BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Through His Heart (Minds Eye #3) by Deborah Camp


Title: Through His Heart
Series: Minds Eye #3
Author: Deborah Camp
Genre: Suspense Romance
Release Date: June 30, 2015


“Sending you an SOS.”

When psychic Trudy Tucker hears this plaintive cry in her mind and then connects psychically with a little girl’s kidnapper, she is drawn to a small town in Missouri where everyone is suspect – including herself and her lover, celebrated psychic detective Levi Wolfe. As she and Levi work together to sort through whom and what to trust, an innocent life hangs in the balance.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)


I received this book from Enticing Journey Book Promotions in return for a fair and honest review.

I love the Mind's Eye series and was thoroughly looking forward to this book and I was not disappointed. I love the relationship between Levi and Trudy and how it is 'symbiotic' as stated in this book. Trudy and Levi are needed by each other to bring out the best in each other. Now I'm not saying that their relationship is all sweetness and light, because it certainly is not. Levi can be a real arrogant pain in the ass whilst Trudy's self-doubt can be crippling.

One of the obstacles that Levi still needs to face is his past, and his father in particular. The last book ended with a phone call from his step-mother and this book starts not long after that. When Trudy decides to try and find the missing girl and this means spending time near his father and step-mother, then Levi decides he will support her even though it will be incredibly difficult for him.

The suspense and emotions in this book make it the best one so far, in my opinion. Trudy and Levi, and their relationship, develop and grow. Some other characters in the book are simply hateful and you can totally empathise with Levi and will be cheering Trudy on as she refuses to be kowtowed or browbeaten.

Exceedingly well-written with no plot holes. The suspense will grab you and the emotions will take you for a ride. The sexy scenes are HOT but for me, it was the connection that carries on growing between Levi and Trudy that made this book so good.

This is a brilliant series which is going from strength to strength. Highly recommended.

A shudder raced through her and her stomach knotted. Nausea rose up to her throat as darkness descended in her mind.
“I’m sending you an SOS. Sending you an SOS. An SOS.” Can you find me? Can you hear me?
“I hear you,” Trudy whispered, answering the small, trembling voice.
“Did you say something, Rachel? Are you singing something?” This was a different voice in her head. A deep bass, but gentle. Coaxing, cajoling, cunning.
The darkness parted like a curtain in Trudy’s mind and Rachel came into view. She sat in a child’s white rocking chair, her red tennis shoes dangling inches from the floor. A wedge of purple discolored her right cheek. Her lips twitched and her chin quivered.
“Be a good girl and do what you’re told and that won’t happen to you again. No one wants to hurt you. You gotta obey, though. Can’t say ‘no’ to your elders. Your mama should have taught you that.”
“It hurts.”
“Want me to kiss it and make it well?”
Rachel rounded her shoulders, making herself smaller. “Nuh-uh.”
“Okay then. I could make it stop hurting though . . . I’ll read you a Bible story. How about that? Remember what we talked about? God is way up here . . . then there’s his disciples right here . . . and then your elders . . . and you’re way down below that.”
Glimpses of hands . . . moving up and down, illustrating the levels. Dirty nails, dry skinned knuckles.
“Where’s Mommy?”
“Are you hearing me? This is important.”
“I want to talk to Mommy.”
“She doesn’t want to talk to you! God gave you to us. Your mommy is busy serving the Lord and now you’re here serving us because it’s been ordained. Quit touching your face! That won’t help it heal. Come sit in my lap while I read. Did you hear me ask nice? You won’t like it if I have to ask twice. That’s my good girl. You act like this all the time and you won’t get any more boo-boos.”
Was he kissing her? Was he licking her?

  1. I'm over the moon! Thank you so very much for your review. It was a relief to discover that you enjoyed the new book. It was the most difficult of the three to write, so that's extremely satisfying for me since I value your opinion so much. I hope others give the Mind's Eye series a try, based on your recommendation. All the best to you!
