Guest Reviewer Frannie’s Thoughts:

The storyline is gripping and alluring.  It is about Sydney Fallon and Tucker Chase, two people who find themselves thrown together in an unusual circumstance.  Tucker is a policeman who leaves Chicago after two batched murder investigations.  He is distraught and moves to Madisonville, a small town in the Midwest where he hopes to run away from his problems.  He immediately meets Sydney who is the landlord of the boathouse he is renting.  She is the town psychic and Tucker does not believe in psychics.  To hide her “gift” and not scare Tucker away, Sydney tries concealing her talents.    

Tucker is in great pain and drinks a lot to numb the memories of a little girl who was murdered and the death of his brother who was his closest friend.  He is belligerent, crude but somehow very sexy to Sydney.  She finds herself falling in love with him.  She sees things in her dreams or often has visions when she touches someone.  Upon meeting Tucker, she remembers a premonition she had recently that indicated that he was her soul mate.  Determined to find out what is bothering Tucker, she tries to find the source of his problems and help his good nature emerge from the rough and spiteful person he portrays.  Tucker sees her in action and realizes that she is not a nut, but a kind and compassionate person.  He also begins to acknowledge her subternatural abilities.  

Even though he does not want to believe in her “gift” and she does not want to act on her vision, they are drawn to each other with a brilliant passion.  They cannot help themselves and begin a tumultuous love affair.  The sex scenes are beautifully written, both steamy and sensual.  This coupled with the intrigue of the murders and the contention between Tucker and many of Sydney’s friends, their passionate sex explodes into exciting and thrilling love scenes.  

The characters are well developed and even the secondary characters, such as her Grandmother “Gran”, Tucker’s brother Garrett and her best friend Ian, as well as many of the other inhabitants of the town are colorfully described and relatable.  

My only real criticism is that the story is too long.  The first half of the books a little too drawn out as the author lays down the characters’ descriptions. I felt that the murders were predictable, and I would have liked a little bit more of a twist at the end.   

Overall, the story was robust with humor and love coupled with life’s hardships and mystery.  It addressed the concepts of co-parenting, blended families and not always taking things on face value.  I would recommend reading “Blind Spot.”
