What she doesn’t exactly what he needs.

Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can’t control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she’s tapped into a killer—or rather, his victims. Each woman’s murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body.

Hey! I'm giving a 3-star rating to a book that isn't a total Meh Fest! Pretty amazing huh?! This one is actually pretty entertaining *gasps*

You know what's even more surprising? I fully expected to dislike this. First of all it's a mystery, a genre I gave up on ages ago after years of bingeing on it. And no you are not dreaming, this is shelved as romantic suspense. Yes it is. And I read it. And didn't fall into a sugar shock-induced coma. And still gave it 3 stars. Please refrain from faint

Tuesday's Child by Dale Mayer is the 1st book in her paranormal Psychic Visions Series and I am happy that I decided to continue with this series after receiving a free copy for an honest review by the author, which was the 10th ....Into the Abyss

This story revolves around Samantha Blair, a psychic woman who sees and feels people being murdered. She's wary about telling the police about these visions as she's been "burnt" when she previously had offered a

I thought this was edited by several people?

For free you get:

~ typos
~ pronoun confusion (or surprise gender changes, as I like to call them)
~ grammatical issues and some poor sentence structure
~ nonsensical sentences
~ repeated lines and conversations
~ unnecessary POVs
~ story inconsistencies
~ a killer that disguises himself as elderly by wearing a crazy hat (don't ask me)

And so much more. I haven't even finished the book yet. I stopped at what I think is the beginning of a sex scene (I know, rig

A great book about a psychic woman who has visions of people being murdered from the victims perspective. A policeman realises she could help him with one of his cases. They team up in more ways than one and its a thrilling ride right up to the last chapter. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and would love to read more books about these characters, it would make a great crime series. I'll be checking out more books by this author who has a great gift for writing stories.

This story missed the mark, for me. I liked the plot and the characters, but they seemed to contradict themselves at times, which made it hard for me to connect. I'm wavering between 3 stars and 4 because I felt like the author could have done a better job defining the characters, their motivations, their thoughts, their actions, and their dialogue.

To add to that, there were some major editing issues. Misplaced quotation marks all over the place made me re-read several spots to figure out what t

Looking at Max you'd think she was either homeless or that she has seen more in this world than anyone should. Max has secluded herself for a reason. She's a psychic and experiences everything that a current serial killer does to his victims. She wants to tell the police but is afraid of the consequences. Last time people found out about her abilities she was miserable. But Max couldn't just let the killer continue without trying to catch him so she goes into one of Portland's police station.

This is the first book I've read by Dale Mayer and I found the story, writing and character good.
However, I thought the Author 'rushed' the ending to 'tie things up'.

I still want to read the second book in this series because Ms. Mayer's imagination and story-line has intrigued me.

I read this book at camp. I actually finished yesterday, but.... no internet!! Yes, i know, I was also a bit lazy, the computer wasn't in my building...

Anyway, the book was good, i guess. But the idea was not that original. I read a book quite similar to this one. I mean it was better than others, just not the best.
If you like thriller-type or whatever, i guess this is a maybe type of book.
Another free paranormal download, as I apparently still haven't learnt my lesson, that turned out to be another meh-fest with an irritating heroine, a romantic interest with whom she shares no chemistry and some incredibly strange writing choices.

Suffering from visions of the violent deaths of a serial killer's victims, Sam has retreated from the world. Apparently (according to her) shunned due to her abilities and having no friends (which is nonsense as pretty much everyone in the book seems to

I've read other books where the protagonist is psychic - some good, some bad. This one I really enjoyed. The author has written an intriguing story that embodies suspense, mystery, romance, and paranormal elements all in one that makes this book a real page-turner. It's a well-written story that moves at a good pace, always keeping the reader engaged. Also, the characters that are likeable and well developed, especially Samantha, a very complex individual. What Samantha experienced each time a p ...more

**I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review**

Review: I was so excited to dive into this book! Although I read a lot of different genres now, my first love was the mystery/suspense/murder type novels involving the police or FBI. In fact, Kay Hooper's Bishop/Special Crimes series is one of my favorite series of all time, and it also deals with psychics. In Tuesday's Child we meet Samantha Blair, who has an unusual "gift"; she ends up trapped in the minds of vi

Tuesday's Child is a Mystery Thriller, with a touch of Paranormal. This read was a little different than what I normally get into, but the beautiful cover pulled me, so I had to read it. I'm so glad I did. Tuesday's Child sent chills up my spine. Sam is a beautiful, twenty-eight-year-old woman, who works for a veterinarian hospital. She would rather be around animals than people since she’s psychic. Sam's psychic gifts are more of a curse than a gift as she feels what her victims feel. And she n ...more

Psychological/thriller romance

I enjoyed this book, it was a good read although I couldn’t help but be reminded of Dream Man by Linda Howard. It has a lot of similarities to Dream Man but managed to be different in other aspects. You will not know who the serial killer is until near the end, which keeps you turning the page just to find out who is behind the murders.

