Publisher's Summary

Laura Burton has a secret. One that she has always been able to count on until Carter Price crashes back into her life.

As a paramedic, Laura helps people, but her secret power heals them, or it had until now. She hasn’t seen the billionaire tech mogul since he broke every promise back when they were dating in high school. Now, in the back of the ambulance, Carter’s breaking the rules again when her power fails to work on him. Laura needs to find out why while managing to keep herself and her son afloat on a shoestring budget, when Carter offers her a deal. Live with him and help him recover in exchange for free rent. Can she figure out what has gone wrong while guarding herself from getting hurt again?

A steamy, second chance romance, A Touch of Healing is the first book in the Sisters in Sirens series. If you like strong women with secret superpowers and the men who love them, you’ll love Kathryn K. Murphy’s newest pause-resisting romance.

Interesting Second Chance to Love!

This is the first book in The Sisters in Sirens Series. Laura and Carter's story is interesting and original. Laura is a single mom, and a paramedic with secret superpowers. Carter is handsome, and enigmatic. This is a great second chance to love, filled with drama. Frances Anderson did a good job with the narration. Looking forward for more in the series. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily written this review.

Great listen!

I listened to book 2 before this one and loved it so much I came back for book 1.

The MFC has the ability to heal but it’s a secret that she does not share. She is currently a single parent and, although content with her job as an EMT, would like to study to become a doctor or nurse.

The MMC is the former hometown bad boy who is back after he loses someone close to him. While in high school, he used alcohol and drugs and cause an accident, he did, however, become clean and go in to run his own IT company.

These two have a history and they reunite but there is some trouble that cause some issues, but they do get their HEA.
This was a great story and narration was wonderful.

Beautiful second chance story! ❤️

I really enjoy Kathryn K. Murphy’s books!  Laura and Carter have a history that was not the best, but they have been brought together by an accident that has given them a second chance.  They are great together and this is a steamy, wonderful story, but they have some things to work through before they get there.  You will love all of the characters in this story, especially Laura’s son!  The narrator, Frances, did a great job narrating this book.  She brought the characters to life, and she gave each character a unique voice.  I am looking forward to the next book.

Positively Enjoyable!!

This was a lovely story! I enjoyed the depth of the characters, from Laura being single mom doing her best for her small family, to Carter being raised by a single mom to becoming a billionaire. Laura is such a strong character, but she's also a little stubborn because she wants what is best for Holden and sometimes that means asking a certain ex-boyfriend and current billionaire for help. Her and Carter's interactions were perfect!
I loved Holden! He's such a sweet, happy boy! But also the story with a 3 (almost 4 year old) is excellent birth control for me because I definitely don't have the patience Laura does.
The paranormal element is pretty small in the story and it's largely contemporary.
The story does set up for the rest in the series and the second book recently came out, so something to look forward to!

The story is told in dual POV, from Laura and Carter's perspectives. It contains swearing, some steam, discussions of alcohol/drug abuse, and the main character is an EMT, so there is discussions of medical procedures.

I liked the narrator. I thought she did a fine job telling the story. Though, there were times where I had a little trouble figuring out if it was an inner monologue or if the character was actually speaking. I also listened at 1.1x speed and I enjoyed it more at that speed.

Very enjoyable.

I really enjoyed listening to this second chance billionaire romance. The two main characters are both very special and captured my heart.
I was gifted the Audible version of this book from the author through Story Origin. The narrator did a good job with this book. I found her little boy voice a little abrasive, but I couldn't have done any better!
I would read this author again. She left a teaser for a future book at the end!

interesting book. good second chance romance

second chance romance with a twist of magic. I did enjoy this book, there were parts that annoyed me such as when Laura pushed him out the house to go to ruby but then blamed him saying he left fast....

I liked the twist at the end, and will definitely read/listen to the second.

the narrator did a good job with the story.

Very Slow Burn

This is a sweet and very slow burn second chance story. I did feel that the h was a bit too whiny and kept jumping to her own conclusions every time the H was trying to apologize or explain something, but other than that found the story cute and the little toddler Holden's very sweet and crazy antics. The narrator did a good job with the characters but think the H's character would've come out a little better with a male voice.

A Touch of Healing

okay this was a good book. I love how it all turn out. but that ending has me wanting the next book. I hope it comes out soon. because I do want to know what she found out about the ex- husband, but also who the next person to find love is. I just love happy endings.

sweet story

This was my first book by the author and I really enjoyed it. I got this as an audiobook and it was so much fun to listen to. The narrator did a nice job with differentiating the characters and bringing them to life. This is a sweet story about love, forgiveness, and second chances. Carter and Laura have a painful history, but fate has brought them together again for a second chance. They were great together and had a real connection and such great chemistry and you will absolutely fall in love with her son Holden. This was a fun and heartwarming story and I will definitely be looking for more of Ms. Murphy's books! I received a complimentary copy from StoryOrigin and am voluntarily leaving my review.

Small town, second chance romance

Laura can heal people, its her secret and its what drove her to join the medical field. Only a broken marriage and a little boy has caused her to pause her long term plans. Ex high school boyfriend Carter makes a surprise appearance and brings back some feelings she didn't think she'd have again.
I did struggle to like Laura for a while, she seemed determined to be a martyr when it came to being a single parent, refusing any help offered even if it made her life even harder. She was also very judgemental when it came to Carter.
I enjoyed watching Carter trying to get to know Laura again, but boy did she make it hard work for him.
For me, this book is too long for the storyline content, but it does give you chance to get to know that characters a whole lot more. Saying that, the ending felt rushed after everything Laura and Carter had to go through to be together, I would have liked to see more of how their life together looked rather a quick wrap up in the epilogue.
Narrator Frances Anderson does a great job overall. However I did sometimes struggle knowing who was talking in some conversations as the voice distinction was minimal.

healing

I loved the narration of Frances Anderson, bringing the characters and plot all together. Making this a great listen,

Carter and Laura have a painful history, but fate has brought them together again for a second chance. Carter made some awful decisions as a teen. Laura has a young son, she also a true healer and is a paramedic.

These two are meant be together. Loved this story.
