4 out of 5 (very good)
I received this book from Barclay Publicity in return for a fair and honest review.
This is a contemporary paranormal romantic suspense book, complete with its own ghosts. Addie is a young woman who has seen enough of life's mysteries and betrayals to make her swear off men and her gifts. In return, all she wants is a 'normal' life. Part of her way of doing this is to try and get a job doing what she loves which just so happens to be in the Art world.
Things are not what they seem in this book and you will follow Addie as she bounces along from one experience to another. I liked Addie but I also found myself to be quite exasperated with her too. The 'blind spots' that she kept going on about, plus the discussions between her heart and her head, just served to annoy me as she swung back and forth between one reason or excuse.
The characters are all well developed and thought out, along with the plot. This book took me a while to get in as there is a lot going on with the current day storyline but then there is also a past life and reincarnation to contend with too.
On the whole, this was an intriguing read that kept my interest until the last page. Very enjoyable and definitely recommended but you will need to keep your brain in gear.
