Not only is Nick’s heart carved in stone, but so is his opinion of so called psychics which puts his best friend’s little cousin squarely off limits not matter how much the sassy Cajun, spitfire appeals to him. A serial killer is using psychic Evangeline Broussard’s small bayou town as his own personal hunting ground and she is forced to work with Special Agent pain-in-the-behind, Nick Garrison whose cynicism toward her psychic ability is matched only by his hotter-than-a-Louisiana-summer sex appeal. A leak in the police department puts her in the crosshairs of the killer and she’s the only one who can save them all.
This romance has strong, bold characters that stand out and their chemistry sizzles and pots whether their having a heated clash of wills, trying to resist their magnetic attraction or giving into the passion that burns between them. This couple are perfect match for each other but quite stubborn which keeps the relationship on a rocky slope and full of emotional turmoil that not only entertains readers but lets them get a ‘real’ feel for their personalities.
Thrilling suspense and intrigue keep readers on the edge throughout this fast paced plot as Nick and Evie try to figure out who the killer is and surprising twists keeps the characters on their toes. The author has created a small town story as the perfect setting and a group of characters that are interwoven with realistic interactions that allows readers to really get to know them. In fact, while the story appears to be standalone, readers would not be averse to reading more stories from this small town…like say Remy for instance. But regardless of whether the author brings readers more stories related to this one or not, she is definitely one to be put on the TBR list.
