    1. WHISPERS OF WARNING is the second book in Jessica Estevao's A Change of Fortune Mystery series, though it can easily be read standalone. This enjoyable character-driven novel set at the turn of the last century is as much historical fiction as it is mystery, with just a touch of the paranormal.The women's suffrage movement of the late 1890s and the popularity of spiritualism at the time take center stage in this book. Clever and unconventional protagonist Ruby Proulx lives and works at her aunt' [...]

    2. I loved Jessica Estavao’s first book in this series, Whispers Beyond the Veil, and I have been anxiously awaiting her next one. As soon as I was approved for it by the publisher, I stopped reading my current read and started Whispers of Warning. Thankfully, Estavao’s second book did not disappoint, and I enjoyed it every bit as much as I did Whispers Beyond the Veil. To top it all off, the ending is spectacular; I was so pleased with the last paragraphs. Kudos to Estevao for writing such a m [...]

    3. Absolutely loving this series. Full review to come closer to release date.*EDITED TO ADD REVIEW*4.5 Stars!I was eagerly awaiting the release to the sequel Whispers Beyond the Veil. Having loved Estevao's debut historical mystery, I couldn't wait for more. I can say with absolutely conviction the Whispers of Warning was everything I was hoping it would be. A touch of mystery. A hint of danger, and the historical feel that I most certainly crave with a slight edge of the paranormal to really keep [...]

    4. The second book in this series continues the trend of not having the murder happen until the midpoint of the book. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but my personal preference is to have things kick off within the first few chapters. As is, the investigation ends up feeling a bit too rushed and the discovery of clues too convenient. The characters are okay though I still feel they're lacking in emotional depth. Ruby, our heroine, is also still keeping some important secrets from the people who [...]

    5. Between plans to open the new pier in Old Orchard, Maine, and suffragist Sophronia Foster Eldridge being in town, things are busy for Ruby Proulx. The Belden, the hotel her aunt owns, is completely booked. Then a guest is murdered. With the police focused on the pier opening, Sophronia finds herself trying to track down the killer. Can she do it?Once again, I found myself caught up in turn of last century Maine. It’s a great look at life back then. The mystery took a little while to really tak [...]

    6. A historical thriller, the second book in the series and a new author for me. The history information is impressive and there are several themes which will take you on a journey back in times.Ruby Proulx is settling into her new life as the physic medium at Belden, her Aunt Honoria's seaside hotel. A leader of the suffragist movement and a spiritualist, Sophronia Foster Elderidge arrives at the hotel. She plans a march for women's right to vote. The march takes places and violence erupts Later S [...]

    7. This was the second in a series in which I hadn't read the first book, but that in no way impacted my ability to enjoy this one. I will say that so much of the first book was referenced I did wonder how much of it was actually spoilers. I enjoyed this story immensely and found the time period and location to be really interesting. The characters themselves were excellently crafted and the bit of psychic spin they were centered against was right up my alley. My only issue with this murder mystery [...]

    8. Whispers of Warning by Jessica Estevao is the second story in A Change of Fortune Mystery series. Ruby Proulx and her Aunt Honoria are thrilled when suffragist and spiritualist, Sophronia Foster Eldridge checks into the Belden for a month long stay (quite a coupe for the hotel). At a suffrage rally, Sophronia states she is writing a book about corruption and secret dealings by powerful men. She will sell her manuscript to the highest bidder and use the money to further suffrage movement. Despite [...]

    9. A turn of the century [1899] story which involves Ruby, a medium, in a seaside hotel in Maine. The hotel is known for its psychics, spiritualists, etc. It is also a time for suffragists and a well-known one, along with many others, arrive in the seaside town to spread the word on women's right to vote. When the well-known woman is murdered, Ruby takes it upon herself to do some investigation. The plot is not difficult to follow and the characters are of a variety of ages and types. This historic [...]

    10. almost 3.5 starsSlow to get into the story. There is a lot of set up before the murder takes place at about halfway through. The characters are interesting with room to grow. The late nineteenth century time period is ideal for the hotel catering to spiritualists. I will definitely read more in the series.I received a copy of this title from the publisher and voluntarily shared my thoughts here.

    11. I received a free e-reader ARC of this book through the Random First to Read program.I didn't realize this was #2 in a series. It can stand alone since all of the author's comments to earlier events are explained in enough detail. I would prefer to read books in order though.This historical fiction is during the suffragette movement. Honoria owns a seaside hotel and to make up for being a smaller business, she stands out by being a spiritual establishment with her own medium and other persons wh [...]

    12. "Whispers of Warning" is the second novel in Ms.Estevao's "Change of Fortune" Mystery series. This was the first novel in this series that I have read and I was not disappointed. It works well as a stand alone, but I want to go back and read the first one. Ruby Proulx is staying at her aunt Honoria's "metaphysically" hotel that caters to a certain type clientele. Ruby herself is a medium who is coming into her own powers. She finds herself in awe of a certain guest who is staying at her aunt's h [...]

    13. A slow and steady mystery where the character development is more important than the actual mystery. Which ended up working incredibly well for the author.I enjoyed reading the thought processes of both leading lady, Ruby, and leading man, Yancey. I was so into seeing how the relationships developed and what was being revealed about several characters that I wasn't even particularly interested in seeing who the murderer was. It might also be that I felt no connection whatsoever to the victim, bu [...]

    14. Note: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.I read the first book in the Change of Fortune mystery series (Whispers Beyond the Veil) a month back in preparation for reading this, which I had requested from NetGalley based on the cover alone. I found Whispers Beyond the Veil to be a fun, intriguing start to a new series, and I was excited to get to the second book. As we all know, the whims of the reader can sometimes run amok, but having finally read this, [...]

