Since being gifted–or cursed–with her ability to touch a lifeless body and relive the victim’s final moments, Olivia Wainwright has died a hundred deaths. She hears the screams, tastes the fear; feels the excruciating pain–and every glimpse into this darkness draws her deeper into danger.
Now, though, she’s met a man who offers a glimmer of light. Savannah Detective Gabe Cooper might look like a sexy good-old-boy, but his laid-back attitude hides a sharp mind and a protective heart. He doesn’t believe in psychics–until he meets Olivia and sees firsthand how her dark gift ravages her spirit.
As their bond deepens, Olivia will have to choose between her cold gift and the warmth Gabe provides. But her past is catching up with her, and Gabe can’t refuse when she needs his help solving a crime that’s haunted her for over a decade…her own murder.
I have been waiting; very impatiently I might add, for this book. Cold Sight, the first book in the series, was one of my favorite books I read last year. I just knew that this one was going to be just as good if not better. I was not disappointed.
When you think of abilities to have I would say that this is not one I would want to be cursed with. To see the final moments of someone’s life and not just that but basically experience their death. It is just unimaginable. Olivia uses this as a way to help others and finally finds a way for it to help her.
Gabe is a good ole southern boy, who happens to be in the right place at the right time. Olivia and Gabe have some chemistry from the get-go. That’s not all; Gabe’s partner is described as looking like Shemar Moore – I’m in LOVE! The supporting cast is all there and we learn a little more about them.
This was one I could not put down once I started it partly because it was so good, partly because it is a tough and dark subject. If you are anything like me though and watch all the criminal investigative shows this book will be right up your alley.
I have added this to my top five favs for 2011 – Leslie has done it again!
