Publisher's Summary

When children begin to go missing, Detective Connor McLain pursues every lead at his disposal. At least until Michele Easton comes to him with information she should not have.

Although she claims the info had come to her in visions, Conner is skeptical. Until the threats begin arriving - then his suspicion is replaced with concern. Somehow Michele calls to every protective instinct he has. Michele had sworn she'd never speak of her dreams again. But her fear for the missing children is compelling.

At first Conner McLain typifies everything she'd come to expect from the police. But she hadn't expected to entrust the man with her life. She hadn't expected to fall in love....

To much sex

If you like reading about sex every 100 words this book is for you. If you like to just get on with the story than you probably shouldn’t read this one.

More romance than mystery

The focus of this story is "romance" and the developing relationship between the main characters, the psychic and the detective, not the missing kids.

Hmmm..

This was just an OK story but it left you wondering why the missing kids weren’t mentioned more than 4 or 5 times until another kid went missing at 61%, when Michele had another dream about it. Really, Connor didn’t seem concerned about them. He never, ever went out to check a lead, never talked to his partner Cruz about it, and certainly never believed it when Michele told him about her dreams. I think this should have been a book about something other than missing kids. It just seemed there wasn’t enough concern about them to make Connor or Cruz overly likable. Connor and Michele had pages and pages of sex 2 or 3 times, and Cruz fixed her window because someone had been in her house, but their attention to the kids was nearly zero.

Finally, Connor and Michele were together when she had a dream and she told him of a girl missing and had him call the precinct and they told him no one had reported anyone missing, until later that morning when they were having coffee and Connor got the call. She had to beat him over that head with her gift before he would believe her. And when Cruz told Connor they needed to get Michele into the office to see if she remembered anything else Connor went off on him. It was like he’d rather protect Michele from any discomfort or bad memories than to save those 6 missing kids? That didn’t make a bit of sense. At 61% I wasn’t sure I wanted to finish this book it was getting so ridiculous.

I’ve read 4 of Ms. Brant’s books in the last 5 days, not including this one, and this is definitely my least favorite. It was like the missing kids took second place to everything else that went on in the book. I think this story needs to be rewritten, make it a murder mystery or stalker or something other than that of 6 missing kids that I felt were virtually forgotten about most of the time.

As I mentioned earlier that was sex in this book, 2 or 3 explicit scenes. And there was a little bit of swearing, nothing too serious.

As to the narration: Again Ms. Marlo did a very good job. A little bit of emotions and the men sounded like men. Amazingly, every man had his own voice. That’s saying a lot for a female narrator. Usually every man has the same voice, just like every woman has the same voice when a man narrates. So, kudos to Ms. Marlo.

Narrator

There is only a female narrator so I didn’t get past the introduction - unfortunately. Prefer male with female.

The genre of this book should be listed as romance.

Although well written, this book revolves around a developing relationship between, Psychic, and deceive. So mystery/ thriller genre is not the main focus.

Soft core porn

The storyline is great, but complete chapters dedicated to sex acts and romance. Should've been labled as genre fiction or Chick-lit. If you want unending sex, this is the book for you.

Great for a teen romance

I found myself laughing at all the vapid seriousness. The story is shallow, the characters are just silly.
Can’t even come up with more words, anything would make it sound better than it is ...

Not Kylie’s best

Characters are stereotypes and annoyingly stubborn over and over again. A psychologist who doesn’t communicate got old. The mystery part of the story was anti-climatic. Not as good as her Mind Hunters series

boring

this is not a great nor particularly a good book. I kept waiting to hear more regarding the clairvoyance but it was all about the relationship. the story could have been told in three chapters. thank goodness it was included and l didn't pay for it, I would be asking for my money back.

This is a romance novel disguised as a mystery

The language and scenes come from the romance genre. This is not a serious mystery novel. In addition, the author need to look up the definition of bemused, a word she uses a lot but has no clue as to its meaning

Taking the Precipice

Written in 2012, beautifully narrated, it has all the squishy passion and language of that era, minimal swearing and no coarse sex talk, no lube. Like a novel by Sandra Brown, cozy and comforting regardless of the harsh subject matter, assured of a HEA.

The MCs are cookie cut in their roles and personas.

SWEETLY ENJOYABLE

Mystery or romance?

The story was spoilt for me with too much attention to Michelle and Connor and not enough about the kids

There is no story

This book sounded SO exciting, with missing children and a clairvoyant, but this book contained almost nothing about the crime.
Over 80% of this book was a Romance Novel . . . ."twinkling green eyes" and "curled hair like burnished gold", alongside plenty of sex!
Lots of wonderful adverbs, but there was no story and even the timeframe/context of the whole relationship was poor . . .referring to "they always do that" and "seen that so many times" when they had literally known each other 2 weeks!
I was SOOooo disappointed.

romance not crime.

struggled to finish this, certainly not a gripping listen. Kylie Brant did a good job narrating but the story was uneventful and boring.

No, not a thriller!

Unless you’re thrilled by tacky sex scenes and misogynistic “heroes”.

The concept is quite good - psychologist has dreams that could lead to finding stolen children, however, the main characters seem to lack a sense of urgency and instead of searching, bonk themselves through interminable chapters whilst the poor children languish unfound.

There are better ways to spend 8 hours.
