My daughter purchased Cold Sight by Leslie A. Kelly and posted a recommendation on her Facebook before she even finished the book. I checked it out and decided from the sample that it would be worth reading. I like mysteries and this one is definitely well written. As a secondary plot line there is a developing romance in the book. I’m not a great romance reader so I have to admit that I skimmed through the intimate scenes.
Though the romance parts may have added to character development I did not feel like the characters were shallow without the romance. The character development is well done and the plot is great. The criminal subject matter, the disappearance and murder of teenage girls, may be a little shocking for some of very tender heart. I feel that the topic was handled well and was realistic enough without becoming overly gruesome. The paranormal or extrasensory gifts of the main character, Aiden, and those of the supporting characters in the Extrasensory Agents team are believable. The talents this author brought together make a pretty remarkable team.
The other main character, Lexie, is a reporter of impeccable journalistic integrity; a rare quality. Aiden is not used to reporters with integrity and it takes a special talent to bring him out of his shell to become involved in another missing persons case. Lexie doesn’t take long to pique his interest in the case, though.
I would not recommend for teens under 16, but that could be the overprotective grandma in me. The series features a different person of the Extrasensory Agents team as the main character for each book. I do look forward to reading the rest of the series. I understand that my daughter has purchased the next three books in the series. Off to read some more.
