An intriguing paranormal tale that combines romantic suspense with a mesmerizing tale of otherworldly beings. The vivid image of the anomalous clue in the mirror is spine-chilling and the description of the subsequent investigation is filled with sprinkled with unexpected developments. The Memphis police department may have to take on new consultants regularly given its connection to eerie phenomena but fortunately there are those who are willing to step up and this feisty heroine is one of them. I like that she is flawed yet has people around her to see that she can be so much more than she believes. The gradual reveal of the backgrounds of a couple of the men in Cait’s life is fascinating and I look forward to learning more about her capabilities as well as their roles in helping her grow. A couple of the scenes remind me of a certain movie about psychic phenomena and I suspect that Cait’s life is going to get progressively more complicated since the voices in her head are not only multiplying but are also developing personalities and demands. An enjoyable read, can’t wait to read more!
“Shattered Souls” by Delilah Devlin is the first book in the delicious ‘Caitlyn O’Connell’ series featuring an ex-policewoman turned private investigator. Caitlyn (Cait) has suppressed many of the events and challenges from her past but she unwillingly discovers that the flame between her and her ex-husband, former partner Sam Pierce, still burns brightly. The horrific murder of her mentor draws Cait into a hunt for a non-human entity which is threatening to wreak havoc on Memphis as it grows in power. Cait learns that there is more to her current associate, Jason Crawford, than she previously realized and that the powers that she has rejected for so long may need to be embraced if she and those she loves will survive her quest for justice.
