Review and Giveaway: I Can See You by Karen Rose

I Can See You by Karen Rose

rating: 4.5/5.0

New York Times bestselling author Karen Rose delivers her latest pulse-pounding suspense novel, where the line between the virtual world and everyday reality blurs when it comes to murder.

Eve Wilson's face was once scarred by a vicious assault. Terrified and ashamed, she escaped to the online realm, where she could choose the face she allowed people to see. Years later, her outer scars faded and inner scars buried, Eve has fought her way back to the real world and is determined to help others do the same. Now a graduate student moonlighting as a bartender, Eve researches the addictive powers of online communities. When her test subjects begin turning up dead as a result of apparent suicides, she doesn't know where to turn.

Homicide detective Noah Webster is one of the few people who believe the victims are connected murders. Eve becomes Noah's online guide and realizes that the handsome detective may have secret scars as painful as her own. As Eve and Noah chase a killer who is always one step ahead of them, together they try to overcome the tragedies of their pasts and learn to trust again, but they soon discover that danger is much closer than they think.
Wow what a wonderful thrill ride. It doesn't start slow at all and the speed to picks up along the way just about leaves you breathless. The suspense is great, the killer evil, the heroine tough yet in need of saving and the hero, very hot, capable and has a few demons of his own. All of this adds up to another great romantic suspense by Karen Rose.

I loved the characterization, the use of the online world the suspense and of course the cops of the Hat Squad - I can't wait to read more about them. Eve's character debuts in Don't Tell which I have not read, but I don't feel that I missed anything. I will make a point to go back and read that now, but I don't think you have to to read this first installment in Karen Rose's Hat Squad series.
