Lotus Petals Book Review and Giveaway


Synopsis:  
The dead are easy, it’s the living you have to worry about.

Olivia Harmon keeps to herself. As an empath, her power not only allows her to experience other people’s emotions, but also influence them. It’s a heavy burden to carry, and the main reason Olivia has always been more comfortable around the dead. As a small town funeral director and assistant county coroner, she’s able to keep her distance from the day to day drama of the living.

Having power doesn't always mean you're in control.

After a series of seemingly unrelated deaths, Olivia discovers a hidden connection that puts her right in the middle of the investigation. Using her gifts to free an innocent girl from the grips of a powerful dark magic should have made her the hero. Instead, Olivia becomes the prime suspect.

Now the center of attention, Olivia must choose between keeping her distance and maintaining the carefully constructed life she's built or doing what's right and risking everything.

Purchase: Amazon 
My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Olivia Harmon lives in a sleepy little town where nothing ever happens...usually.  Olivia and her best friend Charlie are witches, something that isn't very common in the town.  Because of Olivia's empathetic powers, she feels safer taking care of the dead, after all the dead don't have feelings, right?  Olivia currently owns and runs the local funeral home as well as works as the county's coroner.  But when her seemingly quiet business has a sudden stream of dead witches she begins to uncover the sinister truth about what's really going on.

As if she needs more gossip going on about her breakup with Brad, an officer in the police force.  In walks the handsome and mysterious Richard Bishop, her attraction to him is instant and the more they work together, the closer they become.  Will Rick be able to solve the case and keep both Charlie and Olivia safe? Why has Charlie's precognition stopped working?

I was immediately drawn into the story from the very beginning.  I love the strength that Olivia had to do what needed to be done, even when she was on the brink of breaking down.  There's lots to love about this book, but without giving away too much, when you finally have all of the answers you'll definitely say why didn't I think of that!  This was an enjoyable rainy day paranormal mystery that everyone will enjoy.
