Description

Through the eyes of a killer... Rachel de Luca has found incredible success writing self-help books. But her own blindness and the fact that her troubled brother has gone missing have convinced her that positive thinking is nothing but bull. Her cynicism wavers when a cornea transplant restores her sight. The new eyes seem to give her new life, until they prove too good to be true and she starts seeing terrifying visions of brutal murders--crimes she soon learns are all too real. Detective Mason Brown's own brother recently died, leaving behind a horrific secret. In atonement, Mason donated his brother's organs, though he's kept the fact quiet. Now he wants to help Rachel find her brother, but when he discovers the shocking connection between her visions and his own brother, he suddenly has to do everything in his power to save her from a predator who is somehow still hunting from beyond the grave.

4 1/2 STARS The first book in the romantic suspense Brown and de Luca series is an intriguing and mesmerizing read. Rachel de Luca is a successful self help author despite being blind and she can�??�?�¢??t believe her good fortune when she�??�?�¢??s granted new life with a cornea transplant, but her new eyes prove to be too good to be true when she starts having terrifying visions of brutal murders. Detective Mason Brown is trying to atone for his recently deceased brothers horrific secret in helping Rachel find her missing brother but then he learns of the shocking connection to his brother and he suddenly has to do everything in his power to her from a predator who is still hunting from the grave. This steady pace plot keeps the reader in spine tingling suspense throughout the story with each new chilling development in the case of several missing young men. The tension builds throughout as the danger escalates and there is lots of surprising twists that keep the reader on their toes. The characters are strong, compelling and easily related to, grabbing the reader�??�?�¢??s attention from the very beginning. The romance slowly builds throughout the story with a little bit of sex that sizzles with passion, but the romance between Mason and Rachel is just beginning and has a long way to go. The author brings the characters to life with vibrant intensity making it easy for the reader to get caught up in their story. But the main focus that really draws the reader in is the fascinating but horrifying concept that could be supernatural in origin and really gets the reader wondering what if. Overall I really enjoyed this riveting story and couldn�??�?�¢??t put it down once I started it. There were a couple of small instances that seemed out of sync, but they were easily ignored and of course I really have to read the next book to find out what happens next and what going on with Rachel and Mason.show more
