Cleo Tyler is a psychic, but wishes she wasn't. Sometimes she just fakes it, because the real experience is too painful. Daniel Sinclair, small-town cop with a slightly mentally handicapped brother, just doesn't trust Cleo or her brother.
This is a good entertaining book. Not too light, not too dark. There's definitely suspense, danger, and one horror striking portion.
Romance is also raising it's head, and neither Cleo nor Sinclair want to acknowledge it's happeing.
Quick easy read with likable characters and interesting storyline.
Cleo Tyler is a fraud. Hired by the Chief of Police in a small Missouri town to use her psychic abilities to find a missing key, Cleo hopes to give them some vague directions, grab her paycheck and head out of town. She's not a psychic and can't explain how her dreams helped solve the case of a missing child in California.
Officer Daniel Sinclair believes Cleo is a scam artist. He wants to keep an eye on her so she doesn't embarrass the Chief who believes in her abilities. That includes tracking her down when she tries to flea town with some money.
This contemporary romance has some very unique characters. Cleo is a tormented heroine who suffers from anxiety due to the death of her fiance and unborn child. She dreams of smashed pumpkins, hates the color orange, and also has an eating disorder. Daniel always wanted to travel, but he had to come back home to take care of his developmentally impaired brother and feels stuck in the small town. He is grateful that the Chief gave him a job, and wants to make sure Cleo doesn't take advantage of her kindness.
The story is fast moving and interesting. I liked that Theresa Weir's books never falls into the cookie-cutter mold of romance stories. My rating: 4 Stars.
Couldn't get thru the slow plodding presentation. So sorry.
