In the new Tidewater novel by the author of Guarded, a kiss between strangers draws both into unexpected danger and unforgettable desire . . .
She’s searching for a sign . . .
Hannah Halloran has always believed in her gift. The things she sees through her psychic touch have never led her wrong before. Not when they led her to an unforgettable night with a sexy marine at a bar. Not when she felt a need to leave her home and find the sisters she barely knows. And not now, when she is an unwilling witness to a brutal murder . . .
He’s ready to show her . . .
All Niall Graham wants is some peace. He’s recovering from the horrors of war, struggling to save his family’s restaurant, and desperate to forget Hannah, the beautiful woman who left him with memories of a mind-blowing night together and a bogus phone number. But a quiet life is hard to manage—especially when Hannah strides back into his restaurant with the news that a serial killer is on the loose and lurking closer than anyone could have guessed . . .
Behre brings her considerable talent for character development to her vivid third Tidewater paranormal (after Guarded). Hannah Halloran has a variety of useful skills: tending bar, waiting tables, painting, and receiving psychic visions from touching certain objects. When Niall Graham wanders into her parents' Ohio bar and she touches his keys, she learns enough about him to ignite desire. Alas, one unforgettable night is all they get before having to move on with their lives. Niall, a Marine freshly returned from serving in Afghanistan, was just passing through on his way home to help his brother run their family's restaurant in Tidewater, Va. Meanwhile, Hannah's working hard to build a career as an electrician. Both are so credible that it's easy to get caught up in their lives and share their experiences as fate brings Hannah to Niall's Tidewater doorstep and makes her the witness to a grisly murder. Slightly uneven pacing is the only drawback to this exciting tale of romance and danger.
