* I received a free copy of this audiobook through AudiobookBlast in exchange for an honest review.
Carrie Dowd is a psychic. She can look at a picture of a missing person and know if that person is alive or dead. Sounds great right?
Not so much! Carrie also experiences and feels everything that the person felt while being murdered.
As if that was not enough strain, she is also going through a nasty divorce.
When the mother of a missing teenage girl pleads for her help, Carrie is determined to try. But, will she be able to determine who killed her? Or will her messy personal life cause her psychic gift to go astray?
The storyline of this audiobook is excellent, however the dialogue was horrendous. Almost every time the characters spoke they didn’t sound real. They did not speak the way real people do. For example, when talking to her best friend she is extraordinarily formal. No one speaks that formally unless they are addressing the Queen of England. There was never use of “it’s” instead “it is” was always used. No one talks like that!
Despite the stilted dialogue the story was good. I was genuinely interested in the plot and there were a few surprises which I like.
The narrator did a terrific job on this audiobook. It must have been difficult to try to make the characters seem real when they talked so strangely.
If it were not for the dialogue, this book would have received a 4 star review from me. As it is now I rate it as 3 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐
