I recently had the opportunity to review this excellent paranormal/mystery from one of the wonderful authors in my network of colleagues. Today is the release day for this book, and the following is my review. If you’re into books that don’t easily fit genre qualifications, but are well written with great characters, you’ll love this. Check out my review, then jump over to Amazon!!
I Can See You by Joss Landry is a remarkable paranormal journey of love. Ten year old Emma overcome torturous fear and the need to hide her secret psychic abilities to help Detective Hank Apple solve the case. Her love helps bond her with her family and the community, and it is this great love that ultimately saves her life. Emma is believable as a precocious pre-teen with the ability to see the future and direct Out of Body Experiences (or projecting). She learns to use this gift to help the vulnerable and charming Detective Apple solve the mystery. Joss Landry keeps the reader guessing and use her very well developed secondary characters to help move the plot. Readers will surely fall in love with these characters! Upon finishing this book, I wanted more, and I hope Landry will consider writing a sequel; perhaps with Emma being a teen or young adult. I felt like readers would love to see how she develops and what other trouble she can get into. The story is authentic and sullen and deals with real issues such as abuse, infidelity, finding work/life balance, and having difficult conversations with loved ones. These are concerns that children and adults in today’s world must face regularly. Landry weaves these themes into a shadowy yet spellbinding tale.

Wow, I your review, Sherri, especially about the part of: “deals with real issues such as abuse, infidelity, finding work/life balance, and having difficult conversations with loved ones.” I didn’t know if anyone would spot this. Very astute. Thank you so much.
