Book Description

Two years ago, 21-year-old Kate Edwards became deathly ill and slipped into a coma. While unconscious, she crept into the mind of a missing boy and awoke with the knowledge of his location. Friends and family were skeptical and wary of her new ability to see into the minds of others. Their fears prompted Kate to keep her psychic powers a secret. Feeling alienated, she dropped out of college and spent most of her days holed up at her mother's home.

Now another child has been abducted. Police detective Jared Corbett seeks out Kate for her help in solving the case. Reluctantly, Kate agrees and they must work together to bring 8-year-old Cori Preston home to her family. Although attracted to one another, Jared has a girlfriend with ties to the abduction case and Kate is sarcastic and guarded since her coma. With visions she can't control and an uncontrollable attraction to the detective, she wonders if she can leave the past behind and finally stop hiding from the world. Otherwise, Cori may be lost forever.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"The pacing of this book was phenomenal.  This is just a fantastic read. I can't wait for more. I honestly can't praise this enough." -Read Between the Lines

"I seriously adore Kate Edwards. She is everything I love about a character: charming, sweet, strong-headed and totally hilarious! The chemistry between her and Jared is totally brilliant and I anticipated every scene that contained the two of them. I just loved the sarcastic comments they threw at each other.
" -The Queen of Teen Fiction

"An interesting change of the psychic genre, and kept me wanting to read more through out the novel." -Livin' Life Through Books

"This type of writing makes it really easy to get into the story and First Visions didn't disappoint in this aspect at all. If you're looking for an engrossing, quick, and interesting read, you should definitely pick up First Visions. " -The Ink Puddle

Format:Paperback
Book: First Vistions, Second Sight by Heather Wood
Pages: 228
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal
Source: Sent from author

Short Synopsis: Ever since waking up from a coma, Kate Edwards receives visions of the past, which in turn helps her to find a missing boy.

My Thoughts: An interesting change of the psychic genre, and kept me wanting to read more through out the novel.

Kate Edwards, now 21, has survived a two year coma. Upon waking from the coma, Kate was able to locate a missing boy. And when the information turned out to be true, Kate was bombarded with the media constantly, until Kate lied and told everyone that it was a one time deal.
After the coma fiasco, Kate started to lead a normal life as best as she could, though a little sheltered. Her parents are in denial of her special powers, but Kate does everything she can to cope. It isn't until a handsome cop named Jared Corbett shows up at Kate's door one day. He claims that his girlfriend's sister has been taken captive, and Jared is asking Kate to help him out with any possible leads on the case.
At first Kate denies that she still has the power because of unwanted publicity, but after Jared's visit, Kate has a vision of what had happened to Cori, Jared's girlfriend's sister. Kate decides to help Jared out, as long as her identity stays a secret. But with Jared's jealous girlfriend, Kate's ability doesn't stay hidden very long. Can Kate manage to save Cori from her kidnapper in time, and set aside her strong attraction to Jared too?

A very different take within the supernatural genre. Most psychics I read about have visions of the future, and not the past. It was interesting to read how Kate's powers worked, and how she used them to save the missing kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic Nail-biter May 1, 2012
By Metella
Format:Kindle Edition
I almost hate to use the word "fun" to describe a story that is about kidnapping, adventure, shyness, intrusive media and so many other challenges we humans face. Yet, this book took them all on in a fresh and believable manner. It all felt like it could be a real story, from the fear to the steps the detective had to follow.

Well paced throughout - never gets bogged down in useless descriptions - but keeps you going from scene to scene.

Unlike many books nowadays - you can watch both the main characters grow and change in "normal" ways - they are not flat or static, nor do they make superhuman jumps in behavior. I just really was enamored of this story and I am looking forward to the next - because I hope this turns into a series.

4.0 out of 5 stars delightful clean romance June 11, 2012
By Sarah
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a delightful clean romance with a side of mystery with psychic abilities. It's a short, fun read and doesn't feel rushed or missing anything.

Kate has a great snarky attitude. Several of her comments and antics had me giggling. Jared is hot niceness. He is both patient and flaring with impatience: a study in hot contrasts. He put up with a lot more of Kate's snark than I expected, and could definitely give as good as he took.

This sweet story ended on a happy note, with a definite expectation of more. The story wrapped up, but it was easy to tell this was part of a series. One that I can't wait to read more of.

2.0 out of 5 stars It was ok July 4, 2012
Format:Paperback
Kate is a reluctant medium who's pulled into this missing persons case by Jared, a desperate police detective. In my eyes there were two main plot lines here, 1 the missing persons case 2 Kate and Jared's romantic issues. Plot 1 I enjoyed, plot 2 I had issues with. Plot 1 was intriguing, pulled me into the book and was basically the soul reason I kept reading to find out if they find Cori.
I wasn't crazy about the characters in this book, Kate was immature she blames everything on her being in a coma. While that in itself wasn't bad and could've been a great point to use, I don't feel the author used it to her advantage as much as making it Kate's excuse. Kate knows shes immature but blames it on being emotionally stunted when she came out of the coma. Um... what? She was in college living in a dorm when she went into the coma, so I would've assume she would be above the age of 16 which is how she came across to me. Her tough girl attitude was all a front, because of what she went through when she woke up and helped with a previous case.
Yet to me Kate was just full of contradiction. She's holed herself up in the house, that part was totally understandable, yet she wasn't a complete shut-in going outside to work, party occasionally with her friend. She's angry with her father for leaving her and her mom for another women, yet has only a passing problem with trying to steal another girls guy. Granted the other girl is a super witch, but still.
Jared I didn't get either, he's heading the investigation to find his girlfriend's sister. Which is a conflict of interest to begin with, but I usually give these things a pass since they are so prevalent in fiction. He wants to be the good guy, yet can tell him and Nikki, his girlfriend, are having issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice series starter August 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
First Visions is a nice little series starter and introduction for me to Heather Topham Wood. While I felt that it was a predictable take on a much used storyline, the characters are what made it come alive for me.

I particularly liked Jared, as he was the most solid character of the book. He was charming, hot, and likeable. He was also a gentleman, which is something I appreciated while watching him struggle with his feelings for two women. I also appreciated that he was humble despite his sex appeal and his handling of Kate, who came across as immature for most of the book. As a heroine, Kate annoyed me at times and made me laugh in others. I understand that she's a 21 year old college student, but by 21 I was already married with a child and just can't understand her actions at times. I guess it all comes down to mental age and Kate's came in at around 15. Her co-dependent relationship with her mom didn't help matters, and neither did her temper tantrum about halfway through the book. I couldn't understand how a girl who wants everyone to forget she's psychic, throws a hissy fit when she discovers her mother knew the truth all along but didn't say anything. You're the one who didn't want anyone talking about it! This part of the book grated my nerves...hard...but then, something wonderful happened. Something that hardly ever happens when a heroine is immature or annoying....Kate evolved!

*gasp*

Finally, an author who sees her character's flaws and works throughout the book to fix them. Even Kate knows that she's codependent and ridiculous. By the end, I liked her a whole lot more and I think that speaks to the author's talent.
