I speak to the dead.
But he’s not dead.
Every minute lost is another minute closer to his last breath.
We must find him.
I’ve always been an outcast, bullied my whole life. Yet, all I’ve ever wanted to do is to help people. But people are cruel. Unforgiving. Instead of being accepting and seeing the beauty in our differences, some feel threatened. Frightful of the unknown. They want to separate themselves from what they can’t understand. Even if it means kidnapping a young child. With the help of Max’s father and a friend, we are on a hunt to find Max before it’s too late.
I was worried we would never find him. I never thought I would be the one hurt when we did. It’s not easy, and most days, I want to give up. But through a special connection, a deep-rooted friendship, and a blossoming love, I learn who I am and what I’m capable of accomplishing.
Magnolia aka Maggie is a medium. She can see ghost and has been all her life. She started a new job as a 311 operator and is contacted by a spirit but it’s not what you think. I have to say I really enjoyed the first half of the book. The author did a wonderful job laying the groundwork and I really enjoyed the paranormal aspect of this story. The secondary characters were awesome. I couldn’t turn the page quick enough to see what was going to happen next.
The second half of the story was a little bit of a miss for me because I had some difficulty feeling the connection between the main characters. It was obvious they liked each other but I just wasn’t feeling their connection.
The last few chapters seemed rushed but the final pages did hold my attention and makes me want to continue with the series. The way it was left I’m assuming there will be another book. Don’t worry it’s not a cliffhanger. This was my first time reading this author and I was impressed by her author and would most likely read another book by them.
