Book Description:

Eve Wilson was the victim of the villain in Don’t Tell, an assault which resulted in disfiguring injury. After the incident, Eve retreated into the virtual realm, seeking refuge from the public eye. Now, with the help of a surgeon, her face is mostly restored and she has returned to the real world. Now a graduate student, her goal is to research the use of the virtual world as therapy to improve self-esteem. But when a string of suspicious suicides connected to her Internet activities leads homicide detective Noah Webster to her door, Eve is forced back into an intoxicating world of Web sites, alternate identities, and secret passions. A world where her experience and expertise are key … and where she becomes a player in a deadly game, trapped in the fight of her life.

Book Review:

Karen Rose re-introduces Eve Wilson as the heroine of her own story. Eve Wilson has created a new life herself after all the hell she’s been through.

She has plenty of support from her loved ones and friends. Eve works hard at both school and work. She has no time for a love life. Not that she is trying to hard to find someone special. Or maybe Eve has already met that special man.

Things take a turn for worse at her school. Someone is killing woman from her test online subjects.

Noah Webster has been sober for now ten years. He goes regularly to Sal’s bar where Eve works just to see her. Eve is the first woman that makes him get over the pain he’s felt since he lost his wife. Yet Noah keeps to himself because he has no clue as how to approach Eve. What neither knows is that there is a serial killer out to destroy any chance that Eve and Noah have at romance.

Karen Rose is writing goddess. Ms. Rose just knows how to keep readers addicted from the very beginning just like her female characters to the online site Shadowland. I Can See You is one suspenseful thrill ride that has more twists and turns than a theme park rollercoaster.

This book has many back stories intertwined with the main characters storyline. All characters in Ms. Rose’s I Can See You are flawed but that what makes them more realistic. Ms. Rose doesn't leave any of the characters hanging--they all have just the right amount of time to win over all readers. The readers will not be able to put this book down into the very end.

A warning to readers--remember to keep the lights on at night because you just might become paranoid.

I found myself smiling for the small miracles at Eve and Noah’s moments when they started to bond. Even through the fear and suspense from the serial killer.

Noah is worried more for Eve. With nothing going right in the investigation especially since Noah finds his fellow co-workers suspicious. Is there anyone who he can trust with the woman that is slowly winning his heart.

Eve has become a force to be reckoned with. She is not going to stop by and let someone just get rid of her.

I Can See You is my top pick for book of the month.

I give I Can See You a rating of 5 Screams!
