Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.

I freakin' LOVE this book!! I mean, seriously LOVE it!! This was definitely one of those stay-up-all-night-to-finish-it books and it was worth every second of lost sleep! The mystery and tension had me hooked from the very beginning. Charlie had lost a good part of her memory so she didn't have a clue what was going on: the reader gets to live that right along with her. But even though I had no clue what was going on, I was fully absorbed and loving it! There are so many anxiety-filled moments where she is just right on the verge of remembering something that it almost drove me insane waiting for it to all come together! But through all that heartbreaking suspense there was this wonderful distraction named Draven. Just reading about him gives me goosebumps - he is perfect beyond words. I love their interaction as she tries to remember if she knew him before and if she should get to know him now. I will definitely have no problem remembering him - I can't get him outta my head!
