Review: Tuesday's Child by Dale Mayer


325 Pages
Published June 22nd 2011 by Smashwords Edition

What she doesn’t exactly what he needs.

Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can’t control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she’s tapped into a killer—or rather, his victims. Each woman’s murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged, no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe her?

Detective Brandt Sutherland only trusts hard evidence, yet Sam’s visions offer clues he needs to catch a killer. The more he learns about her incredible abilities, however, the clearer it becomes that Sam’s visions have put her in the killer’s line of fire. Now Brandt must save her from something he cannot see or understand…and risk losing his heart in the process.

As danger and desire collide, passion raises the stakes in a game Sam and Brandt don’t dare lose.

This book snares you from the first chapter. Samantha is a psychic that gets pulled into the last moments of a victims brutal death by a killer that has been taking lives for years that Brandt has been searching for and never found. Sam is a character you can't help but let your heart go out to. She has nothing because she is always trying to run and never get close to people. She doesn't want anyone to know what she really is thinking that they will treat her badly. Her visions literally show on her body as the killer takes the lives of his victims and she feels like at anytime she could lose her life or sanity if she doesn't figure out who he is and help these women. In steps Detective Brandt Sutherland who is open minded to the psychic world (he has already worked with one) and before he knows it he is pulled in close to Samantha. I sat down with this book and just kept reading till it was over! Dale Mayer pulled me in with her book and I can't wait to read more. This isn't a sappy love novel, there is gruesome death, people trying to kill others, people fighting for their lives and along the way people find each others hearts connecting.