    16. Possibly 3.5 stars. I liked this book. But I also had some reservations regarding it. Most disconcerting was the fact that not until about two-thirds of the way through the book did it give information showing exactly when it is set. Not even the blurb on the book or on the author's website includes that information. There are a few internal clues, but not terribly specific: Spiritualism is very popular, women did not yet have the vote, and Maine was a dry state. The other problem I had was that [...]

    17. Ruby has a good heart in spite of her con-artist rearing from her no-good father. She is afraid people will see through the attempts to be good and see the con she used to be. She doesn't even trust her own psychic abilities. Aunt Honoria is the family she always wanted, and will do anything for her. Officer Warren Yancy provides the potential love interest, he struggles with his growing feelings for her. Lucinda (Lucy) is Officer Yancy's sister who has become Ruby's fast friend and is a great s [...]

    18. This is a very good series. It is probably one of the most creative backgrounds/plots I have seen in a long time. I have to admit that when I saw this was available in the First to Read program, but the second in a series, I ran out and got the first book to read first. The first one is called Whispers Beyond The Veil. Now, you don't really need to read the first book, but I recommend it. You'll get to know the characters and the background a lot better. I am assuming that the way it ended that [...]

    19. Whispers of Warning is the second book in A Change of Fortune Mystery series. I had not had the pleasure of reading the first novel, Whispers Beyond the Veil. Despite that I was able to jump right in without feeling as though I missed something. In this delightful series the heroine, Ruby Proulx, is a physic who finds herself from time to time drawn into the middle of a mystery, and what else can this modern girl do but solve it.Whispers of Warning is set during the 1800's during the women's suf [...]

    20. I enjoyed the second book in this series just as much as the first. This is quickly shaping up to become one of my favourite series.I love the character of Ruby. She is smart, and determined and despite her very checkered past, has the best of intentions most of the time. But I like that she is far from perfect and has moral dilemmas to deal with even as she tries so hard to go straight and be worthy of the wonderful new life her aunt and the Belden are offering her. It makes for very entertaini [...]

    21. Although the second in the Change of Fortune series, Whispers of Warning functioned well as a stand-alone. I liked the setting--a spiritualist hotel with echoes of the real spiritualist towns of Lily Dale, NY and Cassadaga, Florida. Ruby Proulx is happy to be living with her aunt in a hotel which offers various psychic readings to its guests. Ruby is a "clairaudient"--a voice guides her talent as a medium, and her abilities are growing.When Sophronia Foster Eldridge arrives as a guest, Ruby is i [...]

    22. There's a lot of (well-done) backstory in this, making me think I should have started with #1. If I had, though, might not the backstory in #2 have become repetitive? At any rate, Ruby is now living with her Aunt Honoria and helping in the hotel, which has a niche as a destination for those who believe in spiritualism. Ruby has some gifts, but more skills honed by her years in medicine shows with her fraud of a father, and acts as the hotel medium. She and her best friend Lucy are excited when a [...]

    23. Unfortunately I couldn't get into this book. When I applied through First to Read I did not realize it was the second in a series. It made it hard to know what was going on. So it truly is not the auther's fault but my own. It's very hard to start a series in the middle of it. It took me longer to read as I kept reading a few pages and stopping. I did this until I finally made myself finish it. Her writing seems good enough but hard to get to know a character that has already been built in a pre [...]

    24. The second in a paranormal mystery series about Ruby Proulx, a reluctant psychic working as a medium at her aunt's hotel. In this version, a prominent suffragette/medium (based, I suspect on Victoria Woodhouse), arrives, eager to use Ruby's skills to advance the cause but things go wrong (of course) and the suffragette winds up dead. With the police chief happy to close the book on this annoying woman, Ruby winds up taking point. This would get four stars if I like cozy series, but my taste work [...]

    25. This was the first novel in this series I have read since I didn't realize this was the second book. I can say I wasn't disappointed. It was a very good stand alone novel. Ruby is a very interesting and entertaining character along with Officer Yancey and her aunt Honoria. I love the way the characters develop and the way the past, with the women's suffrage movement, comes to life within the pages. Will definitely recommend to my friends. I received a free digital download as part of Penguin's F [...]

    26. I enjoyed this even more than the first. I get annoyed by the trope of (view spoiler)[ empty guilt. We all know from the first book that the only thing that Ruby did wrong was run when her father's contraption ended up killing her friend (voices warning aside). So the fact that she has done nothing but help / protect others in these books means (at least to me) that we can stop beating the "must hide my secrets" horse and allow it to become less of a driving force in the narrative. I truly hope [...]

    27. The only down side to this book is that it’s over! It hit all the right notes, balancing interesting characters, setting, good mystery and still maybe a possibility for future romance, perhaps? I can’t wait to read what mysteries are solved in future books. RubyProulx has become on of my favorite sleuthing females, along with Veronica Speedwell, Sarah Brant Malloy, Lady Darby, Charlotte Holmes, et al.

    28. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review of this book. I highly enjoyed this book. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from the description, but I loved it! It is a little overly descriptive in some parts, hence the 4 stars, but it has a great story, a good twist, great characters, and is set against the suffrage movement. Ruby Proulx is a wonderful young woman who is trying to find her place in the world of the Belden with her Aunt and the rest of the [...]

    29. Actual rating 2.5 starsI received an advance copy from Penguin's First to Read program. I found the story to be very slow moving, and the crime didn't occur until about 100 pages into the book. There were some interesting bits about the Hay Fever Society and the suffrage movement, but the plot didn't hold my attention. This is the second book in the series, but I didn't feel that it was necessary to read the first to become acquainted with the characters.
