Virginia Dean is in trade as a powerful glasslight reader, which means she can see the historical imprints like photographs in mirrors. She is often hired by people looking for closure or who want to know what happened to their loved ones upon their deaths, and the story begins with Virginia doing just that for a wealthy and respectable Mrs. Hollister. Not long after her reading, Virginia wakes up half naked in bed, in a mirrored room, with a dead Mr. Hollister lying next to her and she's clutching the murder weapon. With absolutely no memory of the events and trapped with no way out, Owen Sweetwater, a psychical hunter and a gentleman, literally swoops in to her rescue and gets her out of there. He's been watching over Virginia ever since he was hired by J&J Investigations to look into the deaths of two other Glasslight readers.Read more ›
Owen Sweetwater is in his early 30s. He is a member of the mysterious and secretive Sweetwater family. They are paranormal hunters and investigators and sometimes assassins of those who are abusing their psychic powers. Sweetwater men are in danger of losing their minds to nightwalking if they don't find their destined mate. Owen sees Virginia and knows that she is the one for him. All he has to do is convince an independent, strong minded woman who sees herself unsuited for marriage that he is the one for her.
Owen and Virginia meet in the course of Owen's investigation into the deaths of two other glass-readers but their relationship takes a new turn when he rescues her from the evil Lord Hollister. It so happens that Virginia has been overcome and wakes up next to a dead Lord Hollister.
I love the quirky characters and crisp dialog in Quick's work. Both characters are strong and quirky and just right for each other. The secondary characters including Virginia's best friend Charlotte and Own's cousin Nick also add depth to this story. I was especially fond of Virginia's housekeeper Mrs. Crofton. Virginia is constantly worried that she will find a better offer and leave Virginia's employ. Mrs.Read more ›
I'm glad I bought it!
It was just OK, I don't know why I bother reading her books about Psychics. They just keep getting more out there. This one deals with a psychic, Virginia (nice name) who reads mirrors. OK, mirrors huh?
She wakes up with a dead man, in walks Owen, who is a psychic investigator, who saves her. They're off to investigate the murder of two other mirror readers, who knew that this was so popular an occupation?
The most interesting relationship in this book? The relationship between Virginia and the housekeeper. That's right, even though Virginia has a half sister and gets it on with Owen neither relationship develops as much as the one between the mirror reader and the housekeeper.
I found the book a bit disjointed and disappointing. The dialogue was witty in spots but I found the relationship between Owen and Virginia somewhat cold. After their first sexual encounter there is no hand holding, looks, blushes, kisses, nothing! Until their requisite second coupling.
The descriptions of the psychic elements were difficult for me to follow.
Overall just an OK read.
