'First Visions' by Heather Topham Wood Blog Tour: Guest Review and Giveaway

First Visions

Second Sight Series Book #1 

By Heather Topham Wood
Publication Date: April 27, 2012

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.

First thank you to the ladies of Girls *Heart* Books for allowing me to guest review! I enjoy every second of it.

After reading paranormal for so long it’s almost weird reading something more every day.  I was slightly expecting to be bored or uninterested.  However, I can say this is definitely an attention grabber. 

I love Kate.  She’s the kind of person that can be admired and respected.  She was dealt a tough hand and instead of being the whiny-my-life-is-so-hard heroine she sucked it up and punched through it.  It was awesome, and refreshing. 

Jared was typical drop dead gorgeous, smart, funny hero, but I wasn’t really interested in him so much as I was interested in the character growth he gave to Kate. He doesn’t grow much himself, but he does make important choices that will perhaps effect the series and his growth as the story progresses. 

The story is very fast paced.  Once started there’s no putting it down until it’s done.  It’s really easy to read and really easy to follow which makes it extremely pleasant and enjoyable.  It’s a little on the short side, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. 

Overall I’m very pleased this was the book that I read to take a break from the paranormal.  It definitely was worth it.  I would recommend this for all romance, crime fiction, action readers.
