This is a really good book and if you like her others, I definitely recommend it. I go to Karen Robards' books when I am in the mood for a book where the romance story seems to be primary and the crime/murder secondary. I also like Lisa Jackson's books but in my opinion, hers tend to have the crime/murder being primary and the romance secondary. I don't believe one is better than the other, just different.
I love Karen Robards, so I went along with the paranormal aspects of this book. Even though thats not really my thing, I think she pulled it off.
Sparks fly between the police chief and a reporter when they are thrown together when a brutal killer comes out of hiding after 15 years.
When Nicky Sullivan starts looking for a story for her failing investigative news program, she thinks about her childhood home on Pawleys Island, South Carolina, remembering the unsolved deaths of three teenagers that occurred there 15 years ago, and turns to the local psychic, her mother Leonora James, for help. The only problem is that her mother, who agreed to a live broadcast, is having problems with her ability to communicate with the dead, and Nicky is worried that the show will be a bust rather than a ratings booster. But Leonora comes through with a riveting reading that instigates a new murder that mimics the previous murders and places Nicky in danger. Instead of hiding, Nicky comes back to the island to cover the investigation and butts heads with the chief of police, Joe Franconi. Joe is a former vice cop from New Jersey who was forced to resign, ending up in the sleepy southern town with an inexperienced department now responsible for searching for what appears to be a serial killer. As the two lead their separate investigations, Joe and Nicky become increasingly attracted to one another. This is another winner from the popular and prolific Robards, who delivers a great romantic thriller filled with interesting characters in a classic edge-of-the-seat read.
