Book Description:

​Nicole Baker is a quiet girl – the type of person who is seldom noticed by anyone. That is until one day she discovers she has the unique ability to see images move on photographs. At first, she uses her ability to entertain friends at parties and work. Then senior detective Paul Hammond learns of her ability and enlists her help in a case of unsolved murders that he has not been able to make any headway on.

Carl Kadner, a rookie reporter with the local paper is investigating the murders as well. And he learns what it takes to be the kind of reporter he wants to be when he puts himself in danger for the sake of the story. It is only when Carl, Nicole and Detective Hammond pool their resources that things start making sense.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Paul is a detective and is given the lead on a possible homicide case but all they have is a woman’s arm. There are no leads until another woman is killed, and a woman named Nicole suddenly has a gift with which she can look at a picture and see what happened when it was taken. She’s able to give some clues to the police.

As the serial killer continues to search for women who fit his criteria, Paul and Nicole fall into a relationship that seems to be good for both of them. The killer ends up in a relationship with a girl named Katy. It’s a strange relationship but it works for them.

Carl is a rookie reporter who is also on the case. He does some investigating on his own and always seems to be right there with the police investigation if not a little ahead of them.

I thought Mind’s Eye was good from the beginning. It kept my interest and was not only suspenseful and cringe-worthy but funny. All of the characters were well-developed and unique. There were a couple of unanswered questions which was a little frustrating but it still had a good ending. It would have been a faster and even better read if the dialogue had been edited. It was often difficult to know who was talking which slowed me down quite a bit. Despite the dialogue, I recommend Mind’s Eye.
