The New York Times bestselling author of the Undead Novels takes on reincarnation in this unforgettable Insighter Novel about the pitfalls in past—and love—lives…
Leah Nazir lives in a world where the past can and will come back to bite you in the ass. No, not teething ghosts—reincarnation! As an Insighter, it’s Leah’s job to delve into the murky and (often) deadly former lives of her patients. And she knows a thing or two about danger after killing her mother’s murderer with the help of new beau, Archer Drake.
Isn’t he the best?
Now, it’s time to take their relationship to the next level, but not in any way Leah could have predicted. She and Archer head to Chicago to meet his parents—and try to figure out why Archer’s dad killed his brother decades ago. When someone tries to sabotage their investigation, Leah must decide if the Drake family past is a deal breaker…
Davidson intriguingly intermingles past lives and modern-day family drama in the amusing second Insighters paranormal (after Deja Who). Leah Nazir thought things were bad enough when her mother was killed, but now Leah's pregnant with her reincarnation. Davidson wrings plenty of laughs out of Leah's peculiar predicament before turning to the task at hand: Leah is a top Insighter, charged with helping others sort out and deal with their past lives. She killed her mother's murderer in the preceding novel, and now she and her fianc , Archer Drake, head to Chicago to help Archer's family solve a similar puzzle: why Archer's father killed his brother years ago. Or did he? Davidson keeps readers guessing as she spins tales of characters' former lives and their effects on their present-day incarnations, and charms with an able lineup of supporting characters, particularly Archer's cousins Angela, a no-nonsense Insighter who butts heads with Leah, and Jack, a talented amateur chef. The constant asides distract, as do multiple choppy chapters, but Davidson's trademark humor saves the day.
