About the Book:
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 to judge the innocent from the wicked 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.


Book Musings :

I received a free copy from the author for an honest review

This book was a better read than what I was expecting. The start was a bit slow but then it went on to become a smooth read. I wouldn't exactly call it a fantasy because the only fantastical aspect was the protagonists' powers. Otherwise it was a normal who did it read.

The characters were well formed. Sloan was a contradiction of sorts. She was a strong character and I loved her struggle to get involved in the case or not. Nathan was a likeable character at the start then I disliked him for a while but then he again became a cool character at the end. He took me on quite a journey. Warren absolutely blew my mind. He is my type of hero - strong and silent.

The story progressed well and the identity of the antagonist was a total surprise. The author played it well. The story kept my attention throughout the book with the various twists and turns.

The romance part had me guessing at every turn. I was so sure who the hero was but then the story turned into a competition of sorts. The scenes were fun and funny.

In short, I can see myself reading more of this author's books.

My one line review :  A surprisingly attention grabbing book
