Cricket Creek, Kentucky, is a sweet river town known for its theater, shopping, and cuisine. But tough times are affecting the residents of the local retirement community—until a handsome hero shows up…
Savannah Perry loves her job as social director of Whisper’s Edge, a retirement community on the picturesque waterfront of Cricket Creek. Raised in foster care, twenty-nine-year-old Savannah feels treasured and loved by the retired residents, who treat her as their adopted granddaughter and rotate having her over for dinner. But the community is struggling to stay afloat financially—until Tristan McMillan swoops into town, rescues a dog, and, well, saves the day…
Business-minded Tristan bought Whisper’s Edge from his estranged grandfather to prove his worth to the curmudgeon and to turn a quick profit. He never expected to fall for the charms of a village of crafty retirees—or to fall hard for a small town girl like Savannah. Suddenly the man who knows all about making money finds himself needing lessons in love and what really matters in life…

LuAnn McLane
LuAnn McLane writes southern bent romantic comedy for NAL and is currently penning her third novel in her Cricket Creek book series. Her books have appeared on best selling lists including Barnes and Noble, Rhapsody and Doubleday Book clubs. She recently collaborated with country superstar Wynonna Judd with Restless Heart. She lives in Florence, Kentucky and when she isn't writing... she enjoys family, friends, cooking, reading, music, travel and University of Kentucky basketball. 

I knew as soon as I saw the cover and the title of the book, I knew I wanted to read Ms. McClane's book. This book is Book 4 of a series named Cricket Creek novels, each taking place in Cricket Creek, Kentucky, a small town.
 This book focuses on the town's retirement community nmed Whisper's Edge.  The community struggles, suffering from the hard financial times.  Not only that but the previous owners neglected the community. New residents feel their prayers have been answered when they find that there is a new owner.
Unfortunately, the new owner has other ideas.  He sees dollar signs and  even though the community doesn't know, he plans to sell the community for a big profit.
Cricket Creek is a small, quaint Southern town and the author wrote this charming tale about some quirky seniors.
There is also some sweet comedy in it as well.  The characters have been written to be so endearing and heart warming.  When you are almost finished with the book, you will be hoping that the story ends as a HAPPY EVER AFTER story.
Another wonderful thing the author added was some romantic comedy.   This will definitely be added to the book shelf to re-read again.

I was given a complimentary copy of WHISPER'S EDGE from the author, Luann McLane and Manic Readers for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
