I've liked everything I've read by Leslie Parrish and this is no exception. The mystery wasn't particularly original but it didn't detract from the story. The fact is, since we're dealing with humans and humans are known to have a pretty common set of dysfunctions (malfunctions?) the mystery was all the more believable. Parrish introduced some interesting characters along with their 'gifts'. Aiden and Alexa were likeable and despite the fact they had their baggage, it didn't make them behave too obnoxiously. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
