Review: The Touch by Lisa Olsen

Paperback, 264 pages
Published July 7th 2011 by Createspace 


Lexi Morgan has always had The Touch; the ability to pick up an object and 'see' its past. Doomed to wearing protective gloves at all times, she learned to accept it as equal parts gift and curse. When her brother in law Neil disappears, she'd rather tell her sister to celebrate than try to help find the jerk. But after her young niece vanishes as well, it's time to put her gift to good use and help track her down, especially when handsome Detective Gabriel Ryan takes over the case. When the investigation leads them to the restless spirits of long dead children, they must work together to keep history from repeating itself before it's too late

 You simply have everything you need in this book. There is mystery, romance, murder, ghosts and a woman that has the ability to touch objects and see the person that last touched them, what they were doing and how they were feeling. There is witty banter from the lead character Lexi, whom I loved from the start. As I read this book I could literally 'see' the story and all the characters. I loved the twists in this book and how it held your attention continuously. This was a good read and well worth my time
