About the Author

Eden Laroux was born on November 27, 1978, in New Orleans, Louisiana, to a father who was a butcher and a mother who was a florist.
Her mother, originally from Saint-Emilion in France, migrated to the US to become a textile worker.
Eden Laroux was born as Emilia Domini. She had an elder brother, Calvin, and has a sister named Philomena.
Her father, a second-generation Italian immigrant, left Emilia’s mother for a laundrywoman, who was also of Italian descent. He was a gambler and an alcoholic. It was learned later that he not only stole money from his employer, but also left the family with gambling debts to settle.
Eden was 14 at the time, and the experience of being abandoned and deceived seared into her memory – a theme which showed up in most of her early literary works – sad poems and essays--and in her college years, short stories for various creative writing classes.
Eden's brother Calvin chose to leave his own studies and worked odd jobs to supplement their mother’s income, which was obscenely meager, after their father left.
Despite financial difficulties, Calvin pushed Eden to work for a degree, and through his and other people’s help, she was able to get a scholarship to attend college and study English Literature.
Three weeks after Eden's graduation, Calvin - a closeted homosexual - was killed in a freak accident at work (stabbed by his partner in the middle of a long drive for an out-of-town furniture delivery). He had “come out” only to Eden. He and Eden had been very close, owing to their father’s leaving and their mother becoming undone and distraught.
Philomena, Eden's younger sister, is the family’s joy and the family’s artist. While her formal training is in business (she is currently studying for a degree in finance and strategic management), she nevertheless finds time to also dabble in the visual arts – as a potter, painter, and, of late, as a furniture designer.
Emilia chose to write under her mother’s name, Eden, as a tribute both to her mother's unconditional love and for her strength to overcome an enormous challenge of raising a family – all on her own.

A tautly paced thriller that manages to combine several different genre elements into a very rewarding experience: detective story, psychic thriller with some good old-fashioned spooky horror elements, and sexy romance (featuring some great, and vividly detailed, sexual chemistry). The story moves along nicely with some fun twists and turns, and the main characters are nicely developed. A real page-turner.

I hate it when it's just a trick. This is just a start of a story, it just leaves you hanging. Not even that good either.

It was okay, but it's really just a preview, so be warned.

The book was very short. What was written was great and keeps your attention but in my opinion the plot was just beginning, gets you hooked on the book, then it is to be continued. You are left hanging and in order to find out if Lianna is still alive you need to purchase the next book. Got my attention.

Started good but it went nowhere

When January loses her best friend, she discovers that she has the power to see and speak to the dead. She then makes a career out of it. But then the FBI come to her with a case very similar to when her best friend disappeared.  I liked the story but it ended too soon. Guess I'll have to buy the next book in the series to find out if the disappearances are connected.

Thought it was good new spin on a old story. Great main character, likeable. Can not wait to read the rest of the series.

Total pages: 105...Story pages: 74 WORTH READING... A girl who can see & speak to the dead. She chooses to be a medium (as her career) when she gets older. She helps find missing people. This one was very good. Even though it ended abruptly (story wasn't finished yet), I will be getting the gull book or series so I can find out what happens. Forewarning: this is not a complete story. It stops at chapter 10 and says "TO BE CONTINUED".

Usually I'm weary of thriller meets erotica it forms a gruesome image in my mind, unless of course it is written by Sandra Ross. In Come Find Me Ross has done a wonderful job of mixing the two together without taking away from either aspect, a feat very few writers could preform. This book is thick with plot and heavy with sexual tension. The description does not pay the book the respect it deserves. A reluctant psychic who sees dead people has been vastly overdone, well that was until this writer got a hold of the concept. Sandra Ross takes everyone expectations for this plot and blows them away. This book isn't full of cliches or overdone story lines. It takes the old and brings it back to life in a very unique way. This book is a complex story that will touch the readers heart and imagination. You'll fall in love, by mystified, and of course scared out of your mind at some points. Sandra Ross is one of the few writers brave enough to try it and the result is a master piece. If you like Sandra Ross's other books, you're sure to love this one. January is the reluctance psychic that see's dead people. January has helped the authorities with solving murder cases before but this one is different than the rest. This time when the victim answers her, she is still alive. This case takes January on a violent and sorrowful stroll down memory lane of the first case she ever helped solve: The murder of her best friend. January is determined to save the living woman who she can communicate with. She feels obliged to do so in honor of her dead best friend. While assisting the FBI with the case January meets Ashton Sterling, the detective in charge of the case and sparks fly immediately. January is thrilled to have finally met a man who can appreciate her for all she is, psychic weirdness included. The book explores not only the case but also the steamy romance between the two.

Complete rip off. After a few chapters it says to be continued!
