made me wonder if it was a sequel to another book. Based on the fact that it's subtitle is The Secrets of Whispering Willows Book 2 makes me believe it is, and I'm quite interested in reading the first book. I'm hoping that it will be filled with all sorts of gory horror, and I'd love to sink my teeth into a good gory horror novel. Unrequited Love did leave me with some unanswered questions, but those questions don't actually have to be answered for this story to make sense, they're just things I really want to know because I'm curious like that.

I spent a fair amount of time while reading this book wondering just what had happened at the plantation in the past. There are allusions, but I really want the gory details. So even though I haven't read book one in this series yet, I feel like you would probably enjoy this book more, if you read Horror in the Night first. My wondering didn't detract from the story though, it just gave me more to try and puzzle through; one more mystery to try and solve.

Overall I give this book 5 out of 5 stars because it was satisfying on it's own but also made me want more. If you enjoy paranormal mystery with a little bit of romance, you'll most likely enjoy this book. - Katie
