Review: FIRST VISIONS by Heather Topham Wood

Kate had woken from her coma after contracting bacterial meningitis. But she didn’t come back from the dead the same. She was not gifted with the second sight, mostly seeing images of the past rather than the future (sees inside people’s heads.) What the heck was she supposed to do with this gift?

Now a part-time college student, Kate gets a visit from a police detective regarding an article about her finding the lost boy while she was in the coma. There’s been another kidnapping of an 8-year old girl. Because this is personal for the detective, he desperately wants her help. What he didn’t understand was that finding that boy was a one-time thing for Kate and it hasn’t happened again since. Sometimes her “gift” really sucked. It made her a social pariah, an outcast.

Then the vision came to her. She saw the girl. She was alive. But for how long?

On a mission to find the girl, Kate works with the handsome detective while battling her feelings toward him as well as he social awkwardness.

I liked her snarky, sarcastic wit, especially when it came to the skeptical girlfriend; however, it felt like there was more focus on her detective crush than the actual case. There weren’t hardly that many visions either. Still, this was a pretty good read.

My rating: 3 stars
