Two years ago, 21-year-old Kate Edwards became deathly ill and slipped into a coma. While unconscious, she crept into the mind of a missing boy and awoke with the knowledge of his location. Friends and family were skeptical and wary of her new ability to see into the minds of others. Their fears prompted Kate to keep her psychic powers a secret. Feeling alienated, she dropped out of college and spent most of her days holed up at her mother’s home.
Now another child has been abducted. Police detective Jared Corbett seeks out Kate for her help in solving the case. Reluctantly, Kate agrees and they must work together to bring 8-year-old Cori Preston home to her family. Although attracted to one another, Jared has a girlfriend with ties to the abduction case and Kate is sarcastic and guarded since her coma. With visions she can’t control and an uncontrollable attraction to the detective, she wonders if she can leave the past behind and finally stop hiding from the world. Otherwise, Cori may be lost forever.
I think books about psychics are usually kind of fun, especially since I am one. I know, you’re saying, “what, we didn’t know that!” No really, I predict you’ll want to read this book by the end of my review. See, I’m good (and humble). One of the really great perks of this series is that the next three books are already out and the fourth is coming soon, so you can read this and then gorge yourself on more snarkalicious, grouchy Kate, who’s admittedly a better psychic than me.
