Sometimes what you can’t see means everything.
A young woman is missing. In desperation, her parents turn to Autumn Rain for help. Autumn reads imprints – emotions mysteriously left behind on certain treasured objects. But will this ability enrich her life or destroy it?
Autumn isn’t sure—her life has become far from normal—but or people whole loved ones are missing, her talent might mean the difference between life and death. Even the infuriating Detective Martin has asked for Autumn’s help, though at times she feels more like a suspect than a consultant. Too often Autumn find herself retreating to her antiques shop and the company of her best friend, Jake Ryan, to avoid notice.
But soon more than one woman is missing, and Autumn teams up with private eye Ethan McConnell to investigate their disappearance. Ethan’s attraction to her is a pleasant change from Jake’s frustrating offers of friendship, but once Autumn takes that first step, she sets in motion a series of events that risk not only her own life but the lives of those she cares most about.
Sounds like something emotionally moving and all around really good story.
I can't wait to buy this book and read it. I'm so excited for a clean paranormal and I'm really glad it's available. Rachel is a master storyteller.
This is such a fabulous cover! I can't wait to get my hands on it. I haven't read a paranormal romance by this author. Is it her first?
Loved this great sequel that bring so many different aspects of the gift she has. I love the way she uses it to solve crimes, find out secrets and knows how others feel about her.
A different yet compelling read from Rachel Ann Nunes. Imprints begins at a rapid pace and has you drawn in from the beginning. Autumn was a feisty head strong heroine and even though she was arrogant in my opinion, I ended up liking her anyway. She was driven to help others regardless of the pain to herself and I loved that about her. The paranormal aspect of the book was fascinating and I had a hard time putting it down. I'm glad I read the previous story so I knew about Autumns life, family and background, so it seemed like visiting old friends again.
I really enjoyed this book. Different than a lot of what is out there in LDS fiction. The main character wasn't as annoying as I would expect for someone with paranormal abilities and green/organic leanings (I'm showing my biases here). The mystery moved well and kept me interested.
Interesting premise for this story where the main character can sense emotions and memories by touching certain objects. She was also pretty quirky in some ways (like never wearing shoes) – a few times her views almost came across as a bit preachy, but mostly it made for an interesting character.
