killing me softySummary:

Sadie Perkins has a sixth sense about things—especially people dying. Her clairvoyance has never bothered her until she starts to believe that her visions are causing the deaths of those around her. After her latest relationship ends … badly … Sadie swears off love for good. While searching for an uncomplicated life, Sadie finds her hands full not only with a home renovation project but with defending herself against suspicion of murder. There’s a fine line between predicting someone’s death and causing it. Has Sadie finally crossed that line?
Enter contractor Max Schultz, who is not only good at working on houses, but he’s good at working on Sadie too. Much to Max’s dismay, as he’s trying to win Sadie’s heart, he finds Sadie’s first love, Henry Fitzsimmons, is back in the picture, snooping around.
Sadie doesn’t know which way to turn or who to trust, including herself. Can Sadie clear her name and open her heart all at the same time?


Wow, this was a good book. I’m always a fan of a little “magic” in my books, and Sadie has the special gift of clairvoyance. Her visions are always about death though, so it definitely is a hard gift to have, especially when she begins to blame herself for certain deaths that she thought she could prevent. There is plenty of touching moments in the book, especially with Sadie and her father, but the real crazy storyline is about Sadie’s sister. Wow. I can remember my heart beating like crazy while reading those scenes, especially when Sadie becomes a suspect in her disappearance. Those scenes and the way these characters were created and brought to life are so well-written. I was hanging on to every word, especially near the end, and was shocked at the conclusion/resolution. In addition to that, I loved the romance angles. I actually didn’t know who Sadie would end up with in the end, but was happy how everything came together. I highly recommend this one.
