My Review- I am so glad I stumbled upon this little Gem!
Kris is a refreshingly stable character and has great support around her in the way of two friends she has had with her since college, Roni and Cassie. Though Kris has a little quirk, she is a Precognitive, she sees flashes of the future which may, or may not depending on decisions made, happen with days or weeks of her seeing it. I was very glad the writer did not hang on this detail, it was written in to the book as if it were completely normal. It is a natural ability she was born with.
Kris has quite an idealistic life, she lives by the beach, owns a company that, with the help of Roni's herbal inventions, is growing. She is a very beautiful woman and it is this fact that catches the attention of a stalker who we learn much about and is a very bad piece of work. He creeped me out, that was for sure.
The book follows Kris as she tries to deal with knowing she is being watched, recieving creepy phone calls and having quick visions of the future that puts her friends in danger and Nick, the man she fell for in college and is re-untied with a quarter way through the book.
What I liked most about this book was it was not overly dramatic. Kris is mentally and emotionally strong and copes with the situation very well. I also loved the understated romance with Nick, the evil stalker and the supporting characters such as Dylan and Jerry. They all added great personalities to the story and hope we hear more from them throughout the trilogy.
My only problem was the abrupt ending. It had lent it self to a climax that could have been chilling, painful and incredibly suspensful. I felt it ended too soon and I would have liked to have seen more of a struggle there.
I cant wait to read the second book in the series. Great book!
