Book Review: Cold Touch: Extrasensory Agents Book 2 by Leslie A. Kelly

I like the way the author is approaching this series by focusing on each member of the Extrasensory Agents detective team. Each has their own background story and the murder mystery plot brings out not only their story and their talent, but their personality in full bloom.  With Cold Touch she delves into the life of Oliva, who upon touching the remains of a dead person relives the last two minutes and few seconds of that persons life. What a burdensome gift that takes much out of the woman.

I read this one straight through and really enjoyed the plot. There were a lot of movie, TV, and book references by the characters, and I could have done a few less of those. There is always that underlying romance and I skim through most of those parts. In this one much could not be skimmed through, but, those were the individual characters expressing their internal thoughts about the person to whom they are attracted. I suppose for romance readers those parts were good build up of the developing romance.

There was  great, totally unexpected, twist at the end which I really liked. In a who-dunit those surprises are a delight to this reader.  I like guessing what will happen and though some correct guesses are expected it is always fun to find something totally out of left field  that had obscure clues in the story that were not recognized until the finale.

If you like a romance with a good plot then this author is one you will enjoy. If you like a good murder mystery and either don’t care about the romance or are willing to skim over those parts then you will enjoy this one as well. I would not recommend for teen under age 16 due to the one scene with sexual content. Cold Touch is available on Kindle Unlimited

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.
