From Goodreads.com:
Ashlyn Greenfield has always known when bad things are going to happen. Each time that familiar tingling at the back of her neck begins, she knows what's to come a trance. She's pulled in, blindsided, an unwilling witness to a horrible upcoming event. But she's never been able to stop it not even when the vision was of her mother's fatal car accident. When soulful Jake enters Ashlyn's life, she begins having trances about another car accident. And as her trances escalate, one thing becomes clear; it's up to her to save Jake from near-certain death.
First off, the cover of this book is so beautiful! You aren't able to get the full effect on the internet, but the cover has a "shiny" effect. As for the book itself, I am a huge fan of Linda Gerber's Death By Series and my expectations for this book were pretty high...

The plot idea isn't something that would usually interest me. I decided to read it because it was Linda Gerber though. I feel like I should have gone with my initial reaction to the book. The book wasn't all that interesting and from time to time I found my mind wondering other places while reading it. Linda's writing was wonderful, as always, but the whole plot idea just didn't capture my attention.

Ashlyn was a good protagonist and I thought she handled her problems pretty good. I felt a connection to her and I found myself feeling bad for her and her overall situation. I also found myself rooting for her and Jake throughout the entire book.

Overall the whole concept of the book didn't do it for me, but the characters kept me interested. If the book sounds interesting to you though, read it!

Rating: 3 stars / 5 stars
