OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND
Wareham, a nominee for RT’s 2012 Reviewers’ Choice Awards, is back with a tale that cements her place in the world of romantic suspense with a paranormal twist. In this page-turning contemporary, readers will root for the hero and heroine and will have no problems accepting that, in Wareham’s London, mind-reading is not only possible but is coveted by secret organizations with evil intent.
Research scientist Madison Albi can touch others with her mind-reading abilities and is surprised when she senses a mental link with a homeless amnesiac in an alley. While the scientist in Madison wants to help the man recover his lost memories, her feminine side wants much more. Other than knowing what his name starts with, J is a blank slate perfect for Madison’s research lab, but when she enters his mind and comes up against a solid wall that blocks his memories, they realize his road to recovery will be a hard one. After J saves a neighbor, Madison switches her focus from the lab to personal experiences meant to help him recognize something, anything, he might remember. When they escape the city for a holiday weekend in Wales, Madison breaks through the wall and discovers J is not only more powerful than she thought, but is someone who is supposed to be dead. With an international organization after them, Madison and J must learn to trust and drop more than their mental barriers if they are to survive.(CHOC LIT, Mar., 316 pp., $14.95)
