I thought this was edited by several people?

For free you get:

~ typos
~ pronoun confusion (or surprise sex 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, right

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'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
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

**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
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.

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.

The level of detail was amazing! The author showed you what happened without too much telling. I felt as if I were truly there experiencing what S
Debbie (at) I Heart YA Books
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
"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
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
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

Thriller Romance

I would recommend Tuesday's Child to other readers that enjoy a fantastic psychological thriller A psychological thriller with just the right amount of romance. Samantha a young psychic who hasn't had the easiest life, an outcast with strong abilities that take her unwillingly to the darkest depths. Brandt a handsome cop searching for a serial killer. I won't spoil the story with too much information, but after. reading this gripping page turner I am looking forward to reading mo

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

In ihrer abgelegenen Hütte am See fühlt Samantha Blair sich einigermaßen sicher. Hier kann sie sich erholen, wenn eine der üblen Visionen, die sie durchleiden muss, sie aus den Klauen lässt. Immer wieder erlebt Sam die letzten Minuten von Opfern mit, die ihr Leben auf gewaltsame Weise verlieren. Doch welcher Polizist glaubt schon einem Medium. Nach einer besonders schlimmen Nacht entschließt sich Sam doch zur Polizei zu gehen, denn es scheint immer der selbe Killer zu sein, der seine Opf
This book has all the ingredients of a hit movie. It has everything you could possibly want in a good story. The character of Sam broke my heart. She's a woman in pain and I hurt for her, what she goes through is nothing short of horrific. To cope she stays on the fringes of society, never really involving herself and never making friends. She is lonely and afraid but it is a life that she is used to. At the same time she has a core of steel running through her and a strength that you can only a ...more
This book snares you from the first chapter. Samantha is a psychic that gets pulled into the last moments of a victims brutal death by a killer that has been taking lives for years that Brandt has been searching for and never found. Sam is a character you can't help but let your heart go out to. She has nothing because she is always trying to run and never get close to people. She doesn't want anyone to know what she really is, thinking that they will treat her badly. Her visions literally show ...more
3.5 stars

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.

Detective Brandt Sutherland only trusts hard evidence, yet Sam’s visions offer clues he needs to catch a killer. The more he learns about her incredible abilities, however, the clearer it becomes that Sam’s visions have put her in the killer’s line of fire.

Beth Cutwright
Dale Mayer is a paranormal thriller writer and Tuesdays Child grabbed my attention from page one. It was a psychological thriller centering around Samantha Blair, a young psychic who didn't understand her visions. Not only was she young and untrained, she possessed tremendous gifts from the spiritual realm. Her visions were caused by violence and her body would join with the victim's of a serial killer. What they experienced near death physically occurred to Samantha as well. She felt their pain ...more

I like the concept of this book, and the others in the series. I enjoy when there is a little 'more' to a character, because I'm always curious to find out how the author will integrate that 'more' into the story. Sam is very reclusive because of the nature of her abilities. I like that about her. I also like the very real way she connects better to animals than people...animals Do provide unconditional love and acceptance. She needs this because she experiences horrific things ( spoil ...more

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 character is described as a waif with a spine of steel that has survived horrific things, yet she needs someone to take care of her.
And even though she is so emaciated from the toll her visions take on her body, strangers try to feed her, and her clothes hang on her body like a sack on a stick, she somehow retains curves in all the right places.

The detective has creatively named the serial killer he is trying to catch "The Asshole" causing him confusion whenever anyone uses the term- along
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

A Grisly Serial killer on the loose for over a decade. A psychic that has unfortunately connected to his victims in the most horrifyingly way possible. By feeling their terror and pain mentally and physically the injuries of the victims appear on her body as much as on her soul. As she tries to heal after each episode it takes a little piece of her each time. Perhaps with the help of a handsome Detective, another veteran psychic two 2 BFF’s of the canine caliber they’ll be able to stop the kille ...more
3.5. I enjoyed this book. I tend to like all things psychic or paranormal. This started off a little weird for me. The psychic actually experiences violent murders as though she is the victim and wakes up covered in wounds and blood. That seemed extreme. And this chick is described as a homeless-looking waif-- not very attractive sounding.

I did get sucked into the story line of the cop on the hunt for a serial killer who is open to help from the psychic everyone else dismisses as nuts. There's
B.L. Hewitt

In Tuesday’s Child, Mayor, gives his psychic character, Samantha Blair, far-reaching capabilities. She had only has visions of grisly murders, she actually feels them as if they are being committed on her body, complete with pain and blood, whoa! This is kind of a new twist, and for what it’s worth I think a really good one. Of course as is typical, the Portland Police Department, gives her story very little credibility, but a savvy cop named Brandt, has worked with psychics before and wants to

“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.”
