Book Description

From USA Today Bestselling Author, L. j. Charles:
Everly Gray's past would have been laid to rest with her parents...if only she hadn't opened an old letter and unleashed long-hidden secrets.

Now everything she believes in, everything she trusts, is gone. Except her genetic link to the secrets of an ancient toxin--lethal, unless she finds the antidote.

When those close to her are poisoned, and traditional medicine has run out of options, Everly's one hope is to learn the magic of Hawaiian shamanism, and to accept her gifts as a Kahuna healer.

Free fall. No parachute. Until she learns to trust in the strength of who she is, and in the universal power of love.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

In the Everly Gray Adventures I intended to grow her personality with her experiences--a 'coming of age' series so to speak.
 
In a Touch of Ice, Everly is closer to a twenty-something than a thirty-something. She's sheltered herself from the world to protect her gifts, focusing only on her personal coaching business to the exclusion of life experience.
 
A Touch of TNT brings her into the 'tumultuous twenties' when she begins to share her gifts and use them to help law enforcement. In To Touch a Thief, Everly stretches her wings to become a leader rather than a follower, and a Touch of the Past brings her to a critical turning point when she faces her heritage and begins to accept who she is as she moves into her true chronological age.
 
In a Touch of Betrayal, Everly becomes an adult and discovers 'the other side of romance.' This is not a happy-ever-after story, but it opens the door for a new world of adventure.
 
As Everly has grown up, she's pushed my boundaries as a writer, and Betrayal took both of us into new territory. I hope you enjoy the ride.

About the Author

I have worked with energy, both as a yoga instructor and as a body worker for many years. When I left that profession, I was driven to write about energy and the paranormal. Many of the situations my heroines experience are created from my own encounters with energy, its power and possibilities. As to the "writing," well, that started when I was eight and penned my first book on pink construction paper with a purple crayon. It was a romance that involved a princess, and although I remember very few details about the plot, I do remember that it was illustrated and there was music and dancing involved. At about the same time I created my first story, I discovered Nancy Drew and my love for reading was born. It has only grown over the years, and I am rarely without a huge to-be-read stack, and a book within easy reach. Now days I write award winning women's fiction and young adult novels. All of my stories combine romance, mystery, and paranormal elements. The paranormal, because it's a huge part of my life, the adventure and romance because I haven't ever outgrown my early reading adventures with Nancy, Ned, Bess and George. I live in the frozen north with my husband, whose TBR stack is taller than mine, and two felines who have been known to add entire pages to a manuscript without telling me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprised..ina good way! December 3, 2012
By JRH55
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will tell you that I was not impressed with the second book and my review says that, but the third book was very well done; completely different than the 2nd book.
Why did I buy the third book when I didn't care for the 2nd?; it's an easy read and my life situation right now requires something light and easy..so I did buy the third.
This book concentrates on Everly's roots and brings together the normal cast of characters, but still introduces some new ones. The development of the characters is more apparent in this book, although some are still sketchy. This story was much better in plot development, character interactions and the conclusion. I still think there are areas that could be improved upon, but so much better.
I enjoyed this book and will purchase the next in the series; I'm hopeful this positive change in writing continues.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 stars June 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I see that I am giving this review the lowest # of stars so far, and I find that hard to believe! I love paranormal stuff, especially when you delve into ESP, clairvoyancy, and that type of thing. However, this series is starting to get a little too hokey for me. When Everly heals her 2 friends with some powers she just discovers by picturing rainbows and such, I couldn't help but roll my eyes. And the main character's repeated phrase of "Holy Mamma Mia" was driving me crazy! The main character is annoying with her emotional ups and downs and trust issues.
Put that with I just read a major future plot spoiler ON THE AUTHOR'S website, and I am done with this series.

The characters in the book are so believable and the story line is quite well thought out. This is the third book in the series and I will continue to read the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast moving with twists and turns April 8, 2014

I enjoyed this third book in this series. The main character is definitely different and interesting. The plot is unique, but plausible. I have a hard time setting this book down. I am looking forward to reading more of this author's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Everly, go! January 12, 2014

This series is fun. I enjoyed the new setting, and the descriptions of Hawaii are very well done. I'd recommend reading the first books in the series before this one as it does continue the stories set up in those books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable series May 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed this whole series. Everly is a likable heroine and the supporting cast of characters work really well. I've read all of them at this point and am eagerly waiting for the next installment. You definitely notice a progression of her character through out the series. It's not the same story told over and over again

I love this series. It grabs your attention and when it's over you can't wait to read the next one. I purchase the first book in the series and as soon as I was finished reading it I downloaded the next one and read the whole series back to back. I can't wait for the 6th book in the series!!
