review || NOW YOU SEE HER { blog tour } by Dale Mayer

Valley Publishing | November 24, 2015 | Paranormal/Mystery
Psychic Visions, book 8


Energy. The life force of good … and evil

And sometimes evil is stronger.

Tia spent years imprisoned in a 'special' program. When she finally escaped, she ran as far away as she could. But it wouldn't leave her alone.

Only one person can help her. Stefan. But when she contacts him for help, she gets more than she bargained for. Six weeks later, she awakens from a coma to find more problems than ever – and she's still being hunted.

Dean, moonlighting as a guard at the hospital, finds himself in an impossible situation. His belief system is stretched out of control by someone whom he can't forget ... and can't believe. Until he has no choice. With everything on the line, Tia and Dean must work together to solve the problem that has somehow – in a very unique way – entwined them both.

He hung the phone up and turned to pour a cup of coffee. And stiffened. Slowly he turned around to see an empty room. But…not an empty room.

Casually he poured a second cup and set it down on the table. “Here’s one for you, Tia.”

He felt the nervous start, the anger. “No, I don’t really see you. I hear you somewhat. I see something off from the corner of my eye. But I can’t see you.” He placed the coffee on the table.

And faced her directly. “It’s more sensing you.”

A chair was pulled back by an invisible hand, and suddenly she sat down fully visible.

He breathed a sigh of relief.

“There, that should be easier on you.”

She shot him a dirty look and tugged the coffee toward her.

He grinned. “I gather you need caffeine to start your day.”

That earned him a second dirty look, but so far she hadn’t said a word. That worked for him. He busied himself making a large omelet for breakfast and, without asking, split it in two and delivered hers on a plate with the cutlery to go with it. “Add that to the caffeine for your stomach to have something to work with.”

“I have no caffeine,” she muttered, tugging the plate closer.

He laughed and retrieved the coffee pot. He filled both cups again then sat down across from her. She was eating like she hadn’t had a decent meal in weeks. He stopped his fork halfway to his mouth. She hadn’t eaten in weeks. And that would account for the wan skeletal look to her. She really did need fattening up.

They ate in silence. He wanted her to finish before he brought up Stefan and a doctor. He suspected both wouldn’t go down well.

{ review } .

Having not read another PSYCHIC VISIONS story of Dale's, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I've read Ms. Mayer's writing, yes, but this was an entirely different realm ( pun intended) than her BROKEN...BUT MENDING series. So, like Dean, I was experiencing Tia and her abilities for the first time.

Tia was a fun individual. She played with energy to allow herself to go invisible to the naked eye, and at times it was comical to watch her do it -- especially when Dean was first charged with protecting her.

I enjoyed Ms. Mayer's writing style more in this story than previously. I loved her mix of edge-of-your-seat suspense with a touch of paranormal activity. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the former books I'd read (I did rate them all high, after all), but I certainly felt that this genre was where she showcased her ability the best. Granted, I'm working that theory off of one story, but I'm willing to say in and go into the previous books of the series to see for sure.

Tia and Dean's journey wasn't an easy one. Tia has someone after her; Dean has a rocky past. These two don't seem like the type to fall for one another, but they do so incredibly well. Throughout the story, it is proven again and again how much Tia and her energy need Dean.

I'd also like to add that I loved Tia teaching Dean about inside and outside visions -- and watching the two of them overcome some tough obstacles by using them.
