The second book of the Samantha McGregor series is fast paced and
exciting. Sam's faith shines through regardless of her circumstances. Carlson challenges readers to find their own
God-given gifts and not to covet the
gifts of others. Themes of discernment
are carefully explored.
Samantha is hopeless at chemistry and is thrilled when she's matched with the studious Garrett Pierson as a lab partner. When she starts to have dreams and visions about a male attempting to commit suicide, Sam wonders if it might be Garrett. Sam is helping the police with a cold case involving an apparent suicide that was possibly murder, so maybe that is influencing her thoughts. Can she discover the truth before it's too late?
