“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 one 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.
Review by Lissa
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review thanks to the Publisher and NetGalley.
You meet Savannah your average teenager. Except, she had a brain aneurysm. They weren't sure she would make it but she pulled through. Savannah isn't alone with her 4 sisters. She's part of a Triplet and then the others are twins. The whole time I'm thinking, how stressful it must be to have five teenagers. That's the mom in me.
They soon learn that each of them have some form of psychic ability but it's stronger when they connect. I found this very interesting. Just the idea that they all connect in such a way.
Now, Savannah ends up liking this super cute guy Riley. They end up realizing they have quite a bit in common.
As you can imagine there's a mystery to be solved. This a really good Young Adult Novel and since it's the first in the series. It will be interesting to see where the author takes the series. Each girl has their own personality and stand out in different ways.
I thought the twist in the story was really great. I can't wait to see what happens!
