Akira has secrets. But so does the town of Tassamara.

Akira Malone believes in the scientific method, evolution, and Einstein’s theory of relativity. And ghosts.

All the logic and reason in the world can’t protect her from the truth—she can see and communicate with spirits. But Akira is sure that her ability is just a genetic quirk and the ghosts she encounters simply leftover electromagnetic energy. Dangerous electromagnetic energy.

Zane Latimer believes in telepathy, precognition, auras, and that playing Halo with your employees is an excellent management technique. He also thinks that maybe, just maybe, Akira can help his family get in touch with their lost loved ones.

But will Akira ever be able to face her fears and accept her gift? Or will Zane’s relatives be trapped between life and death forever?

One little comment in an article she wrote, and her whole career is ruined. Being a physicist and working on her research was the most important thing to Akira with the exception of hiding the fact that she can see and talk with ghosts. When the article threatens her job, she decides to accept an interview with a company in Florida. When she is interviewed for the job, she is unclear what exactly the company does and what they would want her to do. Zane is surprised by Akira and drawn to her at the same time. General Directions, Inc. has many special projects involving psychic gifts and Zane is hoping that Akira will be able to join the ranks and help his family talk with those they’ve lost.

This was a delightful story, full of some of my favorite things; psychics, ghosts and a good romance. The setting of the story, a little town in Florida knows as Tassamara sounded so quaint and peaceful, painting a lovely background for the story. I look forward to checking out the next book in the series by Wynde.

About the Author:

Sarah Wynde hates writing and frequently gives it up as an unhealthy addiction. She just as frequently starts again because daydreaming is more fun when she can share her imaginary worlds with other people. She likes to think of the stories she writes as unexpected fiction—bending, blending, and occasionally breaking genres.
