I love witchy-type of book, and I really like Aunt Cerie. It was too funny when she was reading Graham’s sexual thoughts about Erin, her niece. AND I love mystery/suspense type books. Auntie reads minds, Dad has the power of suggestion and Erin has visions. What more could you ask for?
That being said, I know that some authors try to make a book true to life; making the heroine plump, not so attractive, hair the color of a carrot, you know, the usual gross stuff that doesn’t make for a good heroine; slobber coming out her mouth while she’s sleeping, snoring like a freight train. BUT in this one it was really too much. On page 143 Erin had a bloody nose the Graham mentioned she had something hanging from her nose. Erin went to the bathroom and discovered a booger hanging from her blood-smeared nose. REALLY? All the way through the rest of the book I couldn’t help but think of that. That was simply disgusting. It would have been bad enough if she’d been alone but the fact that her love interest brought it to her attention was beyond gross. If this is the kind of thing this author comes up with I can’t see myself reading anything else by her. I hate for one nasty thing early on to stick with me through the rest of the book. It definitely takes away from my enjoyment.
Now that that’s out of the way. I did love this book. Well, except for whoever was messing with their minds, AND Graham’s father. He lived so far in the past it was ridiculous, but it became understandable later on in the story. I was surprised at the story behind Graham and Patricia, but not Graham’s thoughts on not being good enough for Erin, geez how old is that storyline. I was glad there wasn’t too much time spent with those thoughts.
This was such an exciting story I couldn’t wait to find out who the bad guy was? Who killed the three people in the book? (You’ll have to read it to find out who.) It certainly was a shock.
The last 20% were so exciting I just couldn’t believe it. The whole book was exciting but the finale was wonderful. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.
There was sexual tension and sex in this book and the F-bomb was dropped 20 times.
As to the narrator: He was just excellent. When someone was arguing, WOW, Steven Barnett was really angry and shouted and was full of emotion. He was awesome. And the women sounded just like women.

Didn't think I would like the story so much but I did. Exciting plot twist with good narration. Looking forward to listening/reading more of this author's work!
