Moving to Sedona was the only way Ivy could think of to start over. She would meet her high school sweetheart and work on making things right between them. Her psychic abilities were gradually becoming a curse and she needed a new start. Little does she know that when she applies for a waitressing job at a local, upscale French bistro, she will come in contact with the dark and mysterious Eli Dubois. What she doesn’t realize is she has just walked into the middle of the Vortex Murders, which involve a great deal of paranormal activity. Elijah’s army of seers are being murdered, one by one, which seems to be magnifying Ivy’s special abilities.
Eli's best friend, Jake, arrives on the scene and reveals the secret that changes everything. With nowhere to turn, Ivy leans on the two men who offer her solace. And who is the old woman in the shroud? Is she a vision, a dream, or is she real? Only time will tell.

Ivy Vines: Vision sounded interesting enough that I figured it would be a fun and easy read. It was somewhat of a change from the books I had been reviewing lately, so I was eager to see what happened. What I Liked: I'm going to keep this entire review very brief. I did not read the entire book, an explanation can be found in the section about what I didn't like, but the portion that I read was decently written. I cannot think of anything negative to say. It was simple, straightforward, and easy to read. The characters seemed like they could be interesting, and there was no time wasted before getting into the plot. What I Didn't Like: I did not read very far, however, because it is made clear early in the book that the main character is being hunted or attacked because the devil thought she knew when Jesus would return. As a Christian, I am always leery of supernatural fiction. I do not believe it is inherently evil as some people do, but it can take a dangerous turn very quickly if the author chooses to address the topic of religion. I do not take that sort of thing lightly. It was the reason I did not finish the Fallen series, and it is the reason I did not finish Ivy Vines: Vision. Overall: From what I read, the book seemed pretty decent, but it was not for me for a very specific reason. If that would not bother you, by all means, read it. Rating: 2/5 Stars
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this ebook for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own. I enjoy a good paranormal thriller, and Ivy Vines didn’t disappoint. I became engaged in the storyline right away. Ivy finds out at age 13 that she has paranormal powers and her life is a mess because of them. She moves away from her home town as a young adult to try to have a normal life. She’s not alone, she moves close to her highschool sweetheart, Michael, and her best friend, Simone. She and Michael try to rekindle their romance, but a secret is revealed that makes that too hard to handle. Besides, Ivy’s life take a turn to the weird, anyway, as she meets Eli who forces her to face a reality that changes her life forever. Will Ivy survive this new life? Pick up the book to find out. You will not be disappointed!
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Ivy Vines was just your typical kid; at least she was until her thirteenth birthday. Her friend Gina brought over an Ouija board for their group of friends to play with. After their first experience, Gina reaches the revelation that Ivy has a sixth sense, and as they continue to play, all hell breaks loose…literally! Now, its several years later and Ivy is ready for a fresh. She moves to Sedona to live with her best friend Simone, and rekindle her romance with ex-boyfriend Michael. Unfortunately things aren’t what they seem, and Ivy’s sixth sense has been reawakened. Will she be able to survive this nightmare? Who is this old woman that keeps appearing to her? What can I say about this book? I was completely engrossed from the very beginning. I loved the fact that this paranormal romance was unique in the storyline. There’s witches, demons, seers, shape shifters and of course the devil himself. The story flowed wonderfully, and I was at the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. There’s lots of romance, including a love triangle. This was a great action packed novel, and I’m eagerly anticipating book two, I can’t wait to see what happens next!
