    Thrilling, Gratifying Read!

    Autumn's gift, reading emotions on objects, can often be a taxing burden - physically, mentally and emotionally. Jake, her best friend is able to lessen the burden, while sparking another type of interest! And then there Det. Detective Shannon Martin... Thrilling, gratifying paranormal romance! Admired how Autumn and Tawnia are both spirited, strong women. Crazy about Jake's strength and his feelings for Autumn. 3 1/2 stars, would have been 4 except: Jake's hairstyle is called locks. Calling them dreadlocks is not a good thing. Voluntarily read ARC for honest review.

    A paranormal detective that you can't stop reading

    A detective with a hint of the paranormal, filled with suspense, love and betrayal. Touch of Rain by Teyla Branton is a compelling story you can’t stop reading until you’ve devoured it whole. This book left a positive imprint on me for sure! A protagonist who can see memories from objects, a shopkeeper next door who is a potential love interest but they're 'just friends', a pregnant sister who discovers she might have a special skill of her own, and a private investigator who is on a suspicious case and needs help. With a pleasant writing style full of details of surroundings, characters and emotions, Teyla keeps us entranced and it's hard to put the book down. How will this case be solved? Already at the start of the story Autumn experiences something unpleasant when she reads an imprint. The chilling cold description of what she sees and feels - emotions and history of someone else - are in a stark contrast with the situation she is currently in. Her antique shop emits a warm and pleasant feeling to the reader, mainly because of the wonderful way with which Teyla describes the details of the surroundings and the history of Autumn and those around her. The group standing at the riverside, selling all sorts of self-made or self-grown wares, wearing t-shirts and no make-up, smiling to those who pass by; you can see it in your mind’s eye. Paranormal as a theme is part of the tale. Autumn has a skill she was born with, for a long time didn’t quite knew she had, then didn’t fully understand, and now is very careful with - not only because it can tire her or is emotionally a very violent experience for her at times, but also because she has used it in the past to help people and wasn’t believed or taken serious. This led to her being seen as a suspect herself in a previous case. As well as people mistrusting her she also suffers from emotional effects, as imprints leave a lasting impression on her. One of these emotional injuries is caused by the fact that she could not save a girl in a previous case. This is one of her motivations to dive deeper into the case at hands now. Autumn is also interested in herbs. Her adoptive parents having been people who had joined a commune once, who easily trusted others, and who are described as hippies at one point in the book, she learnt a lot from them. She’s also mindful about what products she eats, so the terms organic and natural are in use. And did I mention yet that she doesn’t wear any shoes? This case will fascinate you and enrapture you till the end. I had a hard time putting this book down in order to cook and do other daily chores - it just was that compelling. Once you get into the tale- and you dive in very smoothly - you will want to know the characters’ motives. Why have they done what they did? Why did those girls leave with the group? What is Harmony Farms? Will Ethan keep his word? Is Detective Shannon an enemy or a friend? Can Spring and Silverstar escape the abuse? And will they come out alive? What’s up with Inclar? Why does Gabe give me the creeps? Is Harmony the real evil genius behind this all? Can Korin help Autumn in the end? So many questions that are on the verge to be answered and before you know it you’re two-hundred pages into the story. If the descriptions above tingle and tickle your interest, then this book will definitely be the thing for you. Different from a standard detective but all the sweeter because of it, I highly recommend this book, the first of a series, to any fan of detectives, but also to fans of paranormal characters, as well as readers of the darker fantasy tales. I’m looking forward to a new adventure by Teyla’s hand.
