True Colors by Joyce Lamb is the enthralling second book in her series featuring the Trudeau sisters. Alex Trudeau had not comprehended all of the changes wrought by her own close brush with death after the harrowing experiences that her sister Charlie’s encounter with a psychopath triggered. Her recovery from the almost fatal gunshot wound has left her with a startling psychic ability that allows her to experience traumatic experiences both mentally and physically. She is faced with the perils of learning to cope with the side effects as well as the need to counter both her own disbelief as well as that of the man who has become important in her life, detective John Logan. John has his own issues that may interfere with his pursuit of the woman that he has long been attracted to but not only does his history threaten their budding relationship but so does his stubborn pragmatism that rejects any hint of psychic phenomena despite the protestations of both Alex and her sister. The Trudeau sisters fail to receive any assistance from their closemouthed mother but psychic AnnaCoreen continues to offer her services to help them deal with the unexpected talents that they are developing. The question is whether they will find the strength and dexterity to utilize their abilities before a serial killer can destroy Alex’s life.
A chilling and well-written exploration into an intriguing psychic phenomenon that is nicely enhanced by the gradual escalation of tension as dangers mount. The mysteries surrounding the Trudeau family continue to slowly clear as their inexplicable powers continue to manifest in two of the three sisters. The creepy villain juxtaposed with the burgeoning relationship between John and Alex forms a nice backdrop for the exposition of the inciting incidents that Alex gradually uncovers. An enjoyable and mesmerizing addition to the series.
Detective John Logan moved to Lake Avalon, Florida, to put a lifetime of hardship and tragedy out of sight. But when Logan's darkest secret comes to town with revenge in mind, he puts the woman of his dreams in a serial killer's crosshairs.
