When Eva Tilling wakes up in the hospital, she’s confused—who in her sleepy little North Carolina town could have hit her with their car? And why?

It seems impossible that anyone would have it out for the town darling. Thanks to her family’s distinguished history and her own unassailable reputation in old-money Jessup, Eva is universally liked. But she has little time to consider the question when she finds that she’s awoken with a strange new skill: the ability to foresee people’s deaths when they touch her.

Eva is struggling to understand just what these visions mean when a slew of murders takes place back home. The victims, all classmates, are discovered alongside eerie messages that tie the incidents to her. There is a killer on the loose, and he is after Eva.

While she is recovering from the hit-and-run, Nate, an old friend, reappears. The two traverse their rocky past as they figure out how to use Eva’s power to keep her friends—and themselves—alive. But while Eva and Nate grow closer, the determined killer grows increasingly frantic in his attempt to get to Eva.

Chilling twists, unrequited obsession, and high-stakes romance drive Melissa Marr’s racy thriller—a story of small-town oppression and salvation.

My Thoughts:

This story is about a teenage girl named Eva who wakes up in a hospital after being struck by a car in what appears to be a hit and run. But was it really an accident or did someone attempt to take Eva’s life? Marr spins a very suspenseful story about Eva’s recovery from her “accident,” and a new power that seems to take over her life – being able to foresee people’s deaths with just one touch.

This is definitely a page turner that kept me on the edge of my seat. The only downfall that I found with this book was that it didn’t seem to explain a lot about a certain character, who I cannot name for obvious reasons. I would have preferred to have had a little bit more of a back story on him.

With that being said, this book kept me up all night in a frenzy to finish reading it. If you are craving a read that’s suspenseful, paranormal, with a little bit of romance, this one’s for you.
