Blind Spot

Here's the blurb for Blind Spot by Terri Persons:

FBI Agent Bernadette Saint Clare’s gift of sight allows her to see things others can’t. But some things are better left unseen.

Not always easy to work with, Agent Bernadette Saint Clare has been assigned and reassigned to FBI offices all over the country. Not long after she’s placed at a desk in the basement of the off-site St. Paul office, she’s called on to do what she does best: use personal effects found at a crime scene to see through a killer’s eyes.

In some cases her sight has been astoundingly accurate; in others it has been less than perfect. The agent in charge of this case, Tony Garcia, aware of Bernadette’s spotty record, is unsure if he should follow her lead, and the tension between them makes for an uneasy alliance. To make things more complicated, she becomes involved with her new upstairs neighbor. But there‘s something about him she can’t quite put her finger on—especially when he offers her a key clue to the killer’s identity.

A complex novel filled with quirky characters on the right and wrong sides of the law, Blind Spot reminds us that life is filled with leaps of faith both great and small.

I was a little skeptical about this novel. There's only so many paranormal type books that one can read before they start dreading the idea of another psychic gifted hero or heroine. I do have to say that this heroine completely surprised me. She's so different from the others. She sees things from the eyes of the criminals. Amazing!

Aside from the great heroine, the other aspect that had me glued was the way that whatever the author threw at me, I still wanted to read more. Yes, there were several ewww moments but I kept on reading, enjoying every little bit of it.

Can't wait to get my hands on the next book of the series!
