Synopsis: A spell that tore three sisters apart is broken four hundred years later, when the magic in their blood reunites them. Now, one of them will discover her gift--and reignite a love long thought lost…
Flame-haired Becca Carstairs was born to be a veterinarian. Since childhood, her affinity for animals has been special, and her healing touch nothing short of magic. But only Becca knows the truth--that she alone can hear the creatures' voices. She's always trusted her sixth sense…until a string of missing pets, an attempted murder, and a face from her past converge into one explosive mystery, with her at its center. Is haunted Owen McAllister, the boy who broke her heart ten years ago, related to the sinister crimes that have peaceful Three Harbors, Wisconsin, on its guard? Or is his reappearance part of the answer to questions that have troubled her all her life? As Becca delves into her strange heritage, she'll have to fight for her life…and the man she will always love.
(42)Review: I love this series, so much fun but also a good action mystery with romance thrown in.
In the first book we were introduced to Raye who speaks to ghosts in this book we meet Becca who can talk to animals and has the ability to heal, I can't wait to meet the 3rd sister and find out what her gift is! Trained as a vet Becca just thinks she is good at her job and the discussions she has with her patients and gut feelings about what is wrong with them is all in her head, but of course its much more than that.
Not only can Becca heal animals she can heal people and as the book progresses you find out just how this gift has guided her life. I really enjoyed this book, it didn't build at as slow a pace as the first one, and there were less crimes to investigate and follow but it didn't lack for anything. I loved that Raye and the other players from book 1 made an appearance and I once again fell under the spell of Handeland's storytelling.
The romance was hot and steamy without being too graphic and and the mystery and danger continue to leave you turning the pages as fast as you can.
