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.

I love creative authors. I truly do.

There are a lot of interesting things that have happened in paranormal novels that I just love what I love most is how original "powers" get. I was attracted to this idea of Kate and the coma instantly. Things for this girl do not get any easier, either.

The world has knocked this girl down, yet she keeps getting back up, shrugging it all off and just moving forward. She has an awesome personality and somehow takes everything that comes to her with a good stride.

And no good story could be made without an amazing hot guy in the picture, enter Jared. I liked him, the detective in charge of the case. The romance was just hilarious and they were made for each other, sadly Jared has another one.

Besides the romance, what attracted me was the mystery. I love a good mystery; the tangle web that the author forms and how it comes together in the end is just wonderful. Wood is just wonderful.

I loved this novel. The main plot line had actual substance to it and everything started to fall together in ways I couldn't imagine.
