This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

This is the first of a trilogy and we follow Charlotte Perth, a psychic (oops, clairvoyant as she keeps reminding everyone!) on a murder case. This is exactly the type of paranormal story I like – not too far away from reality so you can just sink into it and enjoy all the benefits (and stresses) from the dead being able to communicate. Carter does the story well. It’s well paced, racing along with plenty of action and twists, but also with a heavy dose of romance and sex, with the tension going up a notch when Nash turns up; an exboyfriend who is less of a jerk than he first seems and appears destined to turn up again in the next two books as Charlotte sorts out just which of the two is for an HEA ending. I loved writing this dynamic in my Stephanie trilogy so I look forward to seeing what Carter does with her three! I also really enjoyed the writing style. From the author’s "about me" at the end, it seems she’s a bit quirky and this comes out in her writing in some wonderful lines. I love the ‘location advantage’ as an excuse for hot sex (there’s a bed, let’s use it!), and had a good giggle at ‘going all seagulls from "Finding Nemo" on me’. It’s a long time since I sat down with my kids to watch this, but I so got a vivid picture from the line! Overall, a page turner with a good story driving it, likeable characters and a nice twist with the clairvoyance. Would have liked a little more tension in the romance but think that might be coming in the next books. This is the first Beth Carter I have read but it won’t be my last!
