It was a good book and i look forward to reading the next one. Some of the story line doesn't make sense. It just doesn't fit what people would do. But small inconsist events. But overall a good book.

Everyone in this story seems to do a lot of sweating. And angry yelling.

Poorly written. Time line jumps all over the place. Very disjointed. It got slightly better as it went on. Would not recommend to anyone. Deb in NH

Gypsy Hunted is the first novel by Australian author, Andrea Drew, and is the first book in the Gypsy Medium series. After ten long months alone, Gypsy Shields meets a new man, Connor Reardon, at a restaurant dinner with friends. This Police detective seems like a nice guy and she wonders if possibly there could be something between them. At the end of the evening, her walk home is interrupted by the sensation that someone is in trouble. All her life, Gypsy has had telepathic powers, whether or not she wanted them, and she is unable to ignore a call for help: she enters a dark alley, tries to prevent an abduction and wakes up in hospital, half-paralysed and unable to speak. As she recovers, she learns about the victim of the abduction, and is determined to see justice done and the offender apprehended. She hopes she can rely on Detective Constable Connor Reardon to do his job, but also involves her telepathic niece, Renee, and her somewhat estranged sister, Renee's mother Leah, in her scheme. But does Gypsy realise the danger that stalks her? Connor soon finds that he has a more personal involvement in the case than just his concern for the lovely Gypsy, and finds himself juggling duty with family loyalty. Drew gives the reader a fast-paced thriller filled with suspense and intrigue, a bit of corruption, plenty of twists and turns, and a heart-thumping climax. Readers should be prepared for some violence and torture. Drew's characters are multi-faceted and believable, although there is, maybe, a slight excess of broken relationships and troubled pasts. Gypsy is an interesting and different individual of whom readers will want to see more and luckily the e-version also includes a preview of the second novel in the series, Gypsy Cradle. The dialogue is generally natural and convincing. The descriptive prose is, perhaps, a little too replete with what seem like thesaurus-derived alternative verbs and occasionally superfluous adverbs and adjectives: characters quite often clomp, stomp, shuffle, saunter, murmur, or mutter, when they could walk, go, or say; not every verb or noun needs to be qualified; not every single appearance or minor character needs to be fully described. Sometimes these things distract from the action and make it feel like Drew is trying too hard. Nonetheless, this is an excellent debut novel and readers will look forward to the next book in the series and also the prequel, Gypsy Life.

I really liked this except for the author saying she was using American English. We can still tell, this book is dark. I liked Gypsy she is a strong character.

I am going to start off by saying that I struggled with this review. There was so much that I liked about the story, but I had some big issues with it as well. It left me conflicted as to a rating.  When we first meet Gypsy, she is on her way to dinner with some friends.  She knows that she is being set up, and although she's not sure she is ready to start dating again, decides to go ahead. Her last relationship lasted several years and left her with some issues.  The impression I got was that she had some OCD challenges, and certain things were hard for her to do or deal with. Based on the character later in the book, either I missed a turning point, or misunderstood her. Both of these Gypsys were interesting and read very well, they just didn't match up in my head.  My biggest issue is with the timeline.  When Gypsy is run down and ends up in the hospital, things seem to speed up dramatically.  I was left with the impression that she went from completely paralyzed on one side to walking, talking and kicking butt in a matter of a few days. It felt like there should have been a longer time frame here. A lot is happening with the story, multiple POVs are shown as we are guided through all the events that are happening concurrently and intersecting with each other. Don't get me wrong, these individual elements and pieces added together to make an interesting tale. It was just the one piece that kept throwing me out - her miraculous recovery with no real explanation.  So, although I have these issues, the story stayed with me and kept me thinking about it. And that has to count for something. Plus Gypsy and Connor really don't have that much face time together in the book.  There is a lot of each of them thinking about the other person, so I am interested to see where their relationship will go in the next book. Warning, this is not an HEA book, their story will continue in Gypsy Cradle. For a first book in the series, it did the things it was supposed to: catch my interest, and set me up to want the next book. Mission accomplished: sounds like a 3 star read to me.

Some parts ran into eachother. Not sure how the time line worked. To many issues went on and got resolved too fast. It was a good read though.

And, to be honest, I'm not very motivated to start the second. There was an entire chapter to get me to at least START liking a character, but that never happened. I also had a hard time liking the description of, well, anything. Perhaps I should give it another try, but there are other books I'd rather chance. Two stars cuz I feel guilty giving it only one since I haven't finished reading it, but seriously...first chapter is everything.

There is no reason to give this book less than 5 stars. Plenty of action, witty dialogue, great story with a very enticing element of paranormal abilities that some of the characters exhibit. I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. I was drawn in by the description and that triggered a trail of thoughts and wishful thinking - I always wanted to be able to communicate telepathically. The story has many unexpected twists - it seems that the author placed the characters in a big net of inter-connectivity. Main characters are sucked into a vortex of intrigue and deceit. They are well developed and outspoken. The love story however was unnecessary - there must be a book once in a while where a romantic parallel is not developed. The way the blind date unravels and the events that follow - that was a great idea; how stories interconnect and develop as a single plot. It is easy to be on good terms with the main characters such as Aaron despite all the negativity he brings to the tone of the book. It is also rewarding to see how Gypsy and her sister Leah are struggling to get along - for Renee's sake. Gypsy develops as a character and we see it through masterfully written passages, traveling back to the past. She leaves behind her careless and selfish behaviour. Connor's story is more dramatic. However it is not as easy to sympathize with his personality as there is nothing "natural" about ending up in bed with one's sister in law. He does bring value to the book later on, nevertheless. I would recommend this book to all avid readers of the genre as it is very unusually engaging and gripping.

This is the first book I have read by Andrea Drew and I can say that I really enjoyed it. I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. The writing style is very gripping and pleasant spiced up with short descriptions meant to make you imagine what each person is feeling or how the surroundings look like. It's the type of book that once you start reading you cannot stop and want to see what happens next. I think making a movie after this book would be a great success. The main plot of the story is very interesting and the book is full of twists, action, funny moments, a bit of paranormal and a lot more. Gypsy, the main character witnesses a kidnapping and tries to help. From here on she gets caught up in quite a complicated story with a lot of unknowns. I liked how the author slowly revealed a bit from the past of each character thus making you empathize more with each one. Each person has a past which brought them to the person they are in the present. The more you read about each one the more you understand. Only at Connor's life and family connections I got a bit lost and had to re read some parts to clear up who is who. I love Renne, her personality and abilities make her my favorite character from the book. I have to mention that I did have sometimes the feeling that she thinks more like an adult than like a thirteen years old. Highly recommended! It's a brilliant book with a great and interesting complex plot; full of action, friendship, extraordinary skills, family ties, secrets and much more...
