5.0 out of 5 starsone of LH's best

This was the book that started my obsession with Linda Howard's books. I read this almost 2 decades ago, and I bought the e-Book because my paperbook was getting really tattered from too many re-reads. The story still stood the test of time even after all these years. The mystery, the romance, the instant connection between H/h that's classic Linda Howard, it's all there.
4.0 out of 5 starsCall her Sweeney, because she doesn't like her first or middle names.

Another good paranormal romantic suspense from Linda Howard. Sweeney had a lousy childhood and has distanced herself from human emotional interaction. But, her life changed a year ago, at first she didn't really notice. Traffic signals turn green upon her approach, parking spaces open when needed, her plants thrive (no matter what she does), she's cold all of the time and her art has changed, but one day she sees someone, he looks a little off, she recognizes him, she attended his funeral a month ago, she's seeing ghosts. She moves to New York City, it's warmer and since she doesn't really know anyone in town, she doesn't have to worry about reacting to ghosts of acquaintances. But, the changes in her life aren't finished yet, she starts have feeling, particularly with regards to her representative's soon-to-be-ex and she is painting real murder scenes in her sleep. But, someone doesn't want her able to finish her most recent painting.
This book was recommended in the Facebook J/P Heroes book group. At first, I was iffy . . . the price got me thinking about whether or not I needed the book. But thank goodness I decided to treat myself.
This is now on my all-time favorite list and my favorite Linda Howard book!
Sweeney and Richard were beautiful together. Their chemistry, their interactions, the way he treated her . . . wow! Absolutely LOVED!
I'm a big fan of Linda Howard’s other books but this book was not her best at all. The characters weren't loveable. The main male character was a borderline stalker, as he used his power to gain her records and personal info. The book is also flooded with some dark themes: childhood sexual abuse, multiple affairs, a woman has an abortion, a man slaps his wife in the face. Her romance books are usually perfectly written, but I found this romance to be poor. The characters weren't loveable or memorable.
4.0 out of 5 starsRead it for the romance, not the suspense

This is the second Linda Howard book I've read in as many days, and again, I am impressed with the chemistry she is able to generate between her main characters. It would have been very easy to make Sweeney into a helpless waif who was not able to cope with the psychic phenomena she was witnessing, and to make Richard a one dimensional knight to the rescue of a damsel in distress. Instead, Sweeney is an independent character who wants to deal with the disturbing violent visions she gets on her own. Richard sees himself as a knight, but is attracted to Sweeney's beauty and spirit, not her temporary helplessness. The evolving relationship between Sweeney and Richard proceeds quickly and is described in erotic detail by Linda Howard. The most suspense in the novel resolves around Sweeney's and Richard's relationship: Will he get his divorce from the manipulative Candra? Will he and Sweeney be able to wait until the divorce before they consummate their relationship? These questions are much more intriguing than the questions that surround the so called mystery of Sweeney's visions. She not only sees dead people, she paints them too. When one of Sweeney's visions hits close to home, it is fairly obvious how the plot will be resolved. Linda Howard apparently has no need for red herrings, so the mystery of "Now You See Her" is flat, if not non-existent. However, the relationship between Sweeney and Richard is the real reason to read this book because their growing attraction for each is what drives the plot.

I have read this years ago in book form and downloaded it on my Kindle, a truly great read, it has everything drama, murder, mayhem and romance. Love all Linda Howard’s books and wish she would write more not seen any new books of hers for awhile.
