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.
This was a delightful clean romance with a side of mystery with psychic abilities. It’s a short, fun read and doesn’t feel rushed or missing anything.
Kate has a great snarky attitude. Several of her comments and antics had me giggling. Jared is hot niceness. He is both patient and flaring with impatience: a study in hot contrasts. He put up with a lot more of Kate’s snark than I expected, and could definitely give as good as he took.
This sweet story ended on a happy note, with a definite expectation of more. The story wrapped up, but it was easy to tell this was part of a series. One that I can’t wait to read more of.
