Does anyone know of any good books where the main characters are telepaths (and communicate with each other telepathically)?  

Also, there is a book I remember from way back (70's maybe?) where the main character was a girl who grew up having a pyschic friend who was a little boy she had never met.  They later meet as adults.  Anyone know what that might be?

Thanks

Diane

There's Christine Feehan's "sisters" books & Kay Hooper has a series about FBI agents with psychic capabilities.

Here's one of Hooper's latest: http://www.amazon.com/Hunting-Fear-Kay-Hooper/dp/0553585983/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4/105-7542520-5444418?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1186776102&sr=8-4 , but you should probably read from the beginning of the series.

There's also Sharon Sala's "When you call my name" which is a reprint recently released in a two books for one Trade PB.

Feehan's Ghost Walker series is also telepathically inclined. I liked the first one but never got around to the others.

Nalini Singh's Psy are telepathic.  The books are Slave to Sensation and Visions of Heat with more books in the series yet to be published.

I also recommend Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker books.  I've read and enjoyed all of them and the 5th book in the series is scheduled for next February.

Of Feehan's Ghostwalkers, the two most recent - Conspiracy Game and Deadly Game were better than the rest, IMO.  The characters just seemed a little more fleshed out to me.

Both are on my shelf ;-)

I just read a new book called "Beg for Mercy".  By Toni Andrews.  Its more of an urban fantasy than paranoramal romance, but  the main character has some latent telepathic tendencies,  you get the impression that these will grow and develop over the course of the series.

It was a pretty good read.

Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris is a telepath.  But there is only 2 books so far where she meets another telepath and communicates that way.

Some of L.A. Banks characters in her Vampire Huntress series are telepathic as well as some of the characters in Susan Sizemore's "Primes Series - I Burn for you, I thirst for you, I Hunger for you".

The older book might be Mystery Lover by Annette Broadrick.  There was something about a traumatic car wreck when the h was a child and she connected telepathically with a teenage boy who became her special friend and advisor through this mental connection.  When she was older she went to work for him though she didn't know who he was, but I think he knew who she was. 

It was a series romance but I don't remember which line of books.

I highly recommend Kay Hooper's series involving Bishop and his special FBI unit.  I'm so thrilled that a new book is finally coming out in December.  Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker series is good although I didn't love the last 2 books.

I love Nalini Singh's Psy series, just finished Caressed by Ice, excellent story, and this series is very interesting with the Psy net she's created.  Even though the Changelings are shifters, don't think of this series as being mainly a shifter-type story like others in that genre - it's more about the characters and emotions, and family, pitting extremes, not focused on them in shifter form, more those traits in them as humans.  Highly recommended.

You might check out Anne McCaffreyShe wrote the Talents series about psychics (to Ride Pegasus was the first), and another series about psychics in space (beginning with The Rowan).

Try reading "Speak of the Dead" by Hollie Van Horne :

Book Description
Speak of the Dead ~ She has the sixth sense! He's a New York City homicide detective! This case is about to be the death of them! Felicia McClellan can speak to the dead. As an "open channel," she can help grieving survivors by speaking to their departed loved ones, exorcise haunted houses, assist anguished spirits by doing unfinished business for them on the earth plan, and thrill the millions who read her non-fiction books. Things are going well for Felicia until her agent and best friend, Natalie, is found dead, and according to Natalie's spirit, it was no accident - it was murder! Now it's up to Felicia to convince NYPD homicide detective, Mike Harris, not to close the case. And that won't be easy since there's no physical evidence to support Felicia's homicide theory, and Natalie has stopped giving her clues from beyond the grave. Cynical Lt. Harris doesn't believe in Felicia's psychic abilities, doesn't believe the agent was murdered, but does believe Felicia is the only person who stood to gain anything from her friend's demise. If that weren't enough to torment the spiritualist, a vengeful psychotic killer from Mike's past is speaking to her from the "other side," and his message is coming through loud and clear - kill Mike Harris!
