Publication: April 27th 2012
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Two years ago, 21-year-old Kate Edwards became deathly ill and slipped into a coma. While unconscious, she crept into the mind of a missing boy and awoke with the knowledge of his location. Friends and family were skeptical and wary of her new ability to see into the minds of others. Their fears prompted Kate to keep her psychic powers a secret. Feeling alienated, she dropped out of college and spent most of her days holed up at her mother's home.
Now another child has been abducted. Police detective Jared Corbett seeks out Kate for her help in solving the case. Reluctantly, Kate agrees and they must work together to bring 8-year-old Cori Preston home to her family. Although attracted to one another, Jared has a girlfriend with ties to the abduction case and Kate is sarcastic and guarded since her coma. With visions she can't control and an uncontrollable attraction to the detective, she wonders if she can leave the past behind and finally stop hiding from the world. Otherwise, Cori may be lost forever.

First Visions is one of those books that has you thinking about the supernatural world and what lies beyond what the eyes can see. Have you ever had a dream or premonition about someone or something? Have you ever wondered if that dream you had was reality or just a very vivid dream? Kate Edwards is living the life. She is going to college and doing normal things college kids do until one day she gets sick. She feels sick and she is not sure what is happening to her but she feels like death. Then Katie ends up in a coma due to Meningitis. Who would have thought that Meningitis could do that to a person. But it happened to Katie and she is now in a coma and when she wakes up she has a story to tell.
While Katie was in a coma she was able to slip into the mind of a little boy who was kidnapped. Her Psychic visions lead her to where the boy was being held. When Katie woke up she told the police about the little boy and where he was. That is when her normal life changed because the media was all over her and they wanted to know what she was and how she knew where the boy was. With Katie's life in the public she drops out of college and becomes a recluse. Her family and friends treat her differently and she feels like they don't believe her gift. With this knowledge Katie stays to herself and spends her time in her mother's house doing nothing wasting away.
Then another child goes missing and Detective Jared Corbett seeks out the help of Katie. But Katie has been living a life of a recluse and denies she has any abilities. Jared knows she can help him find this missing boy and he is determined to get Katie to change her mind and help him out. Jared eventually wears Katie down and she agrees to help him find this missing child. What Katie never expected was to start to have feelings for Jared. As if life was not hard enough but add Jared into the mix and it is very confusing. See Jared has a girlfriend but he does have feelings for Katie. As they share more and more time together they both begin to have feelings for one another.
Katie can't seem to control her visions or control her feelings for Jared. What will happen between Katie and Jared? Will they find the missing child in time? Come along for a great reading ride with Fist Visions and see what Kate can see! I need to read book two like ASAP to see what happens next.
