Series: Mind's Eye #2
Genres: Paranormal Romance
Sexy, suspenseful #2 novel of the Mind's Eye Series by Deborah Camp. Psychic detectives Levi Wolfe and Trudy Tucker face an unknown foe who is determined to destroy everything beautiful in Levi's life -- including Trudy. Will Levi's love claim her or kill her?
Earlier this year I read and enjoyed the first novel in the Mind’s Eye series about psychic detectives Levi Wolf and Trudy Tucker. In Through His Touch, their relationship continues to grow as someone is killing off women in Levi’s life. Heavy on romance this paranormal suspense was engaging with fleshed out characters.
Coffee dates with Through His Touch
First Date: The story picks up right where Through His Eyes left off in Levi’s penthouse. Levi has himself a stalker and getting to see him on his own and comfortable in his own world was interesting. Of course, he misses Trudy. Trudy decides to surprise him for his birthday and flies to Atlanta. Things get hot, complicated, and sweet. The heat level throughout the novel is high and my nook sizzled.
Second Date: There are some interesting mystery threads..a stalker and a murder but these take a backseat to the romance and fleshing out of the characters. Levi is complicated, and at times, his walls annoyed me. Things he said had me rolling my eyes and wanting to slap him in the back of the head. Thankfully, Trudy isn’t the least bit shy, and she gives it to him straight. The two work well together, he is the yin to her yang. Trudy meets former girlfriends, and we see growth in their relationship. Camp took the time to give us Levi’s backstory, and it helped make him endearing and allowed me to forgive some of his Neanderthal views.
Third date: All right, already, these two are a cute couple but I want more of the paranormal aspects, murder and mayhem. *we are teased throughout the book with these side stories but I am done with the appetizer and want my meal* Finally the visions, paranormal woo-woo and murder mysteries are front and center and this last section of the novel is strong, and gripping. The first two-thirds read more like a contemporary romance, but this last part gave me the same feels as Through His Eyes. *woot*
Through His Touch was heavier on the romantic aspects, and, I really wanted a more balanced novel. It felt like two different stories. I wanted paranormal suspense wrapped in a side of romance throughout the novel. The ending wrapped up nicely and then we get a teaser in the final paragraph about the next novel. If you have ever read the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones you know the kind of ending I mean.
