Jade Hamilton has visions. Only she and her father, Walt, know. What she sees usually comes true, so when she sees the death of Emmie Linderhoff, a little girl of 5 or 6 years old, she knows she has to stop it. She doesn’t realize when she takes the little girl from the park that day, just what she’s walked into.
Jaded Visions is a well paced mystery/ thriller by author T. L. Jones. Jones, a former police officer, has a unique ability to dig deeply into the character of Jade, bringing forth a strength of character that’s amazing to see. We believe in her and her visions, hoping they will work in her favor and bring the villain to justice before he can kill again.
Jade is a complex person. Her mother died when she was young and it’s been just her and her father for most of her life. Her visions also started when she was little and her father’s loving support and belief in her have made her far stronger than even she realizes.
Ryan Douglas is a police officer. As a friend of Walt’s, he’s brought into the circle of trust when Jade takes Emmie away. Concerned about her being prosecuted for kidnapping, he works hard to win her trust so she will bring Emmie back. He has no doubt she will care for the child, but their safety is the most important thing on his mind—well, of secondary importance to his attraction for Jade.
George Dunleavy is Ryan’s older, wiser partner. He isn’t sure he believes in Jade’s visions, but he certainly believes in his partner.
Jaded Visions is a wonderful novel and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a mystery/ thriller with a paranormal edge. Five Gold Acorns
