The Awakening: Book One of the Sisters of Spirits Trilogy by Yvonne Heidt
Publisher: Bold Stroke Books
Genre: LGBT Romance, supernatural
Synopsis: Sunny Skye, a psychic medium, is the head investigator and founder of Sisters of Spirits, a paranormal society dedicated to helping others understand what they can’t see. She is excellent at finding ghosts but finds it difficult to cope in the real world. When she meets Jordan, she is instantly attracted and completely unnerved by the personal demons she carries around with her.
Street tough Jordan Lawson molded herself into what she thinks an excellent cop should be. She trusts only two things: facts and herself. She believes only in the evil that mankind commits and she certainly doesn’t believe in ghosts, even when confronted by one.
When spiritualism and jaded skepticism collide, who backs down first?
Review: I was a little skeptical of this book when I first started reading it, I found it difficult to identify with Jordan who just seemed a bit over the top angry. But as the story unfolded I started to like her and Sunny is just, well, Sunny. Her character is as infectious as her name. By the end I fell in love with the story and with the characters. I am looking forward to the next book in the series and learning more about Sunny's Sisters of Spirit.
