Review: RORY’S LOVE by Donna Butler

Aurora, A.K.A. Rory, is a psychic—a professional medium to celebrities that makes good money. Hey, why not use what you got, right?

Yeah, Rory’s got a sweet gig, especially when a regular asks for her help to communicate with his dead grandmother. She has an unrequited love for him, but she’ll go just to be near him. Sometimes communicating with spirits can be hard, especially when nightmares of rape and spirit attacks make the job unbearable and dangerous.

But, still, she doesn’t let that stop her. Pretty soon, her crush quickly turns to lust, and she gets tangled in a love affair.

I love psychic stories, but I felt that this one delved a little too much on the biz of music (some of the jazz and R&B songs I just didn’t recognize.) Plot was lagging and lacked a certain mystery or thrill. Hoping for more of a psychic mystery. Was this really about the life of a celebrity psychic with lavish penthouses, chandeliers, and yachts? The whole thing was mostly on Rory fawning over Curtis and following him around. There was nothing really to it. It was all about Rory’s love.  Kind of disappointing.

My rating: 2 stars
