Series: The Delta Girls
Author: Juliet Madison
Publisher: Diversion Books
Publication Date: 07/14/2015
Synopsis from Goodreads: I spent my birthday fast asleep. In a coma to be exact.
When Savannah wakes up after two months in the hospital, she sees a whole lot more than expected, things that could put those close to her at risk.
The five Delcarta sisters have never believed in the paranormal, not like their woo-woo mother. Instead they believe in the power of sisterhood, of romance, and rebuilding their lives after their father’s mysterious disappearance nine years earlier. Starting anew in the small town of Iris Harbor, they see potential in all.
But Savannah’s awakening after having surgery on a life-threatening aneurysm brings a unique ability to the Delcarta sisters–together, each can predict the future with o
ne of the five senses. And Savannah has the gift of sight. A serial arsonist has been terrorizing the tight-knit community, and the Delcarta sisters have their suspicions on who could be to blame, including a boy who starts as an adversary to Savannah and then very quickly becomes her whole world. Investigating these crimes, trying to stop them before the next flame is sparked will call upon Savannah to use her newfound abilities with the help of her sisters, and will put each of their lives in danger.
This stunning new paranormal series blends the sweetest of romances with breathless suspense, and introduces five young women who share a haunted past, an extraordinary gift, and an uncertain future.

WOW – just WOW. I’d had a good feeling about this book and I was so right! I’m a huge fan of “supernatural” stories – ghosts, witches, psychic phenomena, etc. This is one of the best I’ve read in a long time.
One of the things I like is that where most books have psychic phenomena start occurring because a person reached a certain age at which their powers were to manifest or because they were born to certain parents, etc., Sight actually has the phenomena occurring as the result of a life-changing event. It’s refreshing to see this, as many of the people we hear about having psychic abilities actually encountered some sort of life-altering trauma such as a near-death experience.
Sight is very well written and keeps the reader entertained. Whether you are laughing at Savannah’s interaction with her sisters, furious at something happening with Riley, or sad at the interaction taking place during a psychic phenomena, you are entertained. There is even a bit of a who-done-it/mystery element to the book which is pretty awesome as well. I admit, there was a point in this book where I had to fight not to cry because I was reading it in public and having that a-ha moment when I had a theory on who the “bad guy” was. The fact that this is Book One in a series makes me very happy, because it means there will be more of these awesome books!
Sight will be released on July 14, 2015 – be sure to grab a copy for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!!
I received a copy of this book free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
