Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Parrish revisits the eXtreme Investigations team introduced in 2010's Cold Sight, pulling readers in with a tense and gritty story that skillfully balances romance and action. Olivia Wainwright has the ability to see and hear a person's death by touching their remains. Inexplicably drawn to the site of a fire that revealed a child's skeleton, Olivia meets Savannah homicide detective Gabe Cooper, who's willing to put aside his skepticism of her psychic powers if she can help him find the child's killer. Parrish doesn't do things by halves: the chemistry is hot, the bad guy is truly evil, and the paranormal aspects are dark and haunting. Her full commitment to both romance and suspense heightens the impact and sweeps the reader along the twisty path to a satisfying climax. (July)

    A Must Read!

    I've loved Leslie Parrish's books since I read Fade to Black, the first book in her Black CATs series. I loved the Black CATs books and have said repeatedly I want more. I also love her Extrasensory Agents books and loved Cold Sight, the first book in the series. That being said, I really think Cold Touch is my favorite Leslie Parrish book ever.

    I loved both of the main characters so much. Olivia's "gift" give me chills. I can't imagine willingly touching a dead body to experience the last 2 minutes and 10 seconds of that person's life to see how they died. Gabe is so protective of everyone around him. He and Olivia are attracted to one another from their very first meeting. Once Gabe realized he had real feelings for Olivia, his protection mode went into overdrive.

    I also loved Gabe's partner Ty and Olivia's co-workers and her sister. In fact, I would love to see some of the secondary characters get books in the future. I don't want to post any spoilers about this book. I can only say I felt so many different emotions as I read this story. I cheered Olivia and Gabe on from the very beginning. I laughed out loud a few times, and cried like a baby at other times. I really thought I had the bad guy figured out with about 100 pages left, but was off the mark. I love that Leslie kept me guessing and I still had to wait for the reveal.

    Cold Touch is one of the best books I've read all year. It is filled with suspense, action, and romance. I personally and hoping and praying we get more books from Leslie Parrish in the future!

    Disappointed!

    Loved the first book in this series...was extremely disappointed with this one. Way, WAY, too much internal monologues...did I say way, cause I meant WAYYY TOO MUCH! Not enough dialogue between the main characters, instead the author chose to write pages upon pages of what the character was thinking to him or herself. It got really old, really fast! Had to force myself to finish this book.

    I Also Recommend:

    Steamy and haunting, romantic suspense with a paranormal touch

    First let me say that I like paranormal books, but for all those romance and romantic/suspense readers who shy away from anything that has the slightest mention of the paranormal about it, that would be a shame in the case of Leslie Parrish's Extrasensory Agent series. I somehow missed out on the first book (Cold Sight), but as soon as I finished the prologue of Cold Touch and got a feel for what was coming, I ordered it. And as there was only a paragraphic mention of what may have happened in the first book, just do what I did and skip that paragraph so it won't be spoiled if you, too, read them out of order.

    It's steamy hot in Savannah...and I'm not just talking about the summer weather. When Olivia Wainwright is saved from possible vehicular death by a quick-moving cop, he leaves a lasting impression...and not just because of the life-saving bit. See, Olivia has already died and come back once during a fatal kidnap/ransom scheme when she was fifteen; she was saved then by a young boy whom she suspected was also a kidnap victim, a long-term one. She has searched for him ever since, but feared the worst. When she hears that the skeleton of a young boy was recovered from a burned building not far from the site of her ordeal, she fears the worst and involves herself in the case. Because Olivia wasn't just revived from her drowning by the young boy, she came back with a gift more along the lines of a curse. With her touch, she can share a victim's last moments of life which sometimes helps solve their murders. Gabe Cooper is a no-nonsense detective, born on the wrong side of the tracks and the blanket; and not only does he have nothing in common with the privileged Olivia, he doesn't believe in any sort of woo-woo goings-on...unless it's on screen in a Harry Potter flick.

    But the murder of a child pulls Gabe and his rookie partner, Ty, into connection with Olivia and her colleages at eXtreme Investigations when the cold case discovery of the unidentified child's skeleton seems to be linked with the disappearances of other boys over the years. Woo-woo might come in handy when you're working cases as cold as the corpses.

    Olivia and Gabe's growing relationship develops quickly as they plunge deeper into the case, and Parrish handles the mix of romance and suspense well all without going overboard on the paranormal. The psychic gifts of Olivia's fellow workers are described briefly and I assume each will get their own book...hopefully.

    If you like Kay Hooper's Bishop books, you'll enjoy these.

    The second Extrasensory Agents romantic suspense (see Cold Sight) is a great thriller

    Twelve years ago, tweener Jack informs fifteen year old Olivia Wainwright the man was going to kill her after he receives the ransom from her parents. He drowns her, but, Jack who condemned her to die brought her back to life. Her return to the living gave her a unique skill of seeing and hearing the death of people she touches.

    Following an arson burning down Fast Eddie's Savannah bar, bones are found in a wall. Now an eXtreme Investigator Olivia realizes this is the remains of the young Jack who saved her life from a psychopath who she believes kidnapped both of them. One touch and she will see the lunatic. Skeptical Homicide Detective Gabe Cooper wants the killer of the child found so he takes a chance on Olivia's alleged paranormal abilities. However, as he begins to fall in love with her and knows other kids are at risk, the cop fears for the psychic's life from this insane predator and from her emotional turmoil that is driving her over the edge.

    The second Extrasensory Agents romantic suspense (see Cold Sight) is a great thriller that hooks the reader from the onset with the Olivia abduction and never slows down until the final confrontation. The romance is cleverly used to enhance the emotional turmoil of the lead couple while the super investigation remains the prime focus of the story line. With stunning twists, strong lead couple and a predatory psychopath, readers will enjoy Leslie Parrish's powerful paranormal police procedural.

    Loved Cold Touch and the extra sensory agents!

    I was lucky enough to win an ARC from the Plotmonkey's Website. I am not a huge fan of paranormal romance but this book kept me interested and turning the page.
    I loved Olivia. I could feel her emotions flowing off each page. What she went through as a child and what her powers put her through, you couldn't help but live her emotions with her. Gabe was such great hero. He had such a horrible past, so similar to what "Jack" went through, I just wish we could have explored that a little more. The only down side was I wish the ending wasn't so quick. The sub-characters were great as well and how they supported the main characters through this horrible situation, made me fall in love with each of them. I really hope many of them get their own stories.
