This was my first read by this author, and I found the world she had built for Psychic Visions rather intriguing – humans with supernatural powers, how can you go wrong with that? I thought Garden of Sorrow started out strong but as the story went on, the suspense continued to hold my attention, however my interest in the main characters, specifically the heroine began to dwindle. I expected the resistance he put up in light of her newly acquired abilitie

Whoa. This is by far the best one yet! So much intensity, drama, SCARY STUFF. Ugh definitely made the mistake of reading this in my room without the lights. T_T I loved the way Alexis struggled through her new abilities, and I loved it even more that Kevin and Stefan (Stefan!!!!) were there to metaphorically slap her back into shape. I read the eighth book first (I know) and the character had similar problems with her fear being h

Kevin Sutherland, is stunned to learn Alexis is unaware of her psychic abilities, his own abilities are needed for his job. But, it's something he doesn't talk about easily. When ...more

This book was not as good as the ones before it, this is due to the shift in plot focus from triller with a little romance to a romance with a wildly elaborate thriller and yes that distinction makes a huge difference. The plot was too complicated at times and made the surprise twist just another WTF moment and there were lots of those by the end of the book. I do hope this is not the pattern for the next book as I almost lost the will to read this one as it just kept pushing the boundary of wha ...more

I have fallen in love with this series. I love the depth to each story, and this one is no different. Each character has similar but different psychic abilities, which makes it interesting. The difference with this book is that the lead characters, Alexis and Kevin, both have psychic abilities although Alexis is new to hers and more powerful than she realizes. Stefan is a central character in all of the books and a bit of a mystery wrapped in an enigma. We do however get to see more of what he i ...more

This is the fourth book in the Psychic Visions series. This is an awesome series if you enjoy stories about psychics and cops working together to stop the bad guys. And maybe I'm weird, but I think those books are great fun! Similar in style to Kay Hooper's Bishop series, and in some ways even better. I would have loved to sit and read this book cover to cover, and if I didn't have a family, and a job, and Christmas to think about, I would have!

I read this story immediately after reading books 1 & 2 from the series, so I might have psychic visions overload...I liked the premise of the story, with Alex finding the bones and her and Kevin searching for answers, I think my favorite character in this story was Alexis' friend Scott. His Irish brogue and humor lightened the story. Where I struggled in this story was withAlexis waffling back and forth, about her abilities and Kevin. Just when I thought she was becoming stronger and moving ...more

As with the other books in this series, I was highly entertained by both the danger and the sense of wonder that Alexis experiences as she begins unlocking and understanding her power. Her interactions with Kevin, who willingly embraces his gift and has learned to hone and refine it, kept me captivated. And of course there's Stefan... I think I want to read his story soon.

The mystery this time around was nicely creepy. Alexis' insights into the victims is heartbreaking. The killer is just shudde

I have one word amazing. The first three were great. This one so far my favorite. Just when I was sure who the villain was....then came the twist. It kept me on the edge every moment. I am looking forward to the next book. Can the next book top this one! I guess I will find out. This book is recommended for a more mature reader, in my opinion.

Nice paranormal suspense

I won this book in a contest. This was the first time I read this author and I liked this book. Mystery, romance, and suspense are always appealing to me. I found the theme intriguing, psychics including those who are cops using their abilities to save others and fight evil even though it can take a lot from them. The heroine was coming into her own awareness of her abilities so we got to learn the psychic ways from her love interest and a mentor. The pace was fast, grabb

I started off enjoying these books but they are all too similar in story line. I will still read the next installment as I already have it on my kindle. I gave it a 3-star as it is still somewhat entertaining.

Wonderful story

The power of the mind is a wonderful thing. I enjoyed Ms Mayer's story and plan on purchasing more of this series. Love triumphs! Looking forward to reading Stefan's story.

Completely in love with this series. It is well written and the characters are easy to get attached to. I find myself rooting for them. Hope the rest of the series is as awesome as what I have read so far.

Not as good as the first three books.

There were too many curse words for me to enjoy the book. I think they are unnecessary. I am glad to go onto the next book.

Wow I can honestly say I'd dislike living in Dale Mayer's imagination , Garden of Sorrows was way creepy and sad. Don't know if I would have handled things as well as Alexis did. Am really enjoying The Physic Suspense Series

"Garden of Sorrow" is the 4th book in the Psychic Visions series. With a fantastic plot and realistic characters, Dale keeps you turning the pages in this psychic vision crime novel. Although this is a series, this book can be read as a stand alone, but beware you WILL want to read them all. Highly recommended to all readers.

I was not disappointed, Dale Mayer delivers!
I found this book so relate able, in terms of our inner fears paralyzing us from proceeding & succeeding.
The characters are realistic and Alexis and Kevin reminds me of my relationship, LOL, it's all good.
I was pleased that it took me a few guesses before I figured out the villain, great twists and turns.
I can't wait for the next book!

What a Dick line... "here is the one and only spare bedroom, I don't get many visitors, at least none that sleep in here." Really?!? I would have left, after calling him a "Dick"... not slept with him! Ruined! He sucks now. I had to skip the following love scene... I might have puked.
Well, it was still really good. Lots of psychic mumbo jumbo:)
