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.

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.

This was my first of the Everly Gray stories.. and it was an engaging and fun introduction. The writing was sharp, and while occasionally the dialogue lacked a crispness, the story never lost the ability to twist, turn and reveal pieces that were fitting the puzzle into place.

Her psychic superpower is ESP - more specifically through touch: she gets images, feelings and often intent through her fingertips. Her addiction is cinnamon ( even in Kona coffee ). All of those little quirks makes her an incredibly likable character, who is written with a self-deprecating humor that is endearing.

There weren't so many references to the past events that this story would not stand alone, moreover they have whetted the appetite to read more of this unusual series. The characters that were brought in, and their relationships were quickly and clearly defined, and the familiarity that was displayed in their interactions did not distract from the story at hand with overly detailed explanations of past events. There was just enough of the story given to whet the appetite, although much is spoiled by meeting them part way through the series (you know they survived) it's often only the journey that counts.

Another Everly Gray adventure, this time it isn’t so much her hinky fingertips that are getting her in trouble as her curiosity about her family. She flies to Hawaii to search for her grandmother and as the story develops the full cast of characters arrives to help her. But even though they all congregate together there are changes coming, is Everly ready for them? You’ll have to read it to find out.

Being the third in the series, with the effort to complete all the various story threads, has caused this to reach the height of non-believable a few times. After saying this I can only add that LJ Charles writing never disappoints, it picks you up and keeps you involved to the end.

If you enjoy romance and mystery with a little of the paranormal and a lot of humor thrown in, you will not be disappointed in the high jinks these zany characters manage to get into.

Well presented. The characters have a lot of necessary secrets...but, if you are anything like me, this story will keep you guessing. Very believable. I can't wait to open the fourth book in this series.

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.

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.

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!!

I was a bit disgusted by 'holy mamma mia' and was put off my the magical healing scene because it was far too fantastical for my taste. My negative feelings aside, I once again found myself immersed in the world of Everly Gray. For the most part, this was well-written and held my attention throughout. Definitely worth reading.
