Book 2 takes Summer and Jerry away from Ames on holiday. Little do they know what awaits them there!

Summer and Jerry’s romantic weekend takes a dark turn when they discover the body of a young woman in the surf.

When the local police deny the crime and the newspaper prints nothing, Jerry and Summer realize they are on their own. But they have no idea how deep they will have to dig to find out the truth. The murder is only a thread in a web of lies that extends to the furthest reaches of political office.

Are Summer’s visions to be the only clues? Jerry doesn’t think so, his focus on good old-fashioned detective work, but when he doubts her psychic abilities the trust between them begins to crumble.

As the days pass, Jerry and Summer come to understand that not only their relationship, but their very lives are in jeopardy.

***Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp’s  Review***
This is the first book I have read by new to me author Nikki Broadwell and although it is book 2 in the series the author states (and I would generally agree) that the book works as a stand alone.

This is a good little paranormal mystery although I didn’t always connect with the characters. I wonder if that perception may have been a little different had I stared the series with the first book.

That being said the story was solid and I never actually felt (like I do with some books) that I was “Missing” key information. There are some good twists and although I wasn’t able to solve the mystery before the characters when the resolution was presented it made perfect sense.

Overall a fairly good mystery – 3/12 stars rounded up to 4.
