The story revolves around our heroine Honor Melanie Sullivan, or simply Mel, and her determination to get to the bottom of what had caused the death of her best friend Dani and the subsequent disappearance of Dani's baby. Little did she know that she will walk right into a highly dangerous group of people involved in human-trafficking and baby selling. Being the only person who can piece the entire picture together, Mel has to race against time to stop this group of high powered individuals in society from doing further harm. But how?
The highlight for me in this book is Mel herself. In a society where we generally cast certain preconceptions on heroes and heroines, Mel is someone who's nowhere near perfect -- having been diagnosed with autism, run-ins with the law, gotten caught stealing a baby and asked to leave a job -- but with a character and heart as strong and as pure as gold, championing the oppressed and helpless in society. And that's what makes her so likeable and so real. Despite her petite figure and seemingly vulnerable past, she expounds a steely determination to defy all odds and to face off with people twice her size and ten times more powerful than she is to deliver justice.
I also like the author's free flowing informal writing structure. It allows you to submerge more easily into Mel's world, contributing much to how I would shape her character. This is also well reinforced by the story being told from a first person narrative; the only downside of this point is that it is susceptible to less development of the other characters, including the male lead.
I enjoyed every minute of reading Affliction -- a much welcome read and, truly a breath of fresh air! The storyline is believable, even though it features a unique ability Mel has in being able to see the "cleanliness of people's soul" through their eyes. The pace of the story is just right, and the plot has complexities that will keep mystery readers thrilled. All in all, I would recommend this to everyone who's in for an enjoyable weekend read.
Review copy provided by Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.
As anticipated the love interest is sexy and protective, what more could a girl want? I love that he has real faults and can be just as annoying as only the people we care for can possibly be. The plot is solid and engrossing, whilst addressing issues that resonate leaving the reader with food for thought and providing an awareness that today's modern world demands.
The supporting characters, including Mel's family a full on with a lot of colour and I'm desperately waiting to see where the series goes next. I'm so excited that I can go straight on to the next novel and keep up some continuity.
Marilee, when can we expect the next book? I'm waiting!!!
The owner of the bar gives her a room in the motel he owns by the bar. She has a nice thing going there. She meets tall, dark and handsome, Billy the kid and they start seeing each other. She is a soul reader and knows that he is fighting demons of his own being out of the service. She shies away from looking anyone in the eye.
While she is trying to see her friend’s daughter, Destiny, Dani dies and she has to go to her funeral. She sees her friends dad and the good for nothing husband. She also sees a foreign nanny holding her friends daughter. She is with a wealthy couple in a car. She goes to see her and starts finding out things aren’t adding up.
She stumbles onto a baby selling market and tries to figure out what she can do to help the nanny who is also pregnant after seeing a doctor for a physical exam.
Through all this she is trying to help Billy but not get too involved. She meets his sister, Kendra and understands that she was friends with Dani. They were good friends. She is upset that Dani told Kendra about her secret of seeing souls. Kendra vows to help Dani as much as she can.
This story has a little bit of romance, mystery and danger.
Melanie is afraid to go to the cops because there is someone in on the illegal activities in the police department.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved her uncle who was a leader of a motorcycle gang. He sticks around to keep an eye on Mel and help her with her investigation. She also has a surprise when a man comes to meet her and she finds out he is her father who left her mother all those years ago. He has the gift that she does and he is willing to help her with it. So she can learn to use it and trust herself. She can tell when someone is lying and that can help out with this whole case. I was pulled into this story from the beginning and can’t wait to see the next book from this author.
I highly recommend it.
