Great read! I enjoyed it very much and am looking forward to more from this author.
The plot is good and I like the idea of a team made up of psychic skills (Summer) and detective abilities (Jerry). It is a really great combination. I think I enjoyed this one more than 'murder in plain sight'.
The fast pace is one of the best things of this book. It drugs you in, wanting to know more. Everything happens fast and the dialogues go straight to the point.
Nikki Broadwell has created a great scenario, mixing paranormal elements, with some politics, converging in a thriller with some twists and turns.
That being said, now I have to explain why this book wasn't my cup of tea.
First of all I need to say, the way they face the dead woman discovery upset me a bit. I don't know how to explain it... in some point Summer was even worried because a storm was coming, and she thought something like "I hopped we could spend some time in the beach. I wanted to work on my tan". Seriously? Is not a priority to know what happened? This probably affected me more than it should but I think, sadly, it determined the rest of my reading.
The other thing I don't get is that they should be a great team: psychic and cop together? Come on! piece of cake! But, no, they are not. They are constantly ranting in a childish way, and dismissing the obvious, or worse, jumping to conclusions without a clear cognitive development (not clear to me, anyway)
For the reasons above it didn't work for me but this is just my opinion and it could work for you perfectly, because, the thing is, I am very picky with suspense themes, so this is a problem of mine and no one else's.
In spite of my rate, you probably should give this story a go, I think it would work perfectly for some readers. So if you are attracted to the synopsis (as I was) and the great cover (it is great) give "Saffron and Seaweed" a try!
