A missing child.
A gifted psychic.
A serial killer who preys on the innocent.

When a little girl named Faith goes missing near Two Harbors, Minnesota, psychic Carissa Jones offers to help locate her. Desperate to find the child, and with no real leads, the local authorities agree to pull her into the case.



The purpose of Thrifty Thursday is to read a book which was free (at some point).

Kindle freebie on August 25, 2017  (currently $2.99 at Amazon. It is in Kindle Unlimited so only in paperback for $8.99 at Barnes & Noble as of writing this post)

Overall rating 3.91 with 526 ratings and 55 reviews


This was great for me in so many ways! It has my favorite paranormal thing. I usually say magic is my favorite but really it is the mind stuff – clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition, etc.  The main character is Carissa, who is a psychic. She helps to locate missing people and sometimes knows in advance when children will be kidnapped so she can intervene.

The overall plot was pretty good; I didn’t guess the kidnapper until he was revealed. The other characters were not as well developed and a bit more stereotypical without the complexity or depth. Overall, Searching for Faith is not long, a quick, fun for me read. I loved the world building though since this was set in Minnesota and I lived there 35 years. So I enjoyed all the places and could easily picture them.

The next in the Missing series is Looking for Lainey, available October 17, 2017. I am so excited to continue with this series.

Reviewer at The Book Nympho
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.

    • yes, this one is not as complex as some of the best books I have read but it struck all the right notes with me. I find some of the best freebies are the first in first in the series ones (which this one is) and one wants to go on and read the series.
