A suspicious death. A ghost in a mirror. The New York Times bestselling Dark Legacy novel from the author known for crafting stories of burning passion and chilling suspense...
The death of her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger, brings psychic counselor Gwen Frazier back to the small town of Wilby, Oregon, and brings back memories she would rather forget. Two years ago, a killer stalked the members of one of Ballinger’s research studies—including Gwen, who survived while two others didn’t. Now, she’s sure that Ballinger’s death is related.
Sent by a friend to help Gwen, psychic investigator Judson Coppersmith arrives in Wilby barely in control of his own talent and his own life, and haunted by urgent dreams. His attraction to Gwen is primal, but there are secrets he must keep to protect himself from surrendering to her completely, even as their investigation draws them into dreamscapes, into decades of deception and into the paranormal fires of a desire too strong to resist...
Krentz returns to the world of her sexy psi investigators in a strong sequel to Copper Beach (2012). Judson Coppersmith s innate psychic gifts allow him to detect resonance from violent events and sense the emotions of a killer s mind. Gwen Frazier is a dream counselor who reads auras and translates the psychic resonance of violent deaths into visions of ghosts. When Gwen s mentor is murdered with a paranormal weapon, Gwen turns to the Coppersmiths for help, giving her a chance to explore her compelling lust for Judson. Krentz balances the protagonists mutual attraction with their insecurities; Judson, who is fighting nightmares of a traumatic event, fears being viewed as a potential client, and Gwen worries her contagious dreams will ruin this relationship as it has others. The triple twists in the murder case make the plot convoluted and tedious, but a long denouement gives the characters a chance to build a real relationship after the threats of violence are gone.

Another great read
As always I loved this book. Characters can be found in different eras with the same last names. I feel like part of the family through the years.
Another disappointment. The dialogue was stilted and lacking in passion, and there was constant explanation going on. I cannot believe that Jayne Ann Krentz wrote this book, or that I spent $12 to read it.
