Touching Evil -Amber Garr Review and giveaway

It is a story that is made up from the classic ingredients
that are required to produce a thoroughly enjoyable fast 
paced book with unexpected twists and turns that
Amber Garr has honed to perfection.

The heroine of the book Leila Marx is also the narrator so the 
story is seen through her eyes,experiences and reactions to 
events that unfold on every page.

From the very first page, the story is already at running pace.
What starts out as an apparently brilliant crime story in it's own
right, is unexpectedly turned on it's head with a supernatural twist.
The idea really does work well and is perfectly seamless.

Each character is well written, solid and believable.
As is every descriptive scene and situation. Keeping you
glued and wanting to turn the page to see what happens

All in all 'TOUCHING EVIL' is a well written, 
murder mystery/supernatural story. Full of humour,
horror, suspense and looks at Supernatural characters
in a different light......
It has been an absolute pleasure to read and review this book.

With one touch, Leila can see it all.

Leila Marx is trying to put her life back together after her fiancĂ© is murdered. When Detective Garrick Pearson enlists her help with a difficult case, she is thankful for the distraction and the opportunity to use her talents as a touch clairvoyant. Leila and Garrick quickly delve into the mystery behind a series of missing teenage girls and mummified corpses while discovering their own growing attraction to each other. 

Conner Hoffman is an intriguing lawyer and striking half-demon who enters Leila’s life unexpectedly.  Although her visions are terrifying, she is fascinated by his charm and his legacy. When it becomes evident that the murders are linked to a paranormal event, Conner introduces Leila to a world unbeknownst to ordinary society. She suddenly finds herself immersed in supernatural politics, sorcery, and danger as she becomes the killer’s next target. 

Staying alive will mean relying on friends, accepting the unbelievable, and trusting in her heart again.
