    I thoroughly enjoyed Loving the Rain, the first book in this mystery series. I actually had already read the last book, Bulletproof, and liked it so much I had to find out how it all started. Clay and Tanner are wonderful characters that I was instantly taken with. Clay has had to learn to live with the powers he believes are both a gift and a curse. Tanner has only begun to discover what he can do. Now they’re both dealing with a menacing man set out to seek revenge on Clay and make the whole family suffer. I thought the mind control part of the story was very unique and kept the story interesting. There were also a few surprises I didn’t see coming. Give this series a shot if you enjoy mystery and suspense with cool fantasy aspect.

    Here’s a book that took me by complete surprise. When the author told me it had a lot of sports in it, I wasn’t too keen to read it, but because I’ve read the other two books in the Clay and Tanner Thomas series, I was curious to see where it all started. As with “Skeleton Key” and “Bulletproof”, the second and third books in this series, “Loving the Rain” also turned out to be an exceptional read!

    Written with what I’ve come to recognize as the author’s signature tongue-in-cheek humor and an insightfulness into the human character, Jeff LaFerney not only explores the upside of what it is like to have parapsychological powers and the power to manipulate minds; but also the consequences of what happens when good people use those powers irresponsibly, no matter how well intended. Of course, no mystery novel is complete without a vengeful villain, and Jack Harding is no exception. His character adds new dimension to the term “bad guy”.

    This being the author’s first novel, I’m adequately impressed by his impeccable writing which enticed and engaged me from the very start of the book. Solid characters, gripping dialogue, a surprise tearjerker ending, and a unique plot which keeps the reader guessing and in suspense until the very last page, makes “Loving the Rain” a memorable book.

    To sum it all up in one sentence - Jeff LaFerney’s writing is an absolute joy to read, and this book deserves a rating of ten stars!
