    At the age of fifteen, Olivia Wainwright was kidnapped, tortured, and murdered, only to be revived with the help of another prisoner, Jack Olivia escaped her tormentor and found help, but Jack was never found Now twelve years later, the local news tells of the discovery of a boys body found inside a wall of a local tavern When Olivia goes to the police claiming she knows the identity of the boy, Detective Gabe Cooper is intrigued He knows she is part of Extreme Investigations, a team of private detectives that use their paranormal gifts to solve crimes He doesn t believe in any of that ghostly nonsense, but is willing to give Olivia the benefit of the doubt when he finds that her kidnapper may still be at large.Each member of the team brings a different expertise to the team Olivia can touch a body and relive the last two minutes and ten seconds of that life, finding out how that person died and sometimes even discovering the identity of their murderer Gabe sees the pain she goes through during this process, the nightmares she has for days afterward With her past catching up with her, Gabe and his partner, Ty Wallace, join the Extreme Investigators in solving the murders of several young boys.This is the second book in Parrish s Extrasensory Agents series I liked this one even than the first I don t know if the author has plans for another book in this series, but if she writes it I will read it My rating 4.5 Stars.

    4.5 StarsWow, this book gave me exactly what I needed, even though I didn t realize I was missing anything It was a refreshing palette cleanser that I was in dire need of Romantic Suspense is one of the least frequent genres I read, but every once in a while I need a book like that to shake things up You may be wondering why I mentioned the Romantic Suspense genre when the cover blurb reads like a Paranormal Romance I guess it s because this read like a Romantic Suspense book that had people with paranormal abilities in it, as opposed to a Paranormal Romance with a suspense storyline in it I love, love, love Mr Perfect by Linda Howard, and this reminded me of it Not in storyline or humor, but in the way multiple POV s were featured in order to make a well rounded picture of the plot We saw POV s from the main characters, the villain, some coworkers of the hero and heroine, and even one of the victims Sometimes too many POV s can make me feel a lack of depth in the characters, but Parrish managed it beautifully Instead of feeling a lack, I actually felt like the author built a whole cast of well rounded characters that I couldn t help but become invested in.This book does not shy away from the grim details of bad events happening to good people If you do not enjoy your books with disturbing events that you could see in real life then I would recommend steering clear Not only was Liv a victim herself, her experience gave her the ability to experience death again and again The scenes showing her past and the ones we see that highlight her ability are not pretty They are dark and upsetting, and the author nailed the emotion of the characters so well that it s hard not to get sucked into the moment I absolutely love that we re actually shown those scenes instead of just being told about them.The heroine, Olivia, is absolutely wonderful She has her issues totally understandable , but she doesn t let it control her life She still has friends and doesn t isolate herself from her family, dysfunctional though they may be She doesn t spend her life moping about the past She picked herself up and tried to rebuild her life I have to admire her for that I also like that the abilities that she and her coworkers have are not convenient and easy to manage Sometimes it s hard for them to tell whether their abilities are a gift or a curse I liked that the author managed to illustrate that tragedy breaks down any division between the rich and the poor She wasn t in your face about it, but having the rich girl heroine and the poor boy hero both experience tragedy in the childhood put them on equal footing Liv and Gabe even had a couple discussions about it Gabe kept thinking that their backgrounds were a hindrance to their relationship, but Liv wouldn t let him see a stereotypical rich girl instead of the real her She was so much than that label.Although this book took place in short amount of time, I never felt that the romance was too rushed Gabe was authentically suspicious of Liv s legitimacy in the beginning, and his trust was earned slowly The attraction between them was immediate, but the relationship took a while to blossom I liked that things were developed slowly between them and that they never let their attraction get in the way of the case The only thing that kept this from being a perfect grade was Gabe s attitude toward Liv s job near the end I understand and appreciate that he was concerned about the toll her ability was taking on her, but the things he said to her and her boss really put my back up I did not like that he put that crap on her about it being impossible for her to have a family or a relationship if she continued to use her ability His dismissal of the occasional necessity of her ability really put a bad taste in my mouth Especially when a good portion of the plot relied on her using that ability I really wish she would have turned his accusations right back around on him It s not like being a cop treats you to nothing but the good in people Beyond that minor irritation, I really liked the book I could tell by page 30 that I loved the author s writing style, and I was never proven wrong Although some parts of the book are dark, the author manages a nice balance with humor from the characters I can t wait to see what the next book will be about.Favorite Quote Gabe, she eventually whispered, her voice lazy, sated and thick with sex Yeah, darlin Thanks for pushing me out of the path of that car Pushing doesn t sound heroic enough I didn t push you I swooped in and carried you For a sneak peek check out my Tempting Teaser on Fiction Vixen Review originally posted on Fiction Vixen.

