The death of her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger, brings psychic counselor Gwen Frazier back to the small town of Wilby, Oregon, and brings back memories she would rather forget. Two years earlier, a killer stalked the members of one of Ballinger's research studies including Gwen. And though she survived while two others didn't, Gwen knows that Ballinger's death is related.
Sent by a friend to help Gwen, psychic investigator Judson Coppersmith arrives in Wilby barely in control of his own talent and his own life, haunted by urgent dreams. His attraction to Gwen is primal, but there are secrets he must keep to protect himself from surrendering to her completely, even as their investigation draws them into dreamscapes, into decades of deception, and into the paranormal fires of a desire too strong to resist. . . .
Another good installment in the Dark Legacy series, mostly due to the hero. I just adore JAK/AQ/JC heroes, don’t you?
Well, it wasn’t just the hero, believe me. The whole story worked. The instant connection between Gwen and Judson, Judson’s dreams (the prologue was chilling and a great way of pulling the reader in), the suspense (though I suspected how it might all go down), the quirky town-folk, the romance, the intrigue...And that (too short) glimpse into the Coppersmith family. I love that family and I cannot wait to read more about them.
Yes, a wonderful addition to the series and to the entire Krentz/Quick/Castle writing opus, I just wish there wasn’t such a long wait between books in a certain series. I want to read more. ;)
