The Romance and Christian Suspense of Vicky Whedbee
January 26, 2023
Review: Vicky successfully weaves heartfelt, character-driven subplots within her main story, adding depth and richness.
Vicky Whedbee was born and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida, where she resided until her 40’s when she relocated to San Mateo, Florida, where she currently resides with her husband. An avid reader, she wrote her first novel over a period of years as a labor of love and fulfillment of a life long dream that began with the encouragement of her Engish teacher in high school.
With a diagnosis of cancer for her dad, she decided to become an independent author and published her novel on her own in order to present a finished product to her father before his demise. She was in the process of reading said novel, “Things He Hadn’t Told Her”, to him at the time of his passing.
She wrote her second novel “Sarah’s Song”, which was a collaboration with her father set in the time of his childhood in the rural Appalachian mountains, with notes taken prior to his demise. Both books have been met with stellar 5-STAR reviews on Amazon & Goodreads, as well as awarded the 5-star review seal from Reader’s Favorite.
After numerous requests, she wrote a sequel to Sarah’s Song, titled Sarah’s Home, which could also be read as a stand-alone. It, too, is being received with love and 5-STAR reviews.
She is currently working on her next novel.

Chad Edwards & Cole Rivers have been best friends since grade school. “Blood brothers forever” they declared after Chad saved Cole’s life.
Years later in college at the University of Tennessee, Chad is a student of Sports Medicine, and Cole is the Vol’s star quarterback. That’s where they meet Maggie Thompson. Ask either one of them and they would tell you, “Maggie is perfect”. So, it’s no surprise they both fall in love with her.
As fate would have it, Maggie falls in love too, but only one of them is the recipient of her affections. It’s what happens next that will surprise you.
They made a pact as boys. Can they keep that pact as men?
It’s the 1940’s in rural East Tennessee, Appalachian country. For most everyone there is only work, and possibly church, if there’s one nearby
People rise before the sun is up, work hard, go to bed early, and rest in church on Sunday. Little chance for much else to happen. Right?
So, why would keeping one little secret for over sixteen years be so important? What could possibly have happened that could change the lives of so many people, if the secret were to be revealed there are only three people alive that know the answer to that question.
The story of those you came to know and love in Sarah’s Song continues in rural Appalachia, Hurricane Hollow, Tennessee, in 1956!
After learning of the horrific abuse her adopted son endured during his childhood with nowhere to escape to, and then losing her best friend to more senseless violence, Millicent Thornton embarks on a journey to provide a safe haven for anyone that needs it.
She builds Sarah’s Home in honor of her late friend, bringing her dream to fruition, however, it isn’t long before she realizes she has seriously underestimated the need of such a facility.
Nor could she ever have imagined that her life and the lives of those closest to her would be turned upside down with the arrival of the first few occupants, and changed forevermore when the identity of another patient is learned!
