Life should’ve been perfect. Kate Edwards had won the heart of police detective Jared Corbett and was coming to terms with her psychic ability. Things were blissful—until the day she met Declan Brayden.
Declan also has psychic visions and wants to work alongside Kate. Kate doesn’t trust the damaged and arrogant seer, but she knows combining their abilities would allow her to help more people. This becomes vital when visions of a missing fitness instructor turn into a race against time to save the girl’s life. 

I read book 1 and book 2 back to back so these are my thoughts on both of those books. This story is so much like a contemporary. Even though it has a supernatural element thrown in, I still think of this series as a contemporary series- is that weird? I really, really like it though. Kate is quirky and lovable, Jared is incredible, and the plot pacing is great. The Second Sight series is a keeper for me. 

I enjoyed getting to break through Kate’s defenses. She certainly doesn’t make it easy for people to get to know her, that’s for sure. Jared had to go out of his way multiple times before she even admitted she was ok being friends with him. Her visions do affect her a little too much, I think. She needs to learn a little distance. (this is probably the only thing I agree with Declan about)

Speaking of Declan, I don’t like him. It is also tough, because Heather Wood made Jared out to be such an awesome guy, that it is hard for me to be nice to someone coming in on his turf. I don’t necessarily think Declan  is a bad person, I just don’t like the things he has done since entering Kate’s life. It seems like all he does is mess things up for her. He just needs to back off! Jared is so good for Kate and I think my heart broke a little at the end of New Revelations. I need Jared to be in book 3. I am fully on team Jared and I don’t see anything swaying me from that choice. 

The Second Sight series is great for fans of supernatural, and mystery/crime solving books. (this books isn’t religious, despite the name) Kate uses her gift to help locate missing persons, which is awesome. I loved both the personal life storyline about Kate and her family and friends just as much as the mystery storyline. I flew through these two books. I liked the first one a little more than the second one, but I think that is because Declan wasn’t in the first one. I would give the first book 4-4.5 gavels and the second one 3.5-4 gavels. (overall it is 4) I am super excited to read book 3, but I basically only have two goals for the book. One for the romantic interest and two that Kate’s vision doesn’t come true. I have high hopes. I think the Second Sight series is great!

4/5 gavels

    I know exactly what you mean when you say they feel contemporary! I’ve read some paranormals like that too lately. I always love stories about visions and stuff but this Declan thing has me worried. I hate that “other guy” stuff. I’m sure without some conflict it wouldn’t be interesting, but why, why, why? lol

    Great review! Okay, so I’m adding it to my TBR list. I’ll risk the Evil Declan. 🙂
