This is my second read from Ms. Vickery and I was not disappointed. I love stories involving psychics, but this story has an added twist of child kidnappings. The blurb drew me in immediately and I decided to read this book.
I've read many stories about psychics and kidnappings so I felt sure I could predict what would happen. I wasn't even close. Ms. Vickery's twist on the psychic character, Jessica Wilder, is one not used before, as far as I'm aware. And although the kidnapping scenes from our perspective would normally not appear too traumatic, the heroine's "visions" through the mist make it increasingly so. Once more, Ms. Vickery has taken a written subject we've seen before and made it wholly her own.
The detective, Jonathon Lansing, is a skeptic, but that quickly changes once he witnesses Jessica experiencing one of her visions. He's a tough guy and as sexy as they come, but the care he gave to Jessica melted my heart. I cheered at the way he defended her from those who would use her only for the things she's able to see. Jonathon redefines the definition of loving someone.
The romance is sizzling from the start and their attraction builds to a wonderful conclusion. Their first kiss surprised me and left me breathless. Ms. Vickery's writing talent in adventure scenes is rivaled by her talent for romance. This book will scramble your eggs and fry your bacon in a heartbeat! Another raving success for Ms. Vickery. I can hardly wait to see what she has in store for her next adventure.

Looking through the Mist by Rebecca J. Vickery-Review
Psychic Jessica Wilder had a breakdown during her last case with the FBI. She wanted to start her life over, but the problem was…her visions were back. And not just back, but this time they involved children being kidnapped. If only she could control them and have a normal life. She didn't welcome the visions, but she had no choice.
When Jessica walked into Detective Johnathan Lansing's office she was afraid of his reactions, and wished she didn't have to report them, but what could she do, there were children at stake this time, she couldn't turn her back on them. She couldnd't stand another mistake, or more deaths.
John Lansing was at first very skeptical of these so called visions of hers. However, when she gave pertitent information that led to actual crime scenes, he had to start believing in her. Strangely enough, he wanted to believe in her, because he was more than a little attracted to her. And before he had time to doubt her, another child had been kidnapped and she was already having visions of the villians.
Thrown together by her secrecy, they kept hot on the trail of the kidnappers. More and more the evidence mounted and Jessica was right about all of it. She was so right that by the time the FBI got in on the case, even they had to admit they couldn’t' solve it without her. Not when she could pinpoint almost every move.
Ms. Vickery brings us an engaging tale of mystery and the psychic. She weaves a clever
tale while giving us a true romance on the side. Ms. Vickery's attention to detail and
Vivid prose keeps us turning the page until the end. If you want a book that pulls you in, and keeps you hanging on to find out what will happen next, you'll have to read this
Beautiful tale of mystery with a touch of paranormal and a lot of romance and sexual tensions. This is a book to curl up by the fire and indulge yourself in. So go ahead and indulge…you won't be diappointed in Looking Through the Mist. I give Ms. Vicksery a big high 5 on this beautiful book…Thanks for the great read!
