~Book Review and Giveaway: Touching Evil~

With one touch, Leila can see it all.

Leila Marx is trying to put her life back together after her fiancé is murdered. When Detective Garrick Pearson enlists her help with a difficult case, she is thankful for the distraction and the opportunity to use her talents as a touch clairvoyant. Leila and Garrick delve into the mystery behind a series of missing teenage girls and mummified corpses while discovering their own growing attraction to each other.

Conner Hoffman is an intriguing lawyer and striking half-demon who enters Leila’s life unexpectedly. Although her visions are terrifying, she is fascinated by his charm and his legacy. When it becomes evident that the murders are linked to a paranormal event, Conner introduces Leila to a world unbeknownst to ordinary society. She suddenly finds herself immersed in supernatural politics, sorcery, and danger as she becomes the killer’s next target.

Staying alive will mean relying on friends, accepting the unbelievable, and trusting in her heart again.

Leila Marx is slowly putting her life back together after the death of her fiance.  Leila is a clairvoyant and she spends her days illustrating children's books and doing some off the books work for the local police department.  Detective Derrick Pearson is investigating her fiance murder and in the process getting closer to Leila.  Sometimes Leila can "see" things just by touching a person or an object and Detective Garrick needs her help in a new case involving the disappearance of young girls.  How will they deal with their growing feelings toward each other?  Enter the fabulous and gorgeous Conner Hoffman who is also attracted to Leila.  With two men attracted to her, she finds herself in a love triangle.  One man is hiding a secret that will surprise and shock her.  When Leila learns that she may be the next target, she has to rely on the help of faes, werewolves, mediums, sorcerers, and a cambion in order to find the killer.

This is a very good paranormal mystery book.  I have been wanting to read this for some time and am happy I got the chance to participate in the blog tour.  There are so many strorylines that develop within the pages of this book.  From the death of Leila's fiance to the killer it is full of twist and surprises.  I loved the relationship development between Leila and Garrick and would like to see more between them.  What a wonderful first book in an exciting new series.  I look forward to reading many more books by Amber Garr.  I recommend this book for all.
