When you can see things others can't, where do you look for the truth?
Clarity "Clare" Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch a certain object, and the visions come to her. It's a gift.
And a curse.
When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare's ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case - but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare's brother - who has supernatural gifts of his own - becomes the prime suspect, and Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?
I have to be honest and say that what drew me to this book was its cover. It's beautiful! It also reminds me a little of The Body Finder - really just a contemporary story with a few paranormal elements thrown in and lots of mystery. (And I don't mean to imply I think this novel will be unoriginal. Besides, I loved The Body Finder, so bring on the paranormal murder mysteries!)
