Fiction. Romance. Suspense. HTML:

In a place as haunting as it is beautiful, anything can happen...

Laurel Scanlon has the gift of sight, an ability passed down to the eldest daughter of each generation. It is this gift--or curse, perhaps--that drove her own mother mad and has left Laurel unwilling to trust in love...except in her dreams.

Anxious for a new beginning, she decides to retreat to Mimosa Grove, an old estate outside Bayou Jean, Louisiana. Mimosa Grove belongs to Laurel now, bequeathed by her maternal grandmother. Laurel feels the history and tragedy here, and amidst primeval beauty she senses something...unfinished. Folks here know about her grandmother' s gift and treat Laurel with the same reverence--especially when she is able to help the police find a missing girl. It is then that she sees Justin Bouvier--stranger, soul mate, the man who haunts her dreams.

But there is danger here in Mimosa Grove, not from the restless past, but from the deadly present. Laurel must be willing to trust her gift, her love for Justin and, most of all, herself, to stop tragedy and history from repeating themselves.

This supernatural romance follows a young woman who is blessed (or cursed) by Second Sight. When she learns that her grandmother has died and left her the family’s 200-year-old home in Louisiana, she makes a final break with her father and returns there.

It doesn’t take long for the Sight to find her again. She is quickly thrust into the search for a missing child, and meets the flesh-and-blood man who has haunted her dreams. There’s also a ghost story weaving around the edges, plus a suspense thread as elements from her father’s life reach out to threaten her.

Interesting book, but McCall loses points for a couple of things – the “suspense” aspect is never really developed, and there’s no sense of danger, emphasized by the facile way in which McCall eliminates most of the threats. She also never explains where Laurel Scanlon – a woman who has apparently never worked a salaried job – is getting the money to rehabilitate the disintegrating 1814 plantation house she has inherited. And – okay, this is an extremely personal and picky item – at one point she has a character returning to her tiny home town in Oregon – population 756 – and arriving at her parents’ home by taxi. Trust me -- rural Oregon villages of 700 people do not have taxi services.

Combined, these niggling shortcomings dropped my rating from a B+ to a C+. Still an enjoyable read, but it could have been much better. ( )

Mimosa Grove is the first book I have read by Dinah McCall. Dinah McCall is the pen name of Sharon Sala. I loved this book. It was not full of suspense, but I couldn’t seem to put it down. The romance was far fetched, in the sense that, the main characters dream about each other months before they meet. However far fetched, I really enjoyed the characters, they were well developed, fun and they stuck to me from start to finish. I thought the ending was cut a little short, with alot of information within the last few pages. Anyone who is fasinated with the whole thought of psychic powers will enjoy this book. It is well worth the price. ( )

This was good for modern romance/supernatural/suspense book. It's the second of McCall's I've read, and the second with a woman with "the sight". Is that a trend with her? Anyway, the suspense part was decent, and I even bought into Laurel and Justin's psychic connection and immediate intimacy. ( )