    A murdered woman gets a chance to solve her own murder I am not normally much for suspense but Cold Touch worked for me on so many fronts I loved both of the leads, Liv who has the cold touch and works for a pyschic detective agency and police detective Gabe who is not really open to all things woo woo I thought that the romance between them was well done with a quick attraction but no quick hook up The Gabe s character is honorable and the author doesn t leave that behind to go for the easy fast life affirming sex ploy to get the pair in bed before they have a chance to get to know and admire each other I also found the psychic detective agency angle to be very intriguing, and with the assortment of powers gathered together in that group, those folks are a force to be reckoned with To top it off, the writing just really grabbed me the murder hook sucked me in and I just had to know how that was possible and the suspense part was also very satisfying, it doesn t revel in the bloody or stick you interminally in the murderer s mind and, since we are in on all the clues as they are uncovered, I figured out things pretty much right as the characters did which was a nice stroke to the old ego The story also has some really emotional moments, including one in particular that was really very sad but fortunately, the epilog makes it a little easire to accept Bottom line is that I really really liked Cold Touch, and the supporting cast as well as the leads Even with the size of my TBR mountain, I am definitely going back to read the first book Cold Sight Extrasensory Agents though this one did standalone just fine in case you were wondering and I also will be checking out an old harlequin freebie romance that I have by this author under her other pen name Leslie Kelly.

    Reading Leslie Parrish s books is my guilty little pleasure Why guilty Because when her books come out, I drop everything else I might be reading at the moment, and dive right in Headfirst And I love it.I loved this new installment in her Extrasensory Agents series as well A great mix of romance, drama, paranormal and thriller Because there was no pussy suspense in this book, it jumped right into the thriller realm with a villain there was no space left in his head if you want to know what I mean, you ll have to read the book, and if you re anything like me, you won t be sorry.This time it was the heroine that worked for eXtreme Investigations, and what word it was Olivia could touch dead remains and know exactly what happened in the last two minutes and ten seconds of that person s life Stuff of nightmares, you d think And you d be right.Lucky for our girl, she met a man The right man A tough cop with a heart of gold and a weakness for a redhead with green eyes and a strange affinity to death.And she wasn t just lucky to meet him for her peace of mind, but for her own well being as well.You know what the problem with Ms Parrish s books is I cannot talk write rant about them without revealing spoilers, so I find it really hard to gush about how much I love her books without revealing too much And it s tough to gush when people don t know what you re gushing about I ll keep it brief and simple If you like your reading material to have a lovely mix of genres equal amount of each , great pacing, wonderful characters, thrilling suspense, intense tension, chillingly delicious villains, amazing chemistry, tight plotlines, and twists and turns galore, this is the book for you Despite its predictability I m not talking about page to page know it all, but the certainty of a happy ending it was decidedly unpredictable.I ve grown weary of books where you can see everything that s about to happen from a few scenes before, know the identity of the villain when he she first makes an appearance etc Cold Touch kept me on my toes and on the edge of my seat And the final twist not the accomplice one, because I saw that one coming in the end really threw me Was it necessary Yes, to solve the mystery, but that could ve been solved without that sacrifice And I would ve loved to see two happy endings instead of one, but it wasn t meant to be.I m not saying that final twist ruined the book for me, because it didn t, it just added another layer to the whole story, I m just saying I could ve done happily without it But then, we wouldn t have an interesting epilogue P.S Oh, I thought of a downside to this series Only one book a year So not fair.

    Olivia Wainwright has a terrifying gift When she touches a dead body she can live the last 2 minutes and 10 seconds of their life The ability first showed up after she was kidnapped at the age of 15 It was an awful experience, she barely managed to escape with her life intact The only reason she succeeded was Jake, a boy who worked with the kidnapper, who saved her life So when she sees his face on the news, as an unidentified Jimmy Doe, she knows she must do whatever she can to repay her debt.And that s when Detective Gabe Cooper comes along Gabe is in charge of the murder investigation When he first sees Olivia he s enchanted by her, and her story damn near breaks his heart, but her ability makes him skeptic and not so glad to meet her But he sees the light soon enough And together they decide to do anything in their power to catch the killer.Olivia, understandably, has a lot of issues that stem from her abduction In the following years she felt like a freak, but when, three years ago, she started working for EXtreme Investigations, she finally felt like she belonged.And now there s this wonderful man in her life, a man with whom she can imagine a future The only thing they need to do is stay alive.Gabe is a great hero, patient, understanding and willing to protect Olivia from everything, including herself The whole solution to her job was great I like how the mystery got tied up It wasn t easy to guess, and it made awful sense.I love all the employees of EXtreme Investigations Starting with Julia and her ghostly partner, though guy Derek and his bike, Mick and lastly Aidan I m looking forward to reading their books I particularly want to see how Julia gets her HEA.Rating 5 stars

    Very good romantic suspense with a touch of paranormal The mystery suspense was well done The last half which had me on the edge of my seat I didn t see the ending coming at all a total shocker The romance parts were also handled well the relationship built over the book and they didn t immediately fall into bed I liked the main characters and supporting cast I think it will appeal to paranormal romance fans as well as romantic suspense fans.I also enjoyed the first book in this series, but just not quite as much as this one.
