Sleep With the Lights On by Maggie Shayne
I was really excited when I heard about this book because it sounded so good. I was lucky enough to able to read an ARC e-book of it. At first I wasn't sure if I would like the mixed POV's- heroine Rachel is first person, hero Mason/the rest of the novel is third person but because the book was not what I could call a romance, it worked for me. I was surprised that I liked the mix. I was happy to discover that the upcoming December book by Ms. Shayne also will feature these characters because both characters are deeply flawed and I'm curious to see if things I felt weren't wrapped up will be addressed. This book was well written and fast paced and I couldn't put it down. Although a bit predictable in some regards that was okay with me. I'm also a sucker for books with dogs in them. I have a bulldog, and Myrtle is spot on! Ms. Shayne has developed a book with characters I want to continue reading about. There are a few creepy parts- Ms. Shayne has cinematic style that may have some of you sleeping with the lights on long after you turn the last page
THIS BOOK IS OUT SEPTEMBER 24TH! LOOK FOR IT!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Through the eyes of a killer…
Rachel de Luca has found incredible success writing self-help books. But her own blindness and the fact that her troubled brother has gone missing have convinced her that positive thinking is nothing but bull.
Her cynicism wavers when a cornea transplant restores her sight. The new eyes seem to give her new life, until they prove too good to be true and she starts seeing terrifying visions of brutal murders—crimes she soon learns are all too real.
Detective Mason Brown's own brother recently died, leaving behind a horrific secret. In atonement, Mason donated his brother's organs, though he's kept the fact quiet. Now he wants to help Rachel find her brother, but when he discovers the shocking connection between her visions and his own brother, he suddenly has to do everything in his power to save her from a predator who is somehow still hunting from beyond the grave.
