Two years ago, 21-year-old Kate Edwards became deathly ill and slipped into a coma. While unconscious, she crept into the mind of a missing boy and awoke with the knowledge of his location. Friends and family were skeptical and wary of her new ability to see into the minds of others. Their fears prompted Kate to keep her psychic powers a secret. Feeling alienated, she dropped out of college and spent most of her days holed up at her mother's home.

Now another child has been abducted. Police detective Jared Corbett seeks out Kate for her help in solving the case. Reluctantly, Kate agrees and they must work together to bring 8-year-old Cori Preston home to her family. Although attracted to one another, Jared has a girlfriend with ties to the abduction case and Kate is sarcastic and guarded since her coma. With visions she can't control and an uncontrollable attraction to the detective, she wonders if she can leave the past behind and finally stop hiding from the world. Otherwise, Cori may be lost forever.




First Visions was a superb read that kept me interested and on the edge of my seat. After reading, I can't wait to see what else Heather Topham Wood has in store for Kate.

Two years ago Kate Edwards was sick and in a coma. When she woke she helped find a missing child. Now, Detective Corbett has come to ask Kate for help finding his girlfriends little sister. Will Kate be able to help? Or will she fall through and leave the child in a monsters care?

Kate Edwards is this really self-secluded girl. After bringing home the little boy two years ago, she was hounded by reporters and other people with missing family members. I love that she was strong and put aside her feelings to help find the little girl. It only helped that the detective asking for her assistance was a hottie!

First Visions was a very addicting read. There was never a lag in pacing and I enjoyed the fact that some sections were written from the detectives point of view. The story line was unique and left me dying to know where it would head in the next book.

Overall, First Visions was a fantastic read that kept me mesmerized and up way past my bedtime. If you want a story with a strong heroine with visions of those she knows or has seen, pick this book up as soon as possible! You won't regret it.
