The Delta Girls #1

Book: Sight

Recommend: Yes

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 from Net Galley in an exchange for an honest review

I really enjoyed this book, and it is not what I expected. I initially thought Savannah would be the leader of the group and take charge in most matters. That is not how it happened, each of the sisters had an equally important role to the plot; together stronger, weaker apart (they needed to be 'connected' in order for them to have some sort of understanding of what Savannah was seeing).

What I most liked about this book was how the quick the pace was, it was not slow or very fast that you could not understand what the plot was about!

I really enjoyed Riley's character. He was a perfect combination of mystery and being drop dead gorgeous. I liked how the chemistry between him and Savannah did not take long at all, I also liked the fact that neither characters were in much denial of their feelings for one another, as it prolongs the story further which can either make the story really boring or interesting.
