Book Description: A twisted game of Hide’n Go Seek forces an unlikely alliance between a no-nonsense FBI agent and a search-and-rescue worker.
Celebrated search-and-rescue worker Kali Jordon has hidden her psychic abilities by crediting her canine partner Shiloh with the recoveries. But Kali knows the grim truth—The Sight that she inherited from her grandmother allows her to trace violent energy unerringly to victims of violence. No one knows her secret until a twisted killer challenges her to a deadly game of Hide’n Go Seek that threatens those closest to her.
Now she must rely on FBI Special Agent Grant Summers, a man who has sworn to protect her, even as he suspects there’s more to Kali and Shiloh than meets the eye. As the killer draws a tighter and tighter circle around Kali, she and Grant find there’s no place to hide.
Are her visions the key to finding the latest victim alive or will this twisted game of Hide’n Go Seek cost her…everything?
Captivation: I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I read almost without stop, pausing only to sleep. It didn’t catch me as much as the first book did, but it was pretty close.
Sizzle: There was one scene that had a little sizzle to it. This book was almost more chic lit than romance. Only the one scene pushes it into the romance category.
Romance: This one also still felt lacking in the relationship category of the romance. The main characters indicate conflict between them and internally, but the conflict doesn’t really get truly resolved… it’s a couple sentence acknowledgement and then all done and you have a happy couple. On one hand, it’s a nice happy ending story, but on the other, I sit there thinking about how, even for a fantasy, it’s a little too unreal.
Enjoyment: I like this book also. Despite the semi-awkward feeling, the story is still a good suspenseful story with a sweet romance in it.
Literacy: I did catch several errors in this book, but not enough to start highlighting them or distract me from the enjoyment of the story. I did have a few moments where I paused and had to think about grammar or mixed up words, but not many, and it didn’t take me long to get the drift.
Overall, this book will also remain on my read again bookshelf.
