Growing up as an honorary Taggart, Eric Patterson found the family he’d always wanted. Almost. He couldn’t ever manage to see the clan’s youngest and only daughter, stubborn spitfire Shelby, quite like a little sister. Suddenly, his long-suppressed feelings are determined to come to light.
Too bad Shelby’s cursed. Her double whammy psychic powers to read emotions and locate anyone anywhere have always made relationships impossible—and now they’ve begun to endanger her life. If she uses her echolocation skills again, it just might kill her.
But when a malevolent supernatural force invades the valley, threatening the Taggarts and their neighbors, the Brands, Eric and Shelby must contend with both their blossoming feelings and the increasing danger. Does Shelby dare risk using her powers one more time, sacrificing her own life to save Eric?
Having read book 1 in this series, I couldn’t wait to get started on book 2. I do want to add though – even though I have read book 1, I don’t think that it would be required to read this book.
I love the paranormal aspect of this story though. The story itself just drew me in and I couldn’t get enough of it. Eric and Shelby were both great characters, and you could tell they both had chemistry that they were both trying to ignore.
One thing that I really loved about the book is where Shelby is a strong independent woman, Eric isn’t trying to stop her from being that way. He just wants her to be safe. And when push comes to shove he does try his best to protect her.
Being able to see as the family deals with everything that is going on was fun to watch. Seeing as they all stopped what they were doing to help and protect each other was so great to read about. Most times, family doesn’t help when things go wrong. But in this family? They are all there to support in anyway they can.
Overall – another great read from David and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
