Sometimes the first installment of a series devotes too much time to establishing the characters and not enough on the current story. Bet you can’t … has a different problem, setting the storytelling bar so high that it will be a challenge to beat it next time out.

Meet the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author living in Lexington, Kentucky. I have always had a penchant for things a little outside the norm. I saw my first “ghost” when I was five years old, and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to understand that vision. Was it real? And if it was, why? I became a paranormal investigator and love old houses that go bump in the night. I can often be found in old cemeteries just hanging out.
I’ve studied metaphysics, including the areas of touch healing, dream analysis, meditation and hypnosis. The power of the mind has always fascinated me. When reading I love books that allow me to travel around the world without ever leaving home. As an author my greatest desire is to create characters that readers can love and hate, laugh and cry with, and stories that allow the reader to spend a few hours in sheer entertainment.
The Jacody Ives series was my first attempt to combine my love of true mystery and the paranormal. The Catherine Mans’ series continues and expands that combination, delving into the darker side of the power of the mind.

    This is one of those books that will keep you up way past your bedtime. It's a first-rate, page-turning thriller with a twisty, complex plot, interesting characters, AND intriguing themes. This book held me enthralled until the very last page. I highly recommend it.

    After reading and thoroughly enjoying Linda's other two novels The Gifts, A Jacody Ives Mystery (Jacody Ives Mysteries) and Sacred Secrets, A Jacody Ives Mystery (Jacody Ives Mysteries), I begged her to let me read and review her latest, Bet you can't... Find Me before it was released.
    This novel is an intricately woven mystery that centres around psychic investigator Catherine Mans.
    Catherine is often asked to assist in investigating current crimes by Sgt Cody Allen. Their most recent case turns out to have links to Catherine's sad childhood, a childhood that has caused much confusion to her over the years.
    When strange circumstances start to affect Catherine's psychic abilities, and the body count rises, FBI special agent Brian Wilkes starts to suspect Catherine's role in the case.
    Will she be able to seek out the answers she needs to crack this bizarre case or will she be arrested as the main suspect?

    Urban Dictionary defines psyched: to be excited or pumped up about something. Bet You Can't Find Me has me psyched. Heroine, Catherine Man - a gentle lady - is reluctant to use her psychic powers until everyone she cares about is marked for death. Take a group of people who come together hiding agendas good and evil, discover their human frailties, burnish their strengths, and then put them on a collision course. This is a real white-knuckler. Highly Recommended.

    I couldn't help but roll my eyes through this book.
    I bought the book because it sounded like an interesting plot with potentially interesting characters. What I got was a book that seems like a quick first draft, an outline—there are no fleshed out characters (I don't care for them, nor their fate in the end), the plot has too many holes and is filled with convenient happenstances, mainly revolving around the psychic’s abilities; to me it felt like a convenient way for the author to explain stuff.
    I had to read the prologue twice just to (kind of) understand what was going on as there wasn’t much description of setting or people; it was almost as if the author left out the key parts to “keep the reader guessing.” Also, if you’re using foreign language, it’s supposed to be italicized. Having to flip to the back of a book, especially on an ebook, is really distracting. It takes you out of the story in a bad way.
    There were chapters that should have been unfolding from the protagonist’s POV but were instead written from the POV of secondary characters to conceal plot development. And when important things, BIG plot things, were going to happen to the main character (or the main character was going to make a big decision), the author switched to a secondary character’s POV, preventing the reader from being “with” the main character during these critical moments. As a reader I felt cheated and as a writer, I was horrified. I would never switch from my main characters POV at critical scenes just to “keep secret” what the main character was planning to do.
    I was grateful this was such a short book. The author skipped out of Catherine’s POV in those moments when readers should want to be with her most—for example, when she leaves the others at the hotel in New Orleans, or when she goes down the ‘rebirth tunnel’ or whatever it was called. Instead, we get summarized paragraphs/different POV scenes of what happened or retrospective conversations of the things she had seen in the tunnel. I would have rather been with Catherine, feeling/seeing those memories rather than being told about them later—again, I felt very cheated!
    And Rosetta? Wow… not original at all (the author even mentions Garcia from Criminal Minds). I got sick of the cookie bit real quick. And towards the end when she’s left the two people who could possibly protect her, when she knows that they believe her employer could be a killer looking for her, she giggles and wants to sing Girls Just Want to Have Fun? What? Really? That’s absurd if you ask me.
    I don’t know how much, if any, research was done on the FBI and Police protocols and rules/regulations, but I found it all very unbelievable. I found most of the dialogue boring and clichéd and when the FBI agent and the cop wanted to beat each other up, the one guy gets in a single slug and then they decide to eat steak and drink beer? “WHAT?” I shouted this at the gym, eliciting a few odd glances and snickers.
    I found this book so full of clichés I started expecting them, even guessing them, playing psychic myself. It was peppered with cheesy flirting and unbelievable relationships and predictable plot twists. Had the author taken a bit more time to flesh out the characters, giving them a background, a history, a sense of life before this, and had she stayed with the character of Catherine through the whole book instead of switching up POV so often to secondary characters to keep the reader “guessing,” it could have been better.

    For a story that's only 164 pages I LOVED IT!!!

    Surprisingly hooked me and I couldn't put it down. I never thought it could be wrapped up in so few pages but it did with satisfaction. I'd like a movie or book series.

    Voodoo thriller

    This is a good quick read. The characters are well developed and the pace is fast. If you like books about murder, mystery and the human mind and spirit you will enjoy this one.

    Strange...

    One of the strangest books I've ever read. Started off okay, but became increasingly more unbelievable as I read on. I wouldn't recommend wasting your time on this one.

    GOOD READ!

    This book was a pretty good afternoon read. I love a good paranoral story, and this was pretty exciting and the author does a good job keeping the storyline moving all the time.

    Without giving a review that simply repeats what I can get on the synopsis when I buy a book, I will say that the ending was a bit on the cheesy side. That being said, I did enjoy this book. I would actually like to give it 3-1/2 stars, but I can't give 1/2 stars here, hence an overall rating that is a little lower than I wanted to give.

    Catherine Mans is a psychic making a living as a consultant work

    Catherine Mans is a psychic making a living as a consultant working with the police when needed and doing insurance jobs, mostly arson cases. The jobs pay the bills and the salary of her assistant/best friend Rosetta Tosallina and she lives a comfortable if lonely life. Until another psychic sets her up as a serial killer, taunts her psychically to ‘Find me.’ and proceeds to destroy everything she loves. Catherine has to find the killer before the killer finishes the job, but in tracking the killer she finds out things about her past she doesn’t remember. Strap yourself in, it’s going to be a high-speed chase.
    A most excellent mystery! I was on the edge of my seat, metaphorically speaking since I was actually kicked back in my office chair with my feet propped up on my desk. The twisty turny plot progressed smoothly and quickly with no dilly dallying around. The characters were interesting and well-developed. I didn’t want to put it down and my peek factor was very high. However, like humans have told the Borg since they met, ‘Resistance is NOT futile!’ and I managed (just barely) to avoid peeking at the end to see who the killer was.

    I love the fact the story concluded, but an opening was left for more to come. Bring it on! I’m ready!
