An intricate and fast-moving story told from multiple points of view make this paranormal thriller/romance stimulating and consuming.
From The Book Description:
Reluctant psychic Gypsy Shields (she prefers the term “intuition consultant”) finds herself in trouble when, on her way home from a blind date, she interrupts a kidnapping in progress. Her heroic attempt to intervene is repaid with a collision between the attacker’s van and a brick wall. She awakens in hospital, paralyzed on her left side and unable to speak. Unable to share vital information about the crime she witnessed. Fortunately, her telepathic connection with her niece helps her throw a line out, attracting the attention of a police detective: Connor Reardon, Gypsy’s date the night of the attack.
Stepping in to protect Gypsy, Connor even listens to her claims of psychic power. She soon senses he’s concealing certain powers of his own. Nor are they all he’s concealing. A part of Gypsy’s new ally’s mind is closed to her””what she cannot know is that Connor suspects the kidnapper is someone close to him, and the victim holds secrets that will tear through Connor’s department, putting careers and lives at risk. Including Gypsy’s, as she is left recovering in hospital and vulnerable as the attacker turns his sights on her once again.
Can she use her powers to track down the perpetrator in time to prevent her own murder?
R+W Journal Review
The heart of this supernatural suspense thriller (with a touch of romance, as the cover insists) is the heroine. She is quirky and flawed enough to be instantly sympathetic and someone most readers empathize with immediately. As a psychic who is conflicted about her gifts, or perhaps because of that conflict, Gypsy finds herself involved in a byzantine plot involving a kidnapping, partial paralysis, and a mystery that must be solved. Told from multiple points of view, author Andrea Drew not only draws the reader into Gypsy’s world, but deftly provides insight into the motivations (or supposed motivations) of the other characters.
This first novel in the series requires both close reading and contemplation, and you may find yourself needing to stop a moment and collect your thoughts in order to catch up with where the story is going. By the end, however, you will be glad you put in the effort: Gypsy Hunted is the sort of book you will stay up late into to the night reading, only to wish there was more when you’ve finished it.
