Mind Games (Cassie Scot Book 3) 


6-12-2014 9-42-31 PMBeware your heart and soul… 

Evan broke Cassie’s heart two months ago, and she still doesn’t know why. She throws herself into family, friends and her new job at the sheriff’s department, but nothing helps. The only thing that finally allows her heal and move on is the love of a new man, mind mage Matthew Blair. Cassie finds him…irresistible. 

Matthew may also be the only one who can help keep the non-magical residents of Eagle Rock from going crazy over the murder of a beloved pastor’s wife. It looks like a sorcerer is to blame, but while Cassie tries to figure out who, others take matters into their own hands. With tensions running so hot, a single spark might set Eagle Rock ablaze.



I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

I really like the  Cassie Scot series. Each book stands on its own but the series is even better if you read the books in order.

There is a lot going on in Mind Games. Once again, Cassie has a lot to deal with. There is a murder to solve even though the victim was an evil sorcerer and most people don’t care who murdered him. There is also a lot of hate in the town between Gateway Christian Church members and those who are magical and it is boiling over.

On a personal level, Cassie is dating Matthew, who can read her mind. Evan, of course, is always in the picture. Both of Cassie’s roommates have isolated themselves and she’s having trouble finding out what’s going on with them.

Cassie finds out some important things about herself and Evan. She also continues to mature, which she does in each book.

Mind Games, like all of the Cassie Scot books, doesn’t disappoint. I had to read this one in one day and I can’t wait to read the final book in the series.

    I would love to be able to read people’s minds…as long as I could turn it off so I didn’t have to know what everyone was thinking. I can’t imagine a bigger nightmare than always hearing everyone else’s thoughts. *shivers

      I agree. I also would never be able to date someone who could read all my thoughts. What a nightmare!

      You’re very welcome. I’m looking forward to reading the last book except once I’m done with the series I’ll feel like I’ve lost a friend.


      • Christine Amsden June 13, 2014 / 8:19 pm

        I felt that way when I finished writing it. I’m still in search of a new friend, hopefully one who’s at least as good as Cassie was. 🙂

      and, to answer the original question, I think it would be neat to be able to read someone else’s mind! 🙂
