First Visions by Heather Topham Wood
Series: Second Sight, #1
Publication: April 27th 2012
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

Two years ago, 21-year-old Kate Edwards became deathly ill and slipped into a coma. While unconscious, she crept into the mind of a missing boy and awoke with the knowledge of his location. Friends and family were skeptical and wary of her new ability to see into the minds of others. Their fears prompted Kate to keep her psychic powers a secret. Feeling alienated, she dropped out of college and spent most of her days holed up at her mother's home.

Now another child has been abducted. Police detective Jared Corbett seeks out Kate for her help in solving the case. Reluctantly, Kate agrees and they must work together to bring 8-year-old Cori Preston home to her family. Although attracted to one another, Jared has a  girlfriend with ties to the abduction case and Kate is sarcastic and guarded since her coma. With visions she can't control and an uncontrollable attraction to the detective, she wonders if she can leave the past behind and finally stop hiding from the world. Otherwise, Cori may be lost forever.

My  Thoughts: 
 This was a great read! I instantly liked Katie and felt like she was someone I could enjoy getting to know. She's a fighter. She had to be. She has gone through a lot. Having a serious illness and slipping into a coma only to wake up with a new ability she can't control. Her life gets turned upside down and she gets ridiculed and ostracized for trying to help! Gah! What else can I say? This book was very well written. It is a first part in a series, but it doesn't really suffer from the usual "info dump" that first installments have. I definitely felt like the characters were well fleshed out and their reactions were all realistic. The romance was peppered with just enough "umph" to make it nice and a bit romancy...I liked it. Not too much not too little! Just right! 

I say read it!
