Review: New Revelations by: Heather Topham Wood

New Revelations (Second Sight #2) by: Heather Topham Wood (2012)
238 pages
Genre: New Adult/Paranormal/Romance
Goodreads Summary: Life should’ve been perfect. Kate Edwards had won the heart of police detective Jared Corbett and was coming to terms with her psychic ability. Things were blissful—until the day she met Declan Brayden.

Declan also has psychic visions and wants to work alongside Kate. Kate doesn’t trust the damaged and arrogant seer, but she knows combining their abilities would allow her to help more people. This becomes vital when visions of a missing fitness instructor turn into a race against time to save the girl’s life.

My Review

More Please! This book was so good that I read the next one right after I finished this one, and now I need the fourth book in this series stat, but sadly I have to wait until the fall.

I can’t get enough of Kate Edwards and the awesome police detective that is Jared Corbett. Sigh. I LOVE these characters with just about every fiber of my being. I love them together as a couple and individually. Kate is back and better than ever with her snarky attitude and psychic abilities, not to mention her hot boyfriend Jared. Jared is just as swoon worthy as ever. Also, I can’t forget Kate’s awesome mom and her hilarious best friend who make for great minor characters. I missed these characters so much, and I read the first book only a little over a month ago. They are just so cute and charming and funny.

I love the dialogue and the realness of this book. New Revelations has the perfect amount of humor thrown in, even though Kate is struggling with her visions and deals with horrific violent people. We get another missing person case, and I actually enjoyed this mystery/thriller part of the novel even more than the last. 

I mentioned in my review of the first novel that I loved how unique Kate's visions were and how they were treated by the public. In New Revelations, thanks to the new character Declan, Kate finds out more about her psychic abilities and finally gets some control over them, sort of. This was a great way to advance Kate’s ability in a believable way. The only problem, there is a semi-love triangle thanks to this new guy. Although I like Declan and his sometimes sweet but mostly jerkish attitude, I wasn't a fan how he complicated things between Jared and Kate. But at least it made the book even more realistic. I suppose no relationship is perfect, no matter how much I want it to be.

The ending of this book will BLOW your mind! So I recommend that you have the third book ready to go for after you finish this one. You are going to need it. I finished New Revelations late one night and then as soon as I got home from work the very next day I read the next book.

The only reason I gave this book a 4.5 instead of 5 stars is because there were a couple of very small moments where some of the characters acted a little childish and it seemed weird. But this was only a very tiny blip in the awesome book. 

This book won’t take you long to read and it was the perfect book to get my mind off of real life and to just sit back and enjoy reading about someone else’s. This is a great choice if you are looking for a quick fun read that can and will also get your heart pounding with suspense. Wood did another amazing job at writing a novel with the perfect amount of a little bit of everything, including romance, suspense, psychic powers, and great characters. What are you waiting for? 

** I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. Thanks Heather!
