Description:
Cass Lehman has a terrifying ‘gift’… She sees what others can’t…

Cass Lehman had the misfortune of being born into a family of extraordinary women with supernatural talents. Her mother sees the future, her grandmother is a healer and Cass has the less sexy talent of seeing the past… but not just any past events… Cass’s terrifying gift is triggered when she walks over a spot where someone has met their end in a sudden and brutal way. Not only does she see their death, but she feels it… she relives it.

So, for years, she’s hardly set foot outside… until now.

Spurred by a desire to have a life of her own, Cass decides to take her first tentative steps towards freedom only to find herself confronted by murder and mayhem in her sleepy hometown of Jewel Bay.

Taking a chance, she offers to help the local police track down the killer and finds herself thrust into working with the tormented and emotionally charged Detective Ed Dyson.

Together they battle to overcome his prejudice and her fear of using her talent aiming to stop a killer who’s been operating quietly and systematically in their midst for years…

Can Cass save the killer’s latest victim… and herself?

 

My View:
What an excellent debut! I must admit that I am a big fan of the paranormal/crime fiction/mystery mash up- when it is done right – and this is done very nicely thank you. There was no need to suspend belief – this just felt like it could be.

This book had an exciting story line, endearing characters (aside from the serial killer), a rapid pace and an enticing ending that you don’t need to be psychic to predict what may be in store in the follow up books in this series.

This read is pure entertainment and enjoyment; intense, fast paced, satisfying. What more could you want in a book? I can’t wait to read the next offerings from this author. **Hint Hint Pantera Press 🙂

  1. I must confess, Carol, that I’m not the fan of the paranormal in mysteries that you are. But I think you hit on what’s vital: it can work if it’s really done right. And I do like well-drawn characters. Glad you enjoyed this.
