I was offered this book by the author for free, but before accepting I checked it out on Amazon. As soon as
I read the blurb, I knew I had to read this. While I am a die hard romantic, I will read other genres if they catch my attention, which this book did.
Sloan Jordan is a young woman who has a unique ability. She can see peoples souls, the best and worst. She has kept her gift hidden, as it has caused her problems in the past, but when a new detective, Nathan McNamara, moves to town, she eventually tells him. Once he knows what she can do, he enlists her help with a case, which she reluctantly gives. Later he asks her to help with a cold case that he's been working on for most of his career. They work together and in the process meet Warren Parrish. Warren is quite the mystery man and Sloan finds herself in the middle of the two men. As I was reading this, I didn't know which man I hoped to win as both were characters I liked.
Without giving everything away, I will say that I truly was hooked as soon as I started reading. There was humor, mystery, and most of all, it was believable. To me at least. I'm so glad that I picked up this book and have already purchased the next two. Put Elicia Hyder on your Authors To Look Out For list. She is awesome!
I give this book 5 little larks and when I had to put it down it was with great reluctance. I did not want to and was counting the minutes until I could get back to it.
Blessed–or cursed–with a connection to the souls of others, Sloan Jordan can see the best in people… and the worst. For twenty-seven years, she's kept her ability a secret, but eleven young women have been murdered in the mountains of North Carolina, and Sloan may be the only hope of finding their killer.
She has just agreed to help Detective Nathan McNamara with the case, when a stranger—who is as alluring as he is terrifying—shows up at her doorstep with a dark past and another puzzling mystery: she can't see his soul at all.
Now Sloan is on the hunt for a deadly psychopath with two irresistible men. One of them would die for her, and the other would kill to keep her safe.
