AN UNHOLY GIFT
When Caroline Emerson wakes up from a coma after a stroke, she feels she is going crazy, hearing voices inside her head. Caroline has been blessed with the miraculous ability to read minds! Overwhelmed by her gift and the enormity of what it means to control the cacophony of voices clamouring inside, she seeks divine assistance.
Newly converted angel, 'Asher, the Angel of Guidance,' is sent down to Earth to help her refine and operate her powers; teaching her to block and read minds with proficiency. They use her 'special skill' to help the police find missing people.
The authorities suspect foul play when a man's wife disappears. However, Caroline and Asher are unable to read his mind; but he can read theirs! Not only can he block anyone scanning his thoughts, but he is able to control others' by using his powers - a gift reserved for the supernatural!
Out of their depth, and unsure of who, or what, they are dealing with, they seek support from 'The Angelic Counsel.' Justice Smith is called in to help.
Together, the two angels discover a man who is not who he claims to be, and hidden beneath his urbane front is an evil criminal with an unholy gift.
An Unholy Gift
Did not finish. The first book in this series “Justice”, is highly recommended, with an intriguing and well crafted take on an unusual theme. I loved the reality of all the characters. Unfortunately, this second book in the series forsakes dialogue, losing the characters and plot in rambling and imagined thoughts, over long boring descriptions of scenery, ambience and circumstances, forced me to skim through page after page, hoping the characters would come to life as in the first book.
