Four centuries ago, in a small Scottish village, three baby girls escaped the wrath of a witch hunter. Today, one young woman will learn about her secret history, her heart’s destiny, and the sisters she never knew she had…
With her blue-black hair and dark eyes, Raye Larsen has never fit in with the Scandinavian community of New Bergin, Wisconsin. Being adopted is part of the reason she feels like an outsider, but what really sets Raye apart is her ability to see dead people. Everywhere.
She’s learned to keep her visions to herself . . . until she stumbles onto the ghost of a murder victim who needs Raye’s help. Enter Bobby Doucet, a distractingly handsome homicide detective who has been tracking a killer all the way from New Orleans. Could this be the break in his case he’s been looking for all along?
Meanwhile, the deeper Raye gets involved with the case—and with Bobby—the closer she comes to unlocking the mystery of her own origins. What she discovers about herself could destroy everything she knows . . . and everyone she loves. Is finding the truth worth the risk?
Filled with dark magic, dazzling romance, and dire suspense, this is the first book in a thrilling new series by New York Times bestselling author Lori Handeland.
~ My Review ~
You looking for a witchy read? Well, the synopsis says it’s about witches, but the truth is it’s only in the end, but I liked it this way. I guess it will be more about witches in the next two books since two sisters are still left.
I personally read and liked this because our main character, Raye (short for Raymond – poor girl) could see ghosts. I’m a sucker for ghost stories.
Then stir in a little murder and a hot detective and I guarantee you I will really, really like this.
Raye, our ghost whisperer, is an kindergarten teacher, who is targeted by some psycho that wants to kill her. I immediately liked her. She was just do down to earth even for her nifty little talent.
Bobby is our detective and Raye’s love interest. Do you see a hot detective when I say Bobby? I don’t, but whatever. He was nonetheless, the name just ruined it a bit, but I guess that’s just me being weird – again.
What I liked most about this story was the fact that no insta-love was involved. Finally a book were a relationship progresses slowly without love declarations after 3 pages.
Then I thought it was cute that Raye’s parents were watching her from the beyond all those years without Raye’s knowledge.
