Veterinarian Matty Connors' visions lead her to homicide detective Brian Sullivan once again, despite her resolve to remain anonymous the past four years. Her official work with the police in California resulted in the brutal murder of her fiancé and, since, a recurrent nightmare she barely survives.
Brian, the reputed ladies man of the Sullivan family, has yet to give his heart to a woman until Matty lays claim to it. His black-and-white approach to solving crimes doesn't jibe with Matty's spooky pronouncements or her reputation for alleged infallibility. A wild goose chase searching for a murder weapon casts doubt on Matty's "truths" and threatens their smoldering romance.
Is Brian her nightmare slayer and ultimate truth? When the puzzle pieces fall in place for Brian, will it be too late to save Matty?
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely! Capturing Karma had the right balance of the two tensions: sexual and dangerous. While there is a lot of humor and familial warmth in this book, they are part of the frame for the story and don't interfere with the rising tension. The characters are multi-faceted. We learn interesting details as the characters react to their surroundings and circumstances. The Sullivan family, comprised of gorgeous men and talented women, is a family you want to spend time with again and again. I read series to spend time with the people in them
Who was your favorite character and why?
I liked Matty a great deal. She balances intellect with emotion. She's a vet and shows openness and affection for animals and strong, committed love for humans. Yet she is also wounded and her gift--her "truths"--can't be ignored despite the pain they cause her. She wants justice yet is humane and caring. She's someone you'll want to spend time with. Yeah, yeah, Brian IS gorgeous, but as a woman I want to identify with and care about the heroine.
Have you listened to any of Ted Brooks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Not to my knowledge.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Can a black-and-white, just-the-facts-ma'am police detective find love with a psychic whose visions don't provide who, what, when, where, and why?
Any additional comments?
As with all good mysteries, everything you need to solve it is given to you in this book. For me, part of the joy is getting to the end, looking back, and thinking "Of course!"
