From Goodreads.com:
When you can see things others can't, where do you look for the truth?
This paranormal murder mystery will have teens reading on the edge of their seats.
Clarity "Clare" Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch a certain object, and the visions come to her. It's a gift.
And a curse.
When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare's ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case--but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare's brother--who has supernatural gifts of his own--becomes the prime suspect, and Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?
 

The cover isn't my favorite and the summary isn't that intriguing either. I had heard great things about this book though and I knew that I had to read it.

Wow. Kim Harrington really knows how to write a good book. The beginning wasn't a "grab you from the first page", but it got better and better as the book went on. I was left guessing up to the last couple of chapters and thrown a couple surprises. The book is pretty short (compared to most books today), but it was so incredibly good. You'll be able to read this book in one sitting!

Clare is a great protagonist. She definitely has some room for improvement, but no one is perfect right? Gabriel and Justin (said ex-boyfriend) are both incredibly incredible guys. I didn't know who to swoon over! All of the characters in this book are characterized just the right amount, but not too much because Kim Harrington definitely likes to keep readers guessing...

Overall this was a great book and I am eagerly awaiting the sequel!

Rating: 4.5 stars / 5 stars

  1. I've heard such great things about this one... the last few reviews I read have me itching to read it. In fact, I have it on hold at the library, and I think I'll go pick it up tonight!
