I wasn't sure about this book when I bought it. But now I am glad I did. I read it in one sitting, that tells you I enjoyed it. It is not a spine tingling adventure, however it was entertaining.
Kelly Santos is an orphan, she returns to New Orleans when her mentor, Sister Grace dies. She also has the SIGHT, and it is very strong in her. It has kept her separated from most other people. She is a photographer. Always keeping the lens between her and the world.
She sits in a restaurant and when she picks up a paper, she sees a murder, not knowing if it has already taken place, or if it is in the future, she contacts the police.
This brings her into contact with Jack Callaghan, a detective, in the NOPD. Jack remembers her from school, he also remembers that she is the one who told him to follow his heart into law enforcement. When the body is found he is assigned to the case.
From here on it is a fast-paced adventure, romance, with a little paranormal activity thrown in.
I liked it. It was fun to read. The story flowed easily and didn't get bogged down. It is not a 5 star read, but easily a 4 star read. A wonderful way to pass a rainy afternoon.
I hardily recommend this book.

A chance picking up of a newspaper transforms New York photographer Kelly Santos life when she returns to New Orleans after Sister Grace dies. The nun had been the only loving influence in her life while she grew up in St. Anne's orphanage. Indeed, Sister Grace had given Kelly her first camera, thereby changing how she sees the world. The distance of the camera from its subject reflects Kelly's own struggles to live in a world where her psychic abilities have always ostracized her.
Touching the newspaper brings about a viewing of the chain events that lead to murder. Kelly reports her knowledge to the local police who scoff at her information; that is, until a victim surfaces that meets her exact description. The police suspect Kelly of committing the murder except for Jack Callaghan, who has previous experience with Kelly's gifts. Further, when Kelly touches Sister Grace's rosary, she realized the nun had been murdered as well. Little does she suspect that she herself may have been the link between the murders and that she is in terrible danger.
Fans of author Metsy Hingle will recognize her remarkable gift for creating gripping tales of romance against a richly realized New Orleans background. Once again Hingle demonstrates her marvelous talent in FLASH POINT as the city aptly frames Kelly's psychic gift. The pace of the plot moves quickly, despite its circular path revisits the crimes through Kelly's skills. Kelly and Jack develop a tender romance even as danger throws them ever closer together. Furthermore, combining the elements of a police procedural with the paranormal results in a gripping tale readers will find impossible to put down. FLASH POINT comes very highly recommended.

The only weakness I found in this story was a small section about halfway through the book where the killer's identity became obvious. Had that paragraph been written a bit more subtly, and a few more red herrings thrown in, I would've been completely surprised and given the book 5 stars.
This was my first book by this author, and I've already ordered the rest of her stuff. I hope it's as good as this one.

I liked this book very much. The main characters were interesting and so was the plot. The whodunnit was not incredibly difficult to figure out but it was a fun ride. Included were 2 romances that the author introduced and developed fantastically. I truly enjoyed the subplots and feelings the characters expressed, and I highly recommend this book!
