Though this was Book 4 in a series as a stand alone it was fine.
Elizabeth is a wife and mother. She adores her daughter Chloe but the marriage is strained and she does realize that everything is not quite right and that her husband is most probably philandering.
Elizabeth is however not very ordinary. She also knows that she seems to have psychic powers of some kind and when her husband dies in an accident in the company of the woman who was his mistress and especially when the cops are suspicious of Elizabeth as being part of a conspiracy to kill him she knows her psychic powers have gone into overdrive. When Elizabeth hates a person and wishes him ill, the person dies and Elizabeth is now beginning to think that this is a curse as this is the fourth person to have died this way.
Her family background is blurred and this is where Ravinia her cousin comes in. Sent by her aunt to find Elizabeth as she fears for her life Ravinia finds a private investigator willing to help her and also willing to accept that this psychic phenomena runs in the life of this family and is something that should not be brushed aside. During the investigation to find Elizabeth Ravinia also helps Joel in his other investigations and finding Elizabeth and discovering she is in danger but not from what they thought was the obvious was the surprise of this story.
A bit slow in parts it could have been a bit more fast paced especially since the storyline was a good one.

I don't think I've read a a book by these authors before. It does sound good.ReplyDelete
I know that my dad has read a couple of books by this author, although he has never passed comment about them, so I shall have to ask him what he thought.
Your own comments and rating seem to have been reflected in many similar comments and star ratings by many fellow bloggers, so this is one book which isn't going to make it to my list just yet.
Thanks for the honest appraisal and objective comments, I appreciate that.
Great review, sounds like a mystery with a twist.ReplyDelete
I hadn't realised this was part of a series when I read it. I didn't mind it but would have preferred to read its predecessors first!ReplyDelete
