What she doesn’t want...is exactly what he needs.

Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can’t control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she’s tapped into a killer—or rather, his victims. Each woman’s murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged, no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe her?

Detective Brandt Sutherland only trusts hard evidence, yet Sam’s visions offer clues he needs to catch a killer. The more he learns about her incredible abilities, however, the clearer it becomes that Sam’s visions have put her in the killer’s line of fire. Now Brandt must save her from something he cannot see or understand…and risk losing his heart in the process.

As danger and desire collide, passion raises the stakes in a game Sam and Brandt don’t dare lose.

THE PURPOSE OF THRIFTY THURSDAY IS TO PICK A BOOK WHICH WAS FREE (AT SOME POINT).

I picked this one because it has my preferred kind of paranormal which is psychic / mind type abilities. Romantic suspense is a favorite genre. It also has fairly high ratings on Goodreads.

Sadly, I did not enjoy it.  The characters were not real to me, so I did not have many feelings.  Sam’s relationships with her co-workers didn’t feel believable to me. The plots seemed cliché. I could guess what was going to happen, so also no suspense.  

The editing was okay, without any glaring errors to take me out of the story. There was some repeated wording or overused phrases. Everything looked good, but Tuesday’s Child just didn’t connect for me.

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading.I LOVE books and what they give me.It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way.It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.I'll be doing a feature monthly called Thrifty Thursday,which reviews books (ebooks)that have been available for free.
