Ok, here is the deal. I liked Mortal Touch pretty well with the mystery and all the crazy that happened. Well I did until the last half of the book. It seemed like the last part of the book every single thing was explained to death and that about ruined the book for me. I lost interest and found myself skipping over paragraphs. Conversations lasted way longer than necessary. It seemed the author was trying too hard to cover all her bases so no questions would rise up from the reader later on. But really…does the reader need to hear of a story of someone’s youth to justify how they got the sprinklers to go off in a restaurant?
The book was a little long for me too (400 plus pages). Mortal Touch easily could have been 2 books with all the plots running through the story. Sometimes I would forget about certain plots only to be reminded of them later on. I was ‘oh yeah, I forgot about you’. And of course more explaining would commence.
And my last fault I found was the relationship between Jonathan and Regan. I didn’t connect with them and everything about them seemed, well it seemed eh. Just when I thought the author was going to bring them to a level of being more personal…it went flat. The romance was ok, but almost nonexistent. And I understand that maybe the author wanted it to be more of a mystery read instead of a romance. But if that is the case…just leave the romance out altogether. I felt no spark for them. Nada.
So there you have it. I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys vampires and a good mystery. And you know what they say…no one reads the same book.

In 2004 in Sheridan, Massachusetts psychic Regan Calloway owns a quaint shop while hiding from her gift. Several years ago she helped law enforcement catch killers by using her ability to see things by touching objects held by a murderer or a victim, but the cost to her mind was too great for her to cope with. <BR/><BR/>Her friend Dr. Hiram Clauson, who worked with her when she lent a hand to the cops several years ago, asks for her help as there has been a serial attacker who leaves victims with scars on their necks, a major loss of blood, and no memory of an assault. Regan reluctantly agrees to assist with the investigation. As she begins to touch objects to try to fathom what the victims can no longer remember, writer Jonathan Vaughn moves into Sheridan; Regan¿s best friend Veronica Standish seems attracted to the reclusive author. When Regan meets Jonathan, her touch of him reveals to her his connection to the unsolved mysterious assaults and much more as if he has lived for centuries and something illogical about blood. As the psychic and the vampire become attracted to one another, Veronica begins to lose her mind turning dangerous and suicidal.<BR/><BR/>This is an intriguing paranormal investigative thriller with a touch of romance that grips the audience from the moment Dr. Clausen asks a reluctant Regan to use her psychic skills on the strange case he works. Thus the readers meet the heroine, immediately after the call her flighty best friend and soon afterward the vampire-author. The small New England town is a Frisbee toss away from Rhode Island, making a perfect atmosphere for this engaging supernatural mystery in which Regan suspects the man she is attracted to is the neck biter. Although the font size is tough on the eyes, Inanna Arthen provides an interesting Vampires of New England tale as the lead pair must make difficult even perilous choices that endanger them, loved ones, and semi-innocent.<BR/><BR/>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
