Synopsis

I spent my birthday fast asleep. In a coma to be exact.

When Savannah wakes up after two months in the hospital, she sees a whole lot more than expected, things that could put those close to her at risk.

The five Delcarta sisters have never believed in the paranormal, not like their woo-woo mother. Instead they believe in the power of sisterhood, of romance, and rebuilding their lives after their father’s mysterious disappearance nine years earlier. Starting anew in the small town of Iris Harbor, they see potential in all.

But Savannah’s awakening after having surgery on a life-threatening aneurysm brings a unique ability to the Delcarta sisters–together, each can predict the future with one of the five senses. And Savannah has the gift of sight.

A serial arsonist has been terrorizing the tight-knit community, and the Delcarta sisters have their suspicions on who could be to blame, including a boy who starts as an adversary to Savannah and then very quickly becomes her whole world. Investigating these crimes, trying to stop them before the next flame is sparked will call upon Savannah to use her newfound abilities with the help of her sisters, and will put each of their lives in danger.

This stunning new paranormal series blends the sweetest of romances with breathless suspense, and introduces five young women who share a haunted past, an extraordinary gift, and an uncertain future.

*I received this Advanced Readers Copy from NetGalley for an honest review*

When I came across this book on NetGally I decided to give it a shot because it sounded good but sadly I was expecting a little more. This book was a good book and it held my interest but  this book had major potential that it haven’t quite lived up to my expectations.

This story is about five sisters whose father disappeared on them nine years ago. The main character in this book Savannah had a surgery for a brain aneurysm which let her be in a coma for two months. When she woke up, her family decided to move to a new town and to start a new life. While coping with their new lives, the girls begin to discover that they have supernatural powers. One sense for each of the five sisters predicts the future and past. The powers helped them with something- can’t say more or I give a spoiler and that is not what I do!

I loved the relationship the girls had with their mother, it reminded me of my relationship with my mom…. The ending was good and I would want to see what happens in the next book. This book was a really quick read, it took me just a few hours to read it. I’ve read it after work when I had to stay late.

I didn’t like Savannah much and I wonder if I would like any of the other sisters, I do hope so but I also found Sasha annoying because she was way to girly for me and had to many opinions. Why I only gave a three heart/star rating was because I would have loved a little more suspense and I would have loved if the characters in this book was a little older. Looks like I’m more into the Older Young Adult books or New Adult books right now.In my  eyes this book is made more for the younger YA readers. I adore the cover it catches your eyes instantly there and there is some romance element in this book but I needed more, some dirty talk and smut would have been nice for me. There is nothing smutty in this book that is why I say it’s more for the younger YA’s between the ages of 10-14 I think.
