Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Dark Water by Tricia Tyler

I hadn’t read anything by this author before but she’s quickly jumped to one of those whose books I’ll always look out for. I thoroughly enjoyed this paranormal romantic suspense and found it to be a real page turner. The reader is placed into the action from the very start when the mutilated body of a young woman is being examined by the police. Nick Garrison is an FBI Special Agent who is on medical leave after being injured and he’s journeyed to help the local lead investigator, Detective Remy Boudreaux, at the request of Remy’s brother, Luc, who served with Nick in the armed forces. This is the third young woman to go missing and the second body to be discovered. As the search for the serial killer continues, Remy asks his cousin Evangeline Broussard, to help. She’s a psychic and Nick doesn’t believe in anyone having genuine psychic powers so, despite the mutual attraction between them, his scepticism and antagonism cause friction between them. Can they work together to discover the murderer? Can Nick overcome his prejudices and protect Evie from becoming another of the killer’s victims?
The author brings the characters and settings to life in the pages of her book. Her evocative descriptions paint pictures in the imagination of the reader and made it easy to relate to the people and places in the story, helping the reader build connections and to feel involved in the search to discover the killer. The build up is dramatic, the plot well developed and I found it an engaging and enthralling read. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone who enjoys their romance spiced with some cajun flavours, psychic talents and a serial killer to be brought to justice. I really hope this proves to be the start of a series as I’d love to read more about Evie and her cousins in future.
I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Psychic Evangeline Broussard is certain nothing will ever induce her to work with law enforcement again –until a serial killer starts using her small bayou town as his own personal hunting ground. The powdered sugar on her beignet though is being forced to work with Special Agent pain-in-the-ass, Nick Garrison, whose cynicism toward her psychic ability is matched only by his hotter-than-a-Louisiana-summer sex appeal.
Nick’s opinion of so-called psychics is carved in stone, as well as on his heart, which puts his best friend’s little cousin squarely off limits, regardless of how much the sassy, Cajun, spitfire turns him on. But when her supposed sixth sense, and a leak in the local police department, put her in the crosshairs of the killer, she’s the only one who can save them all.
