“Sending you an SOS.” When psychic Trudy Tucker hears this plaintive cry in her mind and then connects psychically with a little girl’s kidnapper, she is drawn to a small town in Missouri where everyone is suspect – including herself and her lover, celebrated psychic detective Levi Wolfe. As she and Levi work together to sort through whom and what to trust, an innocent life hangs in the balance.
Through His Heart is the third novel in the Mind’s Eye series by Deborah Camp. This paranormal romantic suspense features psychic Trudy Tucker and celebrity psychic detective Levi Wolf. Filled with heat, danger and intense cases from murder to kidnapping each book offers an exciting case with this psychic team.
In Through His Heart, live-in lovers Trudy and Levi are navigating between both of their homes. Trudy is taking Levi home to meet the parents and begins hearing the pleas of a child. She finds herself psychically connected to a kidnapper in Missouri and unlike previous cases; she is hearing the young girl who seems to be sending out an SOS.
The case takes them to Levi’s hometown and forces him to come to terms with his past. Camp did an excellent job of giving us the complete story of Levi’s troubled childhood. It was gritty and intense. One of the things I like about this series is that we continually see these characters develop, learn more about them and have front row seats to the growth in their relationship. Through His Heart is heavy on the heat, as these two cannot seem to keep their hands off each other. We also see them open up more and deepen their relationship.
The case was a fascinating one and it had me flipping the pages. The missing young girl brings us a long list of suspects, interference from family members and threats to Trudy. I enjoyed the way in which Camp weaved Levi’s past into the storyline. Circumstances and certain characters allowed us to understand the damage inflicted upon him. Trudy continues to develop her psychic abilities and I am anxious to see her master her skills and unlock her full potential.
Camp does a great job with pacing and creating suspense. At times I felt we saw too much sexy-time, but in end I was satisfied and in truth it strengthened them as a couple. The author hinted at NOLA as a possible case setting and it made me giddy at the prospect.
Each novel in the Mind’s Eye series features a new mystery/case and theoretically works as standalone. However, I have to urge readers to read them in order since the couple and their relationship is an integral part of the overall arc development. Through His Heart is the perfect romantic suspense to take with you on vacation.
