Ashley Price, a talented young painter who has already managed to make a name for herself, was some time ago involved in an accident that left her for twenty minutes dead. However, the EMTs arriving at the scene managed to revive her. After this horrible incident Ashley can't paint anymore landscapes, which was her specialty, but she paints visions of murder victims that seem to take power over her and force her to paint them. To her surprise, one day these powers force her to paint a new victim who most obviously is still alive. Ashley recognizes the scenery of her painting and rushes to save the man. But Detective Jack Sullivan who is the saved victim isn't really persuaded by Ashley's explanations and believes that she is the accomplice of the serial killer he has been hunting for the last few years.
There were some "spiritual elements" which were well integrated into the plot, however, what happened to Ashley's ability when she finally found love and made peace with herself? I fully understood Jack's initial doubts concerning Ashley's paintings and I liked his explanation concerning her abilities but somehow this "change in mind" came very suddenly and surprisingly. Generally, the plot sometimes gave me the impression of being "unrefined". However, this was an interesting story line that according to my opinion wasn't fully developed - unfortunately.
Ashley was a likeable main character and I could relate to some extent to the stress and pain that was caused to her life due to her accident. I also liked the fact that she tried very hard to fight her "dark side". Exactly this was what Jack did as well. He tried to fight the dark sides of his life and job. Both main characters were well presented and definitely had some chemistry between them. Then why did they live their happiness so late in the book?
Not bad but could definitely be better.
