Penny travels to San Francisco to begin her search, but the trail seems cold as the orphanage is gone, a victim of the World Series earthquake. She goes door to door in the neighborhood until she meets an elderly woman who provides the clue that leads to Matt. As they become reacquainted and both their business boom, they begin to fall in love. However, he must overcome his tendency to act like her big brother for she wants him as her mate for life.

Jane Edwards paints a beautiful contemporary romance that hooks the audience because the lead couple is a delightful pair who deserves happiness. The story line allows the romance to slowly develop in the background while Penny and Matt work on building up their businesses. Penny's work as a flying companion to little children is an intriguing approach to a modern day problem of extended families separated by geography. Though a smuggling subplot adds unnecessary suspense, fans of a realistic romance in a global economy will appreciate A WHISPER OF SUSPICION.