I have to say Samantha’s character was a bit cold to me (I understand that due to her gift, she had withdrawn from the world but s

After finishing this book, I was quite surprised to learn that this author is multi-published. It reads more like a first draft of a beginning author. Having recently read several "free" downloaded books, I am becoming increasingly frustrated with lack of proper editing. Thus my harsher than usual rating. It seems as though publishers are churning out book after book without taking the time to make sure they are putting forth a good product. This book is no exception. It's bumpy and disjointed. ...more

"Monday's child is fair of face, Tuesday's child is full of grace", or at least that's how the rhyme goes.

The book, Tuesday's Child by Dale Mayer, while not totally full of grace, did tell a compelling story.

Samantha Blair has psychic visions. She sees death. Even more horrific, she sees it from the victim's point of view, as it is happening. She experiences every stab, every slice, every broken bone. She doesn't just feel the pain, every cut, bruise and broken bone manifests on her own body, th
I picked up this book for free, thought the blurb sounded interesting and gave it a shot. Initially the book and the premise reminded me a little of a Cynthia Eden book (and I’m a huge fan of hers). I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect since I didn’t read any reviews before starting. Tuesday’s Child is the story of Sam who through her psychic abilities has to live through a serial killers violent murders. She actually becomes each victim while the event is taking place and then she is able to tr ...more

I LOVED this book! I received a copy of Tuesday's Child in exchange for an honest review. I've never read any of the authors works before and it is safe to say I will be purchasing the rest of her books very soon! Tuesday's Child is a well written and engaging book. I was instantly captivated by the main character and her story. I couldn't put it down.

This is one of those lovely, dark books that's gruesome and bloody and just somehow hits the spot. Sam is isolated and lonely and her visions are sapping the strength from her. The saddest thing is that she doesn't know how to help herself. She's managed to keep herself on a relatively even keel but she's on the verge of breaking - both physically and mentally.

Who wouldn't be, really, when they're forced to live the last moments of different women's lives? Painful, hopeless, agonizing moments th

Not bad for a freebie and I may eventually look up the rest of the series ... if it goes on sale. The bones of a good story are here and I did want to find out what happened enough to keep reading. But if I do pick up book 2 and still find the same editing and writing problems, I would likely be disinclined to continue. At one point Samantha is telling the vet something about her dog Sarge that made me think, "When did that come up?" It happens later in the book and the reference

I cannot write anything new which hasn't been written in the description of the book. The most I can say is it is readable. I don't think a reader would put this on DNF shelf since it is really short and a fast read, but it isn't anything special either.

The only thing which stands out is the way Samantha Blair gets her visions. It is really creepy and it is heartbreaking when you remember she is living alone, has a part-time job and she thinks she hasn't got anyone in the world. She gets her vi

It's been a long time since I read a book I could not put down -- and am happy to say Tuesday's Child was one of them!!!! I loved the fact that our heroine, Sam, was the one with the angst (I'm so sick of hero's with angst who are 'never good enough' or are terrified of relationships!) while being very likable, the hero, Brandt, was wonderful -- hilarious with his mother and so good to Sam, and Brandt's mother and the rest of the folks at the 'assisted living' place almost stole the show -- they ...more

This is currently free on Amazon. I reallly enjoyed this paranormal thriller, great story line, interesting characters and a really sweet romance that neither dominates the story nor gets in the way. The h who has very little experience and control over her psychic ability both sees and experiences violent murders as they occur. The H is a detective on special assignment looking for a serial killer. And action!!

So I like the idea, it worked. I'm quite picky with crime, with the likes of John Connolly and Harlan Coben monopolising my book cases, I'm not easily impressed. However, I like the premise, there needs to be a bit more of a focus on particular development of tone through more description of setting. It feels a bit rushed where more atmosphere is needed.

I really loved this story. The way the heroine has to deal with her gift is some times painful to read but when she finally has some one to fight for her and to help her, it is so touching. I cried for her and was over joyed when they fell in love.

The hero threatens her dog to get her to come out of her house and I stopped reading. Not because I thought he'd actually shoot the dog, but because he was amused by her fear and... that's just solidly creepy.

“Staring in confusion around her, fear, panic, and finally, recognition seeped into her dazed mind. Early morning rays highlighted the water stains shining through the slap-dash coat of whitewash on the ceiling and the banged up suitcases, open on the floor. An empty room – an empty life. A remnant of a foster-care childhood.   She was home.” 3 likes
“He willingly offered her every part of himself for her pleasure. Sam took full advantage. Pushing up on his shoulders, he rolled over onto his back, swinging her on top of him. Sam laughed joyously and accepted the invitation. Using her fingers, her lips and her tongue, she traced, teased, and tormented Brandt until he could stand it no more.
Without warning, Sam found herself flipped over, tucked under him, her legs hooked over his hips. Brandt waited until Sam gazed into his eyes. Then dropping his forehead to hers, he plunged deep.”
