    Another great story in The Gemini Women trilogy by Lj Charles.

    Another great story in The Gemini Women trilogy by Lj Charles. I love it, Love it, Love it!

    Whitney Boulay has received her calling, and it isn't was she hoped, instead of clairvoyance like her grandmother, she hears the dead. Those who have been murdered clamber for her to find their killer and return their bodies to their families. It wouldn't be so bad if they would listen to her or give her a moments piece, and maybe in time it she will get there, but she has so much to learn and not enough time to learn it.

    FBI agent Blake Evans is the perfect person to deliver her newest information to if she can get it to him without seeing him, or touching him, or kissing him. She just isn't ready to accept what that man does to her, and she knows there is not way he will accept her gift. Unfortunately avoiding him is another thing she doesn't have time for when someone she loves is endangered and the danger is tied to the murderer!

    I first read this book a couple of years ago, but I just reread it in preparation for reading The Healing. At that time I wasn't reviewing books and Iwant to share this outstanding series with any who might give it a chance. I love romance, suspense, and light paranormal and this trilogy wraps them together beautifully.

    A rare gem!

    The Calling features retired police officer Whitney and FBI agent Blake following clues as to who kidnapped Whitney's beloved Grandmamma. If that isn't bad enough, Whitney is just learning to accept and `control' the dead people who talk to her.

    The heat-filled romance between Blake (yum!) and Whitney keep the reader on edge...just like the characters. L.J. Charles has done a wonderful job developing a `Hepburn and Tracy' vibe between the hero and heroine in this story.

    Their search for Grandmamma takes the pair from the bayou country in New Orleans to Hawaii and then England. This intriguing, globe-trotting story is a rare gem.

    An Exciting Read!

    The second book in a series by a great new author. She just keeps getting better and better. The perfect mix of excitement, mystery and romance, and set in beautiful Hawaii. Can't wait for number three!

    Just keeps getting better

    I was in love with the first book in the series, The Knowing, already before picking this one up. Somehow, though, the series just keeps getting better. The sexual tension between Whitney and Blake was palpable, and the suspense is unbeatable. I can't wait to read the final book in the series!
