First Visions (Second Sight #1)

4 of 5 stars false
Two years ago, 21-year-old Kate Edwards became deathly ill and slipped into a coma. While unconscious, she crept into the mind of a missing boy and awoke with the knowledge of his location. Friends and family were skeptical and wary of her new ability to see into the minds of others. Their fears prompted Kate to keep her psychic powers a secret. Feeling alienated, she dropped out of college and spent most of her days holed up at her mother’s home.
Now another child has been abducted. Police detective Jared Corbett seeks out Kate for her help in solving the case. Reluctantly, Kate agrees and they must work together to bring 8-year-old Cori Preston home to her family. Although attracted to one another, Jared has a girlfriend with ties to the abduction case and Kate is sarcastic and guarded since her coma. With visions she can’t control and an uncontrollable attraction to the detective, she wonders if she can leave the past behind and finally stop hiding from the world. Otherwise, Cori may be lost forever.


****This book was part of a blog tour, I received a copy for my honest review****
This was a great book for those who like a little bit of suspense and mystery with their romance. Also it was very informative for a first book of a series without being to heavy. I liked that. I loved Katie's character, she was a bit clueless,but she had her reasons and she knew it; her snarky dry wit was just perfect. She had been through a lot and had built up a fair few defensive walls and I couldn't blame her at all.
The romantic relationship between the Katie and Jared was very well done. I could feel the tension and I felt bad for their obvious struggle to try and stay away from each other even though they had undeniable chemistry. I am glad things were paced the way they were. I believe this could be read as a YA or NA book. The adult themes were very light and the focus was on the story and the budding relationship rather than a sexual relationship between the two.
I really liked trying to figure out the mystery of what was going on through her visions/dreams.
It was a very enjoyable short read. It sort of reminded me of the earlier Charlaine Harris mysteries,The Aurora Teagarden series, which I loved. I will definitely be looking forward to reading the next one.
