This is a well written, multi-faceted story that brings us action, suspense, mystery, romance, and family drama, all with a paranormal undercurrent. The author certainly has a gift for storytelling. I felt like I was there in the midst of the action, breathing their air and feeling their emotions.
And I will come again, my Luve, so I can watch you die.
The plot moves at a steady pace, building momentum as we near the climax. Quinn tackles the topic of stalkers, showing us how absolute the effects can be on the victim’s life. Sadly, most stalker victims do not have the resources afforded to our heroine.
I heaved another sigh. Seems as if I lived my life as one great big, weary exhale.
The characters are well developed and unique. While I really liked Lexi, she was also my stumbling point. She is simply too perfect. At just 20-years-old, she is a fabulous cook, a superior fighter, can out shoot most anyone, performs magic tricks with ease, is a beautiful and petite size 2, can put puzzle pieces together to solve most any crime, and all this without using her additional, paranormal skills. She felt, at times, more superhero than human. Also, I found certain issues with her marriage too convenient and not quite convincing. I don’t want to give details here, so I’ll just say that the true romance would have worked better on its own.
Mrs. Miller smiled. “Oh, honey, you’ve never led a typical life, you don’t know how to lead a typical life. Your life was cut out of a more colorful fabric.”
Aside from my grumbling, this story absolutely held my interest. I’m looking forward to reading the next in this series.
Thanks for reading. 🙂
